"FOR THE first time in history
we are trying to educate all the
people," he said at the luncheon
session of the conference. "A cross-
section of America, with wide var-

economic backgrounds, is going
through our schools."
"We will have to forget about
norms and levels of achievements
in our high schools and take boys
and girls the way they are, if we
don't want to reject from our
school those who don't come up to
academic standards," he asserted.
Dean Hayward Keniston of the
literary college, told high school
teachers attending the luncheon
that they should be as concerned
about students who do not in-
tend to go on to college as about
those who do.

Backing the soft peace treatyI
for Japan, Prof. Robert E. Wardl
of the political science department
said yesterday that harsher terms
would be disastrous to Japan's

the economic controls and repara-

her to survive economically," Prof.

THE UNITED STATES has
pumped over two billion dollars in-
to Japan since the war and will
have to continue to pour money
into the country if it is to remain
free from Communist domination,
according to Prof. Ward.
"We are in a dreadful interna-
tional position and need bases
and friends in the Far East,"
he said. "We want the Japanese
to provide this setup by their
own free will; we can't afford to
Prof. Ward, assistant director of
the University's Japanese Center,
said that most Japanese are an-
xiously looking forward to the
September signing of the long-
delayed treaty and are eagerly
awaiting removal of the United
Nations occupational forces.
The big stumbling block is Rus-
sia's absence from the treaty talks,
Prof. Ward noted. Russia and Ja-
pan will still legally be at war af-
ter the treaty is signed and Rus-
sia could legally attack and occupy
Japan sometime in the future.
Another hitch in the treaty is
Okinawa, he commented. He said
the United States wants to keep it
as a military base, while the Ja-
panese feel that it should be re-
turned to them.
"THE REARMAMENT problem
is an embarassing question," Prof.
Ward said. "Gen. MacArthur in-
serted a clause in the Japanese
constitution which made it illegal
for the Japanese to support a
standing army. However, the situ-
ation has changed since then and
now it's imperative that they be
able to defend themselves."
He said it was doubtful if the
constitution could be amended,
because it would be impossible
to get an assenting popular vote.
The people are definitely opposed
to rearming because of the tre-
mendous devastation they suf-
fered in the last war.
Serving as field director of the
University graduate training cen-
ter in Okayana last year, Prof.
Ward observed that "practically
all enlightened Japanese are pes-
simistic about the future of their
country. The problems of over-po-
pulation and a lack of trade seem
to be insoluble."
"It's impossible to predict Ja-
pan's future accurately," he con-
cluded, "but, with the aid of a soft
treaty and a favorable policy by
the United States, she may sur-
