Kiki To jo became premier -designate of Japan today, picked to take up the reins of government dropped by Prince Fumimaro Konoyp; yesterday before a growing crisis In the empire's relations with Soviet Russia and the United States. A soldier and the son of a «>ld!er, the 56-year-old general was war minister in the Konoye cabinet. He has been an open admirer of German military methods since service in Berlin as an attache in 1919 and declared as long afo as 1937 that -Japan must be prepared to flRht China and Russia simultaneously." Emperor Hlrohlto entrusts! General Tojo with the task of forming a new government upon the recommendation of Japan's elder statesmen to Marquis Kolchl Kldo. lord keeper of the privy seal. They made their decision at a 2 3-4 hour conference, Farther Appotntawnta Delayed Selection of other members of the cabinet to serve under Tojo was expected to be delayed until after the emperor attends ceremonies at the Yasukunl shrine Saturday in honor of the empire's war dead. Dome! said the premier-designate had been assured of support by General Gen Buglyamt. chief of staff of the imperial army, and General - otoao Yamada, commander-ln-chief of the home forces. Generals and admirals probably will predominate in its makeup and Sty monopolise the portfolios, Japanese said. Amid these developments—coming less than two months after Prince Konoye first sought through secret negotiations in Washington to ease •trained relations between the United States and Japan—it was reported that the Commander-in-chief of empire legions in China had arrived in southern Japan on his way to Tokyo for a conference.

Ships In the rest of the Pacific would not be affected, it was indicated. The navy, reported by Manila sources to have ordered the ships to proceed to the nearest American or British port, took this official position: -In. view of the present situation in the Pacific, the navy department has no comment to make." Reliable informants, however, indicated strongly that the order had been issued. v . The number of American ships In Japanese and Chinese waters was said to be "small," with a "considerable" number of American ships operating In the rest of the Pacific. The maritime commission, like the navy, declined to discuss ship movements In the Pacific or to estimate the number of ships operating in those waters. "Any orders that might have gone out have been a matter for the navy," a commission spokesman said. "Our only jurisdiction is over commercial movements." Principal American steamship lines operating in the Pacific are the American President, American Mail, Amffriom Plrmrfr, TTthmtim, and Of M Orders Cewotion ?

RECALLED TO HONOLULU BAN FRANCISCO — (AP)—Marine circles reported today that all American ships headed for Oriental waters were ordered by the navy to return to Honolulu, most strongly fortified port in the world. There was no indication of how many ships were affected. Marine men said ships on their way to Philippine waters were the ones primarily affected. No ships have gone to Japan in recent months and few have gone to Chine. Ships on the Australian run, which ply south and east of Oriental waters, were understood to be free from the order. For some time, all ships leaving for Australia have departed without any announcement of the date of sailing and have been listed In shipping reports only as "a vessel." Up to today there was. no secrecy about sailings to Manila. But generally commercial shipping to Philippine watero has fallen greatly, while army and navy sailings, have increased. Naval authorities Mid all American ships in Oriental waters had been ordered to proceed to the nearest American or British port. The American President lines, principal operator in the Orient, Insisted it had received no such order. The Malaon line, whose ships operate to Hawaiian and Australian waters, apparently was not affected The Present Demand Is Great— —for used household items.

Phone 42 Washington Views Japanese Shakeup With Apprehension Some Interpret Move As Virtually Barring Peaceful Settlement WASHINGTON— <AP»—With war talk spreading !n the Orient, Capitol hiil Rpnrrnlly took an increasingly ftravp view todsy of the Jap- rnbinrt overturn, and Icars were pxprc.v^d that a serious new threat was in the making for American and Britl-ih interests In the Pacific. Senator Gillette fr>Iowa>. a member of the foreign relations committee, told newsmen that the governmental change in Tokyo "makes the chances of a peaceful settlement of our differences with Japan very meager indeed." To Gillette and several of his colleagues all indications were that Japanese militarists had gained the upper hand and new military adventures could be expected—most likely aa attack on Siberia. Although Shanghai's international circle-* were predicting that "events will move fast in the Par East," Washington found some assurance against an immediate crisis In the fact that President Roosevelt left the White House last night for a weekend at his Hyde Park, N. Y.. estate. The state department, however, was watching the turn of events closely and a direct telephone line from Hyd« Park to the White House was available if developments warranted consultation with the chief executive. President in Twe-Hewr Parley Mr. Roosevelt was believed to have explored the Japanese situation thoroughly with top military and foreign affairs advisers yesterday in a special conference that lasted almost two hours. The feeling that the Tokyo cabinet crises presaged trouble was not shared by Hugh G. Grant, who was recently recalled by the state department from his post as minister to Thailand, or by Senator Wheeler (D-Mont), a leading critic of administration In international affairs. Grant asserted in a statement today that the Japanese "are running their old bluffing game in order to keep us agitated, thereby turning our attention away tram Europe. That has been the strategy of the axis, of course, ever atace Japan joined up." Wheeler said he had been told by a veil advised abmrvii that Japana aim was to "bluff" the United and "scare us Into keeping tat navy in the Pacific." On the other hand.

