NEw CoLLEGE SARASOTA, FLORIDA 33578 813 / 355-7131 SPECIAL TO THE HERALD TRIBUNE FOR USE: THURSDAY, MAY 9, 1968 CHINA STUDIES SEMINAR TOPIC 1 184 -5/7/68 Ref.: Furman c. Arthur One of the frequently expressed beliefs at New College is that there is a virtually unmined vein of rich human talent in the area and a recent example confirms this. Because of the size of the student body, which limits the size of the faculty, it is natural that not every student interest finds a challenge in the ctrriculum. One of these interests has been 1n Asian studies and in the past well-known former diplomat Clayton Lane has led seminars in this area. In recent months Mrs. Ralph Shrader has been working with three firstyear students in the area of China studies. Mrs. Shrader and her husband, the late Rev. Ralph Shrader, taught in China at Foochow College for seven years beginning in 1926 after completing their studies at Chicago Theological Seminary. This period was a crucial one for China as it marked the takeover by Chiang Kai-shek. After their return to the United States, the Shraders continued their interest 1n Asia and the Rev. Mr. Shrader was instrumental in developing a series of international relations seminars for lay people in the Congregational Church, later carried on under the United Church of Christ. more


NEW COLLEGE Page 2 The Shraders began wintering in the area in 1960 and have been interested in the development of the college. President John Elmendorf learned of Mrs Shrader's background in China studies and a trial series of seminars was set up this term. Three first-year students are currently meeting ce ea h week with Shrader, workin. in a tutorial situation receiving guidance in their own Mrs Shrader has said that she has been appalled by the general public lack of knowledge or interest in China. She said in her seminars she hopes to develop clues to the current situation and to the revolt that let to it by searchinc past periods. Students receive no credit for the course, but sign up and attend voluntarily because o thir interests. * BRAZILIAl{S MAY VISIT HERE Fifty Brazilian students, ages 14 to 25, are being brought to the United States in July to visit businesses, hospitals, and other institutions.
