The Management Takes Pleasure in Presenting THE COMING INTERPRETER OF OUR FAR EASTERN RELATIONS NO-YONG PARK Dr. No-Yong Park Harvard Scholar, Author, Lecturer on Oriental Questions, and a Prize-Winning Student in International Relations. REDPATH BUREAU 1316 Kimball Bldg., - Chicago DR. NO-YONG PARK AND HIS THEME Theodore Roosevelt, William H. Seward and other American statesmen predicted nearly half a century ago that the center of the future world lies in the Pacific. Certainly, their prophecies have already come true. The Pacific and the Far East have become the storm-center of world affairs. At the moment when the attention of the world is centered on the Far East, we take pleasure in presenting Dr. No-Yong Park. Dr. No-Yong Park (Pao) was born and raised in Manchuria, and has lived through many of the storms that have shaken the Orient. He has traveled and studied much in China, Japan, Europe, and America, and is most eminently qualified to interpret our Far Eastern relations without bias. Dr. Park is a graduate of the University of Minnesota and holds degrees of Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy from Harvard University. While in college he captured a number of prizes. He was one of the winners of the International Essay Contest open to all foreign students in American colleges, the Harris Political Science Prize given to the students of the leading universities in the Middle West, and the Pillsbury Oratorical Contest at the University of Minnesota, competing with the American students in their own language. At Harvard University he studied history and political science, majoring in international relations. He wrote his doctorate dissertation on China and the League of Nations. He has written among other works Making a New China and An Oriental View of American Civilization, and these have created a wide interest. His latest book, to be published shortly, is entitled Retreat of the West. It is a stirring theme, challenging and thought-provoking; indeed it is the great theme of the century, explaining the Western retreat from Eastern Asia. Dr. Park is an accomplished lecturer of international repute, and ranks in the class of the most chosen celebrities of our times. For more than ten years he has been lecturing at various universities and colleges and civic organizations. From Maine to Florida, and from New York to California, his message has been heralded as one of the most important that has ever come from the Orient. His gift of expression, breadth of vision, richness of experience, wealth of information, power of analysis and keen sense of Mark-Twain-like humor make him a very popular speaker in the great cities of America and Canada. LECTURE TOPICS: Retreat of the West, Our Far Eastern Relations, Outlook of the Far East, China's Struggle for Freedom, Japanese Imperialism and World Peace, Naval and Commercial Rivalry in the Pacific, Eastern View of Western Civilization. Each topic may be given as a series of three or more lectures. For example, Retreat of the West may be divided into Advance of the West, Conduct of the West, and Retreat of the West. Our Far Eastern Relations may be divided into China, Japan, and Manchukuo, or cultural, commercial and political.
