President Flies to South Korea Wh at Adds Up -to -to For Japanese By WILLIAM H. EWING Star-Bulletin Star-Bulletin Star-Bulletin Managing Editor TOKYO, June 18 After a week of observing tumultuous developments developments erupting from the present crisis in Japan, it is possible to draw five major conclusions. These are: 1 The drive" against the Kishi government and the American security treaty is directed from Moscow and Peiping. Its aim is to eliminate Japan as a bastion of western power in the Pacific. 2 There is a deep-seated deep-seated deep-seated aversion to war in Japan to a degree perhaps as in no other country which plays into the hands of the Communists, trying to defeat the mutual defense pact. 3 The Japanese people don't understand democracy. 4 The Japanese are nonetheless basically a stable people and the odds are that they will emerge stronger than before from the present crisis. 5 You can't do business with the Communists as though proof were needed. The Communists, expressing their policies through the political parties, the trade unions and the intellectuals as represented by the students and university professors, professors, have succeeded so far in only one aim that of preventing President Eisenhower's visit to Japan. . This is a dialectic victory and since the Communists set great store by such things, they no doubt are impressed impressed by what they have gained. ! The Western world, which depends less on a diet of propaganda for intellectual sustenance, may not be so impressed. You would have thought from some of the statements statements being made in Tokyo the past week from the top down that the heavens would fall if the Eisenhower visit were canceled. The heavens haven't fallen and, unless you heed the prophets of doom, little seems to have changed. You almost might think reading the Japanese newspapers, newspapers, that the Japanese are anarchists at heart. Just about everybody is against the government. Prime. Minister Kishi can do nothing right. Either his actions are wrong or his motives.
