Sir—I have failed. I did not look for suport, but merely hoped that some students would perhaps examine the potential danger of Asian expansion Into the countries of the Pacific, Surely, Asia cannot indefinitely support her seedling millions, nor will her countries continue much longer to tolerate agricultural conditions that leave her population, for the most part, at little more than starvation level, With continued aid, we help to improve the economic Status in Asia, yet. at the same time, we also contribute to an increased population as a result of the improved living standard.. What happens when numbers get out of control? They overrun Other regions around them and keep on overrunning in a sort of chain reaction until they have managed to obtain enough land to support themselves, What happens to all those who have given aid? One need only look at Kenva or the Congo to see what gratitude is given in return European effort and industry.
If in the defence of one's country it means to be branded a racist then I must submit to this abuse.
