FAOBTWO BL11 HI. IILLB (AWt.V OOTWBS Merger of Japanese Parties Seen AsStepTowardEconomLcStabiiity By JAMES TOKYO (AP) — The formation of Japan's first united conservative party may tx the first, big step in the island empire's quest for economic stability. The rnerger last week of the Democrats and Liberals into the Liberal-Democrat party makes possible a solid majority government with the continuity of policy and planning needed to rebuild Japan's shattered trade fortunes, Soviet 'Juvenile Are Lashed by LONDON M'l — A Moscow radio commentator says some teen-age Russian boys are sporting nail pol- Tra<t« is the only means by which an industrious land of too many people and too few re- inbSs can earn the purchr.jin? power to buy necessities abroad. The gap between what Japan must buy and what it can pay for is still great — between 300 and 400 million dollars a year, a deficit covered by purchases of U.S. service forces stationed here. Industrialists, businessmen and government leaders know thatthe U. S. forces will not always bei here and the day is in sight when Japan must curry the full load. Industrialists and businessmen have been among the most active backers of the conservative merger, achieved after seven months of struggle. The new Liberal-Democrats have 300 seats in the dominant 467-seatj lower house of the Diet — almost! twice the 154444444488888 j lower house of the Diet — almost j twice the 154 of the ocialists. Iti it the greatest majority held by aj «ingle party in postwar Japan. I Yet trouble lies ahead for the[ new alignment. The first test may; com* when Ichiro Hatoyama, Ja-j pan's ailing, 72-year-old prime j minister steps down in April. I Already there have been vague' hints the mantle will not fall on 1 the shoulders of Taketora Ogata, I who headed the Liberal party. [ without a battle. As .part of the' merger bargain. OR ta is sup-; posed to succeed Hatoyama. ! A second test will come when, the party's strength is tried in nnj election. This will offer voters a clear-cut choice between left and : right of center parlies and deter- j mine whether the slow Socialist! gains of the past three years will continue. But in the long run. the greatest test of ail will be the parly's sue- cess or failure in solving the problems of trade. Many feel the conservatives must seek out markets in South-! east Asia, an almost unlimited! storehouse of the raw materials: needed for Japan's industries. j Truman Cites Medical Needs Stevenson Is Presidential Choice in Poll at Arkansas U.

Truman says federal, state and local government shave "a joint and serious responsibility" to meet medical problems confronting the public. He told the American Public Health Assn. Thursday night, "We must, get to the basic need of universal public .health insurance," accelerate hospital construction and overcome a doctor shortage. "But even more important than getting hospitals and doctors is the matter of medical research," the former president said. "Medical research is the foundation o£ all medical progress, for each doctor can apply only as much knowledge as medical research can open up for him." Truman said present health insurance covers only "15 per cent of ihe more than 10 billion dollars of medical bills of the American people and 8 million American families are in debt for medical care." Delinquents' Moscow Radio Ish that "defies description." That and a lot of other things got a thorough going over Friday in a ftoine service broadcast warning well-to-do parents their aons are getting out of hand. The broadcast was addressed to cruples it said typically "possess a television set, a summer house in the country and who live in one of the new tall blocks of flaw and have on their bookshelves De Maupassam,. Boccaccio and Swift." The commentator said such parents are likely to "know very little about their 16-year-old son and care very liltle whether they see him erery day for meals or not, where he goes and what he does." And he added: "Look at him, the precious pet. "Look at his tie, the color of a parrot. "I^ook at the cigarette stuck between his teeth . . . and this at the j a^e of 16. / "Look at his socks of specially chosen shade, and as to his nails, J the varnish defies description. "Listen to his expressions, to his words—you could find better ones in the gutter. "There is your son. a snob of the utmost vulgarity, an almost fully matured good-for-nothing."
