THE CHANGING CHINESE
Prof. Edward A. Ross, whose
usefulness was by no,means end
ed by his dramatic exit from Stan
ford faculty, years ago, recently
spent six months in China, travel
ing 10,000 miles," and his book on
"The Changing Chinese" is at
tracting wide attention.

under b'ad conditions the yellow
man can beat the white man, be

The great trouble with Chinese
society is the craving for off
spring, consequent big families
and overcrowding of the means
of subsistence. There are more

that wherever we are going, so
cially and economically, he is go

liberal government on western
models was near, and his words
were scarcely printed wheir
"bang" went the revolution!
