1948 Report from the Far East Remember Pearl Harbor …? On the Red time-table, the target for tomorrow is Japan. Whether Japan will stand as a bastion of the Democracies or fall to Communism is vital to our defense. Here is the story of our power and peril. It is the personal account of an able reporter, author and radio correspondent who has served for the last two years on General MacArthur's staff.

As a member of MacArthur's headquarters in Tokyo he has weighed America's Occupation of Japan. Now he returns to make his report. It is a startling and authentic story; a report that could only come from inside MacArthur's GHQ. Mr. Wheeler also is the author of the forthcoming book, STALIN'S TIME BOMB: JAPAN. Before going to Japan, Romney Wheeler was an Associated Press correspondent for more than 10 years. We was a War Correspondent in Europe. He remained overseas to become AP Diplomatic Correspondent in London. Later he was Associated Press Chief of Bureau in Amsterdam. He returned to reporting to cover the Paris Peace Conference in 1946. While in Europe he was loaned to the National Broadcasting Company and was heard regularly on the NBC network from London. Late in 1946 he returned to the United States to become Southern Political Editor for the Associated Press. Early in 1948 he went to Japan to administer General MacArthur's book-translating program. Romney Wheeler was born February 21, 1911, at Huntington (Long Island), N. Y. He was educated at the Huntington High School, Rutgers Preparatory School and Rutgers University.

Fact, Fiction and a Free Press in World Affairs. The Literary Cold War; Are We Smart Enough to Win It? Romney Wheeler Answers Such Questions as 1. Will Russia risk war to gain control of Japan? 2. Can we stop Communism in the Far East? And if so, where? 3. Have the Japanese really renounced war? 4. Have we democratized the Japanese? Romney Wheeler Tells Also: 1. Why Japan is the key to Russia's dream of Far Eastern Empire? 2. How Russia landed three Communist divisions in Japan in 1949. 3. Why 3,000,000 Japanese voted Communist in Japan's last election. 4. Why Russia expects starvation and depression to speed a Red conquest of Japan. HE REPORTS FURTHER 1. How Japan expects to bargain for the return of bloody Okinawa and Iwo-Jima, and other islands she lost in the Pacific War. 2. How Japanese bureaucrats sabotaged Occupation reforms and fought under-cover against MacArthur. 3. How Japan's fantastic birth-rate is building toward a disastrous explosion in the Far East. 4. How Communists organized a Korean fifth-column to take up arms when MacArthur leaves. The answers to these questions are as dramatic as tomorrow's newspapers. They make an absorbing story of the present, a realistic forecast of the future. They are an un censored report from the Far East.
