State Department sources emphasise that the effort to define unconditional surrender (cabled yesterday) sought a face-saving formula for a Japanese surrender without softening the Allied war aims, says the New York Heraldiribunes Washington correspondent.

An unnamed Congressman, who conferred with Mr. Truman before his departure for Potsdam, said the President insisted that any surrender definition should not lessen Japanese war responsibility nor allow Japan to retain or regain military strength for another war. Far East experts inside and outside the State Department agreed that the Emperor's removal should not be demanded, because the Emperor alone might be able to persuade the Japanese in China to accept unconditional surrender, and also because the Japanese would restore the Imperial system as soon as Allied backs were turned.
