Chinese Susceptible To Reason Whicl
Gives Ground For Hope Of
Future Friendliness
"It is especially appropriate tha
the University of Michigan should, al
this time, give its attention to the
affairs. of the far East, especially
China," said Esson M. Gale, commis-
sioner of salt revenue in central China
for the last 12 of his 20 years resi-
dence there, and who will be on the
faculty of the University next year in
the capacity of lecturer in the history
Mr. Gale continued by giving a re-
sume of Chinese history in the last
quarter of 6 century. The attempt to
adjust old customs to new ideas came
from the high class itself, and ul-
timately resulted in the Boxer up-
rising in 1898. After that the Em-
press Dowager adopted a more pro-
gressive policy. The last few years
have witnessed a constant struggle
between two Chinese leaders, Lin and
Sun Yat Sen Is Canonized
Dr. Sun Yat Sen, said Mr. Gale, was
the father of the Chinese revolution.
Canonized, like Lenin, he has become
more popular than 1 ever since his
death. He sought the aid of foreign
powers, and foreign relations, treaties,
etc., have so far stopped all arrange-
ments with the Chinese provinces
policies of Sun Yat Sen.
More recently, Mr. Gale continued,
the surprising successes of the poor)
southern army were explained partly
by the aid of the Russian officers. With
the military success of the Cantonese,
the Nationalists moved their capital
from Canton to Hankow. At Nank-
ing General Chiang Kai Shek has set'
up a separate government of his own.'
Mr. Gale believes that the person-
nel of the present Chinese government
presents a moderness unknown in
China before. The entire race psy-
chology seems to have crystallized un-
der two forces-to rid the land of for-
eign influence and control, and to
rid the land of its servitude.
Foreigners Are Disliked
Young China says that what's
wrong with China is the rights which
foreigners have, which include extra-
territorial concession, tariffs, sub-
stantial administration, and control
of postal customs and salt revenue.
As a result of the general animosity
toward all foreigners the missionaries
have been called upon to abandon
their missions, schools, churches, and
homes. It is the hope of the missions
that the present anti-Christian move-
ment subside as quickly as did the
Boxer uprising, but the two are
scarcely comparable because the
present revolution is much deeper
than the former.
However, notwithstanding the fact1
that western trained Chinese have
been available and have had promi-
nent positions since 1907, Mr. Gale
declares that the postal service and
the rail roads have failed very de-
cidedly since being taken over ex-
clusively by the Chinese. Bags upon

MANAGUA, Nicaragua, July 18.--
There were only two casualties among
the 39 United State marines who, with
a handful of Nicaraguan constabult-
ies, defeated General Sandino, rebel
leader, in a fierce and protracted bat-
tle at Ocopal, Sunday.
Private Michael A. Oblaski, of Rau-
lette, Pa., was killed, and Private
Charles Garrison of Asheville, N. C.,
was seriously wounded. Garrison's
chances for recovery, however, are
said to be good. He was brought to
Managua from Ocopal by aeroplane,
together with a wounded member of
the constabulary.
A . private report, received by the
President from Jefe, politico at Oco-
pal, describes the fighting as terrific.

had more than 500 mien, which would
