Indicates Jap Menace Greater Than Is Apparent WASHINGTON Winsto Churchills pointed emphasis o the delicate situation in the fa east attracted much attentio here Monday for the Britisl prime minister seemed to intimat that the danger oX trouble bctweer the United States and Japan wa greater than between Japan am Britain Although there were many passages in the prime ministers address Sunday that provoked interest most of the diplomatic speculation centered on Church ills pledge that Britain would stand by the United States in the event of a showdown in the Orient Pending a careful study o Churchills report on his histori Atlantic meeting with Presiden Hooscvelt congressional commen was slow in forthcoming but tlu opinion among administration supporters seemed to be that la pan had been given a warning thaCe6uldjpt be misunderstood VChurchill noted bracketed am the Philippines specifically as the two spots immediately menace by the present Japanese expansior southward in Asia Thereafter however the stress was on the efforts of the United States to pre serve peace in the far east The United States ChurchI said is laboring with infinite patience to arrive at a fair anc amicable settlement which vvil Rive Japan the utmost reassur ance for her legitimate interests We earnestly hope these ne gotiations will succeed But this I must say that if these hopes fail ive shall of course range ourselves unhesitatingly at the side of the United Stales Until Churchill spoke Sunday the general belief was that British interests would be the ones im mediately menaced by any new Japanese move However the prime ministers words indicated that the situation contained ele ments of importance to the United States that were not apparent on the surface Besides the far east another discussionprovoking topic wa the length to which Churchill went in admonishing the United States to have no illusions about its place on Hitlers program of conquest It was the first time thai the prime minister has dwelt exten sively on what he conceived to be the German intentions re garding this country He recited he resultsof the nazi one by one list of na tions overcome said the turn of the United Slates would come if Russia and Brit ain could be disposed of In some diplomatic quarters this part of his Speech was looked on as an oblique appeal for active American participation on Brit ain s sideIt pointed out that he cited the fate of the manv countrics that failed to take united and positive action against the German danger until it wns too late Others however preferred to interpret this section of the ad dress as an effort to bring home to the people of the United States a realisationof the undiminishcd gravity of the situation and lo impress the nation with the vital importance nf its role as the ar senal of democracy This part of the speech never theless was expected to receive considerable study in the legisla tive camp which is opposed lu administration foreign policy It seemed probable too that there would be congressional requests for information on the nature of tiie continual council which Churchill said the high British and American military and naval
