Warning Includes China
TOKIO, Japan—Americans here have been told to leave the country without delay. The United States consulate issued the warning again today. The notice stated in part, “To American citizens in the Japanese Empire…withdraw from this area.”Americans living in China have been urged to leave that country as well. Claims made in the Japanese newspaper Asashi are that Japan is extending all means to avoid trouble with the United States to the point “…it will not be Japan’s fault if the arrow leaves the bow.” The president of Japan’s planning board, Lieutenant General Teiichi Suzuki, spoke out against British and American policies at a rally yesterday, stating “we must struggle against them at all cost.”Japanese newspapers report the populace is increasingly pessimistic toward the current discussions between Japan and America.
