Studsnt Unrest In Japan.
The very fact that the students" ore
more nffoeted by the moral tiniest than
any other class of society suggests the
important explanation that the spirit
ual crisis of the nation is at its dawn
and that the students have first been
overtaken by it because they are the
most susceptible and least responsible
class of persons, says K. Asakawa In
May Atlantic. If this be true one may
reasonably expect that their unrest w ill
become clearer and steadier and will
sottu spread over their brethreu in the
remoter parts of the country, ami that
it will, what is more, irresistibly in
vade other classes of society. In what
form and order this will take place is
unknown, but wln can say that he
may not yet live to see a greater and
more universal moral chaos in Japan
than is, today evident to those who
have eves to see?
