SHANGHAI, Oct. 17.-(I)-The Ja-
panese Navy, with its forces smashing
up the Yangtze River within 75 river
miles of Hankow, warned vessels of
neutral' powers tonight to move up-
river from the Chinese military capi-
The warning was contained in an
official communique which said the
Japanese zone of naval operations
now was nearing Hankow.
The navy also urged third powers
to prevent Chinese forces from using
foreign-owned buildings to prevent
damage by bombing.
The Chinese have built a boom
above Shihweiyao, which the Ja-
panese captured yesterday. Shihwei-
yao is 75 miles from hankow by river,
60 by air. The new boom is the next
Although more than 1,000 mines
have been removed from the river, it
was reported that many remain, cre-

were closirig in on Hankow from three
directions--from Yangsin, 90 miles
southeast of Hankow, and from the
iortheast and east by river.

to smash through and cut the Ian-
kow-Canton railway in the vicinity of
Siennng, 50 miles south of Hankow.

This statement was made by Steve
Gadler, pale young consulting engi-
neer from St. Paul, who said the con-

In addition, he said, it was com-
monly understood that, on orders
from Gov. Elmer Benson, Farmer-
Laborite, the c'onvention was to take'
no action in opposition to Communist
activties. Repeatedly he linked Ben-
son's name with those of communist
leaders, asserting that after his elec-
tion "it was not long" until "certain
well-known communists" became pro-
minent in state and Farmer-Labor
party affairs. He said, however, he
had no information that Benson was'

Army Bomber Reported
Down In West Virginia
JACKSON'S MILL, W. Va., Oct. 17.
-(P)-C. H. Hartley, state Four-H
Club leader, reported tonight a U.S.
Army bomber with 15 officers and
men aboard was forced down. by en-
gine trouble here late today.
Hartley said the bomber was in
charge of Lt. Trueedell and Lt. A. Y.
Snell, of Mitchell Field, N.Y., and was
enroute from maneuvers at Fort
Bragg, S.C., to Selfridge Field, Mich.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 17.-UP)-His-
tory is repeating itself in President
Roosevelt's new armament program.
There is a close parallel between'
the Roosevelt 1938-39 preparedness
policy and that which President Wil-
son inaugurated in 1915-16, both as
regards the tense world situation it
is being framed to meet and appre-
hension as to how that situation may
affect the United States.
Now, as then, it is possible German
political and economic aggression in
Latin-America, that spurs the Wash-
ington Government to look to its state
of readiness to resist by force if 'need
be. But the factors impelling the
present decision are somewhat differ-
It was the possibility of a stalemate
ending of the European war, and of a
German-Japanese postwar drive to
secure footholds in Latin-America,
that influenced President Wilson to
embark in 1915-16 on the five-year,
billion-dollar expansion program for
the Army tiand Navy. Expectation
that this country might be drawn into
the European conflict, as it was with-
in a year, was not a prime motivation.
Armed Troop Moves U.S.
Now an armed truce in Europe, an
enormously strengthened Germany,
and the implications that the Berlin-
Rome-Tokyo Accord might have in
future as a threat to Pan-American
isolation have stirred Uncle Sam to
see that his powder is not only dry but
President Wilson reversed a life-
long advocacy of moderate arma-
ments to propose the huge prepared-
ness program of 1915-16. President
Roosevelt, who shared, as assistant
Naval Secretary, in the planning and
execution of that record peace-time
national defensive development, has
npr such about-face to make. Proposals
he will make to Congress in January
for armament increases will be piled
on top of those already undertaken
at his request to bring the first line
of defense, the Navy, actually up to
the strength called for by the 1916
preparedness slogan, "A Navy Second
