When an American scholar visits

India was not only rich and prosper-
ous, but well known to the world in
the olden times. It is the avarice of
the foreign powers that has put India
in the condition she is today.
India was well known to the world
before the Christian era. Through her
trade and commerce she was known
to the Phoenicians, Abyssinians, Syr-
ians, Greeks, and Romans. Through
her Buddhist missions she was known
to China, Japan, and the islands of
Images Signify High Ideals
The Carvan images of certain deities
which have been found today in this
country signify that there were peo-
ple here who, in even those days were
idealistic like the people of India. It
gives us a clue that the Indo-Aryans
might perhaps have migrated to this
country and settled here. Many ex-
amples can be cited to prove that
Hindusthan was known to the world
at large centuries before Vasco-De-
Gama ever went to India.
In the time of Solomon, the Hebrew
ruler of Israel, a trade was established
between India and Syria, Palestine,
and other countries. This is proved
by the Sanscrit words which appear
in the bible as names of articles of
export, such as ivory, apes, peacocks,
and sandlewood. King Solomon him-
self sent a fleet to the Indian ocean
to bring gold to his country, with
which to build Jerusalem.
Traded with European Nations
In Roman times the Indians were
trading with European nations. So
eager did the Romans become for In-
dian articles that they commonly paid
as much as 10 times the original price.
During the rule of Darius the Great,,
king of Persia (521 to 485 B. C.), In-
dia was so rich that she attracted his
attention. Darius conquered a part
of India and carried away wealth
amounting to eight million pounds
sterling. Alexander the Great invaded
India, attracted largely by her fabu-

ATTCKS FRANCK'S TAL
CARLOS G. LOPEZ, '17E, OBJECTS
TO STATEMENTS MADE ABOUT
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Last I Wednesday Mr. Harry A.
Franck gave in Hill auditorium an
illustrated lecture on South America.
This lecture is apt to leave in the
minds of his listeners a wrong im-
pression of that section of the con-
tinent about which he spoke. The pur-
pose of this article is to bring out the
true meaning of his lecture and to ex-
plain the reason why Mr. Franck was
not in a position to give a lecture of
the scope suggested by his advertise-
In the first place the pictures, with
the exception of a few, and the lecture
presented by Mr. Franck are not rep-
resentative of the development of civ-
ilization of the countries which he vis-
ited, but rather of the life, and pe-
culiarities of the Indians with whom
he dealt, and who compose the lowest
type of the South American races.
To present such pictures and call
them representative of those countries
is almost as absurd as if I were to
travel in this country through the
South or through those estates where
Indian reservations are located, and
after observing the life and peculiar-
ities of the negroes and Indians, tell
the people of South American about
them and their primitive ways of liv-1
ing, and leave in their minds the im-
pression that what I have presented
to them about these peoples is truej
throughout the United States.I
Mr. Franck traveled through South'
America in a way, and with an attire
which probably made it almost impos-
sible for him to get in touch with the
educated people of the countries he
visited. /Not because in South Amer-
ica people are judged entirely by the
clothes they wear, but because there,
like in many other countries, where
the class distinction is marked, one
roust appear dressed in conformity
,ith his class before he is given due
attention. Mr. Franck, accordingly,
iade almost no mention of the edu-
eated element in South America, and
certainly is hardly qualified to give a
lecture on such a broad subject as
"South America." The more suitable
title for his lecture would be "The
Life, Peculiarities and Types of In-
(ians of South America."
It is true that he traveled in a way
that enabled him to see and remem-
uer things better than the average
Lourist, yet his lecture is nothing else
whan a detailed account of the oddities
of an ignorant people and designed to
Keep the listeners in a state of hilarity
during the presentation of his subject.
it may be interesting, but it certainly
was not the instructive lecture which
atudents and people of this city, who
nave heard of the wonders of South
America, expected to hear. Thus he
is unable to do justice to the civilized
people of South America; by talking
only of Indian life and costumes he
causes the listeners to believe that
all the people of South America, their
life and commodities must be of the
types shown by his pictures.
It is this wrong impression left in
the minds of the listeners that I wish
to rectify. I, as a resident of Quito,
positively know that a person who
goes to Ecuador, or to any other coun-
try of the western coast of South
America, with the idea of living com-
fortably and of meeting educated and
cultured people, can do so just as well
as in any other place on the face of

Prof. Scott Nearing of the Univer-

Shortly before he had been dismiss-

Billy Sunday in which he said:
"You are preaching in a winter, al-
most without parallel for the amount
of distress and suffering among the
poor, yet you have mainly directed
your invectives against the churches,
Are the churches the chief culprits?
Is not the world beginning to realize
that today the most sinister crimes
against the ideals of Christ's religion,
are committed by the system of in-
dustry for profit, a system which pays
wages so low that even if the poor
were made spiritually and morally
perfect, they would be still abjectly,
destitute. Interpret your doctrine of
salvation in terms of modern life.
Would not Jesus if he were face to
face with a multitude of $10 a week
