(By The AFssoefntcd Pres3) , tola, Kan., July 14.-—On the^evo jot his return to mission work in China, after a long furlough visiting the homo folks, tha Rev. Porry O. Hanson of Iolu declared that dosplte the chaotic condition of politics In China, that nation has a promising future and economically and industrially Is forging ahead. Of special interest to Kansans who are acquainted with the industrial court law of this state, China has taken a step In the matter ot stabilizing labor conditions described by the ltev. Mr. Hanson as "aloiig the lines of the most advanced legislation of the west." He especially Bees a reason for hope for China in the "breaking away from old traditions and superstitions" and the discarding of "the old gods of mud and stone." The Rev. Mr. Hanson will sail for China from San Francisco on the President Pierce, July 26. Pertaining to his work abroad, he said: A Great Task. "We return to China to a great task as one of four men missionaries among four million people ready to listen to our message. We can establish Institutional churches with ovan- geilstlc, educational, medical and social activities in as many places the gifts from home make possible. Often $1,000 with generous local cooperation will provide needed equipment for a city of 10,000, whllo smaller amounts accomplish wonders In the smaller places. Thore are trained Chinese workers, too, available it wo have the funds tor the salaries ranging from J10. to $75 per month, according to the preparation and efficiency o£ the men. Hard to Understand.

There Is reason for encouragement in the increasing influence ot the Croat Christian General, Feng Yu Hslang, aud other true patriots. In spite ot the political situation the economic development has gone steadily on. Every year millions of Chinese capital Is' spent abroad in the purchase of machinery tor mills, mines, agriculture, etc. Westernized Industry bring now industrial problems. Tho great Natloual Christian Conference In Shanghai last year gave duo consideration to the social aspects ot Christianity. As a result It is encouraging to note that on March 29," this year, the government promulgated regulations governing labor conditions lu tho factories, along the lines of the most advanced legislation of the West. It is apparent tha£ out of the present chaotic condition In China a great and powerful nation is developing. , Breaking Away Prom Traditions. "There Is, in China, a breaking away from old traditions and superstitions. Commercialism Is substituting the almighty dollar for the old gods ot mud and stone. It is for the missionaries to hold China steady during these changing days and help to make the Christ dorulnent In the new life oyer there. We are not only making possible a personal salvation for individuals, but we are taking to China that which'will prevent the emergence In a few years of a powerful, athcistlo, materialistic nation.
