Kunz To Give
Talk On India
Noted Authority Has Lived
ThroughoutEmpire .
Fritz Kunz, noted authority on
India, will speak on "India, Key to
World Security" at 8 p.m. tomorrow
in the League Chapel, in a lecture
sponsored by the Ann Arbor Theoso-
phical Society.1
Although his own education has
been largely American, Kunz hs
lived with British peoples in Eng-
land, Australia, New Zealand, Cey-
lon, India and Burma, and his years
of residence in these countries have
given him insight into the world prob-
lems faced by British democracy.
Stating the issue of the modern
world as one of brotherhood against
insane nationalism, Kunz believes
that the question is one of spiritual
unity of the human race against
materialism and domination of the
many by force used by the few.
