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 vantages. 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. FORENSIC TEAM WINS 7 FIRST PLACES TO LEAD IN STATE JR. COLLEGE MEET M. H.
