The Socialists will field 186 candidates for the House of Representatives in which they had 122 seats before the House was dissolved.

    Prominent among the candidates for the ruling Liberal Democrats is mr. Okazaki, who speaks to his audience from a truck.

    Leader and resident of the Liberal Democrats is Mr. Hayato Ikeda, the Japanese Prime Minister. The Liberal Democrats, with Mr. Ikeda at their head, are widely tipped in Japan to win the election. Mr. Ikeda gets down to solid campaigning himself in Yamanahi Prefecture, one of hundreds miles west of Tokyo.
