Title

Article "Paau Talks At Philadelphia On Late Chinese President"

Description

This article recognizes John A. Paau, a University senior from Canton (Guangzhou), China, who is the president of the Chinese Club at the time. The article discusses a recent trip Paau took to Philadelphia to talk about Chinese politics. The meeting was under the auspices of the Workers' Party and the Young Workers' League of Philadelphia, both parties associated with socialism or communism. The article discusses how Paau acted as Chairman for a memorial service conducted in the Chinese community of Philadelphia, conducted by Kuo Min Tang (the Revolutionary-Nationalist Party of China). He was chosen for his fluency in English and Chinese. He promoted great Chinese leaders and how "the late President of Southern Chinese Republic, Sun Yat Sen, had improved the character of the Chinese people."
