a young man, in the prime of life,
he was stricken with infantile
paralysis, from which he never
fully recovered. He assumed the

old Jap custom of hara-kiri.
The Office of War Information,
in a report on manpower losses in
the Jap navy, based on official in
formation from the Navy Depart

agencies, says:
“The willingness of Japanese to
commit hara-kiri is no longer con
sidered a virtue because so many of
the navy’s best sailors have done
away with themselves.”
The Japs have lost approximately
