Japan Sees "Crisis" With
By Protest
TOKIO. Japan. July 29 (By the As
1 sodated Press.) The Japanese
government has received a com
munication from the United States
pointing oat, among other things,
that America Is unable to recognize
Japan's occupation of the northern
half of the island of SaghaliB. The
Ntchl N'ichI says of the nature of the
protest, however, that the impression
exists here that the communication
is not really a protest but rather an
expression of the American viewpoint
on occupation of Russian territory
wtth something or Amenc&s atutaae
towards the territory to be occupied.
It is apparently felt here that any
publication of the details of the note
should emanate from Washington and
not Tokio. Meanwhile it Is considered
likely that Japan, after stature de
liberation will forward ma in nswer to
Washington In an attempr to clarify
official opinion there- and remove any
misunderstanding of Japan's position.
