The two sides are expected i shortly to resume negotiations B Washington and on aa Ameri- can demand for restraint in apanese non-cotton textile ex- NrU the rapid growth oi which re said to be damaging the U.S. domestic industry. Premier Eaata Sato told news conference that he deadlock must be settled in spirit of give and take. Tex- tiles, only a small part of the general trade picture, must not be allowed to sour relations elsewhere, he said. Both nave talked omi- nously at times in terms of a trade war that could spread until it damaged worldwide free trade. Failure of the U.S. Con- gress to pass a trade quota bill eased tbe pressure, but collapse of the textile talks could quickly revive such fears. Japan's tough attitude in the textiles negotiations is sympto- matic of the new Japanese ati- tude to the world at large. Japan in 1970 continued to emerge slowly from its shell to take a larger role in world af- fairs. Its highly protected do- mestic industries were grad- ually forced to face interna- tional competition by the re- moval of trade and financial re- strictions. In April, 1971, the important car industry-eagerly eyed by tbe American ba opened up for foreign capital In- vestment although, as with most other liberalization moves so far enough restrictions remain to prevent any foreign domina- tion of a Japanese firm. Such protectionism has en- couraged tbe Japanese economy to grow at a staggering pace. Foreign capital contin- ued to set new recordi every month, along with tbe gross na- tional product and the over-all an economic slow- down' is'expeded, with growth in real terms aet at a mere 10 per cent. Japanese and foreign experts predict that some time in 1971 the yen must be revalued up- ward Some estimates place tbe revaluation at between 10 and 30 per cent Meanwhile, tbe average Japa- nese hopes more of his wealth will Oow to him in tbe coming year Housing, roads and public utilities lag far behind demand and a sudden public outcry against environmental pollution has forced government and in- dustry to take a new view of Ja- pan's longstanding program of economic development In the last days of the year, alcoholics join AA in year NEW YORK The increas- steadily over ing number of Alcoholics Anon- parliament armed the govern- ment with tough new powers to set environmental standards for industry and punish transgres- sors Politically, tbe conservative government of Sato remains firmly in power, since a general election 12 months ago, the gov- erning Liberal Democrats have had a solid parliamentary ma- joiity ymous groups throughout .the world reflects a growing rec- ognition of alcoholism as a ma- jor disease, coupled with a greater willingness on the part of its victims to seek help, Dr. John L. Norris, non-alcoholic chairman of the board of trus- tees of AA, said here. In issuing AA's annual re- port to the public, Dr. Norris, who is former associate medical director of Eastman Kodak Com- pany, said that the number of AA groups throughout the world had increased from about 000 in 1959 to nearly this year. There is no practical way to make an exact count, be said but total AA membership is now estimated at more than men and women in 92 countries, compared with 425, 000 in 1969. The continuing growth of AA throughout the world is reflect ed by tbe 145 individual groups and estimated members in Alberta. There are an estimated alcoholic in Alberta. Lethbridge has six AA groups and there are sev eral others in the district. "According to a recent sur vey the average age of new AA members has been decreasing Dr. (Otri said, noting that this in- dicates that young people to- gy are quicker to detect and something about an al- coholic problem were in the.past. than they "Another in- icator is the increased num- her of young people's AA groups in the United States and he said. Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who maintain their own sobriety by helping other al- coholics to recover. AA groups are local units in varicus towns, cities and countries throughout the world. Each group is self-supporting and self-governing. They share ex- perience with each other through the General Service Office in New York.
