She said Burma is a thriving country in southeastern Asia, and is sometimes called t h e "Land of Laughter." The country is a little smaller than Texas, but it has more than twke as many people as that state; its population being between 1? and 20 million. About four fifths of the people live in small farming villages, where Buddhist monasteries, temples and pagodas, (tower-like religious shrines) rise above thatched bamboo houses, she stated. About one fifth live in the country's few large cities, and some half-civilized tribes roam, some of the hills and mountains. Burma is cool in the mountainous areas, and hot and wet in the coastal regions, M r s. Elmore pointed out. The fertile soil of the valley and coastal .plains is Burma's chief natural resource. Others than the different minerals, there are also precious stones of rubies and jades. Mrs. Elmore further stated that Mandalay, second largest city was the capital of Burma from 1860 to 1885, when t h e British captured the city, a n d moved the capitol to Rangoon, About 85 per cent of Mandalay was destroyed during W o r l d War II, but the Burmese rebuilt parts of it after the war. The city's chief industry is silk weaving, and is sold in the colorful b a z a a r s or market places.
