For several minutes, the Asian leader who had lived in Washington for many years, lauded Brown's work. “Your ability to foretell coming events which really happen is amazing.” Rhee said. As the Star Office settled down to normal with Rhee's departure, his colleagues reminded Brown he had once before received the Korean Leader’s applause in more tangible form—a letter in longhand. Tuis, coupled with the conversation of a few minutes before, would make up an important page in his memoirs, the columnist was r»-minded. Brown agreed, then sorrowfully admitted the facts:    The    letter might be an important document if he hadn't lost it. British Now Face One Of History's Biggest Moving Jobs In Taking Troops, Equipment Out Of Suez Zone CAIRO »NANA» — The polite agreement which ended Britain’s 172-year-old hold on the Suez Canal gives England one of the biggest military moving jobs in Empire history. An air. auto and foot tour in 108-degree heat unfolds the immensity of that physical task alone. However heavy the political implications. they are not so discernible. Almost all the installations in the 100-mile-long. 30-to-50-mile - wide facility are relics of World War II. West Virginians To Get Cooler Weather HUNTINGTON. Aug. 3 OB—The Weather Bureau today predicted a cool spell, with one-quarter to one-half inch of rain for West Virginia the rest of this week. Temperatures are expected to drop after rains Thursday. The normal West Virginia temperatures at this period average 74 degrees in the northern portion, and 75 in the south. ♦ , TYPEWRITERS REPAIRED And cleaned by experienced mechanics.

There has been a steady build-up of men and stores since Egypt abrogated the Anglo-Egyptian treaty in 1951. This week’s agreement found some of Britain's best combat outfits among the 80.000 troops in the area. Briefing officers showed a supply reserve depot containing stores of dehydrated foodstuffs which would last the 80.000 for nine months. The officers mentioned various ways in which the big ¡Suez base ranks as the biggest in Britain’s military effort. In the center of the zone at Tele-kebir, only British vehicle depot in the Middle East, is the principal workshop for the entire zone and one of two ordnance depots. Here r.lone are 10,000 troops and 5.000 Egyptian laborers. There are 70 sheds providing 2.000.000 square feet of covered storage space. The sue is hard gravel and one that could be expanded to almost any size. Barbed wire rings it. with a no-man s-land strip of mine fields, searchlights, armed guards and oolice dogs standing constant guard. For the last few months, as negotiations approached agreement, there has been less tension in the field. Most of Ismailia has been out of bounds to British forces and no British military from the zone has been allowed to Cairo for a month. British evacuation of the base inevitably poses the colossal question of maintenance. Obviously the removal of 80.000 troops would reduce housekeeping needs. Much of the equipment, as well as personnel, likely will be deployed elsewhere—Cyprus. Cyrenaica, East Africa. Aden and Iraq. Maj. Gen. J. B Churcher commanding British troops in Egypt. caid he believed 4,000 technicians and local 1 \boi could maintain what would be left of the base * if cooperation and responsibility are demonstrated.” How To Hold FALSE TEETH More Firmly in Placo Do you: fals* tfeth annoy and am* barrai« bv slipping, dropping or wobbling when you rat, lau^'n or talk?

"Buddhism has a contribution to make to the West.” Ogata suggested. the day we drove from Kvoto down to Osaka. “What can Americans learn from Asians?” we asked. “Well, a deep awareness of the meaning and purpose of life. Western civilization relies too much on science and mechanics. Americans seem to think they can get satisfaction in this life through material things.” Ogata's smile was gone now. He was intensely serious The earnestness of his religious feeling shone in his eyes. Asians believe that we must take time to free ourselves from! things, and experience spiritual being by concentration of    oar minds on the things that    are[ unseen.” But Ogata, too oversimplified the difference between Asian.» and the West. Buddhists. Shintoism,    and Hindus, we notice are    like Americans in many ways. They,' want more take-home pay and the progress a higher standard of living will give. Hoveover, understanding a leli-gion in Japan is complicated by all the differences of sects. Beiieve it or not. there are 900 sects of Shintoism! Three hundred denominations of Buddhists are competing in a friendly way. There is a complete tolerance, but tough going for the 300.000 Protestants and 200.000 Catholics in Japan. I The Roman Catholics are doing a splendid educational job with schools and two colleges of high standard. Doshisha University in Kyoto is a Protestant-supported university with 11.000 college students and 6.000 preparatory. Th* New International Christian University is now opening a glorious plant, an hour's drive from Tokyo, supported by the National Council of Churches in the United States. Two hundred Jewish families live near Tokyo. There is a story of a lost tribe of Jews which came across Asia and is supposed to have married into Japanese life and disappeared 1.5Q0 years ago.
