Other members of the drive com- est and prettiest of the celebrated Soong sisters, was not the result of a family quarrel, as reported, and had nothing to do with politics, according to Dr. Theodore Hsi-En Chen, professor of Asiatic studies. “It's largely a matter of the lady's health,” declared Dr. Chen in an interview yesterday when he explained some of the recent upsets in China's muddled governmental situation. “There is no doubt that Mme. Chiang is a political force in China, but she left there because Dr. Chen pointed out that this fact in itself would make the political situation very delicate. “In any country in time of war the strength of that government depends on the successful conduct of the war,” said Dr. Chen. Declining morale has also brought with it much corruption. Equipment has been sent to China by the United States, but it has not been adequate for the needs of the Chinese army. This has been one of the irritant factors in China's in- she was seriously ill and needed ! tricate political problems Faculty contributions, which are | mittee were Virginia Whitehead, expected to swell the Trojan total, head of dorm representatives and have not yet been received by the sorority pledges; Midge del Bondio.

Whatever the domestic situation is with her and her husband, I doubt that there will be a formal | separation,” said Dr. Chen. Chinese morale at the present time is low. China has now been at war for seven and a half years, and after this length of time struggling Today China is in a more serious plight than at any other time in the past seven and a half years of war. For the first time the Japanese have succeeded in gaining control of the railroads and they are cutting China in half. All of this has a bearing on the political situation. Chiang Is surrounded by groups ill-equipped against an army which representing divergent political possesses every modern implement | views, and the Influences of these groups go with the ebb and flow of the tide of war. “More American aid to China’s armies will strengthen the influence of the liberal group,” said Dr. Chen. In regards to the communist situation, said Dr. Chen, the arrival in Chungking last week of the communist leader, raises the hope of some kind of settlement. “The communists oppose the control of the government by the Kuointang. Tne question is whether they will be willing to be just one of the political parties in China or whether they will attempt to seise control of the government.” China’s relations with the United States are all right. Dr. Chen believes that this was shown by tha fact that Maj. Gen. Albert Wede-meyer said that plans and recommendations made by him to Chiang had been accepted. “The Stillwell dispute was largely a matter of personalities,” concluded Dr. Chen.
