COLLECTIVE SECURITY ADVOCATED BY CASTLE

TALK SPONSORED BY 1941 UNION COMMITTEE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Advocating a program of collective security, William R. Castle '00, former under-secretary of State, last night urged the application of the Neutrality Act against China and Japan in a talk on the Far Eastern situation given in the Union.

A member of the board of overseers, and of the Republican National Committee, Castle spoke under the auspices of the 1941 Union Committee as part of its program to present a number of distinguished speakers during the year.

Chinese Skillful At Publicity

Newspapers don't give us a clear picture of the situation, he said, because the Chinese are so much more skillful at propaganda than the Japanese. China is a poor land for colonizing, having a bad climate and already full of Chinese.

Japan's defense of her actions on the ground that the United States and Great Britain have done similar things in the past doesn't hold water because the United States broke no treaties in similar enterprises, Castle said.
