XXXII, NO. 150 JAPAN'S PROPOSAL WOULD FORCE U. S. TO QUIT PACIFIC TOKIO PROPOSITION BASE BE ESTABLISHED IN PACIFIC WOULD RENDER AMERICA HELP LESS; GUAM "KEY TO THE PACIFIC (By Herbert Corey) WASHINGTON. Sept. 23 Nothing lias stirred certain section of naval tratetrieta as the proposition ad vanced bv Japan that no naval bases hall be established in the Pacific. "-Japan is really demanding that we rive a written guarantee to lose any war In which we might engage with fcer." is the pinion o one officer. There Is no contrary opinion so far as I have discovered. Not only would ntr hands be completely tied, but the T'Powd agreement would be a jug handled one. It would apply only to the United States. It is the shrewdest and most dangerous suggestion yet made In connection with the pro rsi parley for the limitation or re duction of armaments. The naval officers with whom I have talked trrtn ruefully in recognition . or Japan's "slirancss." Naval Officers' Opinion "If they put that through, they've pot us." they say. ' The situation Is as simple as a ancake. The Philippines are today practically undefended. The archi ll co is. speaking generally, a dis tance of but 1.500 miles from the Japan coasts. There are plenty f (mod landing places. In the event tt war Japanese transports could land troops at Manila within three lav in sufficient number to over whelm the comparatively small American force normally kept on the islands. Once the Philippines were in the hands of the Japanese they would stay there. "We could not get Ibera back. That Is to say. we could "not get them back by military means, ac-m-dimr m lhi officers who have dis- cmswed the situation. American have, of course, complete confidence that In the end we could out-last Japan and win the war through the exercise of economic pressure. We could, that is. if other nations did tvot exercise pressure on us. as we did upon Russia and Japan at Ports mouth, and Induce us to I accept a peace without victory. But we could no win the Philippinps back by arms, I and the loss of the Philippines at the beginning of a war would be a ser ious Wow to our prestiKe. Nearest Naval Bat 5.000 Miles Away The reason why this Is true is that the nearest American naval base Hawaii is 5,000 miles from Manilla. Vice-Admiral Niblack once estimated that if an American fleet were to sail from Panama for Manila, accompan panied by all the fuel ships practi cailv available and coaling at Hono lulu tile bunkers and oil tanks would he practically empty on arrival. There would be a small surplus, but pot enough to be of real value. This estimate was based upon the project of steaming at the lowest economical speed. ' This would not be possible In time ef war. of course, for high speed and constant zigzagging would then be enforced to evade the enemy subma rine. It is doubtful If. under war conditions, any war fleet could carry In bunkers and as cargo sufficient fuel to permit its vessels to reach Manila. Rrantln that the fleet did reach Manila it would be helpless if the Japanese were in command of the Philippine ports. It would be . compelled to give battle under condi- linns which would amount to a guar antee of defeat. The enemy need not even come out to fight, knowing that In a few days time the American shins would be dead on the sea Forced by circumstance, the Ameri can fleet would have to enter a de fended harbor to attack the enemy fleet. The experience of the late war Indicates what the result would be. Guam Ky to the Pacific" The only manner by which this - disastrous defeat In the event of a war with Japan could be avoided Is by the fortification of Guam. This -key to the Pacific," as all naval strategists have called it, is worth inokinr uo on the map. Hector C. Rvwater. author of "Sea Power in the Pacific" declares that "to say that Gum bears to the Philippines the uim relation that Heligoland bore to the German bight would be to un derstate rather than to exaggerate the facts."
