Dr. Stuart Expresses Hope for China
Recently returned to the United
Stateseafter four years as a prisone
of the Japanese, Dr. J. Leighton Stu-
art, president of Yenching Universit3
in Peiping, said:
"I have never been more hopeful
for China, more optimistic concern-
ing its future, than at the presenit
time. I never felt that the so-called
Civil War in China was of any real
practical importance, and now even
that is cleared away.
The one real danger would have
been, Dr. Stuart explained, pos-
sibility of the United States and
Soviet Taussia supporting opposing
parties in China. It is now evident
that that is not and will not be
the case, he said.
"Revolutionary activities," Dr.
Stuart pointed out, "were confined
to a relatively small group in
North China and did not encom-
pass the masses of the Chinese peo-
"It centered about a group who
called themselves Communists, but
whose real objectives were a revo-
lution of the most radical nature.'
This element wished to take up where'
Food Boxes Will
Be Sent Abroad
"IF YOU CARE-SHARE!" is the
slogan of a newly formed committee
to promote the collection and ship-
ment of food stuffs to countries not
now covered by UNRRA's services.
Sponsored by a state wide organ-
ization, the International League for
Peace and Freedom, the group will;
place boxes in all Ann Arbor grocery'
stores for the next month to. en-'
courage shoppers to drop in a can
of food while making their other
purchases. It will then be collected
and sent to Detroit where the Good-
will Industries will prepare it for
he revolution of 1918, which estabt
ished the Nationalists in power, left
Although their ambitions were
noble; that is, to root out all the
corrupt practices remaining from
China's Imperial system, the meth-
od they chose for achieving this
were unfortunate, Dr. Stuart said.
"They are trying to do the right
thing in the wrong way."
The scheduled convention in
May, he contends, will see the for-
mation of a two party government
which will serve to place China
once more on a unified national
A prisoner of the Japanese
throughout the war, Dr. Stuart and
two other Americans were held in the
;trictest confinement for nearly four
"Further evidence that the Japa-
nese attack on Pearl Harbor was a
pre-arranged, premeditated opera-
tion, if that is needed," Dr. Stuart
related. "was our arrest the very
morning of Dec. 7, even before we had
learned of the action."
Restricted to the limits of one
building in Peiping, they were never
allowed out on the streets, he said.

Wenrich To Address
Ralph C. Wenrich, newly appointed
lecturer in Vocational Education in
the School of Education, will speak
before the annual Iota Lambda Sig-
ma banquet Feb. 8 in Buffalo, N.Y.
The topic of Mr. Wenrich's dis-
cussion will be "The Implications of
the Army's Training for Civilian
Practices." The Iota Lambda Sigma
banquet is being held in connection
with the American Vocational As-
which was thoroughly stripped by
the Japanese, Dr. Stuart observed
that "there has never been a more
friendly feeling here towards China
than now. The institution, char-
tered by New York state, and
maintained by American support,
was established in 1919, with Dr.
Stuart as president. -
"Our university normally handled
an average enrollment of 1200 stu-
dents before the war," he related.
"Classes were conducted on a bilin-
gual system, since a speaking knowl-
edge of both Chinese and English
Heartened by four months of "free-
dom, friendliness and food" in his
native land, Dr. Stuart will return to
China and his work in April.

English Language Institute at a tea
and dinner today.

dependence for India, Great Britain
will undoubtedly give her autonomy
as fast as the mother country thinks
she can assimilate it, he said. Allow-
ing for a few obvious exceptions, this
is consistent with British imperial
policy in the last half century, Prof.
Britain has been most concerned
during that period, with getting
out of countries rather than getting
in, and any future large-scale col-
onial expansion on the part of
England is out of the question. She
has neither the strength nor the in-
clination to maintain an empire
along the lines of the 19th century
British empire, he claimed.
"England wishes merely to retain
her spheres of influence outside her
borders and maintain contact with
former colonies and other parts of
the empire," Prof. Willcox concluded.
H IIis Nomination
Denocrats Divided on
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Feb. 6 -- (/P) - A
top-flight democratic leader in Con-k
gress hinted today that the appoint-
ment of Edwin W. Pauley to be un-
dersecretary of the navy might be
withdrawn to escape rejection.
But Democrats on the Senate Naval
Committee split over whether the
nomination should be cancelled or
fought through to a showdown
against heavy Republican opposition.
The party leader, who declined use
of his name, told a reporter that con-
firmation might be impossible as a
result of testimony of Secretary of
the Interior Ickes before the naval
Furthercommittee hearings on the
nomination were put off at least un-
til next week. In the interval, the sit-
uation as to its withdrawal may jell.
The break in hearings opened the
way for the Senate Banking Commit-
tee to inquire into the disputed nomi-
nation of George E. Allen, unofficial
adviser to the President, to the board
of directors of the Reconstruction Fi-
Some administration men at the
capitol said they considered an im-
mediate decision on possible with-
drawal of Pauley's nomination to be
unlikely, especially since the White
House indicated recently that the ap-
pointment would not be recalled.
Pauley told the naval committee at
one point that he wanted a yes or no
decision on nomination.

Aunt Ruth To Stage
-Reunion of Writers
Letters from 2200 servicemen that
were sent to "Aunt Ruth" Buchanan
of the University Museum during the
war are now being compiled into a
two-volume book that will be pub-

The letters bearing postmarks
from all over the world have been
kept on file throughout the war in
the Rackham Building. Once the book
is pubished, originals will become
the property of the Universityr Ac-
cording to Aunt Ruth, these letters
will become a good source of infor-
mation for future historians who wish
to record the impressions of those
who took part in World War Two.
Aunt Ruth hopes that the books
will be ready for distribution by next
October, when a reunion of all those
who corresponded with her will be
held. These included 1200 graduates
of the University. As one of her cor-
respondents wrote, the reunion will
be "a tribute to a person who has
sincerely made the many servicemen
with whom she was in contact feel
that what they did or tried to do was
