Britain's Refusal To Close Burma Road
Draws Threat Of Japanese Action
TOKYO, July 9 (Tuesday).-Q)-It is quite possible that continued
refusal of Britain to close the Burma road to China may result in armed
Japanese action against the British crown colony of Hongkong, persons
close to the Japanese government declared today.
The war, navy and foreign ministries scheduled immediate emergehcy
conferences to discuss the British rejection yesterday of Japanese demands
that this last link between the Chinese Nationalist forces and the outside
world be shut off.
Reliable sources said the Japanese would take "drastic action" if the
British stand were not changed.
Foreign Minister Hachiro Arita yesterday told British Ambassador Sir
Robert Leslie Craigie -that his replys
was not satisfactory and urged him C
t advise London to reconsider. R (Ht Series

Nevertheless, a foreign office com-

to transmit to London Arita's urging
that Britain think the Burma issue
over. Informed persons said further
negotiations would seek a compro-

intention of receding from her posi-
British Reply Cited
The British reply was understood
to have said that Britain's commit-
ments to Burma and India prevented
her from closing their borders with
China since their trade would be
affected. As for Hongkong, it assert-
ed that already trade between that
colony and the Chinese hinterland
had been halted.
In informed quarters here belief,
was' expressed that Britain's order
for the removal of all British women
and children from the crown colony
of Hongkong indicated British deter-
mination to stand pat regardless of
Japan's insistent demands.
The press reported that Japan's
roving emissary, Naotake Sato, , has
"conferred with German Foreign Min-
ister Joachim Von Ribbentrop and
,had received indications that Ger-
many would back Japan in any ac-
tion against Britain in the Orient.
Japanese resentment also flared
against the United States for the ar-

Col. Peck Refutes
Tokio's Charges
(By the Associated Press)
SHANGHAI, July 8.-The blunt
report, "it's a lie," was given by Col.
Dewitt Peck, United States Marine
commander, to Japanese accusations
today that fifteen Japanese plain-
clothes gendarmes had been mal-
treated after their arrest by marines
in the American defense area of the
Shanghai International Settlement.
The gendarmes were arrested when
they were found in the area yester-
day in violation of an agreement not
to enter without American militay
authorities' consent.
A Japanese army spokesman, as-
serting the gendarmes were clubbed,
humiliated and otherwise mistreated,
forecast "a strong protest."
He denied any apology had been
given to United States authorities,
although admitting the Japanese
were at fault in not advising that
the gendarmes would be sent into

Joseph P. Martin Seen As
Republican National Head

Word spread through Republican
ranks tonight that Representative

House, would become Republican Na-

The future of religion, whether
Catholic, Protestant or Jew, lies more
with America than with any other
land, Dr, William W. Sweet, Profes-
sor of the History of American Chris-
tianity at the University of Chicago,
told students and guests of the Grad-
uate Study Program in American
Culture and Institutions last night in
his lecture on "Church and State in
the New World." -
"In recent years," he stated, "there
have been subtle forces at work tend-
ing to divert our attention from the
liberalism of the democratic ideal
toward the dogmatism of an external
authority. This is the remedy pro-
posed by some of our theologians,
most of whom are of European birth
or training, in order to combat the
control of religion by the authoritar-
ian states. But the remedy is as
dangerous as the disease. The demo-
crac'y of America today stands for
one great principle, and that is the
resistance to all tyrannical force
over the individuals' conscience."
"Our American theologians have
been too dependent upon European
leadership," he asserted, "and have
given practically no attenion to the
history of American religious
thought. For myself I am tired of
getting our theology out of somebody
else's experience."
From the beginning of colonization
to the present hour, Professor Sweet
said, America has been the haven of
perscuted religious groups. He point-
ed out that when the last published
Federal religious census was taken
in 1926 there were 213 independent
religious bodies in this country. It
is better, however, Professor Sweet

LONDON, July 9. (Tuesday)-
British sources today claimed a "suc-

keep from enemy hands France's
mightiest battleship, the 35,000-ton
Richelieu launched at Brest but still
not completed for service with the
There was no indication of the

The action against the Richelieu-
presumably sunk, seized or damag-
ed was said to have taken place
early yesterday.
A more detailed account of the
action was expected later today.
The operation was described as a
continuation of the seizure of French
warships stated last. week to pre-
vent fulfillrent of the armistice
pacts between France and Italy and
France and Germany. Under those
terms the French fleet would have
been assembled in French ports and
placed under control of Germany
and Italy.
Prime Minister Churchill has told
Commons he had po faith in axis
power promises that the ships would
not be used against Britain.
The Richelieu was the nearest
completed of France's newest class
of four mighty warships intended to
dwarf the 26,500-ton Dunkerque and
Strasbourg. Bth of them were 4am-
aged in last week's fight off the Al-
gerian coast.
Although the Richelieu had been
launched, it was understood her arm-
ament had not been completed.
Other ships of her class still in-
complete are the Clemenceau, Jean
Bart and Gascogne.
The two nearest completion, the
Richelieu and Jean Bart, were re-
ported in German hands after the
