N'ewsCcudireA , SPOKANE, Wash.—George Imal, national field secretary for the Boy Scouts of Japan, has enrolled at Whit worth College as a freshman ti social work. This is the second .ime that Imal has been a college freshman but today he's a lot more optimistic about his own and his country's future than he was when ie first tried college six years ago. He was in his second month at a Tokyo university in 1343 when the Japanese draft swept, him into a naval officers training school. Then as a 17-year old cadet Imal said he was certain that Japan could not win 'the war and that he would surely be killed in action. He says lie was so sure that he volunteered to be a Kamakaxe pilot "to get it over with." But the Japanese turned down his request to fly a .suicide plane and in May, 1945, he was commissioned an ensign In the Emperor's navy. Before he could be assigned to a ship the war was over. Imai took off his ensign's uniform and burned it In accordance wlih occupation orders. But in a few months lie put on another uniform —that of the Boy Scouts of Japan and at 23 became the national field secretary. 1 Imal says the scouting program in Japan is poorly organized but could 36 a great help In rehabilitation of the country. "The younger generation ia Japan didn't have a good education because of the war," he aid, "and most of them at present ddn't care what happens. I want :o help remedy this." He hopes to lake executive scout training in New Jersey and In London after graduating from Whitworth and then return to Japan to train future Boy Scout leaders. Imal fir?t became Interested In .scouting in Honolulu where he attended grade school and learned English. He recalls that as a member of Honolulu troop 36 he helped form an honor guard for Franklin D. Roosevelt when the late President visited the islands in 1035. When he returned to Tokyo for high school he remained active in Floy Scout work. Dandelion and bacon aalad Is « favorite in the province of Champagne, France.
