Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 12, 1934, Mason City, Iowa FOUR MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE JANUARY 12 THINK ADMIRAL WAS MISQUOTED War Scare Article in Jap Magazine Accuses U S of Spying TOKIO Jan 12 navy of fice spokesman today cast doubt on the veracity of an interview attrib uted to Vice Admiral Nobumasa Suetsugu commander of the navys combined fleets Jn the Gendai mag azine The magazine quoted the admiral as saying Japan must prepare and is preparing to defend herself against what appears to me to be Americas policy of hostilely en circling Japan by every possible means The spokesman said the matter be investigated and observers recalled that at one time the admir al was placed on the navy waiting list for a short time as a penalty for indiscreet utterances after the London naval conference Cites Undbcrgh Trip Instances of encirclement the in terview cited were Col Charles A Lindberghs leisurely flight along the Kurlles in the summer of 1931 and Harold Bromleys abortive at tempt to fly the Pacific in 1930 I may be mistaken but 1 think it is possible they were spying in those islands the admiral was quoted as saying Some time ago an American lieutenant hopped off from Japan on an alleged transPacific flight attempt and turned back after fly ing ive dont know where I think the failure was purposeful BromleyGatty Atempt This reference obviously was the BromleyGatty attempt of Sept 14 Then Lindbergh stayed in the Kuriles over a week on excuse of bad weather The length of his stay is grounds for suspicion Today Americans are survey ing the Aleutian islands on a great cutters airplanes and the telegraph corps I think this means an American policy to surround Japan with every possible means in the event of war before the clash of the main fleets Refers to Russia The admiral referred to the re sumption of RussoAmerican rela tions and the Soviets perfection of armaments in the far east where they have stationed a strong army and a powerful air force In the event of an emergency he continued Russia will attack Japan through the air from three west and while a powerful hostile fleet with a strong air force will attack from the Pacific The

Month Hopeful Senate Will Pass Cuts DES MOINES Jan 12 islators and the state motor vehicle department are receiving notices from county treasurers of a de crease in motor vehicle registration compared with former years it was learned today The department points out this is due probably to two facts one that delinquency does not start un til Feb 1 and the other that mo torists are awaiting to see what disposition la made of the bill to re duce that part the fee based on value after the fourth registration Bill Reduces Fee The house last month passed the bill reducing fees but the senate motor vehicle committee to which it was rfeerred has taken no action on the measure pending house con sideration on the bill providing for refinancing the outstanding 95 000000 In primary road bonds The house committee on high ways recommended indefinite post ponement of the refinancing bill The senate vehicle committee points out that the registration reduction bill would reduce the revenue about which will he needed un less the highway commission is per mitted to adopt a refinancing pro gram If the house overrides Us com mittee report and acts favorably on the senate bill it is highly probable the upper branch will reciprocate and enact the house reduction meas ure Based on Value Under the house bill that part of the registration fee based on value would be 75 per cent of the rate when new upon the fourth registra tion 50 per cent upon the fifth 25 per cent upon the sixth and after the sixth the fee based on value would be eliminated Under the present law the fee for the first five registrations is based on the full value when new and after the fifth valuation on 50 per cent of the full value The other factor entering into registration fees is weight which would not be
