many of the qualities that made his'

Dr. Gulick was born of missionarv
purcnts in the Far East and reared
there with adopted Oriental children.
He wss educated in America and re-
turned to Japan as a missionarv about
thirty years ago and has made h's
home there since. He is an able man
speaks Japanese, and has written
books on the Japanese.
In 1913 be left Japan on a furlough
and has been in America since, at
work in promoting bis "new Oriental
policy." This policy, briefly stated,
contemplates "granting to Asiatics in
this land the same privileges which
we grant to citizens of the most fa
vored Nations," and "placing in tho
Federal Government, instead of in the
Slate, respmslhiliiy In all legal and
