forces appeared to have launched furious and widescale counteractions against the German invaders The significance of tlie Toklo governments resignation was not yet clear It appeared likely that a drastic Japanese censorship has been imposed temporarily preventing correspondents from revealing implications of the move However there appeared to be lillle doubt that thecabinet crisis arose out of Japans position and plans resulting from the Russo German hostililies The Japanese have been bej lieved to be considering three courses ot action strong drive to the south Pacific probably centering for moment on French IndoChina and the powerful Camranh naval btse move against the Russians in Siberia probably limed to coincide with a largescale nazi victory over soviet fighting forces should one be achieved of the war in China in an attempt to bring the China incident to a close Most opinion in the far east London and Washington hns re garded the south Pacific move against French IndoChina as the most likely and Imminent of the panese alternatives The Japanese situation how ever is notably complex ami there are many crosscurrents The Jap anese army is known lo be dis satisfied with its
