Child Labor Laws, Labor Unions, Are
Country's Most Pressing Needs,
Blainshard Believes
Disclosing many of the hitherto
unknown facts of conditions in China
today Paul Blanshard, in his talk
"The Chinese Revolution," yesterday
afternoon, told of the effects of the
various foreign policies of the na-
tions of the world upon China as a
nation. "We as Americans," saida
Blanshard, who is a graduate of
Michigan of the class of 1914, and
field secretary for th League for
Industrial Democracy,i"ought to dis-
illusion ourselves about our foreign
policy, we ought to want to see the
Nationalist movement in China come
to a final and ultimate success."
Interested prinarily in labor con-I
ditions, Blanshard on his recent trip
to China made an intensive study of
the Chinese in his new industrial
system. "China needs labor unions,"
he said, "more than any other na-
tion at present. There are factoriesI
full of little children, between thec
ages of 4 and 8, hardly big enoughr
to get their little heads above theb
machines, who are working twelveC
hours a day for the sum of an Amer-t
ican dime. The Chinese civilizations
as a whole will not be redeemed un-t
til a mechanical revolution takes
place." How primitively and poorlyI
these same workers live, without
bath tubs of any sort, with no floor !
but mud, no glass in their windows,t
and without the semblance of ax
chimney was called inexcusable byt
the speaker. "It seems to me," hec
continued, "that changing these con-
ditions is more important that thet
fear of losing rickshaws and the
beauty of the Chinese phi osophy?
Russia Aided Revolt
Much help in the detils of the car-I
rying out of the revolution was gain-t
ed from Russia, said Blanshard. Thec
government of China asked Americaa
for this help, but it could not be
given, and Russia was only too gladt
to come to the rescue. Consequently1
many of the ideas upon which the
present government built are of Rus-
sian origin. And to Russia must go1
the credit for finally arousing thec
peasants of thg country who hadt
been previously so inactive and do-
"The appalling labor conditions,"
said Blanshard, "which are an out-
come of the revolution, will take
many years to reach a stage of sta-
bilization, a period when their eco-
nomic conditions may be on a sound
basis. The conditions of the peas-
ants is no better, for they are poor-
er even than the city laborers.
Feminist Movement Is Colorful
"One of the most colorful move-
ments on foot now is that of the
feminists. Parading under their mot-
to of 'Freedom in love and marriage
and divorce,' they are now making
themselves distinctly felt in their ef- I
forts to raise the standards of the
Chinese woman to the same level of
independence as that of the Western
woman. Some of the Chinese women
are even bobbing their hair now, but
still it is the canse for murder, if'
they happen to fall into the hands of
the warring parties."
Blanshard, although he claimedtto
be no prophet, said he saw in the
future a war in the Orient. He saw
Great Britain, Japan, and the United
States opposing India, Russia, and
China with the root of the trouble
being Manchuria, for even 'today
-there is some doubt as to how the
Manchurian Railway situation is to
turn out.
