HE Hon. Flora

Warren Seymour, the first woman to be a member of the United States Board of

Indian Commissioners, has long been interested in Indian affairs. She first went into

the Indian Service over ten years ago, and was stationed at Muskogee, Oklahoma, Phænix, Arizona, and on the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation at Dulce, New Mexico, after which she was engaged in legal work at the Indian Office in Washington. She was admitted to the bar of the District of Columbia in 1915, and later of Illinois and the United States Supreme Court. Mrs. Seymour is the founder and executive head of the Order of Bookfellows and the editor of its monthly magazine, "The Step Ladder." ARLE F. WALBRIDGE contributes a

review of books of travel to this week's Book Table. Mr. Walbridge, frequently the writer of unsigned reviews in the same department, is a graduate of the University of Vermont, in the class of 1917. He is librarian of the Harvard Club of New York, an assistant editor of the "Library Journal," and the author of reviews in the “Book Review” and elsewhere.

power they bring-instead of the worry of our headlong rush.

Is the Easterner right? Are you missing the realities of life?

One pigmy seems full grown to another. One American finds little new or different in another American. Main Street, Babbittville, gets very little kick out of Main Street, Smithtown.

But ASIA Magazine mirrors to you another side of life-different from yours as night from day. ASIA gives a cross-section of this new idea of life in intimate pictures of the inside of Asia's homes, great and small. You meet the splendid gentleman of the East with all his distinction. You see the unusual woman of its inner life and know how subtly she uses her power over men. You see the spirit of its

people — its great religions Christianity in the making. You see unfolded the working of the large world drama in the struggle of races, as the West strives to develop the East for its material gain — and the awakened Eastern giant rises to assert independence.

“Asia is not simply a place on the map. It is a way of looking at life."

ASIA Magazine is more than a look into the East. It is a fascinating combination of the best of East and West-of the two great ideas of life in the world today.

ERTON Du Puy is a former newspaper reporter and correspondent. For the last eighteen years he has been living in Washington, writing news features, magazine

articles, and books. CANO ANON DIMNET is a professor at the

Collége Stanislas, in Paris, and a well-known lecturer and writer. He is the author of a number of books and contributes to French, English, and American periodicals. It was in 1898, when he was Abbé Dimnet, that he began writing for English magazines. He has contributed to The Outlook articles on Caillaux and Herriot.

HAT are you getting out of life? A good

a car-a house in the country? And

after that? Head of your business-a comfortable fortune-more cars-a social position ?

The East has a vastly different idea. The Oriental says he gets more joy out of his leisure than we do out of our wealth. He sees more happiness in the beauty of life than in high buildings, motor cars, and big business.

He looks upon his possessions-home, servants,
wealth-as incidents of life. In the wisdom of his
forty centuries of experiment-compared with our
three-he knows the end of life is in the enjoy-
ment of every day, not in the postponement of real
living until he makes money. His art of living
has given him repose of mind, peace—and the
