POSSIBILITY OF ARMING PACIFIC SHIPS IS RAISED Roosevelt Declares Far East Situation Now Rests With Tokio WASHINGTON IP American government it was learned Friday from the best available sources in Washington has ruled out any possibility of a compromise with Japan on the Chinese issue and has raised a possibility that American mer chant ships in the Pacific may be armed While H was reported on he highest authority that negotia tions looking toward peace n the Pacific and far east had not broken down the United States viewed present situation as extremely serious An official white house an nouncement concerning mer chantmen said that these vessels sailing on Pacific routes will not be armed under existing circum stances And when President Roosevelt was asked at a press conference how long he thought those cir cumstances would prevail he said he thought the question might better be asked in Tokia He was asked also whether there was anything he might say on negotiations with Japans en voys in this country and replied that he thought he had better not let he conceded that news on the negotiations had been based largely on dispatches from Tokio and he declared that the reason lor

sleps hat would alter prospects for peace Reports of unabated Japanese lltai7 activity near the border or Thailand brought new concern to Ihe capital Diplomatic representatives nf the other friendly powers in Australia China and the Netherlands took a simi lar serious view The same authority who told of American desires to refrain from any steps altering chances for peace in the far east remarked

Sccrelary Hulls basic formula for peace in the Pacific and resume Ja pans program of armed expan sion southward However two highly placed sen ators while not minimizing the grave state of affairs voiced the belief that Japan was playing a bluffing game which could end m peace more easily in war Senator Connally DTex chairman of the powerful senate foreign relations committee put it this way I think the Japanese now are doing some more bluffing The situation in the far east is coming right up to the boiling point but it isn t going to boil He referred to reports that Japan had sent 100000 troops through occupied French Jndo China to the Thailand Siam bor Scnatcr George D Ga ranking member of the foreign relations group also thought the reported troop movement seems to be largely
