   Yet in spite of its solemn buildings and its lack of fire-escapes, ventilation, sanitation, and up-to-date kitchen facilities, I persist in my assertion that I believe that CPU (China Pharmaceutical University) , in its way, is the greatest school in which I have studied. I am aware that this is an extreme statement and needs the explanation. CPU is much larger in numbers, for example, than my middle school--XMFLS(Xiamen Foreign Language School), and is much richer. To mention XMFLS beside the 13 640 students of CPU sounds ridiculous. In point of money, the endowment of the CPU, which gained from pharmaceutical industries as well as alumnus, seems to leave XMFLS nowhere.

However, to any one accustomed to the best models of a middle school curriculum, the programme of CPU's is frankly quite laughable. There is less Art and Humanities in the place than would be found with us in a medicine college. Hardly a single professor at CPU would read music scores if he met it in the music room. The CPU student learns nothing of music, geography, painting, psychology, etc. Any middle school students can have a good skill at singing, drawing and reciting, besides, they are broad and found in geography.

Strange though it seems to us, there are no courses at Oxford in heat, plumbing, electric writing, gas-fitting or in Salesmanship, or the use of a blow-torch. Apparently,...
