specific rules mechanically ap-
plied by the courts. But Prof.
Harvey pointed out that dis-
cretion in the administration
of law is inevitable. Under this
English view, according to Prof.
Harvey, "rule by the law alone
comes close to meaning rule by
the judges alone." x
Moving on to the second
basic theory, the professor said
procedural safeguards alone
cannotdguarantee the "rule of
law." The American tradition
of due process of law basically
includes: the right to a mean-
ingful day in court; fully in-
dependent deciding officers;
and day-to-day decisions ra-
tionalized in terms of both gen-
eral principle and the demands
of the particular situation.
To illustrate the error of
equating the 'rule of law" with
fair procedures, Prof. Harvey cited recent treason trials in
South Africa.
There, he said, the excellent judicial system could not
override the flaws in basic laws enacted by the National As-
sembly and, thus, justice was thwarted. Summing up this point,
Prof. Harvey said:
"If the 'rule of law' is a concept fully adequate to the needs
of men in defining their relations to civil government, it can-
not focus entirely on one manifestation of governmental power.
It must comprehend the legislature and the executive, as well
as the courts."
Prof. Harvey also said natural law principles have not pro-
vided an adequate foundation for the "rule of law." He said
that while the ancient belief in a law of nature and reason has
often been a rallying point in the fight for human dignity, it
has at other times "served as a shield and buckler for those
who resisted the felt needs of their times in blindness to the
vision of a better tomorrow."
In further criticism of the natural law analysis, Prof. Har-
vey said natural law thinkers have failed to agree on the con-
tent of supra-mundane norms.
He also commented that "it is a regrettably short step from
insistence that nothing is law unless it is right to the conclusion
that whatever is law, in terms
of legal enactment or declara-
tion, is therefore right."
In discussing the reasons for
v analyzing the "rule of law" in
s the first place, Prof. Harvey
"In a technological, complex
~'~' >#.society like that in which we
live, it isunthinkable to reduce
governmental authority and
the administration of justice
to the elemental level of pre-
serving the public peace.

Left- Wing -*Protersts,
JapOanese Treaty
TOKYO 4,P)-Emperor Hirohito gave the official imperial ap-
proval to the bitterly controversial United States-Japanese Security
Treaty immediately after Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi's cabinet
gave it final approval, while thousands of left-wing demonstrators
participated in crippling strikes.

Anti-Western Riots
Mis judged'-erter
ate last night delayed until today
a vote on ratifying the new United
States-Japanese defense treaty.
The decision to put it off came
after hours of debate with only a'
few voices raised in opposition to
some of its provisions.
Secretary of State- Christian A.
Herter, appearing before a Senate
committee yesterday nmorning, had
urged speedy ratification.
Running into a barrage of ques-
tions about the riotous situation
in Japan which caused cancella-
tion of the invitation to President
Eisenhower to visit there, Herter
said "we misjudged" how unre-
lenting the rioting would be.
He said the State Department
didn't expect the rioting to be so
long drawn out or the mobs to be
of such great magnitude.
But Herter replied "no" when
asked if his day-to-day informa-
tion about the riots was poor. He
added that perhaps the informa-
tion was not evaluted properly,
Discusses Budget
Herter appeared before the Ap-
propriations Subcommittee to dis-
cuss his department's annual
The.Senate debated the treaty
for six and a half hours.
At the request of Majority Lead-
er Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex),
the Senate agreed to permit a half
hour's additional debate on the
treaty today.
The time limit on today's debate
will go into effect after the Senate
completes the customary opening
routine transactions.
Although debate on the pact
dragged on for about seven hours
yesterday, there was no evidence
of concerted opposition.
Appears Assured
Ratification appeared assured,
although some senators expressed
doubt about some provisions.
Senate ratification would leave
only two steps to put the treaty
into effect: President Dwight D.
Eisenhower's signature on the
ratification and an exchange of
documents between Japan and the
United States.
The pact has touched off day
after day of left wing rioting in
Tokyo-violence which forced can-
cellation of Eisenhower's visit to
Japan this week.
Provides Protection
The treaty, which replaces one
now in effect, provides Japan with
United States protection under
more favorable conditions for it-
self over at least the next 10 years.
It also will permit United States
bases to remain on Japanese soil.
Sen. J. William Fulbright (D-
Ark.), chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee,
opened the debate on the treaty by
expressing hope that Japan's
democratic institutions "will suf-
fer no permanent damage" for
what he called obstructionist tac-
ties of a fraction of its people.

Nikita Khrushchev said yesterday
American spy planes photographed
areas in the Soviet Union where
there are no strategic rocket bases.

flights is of no importance for

The Russian leader, speaking
at the Romanian Party Congress
in Bucharest, said:
"We know that two or three
years ago the (Americans) photo-

"The process of conversion can be found in most religions, but
the unique factor of Zen conversion is that it contains a methodol-
ogy," Prof. Koji Sato observed yesterday.
The psychology professor at Kyoto University in Japan lectured
on the topic "Zen and Psychology." He drew a basic analogy of a
bucket without a bottom, which loses its contents, but also permits
things to enter from the bottom. Losing the bottom is like losing one's
self-defense or ego, he explained.
A person accomplishes this by learning of himself, which in tuin
means to forget himself. It is a quest for the ultimate reality; thus
Zen is a rational and scientific conversion, as opposed to a mystical
