JAP VICTORY INTERPRETED.
Baptist Divine Believes It Means
Anglo-Saxon "World. Supremacy.
ORION, Mich., Aug. IS. In an address
before the Michigan Baptist assembly
the Rev. R. S. McArthur has presented
a novel interpretation of the Japanese
victory In the present crisis, as Indicat
ing an Anglo-Saxon world supremacy.
He said: '
"If Japan wins It will mark the first
step townrd Anglo-Saxon supremacy of
the world. Japan will lead China; Brit
ain will leau Japan, and America will
lead Britain. The rest of Europe will
follow easily. Look at decadent Portu
gal, bigoted, poverty-stricken Spain,
volcanic ' France, Austria-Hungary,
about to dlf Integrate and so on. Put
them all under the rule of two Anglo
Saxon notions and the world will be for
civilization, peace and Christianity. The
yellow peril is then the golden oppor
tunity for the world."
