Ohira dies
at age 70

TOKYO (AP)-Japanese Prime Minister Masayo-
shi Ohira died early this morning of a heart attack, 12
days after he was hospitalized complaining of
fatigue. He was 70.
Ohira's condition began to deteriorate at about 2
a.m. (1 p.m. EDT yesterday), a hospital spokesman
said, and Japan's prime minister since 1978 died at
about 4 p.m. EDT.
WITH OHIRA'S passing, Cabinet Secretary
Masayoshi Ito became acting prime minister. He will
serve in the caretaker post until the new Diet, or
Parliament, is chosen June 22 in previously called
elections. Then the new members of both houses of
Parliament will select a new prime minister.
Because of the relative strength and stability of
Japan's bureaucracy, Ohira's death was not expec-
ted to have a major effect on the day-to-day workings
of the government. But the upcoming elections take

on greater importange since the new Parliament will
pick Japan's new leader.
In Washington, President Carter said Ohira's death
was "tragic for all of us." He said Ohira was "a fine
leader" and "a very close friend of mine. We have
already sent condolences to his family."
CARTER SAID HE did not think he would attend
the funeral, however. The president is scheduled to
leave Wasington for a state visit to Rome on June 19.
Ito said at a news conference 90 minutes after
Ohira's death that the prime minister "was said to be
in good condition until late last night, but at around
2:25 a.m. (1:25p.m. EDT yesterday), his condition
deteriorated badly.
