No Unanimity
"There is no unanimity of Qpin-
ion on the subject of reparations,"
Prof. Graf explained. One faction
favors maximum de-industrializa-
Aon and heavy war bills. The oth-
er faction, mindful of the chaos in
the Far East, points out that the
econcmy of that area may even-
tually depend upon a prosperous
He explains that stripping Ja-
pan of her industrial power would
endanger stability of the Far East
and so reduce living standards in
the country that radicalism and
political chaos may result.
"The Japanese are an energetic
people, capable of indescrible in-
dustry, discipline and sacrifice. If
driven to desepration by economic
restriction, they could constitute
a formidable satellite of radical;
groups in the Far East. Commu-
nism. breeds on human misery" he
said. '
Reparations Question
"Nothing can be done to restore
Japanese industry until the rep-1
arations question is settled," Prof.
Graf said. 'Once the extent of,
reparations is fixed, the Supreme:
Commander can transfer indus-
tries and equipment to the claim-i
ants and can begin conversion andi
reconstruction of the industry left
in Japan," he points out.
"Reconstruction and democra-
tization will not go forward until
the issue is settled. The Japanese
farmer or the Japanese workers
will have no foreseeable economic
security until he knows how much
he will have to work for repara-
tions and how much he can work
for himself."
