   Fritz Kunz, Sydney, Australia, writes:
   "More and more one becomes impressed
with the fact that in the American Univer-
sities not nearly enough is done to bring
home to people the necessity for study of
Asia and her problems in a spirit of sym-
pathy and reality. One visualizes a vast
procession of sturdy young men and
women winding in and out of the uni-
versity as the years slide along, concerned
with learning to make a living in larger
proportion than they are concerned with
learning to live. They pass on and become
-America, our United States, a generous
people, an enterprising race, with many
merits, but too well fed, too remote from
the Universal Life, the deeps of Nature,
and their own Over-Souls. In the result
they go on to add to western materialism.
  "Meantime the spiritual East awakens
to modern life. It finds itself throttled by
narrow views by western force, by ar-
rogance. If l!ndia and China awaken as
Japan did, to grasp our western instru-
ments of force, we shall have only our-
selves to thank, we white people.
  "Now competent Indians, widely trav-
eled, tell me that the United States is the
one country which has sufficient intuition
and brotherhood to understand the sub-
jective nature of Eastern peoples. -What
are we doing to educate our youth to -ful-
fill the function of Interpreter? Very lit-
tle. Professor Ross visits India, and I
hope impresses not only his students but
also a large public with the nature of the
struggle that goes on there. That is good,
but how much more remains to be done!
  "I think that if our sleek, strong,
generous, brotherly and ingenious stu-
dents could be touched with a spirit of the
World-soul, if the intuitions could be
stimulated' just a little along lines of
international problems, the United States
would do for the world what she alone can
do: make that gesture which would prove
to the East that in spite of all its com-
mercialism and its materialism, the West
includes one great Nation which has not
forgotten (since 186o) that all men are
brothers; and that not only the American
but the whole human race has rights to
life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
