fcige Six "* Empress of Japan Visits Nation's Poor By TOM LAMBERT Tokyo Feb. 22 — i^»—The empress of Japan walked among her nation s sick and poor today. She saw unhappy, miserable people. Saisekai hospital and clinic for the destitute evidently had been prepared for Empress . Nagako's visit. But no amount of work could conceal dirty walls, gloomy corridors, tattered linoleum. No "amount of preparation could hide the misery of patients lying on unkempt straw mattresses covered with lumpy bedclothes in rooms where radiators stood unused ,-ind fold The empress' departure from tne moated palace to give personal solace to the victims of Ja- pan's years of war followed by Emperor Mirohito's unpredecented two-day lour of the bomb-flattened lokyo area. She rode directly from the palace to the hospital in a black Mercedes-Benz limousine, marked with the imperial golden crysanthe- mum. She wore a blue dress with atouc h of white at the throat, a black coat with n fur collar, black oxfords, and black gloves. Her hair was coiffured American style, softly waved and held in place by bobb pins and a black harinet. Sympathetically. the empress asked about hospital conditions — now the palienls were treated, how they were responding to treatment. U the babies she saw were cel- ling proper feeding. Supt. Takco Koyama told her :here was not enough milk cr medicines and thai patients responded slowly to treatment because of improper diet. e empress talked with Nazis Strutted as Lidice Burned HOPE STAR, KANSAS mpr The .If examination ol twitching will in cvi Automatic Speed Electric Irons 1 Year Guarantee O.30 7Qt.

Unanimous decisions by the government in a long, clamorous session brought to a head lhe mounl- ng pressure in France for a clear- cut severance of relations with rcneralissimo Francisco Franco.
