There is a strict Law which says All motor vehicle Drivers going in either direction must Stop when a school bus stops. The local Drivers have been reporting violations of this character for some time but so far northing has been done about it. Except for the officials to warn the offensive Drivers. Practically All unofficial evidence Points either to the Fleet movement As a counter to some expected japanese strategy or to consummation of a Quot Wink of the Eye agreement Between London and Washington for Mutual disposition of sea Power under Given emergency circumstances. This Quot Wink of the Eye Quot understand 1-ing or agreement has no official confirmation. The phrase was coined a couple of years ago by Arthur Krock head of the new York times Washington Bureau who wrote he had been expertly informed that a naval agreement which is Quot hardly mor than a Wink or a not Quot exists Between this country and great Britain. The facts today Are that British sea Power is concentrated in the Mediterranean and Home stations and that ours is about to make an emergency Reum to the Pacific. Whith Reserve a or by agreement or coincidence the fact of that disposition is unshakable. And great Brita n plans still coincidentally somewhat to reduce her Asiatic Squadron. At least by Ono Cruiser to be withdrawn from Singapore. Two striking coincidences caused observers to wonder As Long ago As 1934 whether Brit so and american naval movements were related to japanese decisions on 1. Military invasion of Manchuria. 2. Japan a 1934 Quot Oriental Monroe Japan a manchurian invasion began sept. 18. 1931. Twenty four hours earlier just before Maneu vers in the North sea an embarrassed British admiralty revealed Mutiny aboard the Mantic Battle Fleet at Invergordon Scotland. The sept. 18 japanese announcement was that they were invading Manchuria to protect their Railroad and to disperse bandits. From that modest beginning grew a new state controlled by Japan. British Maneu vers were postponed. The ships returned to their Home ports and britons Susta Ned a tremendous Shock to their Pride and sense of Security. Tie Fleet seemed for the moment to be impotent. Another coincidence came in april 1934 As the United states Fleet after two years in the a pacify was returning to the Atlantic. Japan on that occasion announced her Asiatic Monroe doctrine that she wanted a Veta Over com merrier and other relationships Between China and foreign Powers. On april 24-25 1934. When the United states Fleet returned to the Atlantic it went through As a unit time 47 hours.
