TOKYO, Dec. 28.-The so-calci "protection clause" of the Pacific treaty drawn up by the Washngto conference has aroused a, storm of o n Japan and there were Mmbers today that Japan would enly ratify with reservations unless the pact is revised. Vice Foreign Minister Tanaka received the diet committee and promised a full inquiry into the "pro tection clause" and complete inter pretation of it. "Ratification is possible, but only with reservation covering the 'proh tection clause'," said the foreign office official. Members of the government claim that it would be humiliating to Japan to include the homeland in the treaty.

The advisory committee Is made up of peace-loving men and women. so no comments have been forthcoming from any of them. Most of them probably have been convinced, from the start, that their committee was created chiefly to satisfy the de mands of various organisations. of geographical sections and govern mental departments fpr some kind of partJcipation in the, conference. To a large dztent, thr ork of the committee has not tragressed be yond the bounds of this task of "rep resentatlon." The subcommittee on naval armament took its work a lit tis more seriously and submitted an elaborate report on the importance of maintaining a powerful submarine defense for the coast lines and the possessions of the United States. So carefully was this report made by the experts of this committee and so well were its arguments presented that it won the unanimous indorse ment of the advisory committee. Thereupon that body preented this report to Secretary Hughes, for the use of the American delegation. When the report was drawn up, in the early days of the conference, the British propaganda against the sub marine had only begun. Secretary Hughes' proposals for an allotment of 90,000 tons each for the United States and Great Britain and of 54, 000 tons for Japan had brouvht only a reservation for future discussion from Great Britain. Nor war there any reason to believe that Secretary Hughes' proposal represented any thing else than the actual needs of the t'nited States. Didn't Fool Subcommittee. But the British propaganda was persistent and powerful. Ably abetted by the silence of Secretary Hughes, the representativeq of Great Britain were able to .promulgate their doctrines with little hindrance. They won a lot of publicity for their view.. but the naval armament subcommit tee of the advisory committee waif not misled by It. It merely made more emphatic lts recommendations for a 100.000-ton submarine fleet for the United Utates. Finally, last week, the submarine debate began in the secret session. of the conference. By that time the British were so encouraged by the success of their propaganda that they made a bold demand for the complete abolition of the submarine. Against the view. of Mr. Balfour, Mr. Hughes presented the report of the advisory committee. He did so guardedly, however. He was care ful to plead that he presented this report "not as the spirit of the American Government, but as a re port of the advisory committee." Somehow the .Secretary seemed to fear that by the bold way In which this report took issue with the Brit ish views might not be construe I as friendly. For the report was a strong pr. NO CRIME WAVE IN N. Y. CITY, SAYS PROESCUTOR-ELECT NEW YORK, Dec. 283.-Denying that Manhattan is in the grip of a crime wave, JToab H. Banton, district attor ney-elect of New York county, yester day asserted there has been less crime this year than last year or the year before. 'New York is the best big city in the world" he said. "there Is less crime In proportionl to population than an3P where else, when you consider the 10,000,000 people who have access to the .city." DR. SHELTON RETURNING TO DANCERS OF THIBET SHANGHAI, ChIna, Dec. 3.-Dr. A. L. Shelton, the msIonSar'y who was captured by the Yunnan bandits est year and recued by an Amnerican~ serchng party, has returned to Chin. after a rest in America, and I. on his way to L.ba..a to become court phy eican to the supreme head of the~ fuddhist church in China, the Dali Lama, who believes himself to be the reincrnation of Buddha.. While In America Dr. and Mrs. maatam =mMene th=mneles with 1 SAMMY! risers Goes aste Basket sentation of the American navy's view of the need for submarine de fense. It declared the submarine necessary to protect our two long coast lines and to maintain the out lying possessions of the United States. "If these colonies once fall," It said, "the expenditure of men nec essary to recapture them will be tremendous and may result in a drawn war which wodid really be a United States defeat. The United States needs a lasme submarine force to protect its interests." Apparently this report was worth only the paper on which it was writ ten. Secretary Hughes waved it aside In the next day's dlscussitne and presented a proposal to cut our submarine fleets to $0,000 tons, in volving the scrapping of $5,000 tons of existing American submarines. On this proposal no advice, counsel. or suggestion was asked from the advisory committee or of its subcom mittee on naval armament. Under those circumstances it would not be fair here to print the names of the distinguished individuals who make up this subcommittee. For those who are looking for a reason for Secretary Hughes de liberate ignoring of the committee's report, we might commend a single paragraph from that document. It tells in terse and vigorous' language the real reason for Great Britain's opposition to submarine fleets. At the same time it gives the unanswer able reason for America's main tenance of a powerful submarine fleet. Here's the Reason. This paragraph of the report fol lows: "A nation possessing a great mer chant marine protected by a strong surface navy naturally does not de sire the added threat of submarine warfare brought against it. This is particularly the case if that nation gains its livelihood through overseas commerce. If the surface navy of such a nation were required to leave its home waters, it would be greatly to its advantage if the submarine threat were removed. This could be accomplished by limiting the size of the submarine so that it would be restricted to defensive operation in its own home waters. "On tbe other hand, if a nation has not a large merchant marine, but is dependent upon seaborne commerce from territory close aboard, it would be necessary to carry war to her. It would be very natural for that nation to desire a large submarine fore to protect the approaches on the se and to attack troop transports, supply ships, etc., of the enemy. Control of the surface of the sea only by the at tacking power would not eliminate It from constant exposure and loss by submarine attacks.'
