Charles S. Calwell. president of the

Federal Reserve Bank officials note
the same trend, saying that a fall In

and has since continued.

arc silks, cotton, leather, wool, shoes,

clared. "The era of extraordinary prices Is
about over," said Mr. Calwell. "Prices

all tend to show n big decrease in tho
cost of those goods which enter into
everyday usu by the public, n condi
tion which will be translated to the
people within a short lime.

"Lessening of public demand" for
many necessities is doing Its part, while
extroordlnary crops ore dojng their bit.
ThV recent fine weather has been a

that cannot help but mean that cotton

"Of course we still supply the world

something of America's nttitude toward

It is 'apparently felt here that any

should emanate from Washington nnd
not Tokio, Meanwhile it is considered
likely that Japan, after mature de
liberation, will forward an answer to
Washington in an attempt to clarify of
ficial opinion there nnd remove any mis
understanding of Jnpan's position.

manently in event of failure, to obtain
satisfaction for the Nikolaievsk mas

eventually be established in Russia.
Hattori declared that nothiug caused
deeper and more sustained resentment
than when a nation's territory was par

suid Russia was ih confusion now nnd

the fact should not be lost sight of that

be detrimental to Japan's interests to

"Hattori fears occupation of Rus
