KJEW YORK.—People who send
^ questions to radio quiz pro
grams have been missing a chance
to collect on “Who is the president
China’s President China?”
The usual
Revered as Fount answer, as
Of Ancient Wisdom "V'qu^
tion, is Chiang Kai-shek—the gen
eralissimo and not the president
Lin Sen, serene and venerated pa
triarch, has been president of China
for 10 years. He could be called
doctor, and he has many honorary
titles, but he likes to be called Mr.
Lin Sen. Just now, he is casually
and obscurely In the news, with
word of powerful generals making
pilgrimages to his peaceful retreat,
not to talk war, but to visit him as
they might a priest or physician.
He is a benign old gentleman,
bespectacled, with a snow-white
goatee, a scholar and an artist,
wise and humorous and, above
all, serene. He Is one of the
most famous chlrographcrs of
China and, so that he may quiet
ly practice his art, he made a
studio in a ruined garrison, with
walls 10 feet thick. There, on
bamboo paper, faced with silk,
he copies the classics in swift,
beautiful brush strokes, school
ing himself in their wisdom. Sun
Fo, president of the executive
yuan, takes care of the merely
temporal and practical details
of the presidency. Mr. Lin Sen
Is free to practice wisdom and
virtue and impart It to his peo
ple In beautiful characters.
Mr. Lin Sen was a missionary stu
dent in San Francisco’s Chinatown,
studied western civilization diligent
ly and, returning to China, preached
a careful distinction between a civi
lization and a culture. He said Chi
nn must be modernized, and Joined
Dr. Sun Yat Sen, to that end, but
Insisted that China would lose its
soul if it took only guns and ma
chines from the west—that force
alone always failed, even when it
seemed to be triumphant. He main
tained that true morality would in
the end prevail even over bombs
and bullets. But the latter, he be
lieved, were all right in their place
and In 1931 he became president, as
the advocate of vigorous resistance
against the Japanese aggression.
His gods have generously answered
for him an ancient Chinese prayer:
“May your writing wrist be as lim
ber as a willow-wythe.”
JOSEPH B. EASTMAN used to be
a social settlement worker in his
young days. It has been apparent
that in this he experienced a cer

sionment as
*Natural’ as New to the grand
. D solution, for
Transport Boss in his later
years he has been a pragmatic lib
eral and it is as such that he tackles
one of the most important jobs of
the war, as chairman of the new
office of defense transportation. All
he will have to do will be to gear
all transport into a working unit,
to keep things moving on railroads,
air lines, truck lines, inland water
ways, coastwise and inter-coastwise
shipping lines and pipelines.
It was a much simpler job when
William G. McAdoo took it over in
the first World war, with plane and
motor transport negligible. Mr.
! Eastman, through his long service
as chairman of the Interstate Com
merce commission and as former
co-ordinator of the railroads, has
grown into it.
Socially minded from his Am
herst and Phi Beta Kappa days,
he became a hard - working
"good neighbor” at the South
End house of Boston, then coun
sel for the Boston Street Rail
way employees and later a
member of the Massachusetts
Public Service commission.
When W'oodrow Wilson named
him to the ICC, he wrote a re
gretful letter saying he would
like to serve, but there was a
bar sinister In his career—he
was a Republican. Mr. Wilson
laughed that off and Mr. East
man has served under five Pres
idents. Supreme Court Justice
Brandels had recommended his
original appointment. Railroad
moguls like him personally and
denounce his ideas.
He threw a switch on the first Van
Sweringen merger proposal in 1927,
later on on L. F Loree’s proposed
merger of the Katy and the Cotton
Belt with his own Kansas City
Southern, and in valuation, rate rise
cases, receive.-hips, recaptures,
mergers and the like he has been
sharply at odds with the rail barons
and definitely aligned with the drive
toward firmer governmental control.
Senate Progressives got themselves
into a great lather in 1929, prepar
ing to fight and die for their demand
that he be reappointed But Presi
dent Hoover fooled them by doing
just ihat.

