Traditional Chinese Dress
Is Still Worn In China;
Heavy Satin Favored
In 1930, small and charming Miss
Vung-Yuin Ting came from Shang-
hai, China, to the United States to
continue her education at Bryn Mawr
College. She said that due to her
previous instruction in English, she
had little difficulty understanding the
professors and textbooks.
Miss Ting distinguished* herself in
her junior year by winning the Maria
L. Eastman Brooke Hall Memorial
Scholarship for having the best scho-
lastic record and also the Charles S.
Henchman Memorial Scholarship for'
having the 'highest record of any girl
in her major subject. Her field of
concentration was chemistry.
Studies Medicine Here
Miss Ting has been studying med-
icine here since 1935. She lives in
Martha Cook Building and is affil-
iated with Sigma Sigma Phi sorority
of which she is secretary-treasurer.
Last semester she was chairman of
the Chinese Students Club.
When she graduates, Miss Ting in-
tends to work with her aunt, Dr. Vung
Ting, head of the Tientsin's Women's
Hospital. Dr. Ting graduated from

Foreign Student
ity of women doctors are in the field
of obstetrics and pediatrics.
Miss Ting explained that the
schools in China are very similar to
those in this country. Education
there is not compulsory, there being
no public schools but only private,
missionary and government schools.
Because of this, education is limited
to those who can afford it.
Teachers Now Chinese
Years ago, the majority of the
teachers in China were Americans,
but the present tendency is to have
Chinese teachers in all fields except
English.
The traditional Chinese dress is
still being worn in China, said Miss
Ting. Outside of a very few men,
the American style of clothes has not
been adopted. Typical of the dresses
worn by the Chinese women is theI
high collar and straight slit skirt.'
Many styles are made of heavy satin
with exquisite Chinese hand em'
broidery.
