Chinese Student Pays Visit M. H. Campus;
Speaks On Life And Conditions In Orient
C. K. Djang, of Shanghai,
China, student of the Baptist
Theological Seminary of Louis
ville, Kentucky, visited the Mars
Hill campus March 9, speaking
at the regular chapel hour.
Speaking on “Christ, the Only
Light,” Mr. Djang related bene
ficial, fascinating, and education
al stories of the Orient. He out
lined the social, religious, and po
litical policies of the Chinese, and
pictured the conditions of vari
ous sections of the vast republic
of China. Giving his viewpoints
of the war being carried on with
Japan at the present time, he en
lightened the audience on many
ideas and legends often associated
with the Chinese.
“China is to be of some good
to the world,” he said. “The
Chinese people have a sense of
humor; they are peace-loving, re
sponsive, and religious. China is
the world’s oldest republic that
stands today.” He also stated that
America is the most wonderful
nation on earth and gives unlimit
ed opportunities, whereas China
has very limited educational ad
Mr. Djang is the son of a min
ister and is a graduate of the
University of Shanghai. He has
been in America for the last three
years studying at the seminary in
Louisville. Before coming to
America he was associated with
L. Bunn Olive, former pastor of
Mars Hill and who is now doing
mission work in China.
He expressed his hopes to re
turn to China and aid in the
winning of his homeland to
Christianity. He also spoke of the
fact that he had heard of Mars
Hill before ever coming to
America. Other interesting facts,
such as eating his first “chop-
suey” in San Francisco, and his
observation that in America there
were no two women’s hats just
alike, were included in his con
versations on the campus.
Mr. Djang was accompanied to
Mars Hill by his wife, who is a
student at the W. M. U. Training
School in Louisville.

the auspices of Religious Em

were: Robert Murphy, Bill Kyles,
Lenora Berry, Emma Weatherly,
James Pickering, and Wilma Dale.
Following this. Dr. Moore had
charge of the chapel service

points to be followed in leading
the only life which is in Christ.
“What Christ Has Meant to
Me” was the theme' of the dis
cussion March 3. The program
opened with a vocal solo, “Saved
By Grace”, by Miss Sallie Allen.
The topic was then divided into
three parts given by student rep
resentatives. Bill Therrell, Ruth
Martin, and Robert Seig gave
their interpretations of the topic.
The series were brought to a
close by a message from Dr. 0. E.
Sams on March 4. Giving the ex
amples of the rich young ruler,
Christ clearing the temple of the
money-changers, and following
the deeds of Christ on to Calvary
and the grave, he delivered a stir
ring message on giving our hearts
to Christ. Justin Tune sang “The
Blind Plowman” just preceding
the message by Dr. Sams.
