When Japan denounced the treaty recently, a good many people got mi uneasy feeling that pet-haps this oncc- averlcd war would again become an almost certain tiring. This fear was only natural. Tlie treaty was drawn up to end a naval race which, in the years immediately after the armistice, had become both expensive and dangerous—especially dangerous, in view of tlic object lesson which 10M had provided as to the \ probable fruits .of unrestrained competition in naval armaments. If the treaty dies, the \v;iy is open for a new race lo begin. 'Nevertheless, Die outlook today is by no means as perilous as oho might suppose. For the one .saving factor in the situation is, a simple' bit of geography^..-.The (three great naval . powers—England, Japan and tlio United States—are separated from one another by thousands of miles of salt water. * * * • This, fortunately, means that any one of these nations can build a fleet which will provide complete national security for itself without menacing , the national security-ot either of the other..two. c ' '> That was not the case in the famous naval race between England and Germany, Those two conn trie's were close together. If Germany were lo have a licet strong enough lo keep German sea lanes lo the outer seas open, it had to be a fleet strong enough to dis- Ihite with England control of waters vital to England's safely. The same thing was true the other way around; an English fleet strong enough to make England secure was automatically a fleet strong enough to cut Germany oil' from'traffic with the vest of the world. -' • •• * * * Neither nation, therefore, could al- tain naval security without ;it the same time raising a direct menace to the security of the other. Feverish ^ naval building followed by war was the only iggica! result. The present situation is vastly Oif- i'ci'enl. .The. United Slates' fleet may be slroiig chough 'to keep our own sea lanes open and protect our coasts, and still he loo weak to invade English or Japanese Waters foe such lai'KO- scale mnneuvci's as would be necessary lo foi'ce either country to Us Idieos; and the same thing is true of both the English and Ilio Japanese fleets. • Tliis fact should not be overlooked. It makes all the difference in the world between the situation today and that which obtained just before l!)M. England and 'Germany could 'not build for security without directly threatening each other; England, America and Japan can do so. —Bruce Cation.
