Nazi Ideas Not New,
Father Walsh Reveals

"There is nothing new in the Nazi's
whole conception of geo-poitiks. It
goes back over 100 years and the Na-
zis simply have a new version of the
Prussian desire for world domina-
tion," Father Edmund A. Walsh, who
conducted a four hour symposium
yesterday before the student body of
the Judge Advocate General's School,
Father Walsh is Regent of the
School of Foreign Service at George-
town University, Wash., D.C., and
has been a featured lecturer at many
army schools on the forces behind'
the war.
Nazis Have No New Ideas
"In the whole Nazi creed I am un-'
able to point to a single original idea,
that creed being nothing more than a
synthesis of German philosophy as
it was developed by such writers as.
Fichte, Hegel and Nietzsche, under.
which the subjection of the indivi-
dual to the state finally flowers into
the deification of war itself as the
highest manifestation of a state's
sovereignty," he said.
Father Walsh pointed out that two
attempts at world revolution have
been made in the present generation.
Firot the Soviet State through its
third international intended to pro-
voke revolution on a world scale.
Nazis Draw Racial Lines
He stated that the Nazis made the
second attempt in this field. H{
brought out that the Soviet type
could be called horizontal becaue it
divided society into two classes, bour-
Z iegler Tells of
Need for State
Roacd .Repir
WASHINGTON, March 10.-(P)--
Approximately 90 per cent of Michi-
gan's 9,400-mile trunk line highway
system must be rebuilt as soon as
possible, Charles M. Ziegler, state
highway commissioner, told the
House and Senate roads committees
Ziegler spoke in behalf of a federal
post-war road construction bill which
would provide $1,000,000,000 a year
for three years to be divided among
the states on a 75-25 matching basis.
As the 'result of inability to keep
up with steadily collapsing roads,
Ziegler said, Michigan will have a
huge backlog of building when the
war ends, in addition to new roads
to meet conditions of growth.
He said Michigan contractors have
sufficient equipment to carry on a
$79,000000 a year building program
if money is available.

StuideIIts Opened
A house especially for foreign stu-

geois and workers, and that the Na-
zi's concept might be a'egarded as a
vertical approach because it went
from the highest stratum of society
to the lowest, the division being along
racial lines.
"The Nazi political machine used a
substantial portion of the analysis of
geo-politiks as developed by German
Institute of Munich as a propoganda
device together with a concept of Na-
zi super-man to convince Germans of
their right to a larger portion of the
earth's goods.
"We find these same ideas in early
German writing which taught inter-
national immorality, ordained Ger-
man supremacy, and that only a
German has a right to be patriotic
and love his country. They wrote
that similar qualities in other na-
tions are mere nationalism," Father
Walsh added.
Lt. Mead Starts

Technic To Be
Sold This Week.
The March issue of the Michigan
Technic, longest in this period of
Technical longevity, will be on the
stands this week, sporting a .bright
red cover on the outside and many
interesting articles on theinside.
This month the Technic will "go
to school" with the aircraft inspec-
tresses who are now studying in the
masculine sanctity of the Engineer-
ing Quad. Those airplanes we will
park in our garages after the war
are discussed from the garage-park-
ing angle in an article by William D.
Hull, called Your Post-War Private
Airplane. Oh, yes . . . Ambrose is
with us still.
The Technic seems to have made
a remarkable recovery from the dis-
ease of lack of interest on the part
of its readers and an inadequate

"Chiang Kai-Shek - Statesman"
will be the subject of a lecture by Dr.
George Shepherd, adviser to the New
Life Movement in China and a close
friend of the Generalissimo, when he
speaks at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March
22, in the Rackham Building.
Sponsored by the Committee on
Religious Education and the Army
Special Language School, the lecturer
will deal with some of the improve-
ments instigated by China's famous
leader, his ideals and his rise to
Chinese Missionary for 2 Years
Leaving the United States more
than 20 years ago, Dr. Shepherd went
to China to become a missionary for
the Congregational Church. In 1933
he was invited by Chiang Kai-Shek
to aid in developing a rural recon-
struction unit in devastated Kiangsi.
He became a member of theBoard of
Directors of the New Life Movement
the following year and since that
time he has been closely associated
with the Generalissimo.
During the 20 years Dr. Shepherd
has spent in China, he was instru-
mental in improving rural agricul-
ture, housing and transportation of
foodstuffs. He has also organized
youth groups which are comparable
to the American Boy Scouts and 4-H
Clubs. For three years he was direc-
tor of a plan designed to clear slums,
and for the following three years he
led the Chinese rural electrification
To Speak at Other Churches
In addition to his lectu~e at the
Rackham Building, Dr. Shepherd will
speak at the ?Bethlehem Evangelical
and Reformed Church under the aus-
pices of the Ann Arbor Council of
Dr. Shepherd, who was mentioned
in John Gunther's book, "Inside
Asia," as a close friend of Chiang,
believes that the only sure and last-
ing foundation of a new and better
world is to be found in the building
of spiritual understanding between
races. He contends that missionaries
are "true scientists in the realms of
human relations," and believes that
these sometimes criticized workers are
now providing the world with "un-
mistakable proof of the essential rel-
evancy between the main factors in
our several cultures."
Dr. Shepherd spoke here last sum-
mer under the sponsorship of the
Religious Education Commnitee of the
University and the Post-War Council.
At that time he stated that "the
Chinese will be the real force in de-
ciding Japan's fate, and Japan will
probably get equality in the Far East
-but no more ."
