TOKYO (AP) - Secretary of
State James Baker arrived in Japan
yesterday, less than a week after a
new government took office, to con-
fer with leaders pledging to fashion
a more aggressive global role for
their economically powerful coun-
try including ending its ban on send-
ing troops overseas.
Prime Minister Kiichi
Miyazawa is pressing the Japanese
parliament to lift the ban on send-
ing Japanese forces outside its bor-
der, in place since the end of World
War II, but is mindful of possible
international reaction.
He emphasized in a speech three
days after taking office that he re-
mains committed "to an exclu-
sively defensive posture and not be-
coming a military power such as
might threaten other countries."
During the first eight months of
1991, Japan accounted for 67 percent
of the U.S. trade deficit of nearly
$40 billion.
"We have a clear problem with
Japan," said House Majority Leader
Richard Gephardt (D-Mo.) last
week when he introduced legisla-
tion to toughen procedures for re-
sponding to countries that have
large trade surpluses with the
United States at the same time they

Magic Johnson proved he is still on top this weekend, flashing the same hopeful smile on the front of local and
national newspapers all over the country.
Jo gCvisits Detroit
with a 'Magc sermon


DETROIT (AP) - The Rev.
Jesse Jackson told churchgoers
yesterday that the searing news of
Magic Johnson's infection with
the AIDS virus will serve a unify-
ing and healing role in America.
"Magic Johnson is making the
transition from thrilling us to
healing us," Jackson said. "His
powerful body is the instrument
of the healing. His prominence
puts light and heat in a cold and
dark place."
Jackson offered an often thun-
derous sermon at Detroit's
Hartford Memorial Baptist
Church that several times
brought the congregation to its
feet with shouts of "Yes!" and
Jackson is in Detroit to address
the national AFL-CIO convention
this week.
"I just wanted to share because
we are all in search of the appro-
priate response to our agony,"
Jackson said to about 350 people

at the sunrise service.
He said he also planned to
speak about Johnson and AIDS
today with students at Detroit
Northern High School.
"Magic Johnson has gone from
saving ball games to saving
lives," Jackson said of the Lakers
star's decision to go public with
his infection to educate others
about the deadly disease.
"His announcement was like a
hole had been shot through our
souls," Jackson said. "It was a
dramatic way to get the nation's
attention, to get the world's at-
In Johnson's hometown of
Lansing yesterday, a standing-
room-only crowd packed into
Union Missionary Baptist
Church, the church where Magic
attends services when he's in
town. The Rev. Melvin Jones said
Johnson's decision to speak about
AIDS elevates him to the level of
a saint.

"He's sought public under-
standing and forgiveness, and now
he will seek redemption through
service," Jackson said. "That's all
God would have us do."
Many AIDS experts have said
Magic's announcement has done
more than any event of the last
decade to change American atti-
tudes toward AIDS. Johnson has
admitted he acquired the virus
through promiscuous heterosex-
ual sex.
To change sexual behavior, par-
ents must teach children about
sexuality, Jackson said.
"Teach your child at the point
of curiosity, when they ask
'Mommy, what is this?' 'Daddy,
what is this?' 'What makes me
different from sister or me from
brother?' Teach!" Jackson
shouted. "There is no safety in ig-
"We're trying to find a way to
seize this Magic moment," he
said. "We're trying to find a way
to turn our midnight into day."

"The next thing we heard was an
officer knocking on the door to tell
us that our son had been killed in ac-
tion," he said.
"As I stand here," he continued,
"I must confess mixed emotions -
a deep and lasting grief, but also a
deep pride to think that our son
thought enough of his county to
make the ultimate sacrifice."

this strength, he's going to try to

Members of the audience said
they were very impressed with
Smith's speech.
"The speech was very informa-
tive and so current that it was unbe-
lievable," said Lillian Woodard, a
member of the Waterman alumni
group. "Smith gives us so much to
think about regarding our responsi-
bility as Americans."
