NMTHWBT AttCANSAS TIM8. It, 1«S9 , Column By HAL BOYLE New York-(fl")-Papa-San is taking it on the chin in Japan. "Honorable Father" is losing his age-old power over Mama-San, or "Honorable Mother." The theory of male dominance is setting in the Land of the Rising Sun, just is it set in America a generation ·*·,.' Soon the hand that rocks the cradle will rule the roost in old Nippon, just as it does now in most of'the Western world. , The twilight of Far Eastern manhood was forecast in a recent dispatch from Futakawa village on the Japanese island of Honshu. The village elders there, bowing to changing times, voted that ·women were to have a holiday the 15th of each month, on which Hay njen will wash, cook and do'all the' other household chores. In a lame justification of this retreat from traditional masculine 'authority, the ciders told- the · women they were expected to use their holidays to "elevate their cultural standards." . · But if they really think Mama- San is going to spend her new leisure studying llower arrangements--well, they just don't know Mama-San. the bath. T will lay those village wise men 8-to-l odds that before the year is out Mamf-San will be going into politics, organizing softball teams, and learning to play canasta and blow smoke rings through her nose. 'The odds are heavy also that Mama-San will live up to an old .Western proverb holding, that if you give a woman an inch she will take a mile. "Why should we have a holiday just once a month?" she will ask. "Let's put our foot down, girls, and get a holiday every week, plus half a day off on Sunday." And before long Papa-San will be doing the dishes and diapers in dear old Futawaka, whil Mama- San runs for public office to oust the village elders who voted her the first holiday. But the step has been taken and there can be no turning back. Japanese men lost the second war abroad. Now they are losing the postwar war at home, "the kimona rebellion" by which women-are gaining what they euphemistically call "equal rights." A wifp'j? place was in the home but she had a fine title: "The honorable inner dweller." And a smart Japanese wife usually managed to be boss within the realm of her home. The new Japanese constitution gives Mama-San many new rights and privileges. But this business of. letting Papa-San into the kitchen, even for one day a month, opens a whole new world of Western woes. It means two bosses in the home, trying to share responsibility for menus and child care. "Is this the best you can do?" Papa-San will grumble after every meal. "I can cook better sukiyaki than this with shoes on my hands." If I were a young Japanese psychiatrist, I believe I'd hang up my shingle in Futakawa. The Mama- Sans, weighted with the strange new worries of leisure, ought to be a gold mine.
