id To Appeasement Of Japan
Urged By Professor Ehrmann



"Any appeasement of Japan by the
United States'at this'time would pre-
sent, no permanent soliftion to the
difficulties between the two coun-
tries," Prof. Howard M. Ehrmann of
the history department said in an in-
terview yesterday, "because any con-
cessions granted now would only lead
to'further demands by Japan."
Stressing the fact that the present
crisis has arisen as a consequence of
Japanese policy, he asserted that any
real appeasement of Japan would'
mean the abandonment of China, the
Dlutch East Indies, British posses-
sions in the Far 'East, and even the
Appeasement Possible
"Appeasement is possible," he said,
"when demands are small, are just,
and when the granting of them really
satisfies, but the vastness of the Todk--

Ivo nronfo al fG~rete Eat Asia

makes appeasement impossible."
He also said that the Japanese
answer to President Roosevelt's in-
quiry concerning troop concentra-
tions in French Indo-China is, as
was to be expected, an unsatisfac-
tory one, and leaves little hope that
the forthcoming reply to Cordell
Hull's note of Nov. 26 will offer a
basis for continued negotiation. "It
is highly improbable," Professor Ehr-
mann continued, "that Japan will
make any real concessions that can
result in a Japanese-American agree-
ment, for they are committed to a
policy which we cannot permit, the
domination of all eastern Asia."
Determined Stand Necessary #
With this in mind he asserted that
a determined stand by the ABCD,
powers, and the continuance of the
economic blockade by the United
States are essential. Although Pro-
fessor Ehrmann hesitated to say
where Japan should be stopped and
thought "that was a matter for the
government to decide." He did be-
lieve that "the present occupation of
Indo-China has improved greatly the
strategic position of Japan with re-
spect to Singapore, the Dutch East
Indies, and the Philippines," and con-
siders any further mnove into the
waters around Indo-China or into
Thailand a very serious threat to the
ABCD powers.
