It is this column’s opinion that ev.
' £r since the Russo-Japanese War
1 over the rich and fertile province of
-Ianchor.a, the struggle in the Or
er.t ha.> continued. Japan, being
situated on an island, is rapidly be
-■ mirg over-populated and seeks
-her 1 elds for expansion for her
an over-flow. China _of coui'se
ou!d be the proper spot upon which
<> expand; hence, she fights China
for this exclusive privilege.
However, Japan realizes further
i that the eyes of the world are focused
| uoon China for another purpose and
that is namely: For exploitation. Ev
erybody knows that China, with her
land rich in natural resources which
modern means of experimentation, re.
| search and engineering have just be
gun to touch above the surface, is a
land of 400,000,000 inhabitants, most
v. hom still live in ignorance.
Japan knows that it would be dan
gerous to allov* any other country to
nterefer with China; she envisions
the idea that if she should conquer by
force, the Chinese, enlighten their
messes intellectually and train the
Chinese in the modern art of war
far'1. She would not only promote
her expansion, but would also perfect
a_ strong and well organized military
machine which could be thrown toget
her with that of Japan and would be
able to master the whole civilized
world, if necessary. She might, one
day in the distant ^ears. be able to
perform this miracle, but its a super
human sized job to tackle, throwing
a small army of vcdl trained soldier*
against a massive and diversified hu
man wrall of 400,000,000 human souls.

death at 2 o’clock the morning of
January 26, when the building that

S their bunks, was blown down at a
prison camp near this city.
Guards extricated the men from the

coals fell on a concrete floor and did
not caus.e a general fire.

MAKING CHILDREN WAIT
(The Literary Service Bureau)
Children are human beings—even
little children. And this should be
remembered in dealing with them.
All of us remember some thing that
seemed unfair. Among these is the
old custom of making children wait
while their elders eat. This was be
cause it was considered unwise and
almost disrespectful to have children
eat at the same table with the older
folk. Fears, anxieties, disappoint
ments, and childish anger were ex
perienced but the little sufferers did
not dare hint of such things. In fact,
as a general thing, they were not
near enough to give any indication of
displeasure. But, was it fair?
Because of such experiences I hare
had my children sit at the table with
the family and with our guests. Not
only is this justice to the children,
but it has its cultural influences.
Children will be more careful, eating
at the tabe with their elders than they
will be eatinc alone. But, anyway,
it seems almost barbarous to make
' children wait and be consumed by the
fear that the supply will be exhausted
—as is true sometimes!
