SHANTUNG DISPOSAL WILL
EMBROIL U.S. WITH lAPS
(Continued from Page One)
"The president," added the wit-
ness, "seemed to be about the only
one who did not think this was a pure
bluff, on the part of Japan."
Chinese delegates told him it was
on the advice of the United States
that the Chinese did not raise ques-
tions of extra territory, future
financial co-operation in China and
abrogation of the 20 or more "re-
gional understandings." The Ameri-
can government was fully "sympa-
thetic" with China's stand on these
subjects, Millard said, but thought it
might "befog the issue" if matters
not directly connected with the peace
settlements were introduced.
Secret Agreements
When the Shantung question arose,
President Wilson, Millard said he had
been informed, suggested it be left
for the League of Nations. Japan
objecting, revealed for the first time
the secret agreements by which the
Allies were to support the Shantung
claims.
On April 23, Millard continued,,
China submitted a compromise pro-
posal that she would consent to cede
German rights in Shantung to Ja-
pan if the other four members of the
council of five would agree to stand
in the position of "co-trustes" for
eventual return of the province to
China; that China would reimburse
Japan for her expense in taking Kiao-
Chow ;that Tsing-Tao should be made
an international port and that Japan
should promise definitely to return
Shantung within a specified time.
"If this issue doesn't lead to war
between the United States and Japan
within 10 years," said the witness,
"the ice at least will get so thin that
we won't know whether we can get
over or not." %
No Stable Attitude
Mr. Millard said he had been told
by both British and French officials
that a great difficulty in determining

investigation will follow," he said.
"We have certain information that I
might make public were it not that we
are afraid the men we are after would
immediately try to cover up.
"But to tell the truth we are not
going after anybody immediately-at
least not today. Of course the testi-
mony, we expect to take may give us
a lead in the first hour, but we are
mainly concerned at this moment with
feeling-our way-getting as much in-
formation about conditions as possi-
ble. So that I can say none of the
witnesses called for today have been
summoned to give information on any
specific case of profiteering.
"It is important that it be made
plain that the mere fact that a man
is subpeonaed for this hearing does not
mean there is any suggestion that his
own business is not above reproach in
the way it is managed. Many of the
people brought here will be entirely
friendly witnesses. We are sub-
peonaeing witnesses, so as to place
everybody on an equal footing.'
It became evident as soon as the in-
quiry started that the probers were
going direct to some of. the 'largest
purchasers in the local wholesale
market for their information.
