Cardinal Tien Is Given
2 G. U. Scholarships
For Chinese Youth
Thomas Cardinal Tien left Wash
ington last night with the promise
of two full-time scholarships from
Georgetown University to help ad
vance the cause of education in his
native China.
The newly created Chinese car
dinal paid a visit to the university
earlier yesterday afternoon because,
he said, he wanted to see the “mother
of Catholic colleges in the United
States” before his departure from the
city. He spent about 45 minutes
chatting with the Very Rev. Law
rence C. Gorman, S. J., president,
and other members of the faculty.
Earlier, in a press interview, Car
dinal Tien appealed to the United
States for food shipments to starv
ing China. He said the emaciated
children of China, “who wander par
entless from town to town, sweep
ing waves of scavengers,” leave less
in their wake than locusts would.
United States Help Called Vital.
“If it were not for the soldiers,
sailors and Marines who delivered
China to freedom,” the prelate said,
“there would be even worse suffer
ing.” He declared that famine had
placed the Chinese at the gravest
point in her history.
“China cannot live without help
from America,” Cardinal Tien said.
Speaking through an interpreter,
Cardinal Tien concluded: “And help
from America means food.”
During the first two minutes of his
conversation with President Gor
man, the cardinal expressed his deep
interest and desire in the advance
ment of college and elementary
education in China.
President Gorman evinced his de
sire to co-operate by offering the
prelate two scholarships for worthy
Chinese students to complete the
course in the college of arts and
Accompanied by Priests.
On his visit to Georgetown,
Cardinal Tien was accompanied by

Rev. John Vos., S. V. D., who has
spent the last 15 years in China.

• Maloof, who is traveling as the
cardinal’s biographer and secretary,

taught him to speak English.
One of the Georgetown students
who met the cardinal was youthful
Ramon Kan of Hong Kong, one of
three Chinese students now attend
ing the college. Mr. Kan was a
refugee from Hong Kong and was
flown over the “Hump” into India
in an American Army plane. He
wanted to go to the United States
and attend Georgetown University,
he said, and traveled a circuitous
route of 18,000 miles to get here.
