No leader of any of the Unitet Nations lias darej to predict that it will, and the reason is quilt simple. Our statesmen 'realize now that the war lords of "Japan are not alone to blame for Japan's atrocious record of plunder, slaughter, rape and 'cruelty. Our leaders know the responsibility must fall also upon the overwhelming majority of the Ja'panese people themselves, and that we shall still have tens of mllrtons of these people living in the same'world with us after the war. In recent. years Japan has delib- reported to be ready to go into business, for himself tome place within the state. The outgoing governor is reported to have turned down a'federal job .in Washington, D.
