Education Is Encouraged In China

Georgia and Harvard, were very
anxious to have her come to America.
There's nothing in China to com-
pare with football gamies, Miss Chang
said, but there are soccer, basketball
competitions, volleyball, and practi-
cally all the other sports. And there
are intercollegiate leagues and rival-
ries just the same as here.
Calls Dancing An Art
She calls dancing a western art,
but there is some dancing, most
popular in the larger cities of the
East. She said that the government
is doing everything in its power to
encourage the youth to go to school
and that the project has been very
successful. There is no conscription
among the students. Those who can-
not afford schooling are given free
tuition and she believes that people
are more serious and fervent than
ever before for education. She also
added that exams are much the same
Social life is much more reserved
and formal than in America. Dates
are usually group affairs and dancing
movies, hiking or bicycle trips are
very popular pastimes. On the whole,

there is much less mixed group life.
Women Like Careers
Women are just as anxious for
careers and more or less in the same
fields as in America. Many of the
foremost leaders have graduated
from Michigan, which is very well
known and credits from which are
highly accepted in China.
The coeds wear the usual Chinese
dress; there is no definite wardrobe,
nothing to typify the college girls
as sweaters and skirts or saddle shoes.
The hair is worn much the same as
we wear ours and permanents are
popular. Make-up, however, is used
much more sparingly and'more con-
Is Awed At New York
She was awed at New York, as she
thinks most people are, but she says
that Shanghai is much more ob-
viously a cosmopolitan city, even
though it is on a smaller scale. She
believes that Shanghai typifies a
real blend of oriental and occidental
Summing it all up, Miss Chang said
that "people are pretty much the
same everywhere you go."
