The Syrian World Volume 03, Issue 12


Volume 3 Issue 12 of The Syrian World published June 1929. The issue begins with an article by Dr. Bayard Dodge titled "Education and Catastrophe," which discusses the importance of education as an internal measure of 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 spends time with King Hussein, and in doing so sees how much the king enjoys the company of small animals and 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 short story "The Greatness of John Hasbani" by Rev. W. A. Mansur is next. A continuation of Dr. Philip K. Hitti's discussion of Book of Usama follows. Dr. George Knaysi writes about the relationship between science and 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.
