The Syrian World Vol. 03 no. 12


Vol. 3 no. 12 of The Syrian World published June 1929 begins with an article by Dr. Bayard Dodge titled Education and Catastrophe, which discusses the importance of education as an internal measure at preventing catastrophe in society. Following it is a continuation of Ameen Rihani's travel experiences in Arabia, this time a Lesson in Zoology and Healing. Rihani while once again spending time with King Hussein sees how much the kind enjoys the company of small animals and also takes an interest in traditional medical practices. The king enlists one of his own surgeons to help Rihani with arm pain, which disappears after a simple salve of butter and garlic. The next piece is a poem by Labeebee A. J. Hanna titled Will You Come Back! , which discusses the pain of remembering times lost. The Greatness of John Hasbani by Rev. W. A. Mansur is next, a short story that discusses the life of Hasbani. Another story related to the Book of Usama by Dr. Philip K. Hitti continues the issue with a discussion on the reward of honesty. By Dr. George Knaysi there is yet another discussion of science related to the biological significance of youth and age. The issue concludes with excerpts from the Arab press, the Reader's Forum, and news on the Syrian societies from around the U.S.
