EDGAR SNOW Thursday April 11, U. of Hawaii campus
Film at Kennedy Theatre-12:30 P.M.

Lecture at Spaulding 115 7:30 P.M.

Film again after the lecture

Mr. Snow is an "old China Hand" having spent many years there as a student and teacher and newspaper man. During his infest stay in China (1964-65), Mr. Snow interviewed Premier Chou En-lai, Foreign Minister Ch'en Yi and others. Chairman Mao Tse-tung talked with him for hours, in a dialogue which was published around the the world.

Mr. Snow said "in general, the film follows a kind of picture-book script of "Red Star Over China" and "The Other side of the River", two books I wrote about the revolution, before and after."
