Baron Tanaka died September 29.
1929. a few weeks after the fall of
his cabinet, his premiership having
lasted about two years.
This department is supposed to
deal only with the living, but breaks
pace today to note the possibly his
toric significance of the baron and
his document— and the life story of
the suave little man who died of
high blood pressure, at 96. after
many years of deep absorption in
"sword romance.” the Japanese
equivalent of the blood and thunder
pulp thrillers of our country.
History may give him a nod
In view mt the fact that his d•co

ty as a peel-player railing his
shets. The Japanese repeatedly
haw deaeaaced it as a fergery.
Whatever it was. it jumped the
deck and leid "the shape et
things to came.”
The first reference to the docu
ment in this country, so far as this
reporter could discover, was in pub
lished quotations from the Russian
newspaper. Pravda. of November S,
1831. Pravda did not reveal how it
had obtained its copy of the "Me
morial.” but it flared it out as “a
startling revelation of the Japanese
carefully prepared plan for world
“Japan's aggressive tendencies
will not end m China.” said the
Pravda article. "She has designs
on the Philippines, the Malayan ar
chipelago. Guam. Tahiti, Samoa and
Australia. It presages a fight fbr a
new division of the world, for it
is inseparably linked with conflict
among imperialist nations for con
trol of the Pacific.”
The newspaper then quoted from
the document:
"If we intend t* gain control
over China, we mast first crash
the Called States. To rapture
China, we mast also crash Man
churia aad Mongolia. In order
to conquer the world, we most
test conquer China. If we suc
ceed in conquering China, the
rest of the Asiatic countries and
the South Sea countries will
fear as and surrender to ns."
For understandable reasons, the
Pravda story got scant attention in
the Ameri
Press Discredited can press,
Tanaka Memorial; in view of
Japs March On / man* Previ*
ous propa
ganda stories issuing from this
source and was. for the most part
editorially dismissed as an effort to
"cause dissension among friendly
capitalistic nations."
But. American correspondents,
digging into the story in the Far
East, discovered that, in 1929. the
"Memorial" had been examined by
members of the American Council
of the Institute of Pacific Relations,
in Mukden. It was submitted to
them by members of the entourage
of the Chinese Marshal Chang
Hsueh-liang. One of this delegation
was reported to have said:
“We pledge the fall authen
ticity of this document and we
plead with you to understand
that Japan has begun a pro
gram of world aggression which
inevitably must involve the
United States.”
So far as we can learn, news of
this incident was not published in
this country until after the Pravda
story. This, however, is not cer
tain. It may have appeared in some
American newspapers. This writer
remembers a long article in a Brit
ish newspaper of five or six years
ago, the Manchester guardian, if
memory serves, in which was cited
documentary evidence of the validity
of the document and pleaded for a re
shaping of British policy in the Far
East and the strengthening of the
naval base at Singapore.
On April 23, 1940, Rear Ad
miral J. K. Taussig, retired, ap
peared before the senate com
mittee on naval affairs and in
sisted on the validity of the Ta
naka Memorial. He begged for
a consideration of Japanese re
lations in this light, but the
navy, however, repudiated his
testimony. Pierre Van Paassen,
in his recently published book,
“This Day Alone,” reviews the
history of the document, defends
its authenticity and launches in
dignation against Uie civilised
world for failing to heed it.

