Ex - Student Legislator an d
president of the International Stu-
dents Association, Ed Yanne, '50,
from Hong Kong, can undisputed-
ly claim the title of the most active
foreign student on campus.
Transferring to Michigan in
February, 1949, as a sophomore
from Shurtliff College in Illinois,
Yanne ambitiously set out to be-
come an engineer.
TWO WEEKS later, "discover-
ing that engineers are born and
not made," he transferred to lit
school and has remained a poli-
tical science major ever since.
Not content with his two ma-
jor campus positions, Yanne has
also been very active in Can-
terbury Club and this semester
he helped organize the Beacon
Association (for students from
the British Empire and Com-
monwealth of Nations).
As for future plans, he is think-
ing of getting a job connected with
the United Nations, although1
"traveling around Europe and ev-
entually going home" is also a
likely possibility.

Yanne explained that contrary to
popular belief, Hong Kong is not
a Chinese city, but is a British
crown colony that includes a 35-
square-mile island off the coast
of China as well as a portion of
the Chinese mainland.
English is the official lan-
guage, although the vast major-
ity of the 2,000,000 people in
Hong Kong are of Chinese des-
cent, he said.
When the Japanese successfully
invaded Hong Kong in 1941, all
schools were closed as the occupa-
tion troops took over for the next
four years, Yanne said, describing
his eventful life.
"Because of the terrific food
shortage, the Japs encouraged the
people to evacuate the cities and

School of Business Administration,
has been chosen as one of the first
of three members to the newly es-
tablished "Accounting Hall of
The Hall of Fame is sponsored
by the Ohio State University and
elections were held for the first
time last Thursday. Selections
were made by 45 accounting ex-
perts, the University said.

move into the rural areas-which
is how a group of 15 of us escaped
to Chengtu, in free China."
* * *
at Chengtu, the educational center
of free China, Yanne, whose par-
ents are of Chinese descent and
who himself attended the Chinese
school in Hong Kong for nine
years, soon had to withdraw from
the school, because he couldn't
understand the Chinese dialect us-
Following his semester's com-
bat with the Chinese language,
Yanne obtained a job as an in-
terpreter with the American
army at Kunming, home of the
"Flying Tigers." 'The dialect

was one that I could under-
stand," he explained, noting the
distance of 500 miles between
the cities.
Weary of "watching' the war
from the sidelines," Yanne enlist-
ed in the American army in 1944,
and eventually became a staff sar-
geant in the medical corps.

all the other advantages of the
United States-night clubs, beer
and good-looking women."
