latex tubes with CX clinchers

I just received some latex tubes I ordered from ECJ. They are 19-23c. Will these work with my clinchers (32c)? Last year I ordered some Challenge latex tubes but can't remember what size they were.

They might "work" in the sense that you could inflate your tire and ride on it. The problem is that they'd be stretched out and hence thinner than is ideal, making them more prone to various types of flatting.

Seems like a bad idea to me.

(the undersized part, not the latex part)

Agreed. I've fixed a flat with a skinnier tube but I try to replace it with the proper size as soon as I can.
