Chu Discusses
Culture's Place
In World Unity
Continuous Exchange
Promotes GoodI Will
"China, along with the United
States, has not been aware of the
importance of knowing the culture
of other nations, particularly Japan,"
said Shih Chia Chu in his second
lecture on "Chinese Civilization"' yes-
"Peace among nations can only be
made by understanding." he stated
and added that "only by continuous
exchange of culture can we hope to
attain that understanding."
Early History Related
Relating the history of cultural
relations between China and Japan,
Chu began. with the first contact
between the two countries around the
second and third centuries. A.D.
Many Japanese students visited Chi-
na and returned to their own country
with coins, books, and other cultural
tokens from China.
The borrowing between China and
Japan reached its highest point from
630 to 894 A.D., said Chu. The
Japanese borrowed the language of
China in the early Christian era and
officially adopted it in 400 A.D.
Tells of Cultural Borrowing
This Japanese borrowing continued
until early in the 19th century, when
Western powers began to influence
that country's development. How-
ever, all during the last century,
China continued to send many of its
students to Japan to study law, medi-
cine and military history.
