War Training Barred
In Japanese Schools
ly th« Associated Press
A demilitarized and democratic
system of education for Japan, pro
viding a minimum of six years free
and compulsory schooling for all
children, was outlined today by the
Par Eastern Commission.
A detailed policy directive for
warded to Gen. MacArthur said that
teaching of military subjects should
be “totally forbidden” in all Japan’s
postwar educational institutions.
The directive, one of a series is
sued by the 11-nation commission
to guide the Allied occupation, laid
down these general principles:
1. Education should be looked
on as the pursuit of truth, as a
preparation for life in a demo
cratic nation and as a training for
the social and political responsibil
ity which freedom entails.
2. Measures should be undertaken
as rapidly as possible to achieve
equality of educational opportunity,
regardless of sex or social position.
3. Special emphasis should be
placed on reorganization of normal
schools. Teachers should be guar
anteed a basic living wage.
4. Teaching of ultranationalism,
state shintoism, veneration of the
Emperor, exaltation of the state
over the individual and race su
periority should be routed out, and
textbooks containing such ideas
withdrawn.
Hodge Hails Marshall
For Firm Korea Stand
By tho Associated Press
SEOUL, April 12.—Lt. Gen. John
R. Hodge declared today Secretary
of State Marshall’s “vigorous letter"
to Russian Foreign Minister Molotov
should make it clear “that we are
firmly committed to the establish
ment of a united, democratic, inde
pendent Korean nation.”
“I am happy that the Korean
• ' • *■ '
problem has been taken up on the
highest level,” the American military
commander in Southern Korea said
in a statement on Gen. Marshall’s
request that the two nations get to
gether and grant Korea its inde
pendence as soon as possible.
“Americans in Korea will continue
their program of promoting eco
nomic, political and cultural devel
opments in our zone of occupation
with the aim of building a pros
perous, united Korea.”
Gen. Hodge, returning from Wash
ington conferences with Gen. Mar
shall, said the United States would
intensify its efforts to get the Joint
Soviet-American commision to ne
gotiating again.
The general said in an interview
later that he had received a couple
of letters from Lt. Gen. G. P. Korot
kov, new Russian commander in
Northern Korea, “indicating some
degree of willingness to compromise,
at least on small points.”
The Russians broke off negotia
tions after insisting that no Korean
political parties which ever had op
posed the present trusteeship could
participate in the conferences on
setting up an independent govem
ment. The Americans hold that the
