x-Senator Declares European
tons Disregard U. S. in
Treaty Making

N a-

"Whatever attitude we take with
espect to our relations with foreign
ountries, let us first prepare against
mergencies" said ex-Senator James
familton Lewis in his address before
he followers of the Oratorical asso-
lation's lecture course in Hill audi-
rium last night.
The former floor-leader of the sen-
te began his address by calling to
he attention of his audience the sim-
licity of the foreign problems with
hich we were faced in the early
ears of our history. He showed how
me added to-the complexity of the
ituations which we were called upon
o face.
Science Changed Relations
"Cables were laid, steamships came
nto use, and we were knitted with
he world," said the senator. "The
eniuses of our land were pitted
gainst the best intellects of the earth.
hen came the Monroe Doctrine, in
which the United States was working
n the interests of the United States.
We had gone beyond the mere set-
lement of border problems, and we
iecame entangled in problems involv-
ng large and powerful nations."
Senator Lewis then undertook to
how the conditions of this country
n regard to our foreign relations at
he close of the Great war. He
howed wherein England, France,
taly, and in fact all Europe had pro-
eeded with the forming of alliances
without regard to the desires or opin-
ons of the United States. He quot-
d a Belgian statesman as express-
ng the feeling prevalent among the
European countries when he said,
"Belgium as well as the rest of the
Ailies are getting tired of hearing the
name -of the United States of Amer-
Fears Japanese Menace
He then told of the disregard in
which this country is held by the
countries of the Orient. "Japan's
eople only behold that we hold up
her people as being unworthy of be-
oming citizens of the United States,"
he continued. "Japan is a rising and
owerful nation. Neither she nor
China will endure this humiliation in-
definitely. I now bring you a solemn
inquiry. How will Japan proceed?
First she will enlist the aid of China.
Then she will turn to bur European
friends who are holding us in disre-
gard at the present and say, 'In the
hour of our travail, I helped you. Now
I demand of you that you ask of the
United States that my people have
the same rights in that country that
your people do. Do you think that
they will refuse? They do not dare
for they know that if they do, Japan
will drive them from their possessions
in the East. I feel that it is inevi-
table that the United States will be
called upon to decide whether she is
to remain the dominant nation of the
world and that the contest will be
waged in the Pacific.
Definite Policy Needed
"If we are to maintain our place
of honor, we must early disclaim the
portions of the treaty of Versailles
which declare us as hypocrites be-
fore the world, and we must decide
upon one of three policies-to ente
upon an association of nations em-
bracing the world, to enter into an
association of nations embracing th
western hemisphere, or to take ou
stand as a separate nation maintain
ed by force of arms.- Whatever w
do, let us prepare first and then pur
sue our policy to the end."

Inaugurating a plan to give infor-
mation concering the moral, relig-

people of all countries, a "World
Service Forum" will be started at
Michigan with a meeting at 7 o'clock
Wednesday night in Hill auditorium.
The Forum, which is backed by the
Students Christian association, will
meet monthly and prominent men will
speak on such topics as industrial or
political situations, living conditions
and general social or religious condi-
tions in different countries. The plan
has been tried in the last few years
with much success at the University
of Chicago, Illinois, Wisconsin, and
Not Religious in Tone
"The meetings are not specifically
to give religious propaganda or mis-
sionary work in any narrow sense of
the word," said T. S. Evans of the
S. C. A. "There will be no praying

e or singing. The speaker will talk
r only 20 or 30 minutes, after which he
will answer questions from the audi-
ence. Such forums at other universi-
e ties proved very popular among the
r faculty, graduates, and under-gradu-
ates who are studying international
e problems."
- All arrangements for the meetings
will be made by the world service
committee of the S. C. A., of which
Roswell Dillon, '21E, is chairman, and
Howard Chapman of the S. C. A., is
g secretary.

Chinese Present
Dramatized Poem,
Chinese students will present a
dramatization of the Tang poem, a
representative of the most brillianti
period of Chinese literature, that of
the Tang dynasty, coming during the1
seventh century A.D., at a reception
tonight to be given President Marion,
L. Burton and Mrs. Burton at their
The play is a reproduction of a sum-
iliar act presented by the Cosmopolitan
club in the "Magic Carpet" five years
ago in Hill auditorium. The Magic
Carpet" was written by J. Raleigh
Nelson, of the engineering college, and
consisted of acts representing differ-
ent nations, or rather the national
creed of that country. The Tang act
showed the respect of child for parent
and the abhorence of war, both char-
acteristics being especially predom-
inant among the Chinese..,¢
The story told is about Maung Lan,
the Chinese Joan of Arc. The scene is
at the time of the Mongolian invasion.
Every household was supposed to give
one man to the army. Maung's father
was going blind and rather than have
him serve, she decided to go in his
place. So donning his armor, Maung
took his place in the army and served
throughout the invasion. She became
one of the greatest generals the em-
pire had ever known.,
The story has lived to the present
day in China as exemplification of
Chinese ideals.
