Vacation With Congress in Session By HERBERT PLUAEHER A SHIN GTON March 21 President Roose velts decision to leave Washing ton for a vaca tion cruise in southern waters w i t h congress still in session came as some thing of a jolt to many in the cap ital Former presi dents had a habit of sticking close to the white house w he n things were popr ping at the other end of Pennsyl vania avenue Apparently they thought their presence tended to keep the situation well in hand Curiously enough Mr Roosevelt gave the first definite information concerning his proposed trip to newspapermen on the day when both houses of congress were hand ing his administration a sound drubbing The seriate after weeks of dreary debate finally agreed on the St Lawrence waterway treaty and rejected it by a decisive vote At the same time the house in open revolt against administration leadership forced a vote on full pay restoration for federal employes and on more liberal allowances to veterans No indication of Worry If these reversals had any effect on Mr Roosevelts plans to get from everything for a while there was no indication of it around the white house Nor will he carry many worries or cares of state along with him when he puts out to sea off Miami the latter part of March To use one of his favorite expressions I dont do things that Vheri hewas asked by newspaper men who will to Florida whether he Miami his headquarters during his stay he laughingly em phatically informed them no but that Miami would be their head quarters Those who have covered previ ous Roosevelt vacation trips knew exactly what he meant Ability to Relax His capacity for clearing his mind of all business to enjoy such periods of it be for two hours or two fails to amaze those associated withhim His mind enters wholly into the spirit of play when he so com mands it Theres something to be said for his audacity iu choosing to go on a vacation at this time Congress while still held pretty much in check by the administration has shown an increasing tendency to get out of hand at times The fact that the president can show so little concern as to pick up and go off on an extended fishing trip and forget all about it is bound to have its effect LILYANTASHMAN DIES IN NEW YORK NEW YORK March 21 Lilyan Tashman motion picture act ress died this afternoon at Doctors hospital after an illness which

hands across the Pa cific in a significant exchange of notes mutually pledging peace Ivoko Hirota foreign minister of Japan a formal note to Roose velt administration d i p 1 o m a ti c chiefs here asserted the Nippon government has no intention whatever to provoke and make trouble with any other Secretary Hull evidently scan ning reported war clouds in the far east based on strained relations between Japan and soviet Russia replied Received With Gratification I receive this statement with special gratification I am glad to take this oppor tunity to state categorically that the United States on its part has no desire to create any issues and no intention to initiate any con flict in its relations with other The HirotaHull exchange was the first such passage of good will notes since President Roosevelt took office more than a year ago titter Definite Agfebnients vln their mesa age tKe3 i pi bma t ic chiefs of the two uttered definite agreements using the words of Hirota that No question exists between our two countries that is fundament ally Incapable of amicable solu Hull concurred in this statement and added If unhappily there should arise in the future any controversy be tween our two countries the Amer ican government will be prepared as I believe it always has been in the past to examine the position of Japan in a spirit of Further the two statesmen spoke favorably of an extension of trade between the two countries May Open Discussion The notes were released simul taneously to the press at the state department here and in Tokio The Japanese note was delivered by Hiroshi Saito Nippons new ambassador here just one month ago but only today was its re ceipt disclosed Some close observers here saw m it a friendly attempt by Japan to lay the groundwork for discussions with the United States on several questions on which the two nations are not in complete ac cord Included in this category would be Japans unofficial proposal for a preliminary two nation conference for a discussion of naval arma ments before the general naval con ference which is to be held in Wash ington in 1935 Japan has already served notice she will seek parity at that time Introduction of Ambassador Others considered it significant that the note had been dispatched just one week before Pu Yi the for mer boy emperor of China became Emperor Kang Teh of the Japan esesponsored empire of on March 1 In general however Japans note was interpreted as an auspicious introduction of Ambassador Saito accredited with being closer to the military party in Japan than was his predecessor Ambassador De buchi I do not Hirota said that all issues pending between the two nations will be settled in a satisfactory manner Desires Peaceful delations It is the sincere desire of Japan that a most peaceful and friendly relation will he firmly established between her and her great neighbor across the Pacific the United States And to this end T have been exerting my best efforts since I took the post of foreign minister After replying in kind Hull ad ded I feel I should also avail myselr of this opportunity to express my earnest hope that it may be possible for all ofthe countries which have interests in the far east to approach every question existing or which may arisebetween or among them In such spirit and manner that questions may be regulated or resolved with Injury to none and definite and lasting advan tage to Peace Notes High Spots WASHINGTON March 21 Here are some related high spots in the exchange of peace notes between Koki Hirota Japanese foreign min ister and Cordell Hull secretary of state Hirota 1 can state with all the emphasis at my command that the Japanese nation makes its basic principle to collaborate in peace and harmony with all nations and has no intention whatever to provoke arid make trouble with any other Hull I receive this statement with special gratification and I am glad to take this opportunity to state categorically that the United Stateson its part has iio desire to create any issues and no intention to Initiate any conflict in its rela tions with other Hirota It is a matter for grati ficationto both our countries that they produce very few commodities which represent conflicting inter ests in their foreign trade that each supplies what the other wants that they are good customers of each others products and that they are strengthening of interdependence year after Hull I perceive every reason to anticipate that the United States and Japan will continue to develop their reciprocal trade with benefit to both countries and where there may be competition with constant reciprocal good Hirota I firmly believe that viewed in the light of the broad aspects of the situation aiuTstudied exists between our Uvo countries that is fundamentally Incapable of amicable Hull I believe that there are in fact no questions between our two countries which if they be viewed in the proper perspective both countries can with any war rant be regarded as not readily susceptible to adjustment by pa cific Hirota It is the sincere desire of Japan that a most peaceful and friendly relation will be established between her and her great neigh bor across the Pacific the United Hull You may count upon my earnest desire to favor any meas ure or steps which may be practica ble towards this end and toward fos tering at the same time relations of peace good will and general bene fit among all members of the fam ily of KEEP WATCH FOR SAMUEL INSULL Long Range Telescopes Are Trained on Horizon at
