The seventy-two Chinese students who readied San Francisco a few domnlty by the American Congress was one of the wisest as well as one of the most magnanimous diplomatic moves over mado by any Government., says the Independent.

It is significant that most nre pursuing technical and scientific courses, the favorite being civil, me-1 chanical and electrical engineering, metallurgy, agriculture, finance, for estrynnd political science and govern ment. They nre strong in scholarship, cap turing scholastic honors in competi tion with American students. Within tlio past two years two have been elected in Phi Beta Kappa in Harvard and two in Yale. John Y. Lee, now an Instructor In physics in tho Univer sity of Chlcnfo, has the peculiar dis tinction of being both Phi Beta Kapp.v University of Pennsylvania.

His oration this year was on tho "Yale Spirit." V. K. Wellington Koo two years ago was on the debat ing team of Columbia which defeated Cornell. At different times the prize orators at tho universities of Virginia and Vanderbllt have been Chinese.
