    Meters Set
For Parking
By Campus
Parking meters will be installed
within the next 30 to 60 days in
the business district adjacent to
the campus it was learned yester
day from City Manager Oren King.
The action was recommended by
the University Civic Club, an or
ganization composed of business
men in the University area, to
facilitate a faster turnover in ve
hicle parking and permit patrons
a better chance to park near the
business houses.
Pending official approval of the
city council Monday night, 75 met
ers will be ordered at an approxi
mate cost of $75 each. The meters
will be set up for 30-minute and
one-hour parking depending on
the location.
They will be put on the business
side of 11th Avenue between Hil
yard and Alder, parts of Alder
between 11th and 13th, and along
13th in the Kincaid to Alder block.
Japan Requires
Normal Trade
States Matsui
By Mary Ann Delsman
The establishment of normal
trade connections with other na
tions is necessary for the economic
recovery of Japan, Dr. Schichiro
Matsui, Japanese economics pro
fessor, said in a lecture last night.
“The Japanese economy is based
on foreign trade,” he pointed out.
It is impossible for the nation to
raise enough food to maintain her
self because less than 20 per cent
of the land on the four islands
making up Japan is arable. Even
in a good year enough food is
raised to feed only 50 of the 80
► millions of people in Japan.
Dr. Matsui’s speech was the first
of the University Lecture Series
to be held this term. He was in
troduced by R. H. Ernst, chairman
of the University Lectures Com
mittee. Title of the speech was
“The New .Democracy in Japan.”
The speaker outlined the changes
made in Japan by the United
States occupation and discussed
their effects.
“General McArthur is considered
very conservative in the United
States, but in Japan he is con
sidered radical,” Dr. Matsui ex
"One of the important changes
produced by the occupation was
the adoption of a new constitution
which changed the status of the
emperor from a living god to a
mere symbol of state.
“The new constitution also pro
vided for the emancipation of
women which had far reaching
effects. It gave them the right to
vote, the right to own property,
and through this right to inherit
Another important change insti
tuted was the distribution of the
holdings of one company which be
fore the war controlled the mapori
ty of the national production.
