NEW YORK, Aug. 14.-(AP)
—The Domei news agency said today in a Tokyo broadcast recorded by the FCC that "there probably will be something important"at 9 o'clock tonight (8 a. m. Eastern War Time).
At the same time, however, FCC reported, another Domei transmitter said there would be "something important at 10p.m.(9a.m.EWT.)
Only a short time earlier, however, Tokyo had reported that the Japanese cabinet had been in continuous session "until late Monday night" and indicated that the reply to the Allied unconditional surrender demand probably would be available "as soon as legal procedures are completed."
The Associated Press listening post in New York reported that the Tokyo Domei Morse stations -- Jup and Jud - which sent the "flash" – remained "on call."
