Study Asked

By DONNA HANSON
Chih Meng, arector of the China
Institute in America, located in
New York, thinks there should be
more women in the United States
legislature.
"In Formosa," he said, "there is
a law which makes it mandatory
that one out of every ten persons
j elected to the legislature should be
a woman. Women in the family
and community have, half voice,
why not in the legislature? he
asked sagely.
Meng, however, did not journey
to Ann Arbor to comment on
equality of woman, but rather to
attend a conference designed to
promote Asian culture among the
teaching professions. This type of
promotion coincides closely with
Meng's work in the Institute which
mainly offers- courses to teachers
of Chinese history and culture.
The Institute also administers
scholarships and fellowships and
aids in job placements for Chinese
visiting professionals and students
in this country.
"Since 1950 we have placed more
than 600 Chinese scholars in Am-
erican faculties," Meng noted,
"particularly escapees from Com-
munist China."
An important purpose of the Ann
Arbor conference which Meng at-
tended is to get. foundations and
institutions interested in giving
courses on Asian cultures. "The
plan is to offer courses on a broad
survey on Asian nations and then
branch out to specializations,"
Meng explained. "We mainly want
to inform people about this cul-
ture."
Meng said that the conference
will try and accomplish this by
first appointing a committee to
raise money and engage universi-
ties to give summer programs, and
then broaden out to giving regular
courses during the year.
While visiting the campus, Meng
"paid my respects" to University
President Harlan Hatcher.
"President Hatcher," he observ-
ed, "has a winning personality and
his observations on free China and
Formosa are very keen."

BOY MEETS BLIND DATE-Forlorne freshman gazes at his
"date" for the evening, "Caroline Tower," who appeared at the
rendezvous with bells on. The unfortunate gentleman was taken
in by the old gag whereby he was fixed up with Burton Tower as
his date for the evening. Comparable to the tradition of the
engine arch, this escapade has earned this man the title of a
genuine University of Michigan freshman, cum gullible.
