Washington, Feb. 24.--A.merica stood firmly today behind the open door policy In China and disputed Japan's claim that the nine power treaty should be revised because China was not able to maintain order. In an open letter to Chairman Borah, of the senate foreign relations committee, Secretary Stlmson said observance of treaties would have avoided the, present Slnb-Japanese situation, and' that no evidence had come to this government that compliance with them would have Interfered with the protection of all legitimate foreign rights in China. The secretary of state, In the several thousand word communication, pronounced America's policy filled with detailed background, in the far east difficulties as one squarely behind the open door policy and the nine power treaty, under which that policy was subscribed to by the principal powers. The letter was in response to a request by Borah for an opinion whether conditions in China, have Indicated the Inapplicability or ineffectiveness of the nine power treaty, and whether it was in need ot modification. The nine power treaty, Stlmson wrote, was entered Into by Japan and the other signatories at a time when China was engaged in an attempt to develop free Institutions and the powers, realized. China would' require many years to attain that end. Students Break Up Washington Show in S.

Tokyo, Feb. '24.--For the second time this month official secrecy has closed over Important military developments in Japan, and an active censorship has kept out of the newspapers Information concerning preparations for increasing the expeditionary force to Shanghai. This was by order of the cabinet, the ministry apparently believing that control of the news disguise the serious view which the government takes of the situation in Shanghai. A few early editions of yesterday's evening newspapers managed to print a brief report of the cabinet's decision to send more men to China, but that was the only Information most of the people-have had. Official supervision of dispatches by foreign correspondents has taken some odd forms. For example, a keen- eyed supervisor deleted part of an interview' given by the Associated Press by Sado Arakl, the minister of war and one of'tbo strongest and most responsible members of the cabinet. Among the developments which the local papers were permitted to publish was a meeting of the supremo war council to which the high military officials reported on the Shanghai campaign. Imminent changes In the scope of the military activities there have revived discussion of candidates for commander-in-chlef of the reinforced army, and General Yoshlnort Shirak- awa, former, minister of war, is frequently mentioned., The great majority of the'Japanese people continue to support the government's military decisions and to approve the operations In Manchuria and at Shanghai, for there Is a growing realization of the risks Involved in the Chinese campaign and it has produced, a determination to see things through. Japanese patriotism 1« a strong force, but nevertheless the people are watching anxiously the reaction abroad, especially as it concerns a possible economic blockade by foreign powers. The reaction of the majority seems to be that .the western powers, unable to understand all that led up to the present crisis, have -judged 'japan harshly and "unjustly. (Auoctateft FriMl . Shanghai, Feb. 24.--(Wedne«d»y)- Offlclal reports today confirmed that an American, Robert Short, 27, was ·hot down by Japanete planes over Sooochow yesterday. ant. Jeers and catcalls became so violent during the affair, that Principal John J. Corey said he was forced to halt the proceedings and send the students back to their rooms. Local Bridge Project Put in Question Desirability of Allowing: "Three Per Cent" Gas Money To Be Expended Outside City Limits Argued by City Question of whether the city of Greeley should allow its legal share of the "three per cent" of the 'state gasoline tax 'to be expended, outside of the city limits was raised Tuesday. W. A. Insinger who stated that he acted "only as a messenger boy for the city council" brought the matter before the directors of the Groeley chamber of commerce at the weekly luncheon of the directors Tuesday noon at the Sterling cafeteria. No action was takon at the meeting except that the subject was referred to Hugh F. Wheeler, chairman of the streets and highway committee of the chamber. ·As already repeatedly announced the state highway budget provides for spending $12,564 from the three per cent fund on the Poudre river bridge and approaches on North Eleventh avenue. This bridge site was originally within the city limits but was excluded with abutting property from the city on petition of property owners by order of the county court July 29, 1929. The state highway gasoline tax money is divided as follows: 70 per cent to'the state highway fund, 27 per cent to county treasuries to be distributed in ratio to the mileage of state highways In each county and three per cent to be expended within city limits on links in federal aid highways under the supervision of the state highway commission.

Prow) Denver, Feb. 24.--Colorado's celebration in connection with the Washington bicentennial struck a snag today when the attorney general declared the appropriation by the last legislature for the observance of the 200th anniversary of Washington's birth was illegal. The legislature appropriated $4,000 for the Washington bicentennial and a state exhibit at the world's fair in Chicago. It was specified in the general appropriation bill that this money was to be taken from the $12,500 contingent fund voted the governor for official and semiofficial purposes. Paul P.rosser, chairman of the Colorado Washington bicentennial celebration, appeared before the auditing board today and appealed for funds Ho said individual members of the committee had spent personal funds for various phases of the work of the committee. George Crowder, deputy attorney general, said the obligation wu a moral one rather than a legal one and that he believed the attorney general's office could work out a solution In conjunction with the governor. Crowder held the general appropriation bill should contain items for the actual operation of tho state government only. Engberg la Improving Condition of E. Engberg of ients back to their rooms.

