F.R. SEES NO DANGER OF U.S.-JAPANESE WAR
Washington, Feb. 12 (AP) –
President Roosevelt sees no danger of an American-Japanese war, he told his Tuesday press conference with an assertion that even if such a war did come to pass it would not reduce American aid to Britain. Asked for elaboration, Mr. Roosevelt rephrased the original question asked him to say that if the United States were forced into war in the Pacific, it would not have to curtail aid to Britain.
