To First Family
Title Is Upheld
E' the Associated Press
There was a "first family of Vir
ginia" a thousand years before the
first English Colonies were established
in that region.
David I. Bushnell, jr., archeologist
of the Smithsonian Institution, said
today this family was a tribe of In
dians which antedated by centuries
the Algonquins encountered by Capt.
John Smith on his explorations.
Bushnell told of finding arrow and
spear heads, ax heads and other im
plements which had been used by
the ancient tribe.
In finding traces of ancient settle
ments, Bushnell used the earliest
records and maps of the territory,
made by Capt. Smith in 1624. and
the most modern methods of aerial

fought over in two wars, and used
for building sites for almost 250 years.

COURT ISSUE DEAD,
Would Not Back Any Plan to
Curb Tribunal's Power,
By the Associated Press.
PHOENIX. Ariz , September 30 —
Senator Henry F. Ashurst. who as
chairman of the Judiciary Committee
led President Roosevelt's fight for re
i organization of the Federal courts,
said in an interview today he believed
the issue dead.
Replying to a question as to whether
he expected the court bill to come,

minister, with the unfailing sense of
humor, added that ”* * * it is earnestly
hoped that your excellency's Govern
ment, with full appreciation of the cir
cumstances. will co-operate with the
measures taken by the imperial Japa
nese government.” In other words,
not only does the Japanese govern
ment refuse to refrain from bombing
cities like Nanking, but it actually'asks
the United States Government to co
operate with it. probably by with
drawing its officials and citizens so as
to avoid complications.
Japan's Reply Guarded.
The Japanese reply to the State De
partment's note of August 17 ren
dering Japan responsible for the loss
of life and property of American citi
zens had been kept carefully concealed
because it contained a complete re
jection of America’s point of view.
The note was sent August 31.
At various times w'hen State Depart
ment officials were asked what was
happening to that communication
they answered that the matter will be
discussed in due time. The reason
for this secrecy is not due to the hush
hush policy of the State Department,
but was prompted by the desire of re
sponsible officials not to make things
worse with the American public.
The Japanese government, however,
forced the hand of the State Depart
ment to refer to that, reply by stating
In today’s note that "in regard to
damages sustained by nationals of
third countries * * * our policy has
been stated in my note of August 31.”
Reply Receipt Admitted.
When questioned, on this subject,
Mr. Hull admitted that an unsatisfac
tory reply had been received.
It was learned in well-informed
quarters that as soon as the State
Department received the note con
taining a rejection of all responsi
bility from Tokio. another warning
was issued pointing out to the Jap
anese government that the point of
view of the United tSates remains
unaltered—that is to say, that this
Government will consider Japan re
sponsible for any loss which American '
citizens might incur as a result of
the present hostilities.
There will be no further correspond
ence with Japan regarding the aerial
bombings until new' developments ;
