MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27,19!« . Bi/rnravn.T.E fAKK.I COTTRWH PAGE SEVEN with BILLY GRAHAM By George Burnham , (ChatUnoofi New«-Fre« Pm« Writer) TOKYO — General MacArthur conquered Tokyo before he got here, but Billy Graham had to wait until after he ar- 1 rived. Different methods were employed. MacArthur used! bullets and Billy used a Bible. History will record which of; the two methods produced lasting results. Every major meeting held by . Billy set records lor the .Protestant history of Japan. Residents said few men have gripped the imaginations of the Japanese people as has the American evangelist. Here Is a typaloal example o! one day after addressing the larg- esl group of pastors ever to gather In Japan. Billy called on Prime Minister Hatoyama at noon. THE JAPANESE Diet, similar to the U. 8. Congress, delayed the customary opening thirty minutes to make the visit possible. Billy told the Prime Minister how Christ had changed his life at age 17 and then outlined the Bible formula for world and individual peace. — Hatoyama,' who suffers paralysis of the legs and uses a cane like the late President Roosevelt, said he became a Christian as * young man. He added, "Burdens and cares of my office are so: great that I couldn't stand up under them unless I could go home a< nieht and turn.them over to God." Hatoyama loves church hymns and l» the only Prime Minister of Japan ever to have one sung at i session of Diet. He relaxes each nifiht tt home by listening . to hymn*. When one of Hatoyama'» «t»ft •sked if Billy would pray at the conference . the Prime Minister apologiied for the fact that he could not stand for the prayer. Billy prayed for him, for Japan, for Russia, lor America and for all nations of the world. His' secretary Matsumoto. said It was 'the first time he had ever seen Hato- ysmn shed tears. members. Old songs of the church rang out with fervor seldom seen When a man leaves home and trav eli half way around the world to ; talk about Christ he usually mean? business. At the end of the message Billy said: "Bless your hearts. I'm not | ^reaching to you. I'm preachinR! a myself."
