PAGE 6 v^7 i$J Southwest Chinese Journal MARCH 1985 From the Desk of. Dr. Joyce Fan My dear grandchildren. Tammi, Jackie and Tim, Oftentimes, different cultures value a different standard and taste for beauty. Such was the case in the old China. In ancient days the Chinese considered tiny "bound" feet as being dainty and beautiful. This was a medieval horror that sur- vived well into the 20th century. The feet of a little girl were bound tightly with cloth, with her toes bent under the sole, to prevent any growth. This was not only a very painful procedure, but a very destructive one. When the girl reached adult- hood, she had to be content with a pair of badly crippled feet, wearing shoes barely three inches long. Both my grandmothers had such feet. I used to be fascinated with their tiny shoes, some beauti- fully embroidered. Occasionally my grandmoth- ers would give me a spare pair for my dolls. Thus, the Chinese women were held in servi- tude to men. They were taught to observe ...

Thusspoke Edmond Gor in hisofficeat Associates in Financial Planning at 2100 West Loop South. Edmond acquired a degree in electrical engi- neering at the University of Texas to become associated with Fluor. Nine years later, the desire to enter the field of financial planning prompted him to devote 2V? additional years to acquire his certification in a new and expanding horizon of business opportuni...

PAGE 8 ^ r£) Southwest Chinese Journal MARCH 1985 HOW TO RAISE SUPERSTAR By Elsie Huang From a new study comes heartening news for parents, given the right conditions, almost any child can rise higher, live better, shine more brightly. Recently, noted educational researcher Ben- jamin Bloom and a team of research assistants at the University of Chicago completed a five-year study of some 120 superstars - the best and the brightest, the tops in theirfields. Surprisingly, the educational detectives found that such super- stars aren't simply born - they are brought up that way. Their talents may differ, but their childhood experiences tend to be remarkably similar If Bloom is right - and many leading educators believe he is - then potential talent is more com- mon than we think. Indeed, Bloom feels that the great majority of children, given the right condi- tions, can learn almost anything. "Human poten- tial," he insists, "is much greater than we can measure in I.Q or aptitude tests."...

ANTHONY GUNAWAN Cardiologist Anthony Gunawan spoke on the subject "What's New in Heart Disease" at the June Dove Leong Symposium at Golden Bo Res- taurant. Afterward, he was presented with a $1400 gold necklace, the door prize donated by Upstairs Jewelers in Sharpstown Center. To the surprise and delight of his wife Nani, the necklace was a perfect match to the gold bracelet she already possessed Gunawan is a unique name for persons of Chi- nese ancestry, which both Nani and Anthony Gunawan are. In Indonesia, where the Gunawans originate, 30% of the population is Chinese, and it is usual for all Chinese in that country to use the Indonesian surnames. Dr. Gunawan's parents spoke the Fukienese dialect - his father's given name was Jhung - and his mother - Tjhie. Today his mother still resides in Cilacap in Indonesia where Dr. Gunawan was born.

PAGE 12 \ ?7 r£j H Southwest (Chinese Journal MARCH 1985 U.S. Professor Launches "Western" University in China By Terry Cheng HONG KONG — A proposal for an experimental Western style university in Shumchun is supported by the top leadership in Peking. But the idea has met resistance from some Soviet-trained educational officials. Prof Chan Shu park, who used to be a university lecturer in the United States, said he first made his proposal to Mr Deng Xiaoping in 1982 when they met in Peking. And the top leader during an inspection of Shumchun last year asked the mayor, Mr Liang Xiang, to look into the matter. Prof Chan said he was then asked to go to Shumchun and then Peking to discuss his plan. Mr. Liang, according to Prof Chan, supported his plan fully. But in Peking, he was "grilled" by Education Ministry officials for three hours. In a lunch meeting at the Y's Men's Club last week, he talked and answered questions about his plan. Prof Chan is a son of Mr Chan Chai-tong, a high ra...

April 1985 rt} Southwest (hinew Journal PAGE 3 Summer Activities From the Principals Desk Elsie Huang Have fun with your children this summer-but don't let learning take a vacation! Here are 15 things you can do to keep their minds active and give them a good start in school next fall. 1. Read together. Research shows that the most important way parents can help their children become better readers is by encouraging them to read at home. Try to find a time when your whole family can read together. Or have your child read you a bedtime story. 2. Visit the library. Many libraries plan special summer activities. Kids need to learn that adults read for fun, too. so take—don't send them 3. Play word and reading games. Try looking for letters of the alphabet on signs as you drive. Or play "I Spy," trying to find a word that starts with "A," "B," and so on. "I spy an airplane. I spy a bridge...." For older children, games like Scrab- ble help build vocabulary. 4. Develop creative writing s...

April 1985 v?7 \il fl f -$il Southwest Chinese Journal PAGE 5 i REFLECTIONS By William Der Bing, Sr. One billion people, or one fourth of the entire world's population, are Chinese. If you add those outside of China who are in foreign countries, and those of Chinese parentage who were born outside of China, the total count soars astronomi- cally. For those outside of China, with theexcep- tion of those who emigrated, how many of these speak, read and write Chinese fluently? In fact, one professor at the University of Texas menti- oned to some of his American born Chinese stu- dents that, yes, their vocabulary is commendable; their reading ability is quite good; their writing, while not native, is at least passable. However, in speaking Chinese - Mandarin to be specific, why is it they speak it with a Texas accent? Orforthat matter, an Arkansas accent , a Mississippi accen- t.. it's almost like a California Chinese American speaking English. It somehow doesn't seem quite authentic. W...

April 1985 & rtj Southwest Chinese Journal PAGE 7 A Word of Caution About Herbal Weight- Loss Preparations Beverly J. Gor, M.S., R.D. Down through the centuries, the Chinese have become familiar with the potency and medicinal properties of herbs. Recently American entrepre- neurs have laid hold of the desire for an "all- natural" lifestyle by offering herbal weight-loss preparations. Consumers should be aware of the potential hazards of these products and consult a reputa- ble physician before taking any medications or starting a weight loss program. The fact is that medical science has still not discovered a more successful weight-loss for- mula than that which includes sound nutrition, regular exercise and a change in eating habits. Many people in search of an overnight solution to a long-term problem have reported feeling ill, dizzy, nauseous and "high" while on herbal weight-loss programs. The reasons could be that herbs as mentioned before can have powerful effects on the b...

Han, who lives in Lausanne, Switzer- land, was sitting in her pied-a terre on Beekman Place, drinking beer from a china mug and reflecting on change — both in China and in her own mind. "I'm a person who changes, who adapts," she said. "It's because of my avidity for learning.
