IDLE AND RESIGNED
Japanese Discouraged By Real
Facts Of War
CHILDREN TO RECLAIM LAND
Rec. 1.30 p.m. NEW YORK, July 19.
The Vice-Minister of the Japanese Navy, Admiral Takeo Tada, in a speech broadcast by Tokyo radio, said it is regrettable that some Japanese, discouraged by the real facts of this fierce war, have become idle, and resentful and have resigned themselves to an attitude of aimless, destructive self-interest and the abandonment and neglect of their duties. The newspaper Mainichi saiel Allied attacks against Japan were only a feeble attempt to entice the air force, which at present is biding its time for action in accordance with the High Command's elastic tactics in preparation for the decisive struggle. According to the Domei news agency 1,500,000 school children are being mobilised to reclaim 25,000 acres of land to increase food production. .
