Figure Mid 1940's 230 WHAT NEXT IN THE INTERNATIONAL OUTLOOK? Dean E. Smith Can Tell You DEAN E. SMITH A Former Far Eastern Executive of the Standard Oil Company, who Saw the Japanese Conquer Singapore and Burma … Has Had 27 Years Experience in Europe and Asia as an Unofficial Observer of the Rise of Communism in World Affairs … Has a Thrilling Message for Everyone who Loves America… THE REDPATH BUREAU KIMBALL BUILDING Chicago 4, Ill. Phone: Harrison 7-8723 24 W. 45th St., Suite 5-N New York 19, N. Y. Phone: MUrray Hill 7-7073 DEAN E. SMITH DEAN E. SMITH, for a number of years a Far Eastern executive of the Standard Oil Company, lived through the Japanese invasion of Singapore and Burma, and, therefore, knows intimately China, Japan, India and the outlying countries of the Far East. Mr. Smith received his education at Lawrence College, the University of Wisconsin and Harvard University. During the battle of Burma, Dean E. Smith was with General Stillwell, Dr. Gordon Seagrave (of Burma Surgeon fame) and General Chennault with his Flying Tigers. Years ago Mr. Smith traveled on horseback over the route which finally became the Burma Road. He later took part in its construction and operation. A keen observer of world events, Mr. Smith tells how China and India fit into the Far Eastern picture and their relation to ourselves. He also has dealt with the Russians and knows the objectivity and methods of Russia's present rulers. He was one of the first to warn against the dangers of concessions to that country. No one is better qualified to speak on the area where Russia and the United States now stands face to face in the tremendous upheaval that is taking place in Asia and Europe at the present time. In many radio broadcasts over MUTUAL and ABC networks Dean E. Smith has described the various countries in which he has lived and traveled. Mr. Smith has become widely known for his accurate analysis of the Far Eastern situation. He opens the door to a better understanding of current events and gives facts that are of the utmost importance to the security and existence of our nation. His addresses are among the most powerful on the American platform, packed with facts and clear understanding, and always intensely interesting. HIS STRAIGHT-FROM-THE-SHOULDER LECTURES WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE FAR EAST? America's destiny is at stake. Asia is now the back door to America. THE MENACE OF COMMUNISM Mankind's greatest enemy. What it is and how it works. Described as one of the top-flight talks on the American platform. THE REAL CHINA — OUR FRIEND IN ASIA Betrayed to Communists. What actually happened by one who saw it all—an amazing story. China is a mirror in which we can observe the course of our own destiny. Why Dean E. Smith Commands Repeat Engagements Memphis, Tenn., Goodwyn Institute, J. B. George, Director Mr. Smith knows his subject matter, much of which is from first hand knowledge of communist activities in many countries in which he has visited and lived. He held his audience as few speakers can. If Mr. Smith could get before every community in the U. S. and deliver the message he gave at Goodwyn Institute, I believe our people would wake up to the fact that we must act now in ridding ourselves of this menace. Moline, Ill., After Dinner Club, Earl Tarbox, Chairman Has a thrilling message for everyone who loves America. An interesting personality. Mitchell, S. D., Chamber of Commerce, R. B. Willard, Secretary We need more men of Mr. Smith's calibre who know the facts and are not afraid to tell them. (N. B.—The talk given here was later published in the Congressional Record). Milwaukee, Wis., Rotary News It has been many a moon since we have seen any speaker given such a spontaneous ovation by Rotary of Milwaukee. Here was an American business man who SAW and LIVED the Far East for more than a quarter of a century. Chicago, Ill., American Friends of China, Frances Wheedon, President Excellent. Everyone was very much impressed with his sincerity, the exactness of his information, and his real interest in China and her future. Sioux Falls, S. D., Knife and Fork Club, E. S. Miller Well received. A highly informative address. Iowa City, Iowa, Talk of the Hour Club, L. L. Dunnington, Chairman Excellent. Straight-from-the-shoulder. He was diplomatic, however, not to offend those who are thin-skinned. He did a beautiful job. We do not expect anything finer. Royal Oak, Mich., Teachers Institute, L. G. Goodrich He gave us important information and told it in such a way that it could be easily understood. Marquette, Mich., State Teachers College, Dr. R. Thomas Excellent. He exceeded our expectations. Very capable speaker. He should be heard by Americans everywhere. Peoria, Ill., Knife and Fork Club, Fred C. Landis He had an interesting story to tell and he told it well. I would certainly recommend him to any group. Rockford, Ill., Northern Illinois Teachers Institute, Paul S. Conklin Most satisfactory. He has a message the whole United States could well hear at this time. Council Bluffs, Iowa, S. W. Iowa Teachers Institute, G. W. Kirn He is courageous and describes situations without fear or favor. Many thought this year's program was the best ever presented, and Dean Smith deserves a large share in that praise.
