Chiang Kai-shek
Is Praised by
Dr. Shepherd
Generalissimo Called
China's Strong Man
"You can't talk to him for a mo-
ment without knowing that he is
master of the situation and master
of you," said Dr. George W. Shepherd
in speaking of Chiang Kai-shek yes-
terday at the first panel discussion
of the Chinese Conference.
Dr. Shepherd, missionary in China
and personal advisor to the general-
issimo, characterized him as the
strong man needed to rule a recent-
ly united people. "Chiang's secret of
success," explained Dr. Shepherd, "is
the fact that he stood for what was
in the hearts of the youth of China."
Opposes Chiang's Critics
To the critics of Chlang, Dr. Shep-
herd pointed out that without him
there would be no national govern-
ment in China, and, in fact, no or-
ganized resistance to Japan in Asia
"The revolution under Sun Yat
Sen was not a people's revolution,"
Shepherd declared, "but was planned
by intellectuals and engineered by
secret societies." Even today only
one percent of the Chinese belong to
the People's party, he said. "We don't
think of the present administration
in China as being permanent any
more than we think of the present
administration in this country as
permanent," Shepherd remarked.
Chiang Wants Republic
The two most important things to
remember about Chiang Kai-Shek,
according to Dr. Shepherd, are that
his primary interest is in the com-
mon people and that he is determined
to build a modern republic in China.
Dr. Shepherd was preceded by Dr.
Esson M. Gale, director of the Inter-
national Center and chairman of the
panel, who discussed the government
of China.
Unification Discussed
Following Dr. Shepherd's talk was
a discussion of the unification of
China by Shih-Chia Chu of the Li-
brary of Congress, who pointed out
the difficulties involved. He men-
tioned the size of the country, the
numerous dialects, poor transporta-
tion facilities, intervention of foreign
powers, and conflicts with the Com-
munists, as obstacles which had to be
Celia Chao and Tsang Chi-Mou,
graduate students at 'the University,
and Dr. P. T. Sah, president of the
National University of Amoy, as well
as Dr. Shepherd and Mr. Shih-Chia
Chu were members of the group
which answered questions put to
them by people in the audience at
the close of the session.

Modern INative Palestine Garb

By studying the present native
dress in Palestine, which closely re-
sembles the garb of Biblical times,
we have been able to design the cos-
tumes for the 'Journey to Jerusa-
lem,' the present offering of the
Repertory Players," Miss Lucy Bar-
ton, costumiere for the Players, said
Internationally known for her work
in costume designing, Miss Barton
is the head of the dramatic arts de-
partment at the University of Ai-
zona. This is her third season with
the Repertory Players.
Was Trained at Four Colleges
She received her BA in drama at
Carnegie Institute of Technology and
her MA in history of criticism of Fine
Arts from New York University. She
also attended the Drama School of
Yale and did graduate work at Ox-
In 1934, Miss Barton was costu-
miere for the Globe Shakespearean
Theatre at the Chicago Exposition.
"The stage was prolonged and we
were confronted with the problem
of making the Elizabethan costumes
look like real clothes," she said. "The
effect was finally achieved by having
the players wear their costumes
throughout the day," she added.
Also Directed Pageants
In addition to her work in costume
designing, Miss Barton has directed
several pageants, "In the pageant
of Niagara Falls, the emphasis was
placed on the texture and color of
the set, while the small details were
subordinated," she stated.
The author of several books, Miss
Barton has submitted articles to
many magazines including the Na-
tional Collegiate Players' Organ,
Speech Monographs and the Players'
MYDA Reports
