Fare All the Facts of China
Instead of Only a Few
Like Katherine Mayo in lirr hook “Mother India,” 1 lie
erstwhile lecturer Sam (SrnlhweM painted a onesided picture
of an Oriental people at assembly yesterday morning.
Frankly attempting t'< “face the facia” ill China, (Irath
well explained that due to distance, cost of eabh's and misrep
resentation of news, China was not understood by Americans.
The read ion of the Chinese students at Oregon is typified
by the communication in an adjoining column.
What do the people who heard Orathwel! now think of
t Mi inn ?
Most of the students present have never been to China.
If they went, there, they could sec among more pleasant things,
conditions similar to those Grathwcll depicted. "With excep
tions, the facts he presented were correct. Only his interpreta
tion, because of his attempt to he sensational, was inaccurate.
China is economically backward; China has less “public
niindcdncss” than the United States; Chinese people may often
“worship ancestors ”, to a detrimental degree; some Chinese
traders of the weaker sort are “avaricious;” Chinese laundries
may be a “myth.”
Students should not pass judgment on the basis of such a
one sided picture
lie went a liMle~Uio far once or twice in bis implications.
When he assumes that the Chinese are an “avaricious pimple”
he oversteps the hounds of fact. When the late Murray War
ner was employed by the American Trading company in and
about Peking, and during seven years of private enterprise
there- he did not find il necessary to use written contracts
upon any Occasion with any of the many Chinese business men
with whom be came in contact. As in any country, there are
Chinese who break their word. Most oT them are reliable; the
integrity of the educated cultured class as a whole is unques
So it, is wise to consider the other side of Chinn—the
good tlm intelligent political, economic, and educational load
ers who are cooperating in a concerted effort, to forge the
future of an indestructible people, a fourth of the world’s
population, on the anvil of history.
Mr. Gml-li well’s lent lire yesterday jvresenlcd one phase
of truth. When the peoples of the world know the truth about,
others, when the iniquities, oppression, injustice, waste and
strifes of the I'nited States', no loss than of other nations, are
made clear to humanity, the sooner will the wrongs he righted.
Rut care and discretion, and a critical altitude of mind
mud bo called into play lo uift I ho true and I lie false in our
appraisal of the farts of life. In the ease id' China, let us not
be too sure as a result of the specific, instances from which
lirathwell makes his appeal, that the “gun boat policy” of
present imperialism is justified.
If we are lo “face the fads,”
until we have “faced all the fads.”
Id. us not pass judgment
Athletic Awards Made
Democratic at Oregon
1 low gratifying to realize 111; 11 a ft of ;ill tile “probes"
ul' quest ioliald’e expediency conduct etl by the student emmeil
t hat this august body of student government alone' with the
executive eonneil should do something really eoimuendahle.
The Inner,aid commends without reservation the deeision
to award the same kind of athletie letter to successful repre
sentatives in every sport.
Athletes in the various sports nun not unanimously favor
the art ion because of personal pride amf jealousy. lint the
move is a wise one lor the student body at large. Oregon is
again the vanguard of progressive student legislation.
The outstanding advantage of a similar letter awarded for
either so called “major" or “minor" sport is that of democ
racy in athletics, and the diminishing of unnecessary emphasis
on one type of physical accomplishment.
If there is a reasonable charge against the athletic situa
lion in \merican colleges, it is that so much emphasis is givefi
to a limited few players on foot ha 11 teams. There are other
sports worth recognizing, and the student leaders at Oregon
acted nobly in this courageous Action.
The ideal situation in collegiate athletics prevails in Scot
land where players representing leading uni versifies play
iile game for the gallic', sake; they furnish their own equip
mrnt and regalia and pay laundry and cleaning bills them
selves. We do not predict that Oregon basketball men will

lines of athletic endeavor.
We caution the student emmeil and executive council to

WAS THE SPEAKER RIGHT?
Personally, I liatu to criticize any
body. In fact, I liatc to write any
thing. Hut the situation lias forced
me to say something about Mr.
(iratliwell’s speech in the assembly
Wliat Mr. (iratliwell said may be
true, but as far as 1- am informed
by my Chinese friends and as far as
1 have read in Chinese and Japan
ese magazines, 1 have never heard of
several things that he said. In
fact, olfe of my Chinese friends,
soon after the assembly,’ told me
that 1 have lived and learned little
of China in the, early twenty years
of my own life in China, but 1
have never seen nor heard such
tilings. I am hot denying the facts
that such things exist, but I like |
to say this much, that is what my]
Chinese friends have seen in China'
during their childhood and youth,
and What they have read about
China in the light of their maga
zines cannot be false.
There seems some prejudices and
discrepancies in his own interpreta
tion and that of missionaries, es
pecially because many missionaries
in China, due to the unsuc.cessfill
ness of their attempts, exaggerate
the worst of China. In this sense
Professor Hitssell’s interpretation in.
"The Problems of China,” is more
near to the truth than Mr. Uratli
