He also was one of about 200 Japanese-Americans from Call forma who gathered here this weekend to commemorate their imprisonment. While the rest of the nation prepared to honor its war dead, the Japanese-Americans were conduct!ng memorial services in Klamath Falls for those who died of natural causes at the nearby relocation camp outside Tulelake, Calif. They also visited the camp, which since has become the site of an elementary school and an airport. The 1,200 barracks that held up to 22,000 people between 1942 and 1946 virtually have disappeared. Little remains,of the camp except scattered lengths of barbed wire fence, an occasional dilapidated building and painful memories in the minds of those who lived there. criminals," said Takeshita, recalling his trek at age 11 to the San Hateo.

Humphrey poses that rhetorical question in pleading for · a display of American generosity to the down-and-out nations of the world. , ., Congressional support for foreign aid has wavered in recent years, a trend dramatized last January by a lopsided House vote against a $1.5 billion 'replenishment for the International Development Association. The IDA is a World Bank subsidiary which lends low-in terest money only to the poorest of the poor nations, those with per capita incomes of $1 a day or less. In slightly altered form, the bill comes up for a Senate vote Wednesday, and Humphrey has been trying to rally support. "Will you give up three four packages of · cigarettes a year?" he asked. Prospects are that the bill providing $1.5 billion ,to the IDA over four years, will win Senate approval. India's nuclear test earliei this month provides a good ar gument for opponents of the bil seeking an end to American funding of the IDA. '? Pointing out that India ha received some 40 per cent of al IDA outlays, Sen. Harry Byrd Ind.-Va.. said that nation's nu clear device "very likely wouU never have been built" had not been for the billions of dol lars put in by the Unitec States. But Byrd's view appears t be in the minority. The lobbying effort in th enate has focused on three tain contentions: --Aid money often is used by poor nations to buy U.S. goods nd services. --In an interdependent world, le United States needs friends broad for providing of raw materials. --Areas of Africa and Asia ace the specter of widespread tarvation in coming months because of adverse weather conditions;-and mounting costs or imported food.
