Japanese Rearmament There are significant parallels in the relationship of Japan and Germany to' the United States. Japanese Foreign Minister Shigemitsu's recent visit to this country points up those parallels. Both were enemies of the United States in World War II. Our soldiers occupied both in the years after the war. And in the heat of war's bitterness, we vowed that neither should ever become a military power again. But the Cold War vastly altered the prospects for free world security, and we found ourselves asking both Germany and Japan to rearm to help defend their own soil and all free peoples. Germany looms as a bulwark of Western defense in Europe, and Japan is critically placed for the protection of the Pacific. German rearmament now has been authorized and is gradually moving toward fulfillment. At the same time West Germany has been taken into NATO as a full partner, and the Germans have regained their political freedom. Here the story in Japan is different. The rearmament issue has been the subject of much dispute. Ardent antimili- tarists and neutralists have tangled with those who believe that in the circumstances of the Cold War Japan must make a military contribution to the free world's safety. The problem appears to have been complicated by the official American attitude toward Japan. Though we took the initiative in shaping a Japanese peace treaty, we evidently have managed to convey to the Japanese people the notion that we view them as definitely junior partners in any military-political relationship. Shigemitsu's visit was directly concerned with these matters. But though his conferences with U.S. officials were conducted in a frank and friendly atmosphere, they produced no specific agreement on rearmament or other key questions. The Japanese government would like American troops stationed in the islands to withdraw by perhaps 1953. In return, ShigemHsu suggests Japan would raise an army of 200,000 by 1962 to hold this vital territory. The United States envisages a Japanese army of some 350,000, which it estimates might take six years to build up. It agrees that U.S. forces should pull out, but would stretch this withdrawal over the whole build-up period. Shigemitsu asked also about the future of nearly 600 Japanese still held as war criminals. The government seeks their full release. We wish to take up each case individually, and have promised him no more than to submit the issue to "continuous and urgent examination." Obviously the prisoner question is symbolic in Japanese minds of » kind of "conqueror 1 *, bondage" thai they »r« anxious to ihakt off, Germany should provide a lesson, tf we want Japan, as Germany, to accept the full responsibilities of military partnership in the defense of free men, we must then treat the Japanese as an important, independent people. With responsibility must go privilege, and » sense of dignity. The matter of rearmament doubtless is susceptible of solution if we approach Japan in the true spirit of partnership. If it makes that clear, Shigemitsu's voyage to America Will have done a highly useful service. Misguided Economy Sen. George Malone, Nevada Repu- lican, says he thinks we ought to cut down on Voice of America -propaganda expenditures because from what he has seen of Russia its people aren't likely to revolt against, the Communist regime. . It has never been an assumption of our propaganda specialists that the Soviet Union was ready for rebellion. In fact, in our broadcasts and other propaganda efforts not only to Russia but to other Red countries, we have specifically avoided any attempt to incite revolt. The theory has been that the Red army's control—or its nearness—would foredoom such an uprising to futile bloodshed. But that does not mean it is futile to try to spread the truth. In some future time the circumstances of power in Communist lands may alter. If and when that happens, those people who are armed with the truth will be better equipped to strike for freedom. It is our sensible task | to 'help arm them for that moment, no matter how distant it may seem to Senior Malone or anybody else. VIEWS OF OTHERS Nudge for Slow Pokes Newest highway patrol campaign IB aimed at speeding up slow drivers. The announcement said patrolmen had been instructed to make arrests only in aggravated cases, but that indicates arrest is possible for just poking along, as well as for speeding. The motorist who drives at a much slower speed than the average probably thinks that he to a very safe driver. He may be, if he has the highway to himself, but that seldom is the case. When there are other motorists on the road, as there usually are, the excessively slow driver becomes a traffic menace. Not so many years ago, drivers shuddered at the thought of suddrtenly overtaking a mule and wagon at dusk, on a blind curve, or just beyond the crest of a hill. That sort of hazard now is rare. But a slow moving motor vehicle creates some of the same hazards, with another one added. Nobody has much reason to become angry with a wagon-driver, for his top speed was slow at best, compared with that of a car. But the slow motor vehicle driver usually can go faster than he does, so that his deliberate choice of a slow speed can be exasperating. As the new instructions to patrolmen point out, excessively slow drivers are a danger to people in a hurry because they affect the tempera of persons driving at normal speed, tempting them to pass in dangerous situations. This explanation of the need for speeding up a bit .should be helpful, when" passed on to slow drivers. Moat of them are careful people, not given to recklessness, and they probably will be glad enough to drive faster once they can get used to the Idea that it might be safer.