Japs Have Exceeded
Germans in Inflicting
A aval Losses ... IT ill
ISazis Use Mass Plane
Attacks on British Fleet?
iBell Syndicate—WM Service.)
WASHINGTON —Naturally there
was grim satisfaction in Berlin,
especially at the offices of the ad
miralty. over the naval losses suf
fered by the United States and Brit
ain in the actions at Pearl Harbor
and near Singapore. But there must
have been also dismay over what
must have seemed lost opportuni
ties to the German admirals.
For the Germans have been un
able to do nearly as much damage
to the British navy as have the
Japs to the British and U. S. com
bined fleets. In a few days the
Japs have done more to whittle
down the superiority of the U. S.
British fleets than the Germans
have done in more than two years'
At the outset of the war, it will
be remembered, a German sub
managed to get inside Scapa Flow
and sank the British battleship Roy
al Oak. This was an old battle
ship, but a battle wagon is a battle
wagon when it comes to a real sea
battle. Within a tew weeks the
Germans sank one of Britain’s
crack aircraft carriers.
That was quite a start on the
whittling down process, always re
membering that whatever may have
been the ideas of the German army,
the plan of the navy was to get
the British fleet down to a size
which would justify the risk of a
major naval battle. This is not a
new idea. It has been told in these
dispatches before, right after the
bombing of the Schamhorst and the
Gneisenau by the R.A.F. at Brest
was claimed by the British to have j
put those old battleships out of com
mission for the remainder of the
The idea is based on several talks
the writer had with high German
naval officers several years prior
to the outbreak of this w'ar. The
Germans claimed, and with some
logic, that their ships would shoot
better than the British, not because
their marksmen were any better,
man for man, but because their op
tical glass was better.
Vital in Big Battle
In a big battle between fleets, of
course, this is vital, since the dis
tance between them normally would
be such as to make personal marks
manship almost unimportant. The
men working the guns probably nev
er see the ships they are trying to
Moreover this German brag about j
their better optical glass seems to
have been justified both at Jutland
and Dogger Bank in the last war.
However, since those earlier suc
cesses—the Royal Oak and the air
craft carrier — the Germans have
paid virtually ship for ship for their
attempted whittling down of the
British fleet. In the case of the
Hood and the Bismarck the Germans
suffered a distinct loss. The Hood
was a battle cruiser, not a battle
ship, and was a bit on the old side,
whereas the Bismarck was beyond
doubt as she demonstrated in her
last fight, a stronger battleship than
any single ship in the British fleet.
Naval experts admit now that she
was better, and therefore the Tir
pitz is probably better, than even
the latest U. S. battleship, the North
What the Germans have been
building meanwhile is not known.
But the British have been busy,
and so has the United States.

Did the Nazis
Miss a Bet?
What the German admiralty is
really sick about since the Japanese
destruction of U. S. and British cap
ital ships at the outbreak of the Pa
cific war, is that they did not at
tempt the same sort of air blitz on
the British navy, before the British
admiralty learned its first bitter les
son at Scapa Flow.
They must be thinking, that if in
stead of sending one Nazi U-boat on
a "suicide” raid into Scapa Flow—
the one which sank the Royal Oak
and escaped—they had sent several
subs and several hundred bombers,
they might have so smashed the
British grand fleet that they could
have risked a big sea battle in that
first winter of the war.
Interesting in this connection is
the belief by experts here that the
Japanese naval operations in the
Pacific were planned by the Ger
mans. Indeed our experts believe
the planes which did so much dam
age at Pearl Harbor and Hickam
field were not Japanese planes at
all. but four Nazi bomber planes.
Further, it is not believed these big
planes were brought by carrier, as
has been generally assumed, but
that they were flown from the Mar
shall islands.
But naval knowledge has in
creased enormously in the last little
while. It was the argument of the
old admirals, in our navy and the
British particularly, that battleships
could not be sunk by airplanes. We
know now that it is easier, as a
matter of fact, to sink a battleship
by airplanes than by gunfire!

she will win this one.
One night not so long ago Mickey
Rooney was called to the telephone.
It was Carmen Miranda — she’d
heard that he was going to do an
impersonation of her in “Babes on

would be a good one, she arranged
to coach him, and the result is the
very funny burlesque of her that he
does in the picture.
Cary Grant's main idea, when he
finished working in “Suspicion,”
with Joan Fontaine, was to catch
up on sleep. Said he hadn’t had a

started work in “My Favorite

picion” was his fifth picture in a
row without a good long vacation.
Maybe all those extra-curricular

just rumors.
Joan Blaine, who soon starts
doubling between two air serials for
