  • Description

    In further massive demonstrations against the American-Japanese Security Treaty, some 160,000 people staged "eighteenth unified action" against the treaty and President Eisenhower's visit for 7 hours outside the Diet building, the United States Embassy, and outside Prime Minister Kishi's residence. Militant students, trade unionists and sympathizers were again involved in scuffles with the police but no casualties were reported.

    Mr Kishi told American Ambassador, Douglas MacArthur, that the overwhelming majority of the Japanese people were shocked at the violent treatment received by Mr. Hagerty, June 10, when an angry mob attempted to overturn his car. He said they regretted the aggressive methods used. The authorities have promised severe punishment of those responsible for the hold-up of Mr. Hagerty who was in Tokyo to prepare for President Eisenhower's visit June 19.

    President Eisenhower - on a 23,000 mile Far Eastern tour - left Alaska, June 13, on a flight to the Philippines for a 3-day stay. Although it is expected that there will be less obstructions to his visit than anticipated, it has been arranged that the President will drive with Japanese Emperor Hirohito in a bullet-proof car from the airport on his arrival in Japan.
