Notice: Attention of all concerned,
and particularly of those having of-
fices in Haven Hall, or the Western
portion of the Natural Science Build-
ing, to the fact that parking of cars
n the driveway between these two
auildings is at all times inconvenient
to other users of the drive and some
times results in positive danger to
other drivers and to pedestrians on
the diagonal and other walks. You
are respectfully asked not to park
there, and if members of your family
gall for you, especially at noon when
traffic both on wheels and on foot is
heavy, it is especially urged that the
car wait for you in the parking space
adjacent to the north door of Uni-
versity Hall. Waiting in the drive-
wy blocks traffic and involves con-
fusion, inconvenience and dange
jjust as much when a person is sitting
in atcar as when the car is parked

New Deal Not
New To China,
Says Lecturer
New Deal policies have twice been
tried in China, and both time aston-
ishing developments resulted, an in-
terview with Dr. Y. Z. Chang, lecturer
in Chinese at the University, disclosed
Wang Mang, the maternal grand-
father of an emperor, in the first cen-
tury, and Wang An Shih, poet, states-
man and reforfner in the 11th cen-'
tury, both inaugurated extensive re-
forms of a radical nature-veritable
New Deals. In both cases, complica-1
tions and personal elements obtrud-
ed to interfere with the development
of what was at first believed to be
sound and much needed reforms.
To Form Study Material
This and other materials will form
the subject of a course on Chinese
civilization to be given this summer
in the Institute of Far Eastern Stu-
dies. In addition to this study, Dr.
Chang will conduct a course on Chi-
nese literature, for which a series of
lectures on literary history and criti-
cal and aesthetic principles will be
given. Translations of masteipieces
are to be studied tn reference -to the
original works.
Chinese Not Difficult'
The Chinese language, Dr. Chang
said, is really no more difficult than
other languages. Its relatively simple
grammar should recommend it to the
student. The only obstacle in the way
is a psychological one; people have
so long believed that it is difficult be-
cause it seems so radically different.
The removal of this psychological ob-
stacle, the use of good textbooks or a
syllabus and, most important of all,
good teachers like Professor Kennedy
and Mr. Yen, who are going to teach
Chinese this summer, guarantee the
success of any student who plans to
devote the reqhisite amount of time
to it, Dr. Chang declared.
