HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, September 30, 1941 Japan Weathers First Year of Defeat With Surprising Determination, Good Faith BY RUSSELL BRINES AP Newsfeatures Tokyo—Japan under American tutelage has weathered her first year of defeat with surprising equilibrium and a firm determination to regain the place in international Society kut by her militarists. With general good faith the Jap- iinese have observed their surrender terms during twelve months of "•military occupation, marked by ch&nges more sweeping than any but the most optimistic imagined When American troops first entered the coldly silent country Aug. 28,1945 . None of the pestilence and starvation so fieely predicted then has struck the islands, principally . because American food and medical attention have been supplied. The political upheavals so nervously anticipated were stopped short of ser- Jous violence by the Allied command headed by Gen. Douglas MacArlhur. ( The onlv concerted opposition to occupation has been behind the scenes resistance to change by the entrenched classes that are fearful of losing their power or wealth. The hammer strokes have chisei- ledlthe outline of a new democratic /state, but the Japanese themselves must suppij the detail, arid they Will do that only under prolonged "supervision. Still politically isolated from the • rest of the world. Japan slowly is ^regaining an international position through a cautiously revived vrade. A strong desire for restoration of international citizenship colors many of her official policies and most of her political debates. But the unsolved oroblems are for de- multitudinous. Three occupation governments have failed to insure production or distribution of adequate food supply for urban jnas- ses. Inflationary currency is becoming progressively more valueless. Crime is increasing. The people, accustomed to regimentation, are looking vainly adequate leadership. The progress of democracy pends to a considerable extent up on a solution of the problems of livelihood. Industry is reviving but slowly, principally because delay in specifying reparation payments has made manufacturers fearful of reconverting factories which might be taken away from them. Durng the past few months, two fundamental changes have altered the pattern of occupation: 1. The Japanese have been handed the responsibility for completing their liberation, within the blueprints specified, by a series of sweeping directives; 2. Occupation, begun as an exclusively American task, has become international, and as a result the worldwide struggle between the American and .Russian ideologies has spilled over into these ragged islands to place a meddling finger on the pulse of rejuvenation. One reason for the amazing success of the occupation has been the Japanese responsiveness to 'authority. The basic changes which have been made thus far in the social and political life have resulted from supreme command directives, not governmental initiative. Many fundamental remnants of feudalism, such as the autocratic family system, remain virtually untouched. Experimentation and experience are providing slow but Arkansas Gl Bill Sought by Veterans Little Rock, Sept. 27 —(/Pi— The 1947 legislature will be asked to en- ict an "Arkansas G.t. Bill ol Flights' to aid veterans in prob- cms which "cannot be solved on a national basis.' the state depart- nent of the Veterans of Foreign Wars announced today. A VFW spokesman said the proposal, not yet drafted in linal :"orm !or submission to the general assembly, would be co-sponsored by .he American Veterans of World War Two. He indicated the proposed bills principal provisions would regard: (1) Full preference :for veterans' lomes over all types of construction, more inclusive than the national program; (2) Maximum employment op» portunities, with yoreran.

(4) Simplification of loan procedure to make it possible :"or veterans to acquire capital ior homes and businesses more easilv. The VFW also said the possibility of a state bonus for veterans was under consideration and might appear in the final draft of the prq- posal. btaie CFW Commander Bob Ed Lofti, Fort Smith, said: "We propose the Arkansas G.I. Bill not as a group, not as a bloc, not as a single purpose clement, but as an expedient to ihe progress of the whole state of Arkansas.' The VFW, which describes veterans' housing as Arkansas No. 1 problem, said a number of legislators had expressed approval of the proposal. Dead Heat for National Loop Pennant By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer In a fitting climax to baseball's most turbulent year, the close of the regular season today found the National League without a champion, since the Brooklyn Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals wound up in a dead heat for first place. It is doubtful if ever before so many hectic episodes were crowded into one big league season. Here are just a icw of the things that happened in 1946: The raiding of the majors by George Pasciuel's Mexican Baseball League; Robert Murphy's of fort to establish a baseball union and 1 the narrowly averted Pittsburgh Pirates player strike; rc.iig nation of six major league managers: evacuation of the National League cellar by ihe Philadelphia J hils, who some thought had a ifclong option there: sale of the "'illsburgh and Cleveland clubs; Bob Keller's determined bid for a strikeout record: the Boston Red ox' iirst pennant in 28 years, and rclorcl itt.000,000 attendance mark for the majors. The Cards-Dodgers deadlock was probably thorough implementation of the freedoms guarntcccl to the common man by the supreme. commander's directives. Social and governmental institutions are being affected by the tides of new thought running through the country, but the premature removal of supervision would leave intact the machinery for reestablishing oligarchic control An initial surge toward democracy carried the people so :Ear ;hal for the first time in recent political life their influence was predominant in the overthrow last April of Premier Kijuro Shidehara's cabi net.His successor, Shigeru Yoshida was chosen after prolonged delay through jockeying of political par ties rather than in the previously customary fashion of a secret Im perial Court caucus. Social-political lines are r.ov. more sharply defined than cvei before in the country's history. The clash of classes reached a crescen dolast May with a series of mass demonstrations, some of them totaling 150,000 participants, demanding more food and the elimination of conservative governments. These demonstrations were openly led by Communists whose followers showed an increasing tendency to become unruly. The demonstrations stopped immediately after warnings by MacArthur,, but minority leftwingers have continued their sharp vocal criticism of the government which Diver Receives Neil Martin Sports Trophy Little Rock, Sept. 30 — MV-Carl Quaintance. of Little Rock, a student at the University of Texas and an outstanding diver for several years, will receive the Neil Martin trophy as Arkansas' out- standlng amateur athlete of 1946. He was selected for that honor by the Arkansas .. Association of Amateur Athletic union at a meeting here yesterday. Quaintance won both the springboard and platform diving championships in the men's division of AAU state competition this summer. He was a southwest diving champion in 1943 and this year placed in the nalional ouldoor diving contest. Leroy Scott and J. W. Mitchell, both of Little Rock, wore re-elected president and secretary-treasurer, respectively, of the Arkansas Association. Vice Presidents include C. C. Higgins of Fort Smith. er Bob Elliott and catcher Hank Camilli to Boston. In return the Hues receive Herman, Infielder Bill Wietelmann, Pitcher Elmer Singleton and Outfielder Stanley Wentzcl.

Meetings of the Allied control council for Japan have been dominated by recurrent and frequently sharp debates between American and Soviet members with British and Chinese delegates sometimes supporting the Russian view. Chairman George Atcheson, Jr, declared at one session that the United States permitted Communist activity but did not approve its philosophy. A recent statement by the economic and scientific section of the Supreme Command charged that leftwingers in Japan were using propaganda and "terrorism" to rcimposc a regimentation of the Japanese labor movement "under the left." These public discussions have augmented other indications that one part of the occupation is now concerned with blocking any Soviet efforts to capitalize politically upon beaten and underfed Japan. They have helped to confuse Japanese who are seeking to ascertain the type of democracy and international goodwill they are expected to practice. Labor has capitalized most :"ully upon the new freedom. Supreme Command figures show over 4,000 unions, aggregating more than 3,000 000 members. In numerous blood- ess controversies they have won 212 trade .agreements. The unions have contributed pecularily Japanese version of "democracy'. Several have taken over control of production and managements in struck plants — practice condemned by the Supreme Command and supported by the Russian member of Ihe foui power council. Legislation banning this .strike weapon has been promised, but the government has also warned employers they face confiscation of factories if unable to maintain industrial peace.
