Washuvctox Dec 2 Whats behind
the Japanese reluctance to acceDt the
American figures filing the ratio of pre-
etil naval strength on a basis of 5 for
Great Britain 5 for the United States
end 3 for Japan
Thi correspondent lias had an oppor
tunitj to examine the official correspond
dence pasting between Japan and the
United States in the secret sessions
therein the American Navy explains in
detail the method b which the 5-5-3 ra
tio was fixed It is an open and shut
cae The formula used tales account
fin nf the Japanee estimate of her own
tnngth haed upon the tonnage figures
the nerseii turnisncd and also takes Into
account every contention made by the
Japanese and works out finally to a 5 5
3 every time It is a plain piece of ar
ithmetic and the quandary of alt vrlio
have had a chance to learn how the
American program a worked out is
what possible objection the Japanese
hate to its acceptance
The conclusion being general
reached parti from things the Japanese
themselves are saying and parti from
the hints the let fall in the secret ses
sions is that the Japanese are getting
lead to agree absolute to the Ameri
can estimate of existing naval strength
but are planning to insist to condition
their acceptance upon another agreement
with respect to fortifications and naval
bases in the Pacific This question has
heretofore not been raised by the Japan
ese in the official conference though in
the meetings villi the press the Japanese
delegates have emphasized the import
ance of fortifications
The American delegation doesnt ear
the introduction of the fortification prob
lem though of course it will hardly wish
to explore that controversial field until a
-definite understanding has been readied
on the basiVof the original Hughes pro
gram concerning limitation and reduc
tion of vessels afloat as veil as under
When fortifications are considered the
vitw of the American delegation will be
lutud to be most generous The Japan
rse cannot contend that the bases of the
the Hughes program of reduced strength
goes into effect What the Japanese real
1 want is a promise that the United
Slates will not build up her present for
tifiiatiuns or add new bases This pledge
probab would be forthcoming if recip
rocatcd b the Japanese
Naval liases bear a distinct relation
thiii to naval strength if they are
it nil near the scene of possible naval
operations If the United States were to
conduct an offensive war against Japan
the naval base at Cavite in the Phil
ippines would have to be much more
effective it is contended b the Amer
ican experts than it is at the present and
the very fact that it has not been re
enforced the Americans contend is
proof of the pacific intention of the Unit
ed States The fortification of Guam
however is considered b America as
more of a defense of Hawairthan an out
post for offense though to be sure the
American view is that the Japanese them
selves know how little value are the pres
ent facilities at Guam
The trouble is the Japanese have not
jet made clear wliat it is they do want
if the agree as teems inevitable to the
5-5-3 ratio The American delegates
have explained of course tharthe Japan
ese ate not eager to take into account
vessels under construction Of course if
these are eliminated the 5-5-3 ratio
would be disturbed but the American
contention is that a vessel on which
money has been spent is to that extent a
part of that countrys existing naval
First the Japanese contended that pre
dreadnaughts need not be excluded even
though more than twenty years old
Americas experts included them and
still came to a 5-5-3 result The repre
sentatives of the United States went still
further and included the Mutsu in the
Japanese estimate of her own strength ai
a partly completed vessel and still
reached a 5-5-3 conclusion The Japan
ese for sentimental reasons want to keep
the Mutsu as she is ninety eight per
rent complete but the United Statea has
a battleship of similar strength also
nearly completed and the original pro
posal to scrap everything under con
struction till stands Secretary Hughes
is arguing that if once the principle is
violated the whole structure of the Am
erican proposals i broken down He in
sists that the vessels under construction
must lie counted in any ratios and must
be scrapped The- United State ba
sjient 330000000 already on ahips in
the process of building and theAmerican
delegation has told the Japanese that the
public opinion of this country would not
countenance the loss of such a large um
For Columbia and vicinity Partly
cloudy to cloudy weather tonight and
Saturday not much change in tempera
ture lowest tonight near the freezing
For Missouri Unsettled weather with
ram Saturday and west unit rr
tions tonight somewhat colder extreme
east portion tonight
Shippers forecast Within a radius of
200 miles of Columbia the lowest tem
perature during the next 36 hours will
be 32 west 28 north 36 east and 3

to scrap everything she was building In
other words the sentimental fondness of
the Japanese for the Mutsu is large
ly counterbalanced by a sentimental
fondness for the 330000000 already
spent by America

Delegation of Spokesmen To
day Makes Point Clear
She Now Wants Six
Months Notice
Seventy Per Cent Ratio Not to
Be Pressed to Point of
Breaking Up the
Br United Pretu
WAsntNCTOf Dec 2 The Japanese
position toward the naval ratio hinges on
the question of guaranties for her na
tional securit
This point was made emphatically
clear by a delegation of spokesmen today
who reiterated an earlier suggestion that
an agreement whereby Japan would not
be attacked without say six months no
tice was what the Japanese now desire
She would ic1d it was suggested to
any allotment of naval ratio above 60
per cent but the American group is not
inclined to make such a bargain
The significance of the six months
notice feeler is that Great Britain is lay
ing the ground work for abrogation of
the Anglo Japanese Alliance and Japan
wants to liave her national security in
the Pacific agreeably substituted there
In an event Japan is not going to
press the TO per cent naval ratio plan to
the point of breaking up the conference

c H H Banks
The new constitution is the most im
portant thing that Missouri lias faced
in the last half century said Edward F
Regenhardt of St Louis field agent of
the new Constitution Association of Mis
souri at the luncheon given at the Dan
iel Boone Tavern by the Commercial
Club in honor of the board of directors
of the Boone County Hospital
Mr Regenhardt is here in the interest
of the revision of the Missouri constitu
tion and in his speech he told of what
the new constitution means to Boone
The main idea is that we want ouf
borrowing powers increased so that we
can make needed improvements No
municipality lias all nf the improvements
that it actually needs For mvself I
want to see this university the best in
the United States he said
Mr Regenliardt went further to ex
plain that the association ha submitted
twenty one names from each political
party of the state and three names of
men allied with no political party and
from these names fifteen will be chosen
as the commission To hold down ex
penses they are to be called by conven
tion rather than by election
There have been no politics in selec
tion of delegates and every effort is being
made to make it as non paitisian as pos

commission Mr Hill said that the Com
mercial Club was giving the lunrheun to
pay honor to the building commission for
elficint way in which they hail performed
their work having given most ot their
time to the Work since May 1919
Mr Banks said the dedication of the
hospital was to be December 10 He then
compared the Boone County Hospital to
those of Audrain ami Callaway counties
the only other counties of the state to
avail themselves of the county hospital
law passed by the Slate Legislature in
The Boone County Hospital has been
completed at a cost of 190000 with 60

The Boone County Hospital is the only
one of the three that has an X ray ma
