Japanese Aim at Domination of
Far East, Speaker Tells
Foreigner Would Have No Place
In New Order Seek to Con
Education has suffered greatly in
occupied China, according to S.
Floyd Pannabecker, former Mennon
ite missionary to Kai Chow, China,
who addressed a general meeting of
the Bluffton Public Teachers associa
tion at the Bluffton High school
cafeteria Monday night. Prof. Pan
nabecker recently arrived in this
country and joined his family at
their home on South Lawn avenue.
At the present time he is Bible in
structor at Bluffton college.
Jap Policy Of Asia For Asiatics
Hits American Schools In China
Since the Japanese conflict it is
almost impossible to refer to the
Chinese educational system because
there is little system any more, the
speaker stated. Since the Chiang
Kai Shek government came into
power in 1927 the educational system
in China made great strides.
But even with all of the strides
made it has never been able to take
care of all the young people in China
who desired an education. A para
dox exists in a law hich requires
attendance at elenu .ary schools
but yet the government has been un
able to expand the program suffi
cient to take care of the demand.
A curious situation has resulted
in China in the case of universities.
They have proven to be quite mobile
and have been able to set up and
operate at locations far distant from
the original center. Sometimes they
join with other colleges and Pan
nabecker cited several cases where
three or four colleges were located
on one campus.
Public Schools Closed
The Japanese have practically
closed all of the public schools but
so far have allowed the mission
schools to operate although with
some regulations. They have asked
that textbooks written by Japanese
with the Japanese viewpoint domin
ant be substituted for the Chinese
texts. Also they have insisted- that
all Chinese teachers take some spe
cial courses in order to understand
the Japanese point of view in the
new order they are trying to create
in the Far East.
This viewpoint is summed up by
saying that the foreigner is out of
place in the Far East. Asia for the
Asiatics or .more accurately stated,
for the Japanese, seems to be the
goal desired, Pannabecker stated.
The Japanese have been arranging
in recent years for an exchange of
points of view between China and
Japan. Many students, teachers and
business men are given the advant
age of taking free courses in the
Japanese universities. All expenses
are provided by the Nipponese gov

rounded by several armies all asking
for certain indications of coopera
tion. For example if the missionar
ies accede to Japanese demands then
the Communist army resent it and
may make things unpleasant for the
Much of the Chinese difficulty is
due to the Chinese themselves the
speaker said. They have stressed
family loyalty so much that most of
the Chinese forgot that they were
living in a great nation and that
certain sacrifices to the state were
demanded if their nation were to be
strong. Most of the Chinese would
sacrifice for the family but few
would for the state. The war, how
ever, has brought a strong national
unity and has brought together di
vergent political units.
The speaker concluded with a re
iteration of his belief that China
is too large and too vast a terri
tory to be permanently defeated re
gardless of superiority in mechanical
equipment of any foe.
