Prime Minister Eisaku Sato ask
the United States to move the air

Chief Cabinet Secretary To-

cabinet agrees, no formal request
will be made to U.S. authorities
until a number of alternate loca-
tions can be offered.
The U.S. Embassy declined to
comment until a formal request is
made by Sato.
Sources said the Japanese are
considering asking the United
States to share the Japanese air
bases, at Tsuiki or'Miyazaki, which
like Itazuke are on Kyushu, Ja-
pan's southern island.
