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.

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.” JAPAN CHANGES OUTLINED 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 plained. "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. EMANCIPATION PROVIDED “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 property. 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.
