Holland Evening Sentinel, The (Newspaper) - November 22, 1963, Holland, Michigan FRIDAY, NOVEMBER II, 1963 THE HOLLAND, MICHIGAN, EVENING SENTINEL PAGE SEVEN State Exports Should Increase CHICAGO (UPD Michigan may become the Midwest's leading exporter to Japan as a result of that country's newly relaxed import barriers, a Jap- anese trade expert predicts. In 1960 Michigan ranked 10th in the nation and second in the Midwest in exprots to Japan with million compared to Illinois' million. However, beginning next year, Japan has removed its restric- tions in import of autos and Detroit stands to be the major beneficiary of the liberalized policy, Koichi Nichikawa, man- aging director of Chicago's Chi- cago Japan Trade Center said. Both value and tonnage of U. S. exports to Japan through the St. Lawrence Seaway may show a sharp increase as a result, he predicted. Nishikawa feels the manufac- turer of "big" high priced cars is more likely to benefit from the liberalized auto import pol- icies of his country than the maker of low-priced autos. The compact cars may have less appeal "because we make those in Japan." he said. "But companies might buy Cadillacs for the prestige where cost is no concern Nishikawa believes that in ad- dition to autos. the big oppor- tunities for U.S. manufacturers in Japan lie in heavy machin- ery1, construction machinery and in computers "Not many people know that pncewise. we import more el- ectronics items from the United States than we send to this Nishikawa said "It takes a tremendous number of transistor radios to offset one computer." Japan is the American farm- er's best customer, buying S554 million worth of agricultural products in this country in 1961 But though grain shipments through the St. Lawrence Sea- way to soy- rising. Nishikawa sees little chance that Midwest ports will become major grain shipping points to his country. "Most of the soybeans for Japan will go down the Missis- sippi and be shipped from New Orleans. Most of the wheat will continue to go to the Puget Sound area (Seattle, Wash.) be- cause of the distances involved in the St. Lawrence he said. He sees a rising demand in the Midwest for Japanese in- dustrial components (switches, gears, hydraulic equip- ment, measuring instruments and electronic components. Nishikawa said that all of the Chicago area manufacturers of radio, television and hi-fi sets are now using Japanese com- ponents.

Woodcock and the wo- man were charged with posses- sion of counterfeit currency James J Burke, special agent for the Secret Service in Detroit. i said about S120.000 in counter- feit S20 bills had been seized in recent months.
