From Canton Phil wrote: "The highlight of the conference came in the final session, with the celebrating of the one hundredth anniversary of the Canton Hospital (the first modern hospital in China, opened in November, 1835, by Dr.Peter Parker, Yale 1831 ) and the laying of the cornerstone of a new building for the Medical Department of Lingnan University."
In 1935, in the segment of China we knew, Chinese and Americans alike looked to a future of cooperative effort that would bring medicine,education and health to China.The Nationalist Government sanctioned such cooperation; it went further to encourage a far more difficult effort to harmonize the widely differing cultural patterns of East and West.Changsha's Mass Wedding that fall was a showcase example of that effort—yes,struggle.
"Following the lead of Changsha's mayor, various cities in China have instituted these weddings in the last few months; groups of brides and grooms all married off in one official gesture from the mayor.It is aimed at correcting the evils of the traditional marriage ceremony with its devastating expense and horseplay.
"It was a thrilling spectacle held, eugenically enough, in the new municipal athletic hall.Long before the hour, crowds electric with excitement began to jam the grounds.Only the families and those with special permit were allowed to enter the hall itself.Graciously, we had been granted a special permit, and the children and I saw it all from the inside.
