They are without work, food or homes. In this city of the size of furosha, as estimated by Police Inspector Motoshige Sa- kurai, is about 700 persons, sur- prisingly small. The furosha washes toward Ueno Park, which is comparable roughly with New York's Central Park or San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. Japanese police oc- casionally raid Ueno. In one three-day raid in April they took into custody 4C3 persons, includ- ing 176 children under 13 years of age. There's Hope For Some Most elements of the furosha sleep in parks, railway stations, subway depots and ruined build- ings. They try to work days. These anchorless vagabonds shine shoes, sell newspapers, do manual labor for occupation forces or as- sist black market operators. Some beg. "There is hope for those who said Sakurai. "For those who like their undisciplined life, there is no hope." Furosha is not a menace, al- though these drifting people are blamed for some of Tokyo's in- crease in petty crimes. More Petty Thefts Sakurai said there is a "great change" in the moral fiber of many slow crumbl- ing of their regard for the person- al property and belongings of others. He cited increased purse- snatching and petty thefts. Police graphs report Furosha is made up of war victims, those who lost their possessions in fire raids, 50 percent; demobilized soldiers returned to a nation that, neither receives them kindly nor aids them noticeably, 20 per cent; war orphans, 20 percent; repa- triates 5 per cent, and other un- fortunates, 5 percent. Don't Resent Americans Sakurai said the children, even the orphans, hold no resentment against Americans. "There are no werewolves in Japan." Nor does the Furosha resent Americans who do this sort of thing. j A Yank stood beside a haggard crone who was whining for food, money, clo'thing, anything. He scornfully scanned the crowd which made no move to share their possessions. Reaching into his pockets, he pulled out a handful of cigarettes and an English-Japanese dictionary. "One cigaret to everyone who gives this woman he faltered in twanging, American- accented Japanese. In a few moments, the woman's dirty, ragged kimono front held contributions of food and small denomination currency. The soldier laughed as he paid off.

Its backers, led by Rep. Dwight L. Rogers (D.-Fla.) and Robert L. Sikes (D.-Fla.) predicted its passage without opposition after a f'ew hours of debate and said t.he chances for oarly senate ap- proval "look good." The only amendment in sight was a non-controversial one in- tended to simplify payment mufhods. In preliminary form it w-juld permit enlisted men en- titled to terminal furlough mon- ey to claim it by mail, or collect il. in cash at local army or navy offices.

Sullivan from assistant to under secretary of the navy, also an- nounced by Mr. Truman in n single breath at his news con- ference late yesterday. Vinson's and Snydcr's selec- tions for two of the highest posts in the land came in for consider- able criticism, however, from republicans and from pro-labor, new deal democrats. But none indicated a. disposition to fight confirmation. All three nominees must receive senate approval be- fore they can take office.
