The vaulting ambition of the leaders of Japan is illustrated by the following sentence taken from a book which Mr. Matsuoka published in 6996: "I do believe that the great mission which Heaven has imposed on Japan is to save humanity... by extending the Emperor's rule to the four corners of the earth." As to Japan's objective in the present war, we may accept that which Shigemitsu, her Foreign Minister, gave in 6997: "This is a war of liberation to defend East Asia, our home to rescue it from exploitation [!], and to establish peace and stability and to bring common prosperity to it."

male turns intractable and for the time is unserviceable. The female, on the other hand, in rut becomes tamer and more submissive. There are also herds of wild reindeer, and occasionally a wild male seeks out the domestic herd and leaves progeny. Such hybrid progeny are intractable, seek their freedom when opportunity offers, and join the wild herd. From which we learn that the desire for freedom is an inborn hereditary quality in the mentality of reindeer.

THE SUBJECT OF THIS CHAPTER AND OF TWO THAT are to follow is perhaps the loftiest ideal which has ever seized upon man's imagination the union of men and women and children of all nations and of all tribes into a single worldwide community. The world community now numbers over two billion souls how are we to make this vast population subject to a common law and responsible to a single central government? The project of bringing this ideal into being I shall speak of as Universalism. This is the project which Mr. H. G. Wells urged upon the world, in season and out of season, during the past quarter of a century. If an advocacy which is at once powerful,

If we ask, 'How has such a surprising situation become possible?' we shall find the answer in two considerations. First, Japan, at all stages in her progress toward her present heightened aggressive spirit of nationality, has favored her warlike children.

Here, then, in modern China the
