TWELVE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 5 1936 RUSSIA READY TO FIGHT JAPANESE Stalin Says Nation Plans to Keep Outer Mongolia Independent. NEW YORK, (#)--Russia under Joseph Stalin is ready to war with Japan if necessary to preserve outer '. . Mongolia's inde- 1 pendence, the soviet dictator said in an interview given Roy W. Howard, chairman of the board of Scripps-Howard newspapers, and published under a world copyright by the New York World-Telegram. "If Japan ventures to attack t h e Mongolian peoples' republic and seeks to destroy its inde- p e n d e n c e , we have have to be able to help that Jo«ef Stalin republic," Howard quoted Stalin as saying in reply to a direct question. The interview was held in Stalin's office in the Kremlin, in Moscow, and lasted f,or three hours, in which the soft spoken soviet leader discussed the far east situation, particularly the war threat, the possibility of war in central Europe and soviet-American relations. Would Drive Wedge. "Neutral military observers believe Japan is seeking to drive a wedge into outer Mongolia by way of China - proper in the event of war," Howard commented. "With possession of Ulan Bator the capital of outer Mongolia, the Japanese air forces would be in an advantageous position to threaten the trans-Siberian line at one of its most vulnerable points." "Would a Japanese attempt to seize Ulan Bator make positive ac- Give Your Hair Life, Luster and Color Use Lovalon -see the sparkling highlights and radiant beamy it gives your hair.

"Have recent events developed any new Japanese activities in this region which have been construed by the Soviets as of an aggressive nature?" Howard continued. "The Japanese seem to be continuing- to concentrate their troops on the frontier of the Mongolian peoples' republic," he quoted Stalin as answering, "but so far there have been no new attempts to create border incidents." Stalin, recalling that red troops supported tie Mongolians against Japanese-assisted white Russians as an aftermath of the Russian revolution, asserted, Howard wrote, that: 'We would help that republic as we did in 1921." Germany Discussed. In swift transition from Par East :o middle Europe, Howard and Stalin discussed the possibilities of German, aggression against Russia. "The soviet union appears to believe that Germany and Poland have aggressive designs against the soviet union and are planning military co-operation," remarked Howard in constructing the next question. "Poland, however, has protested her unwillingness to permit any foreign troops to use her territory as a base for operation against a third nation. How does the soviet union envisage such aggession by . Germany?

Object of Aggression. "History shows," %vas Stalin's re- )ly, "that when a state is intent on war against another state, even one not adjacent, the aggressor seeks an ntermediate state whose frontiers touch those of the object of her aggression. "Usually it is successful in finding such a frontier. "This is accomplished sometimes by force, as in 1914 in Belgium, or by other means, as in 1918, when .he Germans 'borrowed 1 the Latvian frontier in a drive against Leningrad. "I do not know what specific 'rentiers would be best adapted to .he German purposes, but I think :hey would find a people prepared :o lend them a frontier." Wars Just Start. It is "impossible to say" when he next war will come, Stalin as- lerted, adding: "Nowadays wars are not declared. They simply start." j He asserted Japan and Germany were the focal points of war danger. "Where are the war clouds more menacing, in the east or in the west?" Howard inquired. 'It is difficult to say," was the answer. "They both exist and both, are smouldering. Conflict Only Episode. 'Compared to either of these, the Italian-Ethiopian conflict-is an episode. 'For the moment, perhaps, the situation in the far east is more menacing but the center of danger may shift to Europe, x x x It Is symptomatic that even when Hen- Hitler speaks peace he cannot dispense with threats." Stalin, genial, without dramatics, displaying- little of the power that makes him supreme in a land of 173,000,000 people, declared in simple, straightforward language that capitalism furnished the "chief war menace today." $15,000 Suit on Note Is Filed at Hampton HAMPTON--A suit for $15,000 was filed here by D. W. Bates, su- perintendent of banking, against B. D. Hunt, T. E. Davenport, K. A. Waddington, F. E. Davenport, executor of the estate of R. E. Shockey, and R. A. Hunt, The suit is for payment of a note guaranteed by the defendants as directors of the closed Geneva Savings bank. Half the states have statutes levying some form of sales tax.--United States News. $39,942 in Salary Cut Refunds to Employes Refused by Comptroller DES MOINES, Iff)--The state comptroller's office refused Thursday to pay ?39,942 in "salary slash" act refunds to 21 employes of the state penitentiary at Fort Madison. The comptroller, however, issued 'certificates of indebtedness" for the amount, explaining the em- ployes may present the certificates to the claims committee of the next legislature. A special legislative act would be necessary for payment, it was stated. The employes claimed the amount due on difference between salaries received under the reduction act and tie amount previously paid from May 1, 1933 to June 30, 1935. The salary slash act was declared unconstitutional by the state supreme court in December, 1934. Payment of the refunds could not legally be made because the same legislature which passed the reduction act also appropriated funds to support the institutions and the comptroller cannot allow more than apropriations, it was explained. The claim by penitentiary inmates is the only one made jointly by institution employes thus far, the comptroller's office said. Mrs. Imogene Emory of Cedar Rapids New Iowa D.A'.R.
