Figure The Most Important Addresses of the Year: Can America Keep Out of War? Our Foreign Policy—What Is It? Looking at Tomorrow's News Today Getting the Hard-to-Get News If Japan Wins—What Then? by DON BATE Author — Traveller — Newswriter — Commentator Hear This Recognized Authority on World Affairs Present a True Picture of the Conditions Which So Vitally Affect All Americans Exclusive direction of Gishler Associates Incorporated Hotel Utica Utica, N. Y. Chicago: Suite 332, Auditorium Hotel Why You Should Hear DON BATE TALK with the leaders — live with their followers — KNOW the Chinese and Japanese, their struggles and hopes and ambitions. Understand the fears and unrest of millions of Central Europeans. Don Bate sweeps you with him on a journey to the fountain heads of today's news. See, thru Bate's eyes, the pent up feelings, the antagonisms and patriotisms of one-half of the world's populations. Appreciate as never before the kaleidoscope of world happenings. Bate has penetrated to high places, usually inaccessible to the newsgatherer. Let him take you with him; give you the quotable quotes; show you the vivid pictures; supply the information you have searched to find, thrill you with his knowledge of the world and its peoples. The Qualifications of DON BATE DON BATE knows the world. Much of his life has been spent among the Chinese and Japanese, the Germans and the French, the Hawaiians and the Philippinos. During his Syracuse University days, he was managing editor of the Daily Orange, followed by several years as an active news writer on important Metropolitan dailies. Then he went to the Far East as representative of the American Publishers. This was followed by several years service as night cable editor for the United Press in Shanghai; then maritime editor of the China Press, foremost American daily in the Orient; later as foreign editor and special European representative. His roving duties in the Orient took him from Singapore to Vladistock and in Europe from London to Petrograd. Don Bate's sincere and magnetic personality enabled him to be more than interviewer. Cordiality was the key-note, rather than formality when he talked with such important figures as Madame Chiang Kai-shek, the Wellesley educated Christian wife of the Chinese Generalissimo, considered the real brains of the national government; Koki Hirota, the former Japanese Foreign Minister; G. Harada, Japanese Counsul in Shanghai; Yui-Ming of the Chinese Foreign Office; His Excellency C. T. Wang, Chinese Ambassador to the United States; General Beaumont in command of the American Marines in China; Admiral Yarnell, in charge of the United States Asiatic Fleet and many other leaders in diplomatic, military, naval, commercial and financial circles. In order to ferret out related interests and complications, Bate has also interviewed many of the foremost European statesmen whose names mean headlines to the world. The result is knowledge of true facts. As a speaker, Bate has received the highest praise. A large fund of dramatic incidents, a ready wit, and a pleasing, forceful style make him an immediate favorite with audiences of every type. BATE TELLS YOU: Of things as they are! Uncolored by Propaganda Unbiased by Prejudices Unfettered by Censorships International Lectures by Don Bate CAN AMERICA KEEP OUT OF WAR? IN THE FAR EAST? IN EUROPE? A swiftly-moving commentary based on the speaker's most intimate personal knowledge, observations and connections. Up-to-the-minute opinions, news comments and experiences. OUR FOREIGN POLICY — WHAT IS IT? Don Bate is eminently qualified to discuss this comprehensive subject. Years of newspaper work, countless interviews and intimate relations with celebrities, have contributed to his store of knowledge, common sense and vision. LOOKING AT TOMORROW'S NEWS TODAY One of the most popular of Mr. Bate's addresses, delivered as only an experienced newspaper man and a trained speaker is capable of presenting. GETTING THE HARD-TO-GET NEWS Mr. Bate's varied adventures for many years as a newspaper correspondent and editor, together with his around the world tour of 1938, provide a timely background for this unusual address. IF JAPAN WINS, WHAT THEN? Mr. Bate thrills his audiences, not with generalities but specifically and in detail. The answer to the above question provides a lecture which is factual, interesting and dynamic.

