Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Jcrturday, Stpttmbir M, THE IETHBRIDGE HERAIO 17 1972 FORD FTD Nixon, Hirohito to meet in historic Alaska talk President Nixon meets Em- peror Hirohito in Alaska this weekend in a gesture of U.S.- Japanese friendship. A week later, a book will appear in the United States, packing a wallop that does violence to Japan's sensitivity about its ruler. The book claims that a wide- ly-accepted image of Hirohito as a ruler pushed by militarists Into war against his will was created by deliberate fraud as a device to protect the imperial house when defeat in the Second World War was imminent. The author, seeking to shatter "the devout silence which makes conspirators of all who enter the service of the pictures Hirohito as having a major role in planning all Japa- nese war moves since the early 1930s and in plotting the 1941 sneak attack on Pearl Harbor which plunged the United States into the war. Japan's Imperial Conspiracy, by David Bergamini, a journal- ist and Rhodes scholar, will be published by William Morrow and Co. The Japanese know about the book but are not com- menting on its quarrel with those Japanese historians who insist Hirohito had no part in developing Japanese militarism. Under a post-war constitution imposed by the U.S. occupation, Hirohito no longer claims divine status and has been reduced from absolute to constitutional monarch. But Japanese regard him with reverence as the reli- gious head and symbol of the nation, and the book seems bound to create a stir. Bergamini suggests that Hi- rohito should have topped the of those tried for war Presiding over it all, claims Bergamini, was a slim, bespec- tacled modern-day Caesar whose Gaul was Asia co-prosperity sphere" in- tended to stretch from Iran to Hawaii, from Manchuria to Aus- tralia. The book is so impres- sively documented from sources said to have been hitherto inac- cessible, and so plausibly laid out, that it seems sure to com- mand an attentive audience. Bergamini says Hirohito's chief collaborators in the plan- ning were members of an "im- perial cabal" who met under heavy security in a building on the palace grounds beginning as far back as 50 years ago.

Arm- strong, president of Imperial Oil Ltd. said yesterday the com- pany will spend at least mil- lion on exploration and drilling in the Arctic and off the east coast of Canada by the end of 1972. Mr. Armstrong told the To- ronto Society of Financial Ana- lysts about million will be spent this winter drilling II new wells in the Mackenzie Kiver delta in the north, increasing the number of rigs in the area to five from three. He said another million trill be spent on exploration and drilling on Arctic islands in a joint project with Panarctic Oils Ltd. between this fall and the end of 1972.

(CP) The Canadian Press erroneously reported Wednesday that the Chisholm Lacrosse Manufactur- ing Co. Ltd. had closed down, putting 110 persons out of work. Colin Chisholm, part-owner of the plant, said the firm has only closed for a couple of weeks. Not all employees will be taken back when the plant reopens, said Mr. Chisholm, but he could not estimate how many would be affected. "We just closed down for a couple of weeks until we gel some distribution problems ir the United States straightened he said.

It is a story of cruel "fake" wars, staged provoca- tions, purges, spying, palace-in- spired assassinations, im- mensely complicated plots and, above all, of slaughter of a mind-boggling scale. in 1946 and 1947. Here, if any- where, was hatched the 'crimi- nal conspiracy' of which Ja- pan's war leaders.with the ex- ception of Hirohito, were judged guilty. Here only were all the Japanese 'criminals' together in one place at one time to 'con- spire.'
