Tuesday, July 17, 1973 Afghanistan Proclaimed Republic, All Quiet NEW DfcLtil (DPI) Official Kabul Radio broadcast a statement by a former prime minister today that proclaimed the strategically located king dom of Afghanistan a republic, ending the 40-year rule of King Muhammad Zahir Shah. Hie broadcast, quoted by All Indian Radio, said Sardar Muhammad Daud announced the new republic and said it would end the present Afghan 4 'pseudo-democracy.'' Daud was quoted as saying the military seized power to save Afghanistan from corruption and despotism. Bankruptcy "Afghanistan has been head-11965. ing toward bankruptcy in every Way," Daud said. The broadcast did not mention the fate of the 58-year-old king, believed to be vacationing in Italy. The broadcast ended with an announcer saying there was "complete peace" in the country. •/ Daud is a cousin of the king and was his prime minister until 1963 when he was fired. His dismissal was followed by moves designed to give the country of 17 million persons a measure of modern democracy, first with a constitution in 1964 and parliamentary elections in Afghanistan, which is not aligned with any big power, lies below the Soviet Union near Central Asia and is bordered by Pakistan on the east and Iran on the west. Its fabled mountain passes were used as a route between Asia, and Europe by Marco Polo and Genghis Khan. Daud said he and "my colleagues" would rule demo* cratically, with a policy of nonalignment with the big powers. Details of the coup were not announced and Kabul Radio played military music before and after Daud spoke, accord* ing to the Indian broadcast. The king ascended to the throne in 1933, becoming sovereign of the country at the age of 19 after his father was assassinated. Believed Dead Japanese War Straggler Is Found on Mindanao PAPERBACKS 10c HARDBOUND BOOKS 25c BenneTrs unurnirdb. 340 E. Main MANILA (UPI) - A Jap* nese World War II straggler listed as dead was found on the island of Mindanao by his twin brother after a 28-year search, the Japanese Embassy said today. A spokesman said Sozo Miki, 51, identified/ the straggler as his long-missing brother Ryoji, a former senior seaman in the Imperial Navy. The spokesman said an elder brother and other relatives were scheduled to fly into Manila later today, presumably for a family reunion with the newly found straggler. Miki was officially listed as dead after World War II. "I don't have any details," the embassy spokesman said, "but Sozo Miki merely told me that he found his twin brother sometime this month in Mindanao and that Ryoji expressed a desire to be left alone and to remain in the Philippines." He said the embassy knew of Miki's discovery only after the twin brother told officials Monday. Ryokji Miki, the official said, apparently has married a Filipino woman and has a family in Mindanao. "Sozo told me," the embassy official said, "that although his twin brother was officially listed as dead, he refused to believe it..." Another Japanese straggler found recently was Sgt. Shoichi Yokoi, who was spotted hiding in a cave on Guam 19 months ago. However, there are frequent reports of dozens of other stragglers in the Philippines. Mindanao is the Philippines' third largest island, the home of 3.5 million Moslems and before World War II, the site of a Japanese colony. Young eels that migrate upstream are called elvers.
