PERSISTENT MIGRANT rJX)KYO, Saturday (A.A.P.). A persistent Japanese stowaway called "Little Joe" was back in gaol today for the 13th time. This followed yet another thwarted attempt to live in America, United Press International reported. Hatsugi Tsuruhama, 33, has been trying to sneak into the United States for 16 years. For his efforts he has spent roughly a third of his life in prisons and detention camps in various countries. Tsuruhama was deported to Japan from the United States as an illegal immigrant this week. Tokyo police arrested him at the airport on charges of violating Japanese immigration laws. lit. W In MJL pull Era imp fDMfiM From our Own Correspondent LONDON, Saturday. Wealthy British publisher Gareth Powell, who is migrating to Australia, said this week he preferred Sydney to " Rlltf I 1!H1I!S search From our own correspondent JX)NDON, Saturday.

Mr Powell, 32, his wife and their two " children arrive in Sydney by air on June 1, under the $25-assisted passage scheme. He said, "Australia House has classified me as an 'eminently eligible emigrant.' I hope they don't repret it." He was referring to the trouble he caused in Britain two years ago when as managing director of Mayflower Books, he published "Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure." The company was taken to Court under the Obscene Publications Act, but by that time the book had sold thousands of copies. Mr Powell has some firm views about Australia. ing from their, traditional African ways to the culture of the Western world. However, he found that witch doctors were avaricious compared with their Western counterparts and were, on occasions, even cruel, chaining up their patients when they were net paid. Mr Powell . .

He became managing director of Mayflower Books when only 28, and soon after joined the New England Library Book Company, which runs Four Square. Signet and Mentor books, as managing director.

'Then I cut it again for the New Zealand market, and to get it past the Australian censors I cut it again. "I doubt if the author himself would have recognised the version Australians read." His meteoric rise has earned him not a few enemies in the gentlemanly world of British publishing. He said: "I don't pinch authors. I just offer them more money, evervbody does it." Mr Powell said that when he arrived in Sydney he would tackle the Far-East market. This is suggested by an English doctor, Stephen Black, who made a program for B.B.C. television after long and intensive studies of witch doctor practices in Nigeria. Dr Black found one Nigerian psychiatrist who claimed he was normally able to treat three out of five mentally sick patients successfully using witch doctor's methods, but only two out of five using Western methods. He found witch doctors were using drugs to treat mental illnesses before the turn of the century, while Western doctors' only began drug treatment 30 years ago. Dr Black claimed witch doctors were using hypnosis to treat other forms of mental illness, and that women with growths and apparently cancerous symptoms had been cured by a witch doctor's preparation, where Western X-ray treatment had failed. He believed a huge percentage of patients who went to witch doctors for treatment were suffering from psychosomatic illnesses, in many cases caused by the pressure of chang Expelled WASHINGTON, Saturday (A.A.P.- Reuter). The United States yesterday finally abandoned its search for a bug-filled satellite missing somewhere around Australia since February 15. A spokesman for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said a final search of a 10,000-square-mile area of New South Wales had turned up no sign of the spacecraft. Overdue When it came down the satellite was two months overdue in its return from space due to failure of a retroactive motor. Space officials have 'said there was no danger to humans as all life aboard the satellite was presumed dead and the strontium 85 it contained was only about half as radioactive as at the time of launching. T ONDON, Satur-V day (A.A.P.). Pretty Jean Verdall's wedding was more of a chaotic happening than the quiet wedding it started out to be.

I know there are private schools in Sydney, but they don't ride horses and play polo and, anyway, my kids won't be going to them." Mr Powell was expelled from school in Wales at the age of 15, and began work In Cove the Vicar said he had other marriages to perform.
