TOKYO, March 12 (Reuters) - Japanese consumer confidence
slipped in February, down for the third straight month, a
Cabinet Office survey showed on Wednesday.
    The survey's sentiment index for general households, which 
includes views on incomes and jobs, was at 38.3 in February,
falling from 40.5 in January.
    A reading below 50 suggests consumer pessimism.
