Original Caption:

Tokyo -- Ichiro Hatoyama, newly-elected Japanese Premier, and Mamoru Shigemitsu, one time war criminal, raise glasses in a toast while Democratic Party members shout, "Banzai" at a victory ceremony in Tokyo. Shigemitsu, Foreign Minister when Japan surrendered at the end of World War II, is considered the most likely candidate for Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister in the Hatoyama cabinet. (1954)
