FOUNDED N n AND STILL 14 EXISTENCE AFTER 317 YIARS/ Japanese Woman Leader Asks U.S. Aid In Controlling Spread Of Prostitution Tokyo - (/P) - Japan's foremost woman leader has appealed to the j wife of Gen. Matthew B. Hidg- way to help to keep American troops away from prostitutes and prevent seduction of Japanese girls. In an open letter published in the monthly magazine, Women's Forum, Mrs. Tamaki Uyemura accused American servicemen of "corrupting Japanese morals." "Please co-operate with us Japanese and protect your own young Americans." she nskcd Mrs. Hidgway, who declined comment. Mrs. Uyemura continued: "Such prostitutes soliciting U. S. troops now total between 70,000 and 80,00.0 in Japan and earn 200 million dollars a year. This is a big business--next to the. Korean V.'ar business which totals 400 million. "These poor girl victims--the end product of the war defeat-have reportedly, mothered 200,000 illegitimate children and deserted many." Mrs. Uyemura, 62, a graduate of Wcllesley College in the United Slates, is head of the Young Women's Christian Association Japan. She wrote as a member of the National Public Safely Commission which supervises Japanese police activities.

That earlier inventory recession carried much of the same overtone of worry lest the long-awaited post-war depression was al hand. But the 1949 recession ended that summer and a now boom started, was given a big boost by Korea, and give fina By JAME8 MAILOW Washington-!*")-!!!* dispute between President Truman and members of Confresx over seizure of 'the steel Industry it further evidence of the breakdown In relatloni between the White Houie and the Capitol, This « election year and politics, ct course, are a big factor in this, wretched situation, which is steadily getting worse. But tht fact is that the breakdown is real and sarnest. The rest of the country can only sweat it out. The most recent previous dem- ons:rsti i f- of how deep the split was appe.-jred in what happened to Truman's attempt to have an investigation of government corruption. That was when he asked Congress for subpoena powers for Newbold Morris. The then attorney general McGrath had picked Morril as a cleanup man. Congre'ss not only denied him the subpoena powers but some members denounced him, thus for all practical purposes scutllinjt the investigation. This ended like a musical comedy when McQrath - fired Morris and Truman fired McGrath, all in the same day. The president then chose James P. McGranery as attorney general and new cleanup man. But before McGranery can tak^ office he must be approved by the Senate. Weeks have passed and no approval yet, which means further bogging of the Investigation and the Justice Department is without a regular head. No taw On Batiki When it came to the uteel seizure government lawyers apparently could find no lav/ on the books specifically giving the president authority to take over the steel industry to head off a strike. Truman decided such a strike would hurt defense and so damage the national welfare. Since he seemed to lick specific authority in any law for the s:i~tire, he relied on the Constitution. The powers conferred on the president and commander-in-chief j j us t as ^ ^^ j n ;\«-,,-(.(, Businessmen, Jittery As They Watch Prices Falling, Are Reminded Of The 1949 Spring Slump, Which Many Saw As A Depression jitters lly ran into the same (lut of inventories that fretted the business man in 1949. The parallel between the spring of 1949 and today if pointed up by a number of items In the day's ews. Merchants -- always pronp to pessimistic talk -- say the post- Easter sales are disappointing, just as they found Arrll, 1949, a disappointment. Buyers are staying it home, the merchants in several cltiefi say, despite big promotional campaigns. In New York, department store sales last week were five per cent sebind those of a year ago, and 'or the last four weeks sales have trailed 1951 by one per cent. The end of customer reluctance, long predicted, still hasn't been sighted yet. Business earnings are falling .his spring, just as they slumped in 1949; Higher taxes now gets much o'f the blame, but not all -earnings before taxes are down his spring for many firms, who '·ce higher operating coats, cus- :omer sales resistance or pr i c c controls on their products. Employment in non-farm work failed to gain in March this year, by the Constitution are broad and vague. They don't say he could seize the steel industry in a situation like this. But they don't specifically say he couldn't. Truman Interpreted the Constitution as giving th« prepotent unstated but wide and implied power to act as he did In this case when he thinks there is a national emergency and that th« country might suffer if he didn't. At once his cre'tlci in Congress called him a dictator and usurper of constitutional powers which they orjue don't exist. I The"fat was in the fire again: iAnd yesterday the Senate, led" by basketball star for the University | Republicans,' voted what was In I effect a rehuke to Truman for hi? of Nebraska. were the only two months of March since World War II, in which employment did not rise over the February total. The Bureau of Labpr Statistics reports that durable goods producers hired more men in March than in February, but In retail trade and consumer goods Industries employment was cut back, Another even more striking parallel between the Uvo springs may he shaping up in price softening in metals. With the exception of the spring of ID-IB, most j non-ferrous metals hnvo been in Rood demand since World War II. and prices have been f i r m -- n t limes soarlnp.. nnd lit present bumping at Imposed price ceilinirs. In the spring of 19411, with foo;i and textile prices already .slumped, metal men suddenly found that a metal shortage had turned I n t o .1 surplus.