—Lumberton (N.C.) Robesonian. SO THEY SAY I've got two strikes on me, but I'm still a long way from being out. — Indians' Vic Wertz, stricken with polio. We (U. S.) must pray for peace, but we must be prepared for attack. We must never strike the first blow. But we must be able to strike the last. — Evangelist Billy Graham on the possibility of war. More and more as automation takes over from human labor, the role of the mind, what it knows and how it decides, will become even more critically important. — Jacob k. Javits, attorney genera] of New York. * , * * Baseball holds drama for me beyond any other sport. — Alice Marble, onetime U. S. and Wimbledon tennis champ. # * * The (Chinese) Nationalists continue to improve their installations and general state of readiness; our (U. S.) forces continue to deploy and train to meet any situation that seems probable. — Vice Adm. Alfred M. Pride, commander of U. S. 7th Fleet in Formosan waters. The Soviet secret service (spy system) is with us to stay and denunciation of it will luve as little effect on events as cursing bad weather. — E. H. Cookridge, former BritWi secret The Real Trial By Fire Peter Edson's Washington Column — Japanese Mission Missed Out On Most of Its Urgent Wants WASHINGTON - (NEA) — In spite of all the polite expressions of good will on both sides, • the talks between U. S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu didn't solve every outstanding problem. The conference was held without too much American confidence that the present Japanese government is very stable. Any long- range assurances on future Japanese policy or actions are therefore not very binding. It was significant that one member of the Slgemitsu mission was Nobusuke Kishi, Now Secretary General of the Democratic party, he is a leader in the movement to unite with the Liberals. A strong Conservative coalition of this kind would have a clear majority in Japan's 467-m ember House of Representatives and 250- member House of Councillors. Kishi himself is considered a likely future Foreign Minister or even Prime Minister. His views are therefore of considerable importance to America. The announced agreement for future consideration of progressive withdrawals of American forces from Japan will sound good to the Japanese people. But it doesn't tell the whole story, . Secretary General Kishi is known to believe that while Japan can build up her army over the next six years or so, the United States should continue to furnish the air and naval defense of Japan. In spite of this, the Shigemitsu mission made its pitch that the United States should turn over to Japan all civil government control' of Okinawa. They got no encouragement on this, for the simple reason that this Island bastion' 'ie- tween Formosa and Japan is the csnter of U. S. Air Defense of the Far East. Japan's budget this year is around 100 billion yen. or 28 billion dollars. Of this less than tour billion goes for defense. The Japanese say they can't spend more for defense till they get back more of their old foreign trade. This offers the backdoor approach to another question. Members of the Japanese delegation let it be known in Washington that they wish to resume trade with China. The reason given is that there is now much smuggling between the two countries. The Japanese wish to substitute a legitimized trade, particularly in the import of raw materials like coal and iron, of which Japan has none. The Japanese said they would not export strategic materials and they had no desire to build up this trade to prewar levels, when China was Japan's best customer. In spite of these assurances, the. Japanese got no indication In Washington that such a development would be approved. Considerable clandestine negotiating between Tokyo and Peking governments has been going on for some time. An indication of how far the Japanese want to go in winning back their old superiority in the Far East was given informally in respect to the Korea question. The Japanese were all In favor of reuniting Korea. But in the interest of restoring peace and stability in this area, one o' the mission members d the temerity to suggest that the United State.' should back someone else than Syngman Rhee as President 01 Korea—because he was so anti- Japanese ' This is taken as typical of the whole approach of the Japanese missiqn. They want a lot more than they got out of the Washington talks with Dulles, These are things not even mentioned In the official conference communique. It is believed that the Japanese will be back again, asking for more of what they didn't'get this time, until they have complete independence and a free hand to do as they please in Asia once more.

