ARKANSAS, SATURDAY, ori'OHKU 22, IIOMEEBTTION SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS STUMP FOR ROOSE I). S. and J;ipiw in Pacific, Militarists Have Convinced Them War Is Certain! Sooner or Later. By NBA Service , America's friendship for China in I the latter's present difficulties wil Japan, evidenced in til? incident, lias done nothing lo im-: prove /relations between the great Pacific naval powers. With the Tjnlteu States ap?r:v- ing the Lytton commission 1 -; rue- cmmedation that Japan fisgorgo the frniw of her military c-jiiu.ii>:!. in Manchuria ant! the whole ins 1 -- tcr scheduled to come before the League of Nations assembly Nov. 14, the situation takes on add:d interest. Two development.-, stand out: .1 The Japanese people, contrail- | ed by militarists and gripped bv a | \car hysteria, are convinced that j sooner or Inter tlieir nation wilt be attackei from across the Pacific. 2. The U. 3. Navy's Atlantic Il?ei. sent to the Pacific for spring maneuvers about the time of the Shanghai trouble, U still in that ocean. Also there, of course, ar- the Pacific fleet and tr.e Asiatic squadron. Given Fleet Command Recently. Admiral Richard II. Leigh, commander-iii-chtef of the battle fleet, was given wider powers of a scope unique in peace time. He was accorded full command of the two vital naval districts in Hawaii and the Canal Zone with "supervision of all administrative co- tails affecting tlie fleet" uideu;nd- ent of the Navy Department at Washington. The main body of the fleet now rests-'at' anchor in the -harbsrS'-of '- San Diego and Sau Pedro, with ds- fenslvc units of cruisers, destroyers and submarines in Panama and Hawaii. Tliis authority—theoretically, at least—would permit Admiral Leigh to order fee navy's big cread- naughts to Hawaii or Panama on a moment's notice. Failure of the United States, lo' withdraw its Atlantic fleet has provoked the Japanese almost as much as this government's supnori of the Lytton report. Washington has let it be known that it will not recognize the "Independent rennb- lic" of Manchukuo or any other gains that Japan wins by farce of arms. Gripped by an economic depression worse than that in America, the Japanese people have turned blindly to tec militarists who prom- is" to lead the nation out of it; troubles. For a long time thcs? leaders have fed the people with rumored thrats of an attack from across the Pacific. Three Views Japanese distrust of America is shown in recent public utterances. Addressing the Dtet, Kaku Mori, one of the leaders of tha powerful Sciyukai party, declared: "I: 1? impossible to expect Impvovr-m-'iv in our relations with the United Slates; they are likely ta became worse." General Nobuycshi Muto, commanding Japanese officer in Manchuria, declared: "Should anvbo-'v attempt to obstruct solution of the Manchurian question, we should b:- obliged to combat such interference relentlessly, no matter wro thev may be." Lieut.-Gen. Sadao Araki. minister of war and real leader of th" 1 government, declared: "The United States loudly profess to champion righteousness and human'.f> but what can you think \vh°n yoi review its policy in Cuba. Parmrn Nicaragua and other Latin-American nations? . . . We must shak: our fists in t£eir fnces."
