Reports on how HATAYOMA was denied the premiership by SCAP because of his "career as secretary on the notorious Tanaka Cabinet from 1927 to 1929" as well as his ultra-nationalistic speeches and writings. Indicates that Hatayoma may be tried as a war criminal and that "SCAP says he shares blame for formulating peace preservation law."
