I’m delighted with the formation on Dec 25 of the Retired Soviet Generals and Admirals for Peace and Disarmament, and that representatives of our group have been invited to meet with them to establish theme and agenda for this summer’s discussion. Our three previous meetings with the Warsaw Treaty ad hoc group were cordial and productive and we expect these relations to continue.

I would like to recommend you to read the following report: American Nuclear Guinea Pigs: Three Decades of Radiation Experiments on U.S. Citizens. It is a subcommittee staff report for the Subcommittee on Energy Conservation and Power of the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the U.S. House of Representatives, Washington, D.C. 20515.

We are very glad that Alexander Rapoport is going to have his songs performed in Toronto. Mr. Asano Shofu and Mrs. Izui Chieko are very happy and honored to hear that the songs will be performed. Needless to say he has their permission. They will be performed in our “No More Hiroshimas” concerts in Tokyo and Hiroshima this August, too.

— Shingo Shibata

Mr. Asano and Mrs. Izui are the composers of haikus for which Alexander Rapoport has written the music. The songs will have their world premier at the University of Toronto May 26.