Aldermen in Praise of Greeley Police City Aldermen gave high praiae to the work of tho 'Greeloy police and federal agents in capturing the xtlll near Brlggsdale last week and arresting several suspects in the. .case, at the council meeting Tuesday night. C. F. Wlls . w.ater collector, was-al»o overtime to from the War Starts Much Nearer to Weld than China Coast How much is the seat of county government worth to Greeley? Interesting facts or rather speculations on the value of a county seat to a city are being published at Longmont. Longmont people propose to issue $260,000 bpnds for a modern court house to be orectod at Longmont and to be donated to the county provided that the county seat will bo moved from Boulder to Longmout. Advocates of the plan state that the county seat would be worth 20 times the amount o£ the bond issue to Longmont in payroll and Increased business. Unique proposal of Longmont has poulder admittedly worried. One edition of the Boulder Camera contains a two column front page news story denouncing the Longmont proposition and claiming that- Longmont can't possibly get the' votes to make the change, also another news story on the law of Colorado county soat location and an. editorial headed "Longmont can't divert its electric light plant fund to build a court house for Boulder, Greeloy or Loveland" another, editorial explaining that voting on a county seat location would not; be limited to taxpayers. (Boul- der.lias a very large non tax-paying 'Population),, also another editorial ridiculing Longmont's claim that fhe county .seat is worth $6,000,000 to the city possessing: It. , The talk -of moving the county seat ifrom - Boulder to Longmont started as a joke when the Boulder court house burned. It. ceased to be a joke when Ray'Lanyon, editor Qf the Longmont Times, and incidentally mayor of Longmont, backed by other citizens began an energetic investigation to see what Longmont could do. Farmers and people living in the numerous-small" towns of Boulder county "fell hard" for the Idea of getting a quarter of a million court house for nothing as preferred by Longrnpnt. Boulder county .is only one third as valuable as Wold county and is only one sixth as large and hag ·only one half the population of Weld. Hence if the county seat of Boulder county Is worth anywhere near $5,000,000 to Longmont the county seat of- Weld county ought to be worth $15,00,0,000 to $20;000,000 to Greeloy, statistics would indicate. As a veteran county official here remarked Tuesday, It's lucky for Greeley that she grabbed the county seat from Evans while court houses were still cheap, and before their Immense value was thoroly comprehended. in Nebraska, two in Wyoming, and one In Montana. There are several independent factories In this district, and, it was said, some of these, because- of the prevailing low price of beet sugar and the difficulty of obtaining funds to meet bank loans might be forced to close. It was pointed out the Great Western conipany was In a somewhat stronger financial position than the smaller refiners and should be able to continue- operation of its various plants until signs of improvement begin to show in the Industry. At the same time, it was thought, if refined beet sugar continue? at its present price of 3.95 cents a pound, or declines further, there will have to be a reduction in the price of beets. The jrower, for the past season, received [5.50 a ton for his crop. The beet crop for 1931 was 59,999 tons under the peak crop for the previous season which totaled 1,075,000 toils. Hope was still being held out for ;he success of the Chadbourno plan for restriction ot the world's sugar output, outside of the United States, but some dealers were pessimistic as. to the outcome and expressed the fear lower prices and increased production would io seen. Students Volunteer Blood for Eatonite Needing Infusion Search for blood was being conducted 1 at Teachers college Wednesday OB scores, of students volunteered to give a quantity for use at the Greeley hospital where Mrs. Ella Dlehl of Eaton is in need of a transfusion. Tho the call for volunteers was made Tuesday morning at Teachers college and many students had by night undergone tests to. determine the suitability of their blood, none had been found that would match .that of Mrs. Dlehl which is in group one of blood . classification, the class into which fewest people fall: Attending physician _sald that his patient is suffering fro'm an en'emlc condition and that a blood transfusion, tho not an immediate requirementf should be accomplished within a few days. . . Denver, Feb. 24.--According to the Denver'Post that-beat field labor may be asked to take a chance and tend 1932 Colorado- best crop on a percentage basis, Instead of being guaranteed a specific wage. Northern Colorado farmers are urging .that baet labor be given 25 percent of. the gross" returns an acre instead .of a fixed price an acre. La'si year the labor contract called 1 for'a payment of |19 an acre. The ef- [£ct of putting labor .on .a percentage basis would be to' reduce the labor on p[bor or efficiently cultivated beet land. The result of this will be that farmers making a small yield an acre will be able to get field labor or will have to do tho work themselves or go out of the beet producing business. It labor is paid on a percentage basis it is believed the beet acreage will bo materially reduced. There is a limit to the acreage one farmer can handle alono and' if he produces only 7 to 10 tons an acre at $5.50 a ton which was the price paid for .beets last year, 25 percent ot his gross return would not be a living wage. Agitation among farmers to pay beet field labor on a percentage basis has been increased by the fear that the sugar companies in Colorado may not guarantee growers a minimum price tor beets this year. This far, tho Great Western Sugar company, which is^ the largest concern of its kind in tile country has taken no steps toward contracting the beet crop this year. Reports have been current the company might not operate at all and If it does operate, it may reduce the minimum beet price to ?4 or $4.50 a ton or may nmko no guarantee whafr soever. Campbell Breaks World Speed Mark (Associated Prcu) Daytona Beach, Fla., Feb. 24.--Sir Malcolm Campbell, famous British race car driver, today hung up a new world's automobile speed record on tho ocean speedway here. His speed was 253.968 miles an hour. The veteran 47-year old racer drove his 12-cyllnder bluebird twice over the course for an average two-way speed of 253.968 miles an hour over the official mile. This exceeded by 8.235 miles an hour the record ot 245.733 he established here last year. 3 Youthi on Probation' The three Greeley youtlm wb« "·-·"- fes'sed to burglarizing the Greeley Tent and Awlilng company store recently were Tuesday put on probation for two years after being sentenced to serve a term at tho state' Industrial school at Golden.
