The! that the Kame of bluff which fin»T-_, ,,__ , ., . ' _!aiiv forced Britain into war in The __. might be aided by Nazi conception of the outcome of the war was swallowed hook, line and sinker. Today Japan stands on the brink of the precipice. She cannot get aid from Germany on the seas and her islands can survive only if her navy survives. Once Japanese sea power is broken, the hordes from China would make short shirft of Japanese commercial as well as military power in the Far East. Will Japan risk a naval war? Few people in Washington believe the Japanese would be so unwise, but if Tokyo believes there is no risk in moving into the Dutch East Indies or in invading British inter" the folks le biggest i the Civic Center building. Mr. Morairty told of the start t the campaign to obtain airfields i army service here and compli- ffinted various men of the valley id the local aviation committee r their work in helping obtain ach sites. For their efforts, he jted, "we now have a great deal look forward for in aviation in Se future." He brought out that three air amfflg fields soon will be located the valley. These will include: (1) Elementary civilian training dd, which is under construction orth of the Arizona Canal on leral 18 and will be completed r March 22. Five hundred stunts wUl be stationed there for a •week training course, and it will | enlarged to accommodate 1,000 idents and 600 training pilots. Risk Is Simple The risk for the Japanese is a simple one to outline. The United! States is not going to stand by and see Japan take possession of the Dutch East Indies and dominate the future of the Philippines. The Japanese are likely to find themselves blockaded a combined m hangars are tfeing built and ins call for the construction of i more. 12) Basic training school, [finite site has been selected for le construction of this school, but probably will be located on the uthside, because it must be 10 Jes from any airfield, according the speaker. 13) Advanced training school. sis field will be located on 2U rtions of land west of Glendale the intersection of Litchfield irk road and Glendale avenue. These three fields will be con- •ucted so they can expand 100 i cent in case of an emergency, lording to Mr. Morairty. Col. Dale Bumstead of Phoenix, a brief talk said men are surging the site for the location of e advanced air training school British and 'American naval force if the status quo in the Far East is impaired. It will be recalled that the secretary of state of the United States gave ample warning a few months ago that the status quo in the Far East must not be disturbed. That warning still stands and this is one case where a diplomatic representation will be backed up by naval action, if necessary, the moment the initiative is taken to violate what America feels is a clear obligation. It will be recalled also that the United States entered into an agreement with Japan which virtually guaranteed the status quo in the Far East when the nine- power pact was signed. The American navy has had to take up its position in the Pacific for several years now because of the tendency of the Japanese military party in «st of here and it Kiation by June 7. will be in Harold W.

Keversal Is Sensible Japanese interests are so closely allied commercially with America that detached observers have never been able to understand why Tokyo made an alliance with the Nazis. With American sea power rising and with British sea power unlikely to be beaten now that the lend and lease bill is about to be passed by the American congress, the time for a reversal of policy in Japan would seem to have arrived. There is much more basis today for an Anglo-American-Japanese entente than for a Nazi-Italian-Japanese alliance^ For in the latler neither of the first two allies can help the third, whereas both the United States and Great Britain can furnish the commercial and financial sinews for the resus- cilalion of the Japanese empire once its war of exhaustion with China has come to an end. The time for plain speaking on the part of friends of Japan in America is at hand. If the Japanese will withdraw her fleets from the Dutch areas and make her commercial needs known, she can be assured of a continuous flow of raw materials vital to her welfare. Her diplomacy can prevent a war. But if it be assumed that nothing will be done by America no matter how far matters are pushed in the Far East, then little can be achieved to preserve peaceful relations between the two countries, and war would then become inevitable. The danger of war at the moment is greater than the public in either country suspects, but thal's because the resolution and determination of the American government is being mistakenly discounted in some quarters abroad, especially among the Nazis, who would like to embroil Japan and the United States because the Nazi regime would not be called on to make any sacrifices.
