LONDON IMPRESSION Allies Not In Mood To Argue With Beaten Enemy N.Z. Press Association—Copyright Rec. 10.30 a.m. LONDON, Aug. 13. Official circles in London state that they have no knowledge of any time limit fixed for the Japanese surrender. The Allies will not allow the situation to drift. "Whitehall does not regard the delay in the Japanese reply to the Allied demands as having sinister implications," says the Press Association diplomatic correspondent. "Japan, by acceptance of the Potsdam Declaration, admitted defeat and she is trying to save face for the Emperor. She may even try to twist but the Allies are in no mood for argument with a beaten enemy. There is no doubt in London that the Allies have said their last word on the Emperor's position. The fact that the Japanese have not yet accepted the decision that the Emperor must act under orders from the Supreme Commander is evidence of the bitterness of the pill they must swallow. The Japanese Government knows that while they talk the huge air and sea forces surrounding them, armed with the most powerful weapons, are ready to deliver devastating blows. Their alternative to surrender is destruction."
