The memorial Is inscribed, transited: "Sleep quietly. The mistake will not be repeated," Japanese are Quick to .say trial the "mistake" was not the atom bombing but Japan's war-starting attack on Pearl Harbor, At Nagasaki, smashed by the second atomic bomb, officials of the two cities gathered to protest what they, called America's "cold altitude" toward victims of the bombings, Kyodo News Agency said .spokesmen for the world's only atom- bombed cities charged thai . the United States rvas responsible for the explosion;, und should provide They asserted the atom bomb casualty commission established by Ihe U. S. has used survivors for research purposes but opposed a Japanese plan to build a special hospital for them. Kyodo snid the Nagasaki conference proposed that the U. S. grant long term loans to help rebuild areas leveled by the explosions. There 5s considerable disagreement over how heav a toll the Hiroshima A-bomb claimed. Estimates based on the U. S. strategic bombing survey show about 80,000 wore killed. But the Japanese press insists that more than 200,000 died. A scroll containing more than 200,000 names was placed in a crypt under the A-bomb memorial during ceremonies today. Obituaries G. T. P«»erton, 76, DMS in California Services for O. T.