Hollywood. Cornel Wilde shelves the romantics for the role of a cheap (Mignter with a speech impediment — stammering — in "Storm Fear," and he's beaming: "I'm not the lovely hero—I'm * crumb." It's his own movie, directed by himself, with Dan Duryea and Jean Wallace.

Now audiences are interested in people as people instead of as heroes and villains. It isn't an arty film but it's emotional rather than physical violence." HE'S JUST AS HAPPT about "Tambourine," too. He says: "It's one of the three best roles I've ever had." The other two: "A Song to Remember," and "The Greatest Show on Earth."

West took the rest of the tricks with the ace of clubs, the ten of diamonds and the king of spades South made only six tricks, and the doubled penalty was therefore 1100 points. If West had failed to double, East could not have acted, and South would have gotten away with a loss of only 400 points at most. .West doubled because neither opponent had made a really strong bid at any stage. Evidently this 1 was the sort of game contract that! i would be fulfilled if South got i reasonably good breaks. \Vestj knew, however, that the breaks were actually horrible. West had all of the spades, and he knew that his partner must have all of the trumps. The double was based on the , knowledge that South was going to run into great trouble on a hand that needed good breaks for success. the Doctor Says — Written for NEA Service By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Mrs. M". and many others have asked for another discussion of hardening of the arteries and what can be done for this condition which is diagnosed so frequently, I particularly in the later years. | In discussing it briefly, I should j like readers to know that arterio-j sclerosis is the medical term which means the same thing. There is also a condition known as atherosclerosis, which is closely related, and involves deposits in the walls of the arteries of fatty-like substances rather than calcium which is the principal chemical involved in arteriosclerosis. Typical hardening of the arteries is the result of slow deposts of calcum n the walls of these blood vessels. The deposts are not even and some parts of the blood vessel walls will have more calcium in them than others. However, these calcium deposits make the. walls of the arteries gradually harder, stlffer, and more brittle. Until a great deal of calcium has been deposited, however, the blood vessels remain reasonably elastic and serious difficulties do not arise. I What causes this deposit of calcium and the simultaneous degeneration of the walls of the arteries? Why do some people develop hardened arteries so much earlier in life than others? Such questions are hard to answer. Certainly the tendency to develop arteriosclerosis early in life runs in some families more than in others. Also, the wear and tear to which arteries are subjected during life probably plays a part in the speed with which arteriosclerosis develops. Infections, disturbances of hormone secretion, overeating, and kidney disease, probably also are concerned with the development of this process. Probably eventually (he cause will be traced to changes In the internal chemistry, perhaps brought about by alterations in the hormones. Since arthei'losclerosls is not really a disease, but appears to be the result of many factors. Including thote inherited >i well »i those encountered during life, the symptoms are not alike' in all people. Symptoms may come from local disturbance of circulation in different parts of the body, depending on which arteries are most seriously affected. Thus, in the heart, the symptoms may be those of angina pectoris, in the brain apoplexy, and in the legs cramp-like pains. The treatment of arteriosclerosis depends on which arteries are most seriously involved. Special diets as so far devised probably have little effect on the underlying process. For this reason, there is a great deal of individual variation in treatment and general rules cannot be outlined. The outloolc for life and health, varies in the same way. In other words, arterlosclerotic blood vessels If located in less vulnerable spots need not Interfere with lite or health for many years {severe hardening of the arteries in a vital location can be serious.

South next took the ace of spades, ruffed a spade in dummy, rufied a club in his hand, and ruffed another spade in dummy. East overruffed and returned the deuce of hearts. Naturally South put up the ace of hearts, never dreaming that he could win the trick with one of the small trumps. When West discarded a club, South knew he was in for it.
