In speaking of the reconstructionI
work and future of the country Cap-
tain Iinamura said, "Although we
have suffered great losses we will see
a new Japan arise out of the chaos of
destruction. We will now have to
build from the beginning. Everything
will be modern and it will change the
country intb a more advanced state."
During, the sumnmer Captain Imia-
itiurai made a tour of the Ford factor-
1 es in Detroit. He said that they were
the lIargest- manu~factu1ring plants he
had ever seen next to the Japaneso
armny arsenal in Tokio. This building, !
he said, contained the majority of
supplies and ordinance for the army,
all of which were destroyed.
His estimates of the time neces-,
sary for Japan to -re~cover from the I
earthquake disaster are three years I

to light.;kAnd so Wednesday night he
reported the loss to the police and
asked their aid in locating his wan-
dering domicile.
fThe room was located somewhere RM- V E
on, east Ann or East Huron or some -
thing like that, he remembered, but
that wvas -all. The police placed him RM d~
in temporary lodgings and started out.
Now Bamn has got the room all becat-
ed and placed. He refuses to be lost:
