CHUATAUQUA GREETINGS A great Chinese story to hear, One of good meat and full of cheer— A world of Harmony brought near, Wafting us away from our fear.—T. H. America sat respectfully at the feet of China; the mind of America was fed and stimulated by the intellect of China; the heart of America was thrilled by the eloquence of China; the ideals of America were re-vivified by the idealism of China; the star of the world's hope was seen brilliantly shining through rifts in the clouds in the Far East, all this transpired as Dr. Tehyi Hsieh, of China, spoke before the Woman's Club of Exeter last Tuesday afternoon. It was an event of no ordinary significance. The sermon at the Baptist Church next Sunday morning at 10:45 will be an attempt to interpret this event under the title A Prophet from the Far East. — DAILY NEWS LETTER, Exeter, N. H. WOMAN'S CLUB. The programme committee of the club may well be congratulated on the programme which they were able to present at the meeting on Tuesday afternoon; seldom, if ever, has the club listened to a more brilliant and forceful speaker than Dr. Tehyi Hsieh, of Brookline, a native Chinese and graduate of Cambridge University, who spoke on China wrestling with the New Spirit. For over an hour he held his audience, which overflowed into anterooms and corridors, entranced with his wonderful command of the English language and his wit and power of mimicry, at the same time presenting a vivid picture of conditions in China and her relation to other nations, particularly the United States. At the close of his address he made a strong appeal for the advancement of medical education, emphasizing it with the statement that throughout the Republic there is only an average of one physician to each four hundred thousand people, and one school-teacher to each one hundred thousand.— DAILY NEWS LETTER, Exeter, N. H. HSIEH ADDRESSES TWO MEETINGS CROWDED TO OVERFLOWING. ROTARY AND CONGREGATIONAL Dr. Hsieh was an impressive speaker…. He skillfully related a number of anecdotes to illustrate his points. A distinguished son of China and most remarkable man.— ELGIN DAILY, Elgin. Ill. REDPATH-VAWTER CHAUTAUQUAS 1923 Address DR. THEHYI HSIEH 247 State St., Boston Figure DR. TEYHI HSIEH Manderin of Fourth Rank, Blue Button—Old Regime PARLIN SCHOOL HONORED. Dr. Tehyi Hsieh, China's foremost statesman, but America's foremost friend, endeared himself to the youngest of his American audiences when he appeared before the Parlin school, Tuesday forenoon, under the auspices of Room 2, Miss Cohen's class. A born lecturer, a born teacher, he held youth spellbound in the instruction he offered and in the amusement he furnished. With a generous application of the richest and finest wit, he pointed out the humorous ambiguities of the English language as contrasted with the serious simplicity of Chinese, a language of pictures. But behind it all were notable facts. China, with due regard to the United States, boasts today of a new up-to-date Republic, a new rainbow flag, a new alphabet of thirty-nine letters only, a new people—four hundred and eighty million souls, all of whom are not laundrymen nor cooks, nor consumers of rice or what not. They are a human race trained and being trained in all walks of life, entering upon a new era of advancing civilization. No text book could have impressed the student more favorably nor effectively. Youth needs the oral demonstration and from the youth of the Parlin school is echoed and re-echoed, May the Lord preserve (not can, a la speaker) Dr. Tehyi Hsieh. — EVERETT HERALD. Roosevelt of China makes most enviable name for himself throughout America in his mission making friends for China. Hsieh has been widely heralded as a better English speaker than most Americans who have penchant for addresses. His English diction is perfect, but he does not hesitate when the necessity arises to use slang, the better to illustrate his point.— BOSTON HERALD. Noted Chinese an Impressive Speaker at City Club Auditorium. Eulogised by John C. Ferguson, advisor to Chinese Government, who said upon such men as Hsieh are reflected all the enormous possibilities of awakening China…. Hsieh in his illuminating address shows inherent genius of an unusually clever Chinese story-teller.— BOSTON TRAVELER. So interesting and eloquent was Dr. Hsieh's address at Civic Building, Framingham, held under the auspices of the Forum last night, that nearly two hours had slipped away before the audience allowed him his time-limit for last minute train to matter. His address replete with many happy epigrams and noble sentiments, was one of high principle and not of any animosity. He shows, with his constructive policy how he easily ranks among the ablest and fair-minded in the untiring work for peace and international understanding. — FRAMINGHAM NEWS, Framingham, PREDICTS CHINA TO USE UNITED STATES POLICIES. Awakening to bring two Nations together says Dr. Hsieh. Dr. Hsieh, whose talk at the Institute was the fourth in the city … charmed his audience with his attractive personality, his acquaintance with America and American customs, habits, accomplishments and aims, and his direct, forceful and clever way of presenting his message to his listeners.