Arkansas HGNKONG, (UPI — Japan Is "Jlijutsu-ing" her way into becoming ill tile very near future nil important influence in tlic Par East, in tlie opinion of Dr. Peter Husso, Australian nutliorlly on Japan and cmierly lecturer at the Imperial University of Tokyo. '•The characters which form 'ju- Ijjsu' have more than merely a inyslcnl Implication." Dr. Kusso explains. "Literally they mean 'the gentle art,' whereby one does not natch strength, but wins by yielding strength—in oilier words, pli- iney." That, Dr.'said, explains Ihc pre.sent Japanese docile obedience Lo every directive and form of control which springs from allied headquarters. He said the complete .subservience, of the Japanese leaving the occupation authorities bewildered. They cannot understand the Japanese philosophy which runs something like this: lltnv to Strength 'We arc prepared to do everything you want us to do because you are undoubtedly right, (.stronger); oiir emperor lias publicly shed his divinity and declared himself a human being; we have wholeheartedly adopted the constitution you drafted for us and Become democratic; as you do not like Communism, neither <lo we; we have followed your instructions MIAHIl.

It wet the beds of just-changed babie.s. It forced Mrs. Estelle Brady's j new furnilure out to the sidewalk three times in one day. It made families pack up in the middle of the night and move to hotels. Five days after the delude started, a score of theories have been advanced and rejected. They thought the plaster was "sweating" —until more water came out than had been used to make the plaster. They thought recent heavy rains had seeped into the walls and were forcing (.heir way through. But, when they dug into a spot where water had, spouled, all' was dry. There was a suspicion that somebody was trying to gel rid of somebody else. "But we're all new and so far we like each other," Mrs. lirady said. "We even like the landlord and he likes us." Insurance Adjuster \v c. Burgess said he went to the building yesterday on what he thought ;\as a routine clalni that \vould lake ten minutes to clear up, "I stayed two and a half hours," he reported. "Never saw anything like it. H couldn'1. be any wetter if somebody had taken a fire hose in there.
