Tokyo Talks May Bring Plan For Japanese Peace Treaty RV irmv M" uT/iiiTm.w?** . (A KK.) COUKJKR NEWS JOHN IVf. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON, June S. <AL') — Agreement between the State and Defense departments on plans for a Japanese peace settlement is ex- peeled to result from a strict of conferences in Tokyo. Secretary of Defense Johnson and the chairman of the Joint chiefs of staff, Gen. Omar Bradley, are scheduled to leave next weekend on * Pacific lour that will lake them in about 10 days to Gen. Douglas MacArthur's Japanese occupation headquarters. John poster Dulles, Republican adviser whom Secretary of state Acheson has asked to work on Japanese policy, also is plannluo to leave Washington for Tokyo about June 14 and will be there about the same time as Johnson. First liana View Johnson Is said authoritatively to be making the trip partly to find out for himself at first hand ex- Bcily what .MacArthur thinks about the treaty and related questions of Japanese security. He is thus assuming a direct responsibility which until recently he had delegated to former Army Undersecretary Tracy Vooriiees, a firm opponent oi any Japanese peace treaty In the near future. MacArthur's genera] views on the treaty project are well known. He feels that an occupation comes 'to the end of its usefulness after about five years, that the people turn against It and that anyway the Japanese have earned the to Independence by a peace settlement. Dulles Wants Settlement Dulles, for his part, is an adherent of some kind of peace settlement. But he is not necessarily wedded to whatever line of action may have been advocated In pasl state-defense parleys by former Assistant Secretary W. Walton Butter- ARMS Butterworth's recent assignment as ambassador to Stockholm removed him as completely from the tangled Japanese situation as • Voorhces' resignation had only ihort time before removed him. Feud May End This elimination of antagonistic personalities from a field of controversy is one of the reasons, along with the Tokyo conferences, why many officials now believe state and defense may end their nine-months- old feud in a month or two. Dulles has made a preliminary study of (he problem which lias apparently convinced him that it is extremely difficult to find a sails- factory way out and ihat the defense department Is right In being deeply concerned over security oues- tions. Aware of Demand* He is also aware of demands from Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines'for assurances of protection against a revivil of Japanese' militarism. There Is no question among top officials here — Johnson. Dulles or «ny others — that whatever the course taken American troops will have to remain in Japan for a long M S J 9, F HIS CLASS-Kobcri J.

N. C., and 1.870,000 were injured, as many as the population of Oregon.
