The attached Literary Digest article from 1935 concerns the Washington Naval Treaty and the pre-World War II diplomatic efforts to curb the expansion of the world's preëminent naval powers:

"The first successful attempt in world history to limit armaments was marked for the scrap-heap on December 31, 1936, when Hirosi Saito, the slim and smiling Japanese Ambassador to the United States, bowed himself into the State Department building in Washington last Saturday and handed to Secretary Cordell Hull a document that the world has expecting for many months - Japan's formal denunciation of the Washington Naval Treaty."
