Toido). Among the subjects for con
sideration at the next session of the
diet is one covered in a petition from
Japanese residents in the Unitad
States, which asks for the amendment
of the new regulations governing them
as promulgated last year and put into
effect in April.
The Japanese authorities last year
revised the regulations to extend the
age limit for the exemption from con
scription of Japanese residents abroad
from 32to 37 years, and to shorten tne
maximum period during which they
could stay in Japan without being sub
iect to call from six months to one
month. The authorities at the same
time announced a decision to refuse
nassnorts to "picture brides."
This is said to have giwn rise to
strong opposition from Japanese resi
dents in the united states, wno,
thrnnirh a convention of delegates at
San Francisco, passed the following
"Many of the Japanese residents in
America have crossed over with a view
of permanent settlement. One month

Japan when back for a visit would
therefore be too short a time within
whirhtn execute all the business they
have to do in Japan. Especially is this
so, when they return for the purpose
of marriage, now not possible by
means of an exchange of pictures.
"At least three months are neces
sary. Japanese residents in America,
accordingly, will appeal to their home
government to extend the maximum
limit of their stay in Japan to at least
half a year."
The resolution was reecived a few
weks ago by Etaujiro Uychara, prees-
dent of the Japanese Assucianuu
Settlers in America, and preparations,
aren ow being made by him for the In
troduction of the subject In the next
session of the diet. ' '
"Certainly no regulations could b
harder on the Japanese," Mr. Uyehara
is quoted by the Kokusai Nws Agen
cy as saying. He continued: "Their
request for the amendment of w
regulations deseres support an 1 it is

One of a party of three Czecho

the war. For three years prior to the
outbreak of the war he had been a
