Visiting the graves of war dead in the Capital are (2) the younger brother of the Emperor and his wife, Prince and Princess Takamatsu. Shortage of foodstuffs is being countered in diverse ways—primary schools are now "keeping ”goats to supplement the milk ration. As part of the routine curri­culum the children receive lessons (3)from their teachers in the care of these animals and the rearing of their kids. Goat’s milk is somewhat richer in fat than cow’s milk and is less liable to be in­fected with tuberculosis. WHERE PARTS FOR JAP AIRCRAFT WERE MADE pots and pans are now being manufactured. Warrant Officer Robson (5) is supervising a worker in the Teijin Seiki Co.'s factory at Iwaltuni, '.where more Spitfires recently arrived to reinforce the Air Component of the B.C.O.".
