Britain France and Italy has given rise to an impression here that the agreement may be regarded officially as a regional arrangement among the three countries to run until 1936 without official modifica tion of the London and Washington naval treaties It is felt here that there is a tend ency in Toyko and Washington to avoid anew fivepower conference to ratify the accord and to avoid if possible the necessity for formal ap proval which would mean submis sion of the agreement to the United Stales senate and the Japanese diet Dispatches from Tokyo today were interpreted as indicatingthat the political opposition there was atempting to impede indorsement of the accord on the ground that the French submarine tonage allocated in the agreement is not satisfactory to Japan Under the agreement France gets about 81000 tons of submarines while Japan has only 52000 tons In the face of these developments there was a growing belief that the text of the accord may not be pub
