States would re taliate with specific action Satur day against Japans occupation of naval and air bases in French In doChina He told a press conference there would be something out of Wash ington Saturday but would not say exactly what But to members of the presi dential party spending the weekend here the most likely move appeared to be the freez ing of Japanese credits and as sets in the United States Many persons indeed consid ered that step inevitable but whether the United States was ready to take additional measures appeared to be awaiting future determination depending on how the international situation devel ops in the Pacific To a question whether events in the Far East have sharply ac centuated the dangers in the in ternational situation Mr Roose velt suggested that the answer be put this way Events in the Far East arc bringing a greater awareness on the part ot the public to the dan gers of the Informed quarters In Wash ington were agreed that extra ordinary c ou n t e r measures were in the making as a result of the IndoChina measures designed to expirss this countrys opposition to the action already taken as well as to any further Japanese step in the direction of Singa pore the Netherlands East Indies or the Philippines Capitol hill heard increasingly frerjuent speculation on use of the navy to safeguard American far eastern interests while im mediale prospects here were for some kind of economic action In tins connection it was re garded as significant that Treas ury Secretary Morgenthau cut short a visit with his parents in Bar Harbor Maine to return to the capital Friday explaining that the national emergency made it necessary for him to do so In the past Morgenthau has been active in working out antiaxis economic measures The

the matter at once Henderson breaks the cotton market every time he opens his mouth Smith known as Cot ton Ed said t Senator Thomas also critical of Hendersons price fixing attempts said he would offer two riders to farm bill dealing wilh wheat marketing in an effort to restrict action by Henderson until con gress had considered price fixing legislation Thomas said one rider would prohibit any attempt to fix prices on farm products either directly or indirectly until con gress passed such authorizing The second lie said would pre vent release of any government cotton loan stocks until after the end of the present emergency un less congress specifically ordered some stocks released Officials in charge of approximately 6000000 bales of cotton acquired by the government under pricesupport ing loans in recent years have been reported considering release ol some of this supply to offset re cent sharp increases in cotton prices Senator Smith said that mere talk ot such a release had brok en the cotton market just when farmers were beginning to move a new crop to market The senate recently passed a bill by Smith to freeze these loan stocks for the duration of the war but the house has not acted nn the measure The wheat mar keting bill recently was passed by the house and sent to the senate Any amendments to it normally would get prompt house attention Although administration and congressional leaders havn an nounced that broad price control legislation would be introduced shortly Smith predicted that farm minded lawmakers would battle and Rotterdam and airfields in any
