SYUD HOSSAIN, Professor of Oriental Civilization, and Special Lecturer on World Affairs at University of Southern California, has recently returned from a year's world tour which embraced Europe, the Near East, India and the Far East, during which he studied the international situation at first hand. Dr. Hossain made special observation of the changes in the Near East consequent upon Italy's annexation of Ethiopia. He visited Egypt, Palestine and Syria, meeting ministers and other notables. In Palestine he had an interview with the Grand Mufti and other Arab leaders. In Tel Aviv the Mayor gave a reception for him at which he met the important Jewish leaders.

In Calcutta and in Rangoon, the Prime Ministers, respectively, of Bengal and Burmah presided at Dr. Hossain's public lectures. Dr. Hossain also made a special study of the war situation in the Far East. He went into the war zone in China, seeing the bombing of Canton and the wreckage of Shanghai. He also visited the great British Naval base at Singapore, which must play a fateful part in shaping future history in the Orient. And then on to Japan, where he observed the intensely fascinating psychology and drama of a great nation being made a pawn of destiny.
