A New China?

A New China?

Dear Sir,—Your reporter states Professor Goddard fell that Mao's plan of building a new nation could be thwarted n the non-Communists would put all the money they spend on armaments into cheap propaganda."

From this one may gather that Professor Goddard has no desire to see the Chinese build "a now nation" If it is to be done under the control of Mao tse Tung. The fact that the Chinese have no other likely means of improving their living conditions but under Communism does not seem to interest him. Apparently (it port is accurate) Professor Goddard would advocate that the West resort to even such generally "unwestern" methods as the distribution ol "cheap propaganda" to prevent them doing so!

If such are indeed his views, it is" rebel that one reads that Professor Goddard was for twenty years a professor of Chinese history—the assumption being that he has at last retired. Yours etc.,
