Chinese Funds
Help Support
U.S. University
Problems Arise in
Renovation of School
By The Associated Press
American prestige may be re-
ported waning in China, but a no-
table exception is an American
university which keeps going part-
ly through Chinese support.
Yenching University is one of
several such American schools in
China. Located near Peiping, it is
the creation of U. S. Ambassador
John Leighton Stuart, who organ-
ized it and served as its president
for more than 20 years.
On the morning of Pearl Harbor
the Japanese army took over
Yenching's campus, where the red
columns and soaring roofs of clas-
sic Chinese architecture conceal
American solidity in concrete and
steel-and a Chinese-American
understanding that is just as solid.
When victory liberated Stuart,
he found the campus in bad shape
because of Japanese neglect and
abuse. He could not then get
money from abroad to reopen, so
Chinese in North China put up the
money. He reopened to freshmen
only-400 of them-in October,
1945.
The government was offering his
Chinese faculty members good
jobs, but tney stuck by Yenching.
The school still needed money, so
they voted themselves salaries too
small to pay for their food, and
lived by seliing off their personal
possessions.
