High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - January 17, 1940, High Point, North Carolina Page Trothe High Point Enterprise Piedmont Center of a High Point. North Carolina wednesday january it. 1910 the War today creation of new japanese Cabinet under Yonai seen As sign of gesture of appeasement toward United states by Dewitt Mackenzie creation of a new and More Liberal japanese Cabinet under the premiership of the Able and affable Admiral Yonai is generally interpreted As a gesture of appeasement toward the United states and in that sense As tending to improve the not too Happy relations Between our countries. The nature of this unexpected a move is such As to make it Patent that it is a direct overture of sorts. The dominant military party whose chinese policy has caused the american japanese difficulties has been pushed gently or did it move voluntarily out of the Center of the spotlight. Tea for two both of Japan a great political parties have ministers in the new Cabinet to make it representative of the country As a whole. Admiral Yonai is said to be our Friend. In Short everything is set for Tea for two. This startling change however is achieved with a certain naivete which rather labels it As an expedient born of necessity. It conies on the eve of the expiration of the japanese american Trade treaty which we have denounced. Renewal of this agreement is vital to Nippon since under it the japanese have been getting some two thirds of their essential supplies with which to wage War against China. There is no alternative Market available. Change it it of tactics because of this and other circumstances of the quarrel i find difficulty in escaping the conclusion that Japan a change of tactics is merely a palliative to meet the crisis of the expiring treaty a an Effort to influence us to renew the pact. The change Isnit calculated to cure the fundamental cause of the malady. It will than Tea for two out of the Many grave incidents involving american citizens and property and rights in China. It was because Nippon gave no satisfactory indication of intention to abandon these practices that the vital Trade treaty was denounced by Washington six months ago. To expire this month. To stay in Hina the japanese have made it entirely Plain that they intend to stay in China unless they Are blasted out. They plan to control the chinese government and to keep All the chief economic endeavours in their own hands to the exclusion of foreigners. Japanese civilians Are pouring into China by thousands to consolidate the Conquest. The open door policy is of course the great stumbling Block to japanese relations with the Western Powers. It is highly improbable that Tokyo will recede much from the policy of exclusion which has carried Japan so far on the costly chinese adventure. What concessions Nippon is prepared to make to regain american approval remains to be seen.
