WASHINGTON, April 18, (By Associated Press)-Wai be j
tween Panama and Costa Rica growing out of the present bound-,
ary dispute, will not be tolerated by the United States, it was :
learned today authoratively.
Both governments are understood to have been informed that
the obduracy of Panama over the acceptance of the White award, i
insisted upon by the American government, must not be made the '
basis for renewed hostilities.
It was not learnned in what manner the United States had
made known that it would regard hostilities with keen displeasure,
but it was assumed that representatives had been sent to both Pana
ma Cty and San Jose.
Official reports received here recently have indicated ' that
peace on the Isthmus was again about to be disturbed. These
said that Panama was mobilising her army to meet any aggression
from the north, while Costa Rica was assuming a like attitude and
' had been assured either formally or informally of the active sup
port of Selvadore, Honduras and Cuatamala.
WASHINGTON, April 18 (By Associated Press)The American and Jap
anese government have adopted equally firm attitudes vith respect to the
status of the Pacific island of Yap. The diplomatic exchanges between them
on the subject is continuing, but those tcday were made public both in Wash
ington and Tokio. They consist of two memoranda and three forma V
Japan, in itsjast communication, received here during the closing days
of the Wilson administration, insisted that it had been awarded a mar,dal?
for the island by the supreme council at Paris on May 7, 1919, and that it
cculd not agree with the American con tenton that irrespective of any award
or mandate ether nations should have free access to the island for the land
ing and operation of cables.
The viewpoint of the Harding administration, as explained today in of
ficial quarters, is that the question of whether the supreme council did ac
tually award the island to Japan on May 7, as contended by that country and
disputed by President Wilson the state department is of secondary imparl
ance. The American point at issue, it is emphasized, is the recognition by the Allied govern
ment of the orinciole laid down by Mr. Hughes that the United States, as one of the
principal allied associated power, has an equal right with the other in the former over
seas possession of Germany and that those right cannot be disposed of without the con
tent of the American government
Administration officer believe that th? soundness of this position will be conceded
by it former associate in tb war. With this principle recognized, it is believed, the.
detail a to the American rights can be worked out without great difficulty. .
Press dispatches from Tokio today, said the newspaper there seem to think that
Japan would adopt a passive attitude in dealing with the mandate issue, ' ,
Japan, it was pointed out, adopted a very positive attitude with respect to Yap In her
last note, which was couched in plain !angua?e. The Imperial government said in order
for the United State to maintain successful')? it position that the mandate for the Island'
was not warded to Japan by the supreme council, it would have to prove not merely that
reservations with respect to it were made by President Wilson, but also that his views
were accepted by the council. i

Dissillusionment came with the end of her 30
day honeymoon, according to a sensational peti
tion filed in district court Monday by Mrs. Myrtle
Sewell, formerly Myrtle So well, asking for legal
separation from G. C. Sewell.
After a month's married life, Mrs. Sewell pic
tures her new husband as the most loathsome of
men and charges that the marriage on his part was
but carrying cut a conspiracy between Charlie Bar
rett and Sewell, by which it was intended to aid
Barrett in his defense against the charge of mur
dering her first husband, Wiley Sowell.
Mrs. Sewell goes further and charges her hus
band with importuning her since the Barrett trial,
to meet Barrett with a view of settling damage
suits filed by herself and minor son for damage be
cause of the loss of their husband and father.
