Two Japanese Catholic educators, a nun and a layman, have been appointed to a special Government committee to revitalise the educational system of Japan. They are Mother Takamine, directress of the Futaba Catholic Girls' School, and Professor Inatome of the Jesuits' Sophia University.
During the post-war period, Japanese education was thoroughly purged of its old military spirit and of the veneration for the Imperial House. Students. left without the traditional loyalties and idealism, tended to drift into del inquency.
The committee has been directed to give special attention to the teachings of an acceptable ethical code.
