In defiance of warnings fiom both Great Britain and France, Japanese soldiers and sailors landed on the island at dawn, met little resistance f'-om Chinese troops, and -were reported to have occupied Hoihow, port and chief city of the island. Hainan is only 700 miles from the Philippines and in borne quarters the seizure was regarded as having the additional effect o£ counteracting United States proposals for fortifying Guam A naval spokesman said the seizure had two objectives: (1) Stiengthen- ing the blockade against Chinese munitions; (2) speeding the end of China's resistance so that Japanese relalicns with other nations can be improved. No mention was made of plans for fort.fymg the island, whch neutral diplomats agreed would be a job of years, but the seizure alone was one of the most important international developments since the undeclared Sino-Japanese war began Threatened -- Advertisement. igi feb-8-10.

Flash is not the mark of sound, solid, reliable merchandise. Every casket and accessory in the Milton V. Slunk display room is the product of a recognized maker.