Russia’s Attitude
Toward Japan Has
Strong Influence on
War’s Trend . . . Navy
Long Expected to Fight
(Bell Syndicate—WNU Service.)
WASHINGTON —If there were a !
unified high command over the
forces of the democracy right now
there is little doubt what would be
the first step. Russian bombers
would be rushed to attack Japan,
where they would seek out her oil
stores—all above ground since the
1923 earthquake — her munition
plants, her harbors and, later on, j
her warships, transports, supply
ships and tankers.
This would be done because Rus
sia has enough air power in east
ern Siberia, in the opinion of mili
tary experts here, to crush Japan.
This would stop the Nipponese in
their tracks not only in Malaya, the
Philippines and the Netherlands In
dies, but also in China.
The Russians still have that great
air force in the Far East for the
simple reason that, badly as they
have needed it, especially in the
early stages of the German invasion
of European Russia, the Soviet did
not trust Japan. They feared an
attack in the back despite their
fairly recent treaty of amity with
the little brown brothers, for the lit
tle brown brothers have no more re
gard for the sanctity of treaties
than Adolf Hitler has.
No one, of course, knew Just
where Japan was going to strike.
For Japan is known, and has been
known for years, to aspire to domi
nation of Asia, all the way to Suez,
and of all the Pacific islands, includ
ing Australia. In fact the Japanese
have rather flaunted their aspira
tions. They have not concealed their
desire to take over control of terri
tory which now is vested in the So
viet, China, Britain, France, the
United States, Holland, and various
independent or partially independ
ent states.
Moreover, despite Japan’s all-out
attack on the British and the United
States forces and holdings in the
Far East, she did not withdraw her
large armies from the Siberian bor
der. On the contrary she kept them
poised there, ready for an instant
blow the moment Russia was so
hard pressed in the West that she
would be compelled to weaken her
forces in the Far East.

Russia and Britain
Play Same Came
Russia, however, played the game
which the British played in Septem
ber, 1940, and thereby probably pre
vented a complete German victory
at that time. Britain took it in
bombing, but never risked ALL of
her air force at one time. So Goer
ing never achieved the complete
knockout of the British air force,
which would have made the island
of Britain another Flanders.
Russia similarly took the pound
ing in the West, which seemed to
the world to be threatening Lenin
grad, Moscow and Sevastopol, but
never risked eastern Siberia!
When the hour arrived for the
Japanese attack, the Japs thought
Hitler had won complete victory in
European Russia. They had been
told that Moscow would fall in a few
days. That is what the rest of the
world expected up to a short time
before the news of the Jap attack
on Pearl Harbor, the Philippines,
and Hong Kong. It is what every
one, including the Japanese, thought
when the attacking forces left Ja
But the attack did not include Si
beria! Why? Because the Japanese
knew through their own intelligence
service that Russians had NOT
weakened their forces in eastern Si
beria. They knew an attack on Si
beria would mean an air attack by
the Russians on Japan. And they
knew they could not take it.
Stalin knows it too. He couldn’t
help but know it. So it will be in
teresting to watch developments.

Navy Long Expected
War With Japs
Ever since 1904, or since the
Russo-Japanese war, most of our
own naval officers, and officers of
the British navy as well, have fig
I ured that sooner or later the United
States and Japan would have a war.
Since the Washington arms confer
ence, in the winter of 1921-1922, our
own and the British naval officers
have been unanimous in their con
viction that sooner or later this war
between Nippon and Uncle Sam
would come.
The writer was at Pearl Harbor
in 1925, and was attacked, along
with correspondents of the Now
York Times and the Chicago Trib
i une. for not informing the Ameri
can public about the spying which
the Japanese had done on our na
val maneuvers, just then completed.
The attack was made by Admiral
Coontz, referee in the war game, in
the presence of some 20 junior of
