THE PEACE palace has seen as
many chiefs of state as any build-
ing in the world. Just the other
day, a few men walked into the
stone structure and came up with
the historic Iranian oil decision.
Aside from the palace, which
symbolism compels you to at
least get a glimpse of, The Ha-
gue can't claim the impressive-
ness of Washington, D. C. It is
a pleasant, shaded town with a
number of old buildings.
But age gets to be old stuff af-
ter a few weeks in Europe.
Main purpose of our visit here
was to pay social calls on the
American ambassador, the Mutual
Security chief and the Dutch For-
eign Minister.
AMBASSADOR Selden Chapin,
who holds the politically perilous
job of a foreign representative, has
headquarters in building owned by
a large American oil company. We
had only a brief appointment with
him and found him to be extre-
mely cordial and very much in
love with The Netherlands. -

IN HOLLAND, everybody rides

cars own bicycles too. It's econo-

you can control your car and
you just ignore them.
The bicycle is used for every-
thing, including dates. It's a com-

along, or even undertaking more
involved grappling in their pre-

Owen Cleary
LANSING--W)--Fred M. Alger,
jr., Republican gubernatorial no-
minee, yesterday denied he had
any objections to Owen J. Cleary's
remaining as chairman of the
State Central Committee if he is
nominated for Secretary of State.
At the same time Alger en-
dorsed Cleary for the nomination.

ALGER, THE present Secretary
of State, had been reported as ob-
jecting to Cleary's holding the two
jobs. A new state chairman is not
elected until spring, but Cleary
seemed to have the inside track
for the secretaryship nomination
at the State Republican Conven-
tion Aug. 16.
The two met yesterday and
Alger issued a statement "urg-
ing his (Cleary's) nomination as
Secretary of State at the Re-
publican Convention in Grand
Rapids." ,
The statement said Alger was
"sure any questions about the
state chairmanship will be resolved
for the best interests of the Re-
publican party."

IN AN INTERVIEW, he ampli-
fied this by saying he would leave
the decision about Cleary's future
as state chairman to the State
Central Committee.

party nominee for, senator, and
State Senator Clarence A. Reid,
lieutenant governor nominee,
met today with officers of the
central committee to map pre-

A statement, issued following the
closed meeting, said no final de-
cision was made on how much
should be spent.
Cleary said, however, that "ex-
tensive use will be made of news-
papers, radio and television."

Still Getting
Back on Feet
By The Associated Press
HIROSHIMA, Japan (P)- This
southwestern Japanese city - the
first populated area to be blasted
by the atomic weapon-is getting
back on its feet after seven long
years, but much remains to be
Seven years ago Aug. 6 the city
was flattened and burned, with
nearly half its 343,000 population
dead or dying. Today it has more
than 300,000 inhabitants and
most of its structures have been
replaced by new buildings.
DOWNTOWN Hiroshima buzzes
with business activity. Scores of
amusement places draw capacity
crowds. The city's people seem to
be happy and robust, but most ap-
pear to be poor.. Many of the new
homes and business establishments
are only flimsy, jerry-built shacks.
The well-built, imposing new
buildings which Hiroshima
boasts were partly or largely fi-
nanced by outside funds-in-
eluding considerable donations
from the United States. But the
roads and sewage system are in
bad shape. The city government
caijnot afford to fix them.
Hiroshima is situated in south-
western Honshu, Japan's main is-
land, and is on the delta of the
Ota River. The delta divides the
city into six islands which are con-
nected by 81 bridges.

THE INCREASE in population
since the closing days of World
War II does not mean there is a
big demand for manpower. It's a
situation common to all Japanese
cities. The average Japanese farm-
er, with only one acre to till, sends
his second and third sons or
daughters off to the city to seek
Many people here are Japanese
government employes or mer-
chants catering to them.
Communist influence in Hir-
oshima seems to be minor, des-
pite strong efforts by the Reds
to' make propaganda out of the
atomic attack.
A Communist artist held an ex-
hibit here last year with paintings
of "A-bomb atrocities" but only
a few people showed up. Those who
did go to see it said the paintings
did not depict the facts.
Another artist, Yoshiro Fu-
kui, one of the survivors of the
atomic blast, now is trying to
captua e on canvas :us impres-
sibns of that unforgttah t Au-
gust seven years ago.
Fukui, a sergeant in the Army
Medical Corps, said the blast
pinned him beneath a beam in an
army barracks. He described the

Red China Reports Economic Advance

By The Associated Press
N. reports indicate important eco-
nomic advances are being made
in Red China despite the partici-
pation of the Chinese Communists
in the Korean War.
This information comes mostly
from official Peiping sources, but
it is generally accepted both by
U.N. economists and by Chinese

zens Research Council, recom-

state's "vast network of airports
and its outstanding safety record"
as proving the good work of the

trial production in Communist
China by thte end of 1951 had
reached or excelled previous peak
year levels in many industries.
A Soviet economist told the
U.N. Economic and Social Coun-
cil that Red China last year had
a favorable balance of trade for
the first time in 79 years.
With regard to the Soviet state-
ment, it should be pointed out
that despite the favorable figures
there has been a sharp change in
the trade of Communist China
both as to composition and direc-
tion. Because of the western boy-
cott, many vital items are not
available to the Peiping regime at
There is no doubt, however, that
Chinese Communists have been
able to increase the total volume
of their trade by rapidly increas-
ing the flow of goods to and from
Russia and other Red satellites.
* * S
U.N. ECONOMISTS attribute
the gains to several factors. First,
there has been a sharp rise in
employment (recent visitors from
India indicated much of this, was
slave labor); secondly, the Peip-
ing government concentrated on
importing critical raw materials,
fuel and machine parts. In 1950,
nearly 80 per cent of the total

Imports consisted of machinery
and scarce industrial raw mater-
ials, while prewar imports had
consisted mainly of consumption
Apart from the increases in
trade and production, two other
important economic changes
continued to develop insile

alization program for industry
and the land redistribution pro-
U.N. economists say that by the
niddle of 1951 the Peiping gov-
ernment owned and operated
about one-half the total industrial
capacity of the China mainland.
By the spring of 1951, they say,
the land redistribution had been
carried out in areas embracing
more than two-thirds of the total
rural population.

mine the broad pattern of produc-

in the whole economy.
