Gwen Drew 1
A breath of old China comes to
the Detroit Institute of Arts tonight
when the Chinese Cultural Theatre
Group opens "An Evening in Cathay"
after a successful run in the Mercury
Theatre in New York.
The group incluces members of the
professional and international so-
ciety of Shanghai, and is making an
American tour under the auspices of
the American Bureau for Medical
Aid to China.
Repertoire Is Classical
The show is rightly named "An
Evening in Cathay." It's repertoire is
strictly classical, and includes a scene
from the classic "Lady Precious
Stream," colorful dances to the the-
atre god, Ja Kwan, the dance of a
celestial maiden, which is done with
scarfs by Mrs. Averil Tong, wife of
the counselor of the Kwang-tung
government, -and the impersonation
of an intoxicated queen of old China
L. N. Chang anh known as the most
by Virginia Chang, daughter of Dr.
beautiful girl in Shanghai.
Prof. Chung-loh Wei plays the pi-
pa in one of the 35 technics possible
to the instruments, and a classic or-
chestra composed of unusual in -
struments plays several compositions
during the evening.

Eighteen years ago the 'M' club
started a camp for boys. That year,
1921, the camp was located on Lake
Huron, and was considerably smaller
than the present camp which handles
150 boys in each of two four-week
sesions. In 1923 the location was
changed to Patterson Lake, 25 miles
north of Ann Arbor, and has remained
there ever since.
Camp Handles 150
It's really an amazing camp. 150
boys, most of whom spend the other
48 weeks on m the sidewalks of Ann
Arbor and Detroit, are given one
month to swim, hike, and eat to their
hearts' content under the leadership
of 50 University men.
But the most important feature of
the camp is that this month, instead
of an isolated period in the boy's life,
is tied into the rest of the year by the
close cooperation between the mem-
bers of the camp staff and the social
agencies which recommend the boys.
Diagnose Needs
The primary purpose of the camp is
to diagnose the needs of each camper.
Using certain social techniques, psy-
chology and health tests, staff mem-
bers make careful reports and recom-
mendations to the agencies whose re-
lations with the boy are more vital
than their own. In this way the camp-
ing experiences becomes part of the
child's year-round development.
Tag day's tomorrow. Don't forget
when you pass the man-with-the-pail
that he's not just a campus pest, but
part of a very important drive for a
very important cause. Nickels and
dimes all help, you know.

Japanese Air-Raids Are
Experienced In China
By German Traveler
A typhoon and some 60 air-raids in
war-torn China are only a small part
of the amazing experiences of Mrs.
Ruth L. Wendt, of Germany, who re-
cently visited in Ann Arbor. Resident
of four continents, speaker of five
languages, with a wealth of varied ex-
perience behind her, Mrs. Wendt, who
has recently taken out her first citi-
zenship papers, has a unique contri-
bution to make to American life.
Born and brought up in Germany.
she married and lived in Buenos
Aires, Argentina, for 12 years, re-
turning in 1931 to lecture at the
University of Hamburg in Germany.
She was dismissed two years later be-
cause at the beginning of the Nazi
regime there was no room for women
in intellectual positions in Germany.
Is Interpreter
Then, after two years in Florence,
Italy, she came to America and took
a position as medical interpreter at
ColumbiaUniversity, where she trans-
lated eight languages into English.
How to make money-that is what
you all know over here," she smiled.
'In Europe there are too many class
distinctions. If you are a so-called
educated person, it is not ladylike to
work. To do so is to "lose face" as
the Chinese say. But Americans are
In 1936 she sailed for China to visit
her family, who is living there at
present. Stopping in Japan for a few
days, she was warned to sail for Chi-
na before the end of August when the
typhoon season sets in, but she
thought a few days would make no
difference and prolonged her stay till
Sept. 1. Half-way through the 24-
hour trip, one of the dreaded storms
Storm Threatens
The boat continued its course, with
the passengers in a state of near
panic, hoping to reach Shanghai safe-
ly in spite of it, but when less than
two hours out of port, the course of
the typhoon shifted until it centered
over Shanghai, and they were forced
to head for the open sea immediately,
for to be caught in the center of a
typhoon means certain destruction.
After fighting mountainous waves
and treacherous reefs all night, the
boat was at last able to creep into
port, having taken over twice the
regular time to make the trip. When


it docked, most of Shanghai was un-
de* water,
"Air-raids? We got used to them,"
she stated calmly. They came every
day in fine weather-sometimes at
night. We were comparatively safe in E
the British settlement, for the Ja-
panese prefer not to kill foreigners.
The only thing one can do is to fill
every tub in the hou,e in case they
hit the water-works, and open the
doors to the Chinese who flock to the
foreign settlements for safety."

Lers at first," she added, "but un-
fortunately, they have shown great
Chang-Kai Shek, generalissimo of
the Chinese forces, and his wife are
personal acquaintances of Mrs.
Wendt's. She described the leader as
a man of about 45 with his hair "cut
away short" and a tense face. He
spends all of his infrequent spare
moments reading.
His wife, usually called simply
"Madam," is almst always with him.
She is a remarkable woman, who has
done everything in her power to help
socialize China. She travels, fre-
quently in her own plane, all over her
country, organizing help for the
wounded and establishing orphanages
for the thousands of children left
without home or family. "She is the
soul and spirit of a whole new life in
China," Mrs. Wendt declared.
Mrs. Wendt does not believe that
Japan will ever be successful in her
invasion of China. Japan is attempt-
ing to set up a puppet government in
which she would rule through Chi-
nese agents, but it is very difficult to
find Chinese who are willing to op-
pose Chang-Ka Shek, and, once
found, even more difficult to keep
them in office. At least 50 such turn-
coats have been assassinated.
