War Clouds Over Mukden Area Where 'Incident' of '31 Started World Toward War II By GLENN BABB AP Foreign News Analyit The anniversary of one of his- _ tory's turning points slipped by almost unnoticed yesterday. The world is surfeited with anniver- saries recalling tragic and bloody the the events, and dread of more to come turns men's eyos to anxious future rather than past. But it was on Sept. 18, tha: the Japanese army launched its conquest of Manchuria, there- by ushering in the most terrible 35 years in the'human story. His- torians a ceny rutehne cwitn__ tonans a century hince may de- bate whether the second world war should bo dated from Ja- pan's J931 blow ;il work', peace or Hitier's loosing his armies on Poland Sept. 1, 1939. Showed Mussolini The Way The Japanese adventure eonsi- tuted the first major blow struck by a great power -at the world order established after the con- flict of 1914-18. It thqwed the way to Mussolini in Ethiopia and Albania and to Hitler in Austria, Czechoslovakia and Po1 -nd. It set the Japanese nation, with the militarists in the saddle, on n course that led almost inevitably to Pearl Harbor and the destruc- tion of Japan as a major power. The Japanese called that 1931 affair "the Mukden since it was on the outskirts of that historic Mnnchurian city that the first shots were fired. The Japanese claimed they had caught Chinese soldiers tamper- ing with the Japanese-owned South Manchuria railwav and had to on them. Outside Ja- pan the general belief was that the- Japanese army had manu- factured an incident to excuse the launching of n carefully-lnid plan of conquest. At any rate the conquest became a fact within the next few months. Mukden Ajrain War Center Once again Mukden is the cen- ter of warlike developments and Manchuria is a battleground. Despite the continuing efforts of American peacemakers, China's civil war is rising to new heights ClT f f Iinr7 4 lin nlt-innnn t fresh from conferences with his master at the summer capital, Kuling, and both nationalists and Chinese communists say that this presages an all-out nationalist campaign to destroy the nist hold in Manchuria, the rich- est prize of the conflict, i The objectives of the national- list campaign are the same as Ithosc of tin.- Japanese in .1931 ,-md the succeeding years of Japanese- Chinese war, Harbin and North- ern Manchuria, Kalgan and inner Mongolia. The first strategic aim appears to be to drive a wedge between the communists who still hold most of Mnnchurin and Ycnan, the communist capital in Shensi several hundred miles to the west. i Reds Will Fifht Whether such a slicing of com- munications would prove a mor- atl blow to the communists is doubtful. Their armies live large- ly off the country. The war pro- d_uction of the Yenan area is not significant, and the Manchurian communists doubtless will fight to the end to maintain themselves in the northern provinces adja cent to a friendly power, Soviet Russia. The Soviet armies have been withdrawn from Manchuria and as far as the evidence goes Rus sia is maintaining a correct neu trahty toward :he Chinese strife Nevertheless the struggle in China is one phase of the world- wide contest between the com- munist and democratic nations and it is difficult to see how long it can continue without produc- ing repercussions far beyond China's borders. eached the decontrol board as it pened the. second day of its Barings on demands for restora- lon of price ceilings to dairy roducts. Lewis asserted that a shortage f meat already has reached une proportions" in six south- astern Kentucky counties, which e did not further identify. Aside from going without meat, ewas added, miners in many lo- alities have been unable to ob- am lard and fats for cooking nd seasoning. "The very method of price fix- ng under the Lewis said, operates against the distribution adequate meat supplies to ming areas because the seller can profit more in nearby mar- kets. "Those in the know assert that we face the worst meat shortage ever experienced in the imme- diate weeks to come unless meat prices are decontrolled.
