State department officials said today that it would be difficult for President Roosevelt to refrain from invoking the American neutrality act should Japan for mally declare war on China. This, measure prevents ship ments of war supplies to both countries whenever the Presi dent decides a state of war ex ists. According to some observ ers, who report that Japan has greater facilities than China for making munitions, invocation of the act would aid the invaders. Officials studying the far eastern conditions said that they were encouraged by the house refusal to consider the Ludlow war referendum proposal, which President Roosevelt declared "would cripple any President in his conduct of our foreign rela tions." s' ;- Leaders in the house said the administration's foreign policy had been strengthened by the 209 to 188 vote and at the same time appeared well for any new naval construction which might be recommended by the Presi dent.

Piloted by Nick Mamer, who had flown more than 1,000,000 miles without injuring a pas senger, the plane went into a tailspin and plunged nose-first into a small cleannsr. The lm- - pact with the frozen ground snapped the nose from the rest of the craft.
