Moines MihaJo vich popular DCS Moines police patrolman suffered two broken bones in his right leg In the col lision of his motorcycle and a Yellow cab Thursday dence told the Japanese people Friday he would refuse to rearm this vanquished nation The 72 year old Yoshidas stand was viewed in some quarters as indicating that he would step out of office just as soon as the his toric U SJapan security pact is ratified becomes law He instructed his countrymen to keep faith with the western world Yoshida made his remarks at s news conference only 3 hours aft er he returned from San Francisco where he saw Japan once again take its place among the nations the world Yoshida was asked point blank whether Japan would have to re arm after the security pact goes into effect Yoshida answered in almost in audible tones An Associated Press Japanese reporter said he heard Yoshida The Japanese news agency Ky odo quoted Yoshida as saying I am not thinking to rearm Other translations varied But the inference was clear The tough suave Yoshida would not personally see to it that guns were put back into the hands of his fellow countrymen Political observers have predict ed for some time that Yoshida will resign in favor of Ichiro Hatoyama founder of the liberal party who was depurged recently Yoshida gave these words of guidance What I would especially like to request of the Japanese people at this time is their awareness of the fact that the greater the ex pectations placed in us the greater our responsibility We must not betray the hopes placed in us by other nations We must of course abide faithfully by the terms of the peace treaty We must also democratize our nation to the fullest extent deepen our understanding with other Thats up to Japan But as far I as I am concerned
