  • Description

    UNEMPLOYMENT - MINERS ARE GOING ON HUNGER STRIKE ABOUT IT IN TOKYO, POINTEDLY OUTSIDE THE OFFICES OF THE MINISTRY OF INDUSTRY.

    MINER'S PROTEST ARE MOST A DAILY AFFAIR IN THE CAPITAL AS UNEMPLOYMENT SPREADS IN THE JAPANESE COAL INDUSTRY. WORK AT PITS HAS BEEN REDUCED AND MACHINES ARE DOING MORE OF THE MEN'S WORK AT OTHERS - IT'S ALL PART OF THE MINISTRY'S RESHAPING OF THE HITHERTO UNECONOMICAL INDUSTRY.

    TWENTY-FOUR MINERS ARE ON THE HUNGER STRIKE AND THEY'RE WEATHERING TOO A BITTER COLD THAT DIPS BELOW FREEZING EVERY NIGHT. KEEPING A CHECK ON THEIR PHYSICAL CONDITION IS A DOCTOR, SUMMONED BY THE MEN'S UNION, AMID A BLAZE OF PUBLICITY.

    MUCH OF JAPAN'S COAL TROUBLE, AS IN OTHER COUNTRIES, IS OVER GROWING INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION AND RISING PRODUCTION COST. OIL TOO HAS BECOME A CHIEF CONTENDER TO DISPLACE COAL AS AN INDUSTRIAL FUEL.
