GlobeGazclte manaKJnc editor in tbe course ol a tour through South America as one of party of is foesli or the Carnecia Endowment for International Peace Number 95 By W EARL HALL ON THE ATLANTIC TO THE EAST OF CUBA China will never be beaten by Japan This was the prediction forcibly expressed o f Sam Young a cultured C h i nese just now completing sev en years of ser vice as minister for his coun try in Brazil In Rio de Ja neiro I heard it said that Mr Young was the most popular member of the foreign diplo matic corps and the earnest w EAKL farewell given to him at the docks was certainly evidence of this On the ship he and his charming daughter have won the friendship of all As we talked on the deck last night a ship orchestra blared forth ils South American mu sic more percussion than tune and dancers disported them selves in Congas Rhumbas Cariocas and Tangos W The thing the Japanese didnt take into account observed the twinklyeyed little oriental was the Chinese spirit Today they know about it Liberty is dearer to my people than life itself But whats going to be the end of it all I asked him Young replied were going to have to drive the last Japanese out of China It may take a long thats what is going to be done Mr Young one of the first Chi ese graduates of an American uni versity is now headed back to Chungking government seat for a service which he either doesnt know or declines to describe He was graduated from the Uni versity of California in 1904 and later took graduate work at Co lumbia He speaks a flawless English as does his daughter and seems steeped in American tradi tion His extended diplomatic service has included the consul generalship at New York and the ministership at Mexico City as wellas in Brazil Mr Young spoke feelingly of United States friendship for China down through the years and expressed a hope that perhaps in her present struggle for exis tence against an aggressor totali tarian power China was some what evening up the score It seems rather clear he said that if Japan was not so fully engrossed in her ivar against China she would be far more actively at the side of Germany and Italy against the States as well as against Great Britain W Mr Young foresees a long struggle in Europe but he believes completely in an ultimate victory of the democratic ideal In hi view the productive might of United States will be the decisive factor as it was back in 1917 and other important dignitaries juoi Luat vuuy actually rate less wus ueiayuo several no tention than members of the when 500 feet of track wasl younger
