Amoy, China, is our little “breath of the Orient.” She came from St. Mary’s Hall, Shanghai, to study Commercial Design with us. While over here, she is living at the Y.M.C.A. Oh, no! Rosalind is not lonesome. If you want to see a real sunny smile, just ask her about “him.” Her quiet manner and genial speech have won her a picture in our memories, which time itself cannot efface.

This dear little lady from Amoy, China, is our only suggestion of the Orient, and a very sweet one it is. She went to school at St. Mary’s Hall, Shanghai, whence she came to study commercial design with us. Her faithful appliance to her work, and the dexterity with which she handles her problems, should be models of diligence to us all. Her work, too, seems to reflect all the daintiness and liveliness of the little oriental herself. While she is over here she lives at the Y.M.C.A.
