The language, which will be

and was head of a language
school for interpreters in Sen
What a Japanese says and what

very simple," remaiked Mr. Sa
kai. "There are only five basic

An everyday vocabulary ot the
language can be mastered in a one
year course, Sakai predicted.
In relation to the difficult tran
slation of Japanese, Sakai com
mented that many Japanese terms
are unexpressible in English.
"Many of the people's atti
tudes can be revealed only by
tneir own special vocabulary,"
Aid such as that given to serv
icemen going to Korea and Japan,
the many tourists, and the stu
dents of the Far East is one of the
main advantages of such a course,
We must realize, he continued,
that a "source of trouble in our
foreign affairs with Japan was
our obvious lack of knowledge of
their language. More and more
people 'are realizing the need for
understanding the Far East irom
the terms of their own language."
Prof. James Sellers, speaking
for the history department, also
pointed out that Japanese taken

tory opens a new field for stu
dents preparing for either pri

reers. Commenting on the classifica
tion of Japanese as a romance
language, Dr. Boyd Carter, chair
man of the romance language de
partment said that "aside from the
fact that a laboratory was needed
for the students of Japanese, the
only justification I can think of
is the fact that I sometimes re
ceive letters addressed to the "De
partment of Romance and Lan
guage." "And, since Japanese Is often
thought of as a romantic land of
cherry blossoms blooming under
the shadow of giant snow-covered
volcanoes, the romance language
department seemed the best clas
sification," he said.
