United StatesMust Aid China,
Britain, Prof. Remer Declares

Prof. Christian
To Inaugurate
Organ Series


Full aid to Britain and China is
the only possible American answer
to the recently signed German-
Italian - Japanese Alliance, Prof.
Charles F. Remer of the economics
department asserted in an interview
Since never before in American
history has the United States been
actually threatened by^ a powerful
alliance, the attitude of the individ-
ual citizen and the formal policy of
the government toward that political
reality is of- tremendous significance
in the World of 1940, Professor Re-
mer declared.'
War Threat Is Real
"If the individual faces the ob-
vious facts, he must realize that the
threat of our involvement in the war
is now real," Professor Remer said.
"Without a shadow of a doubt the
German- Italian - Japanese Alliance
calls for full 'speed ahead in na-
tional defense."
Formal governmental policy must
provide intensified aid to Great Brit-
ain and China, unless we intend to
disregard entirely the needs of our
friends in the face of the threats of
our enemies. Professor Remer con-
tinued. "Any other course places the
determination of American policy in
the Far East in Tokyo and the de-
termination of American policy in
Europe in Berlin."
Foreign Policy Unstable
"I believe that every American
who knows Europe and the Far East
is fully aware of the urgent need for
speed in rearmament and in the de-
termination of a positive foreign pol-
icy," Professor Remer said, "for pat-
ently we cannot afford to wait until
this country lies between a success-
ful Germany and a successful Ja-
Aid to the cause of Great Britain
and China does not entail belliger-
ent acts upon the part of the gov-
ernment of the .United States, ac-
cording to Professor Remer. He
declared that this nation need only
do more fully what it is already do-
ing to help those two countries.
Japan's Posit'ion,.
Particularly puzzling to Professor
Remer were the precise reasons why
Japan decided to sign the Alliance
with Germany and Italy. He pointed
out that so long as the British fleet
remains unvanquished, Japan can
receive no military aid from the
Fascist countries. Therefore any mil-

itary action against the United
States must be undertaken by the
Japanese alone.