Des Moines Public Schools, Des Moines, Iowa Civitan Club, Salt Lake City, Utah Enthusiastic Comments from Bate Audiences Union League Club of the City of New York You did not let us down! My guess is that you would not let any audience of live-blooded men down. You covered your subject the way newspaper men think but seldom write. May I, as Chairman of the committee, express my very great appreciation. C. K. WOODBRIDGE, March 4, 1938. What Individual Union League Members Said Without doubt the most interesting speaker we have had in eleven years. I have heard many speakers for over forty years, but Don Bate is the best talker I have ever heard on any subject! Don Bate's talk covered the subject more adequately than any I have ever heard on a similar subject anywhere. Rotary Club of New York On behalf of the Rotary Club of New York may I thank you most sincerely for addressing our members at a luncheon last Thursday. We were indeed interested in your talk on 'Can America Keep Peace in the Pacific?' and we had many expressions of interest and appreciation on the part of our members and guests. We hope when you return from your next trip abroad you will again do us the honor of addressing our members. With kindest regards, and assurances of our appreciation, I am, EDWIN H. RUSHMORE, Sec'y, May 31, 1938. Advertising Club of New York Congratulations on doing the impossible, namely, holding a group of busy men from 1:15 to 3:00 P. M. The Bohemians of the Advertising Club have asked me to send you a Bohemian Token with the best wishes for continued good luck and success from the five hundred Bohemians who sponsor the Club's feature programs. HUGH GAFFNEY, December 7, 1937. Rochester Chamber of Commerce On behalf of the Commerce Club of the Chamber of Commerce, I want to express to you my sincere thanks for your excellent talk. I have heard nothing but the finest comments. It was illuminating and delightful; one of the outstanding talks we have had since the Club was organized. I have had a number of requests for a return engagement. DAVID G. HARVARD, Ass't Sec'y, January 10, 1938. Des Moines Public Schools Mr. Bate met with universal approbation. He knows his stuff and is one of the most engaging speakers we have ever had and we have had the best men in the nation at our Public Forums. Mr. Bate deals with his subject objectively and while stating candidly his own opinion, does justice to contrary opinion in a degree that satisfied all of his auditors. At the close of our week's Forum, Saturday noon, Don Bate was voted the best leader and speaker since the beginning of our Forums in 1933. E. W. BALDUF, Director of Adult Education, December 6, 1937. Kiwanis Club of Scranton, Pa. It was certainly a pleasure to have you with us and hear your splendid address. Our group is a rather blase one and hears many fine talks. It is only on rare occasions that the membership spontaneously rises to applaud a speaker as they did you. There is no clearer indication of how well your address was received. Thanks for your splendid piece of work. We are looking forward to having you with us in the fall. RUSSELL H. DEAN, Sec'y, May 20, 1938. Monroe Avenue Methodist Church, Rochester, N. Y. Those of us who were responsible for your three speeches here Sunday cannot but feel how weak and inadequate a letter of appreciation is certain to be. In your own unique and dynamic fashion, you gave Rochester a new picture of the Far Eastern situation and changed the opinions of a lot of Rochester people. A grand job and thanks mightily! ROBERT KAZMAYER, Pastor, March 10, 1938. St. Anthony Club, New York The many enthusiastic expressions of pleasure which continue to come to me regarding your recent address to our members impel me to tell you again what an altogether delightful evening you provided for those of us who were fortunate enough to be present. FRANCIS J. DANFORTH, President, March 9, 1938. First Congregational Church, Memphis, Tenn Your message should be heard all over the country. It was the first time during my pastorate that the pulpit has been given over to a visitor. There were some misgivings, but after your address, the 'doubters' all thanked me, and when you come this way again, my pulpit is open to you. MARSHALL WINGFIELD, Pastor, April 1, 1938. Rotary Club of Syracuse It was a great pleasure to have you here today. You certainly thrilled our members—well over 200 of them—with an illuminative and informative address. The subject, 'If Japan Wins, What Then?' is timely and you know your onions! Vast audiences ought to have the privilege of hearing you. In the name of the Club, I thank you and hope the future will bring an opportunity for us to hear you again. More power to you! FRANK W. WEEDON, Secretary, February 25, 1938. Rotary Club of Scranton, Pa. May I thank you again for the fine talk you delivered to the Scranton Rotary Club. You gave us everything we wanted to know about the Far Eastern situation and you did it in a most interesting manner. Thank you again for your courtesy in coming to us. BYRON S. HOLLINSHEAD, Chairman Program Committee, May 12, 1938. Syracuse University Alumni Association of Elmira, N. Y. Ever since Don Bate talked before our Association, and the Rotary Club—I have been hearing his praises sung. Every once in a while someone tells me that he gave the best talk they had heard in years. His language and expression were colorful, interesting and put in such a way that the 125 men in the room were in stitches most of the time. It was great! —and we want him again. ROBERT P. MCDOWELL, April 26, 1938. Printed in U.S.A.
