Feb. 20—(AP)— Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia of NwJTork proposed today, particularly to mayors of East and SS«t wast cities, that they take up the immediate problem of preparing for the possibility of bomb- fag attacks. Declaring that he was a realist, not an alarmist, the peppery mayor laid: 1 "I will grant that there are 87 n«r cent probabilities that m may not be attacked, but "aditer the Bnited States government nor any mayor can take that three per cent dunce." ' Spealdng at a midwestern re- nonal meeting of the U. S. Conference of Mayors, of which he Is president, LaGuardia asserted if there is an invasion, the civilian populations will be in the front Bje trenches, subject first to incendiary bomb attacks. From a study made of fire fighting-under war conditions, he said, each city must have available about $43,000 of supplementary portable pumping engines and other equipment for each present fire company. • Kf Expenditure Needed In New York City, that would require an- expenditure of about $16,000,000, in Boston $2,000,000, In Baltimore $2,500,000, Pittsburgh U1500.000, and Philadelphia $3,- Arizona Republic, Phoenix, Friday Morning, February 21, 1941' Pacific Crisis Spurs U.

Getting; supplies to Guam would be a bijj problem in case of war. Development of American Samoa, in the South Pacific, as an aviation "lookout station," at cost of $8,100,000, has been recommended by the house naval affairs committee after secret conference with Ai!m.

Youth To Face Robbery Trial The juvenile court yesterday ordered Wallace Leon Sullivan, 17 years old, Tulsa, Okla., prosecuted on a charge of kidnaping for robbery in connection with the holdup-abduction of Phillip J. Downs, Phoenix, January 22. Superior Judge Dudley W. Windes, hearing juvenile matters, entered the order after an explanation by J. Arthur Miller, juvenile officer. Then Sullivan, brought here from Tulsa recently by a deputy sheriff, was ordered to face preliminary hearing at 1:30 p. m. Monday in West Phoenix Precinct Justice Court. He was jailed in lieu of $1,000 bond. Meanwhile, Grattus L. Cloud, 24, Salt Lake City, alleged accomplice of the boy, pleaded not guilty and Superior Judge Howard C. Speakman set his trial for March 25. A court-appointed attorney will represent him. The pair is accused of abducting Downs, district manager of Precision Bearings, Inc., at pistol-point in front of the post office here, driving him to the north end of 16th street, leaving him bound and gagged and fleeing with $5, his clothing and car. Deputies of Lon Jordan, sheriff, [raced Cloud to Salt Lake City and Sullivan to Tulsa. ,. .The mayor, suggested that the federal government place an immediate, order for this equipment. "Weren't know whether the dtiei ; have the money to buy H, or not, but that isn't what k important now," he warned. "We can't wait until some' thing actually happens to get this equipment into production." LaGnardia called on the mayors to develop streamlined and coordinated defense organizations in direct.; contact with military officials ."in order to know exactly Afhat they are doing and exactly where the antiaircraft batteries would be located and exactly how we have to care for the injured and mctly where everyone must be mobilized and cared for." As another phase of their duties, LaGnardia said the mayors should be planning how "to avoid and abrupt and sudden and violent dislocation of employment and industry" after the national defense «nwgency had passed. _«opoies Building Program To prevent a great postwar depression, he proposed that the conference urge the federal govern- nent to earmark $100,000,000 for toe preparation of specifications W* public works program cost- in? 52,000,000,000.

S. Accord WASHINGTON, Feb. 20—(AP)— Stressing that Japan was seeking "economic expansion" by peaceful means but refusing to rule out a resort to force, Adm. Kichisaburo Nomura, new Japanese ambassador, said yesterday there would be no American-Japanese war unless the United States took the "initiative." The admiral told his first press conference in Washington that the same applies to <Great Britan. Japan "will expand southward peacefully and economically" to obtain necessary supplies nearer home," he.said. "I cannot say with absolute definiteness that Japan will not resort to force, hut she is doing her utmost to avoid this." He mentioned as areas for "economic expansion" French Indo- China and Thailand, where Japanese influence already is strong, and the rich Netherlands East Indies, with which negotiations for increased oil and other supplies are in progress. "I believe there cannot be any cause that should bring our two countries (the United States and Japan) into war," the ambassador said. Stresses Axis Fact Japan has treaty obligations to the axis powers—Germany and Italy—and will "observe them faithfully," Nomura asserted. But he went on to say that "I believe America will not go into tht war openly and declare war against Germany, so that situation (the treaty obligations) will not arise." Implying that Japan felt obligated "to enter the conflict only ' in the event of a formal American declaration of war against Germany, he said it was largely a "question of interpretation of the treaty." "When Japan entered the agreement (last September)," the ambassador continued, "it was her intention to preserve the peace in the Pacific. She did not envisage war with the United States. She wanted to avoid it." Japan likewise, he said, wanted to stay out of the European war and "prevent its extension to the Pacific." He acknowledged that the "atmosphere" in the United States toward Japan was more than he had believed before he left Japan a few weeks ago. About the same time he was talking at the embassy, the house was passing legislation authorizing a naval expansion program in the Pacific, including improvement of defenses at the far western islands of Guam and Samoa. 'We don't like to see naval and air bases established near us, especially by a great power like the United States," the ambassador said of these projects, "but we recognize that Guam and Samoa are American territories and we have no right to interfere." He indicated that he did not consider there' was' a serious threat to Japan from the Philippine Islands, which also came in for congressional action today to strengthen defenses. The house naval affairs committee approved a so-called "junior lease-lend bill," authorizing the navy to sell "equipment and supplies" to the Philippine government and to "repair or assist with the design of vessels, armament or equipment." Reinforcement of Singapore, Britain's naval stronghold in the South Pacific, by the arrival of Australian troops and the mining of the sea approaches brought only the comment from Ambassador Nomura that "Singapore is an English base and they can do as they please with it. That doesn't concern us," he added. Meanwhile, as far - eastern tension continued as a result of Japanese military movements southward, the United States assigned military observers to three focal points in the \Vestern Pacific—Thailand, Singapore and Batavia, Netherlands East Indies. The war department said .the purpose was to "keep abreast of the military situation throughout the world." State Hospital Report Is Hit Recent statements of James E. Babbitt, Coconino county senator, that Arizonians "should be proud'" of the Arizona State Hospital were challenged yesterday in a letter from the A. D. A. Club to the senator, copies of which were sent to Frank W. Sharpe, chairman of the house appropriations committee, and Governor Osborn. "If you had investigated the situation you could not possibly have made so rash a statement," the letter, which was signed by Delia Skorpick, secretary of the club, and members, said. "We are certain that at last the hospital has been taken out of politics, and if properly supported would become an institution of which we should be proud." The letter deplored the lack of funds properly to feed the patients, declaring the patients were limited to 70 cents per day and denied eggs, milk, butter and citrus in their diet. "Enclosed is a list of names of members of the A. D. A. Club," it said, "who demand that you pass the state hospital appropriation bill allowing S1.50 per day for each patient. This certainly is not too much." In the letter, the club members said they recently visited the hospital in the company of other Phoenix civic clubs.
