U.S.-Japanese Relationship Is Maturing Qolisbura Reaiit»f«Maii Galtshurg, Ml. Thursdgy, Aug. 1, 1973Jj, By SffEWART HfiNSUSY WASBIKeWN (tJPl) =j-.lHi meetings rare this week be- twten President Nixon and Japanese Prime Minister Ra- huei Tanaka mark- the end ot 111 era which began With the •orrender on the deck of the battleship "Missouri" in Tokyo harbor nearly 18 y*ars ago. Senior American officials contend that the Nixon-Tanaka conversations emphasized "the maturing of the whole Japa- nete^Americin wltttotohip." they point out that the d^vytated^nd crippled conn* try tne united States helped to its feet ts new the world 's third largest producer, with a gross national product of around $300 billion. It is a major competitor in world markets, where Japanese and American interests sometimes clash. And while Tokyo still clings to its nuclear security blanket— the mutual defense pact with the United States— the Japanese are not at all sure how much this is worth. Will Visit Rtisia While strengthening their conventional forces somewhat, die Japanese appear to sub* scribe more and more to the theory that the yen is mightier than the sword. Tanaka came to Washington as the representative of a nation whose goodwill, cooperation and support is solicited on a number of fronts—the United States, Russia, China and Southeast Asia. Russia, which Tanaka will vlilt this fall, sees Japan as a valuable potential ally and friend. Moscow would like to see the Japanese exercise a stabilising influence on China and at the same time provide some of the tens of billions of dollars the Kremlin needs in order to extract and exploit petroleum resources m Siberia. The Chinese appear to believe that reconciliation with Japan would serve as a counterweight to the Russians in the Asian political balance and might also loosen Japan's ties with the United States. Stability Wanted Southeast Asia is hoping primarily for continued increase in the Japanese aid and investment program there, since Tokyo is the area's closest and most effective source of assistance. The United States wants stable Japan as a good influence in Asia and also hopes to enlist Tokyo in the global battle against financial and economic ills which plague WE ARE HAVING ANOTHER <'~ Kitchen Kompact Kitchens Bring Your Measurements Take Your Cabinets Home Sole Starts Thurs. f July 26 — Ends Sat., August 4 Full 6 Foot of Glen wood INCLUDING: Counter Top & Stainless Steel Sink OUTSTANDING VALUE FREE!

Kissinger and Secretary of Stat* William P. Rogers talk about the global iWe they hope Japan will play. U.S. officials provide no specifics but say they want Japan to focus on the following key areas: —Trade reform, in particular at the Tokyo meeting this fall of the countries adhering to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). —International financial ar rangements to stabilize the exchange market and bring more reality into this phase of world finance. —The energy problem, which U.S. officials are able to define in only the vaguest terms when it comes to talking on a global basis. -^Arrangements to stabilize supply and demand of agricultural products to avoid international imbalances. Unpopular at Heme One of the ironies about Tanaka is that he finds himself more popular abroad than at home—a situation which could seriously hamper his ability to retain his post as premier and carry out any international commitments he may make here or in other countries. Aside from the normal perils of political leadership, Japanese polls show that the decline in Tanaka's popularity at home is due primarily to his reducing exports to the United States in order to cut the foreign trade mbalance which plagues Nixon. The U.S. deficit in trade with Japan last year was $4.2 billion. This year it will probably be between, $2 and $2.5 billion, partly because the United States banned soybean exports for a period. The Japanese also are worried about Nixon's ability to handle his political and economic problems. For that reason, Tanaka probably will check things out with China and Russia again before he finally decides on what course to take. Woodcock Starts Talks at Moline MOLINE, 111. (UPI) - United Auto Workers President Leonard Woodcock opened contract talks Wednesday ort behalf of nearly 23,000 members employed by Deere and Co. "We're going to the bargain ing as we always have by laying out the problems and try ing to find answers to those problems and not be concerned with whether or not they fit within a prescribed circle," the UAW chief said. Woodcock said economic con- trolp will not play any important role. The current contract between Deere and its UAW member employes expires Oct. 1.
