The Zanesville Signal (Newspaper) - March 21, 1946, Zanesville, Ohio r. S. Considered Attacking Japs Before Pearl Harbor RvWIII.IAMT ___ _ J- By WILLIAM T. PEACOCK WASHINGTON Former :retary of War Henry L. Stim- i has disclosed that President osevelt's "war cabinet" discussed i rejected nine days before irl Harbor an American attack Japanese forces "without fur- T warning." recounted this in a tement sent to the senate- use committee investigating >an's surprise blow on Dec. 7, 1941. The committee made it pub- iic today. Stimson related that on the morning Of Friday, Nov. 28, 1941. he received information of Japa- nese movements along the Asiatic- coast. They were of such a "for- midable character" that he went to the White House. Mr. Roosevelt was still abed but received his secretary of war and they discussed the matter. The Stimson story continued. "He suggested that there were three alternatives, as my notes show: First, to do noth- ing; second, to make some- thing in the nature of an ulti- matum, stating a point beyond which we would fight; or, third, to fight at once. "I said that I felt that to do nothing was out of the question and the president agreed with me. As to The other tuo alternatives, the desirable thing to do from the point of view of our own tactics and safety was to take the initia- tive and attack without further warning. It is axiomatic that the best defense is offense. It is al- ways dangerous to wait and let the enemy make the first move. "I was inclined to feel that the warning given in August by the president against further moves by the Japanese toward Thailand justified an attack without further warning, particularly as their new movement southward indicated that they were about to violate that warning. "On the other hand. I realized that the situation could be made more clean cut from the point of view of public opinion if a further warning were given." (During its hearings, closed a month ago, the committee learned from state department records that Mr. Roosevelt warned the Japanese ambassador in August, 1941, that the United States would take steps to defend its interests if Japan engaged in further aggres- sion toward southeast Asia.) At noon on that same Friday, Stimson said, the so-called "war cabinet" met. In addition to Stim- son its members were Secretary of State Hull, Secretary of the Navy Knox. Admiral Harold R. Stark, the chief of naval opera- tions, and General George C. Mar- shall, the army chief of staff. Stimson said this meeting dis- cussed the possibile meaning of the Japanese an attack on the Philippines, on Thailand, Turn to Page Nine THE ZANESVILLE SIGNAL Associated Press NE4 TcfepJiofos A? 82ND 275 ZANESVILLE, O., THURSDAY EVENING, MARCH FIVE CENTS Our New Phone Number: 6-708 Today's the Day, Folks UNO Parley Won't Be Put Off-Truman Industrialist's Son Held for Attacking Girl Child Is Serious After Being Shot And Hammered Believe in Signs?

This "safety zone" sign at the southwest corner of Mar- ket and North Fifth streets has puzzled motorists for some time. Because it is impossible to park a car in the three- foot space between the sign and the corner, they have proceeded to ignore it, con- sidering that the sign is just one of those screwy things which are found only in Zanesville. Recently, however, police have been tagging cars which have parked in the first parking space west of the sign (not between the sign and the corner Several of the motorists de- clared they will not pay then- fines and one of them appealed to The Signal to expose the thing as a joke Investigation discloses that city council recently author- ized the use of the first park- ing space on the south side of Market street west of Fifth as a taxicab stand. However, the confusing sign was erected on the wrong side of the parking space. The police de- partment is not charged with responsibility of erecting such signs. Its reported to be the business of the service depart- ment, or perhaps the taxicab company will have to put up its ow-n.

The Soviets have asked for a 16-day delaj on the ground they need time to prepare their answer. Reminded of the Russian re- quest for a- postponement, the president was asked what will happen Monday if the Soviets insist on their plea. The president his ques- tioner he had better attend the meeting and find out. Mr. Truman again announced that he was not seeking another meeting of the "Big Three" to deal with differences between Russia and other members of the United Nations. The United Nations Organiza- tion, he said, is supposed to take over things that formerly were discussed by the Big Three. A three power conference was suggested in the senate yesterday iby Senator Pepper I Mr. Truman told newsmen he i would be glad to see any or all members of the UNO at any time.
