ANNIVERSARY LECTURE MEETING
An anniversary lecture meeting was held on October 9, 1996.
Professor Chikara Hayashi at Kyushu Industrial University

According to his survey, Japanese students only have time to communicate
with their parents for 15 minutes on Sundays. Of course, this
was based on the average of secondary school students. But we couldn't

grades. There is a definite need for teachers and parents alike
to pay attention to the emotional development of our children.
We must stop suicide and teasing.(reported by Yuchan)
