    Background: PRESIDENT LUEBKE OF WEST GERMANY, NOW ON A TEN-DAY STATE VISIT TO JAPAN, WENT TO THE SHINTO SHRINE DEDICATED TO EMPEROR MEIJI ON THURSDAY. IT WAS THIS EMPEROR WHO BROUGHT JAPAN'S MEDIEVAL SOCIETY INTO THE AGE OF WESTERN INDUSTRIALIZATION.

    ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE, PRESIDENT LUEBKE TOURED THE SHRINE HAVING THE VARIOUS POINTS OF INTEREST EXPLAINED TO THEM AND AFTERWARDS THEY RITUALLY WASHED THEIR HANDS AT THE WELL.

    IN THE AFTERNOON, THE GERMAN STATESMAN AND HIS WIFE ATTENDED A PERFORMANCE OF KABUKI, THE TRADITIONAL JAPANESE DRAMA, AT A THEATRE IN TOKYO. HE SAW A PERFORMANCE OF "MUSUME DOJUJI", FIRST PERFORMED IN 1753, WHICH TELLS THE STORY OF A PRIEST BEWITCHED BY A SORCERESS.
