Improved practices can be applied to
Japan's basic pattern of farming.
Whenever a man sets his eyes on
Tokyo for the first time, lasting im
pressions have a amy of building up.
I Wanted to know what Lee, who has
been connected with State College
since 1936, would have to say about
these original imprints on the
Breathes there a man who wouldn't
write home about it T Well, this Mr.
Lee, whose chief interest of a life
time has been North Carolina soils,
set down his impressions in a letter
to Director I. 0. Sehaub of the State
College Extension Service. His train
of thought on Tokyo runs like this:
"A much bombed city, with vast
areas laid waste ? broad streets ?
everything left handed ? smells ?
decrepit little trolleys packed full,
with people on the outside like ants
clinging to a picnic cookie-? little
men, big loads ...
"Everything left handed . . . doors
. . . driving... turns... always bump
ing into someone going the wrong ( T)
way . . . bicycles, bicycles . . . some
pulling half a ton in a trailer . . .
little mem big loads . . . Japanese

"Army houses and feeds us in
hotels and large homes . . . many
places 'off limits'... Army runs free
buses . . . large and important build
ings missed in bombing . . . people
appear intelligent, clever, polite . . .
Army uses Japanese everywhere pos
sible . . . about half the office force
in Agriculture are Japanese." His
wandering thoughts end.
I have noticed before that where
little men have big loads in agricul
ture, State College is always repre
sented in any program designed to
lighten their burden.
Now I know why Mr. Lee went to.
