A doctor is a qualified
doctor when he keeps
abreast of the times.
vancement in medical
science is constantly
achieved through dedicated
men and women. Because
the field of medicine be-
comes ever more special-
ized and technical, the
concientious doctor seeks

to make available the best of educated medical minds...to
doctors of Oriental ancestry...who seek to keep themselves
committed to be worthy of the profession.
Throughout the year, the Symposium meets in restaurants of
the Orient as well as an occasional American restaurant.
Guest speakers well qualified in the medical field are in-
vited to take the rostrum. The Symposium offers the oppor-
tunity to the doctor to know varied methods of treatment...
to compare and evaluate in cross-reference...to understand
more thoroughly in an exchange of knowledge the most effec-
tive care for his patient for a speedier recovery.
It is a well known fact that a doctor worthy of the name
studies an entire lifetime to be of most value to his
patients. To be a well informed doctor of value, he keeps

"Several accounts indicate some evidence
that Chinese may have come to the land
that is now known as Texas more than 2,000
years before Christ. Davis, of the Insti-
tute of Texas Cultures, cites Shan Hai
King, a Chinese history compiled about
2,250 B.C., which tells of overseas explor-
ations from China.
Some scholars, matching landforms, mineral
outcropping and wildlife, place one of the
Chinese routes through the Big Bend Country
of Texas Indian legends and the discovery
of Chinese artifacts in the area lend cred-
ibility to this theory."
The paper's major emphasis, though, is on the
period from 1870 to the present. It is due to be
published in September of this year and will be avail
able thru Dr. Tatum, 748-1965.
