Article: "Progressive Party Leader Of Japan Here. Takeo Miki, chief secretary of the Progressive Party (Kaishinto) of Japan, and Mrs. Miki are visiting in Honolulu today enroute back to Japan after a two months' world tour. They arrived here last night from San Francisco at 10 by plane, and are scheduled to depart for Tokyo tonight at 10:30 by Pan American clipper. Miki said the purpose of his trip was to survey postwar reconstruction conditions in Europe and the Near East and meet major political leaders in various countries to get their views on the world situation. Leaving Japan on Sept. 5 with his wife, he visited India, Egypt and Europe, and arrived in the United States on Oct. 20, spending most of his time in New York City and Washington, D. C. Miki recalled today that he first visited Hawaii as a member of the Meiji university debating team which toured the world. He spent two weeks here at that time, and has many friends in the Islands. He is a former member of the Japanese cabinet, having been appointed minister of communications at the age of 39."
