By EUGENE LEVIN TOKYO (AP) - A growing debate in Japan ever its relations with the United States and Red China is bringing forth the first vague hint bat the general Japanese attitude toward nuclear arms may be changing.

For years to come, the mili tary buildup is likely to be a nonnuclear one. Japanese oppo sition to atomic bombs goei deep. The idea of a rearmet Japan, even without nuclear weapons', is enough to make other Asian nations shiver — and Japanese officials know this. * * « It all started with debate over the security treaty which gives the United States the right to maintain bases in Japan while pledging to help defend the Japanese. The treaty was revised in 1960 amidst bitter rioting that forced President Dwight D. Eisenhower to cancel a scheduled trip to Japan. Either country can request another revision after 1970. The Japanese Socialist party, which often echoes a pro-Peking line, has long waged a campaign to scrap the treaty. The Socialists cite the Viet Nam war as a reason for getting rid of American bases in Japan. They say this country could find itself involved in an Asian war against its will. The Viet Nam war has been one reason for the early debate on the treaty revision. Prim Minister Eisaku Sato's strategy also may be responsible. Some observers think he has deliber ately plunged into the debate saying the treaty should remain unchanged, in an attempt to sway public opinion. It is sail that he does not want to wai until the last minute — 1970 — and find himself in the midst ol new riots. * * * : Some government supporters on the right agree with the Socialists that Japan should try to end its dependence on American military strength. But there is a difference. The Socialists want a defenseless Japan that trusts in the good will of its neighbors. The conservatives want a Japanese military buildup that would jermit this country to defend tself.
