Experiences With People in Orient "Perhaps in 100 years we can educate the Japanese people to some semblance ot decency, and allow them to re-enter the society of nations." That 13 the opinion ol Fred H.' Newman of Iowa Falls, one-time constabulary officer in the Phll- ippines and Oriental traveler, who spoke at the regular luncheon meeting of the Kiwanis club Thursday on "Interesting People I Have Known." Mr. Newnutn discussed types of Filipino, Chinese and Japanese natives whom he dealt with during his »t»y In the orient, showing, by means of the Incident* and characters he mentioned, the ·problems faced In the far east 'and the trait* of the people. The ' Japanese were the only race be . failed to like and fet along with, .-he said--"they'll cheat you every time." - "The Japanese are fanatics," the i speaker said. "Their religion is , fanatic; their social set-up is fanatic; their secret societies, notably ; the Black Dragon, are the most fanatic of all." Mr. Newman told ·how the Black Dragon society, ··founded and for years controlled :by Toyama, had, through its powerful militaristic members,' directed the Jap expansion into Korea, Manchuria and China and the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Mr. Newman recalled the prophetic words of one Filipino of the educated class, who said, more than 25 yean ago, that someday his country woold be ready to govern itself. That prophecy came true, Mr. Newman recalls, ·when, the .Philippines . w e r e granted their Independence by the American congress, effective as soon as the Japanese invader is driven out. .... . . . He also spoke 'of the 'Chinese, ·whom he liked immensely, expressing the hope that China's in- r ternal troubles, as well as her It tragic struggles against the Japanese, soon will be over.
