Title

JAPAN'S WORLD STATUS UNHURT BY EARTHQUAKE: Will Proceed to Rule Far East, Belief

Description

This article from the Chicago Tribune discusses the Great Kanto Earthquake--the deadliest earthquake in Japan's history--that devatated Tokyo and Yokohama on 1 September 1923 and how Japan’s status as a nation will be affected by the disaster.

The author, Arthur Sears Henning, believed that Japan would bounce back relatively quickly from its economic losses as it rebuilt. The article goes on to assess how relations between the U.S. and Japan would be affected following the relief efforts by the U.S. Navy in helping the people of Japan during and following the earthquake. Sears believed that if Japan were to go to war, it wouldn’t be deterred in the slightest by the earthquake and rebuilding efforts, as reconstruction would only cost about 2% of Japan’s total wealth.
