Japanese Position on Nonni Riv-

Enemy Forces.
TOKIO, Nov;16.--(P)-A dispatch
from Harbin today said Gen. Mah
Chan Shan at daybreak launched
an attack on the Japanese position-
at Tahsing, on the Nonni River.
Severe fighting was in progress, the
dispatch said.' .
The Japanese War, Office indi-
cated its readiness to go into action
in the Nonni area if compelled.
Gen. Mah, it was said, is plan-
ning a general offensive against
the Japanese with the support of
30,000 troops of Chang Hsueh Liang,
deposed governor of Manchuria,
n o w concentrated at Chinchow.
This,-drive, the War Office declared,
is set to take place before Japanese
reinforcements arrive at Mukden
Gen Honjo, Japan's Manchurian
commander, told t h e Associated
Press Monday that if a major con-
flict develops in the Nonni area he
may push his line as far north as
Tsitsihar, Chinese stronghold.
Asserting chaos would result if
Japan evacuated, he said the next
move depended on Gen. Mah Chan
Shan. There is no direct proof
that Russia is helping Gen. Mah,
Gen. Honjo said, but there is "much
reliable evidence" that indirect aid
is being furnished.
The Council of the League of
Nations, meeting in Paris on the
day when Japan's evacuation was
to have been completed, pressed
peace negotiations in private after
a brief public session. There- was
