AFTER JAPANESE ELECTION:
Ikeda Sees End of Socialis
TOKYO W)-Elated by the na-
tional election victory of his con-
servatives, Prime Minister Hay-
ato Ikeda took the position yes-
terday that Japanese voters have
buried Socialist neutralism.
The leader of the liberal Dem-
ocrats told reporters he hopes to
meet in Washington with Presi-
dent-elect John F. Kennedy. But
that probably will be next year.
Ikeda and his party pitched
their campaign squarely on the
new security treaty with the Unit-
ed States-violently opposed by
the Socialists-and prosperity at
Official returns from Sunday's
parliamentary elections gave the
Liberal Democrats 296 seats in
the 467-seat House of Represen-
tatives, a gain of 13; the Social-
ists 145, a gain of 23; the middle
road Democratic Socialists 17, a
loss of 23, and the Communists 3,
a gain of two. Independent got 5
and the Agrarian Party 1.
Cheerful and relaxed, Ikeda
told a news conference that the
vote proves the Japanese people
support the new security treaty
with the United States.

added, "the issue has been settled
and is now closed."
The Diet, or Parliament, was
dissolved and the general election
was called to ask for a mandate
on the pact, which provides Unit-
ed States forces baees in Japan
for atleast 10 more years.
Of a possible meeting with
Kennedy, Ikeda had this to say:
"I have many friends in the
Vnited States, many of them

ty. I would like to visit the new

gains than expected. Most of their
votes came from the cities and
