MR. HAN SUYIN
DR. HAN SUYIN INFORMS STUDENTS
ON CHINESE HISTORY
Wednesday night, February 15,
Dr. Han Suyin appeared before the
St. Mary’s student body and lectured
on the history of Ghina.
Dr. Flan prefaced her lecture with
the idea that most of the histories of
Ghina have been written by scholars
of other nationalities and that she in
tended to present the history of
Ghina from the Ghinese point of
Dr. Han outlined the important
events of Ghina from the year 1840
up to present. She marked the be
ginning of today’s Ghina as May 4,
1919, for this date marked a cul
tural revolution in Ghina in which
a complete reversal of attitude oc
curred. This revolution was anti-
Gonfucius, anti-feudal, feminist, and
anti-imperialist. Dr. Flan stated that
the years from 1919 to 1949 were
years of revolution, for over 1,000
wars were fought during this time.
During this period in 1921, the
Gommunist Party was founded in
Ghina. Dr. Han went on to say that
it is now impossible to avoid a revo
lution in Ghina and that if the revo
lution succeeds, Ghina may become
the economic model for all of Asia.
During the reception after the lec
ture, Dr. Flan answered many ques
tions of the students and faculty.
She was asked if she thought Mao
Tse Tung was still active, and she
answered that she felt he was quite
well and active, when she saw him
in August. She also felt that he
would be alive for another 10 years.
During the discussion, Mr. Tate
asked her to convince him that the
U. S. should not be in Viet Nam.
Sbe answered that military power
was the most unlikely way to gain
dominion over Viet Nam and that
the U. S. was only serving Russian
interests by using military force in
Viet Nam. Sbe said that she thought
the U. S. position was silly.
Dr. Han’s long awaited visit was
certainlv worthwhile, for she ac
complished her purpose of present
ing the Ghinese view of Ghinese
She gave the students a new per
spective for viewing the events ol
