- Radio script of the 168th episode of a weekly broadcast presented over station WGY, Schenectady, by Union college in cooperation with the Schenectady forum service. The topic is the Chinese Exclusion Act and whether it should be repealed. Dr. B.A. Garside, affiliated with the United China Relief, advocates for repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act, while Dr. Burges Johnson argues that racial incompatibility requires a continuing ban on Chinese immigration. Garside notes that Japanese propaganda in occupied China constantly emphasizes Americans' sense of racial superiority over the Chinese as a way of stoking pro-Axis, anti-US feeling. He argues that there is no way to rebut such claims as long as the Exclusion Act remains in place. One page contains excerpts of relevant Japanese propaganda broadcasts.
