NO YONG PARK Oriental Mark Twain figure NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY EVANSTON, ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY OE MINNESOTA MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. NO YONG PARK , a famous Oriental lecturer and humorist, known as Oriental Mark Twain, formerly an editor of a Korean Liberal paper, was one of the most brilliant students of political science, not only in the East but also in the West. WAS A STUDENT OF POLITICAL SCIENCE No Yong Park, winner of the Harris Political Science Essay Contest, open to students of all universities and colleges of Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, and Minnesota.— Chicago Tribune. My dear No Yong Park: Please accept my most hearty congratulations for your success in the contest. You are certainly deserving of a lot of credit, since you have been remaining in a land not your own and in a language foreign to you. — N. Dwight Harris, Ph. D., Professor of Diplomacy and International Law, Northwestern University. FAR EAST EDITOR No Yong Park edited a Korean Liberal paper in Seoul, Korea, and Shanghai, China.

SUBJECTS Japanese Immigration and the Pacific Peace The World Policy of Japan Asia in Transition GIFTED SPEAKER No Yong Park is a gifted speaker and natural humorist.— Calgary Daily Herald, Canada. No Yong Park is one of a very few among the Orientals who can speak English with natural fluency as a gifted native speaker and thinker.— Indianapolis News.

In a speech intermingled with pathos, humor and lofty sentiment, he held the audience in rapt attention for an hour and a half.— South Bend Tribune. The Korean lecturer stirred a capacity audience last night in one of the most unique addresses ever delivered in the city. The address was replete with amazing sense of humor, but at times his speech reflected the pathos of a people seeking to rise to higher levels. Should he ever visit Kankakee again he will find a warm welcome awaiting him.— Kankakee Daily Republican, Ill. The audience was both instructed and entertained. He gave them a perspective of the Eastern problems. His address was replete with pleasant humor which made the evening seem quite short. — Rogers Park Sunday Evening Club, Inc., Chicago.