Germans Continue Moscow Advance, Russians Concede Defenders Massed in Front of Capital for A Last-Ditch Stand (By The Associated Press) On the Russo-Oennan war front, the titanic battle for Moscow raged into its 18th day today with undl- minisbed fury. Soviet dispatches reported that stubbornly fighting-red army troops had broken two German spearheads thrust into the key sectors of Vyas- m*. 125 miles west of Moscow, and mites northwest of the Russian capital. While conceding that the danger as stOI extreme, the Russians neverthaleai declared that the German onslaught on the approaches of had been slowed as Soviet defense armies of Marshal Semeon Tanoshenko messed in front of the capital for a last-ditch stand.

Lord Gort reported shortages of equipment and failure of toordina* Uon among the allied armies. The Daily Express said the report "ought to be enough to stop the in- vastonlsts, shouting and bawling for immediate action before we make tanks to do it with. Brave men must never be sacrificed again by being sent to war without proper weapons." Gort revealed that the government made him "sole Judge" on the question of the surrender of the British expeditionary force in the event the Germans cut off the troops from the beach head at Dunkerque. Lord Gort related for the first time how Allied Generalissimo Maxim* Weygand called for a counterattack by the British even as they were being taken home from the beaches of Dunkerque. He also said that in another instance the British war office ordered an attack which had become impractical befare the order was Issued. He blamed that on faulty Information lecelfed from the French. The former commander said the French persisted in refusing to withdraw to cover of the Dunkerque evacuation until the final moment.

Berlin Remains Silent On Destroyer Incident BERLIN — (AP) — Authorized Germans said tonight they had only American reports of the torpedoing of the U. 8. destroyer Kearny and were unable to comment because there was no Indication that a German naval vessel was involved. They pointed out, besides, that German submarines are now in constant touch with their bases and usually return to their stations before making reports.

President Weighs Victory Program Wor Setup May Take Half of U. S. Income WASHINGTON — (AP) — President Roosevelt, it was learned authoritatively today, has ordered the army, navy and office of production management to draft and study a -victory program" involving expenditures of up to t50.000.000.000 annually for American defense and aid to Britain and other countries.

Secretary Knox advised him by phone of the attack on the Keamy. He appeared surprised that the press had teamed of the torpedoing so soon. But there was little evidence of alarm in his bearing over the fact that an American warship had been hit for the first time since the war in Europe began. Mr. Roosevelt said, in response to questions, that he had no information about casualties or possible retaliation by the Kearny. Kearny Designed To Take Pounding And Keep Afloat Better Construction Reflected in Vessel's Survival of Torpedo WASHINGTON — (AP) — The Kearny's survival of a torpedo attack without casualties or mortal damage was viewed by naval men todsy as evidence of the staunch, improved construction of the new craft and her sister ships. Completed only last year, the Keirny was designed to withstand much greater battle punishment as well as to hit harder and speed faster than earlier and smaller destroyers. Watertight compartment*, which can be closed quickly to localise damage, are more numerous. Like battleships, new type destroyers have double "skins" of steel, but 1% was considered unlikely the outer skin of any would suffice to explode a torpedo whue the in intact From ,tk* aavy* tew wuiounot- ment, Informed quarters «*nj£* .JJf otherleSt TO an inquiry wneutef me aame- instnictions. to hunt down the marauder, had been given as in the case of the destroyer Greer, .the chief executive merely replied that rgular navy orders applied. Unsuccessful torpedo attacks were made on the Greer last month in the same general vicinity as the Kearny attack today. Cautiously rebuff ing* all efforts of reporters to draw him out on the Kearny torpedoing by referring them back to the navy department, Mr. Roosevelt would not even go so far as to say whether he thought another act of piracy on the high dined to believe the ably struck the bow. a half-ton of TUT In the destroyert stern almost inevitably would have put the propaUinff mechanism of rornmisstnn. It was beuered. An explosion amidships ml«ht conceivably occur without eaustnf casualties or crippling damage, but the chances for such an deemed teat likely than if the blow occurred nearer the forward end of the veeael. Destroyers such as the Kearny are understood to have four fire Attack Occurs in Same Genera! Area as Greer Incident Over Month Ago WASHINGTON — (AP) — The United States destroyer Kearny w&a torpedoed in the North Atlantic today, the navy announced, but sur« vived the attack with no reported casualties and was able to proceed under her own power. The news brought a prompt demand from Senator Pepper (D-Fla) that the navy retaliate "with two sinkings for each assault" and a comment by Representative Cox (D- Ga) that if the Germans are guilty. "It is probably the incident for which we have been waiting." On patrol duty in an area where the navy has orders to "capture or destroy" axis-controlled submarines or surface raiders, the year-old destroyer was torpedoed at a point about 350 miles south and west of Iceland. Senator Nye (R-ND), critic of administration policies, said "when the navy operates under the shoot- Ing orders that the President has given, we ought not to be surprised when these things occur. I wouldn't let this mean war, so far as X am concerned." ' Senator Bridges (R-NH) called the torpedoing "an open act of defiance by Hitler." "This presents a wholly different problem than attacks made upon our merchant ships and further complicates the problem we face.* Bridges said. "When American naval vessels are attacked there should certainly be no hesitancy about the timing of our merchant ships.'' Destroyer Owe eff Newest Secretary of State Hull's comment was confined to the terse remark that what he has saiqVon previous occasions about German U-boat activities applied. On these occasions he has described their attacks as piratical. The commander of the Kearny is Lieutenant A, L. Denis, 42, who took chane of the 15,000,000 craft last year. The Kearny, completed only last year, Is one of the navy's newe* destroyers.