— THE UNION, Manchester, N. H. Dr. Tehyi Hsieh, economic and industrial leader of China, the Teddy Roosevelt of the Orient, brought East and West together last evening at the Arts and Science Institute, and in one impassioned phrase voiced the theme of his address, When China is thoroughly awake she will co-operate with America to save the World. HAS PLENTY OF PEP. Dr. Hsieh's subject was Present-Day China, and he was the very embodiment of his theme. Small in stature, alert, quick of wit and keenly intelligent, he exhibits so much American pep that he talked rapidly for more than two hours, and his audience was hungry for more …. A distinct and most agreeable mental picture of the New China was left with the audience.— THE MIRROR, Manchester, N. H. DR. T. HSIEH AND SECRETARY WEEKS GUESTS. AUTOMOBILE CLUB OF SPRINGFIELD ENTERTAINS DISTINGUISHED MEN AT CHINRSL NIGHT — DR. TEHYI HSIEH AMUSES, INSTRUCTS AND ENTERTAINS — SEC. WEEKS SPEAKS BRIEFLY. Longmeadow's new Community House was reborn last night with a thundering rebirth of New China…. Chinese Night was a decided success…. The slight figure of the Chinese statesman fairly shook with the force of the words. It was easy to believe that the determination he spoke was the same determination with which he held the high international principles and rights. Sec. Weeks paid a brief and striking tribute to the Teddy of China, who makes friends for China easily, and shook hands with China as per little statesman and had to leave for the Republican meeting at the Auditorium. Before he could reach the door, however, the little but vigorous Chinese statesman's short, thin arms were up with a vim, three cheers for your Secretary of War, he cried, and his own shrill Oriental voice, pitched high above the others, led the three thundering hip-hip-hoorays. — SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN. PATRIOTIC MEETING, WARREN AND PRESSCOTT CHAPTER—DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION Dr. Tehyi Hsieh of Peking, China, gave an impressive address choosing as his subject: East and West, Once Back to Back, Now Face to Face. He told first of the great difficulties encountered by Chinese students in acquiring the English language and gave some very amusing anecdotes in illustration. He recalled that America was the first nation to offer educational advantages to the Chinese, which example has now been followed by other nations. Dr. Hsieh outlined briefly the history of China, its revolution in the Boxer uprising and the overthrow of the Manchus and establishment of a republic. With great enthusiasm the speaker told how the port had been opened to the world, of how two hundred Buddhist Temples had been turned into schools; also of the radical change in the intellect of the people, which had led to the changes in the alphabet and establishing a new banking system. Dr. Hsieh closed by saying the liberation of China had come through the outstretched hand and fellowship of America. It resulted from the great Washington naval conference which meant the birth of a solemn compact between nations recognizing the brotherhood of man. Dr. Hsieh's words were followed with deep interest and there was much applause from those privileged to hear him .… A silken flag of stars and stripes was presented to Dr. Hsieh in token of his patriotic work in America, which he promises to entwine with Rainbow flag of China.— BOSTON TRANSCRIPT. DR. HSIEH TELLS FALES CLUB OF AROUSED CHINA. WALTHAM, MASS. Dr. Hsieh, who has acquired the popular sobriquet of The Theodore Roosevelt of China, needs no introduction to a Waltham audience. He has spoken in this city on previous occasions and has come to be regarded as one of the most enthusiastic, dynamic and inspiring exponents of awakened China. — WALTHAM EVENING NEWS. TEDDY ROOSEVELT OF CHINA MAKES EARNEST APPEAL. Before the biggest audience which has as yet gathered at a Free Church Forum, Dr. Teyhi Hsieh, with his ready wit, his wonderful appreciation of the peculiarities of an American audience and his remarkable knowledge of existing situations both in China and in the United States, made an appeal for the co-operation of the United States in the reconstruction of China, last Sunday evening. He discussed the possibilities for good which might come from the four hundred and eighty million souls who were just awakening from centuries of slumber in China and who were starting in a new era, combining the best of the West with the best of the East. He outlined the future of China as it might come to be if linked up with America in a struggle to perpetuate the peace of the world, nations on opposite sides of the globe, directing but not controlling the economic and civil life of their hemispheres with a common and united purpose in mind. He was tremendously earnest in his appeal, at times dramatic, never commonplace. THE ANDOVER TOWNSMAN, Andover, Mass. Dr. Hsieh, one of China's most scholarly and eloquent representatives, speaks excellent English, is forceful and convincing. At Poor Richard Club his address brought the audience of about a thousand people to its feet, cheering. — BOSTON CITY CLUB, ( Auditorium ). Dr. Hsieh, (often called the Roosevelt of China ), is in this country to study industrial relations…. He speaks English fluently, has travelled extensively and is an example of the modern and best young men of China, that country of 480,000,000 people just aroused to the possibilities of their own land. ALGONQUIN CLUB. Dr. Hsieh has made a life-long study of internal conditions in China and of China's relations to the nations of the West. He has executed many important diplomatic missions for his country. The Harvard Club feels honored in extending its hospitality to so eminent a guest. — HARVARD CLUB BULLETIN.
