of their objection to the Manchoukuo oil monopoly in diplomatic representations It was officially admitted today that Sir Robert Clive the British ambassador gave a note on the sub ject to Foreign Minister Koki Hirota Nov 24 and although the United States embassy and the for eign office declined to give out in formation it was authoritatively learned that Ambassador John Jo seph C Grew of the United States delivered a similar note to the for eign ministers residence this week end With these diplomatic moves the AngloAmerican oil controversy against Japan was regarded by ob servers as having entered a more tense stage The British note which was vig orouly worded reasserted Great Britains contention that the monop oly violates the treaty rights of the opendoor principle of China and insisted that Japan cannot escape responsibility for the actions of Manchoukuo The contents of the American note were not disclosed but in view of the clear concert which is known to be maintained between London and Washington as well as between the British and American embas sies in Tokyo observers had strong reason to believe that it took a line similar to that of the British Believed solved
