Jap Supreme Commander’s Swords Come in a Box
130,000 JAPS HAD BEEN KILLED by Admiral Mountbatten’s South East Asia Command at the time
of the Jap surrender, when Field-Marshal Count Terauchi, Jap Supreme Commander in that war the
atre, pleaded to be excused surrendering his sword because he was stricken with paralysis. The British
Admiral granted this plea, but said that the Jap Field Marshal was to make formal surrender as
soon as he was able. Time passed, but Mountbatten stuck to his order, and Terauchi is pictured here as,
with the help of an aide-de-camp (left), he bowed low and handed over to the Allied Supreme Com
mander not one but two swords complete with their case. High-ranking officers of the Allied Command,
in which every 83 men in a hundred were from the British Commonwealth of Nations, witnessed the
ceremony held in Saigon, French Indo-China.

will be influenced as much by
weather at corn planting time, as
by any contemplated raises in bean
price ceilings.
Unfavorable weather often makes
it impossible for the farmer to
plant as much corn as he had plan
ned, and much of the land so af
fected is used for soy bean produc
tion, inasmuch as the latter crop
can be seeded later in the season.
Little Surplus Grain
At present there is little, if any,
surplus grain on farms in the Bluff
ton district. Existing grain and
feed stocks are being held as a
prudent farm practice to safeguard
against emergency feeding needs. It
is largely from this reserve that the
government seeks to draw the food
stuffs needed to tide over until the
next harvest.
Ordinarily, an increase in price is
not sufficiently attractive to the
farmer to part with the grain he
carries as a feed reserve. In ad
dition, there is a widespread feel
ing that still greater increases in
grain price ceilings may come which
would in effect tend toward removal
of price controls from farm
products, which the farmer has been
Appraisal of the current situation
was summed up by one farmer this
week, with the observation that sell
ing the wheat and com he had in
his bins would jeapordize his farm
feeding operations on the other
hand the money obtained from sell
ing the grain could not be used,
for there virtually are no imple
ments or other equipment on the
farm market. Under present condi
tions, he said, grain in the bin looks
more attractive than money in the
