MALAYSIA-The PHILIPPINES The HOMELAND JAPAN Figure Figure Illustrated Lectures by DR.FAY-COOPER COLE REDPATH Illustrated Lectures by Doctor Fay-Cooper Cole MALAYSIA Doctor Cole's Explorations in Malaysia DOCTOR COLE is at present on an investigative tour of Malaysia, and the title of his Malaysian lecture will not be known until his return to this country. However, it is sufficient to state that he will discuss his experiences and the results of his investigations and discoveries in his usually comprehensive and interesting manner. His investigations are being made among the oldest of the aboriginal tribes of Malaysia, and are certain to afford much enlightening information. This lecture will be illustrated either with colored slides or by moving pictures, as preferred. THE PHILIPPINES Doctor Cole is prepared to deliver four lectures on the Philippines that are popular, unique and distinctive: I. THE PHILIPPINES, BEFORE AND AFTER AMERICAN OCCUPATION. A lecture full of information for those who wish to know actual conditions in our Oriental possessions. II. WILD TRIBES OF THE PHILIPPINES. An interesting talk concerning the most inaccessible portions of the Archipelago, portraying intimate views of the home, social and religious life of the pagan tribes. III. THE PYGMIES. An interesting lecture dealing with the weird ceremonies and nomadic life of this primitive race. IV. AHEAD OF CIVILIZATION. This highly illuminative lecture deals with the experiences of an anthropologist among the pagan tribes; incidents of travel through the jungle, on mountain trail and native craft, together with vivid descriptions of these primitive people, many of whom are unaccustomed to white men. Their homes, religious ceremonies and dances portray the life of a simple folk that will soon be overwhelmed by civilization. During his Philippine travels Doctor Cole has made more than four thousand pictures. He also has had access to the government files of eight thousand negatives. He has had five hundred lantern slides made, all colored true to nature by the best artists; no finer set of slides is in existence. Courses of Lectures on the History and Ethnology of the Philippines, especially adapted for teachers' institutes and colleges. DOCTOR COLE AND HIS WORK DR. FAY-COOPER COLE, explorer, writer, lecturer, and Assistant Curator in the department of Anthropology at Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago, is famed for his exploring expeditions into little-known parts of the world in search of first-hand information concerning these remote regions and their peoples. Doctor Cole is one of the foremost anthropologists of the day. At present he is making an extended trip in the interests of the Field Museum through the interior of Sumatra, Borneo, Java and other of the scarcely-known parts of Malaysia, from which he will return to America early in 1924. His close study and observation of the uncivilized tribes of these regions—among the most primitive of present-day races—will form a nucleus by which Doctor Cole expects to arrive at many definite conclusions regarding the mentality and sociological conditions of prehistoric man. The results of his latest expedition are being eagerly awaited. The Redpath Bureau, under whose auspices he has filled a number of lecture engagements, has been fortunate in securing a limited amount of his time following his return to the United States, and is proud to offer him to Lyceum committees with its unqualified endorsement. Doctor Cole has spent a number of years in the interior of the Philippines, and is a recognized authority on subjects pertaining to these islands. In conjunction with his father, the late Dr. George LaMont Cole, a leading authority on American Indian life, he spent five years among the ruined cities of the Cliff Dwellers, and has brought the combined results of their studies to audiences in all parts of America. He is also well acquainted with Japan. JAPAN Glimpses of Japan A timely lecture on a subject of vital interest to Americans. Doctor Cole has made four trips to the Land of Cherry Blossoms, where he has viewed at close range the social and economic life of the persevering little people who have made of their rugged islands a land of exquisite beauty. With the aid of wonderfully colored views the audience visits the homes of Japan, sees the people at work in shops and fields, at play and at devotion. If desired, Doctor Cole will use moving pictures to illustrate his talk. AMERICA The Homeland No subject is of greater import than the story of the homeland, and no land has a more thrilling past than America. In three illustrated lectures of absorbing interest Doctor Cole portrays the beginning of civilization in America: I. THE ANCIENT CLIFF DWELLERS. The story of the life, struggles and accomplishments of prehistoric man in America, showing by aid of colored slides the cavate lodges, cliff palaces, great communal cities, tools, weapons, pottery and weaving; and, finally, the skeletons and mummies of those early inhabitants of our country. II. THE MODERN CLIFF DWELLERS—THE PUEBLO INDIANS. Showing the industries, home life, festivals and religious rites of a strange people. The Snake Dance is most effectively portrayed. Moving pictures will be shown, if desired. III. THE GREAT AMERICAN DESERT, OR THE CHARM OF THE DESERT. A new lecture picturing the Great American Desert, the peculiar flora and fauna of the semi-arid Southwest; the desert sands, mountains, gorges, canyons and other formations of this land of lost rivers. The wonderful reclamation work being carried on in this section by the United States government is fully described. One hundred colored slides. Moving pictures, if desired. PRIMITIVE ART This is a unique, interesting lecture of special value at this time when aboriginal art is assuming a place of such importance in textile and other decorative designs. It is illustrated with one hundred beautiful slides which show the artistic ideas and accomplishments of peoples in various stages of development, and who are living under very different environments. Thus we go from the Pygmies to the primitive Malays, and from them to the highly influenced peoples of Malaysia. In America we have a similar range from the Indians of the Northwest Coast to those of California and, finally, to the ancient and modern inhabitants of the Southwest. The influence of environment and of historical contact on the artistic life of a people is clearly brought out.
