Jap-U. S. Friendship May Bar Soviet War. Eichelberger Says
Japan’s friendship for the
United States and its potential
strength may discourage Russia
from “forcing us into war,” Lt.
Gen- Robert Eichelberger told
Congress in testimony made pub
lic today.
He was testifying before the
Senate Appropriations Commit
tee on foreign aid funds for the
next 12 months. The general is
consultant on Far Eastern affairs
to the Secretary of the Army.
He made his appearance on
June 16 when the Pacific was
quiet and was discussing long
range possibilities- His views take
on added significance today, with
a shooting war under way in
Korea.
The Appropriations Committee
is expected to announce by the
end of this week how much it will
recommend out of the $2,935,000.
000 requested for economic aid
and the $1,222,500,000 being
authorized for military aid to
friendly nations.
Prestige High in Japan.
Gen. Eichelberger told the com
mittee American prestige remains
high in Japan, because the Jap
anese respect American honesty,
justice and productive capacity. At
the same time, he said, the Jap
anese have “reluctantly conceded
a high prestige to Russia,” as the
Soviets have advanced their in
terests in Europe and Asia. Then
he added:
"The Japanese realize it is only
700 miles from Vladivostok to
Tokyo and that Japan is vulner
able. On the other hand, they
realize that if the Reds were in
control of Japan all the good
things done by America would be
ended. Japan’s industrial power
would be exploited and Russian
troops occupying Japan would live
off the country. Japan fears Rus
sia, but in view of her geographi
cal position, her thoughts are
constantly concerned with the
relative powers of the United
States and Russia.”
The hearings indicate official
Washington was not expecting the
sudden invasion of the northern
Communists. On June 13 William
C. Foster, deputy economic co
operation administrator, testified:
"I am happy to tell the Appro
priations Committee that, in my
judgment, the trend of events in
South Korea 1s more favorable
than lt has been at any time since
the liberation of that country in
1945. The reasons for optimism
are military, political and eco
nomic. It is my considered opin
ion that in the face of great
difficulty the government of the
Republic of Korea is now steadily
gaining strength in each of these
three sectors.
wen-Disciplined Army.
“1. A rigorous training program
has built up a well-disciplined
army of 100,000 soldiers; one that
is prepared to meet any challenge
by North Korean forces, and one
that has cleaned out the guerrilla
bands in South Korea in one area
after another.
“2. The political sector is
equally reassuring. On May 30 a
national election was conducted
in a peaceful and orderly fashion.”
During the discussion that fol
lowed, Republican and Demo
cratic Senators disagreed as to
whether it was necessary at the
close of the war to divide Korea
at the 38th parallel, leaving the
Communists in control of the
northern half.
The committee was told by E.
First Joint Talks Fail
To Settle Rail Strike
Sy th» Associated Press
CHICAGO, July 5.—Representa
tives of striking switchmen and
five Midwestern and Western rail
roads had their first joint peace
talks yesterday, but nothing came
of them.
They are expected to confer
again today.
The meeting was arranged by
Government mediators trying to
end the 11-day walkout of the AFL
Switchmen’s Union of North
America. Union chiefs had two
sessions with rail men representing
the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific,
the Denver & Rio Grande Western,
the Great Northern, the Western
Pacific and the Chicago Great
Western. The strike of 4,000 men
has shut down all except the Great
Northern. It is operating on re
duced schedules.
One source close to the con
ferees said the two talks were
merely exploratory.
Another added that there is a
ray of hope in the fact that both
sides are now face to face across
a table.

A. Johnson, director of ECA’s
Korean division, that the 38th
parallel was “only a division line
for taking the surrender of the
Japanese forces. It was never in
tended to become a political fron
tier.”
“Wait a minute,” broke in Sen
ator Ferguson, Republican, of
Michigan. “Did we not know
that, when we put the Commu
nists in the north and we took
the south, it would remain that
way? Do you mean to say that
the American officials that made
these divisions, like we did in Ger
many and the Far East, did not
anticipate and should not have
anticipated what would happen?”
“There was an unjustified faith
in the Russians,” Mr. Johnson re
plied.
Turning to the Importance of
Japan in the whole Far East situ
ation, Gen. Eichelberger testified
that today Japan is a “military
pigmy.',' He recalled that after
V-J day it was his task to demo
bilize the Japanese army and de
stroy its war material.
Nevertheless, he described the
Japanese as the "know-how” men
of the Far East, “a hard-working
people peering into an uncertain
future.” He said her only military
potential today is a "brave and
partly trained manpower.” Then
he made this prediction:
“If Japan remains friendly to
the United States, and has her
security guaranteed by American
troops or by other provision in a
future peace treaty, the advance
of the Reds across the Pacific is
stymied. . . .”
95 Per Cent Called Friendly.
Gen. Eichelberger estimated
that probably 95 per cent of the
Japanese are friendly to the
United States, “and, with their
military and industrial potential,
they still furnish a certain, if
small balance of power in the Far
East.”
“As the 14 men in the Kremlin
size up the military capabilities
over the world,” he continued,
“their thoughts must turn to the
fact that Japan could be of tangi
ble aid to the United States
should Russia force war upon us.”
Gen. Eichelberger expressed the
belief that the “Japanese are one
of the few peoples of the world
who can meet the Russians on
equal terms in combat; and, even
if we refuse to think out loud
about it, one must admit that
should we be forced into war,
every American will soon be ask
ing, 'What about Japan?’
12 Chemical Plant Of Adah
Arrested in East Geimany
•y tho Associated Press
BERLIN. July 5—At least IS
officials of the Solvay chemical
plant in the Russian zone of Ger
many have been arrested on
charges of economic sabotage, it
was learned yesterday.
West Berlin representatives ol
the company said several other
leading officials had escaped to
West Germany.
The East German government
said yesterday it was preparing an
"economic sabotage trial” against
Solvay officials. It charged them
with conspiring to prevent nation
alization of the company because
"99.3 per cent of its assets are
foreign-owned.”
Solvay was part of the prewar

Notice to Water Consumers in the
Washington Sabnrban Sanitary District
Due to the advent of hot weather the water consumption of tho Sanitary
District has now reached such amount that greater conservation in tho use
of water from the public supply must be exercised to properly protect tho
public health and safety.
It is therefore resolved. That pursuant to the provisions of Section 10,
Chapter 122 of the Acts of the General Assembly of Maryland of 1918 and
amendments thereto, it shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corpora
tion, or his, her or their agents or employes to use any water supply furnished
by this commission for the purpose of watering or sprinkling any lawns,
shrubbery, flowers or gardens, or for any purpose other than for family or
business use within the building after July 1, 1950, until further notice by
this commission, except that the watering of plants and shrubbery by the
use of a sprinkling can or bucket, without the use of a hose or pipes, and of
newly laid sod under the conditions of a special permit, will bo permitted.
Some of the necessary works to augment the water supply end the distri
bution system of the Sanitary District have been completed and tho
remainder should be completed well before next summer so that it will
not be necessary to impose similar restrictions on the use of watar. The
cooperation of the people in the conservation of woter is therefore earnestly
requested at this time. If it is forthcoming there will be, boning unforeseen
major accident, enough woter for the essential needs of tho community and
to provide for tho tremendous building operations now occurring in tho area.
