Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 1972 FORD FTD Nixon, Hirohito to meet in historic Alaska talk President Nixon meefs Em- peror Hirohito in Alaska this weekend in a gesture of U.S.- JapaDese friendship. A week Jater, 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 lo protect the imperial house when defeat in the Second World War was imminent. The author, seeking lo shatter "tire devout silence which makes conspirators of all who enter the service of the pictures Hirohilo 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 Hirohilo had no part in developing Japanese militarism. Under a post-war constitution imposed hy the U.S. occupation, Hirohjto no longer claims divine status and has been reduced from absolute to constitutional Presiding over it all, claims Bergamini, was a slim, bespec- tacled modern-day Caesar whose Gaul was "Greater East 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 lo com- mand an attentive audience. Bergamini says Hirohilo's monarch But Japanese regard hj r in thc plan_ him with reverence as the reh-1 gious head and symbol of the >n? n-erc members of an im- I nation, and the book seems' Pcrial cabal who me "nder bound to create a stir.

Arm- strong, president of Imperial Oil Lid. said yesterday the com- pany will spend at least 546 mil- lion on exploration and drilling in the Arctic and off the east coast of Canada by 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 get some distribution problems in the United States straightened he said. He did not say when the plant would reopen.

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.
