Oriental Fiction, Fairy Tales
Fill Shelves in GerUngcr Hall
Few students are aware of the
fact that an extensive collection of
hooks on China and Japan was
presented to the University by Mrs.
Murray Warner in conjunction
with the museum of oriental art.
The library containing these books
is located in the northeast corner
of Gerlinger hall on the third floor.
Jt is open from 2 until 5 in the
afternoon on Monday until Friday
Included in the collection are fic
tion books dealing with the orient,
translations of old Chinese and
Japanese classics, volumes of Jap
anese prints and other forms of
art, books on travel, histories, and
oriental magazines. Not only the
artistic but the educational, eco
nomic, political, and financial
phases of the orient are dealt with.
Even fairy tales for children are to
be found in the collection.
Of special interest to the people
of today are tales of the forbidden
city of China, which had been
closed to the outer world for
centuries until a few years ago.
Princes-; Dor Ling, who spent two
years in the royal palace at Peking,
has written several books upon her
experiences in the court surround
ings, the intrigues and plots that
are never lacking in royal circles,
and the court rules and ceremonies.
The library takes about 27 peri
odicals such as “Asia,” "Far East
ern Review,” "Antiques,” and
"Contemporary .Japan.” Current
literature of the politics, art,
drama, and other fields of oriental
life are, accordingly, available to
Rare and valuable art books
have been brought to the library
from China and Japan by Mrs. Mur
ray Warner. These are kept in
locked cabinets, but are brought
out at the request of any student
who is interested in them.

Magic Is Beginning
Ceremonials and magic practices
of religion were the beginning of
art, music, drama, literature, and
all of our present culture.
Its development was intricately
tied up with religion and it has
never been separated from it. It
was later, Dr. Parsons said, that
we developed an aesthetic sense
for this culture itself.
As civilization advances gods
arise which are concerned with
; morals. Standards of right and
! wrong are set up with the great
| power of God as perfection .As long
j as these ideas or standards exist,
; the society grows and continues to
survive. All great civilizations have
fallen when they have outgrown
their religion, Dr. Parsons said.
Rationalized religion perhaps
j represents the very best maturity
! of the race while man’s mind de
