FINAL SHIH LECTURE:
'China Needs More Equipment,
Support To Repulse Invaders'

As the destruction of the Japanese
army and navy is the immediate task
at hand, China is in desperate need
of more equipment and allied sup-
port to hold off the invaders, Dr.
Shih Chia Chu said yesterday in the
fourth and last lecture on "Chinese
Civilization."
Chu gave credit to the various Am-
erican forces now fighting in his
country and helping the Chinese to
continue their struggle. In particu-
lar he -mentioned the Army Air
Corps, our forces in Burma, and the
raids on Japan.
In answer to the popular question
of how China can still fight on after
seven long years of war, Chu gave
six different answers. First, he at-
tributed China's endurance to her
remarkable leader, who, at the out-
break of war, pledged his country's
cause as a fight to the finish.
"The bravery and endurance of the;
Chinese army is unequaled by any
other country in the world," said
Chu, adding that it had progressed'
half a century farther than it would
have in peace time.
His third reason for China's fight-
ing was the whole-hearted support
of the army by the citizens, and,
fourth, the fact that Japan had un-

derestimated the morale of the army.
The other factors included the sup-
port by the Allies, particularly the
United States, and the immense area
in which the Chinese could fight.
"Inflation in China is extremely
serious," Chu declared, mentioning
that a full dinner now costs $150 in
some places and a breakfast, $50.
There are only two classes left, the
very rich and very poor."
Among the factors listed by Chu
as necessary for a new China, were
(1) the promotion of intern'ational
relations, (2) political reform with
the existance of more than one party,
(3) a sound reconstruction program,
(4) an increase in the production of
food, (5) improvements in education,
and (6) a satisfactory solution to the
problem of providing the essentials,
for the veterans.
