Kishi told reporters: "Even if there Is the slightest bit of doubt about the President's safely in Japan, it makes it inappropriate for him to visit at this time." Eisenhower, in Manila, regretfully agreed. Like Kishi he blamed Tokyo's left-wing turmoil on a small group of Communist agitators. of acting like Japan's old mlDtary masters. Red Opportunity But the opportunity now before the Communist world—a Japan pushed perilously close to revolution by a violent minority—may never come again. It is exactly the type of chaotic situation Communists deliberately foster as the proper setting for a bid for power. The question remaind as to whether the Communists would let this opportunity pass.

The Japanese government could easily drive the mobs from, the streets if it could get some back ing from press and public to restore order.

The prime minister had planned to postpone this by recessing Parliament during Eisenhower's visit to ease the tension, but it appeared likely he now would keep Parliament in session «o the treaty would take effect as originally planned. Moscow already was crowing over the government's action. A Tass agency dispatch said: "By cancelling the invitation to President Eisenhower, the Kishi government actually admitted its bankruptcy." The decision came as Tokyo was threatened with another day of left-wing violence.
