Council Discusses US Far East Aims

Holcombe, Reischauer and Howe on Crimson Network

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Tonight's forum on "War Aims in the Far East" will present the first constructive work of Harvard's new Council on Post-War Problems and will indicate the general method that the Council will follow in the future.

In order that the meeting may be broadcast over the Crimson Network it has been shifted from the Lowell House Common Room to the Winthrop House Junior Common Room. It is scheduled for 7:30 o'clock and will be open to the public.

The three main speakers include Walter S. Howe, recently returned from the consular service in China, Arthur N. Holcombe, professor of Government, and Dr. Edwin O. Reischauer, professor of Far Eastern Languages.

Round Table Discussion

These men will initiate the round table discussion by outlining the subject as a whole in 15 minute speeches. Howe will talk on the historical background to the war, Professor Reischauer on the economic stakes in the conflict, and Professor Holcombe on the political setup that will make a lasting peace possible.

Following this the ideas of each speaker will be amplified in discussion with the committee of the Council that has been working on the problem. A question and answer method will be used in order to bring out as fully as possible the obstacles to peace.

Principles to Be Set

The object of the discussion is to set down as clearly as possible the general principles that must be our aim in the Far East. It is hoped the debate will show both the principles and the factors that must be overcome in their attainment.

The Council will be devoted directly to using the historical evidence of the past 20 years to avoid the debacle of Versailles.
