Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 22, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat., June 22, 1974 tHbrtV^ ^ Emperor Should Have Quit After War, Japanese Politician Says TOKYO (AP) — Japanese democracy might be working better today if Emperor Hirohito had abdicated or been executed after World war ll, according to one of Japan’s best-known political and literary figures. Writing in the magazine Jiyu, Shintaro Ishihara deplores what he calls the rootlessness of Japanese society and asserts that one reason for it is the failure to establish the emperor's responsibility for the war The United States refused to try Hirohito along with other Japanese wartime leaders, reasoning that the emperor was a stabilizing and unifying factor in the country. Stabilized, but. . . Ishihara concedes that the move “certainly stabilized postwar Japanese society.” But he argues that the emperor “lost the place he occupied in Theater Times for Saturday COMMUNITY THEATER -“The Effects of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" - 8.

Ishihara said this would have given Japan a stronger sense of solidarity and strengthened the imperial system Fame as Nave list At 41, Ishihara continues to pelt the establishment with the same vehemence that brought “HARVEY SCALES AND THE I SOUND’’ will be at LAZY LEOPARD LOUNGE THURS., FRI., SAT. 321.9th Ave. S.E. him overnight fame in 1958 as a novelist.

But this has not prevented speculation that the Liberal-Demoerats will ask Ishihara to oppose Ryokichi Minobe, the veteran Socialist governor of Tokyo, in the local election next year. Ishihara denies that he is an ultra-rightist He is searching. he says, for an ethical code on which Japan can build a new morality. He argues that there is a vacuum at the center of the Japanese spirit hidden by the ‘‘emperor cult’’ and the "illusion" of democracy. He says Prime Minister Tanaka is “the very symbol of the indisputable devastation and confusion’’ that marks Japan at home and abroad Tanaka dreams of continuing the century of industrialization begun in the mid 19th Century and does not recognize the chaos in Japanese society, Ishihara asserts. “Atlanta” don't miss ★ TONIGHT! coming no uweekt “Headstone” Dance Mar Prefer Jail LONDON (CPI) - Last year    Officials    announced    an    inves- 788 convicts In British jails    ligation    to    *    * refused to be considered for    prisoners    preferred    to slav parole, the home office said    jail. :es are standing up WALKING t TALL “BEST AMERICAN MOVIE OF THE year:’ ■tolling Stun* COLOM “A DEEPLY MOVING TRUE STORY!” * Ne. 3 - COMEDY!
