Serious Trouble In The Orient
The teeming millions in the Orient are about to have
a sharp reduction in their numbers. China is on the blink
of the worst blood bath in the history of that unhappy
nation. India is just short of an outbreak of violence
* which may take the lives of many thousands. The sword
is busy again and may stay busy for a long time to come.
Disease and famine will cut a huge swath from
among those whom war will pass up. .
China and India are thejinost densely populated areas
on earth and when the four horsemen ride there the los'
ses in human life are appalling. But there still ^ill be
. more people per square mile in the Orient when the.pres-
ent situationiare ironed out than anywheue else on earth;
still too many probably to be properly supposed by its
economy. The problems created by overpopulation still
will not be solved. °
It seems too late now to do anything about prevent-
ing" thF civil w¥rs in China aYid India. They are the result
of conditions dating back for ages; conditions which can-
not be corrected overnight.
.) The things that can be done now are two-fold. First,
the United Natio,ns can set up machinery to study and at-
tempt correction of the situation in the.Orient. Second,
the same body can endeavor to arrange—without risking?
another world war. we believe—to prevent opportunist^
Russia from capitilizing on conditions in the Orient to
promote her own interests. v
As the nearest of the Big Four to the trouble, Russia
naturally is rhor^ interested in the outcome than anyone
else. But her political maneuvers of late would indicate
that any action she took would not be prompted by a feel-
ing of humanitarianism toward suffering neighbors. Rus-
sia still needs a lot of things before her people can be giv-
en the standard of living communism promised them.
Some of these might be picked up by adroit "interven-
tion" in the troubles of her neighbors, China and India.
