To The Editor:
At a recent meeting of the Cosmopolitan Club
an address was delivered by a prominent professo:
in the geography department of our University
on the subject of "Japan and Her Natural Re-
sources." The speaker misrepresented certain
fact,) regarding the relations between Korea ant
Japan. The -writer has been informed that thih
professor uses these misleading data in his classes.
Hence, the undersigned, being himself a native of
one of these countries, feels that it is necessary
to clarify the situation for general accuracy.
1. The speaker said in substance "There are
more Koreans living in Japan than there arc
Japanese residents in the land of Korea" without
reference to a definite source of statistical facts.
The Annual Report of, the Government General
of Chosen (Korea) of 1931 published by the Japa-
nese government states. the reverse. The report
states that there are more than 500,000 Japanese
residents. in Korea against only 290,000 Koreans
in Japan, being mostly laborers, These figures
and the reports in the Japanese year book of a
very recent. date explain that the ratio of in-
crease in the incoming population of Japanese
into Korea is 20 to 30 per cent annually. On the
other hand, Korean laborers are excluded from
Japan proper by a special law enacted in 1926.
This law operates to prevent the issuance of a
special permit to Korean laborers immigratings
into Japan.

.The Theatre-
Just how much of the success of "Lucrece,"
current at the .Cass Theatre. in Detroit, is due to
the production -of Mr. and Mrs. McClintic and how
much to. the: Obey drama, is a little doubtful, buti
,he result is, gratifying. Embellished by Robert
Edmond Jones' sets' and costumes, by Deems
Taylor's music, by the Thornton Wilder transla-
tion, and above all by the electric uresence of
Miss Cornell, "Lucrece" is the season's most dis-
tinguished production to be revealed in tryout in
this province;.
The attitude of the author and roducer in
'naintaining a certain detachment throughout is
)articularly interesting. This is accomplished pri-
narily with the aid of two narrators who function
is a chorus. At times they identify themselves
Ivith the action; at times they" deliver poetic
ranscriptions of the mental states of the char-
tcters; and, in one. instance they become even
a ore objective and discuss the play itself, quoting
o6th Livy and Shakespeare.
Blanche Yurka, the first narrator, is properly
eroic, particularly in a scene with Miss Cornell
.n which they deliver a joint apostrophe to
wounded virtue. Another illustration of the use
Af this device is a vivid scene in the first. act in
7hich Robert Lorraine, the second narrator, de-
cribes Tarquin, already intent on his hideous.
;rime, leaving camp for the house of Collatine.
This recitative outlined against a background of
,ucrece spinning with her maids gives a startling
affect of impending doom.
Jones' unit set is most effective, for it repre-
ents the entire house of Collatine. Both set and
ostumes are decorative rather than historical,
nd in this they follow the author's mood which
ives a universality to the play. The rape of Lu-'
rece, he indicates, is not. a crime peculiar- to
:agan Rom~e.

loin, however, that such talent has been assem-
,led in any. save productions of the Theatre.

SATURDAY, DFC. 10, 1932
Time For The 'U. S. To
Buy Back G~ood Will.,
.astute a political commentator as
Frederic William Wile, is surely worthy of close
scrutiny. Mr. Wile is absolutely in favor of, a
reduction of the debt -"buying back," as he
expresses it, "some of the good will we have lost
over there during the. past few years."
"There is no reason to expect- a default,", he
said Thursday night when he spoke here. 'Eng-
land is itself a creditor nation, and if it defaulted
it would be setting a bad example to those
nations which owe England considerable money.
Nor do I quite believe the pleas of poverty. that
have been advanced. Poverty -yes. But I' don't'
think either Britain or France is going to suc-
cumb, or go into the hands of a receiver, if we
stand pat on the Congressionaal policy of insisting
that the Dec. 15 payments be made." But he
added that he definitely favored a reduction -
not a complete cancellation, perhaps, but a reduc-
tion -and that he was certain that American
public opinion, if 'marshalled and organized by
someone with sufficient "int estinal investiture,"
would register likewise.
His statements, of course, were a bare outline
of the full situation; they can be amplified, ia
very little space, to an argument that should
completely convince the most skeptical that, re-
duction, and inmediate reduction, is a highly
necessary measure, and shoi~lld be carried through
immediately. The decrease in prices, for example,
is now at a pointi which boosts the mnonetary
value of the war debt far above its actual par.:
When the nations contracted to borrow from the
United States, no party involved foresaw that in
1932 they would, be paying, in' actual values, more
than half again as much as they had contracted
for. Such a situation, aside fromi its deplorab~le
economic results, is theoretically ridiculous: It
should not take much. persuasion to be shown
that, on this count alone, a reduction at least
large enough to take care of the difference in)
real value should be made.
.Unfortunately, Congress is a~fictedl with char-
acteristic inertia of a large body of generallyj
well-meaning but slow thinking politicians, who,I
filled with the idea of1 "patriotism," are not able
to see beyond the superficial aspects of the situ-
ation. The legal phase - the written obligation
entailed - entirely obscures the insight Congress
should have into the- international welfare issues
involved. If the United States seeks good will
abroad, it were well for her own selfisli interests
that she act quick~ly to diminish the international
threat imposed by war debt payment.

2. Making a comparison with misleading data,
the speaker left the impression that all the, ad-
vantages are in Korea's favor. He seems to ignore
the important social facts. The Japanese resi- ,
dents in Korea are all well settled capitalistic
leaders and business men and governmental offi-
cials. On the other hand the Korean immigrant,.
in Japan are poor laborers, who have been vic-
timized by the Japanese capitalistic enterprise,
undertaken, by a severe Japanese colonizatior.
policy and have been forced out. from their owr
country to seek for better livelihood elsewhere
not only to Japan but also to Manchuria and tc
Siberia,. According to the report given in the
Japanese Labour year book of 1931, more thar.
90 per cent of the Koreans in Japan are laboren
who do not possess home or family. Can a faii
comparison be made between these poor Korean~
laborers in Japan and those weatlhy 'JapanesE
settlers in Korea? The influence of an alier,
social system and foreign domination may, not bE
apparent to a geographer but they are immensely
significant to the. sociologist.
3. According to the statement made by the
speaker, Korea, is poor both in natural resource,,
and in agricultural lands, as compared witi:
Japnan. His reason for this is based on a one-
sided observation. Japanese fields on the average,
said the speaker, yield more productivities than
land in Korea. He overlooked the fact that thik
is not due to the quality of land but due to the
difference in new and old methods of agriculture
between the two countries. Under the economic
exploitation of Japanese capitalism and imperial-
istic control Korean farmers arp, in general, toc
poor to meet the necessary expenses of acquiring
modernized agricultural methods. Thus, their
progress is retarded. It must be insisted that the
available literature on the geographical conditions
of Korea show that Korea is not a poor country
in her natural resources or in agricultural lands
when compared with those of. Japan. It is agreeda
that the Koreans are economically poor-but the1
re'ason for this status is Japanese economic and
political domination of Korea for Japan's ex-
clusive interests.

often misinformed by ultra-patriotic govern-
mental agencies. The controlling- government has
