Another of the leaders among the Christian group Is H. H. Kung, who traces his ancestry directly to Confucius. The Chinese name for Confucius is "Kung futse" which means "Father Rung". Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism are the reigning religions of China, Miss Eames explains, although Ihcre are 2,000,000 Chris- lians in the country. Confucianism, which Miss Eames says has contributed greatly to the formation of the Chinese character cm- bodying brotherly love, loyalty, politeness, love pf peace and remembrance of kindnesses, Is the ethical religion of the country and draws Its followers mainly from the official class while Taoism and Buddhism arc practiced mainly by the masses. "Festivals in China are gay occasions," Miss Eames says as she goes on to discuss the customs of tills foreign country. The biggest celebration Is the New Year festival which begins two weeks before the New Year and continues two weeks after the New Year. Tills is a lime for-families to get together and for old accounts to lie settled. Although the Chinese have officially adopted the same New Year observed here, the old New Year Is still the time for the festival. •' „! The spring festival comes 1GO days after the winter solstice andi is comparable In some ways to our Easter. Idols arc removed from resting places and there is worship at the graves. This Ls the Chinese "Chlng Ming." Then comes the Dragon Boat festival which Is observed the 15th day of Ihe fifth moon.
