The meeting* was set for 7 p. m., after Hitler and Vico-Chaiicellor Franz von Papon jointly visited President Paul vou Hindenburg.

The state executive last night issued the following statement: "Much Is appearing In the public press to the effect, that United StateB Senator Hiram Johnson will bo offered and accept a place In President-elect Tloopevelt's cabinet; that Governor Rolph will then resign and on becoming governor I will appoint Governor Rolph to flic senatorial vacancy. "The governor has never mentioned the subject to me and even If Senator Johnson should accept a cabinet position and resign, there Is no reason to believe Governor Rolph would aid In making me governor. "In order that my position may not be misunderstood, may I say I have not been approached to make such a deal; do not expect any such offer and positively I could not Join In any such plan even though the various chariges necessary should all happen." (United Press Leased SACRAMENTO, Feb. 1.—California will start registering her warrants, Instead of paying them some time In May or June, It was predicted today by Holland A. Vandegrift, state director, of finance. Previously It had been estimated by State Controller Rlley that by borrowing from special funds, the warrant registration might bo delayed until August or September. Vandegrtft painted a blacker picture and blamed the Legislature for the responsibility for new taxes because It refused to act on Governor Rotph's finance program. "In May or June, unless nomo unexpected fortunate event occurs," said Vandegrift, "the state will register Its warrants for the first time since 1893. "Unfortunately, this condition will adversely affect the credit of the state and we will find that vendors of merchandise will consider It necessary to Increase their hid prices to cover the cost of carrying the state's notes." Registration will affect only half of the state's business* Special funds of self*supporting agencies are adequate to meet obligations as they arise. The added burden of balancing the state's budget, the finance director said, "will be placed by the Legislature on the taxpayers of the state either through a sales tax, an Income tax or an ad valorem tax, because the Legislature failed to act favorably on the school amendment," PIONEER PACKER DIES LONG BEACH, Feb. 1.

Fob. 1.—California exported $35,187,062 worth of fruits to foreign countries during 1932, Wesley O. Ash. chief of the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce here, reported today. The 1D32 exports as measured by the customs bureau valuations fell about 24 per cent short of the 3931 fruit Fthtqments abroad, the 1,931 ag- grefrate-value being. $40,482^,831. Ash explained that prtoe- declines militated against 3932 export values.* Part of the price decline was due to increased demand abroad for lower grades of fruit than had been In demand In* previous years, due to lowered purchasing 1 power In countries where currency was depreciated. Recall proceedings against Govtr- nor James Rolph, Jr., art to be started at once, according to George H.

(United Press Leased Wire) TOKIO, Feb. 1.—Japan's withdrawal from the League of Nations appeared ineyltable today after a conference between Foreign Minister Yasuya Uchlda and Prince Klmmochl Salonjl, adviser to the emperor and last of Japan's elder statesmen. Toklo v newspapers said that' the prince agreed with tile foreign minister that Japan must withdraw If the league approves a report condemning Japanese activities In Manchuria. A government spokesman gave his personal -opinion that withdrawal was Inevitable, Victory for Justice Seen Minister of War Arakl, one of the most powerful men in Japanese poll- tics, wild Japan's withdrawal would constitute a victory for Justice. "There Is nothing the matter with Japan,' 1 Arakl said. "It Is the others who are nil wrong." The war minister said ho was not worried about the mandated Islands In the'Pacific placed under Japanese jurisdiction by the league. Ho declared that the mandates would remain under Japanese control. Arakl said Japan could promote peace outside the league, just as the United States and Russia have done, and that Japan might return to the league when the "true spirit" of the organization was revived. New Instructions New Instructions were sent to Tu- nolce Matsuoka, Japanese chief delegate at Geneva. It was understood that he was instructed to make final demands that the league's proposed solution of the Manchurlan crisis refrain from repudiating the existence of the state of Manchukuo established in Manchuria by the Japanese. It was also understood that Japan would accept the creation of a conciliation commission, provided the powers of the commission be limited to aiding direct negotiations between China and Japan with due consideration of conditions existing In Manchuria. If the league accepts these Japanese suggestions, Japan Is prepared to make minor concessions. But If the suggestions are rejected, Japan will ignore attempts to apply paragraph four of article XV of the covenant to the dispute, and withdrawal from the league will depend upon the nature of the league Assembly's report.
