Mor- jrty president of the Phoenix ftSber of Commerce " 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 broken, the hordes from China would make short shirft of Japanese commercial as well as : military power in the Far East. i Will Japan risk a naval war? iFew 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•Aviation In The Valley at the esls at S j ngaporei then the folks crnis! banquet of the Glendale, in Nippon are in for the biggest aamber of Commerce last night surp rise of history. i the Civic Center building. Mr. Morairty told of the start d the campaign to obtain airfields ar army sen-ice here and compli- sented-various men of the valley id the local aviation committee ir their work in helping obtain jch sites. For their efforts, he sated, "we now have a great deal a look forward for in aviation in ie future." He brought out that three air raining fields soon will be located n the valley. These will include: (1) Elementary civilian training Seld, which is under construction orth of the Arizona Canal on iteral 18 and will be completed y March 22. Five hundred stunts will be stationed there for a .9-week training course, and it will e enlarged to accommodate 1,000 tudents and 600 training pilots. Vo hangars are being built and jans call for the construction of cmore. (2) Basic training school. No ifinite site has been selected for 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 by a combined Brjtish and •- - naval force ._ _ if pie 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 vir- ern waters, will constitute a force ample to prevent the outbreak of war. The attitude of some navalists here, on the other hand, is that this year would be an opportune time to have a showdown for all time in the Pacific. It is regrettable, that such a spirit is developing, but it is worth recording because it should be noted in Tokyo that the game of bluff which finally forced Britain into war in Europe may force America into war in the Pacific. Reversal 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 latter 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« citation 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 re-j [ations 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! that's because the resolution and determination of the American I City Progress Is Described MESA, Feb. 19—The progress of the City of Mesa from the time of its incorporation in 1883 to the present was pointed out during the program presented today at a meeting of the Notary Club. Zebu- Ion Pearce, program chairman, introduced the speakers, J. Edwin Miller, city manager; E. B. Tucker, city engineer, and George N. Goodman, mayor. July 5, 1883, Mesa, was incorporated as a village; March 29, 1897, as a town, and August 20, 1920, it became a city. The census tabulation in 1900 was 740, and in 1940, 7,224. The speakers summarized the many improvements in the city during the past few years including public utilities and recreational activities expansion, street and cemetery improvements, and improvements in hospitalization. A motion picture illustrating many of these improvements was shown. Next week the meeting will be held at the exposition hall of the Arizona State Citrus Show, with Mesa club members being hosts to all Rotarians of the valley. Luncheon will be served at the hall, with inspection of the show to follow.
