FRIDAY, JUNE 6, 10.17 Hopes Increase For Jap Treaty High Quarters Want Peace Conference to Open by Year's End BY MILES VAUGHN United Press Staff Corrvspoiulcnf. TOKVO. June 6. (UP)— There Is ugrcasme )io]» here that i\ peace ff^fercnce between Japan and Hie AlHW powers can be opened before Ui c end of this year, and thai a treaty, can b e signed early in 1348, this correspondent, learned in Inchest quarters. Hccent developments in the United States, where powerful norgans of public opinion are swinging behind Gen. iDauglas MacArthnr's .sUind in favor of a peace treaty "at (he earliest possible lime" followed by complete withdrawal of allied troops, nre viewed here as most encouraging. The recommendation of Herbert Hoover that a peace with Japin be concluded at once, regardless of the situation in .Europe, was especially welcome, as it i K fell, that Mr. Hoover accurately reflects the realities in the Par East. 'A peace treaty with Japan should offer no great difficulties, according to information given to this correspondent, as there are really no especially complicated fiiiul-i- incntnl problems left to be solved. Potsdam defined Japan's postwar boundaries, limiting the former empire to the home islands of Honshu, Hokkaido, Shikoku and Kyushu ,nnd possibly some adjacent islets. This declaration, indeed contains in itself the broad terms of what should be in the peace treaty, a s ir its spirit and provisions are followed, the task of "the peace- meiers should be fairly easy, so ff|Bas fundamentals are concerned. Cjfncrally speaking, it is antici- P'TBI here that Russia will retain control of the Kurllc islands «nd Southern Saghalien (Karafuto), which were promised the U.S.S.-R. in the long-secret Yalta agreement, and that the United States will retain such rights as she may wish in the Uynkyits, including Okinawa, which probably will be flic chief mcricim base in the extreme West- CLUB 61 (Formerly Midnitc Ilin) TUKS.

(UP)—'the old Seolt Street Methodist Church in downtown Little Rock, its Sunday School annex and a five-apartment divelliiiu suffered heavy fire |d«.j:iii(je yesterday. The brick churcli and its wooden Sunday School annex were unolfi- cialty valued at $75,000. The fire was •'believed to have started from construction on .the apartment house and spread to the church. Five pump and two ladder companies were sent .to the densely populated section. and firemen fought the blaze for uu hour and a half before bringing it under control. The Rev. J. F. Piilkerson. pastor of the church, said a. new pipe organ had recently been installed and. appeared to be a total loss. The Sunday School annex contain- ed a kitchen, dining room and trla.ssi ooius on the ground 1'loor unti a tny snout room .upstairs. The church was built in 1901.

The British commonwealth nations, including Australia, are believed anxious for an early peace treaty with Japan, although their ideas as to terms may vary widely from those of the United States, and it is anticipated that the coming Canberra conference, wluuc the ritish aUitud? will be decided formally, will reflect this .sentiment. As for reparations, the fceliiijr here now is that this tincstion U on the way to settlement within a few months, and various allied nation.-, are coming to accept MacArthur's views, as expressed in His nterview with allied correspondents in March, that, Japan can contribute very little more than she has already given..
