JAPAN CAUSES HITCH IN PLANS TOKIO NOT WILLING TO DISCUSS FAR EAST QUESTIONS AT PRO POSED CONFERENCE, SETBACK DISARMAMENT NIPPONESE FEAR DISSENSION WILL FOLLOW IF PACIFIC PROBLEM IS TAKEN UP. Westers Xewspaper Union News Service.) Washington, July 15. Japan is ready to enter the disarmament con ference, but withholds assent to an un- restricted discussion of Far Eastern questions as a part of it. The viewpoint of the American gov eminent is that a solution of the Far Eastern question is a necessary ac companiment to any disarmament pro gram. Thus develops the first hitch If a hitch it turns out to be in Presi dent Harding's plan to remove the causes for heavy armaments and then reduce the armaments themselves. American officials, however, are op timistic tlmt a way will be found for a satisfactory conference to which Japan will be a party and for a pro gram of armament reduction accepta ble to all. Tlie Japanese reply to the prelim inary question of whether she would receive an invitation to such a con ference came to the State Department through the American embassy at To kio. Its text was not made public and department officials declined to reveal its contents except to say that it expressed approval of the disarma ment discussion but did not agree to a consideration of Pacific problems. During the day, however, it became known that the attitude of the Japan ese government was known to the gov ernment here. This attitude is that the disarmament question is a vast one in itself, and that if other ques tions are introduced into the field of discussion the conference may be so broadened as to endanger its success. Japanese officials are said to feel this to be particularly true if the ques tions so introduced are to affect the delicate balance of diplomatic rela tions in the Orient. There is manifest in Tokio a belief that such a debate might open up a Pandora's box of troublesome diplo matic intricacies, which would set for Mr. Harding's conference a task of re adjustment even greater than that at tempted by the peace conference at Versailles. The alternative, in the belief of Jap anese statesmen, would be to agree beforehand on exactly what questions will form the subject matter of the discussions. To this is opposed the opinion of American officials that if the nations first agreed to come into the confer ence, whatever limitations appeared advisable could be fixed by general assent afterward. -Smoking Cars for Women.
