To Nancy Ryan, China is more than
table-tennis and the Great Wall. ' r
It is lush, green gardens, well-fed, smiling
children and clean factories. That is what the
former graduate assistant of Centennial
College captured on film the summer of 1973.
This week, Ryan, who is currently an
assistant professor of English a Staten
" Island Community College In New York City,
has returned to share her trip with Lincoln.
She has shown her slides at Sheldon Art
Gallery and Neihardt Residential Center and
will show them Sunday at UM HE Common-
place. She said she would also show tha
slides to any group on request.
' Ryan-went -to China with faculty members
and students from New" York. They were
accompanied by four Chinese translators.
The trip was paid for by the college.
While she shows the films, Ryan tells how
the Chinese lived before the Communist
revolution and how they live now.
She said she is biased because she has
seen how well people are living and how
clean the country is.
Ryan said there is no political . apathy
because there are revolutionary committees
in each village that make decisions for the
community. She said young people are
encouraged to become involved with the
government and to make decisions.
During her talk at Sheldon Art Gallery
Friday, ja Chinese woman said she agreed
with what Ryan said "except people in China ,
do not have freedon of thought and that Is
what is important." ;
Yin-Wing-Hsu said what Ryan doesn't
. know Is that the people are afraid to say
things In opposition of the government. She
said they are net really happy even though
they are being fed and clothed because thsy
can't "believe what they want to believe."

University, said shft carnfl to the United
States in' 1949 to work on her Ph.D. and

Ryan said she hopes to go back to China
and work in the fields. She said she does not
want to go back as a tourist, because she
would like to find out more about how tho
Chinese feci, ' '
She said sho thinks she could do that in tho
interior t tho country because Ihero tho
students know how to speak English and sho
could speak with them. ' :
1 As an English teacher, Ryan said she is
concerned that Chinese people do not have
! access to literature. One of her guides,
j though, rhe said, had just finished reading
! Jonathan Livingston Seagull, and sho said
she spioke with him about the book.
