Wynn Cowan Fairfield, D. D., secretary in the foreign department of the American board of commisioners for foreign missions, and formerly of Taiku, North China, will speak Friday evening in the Congregational church on "Facing Realities in the Far East." the Rev. A. S. Carlson announced. Dr. Fairfield, who was born in Tabor and grew up in Washington, D. C., is a graduate of Oberliu college, class of 1907, which institution conferred upon him the degree of D. D. in 1926. He served under the American board in China from 1910 to 1D29. He served as a missionary in an interior station in China, 1910-1929, first in church work and then for 10 years in educational work. In 1929 health conditions required the farn- DR V VYNN COW AN FAIRFIELD ily to return to America. Dr. Fair-^. field then served as an officer of the American board in correspondence with China and Japan, and since 1932, with Africa. Returned in July. Dr. Fairfield returned in July from a seven months' absence in the far east, during which he not only visited the work of his own board, but was in touch also with the outstanding Christian leaders of other denominations. During parts of his visit in China he worked in close co-operation with the secretaries of the Methodist and Presbyterian foreign mission boards who carry similar responsibilities. In America he is active in co-operative work among mission boards, serving .as trustee of a union hospital and three union universities in China as well as chairman of the rural missions co-operating committee. This committee links 14 of the leading mission boards of Canada and the United States with each other and with the Agricultural Missions Foundation in the co-ordination and development of rural missions abroad. Went Through Japan. Dr. Fairfield's recent travels took him through the larger centers of Japan and to a number of points in inland China, as well as to North China and Fukien. These included the province of Kiangsi, from which the communist armies were recently forced out by Generalissimo Chiang- Kai-saek, and in which an intei'de- nominational Christian rural center is being developed at Lichwan. Recent Sino-Japanese . relations in North China make timely his observations there and in Japan. He was in touch with Kagawa of Japan and H. H. K'ung, minister of finance of China, as well as with scores of less well-known leaders. He is deeply sympathetic with the problems faced by Japan in attempting to bring 1 her national life to modern standards and nearer to western standards of living, as well as with China in her efforts to change her age-old culture for one adequate to ensure national prosperity in the twentieth century. He believes that such things as are now happening in the far e_ast can be understood only in the light of centuries of history and the actual present social and economic conditions, and that the most practical hope of a permanent solution lies in the mutual fellowship and understanding which an extension of thorough-going Christian experience will bring to both countries. Dr. Robertson, Still Weak From 10 Days in Mine, Goes Home HALIFAX, N. S., (J)--Dr. D. E. Robertson, still weak from his recent 10 days' imprisonment in the Moose River gold mine, traveled by train Tuesday to his home in Toronto. Aside from weakness, he appeared to have suffered little effect from the entombment. He left behind his companion in the entombment, Alfred Scadding of Toronto, who still is under treatment for the severe case of trench foot ho contracted in the mine. Physicians said Scadding's condition was improving rapidly and any danger that amputation would be necessary had passed. EXPECTS PROBE Manning Says Vandenberg of Michigan to Give Matter "Thorough Airing." OTTUMWA, I/Pi--Mayor Edwin Manning of Ottumwa, candidati for the republican nomination fo; United Stales senator, declared Tuesday that Senator Vandenberg of Michigan "intends to give the Iowa WPA situation a thorough airing if he is able to obtain a genera; WPA investigation." "Senator Vandenberg told me recently," Mayor Manning declared in a campaign speech here, "that he now is concentrating on bringing about a complete investigation of the WPA and he termed the situation in Iowa as I placed it before him a 'startling exhibit.' ·In that he is right. The Iowa WPA situation is a startling exhibit of the Harry Hopkins (national WPA administrator) and the James J. Farley (national democratic chairman) alliance to use money which should go to the un employed to Tammanyize the state of Iowa. "I hope Vandenberg's' investiga^ tion will explain part-time employment of a democratic county chairman at 52,000. a year, payment o: $1,800 a year to wives of certain democratic candidates for congress and why certain employes were transferred from relief administra tion payrolls to WPA payrolls a double salaries."
