The vast majority of Chinese men
remember their mothers as cripples.
Many a girl wanders Into a mission
school who has not had her own feet
bound, but has never seen a woman
of her own class who could walk, and,
therefore, she walks In a most ungain

The Chinese Medical Association
an Association composed only of Chi
nese physicians mostly graduates from
American and English Institutions
have asked the entire educated commu
nity of the country to co-operate in
better health for the children of Chi
na. All the Mission Boards operating
In China felt that one of the greatest I
contributions the Young Women's
Christian Association could offer to
the health of China would be to .es- ?
tablish a normal school for the train
ing of physical directors.
Accordingly, in Shanghai, which Is j
the greatest port in China, the nation
al committee established such a school J
In 1914. The school has won favor |
with all educationists, both missionary
and government. There have already
been nine graduates from this school, i :
Miss Ying Mei Chun, a graduate of ?
the Wellesley School of Physical Edu- j
cation, has been dean of the school, j
Graduates of the school are scattered ;
from Canton to Peking, teaching with .
conspicuous success in twelve mission
and government schools.
