Chinese Student Attends
U' After War Experience

Football Weekend Promises Unusual Themes for Parties

On this campus there is a junior
coed, Ann Chen, who has been a
witness to two dreadful wars
which have separated and chased
her family from their native land,
When Miss Chen was two years
old, the Japanese invaded China.
Their home was bombed and con-
ditions were so bad that Miss
Chen and her mother went to
Singapore in search of refuge.
At this time Mrs. Chen was ex-
pecting another child. Proper food
and care were impossible to obtain
in China. According to the pa-

to Shanghai, China. Fortunately,
they were able to find Chen and
the family once again found peace.

However, this peace did not last
for a long time. Soon after the
Chens became settled, the Chinese
Communists started another war
with the Chinese Nationalists and
again the Chen home was scatter-
Once again Mrs. Chen and her
daughters sought refuge in Sing-
apore, while Chen stayed to help
his country.
Miss Chen's education was in-
terrupted by the war, when there
was no school. After the war she
took a placement test and was put
in junior high school, although
she was younger than the average
junior high student.

Miss Chen when she realizes that

and educated in China. They came
to this country to .obtain their
PhD degrees at the University.
While living here, the Chens
met, were married, and continued
their studies. Miss then was born
in Ann Arbor shortly before her
parents departed for China. She
was born in the University Hospi-
tal and was named after the city
of Ann Arbor.
The Chens went back to Shang-
hai, where Chen taught economics
and Mrs. Chen taught biology.
Life was very peaceful for them
until the time of the Japanese
Ann Chen returned to this coun-
try in order to complete her last
year of high school in Iowa. She
then went to Grinnell College,
Grinnell, Iowa, for the first two
years of her college education.
This fall she transferred to the
University, where she is taking
pre-medical courses.
May Return to China
When she completes her educa-
tion here she may return to China,
depending upon the world situa-
Miss Chen says. that faith keeps
her family going, with a constant
optimistic view on life.
Chen is still somewhere in Chi-
na, but no one has heard from
him in about six months. Yet they
all have faith that someday peace
will come to the world and they
will be united again, always.
