Gdlesbu tg ft egister-Moil, Galesburg, Thursday, J ujylJrJL 1973 % Japanese Feel Slighted by U.S. By Pm NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst Secretary erf State William P. Rogers has departed Japan leaving behind the usual diplomatic smiles but the Japanese with the feeling they still are being treated as secomkdass citizens. Foreign News Commentary The occasion was the ninth annual U.S.-Japanese economic conference which always is held at the cabinet level and which the Japanese had looked forward to particularly this year because of pressing economic questions and because of Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka's impending visit to the United States. E s p e C i a 11 y the Japanese wanted to know, what the United States intended to do about the dollar and about future agricultural exports. They therefore were especially disappointed when the three men they most wanted to hear dropped out of the meeting at the last moment Soybean Cutbacks Hurt They were Secretary of the Treasury George P. Shultz, Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz and Herbert Stein, chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers. Explanations that they were needed in Washington, presum­ ably because of the approaching announcement of Phase IV in President Nixon's anti- inflation program, failed to convince the Japanese they were being treated other than as inferiors. It is a feeling which has been growing steadily ever since Washington's late notice to j-Tokyo of U.S. detente with China in 1971, Latest strain on U.S.-Japanese ties had been the cutback withbut advance notice of the export of soybeans to Japan. Ban Denounced Next to fish, soybeans are the most important source of protein for the Japanese people, and 92 per cent of the soybean Asian Dope Kingpin Believed Nabbed supply comes from the United States. The Japan Foreign Trade Council denounced the ban as one "utterly ignoring internationally established commercial practices." And it was one of the background reasons for Foreign Minister Masayoshi Ohira's stern admonition to the United States at the opening of the I conference to wield more "discipline" over its economy. From Butz they had wanted firm assurances that Japanese needs in the future would receive high priority in the allocation of U.S. agricultural products.

UNIFAX Rebel Pressure Is Heavy In Cambodian Fighting BANGKOK (UPI)-Narcotics agents said today they have captured a man described by U.S. officials as responsible for much of the opium and heroin trade in Asia. The suspect was identified as Lo Hsing-han, a Chinese resident of Burma. Agents said that since 1964, Lo has operated a private army that moved opium and heroin caravans from north Burma to the outside world. They gave few details of the arrest, but sources said Lo apparently seized near the district town of Mae Hong Son in Thailand, about 400 miles north of Bangkok, during a massive search operation by Thai and U.S. narcotics agents using helicopters and light aircraft. Lt. Gen. Prachuab Sunt- sarangkur, deputy director general of Thailand police, said Lo is under detention on charges of illegal entry into the country. Lo became a symbol of narcotics traffic through the so- called Golden Triangle, where Burma, Thailand and Laos come together, when he was described last year by a senior State Department narcotics adviser, as "an international bandit responsible for a growing portion of Asian and American drug-caused mise ries." Narcotics agents estimate that about 10 per cei\t of the heroin used in the United States each year comes from Southeast Asia. tion for the steps they have taken to help the United States;: ease its balance of payments? problems. j~ U.S. trade with Japan ranjj more than $4 billion m the redf last year.

(UPI) —On his recent visit to the United States, Soviet Leader Leonid I. Brezhnev, a western movie fan, recognized actor Chuck Connors In a crowd at the Western White house and gave him a leaping hug.
