In the background, left to right, are Leo Crowley, Maj Gen Philip Fleming, William H. Davis, John W. Snyder, James Forrestal, Fred Vinson, Tom Clark, Lewis Schwellenbach, John B. Blandford Jr. and Robert Hannegan. Hirohito Continued from the First Page "Such being the case, how are we to save the millions of our subjects; or to atone ourselves before the hallowed spirits of our imperial ancestors? This is the reason we have ordered the acceptance of the joint declaration of the powers." The dispatch quoted him as saying: "Beware most strictly of any outbursts of emotion which may engender needless complications, of any fraternal contention and strife which may create confusion, lead ye astray and cause ye to lose the confidence of the world. "Let the entire nation continue as one family from generation to generation, ever firm in its faith in the imperishable' ness of its divine land, and 1 1 mindful of its heavy burden of responsibilities ' and the long road before it." Adm Baron Kantaro Suzuki followed the Emperor. in a broadcast speech. He also told the Japanese people that Japan's "war aim" was lost "by the enemy's use of the new type bomb." - The Domei dispatch said "It Is the first time in Japan's history that the Emperor spoke to the nation over the radio." The text of the rescript Includes the following: "Indeed, we declared war on America and Britain out of our sincere desire to insure Japans self-preservation and the establishment of East Asia, It being far from our thought either to infringe upon the sovereignty of other nations or to embark upon territorial aggrandizement. ''But now the war has lasted for nearly four years. Despite the best that has been done by everyone the gallant fighting of the military and naval forces, the diligence and assidinte onr servants of the state arwt tht ciewttd serswe t our one hundred million peop,e. the war situation has developed not necessarily to Japans advantage, while the general trends of the world have all turned against her interest." Challenge of Peace NowMust.Be Met, Says Adm Gygax Rear Adm Felix Gygax, USN, Commandant of the 1st Naval District and of the Boston Navy Yard: "The official announcement that Japan has surrendered comes as joyous news to all of us. The sons and daughters of New England who have served and are serving in the armed forces and production forces have contributed in outstanding measure to the complete victories over the Axis forces of aggression. "The challenge of war has been met and has terminated in complete victory for us and for all peace-loving, civilized peoples throughout the world. "We now must meet the challenge of peace. Let us dedicate ourselves to the establishment of a peace that will be worthy of our hero dead, a peace that will serve as an everlasting reminder that their supreme sacrifices have not been made in vain. "Let us never again forget that to enjoy peace we must always stand ready and able to protect it." 1, Aso,viawi; 1:MgYV ta:,-se,--'46dinu-amomag . .. ... . .... . .. . ..,,.. '.

She fell before the greatest concentration of might in all history. , For the Allies, the road to victory and peacewas long and hard and bloody. moony. , Japan had hoped to conquer all of Asia; to rule all the Pacificand divide up the world with Germany. This was her hope on Sunday. Dec. 7, 1941, when her warplanes streaked in over Pearl Harbor while her emissaries talked ''peace" in Washington. This was their hope when the Japanese naval leaderIsoruku Yamahotosaid soon after Pearl Harbor we would dictate the peace from the White House. The peace was dictated from the White House, but not by Yamamoto who is long since dead. It was dictated by a Missouri boy President Trumanin collaboration with Allied leaders.

American G.I.'s in Paris, who had held in their enthusiasm over the approaching end of the Japanese war, broke loose tonight in a loud and boisterous celebration. Waving Allied flags, singing songs and yelling like wildcats, they formed an impromptu victory march which kept growing in size as it moved along the Paris boulevards. Included in the parade were trucks and jeeps literally covered with Gra and WACS. The motorized section of the spontaneous parade was preceded and followed by several thousands on foot.

The occupying forces of the Allies shall be withdrawn from Japan as soon as these objectives have been accomplished and there has been established in accordance with the freely expressed will of the Japanese people a peacefully inclined and responsible government. We call upon the government of Japan to proclaim now the unconditional surrender of all Japanese armed forces, and to provide proper and' adequate assurances of their good faith in such action. The alternative for Japan is prompt and utter destruction. (2) Japanese "Understanding" The Japanese government are ready to accept the terms with the understanding that the said declaration does not comprise any demand which prejudices the prerogatives of his majesty as a sovereign ruler. (3) U. S. Attitude and Immedlatl Surrender Steps This is what the Japanese said "Yes" to tonight along with all the Potsdam declaration). From the moment of surrender the authority of the Emperor and the Japanese government to rule the state shall be subject ta the supreme commander of int Allied powers who will take such steps as he deems proper to effect the surrender terms. The Emperor will be required to authorize and insure the signature by the government of Japan and the Japanese Imperial General Headquarters of the surrender terms necessary to carry out the provisions Cf the Potsdam declaration, and shall issuehis commands to all the Japanese military, naval and air authorities and to all of the forces under their control wherever located to cease active operations and to surrender their arms. and to issue such other orders as the Supreme Commander may require to give effect to the surrender terms. Immediately upon, the surrender the Japanese Government shall transport prisoners of war and civilian internees to places of safety, as directed. where they can quickly be placed aboard Allied transports. The ultimate form of government of Japan shall, in accordance with the Potstam declaration, be establishedby the feeely-expeessed will of the Japanese people.

Washington blew its top when the official announcement came, and not an instant before. Paper showers burst from the windows and long-hoarded fireNtorks exploded in a frantic salute. Girls kissed soldiers and sailors, in Washington as elsewhere. The Navy also will send In military government officers for a joint administration similar to the setup on Okinawa where the task is shared by the two services. Details of the military government plan for Japan had not been disclosed but informed sources say it calls for a stern rule similar to the administration effective in Germany. The military government is expected to establish headquarters only in key areas, largely on the large Japanese island of Honshu. Boston Retailers Pledge Highest Employment Edward L.
