Indian, Chine
Described byJ
"Conditions in India that have
been depicted by returning soldiers
cannot reveal in full detail the de-
plorable situation in that country,"
Major Earl Isensee, a member of the
Third Contract Termination Class of
the Judge Advocate General School,
said in an interview yesterday.
Maj. Isensee, who spent 28 months
overseas serving as an adjutant and
personnel officer for an air combat
unit in India and China, said that
there is a complete lack of sanitary
conditions and health regulations in
"India is a country possessed of
abundant raw material, but there
is always fanine there. However,
in two or three of the large cities
food is plentiful without regard to
rationing," he stated. Maj. Isensee
added that wherever dissatisfaction.
arose among the Indians with
British rule, of course, Amerjcan
soldiers did not interfere.
"China presents a very different
situation than India," he said.
"China is a country where individual
initiative can be exercised and it is
not uncommon to find traces of wes-
tern civilization among the better off
According to Maj. Isensee, some of
the more recent business and home
structures in China are of modern
architecture. The people are indus-
trious and display marked admiration
for the American soldiers, he said.
"Suring my stay in China, I ob-
served the development of nation-
alism in the area where I was.
There was no trace of communism
as we understand it in this coun-
try. The communism in China,
he stated, is not a state owned and
operated community basis.
"Rumor to the effect that Gen.
Chiang Kai Chek deems the com-
munists his major enemy and the
Japanese enemy number two, is not
true according to my observation,"

JAG Officer-

he continued. The Chinese people
as a whole are united in their de-
terinination to destroy enemy num-
ber one which is the Japanese im-
perialists," he stated.
"China is a country to be watched
after the war for progress and de-
velopment," he added.
Maj. Isensee is a graduate of the
University of Minnesota Law School
and practiced law in Minneapolis be-
fore entering the Army.
'Whiy Marry' Is
Dr. Blakeman' s
Subject Today
"Why Marry" will be the topic dis-
cussed by Dr. Edward W. Blakeman
at the class for University students
10 p. m., today, in the First Methodist
Older, religious motives for mar-
riage as well as the modern reasons
will be given. The view that chil-
dren are or should be the only object-
ives of marriage and that parents
have the responsibility of producing
improved members of society will
also be presented.
"When marriage is entered into
selfishly, egotistically and as an ex-
periment, the children become a
crop of delinquents, and divorce may
also follow," Dr. Blakeman stated.
University graduates as parents were
said to have done somewhat better
but were not completely successful.
The class is a weekly event this
summer and will hold four more
meetings. Past discussions have dealt
with the differences in American,
German and Japanese homes. The
general theme of the series is "The
Post-War Family."
