The Syrian World Volume 03, Issue 10


Volume 3 Issue 10 of The Syrian World published April 1929. The issue begins with an article by Rev. W. A. Mansur titled "Syrians' Loyalty to America" which discusses the nature of Syrians' dedication to the United States, the basis of their political allegiance, and the tests of their sincerity. Next, Ibn El-Khoury discusses another aspect of Lebanese culture with an article on the Village Festival, which mostly focuses on religious holidays. Following it is the transcription of an address from the Testimonial Dinner given in honor of Ameen Rihani by Philip K. Hitti, primarily highlighting Rihani's contribution to Arabic lore. After the long discussion of Rihani's importance in literature, there is a collection of Arabic riddles by Elia D. Madi translated to English by Andrew Ghareeb. A short introspective poem by Kahlil Gibran titled "Fame" follows. The next article, written by Alfred Mussawir, discusses the origin of fire-blowing, a talent identified distinctly with a Syrian slave in Sicily named Eunus. The final piece of writing in this issue is a poem by Labeebee A. J. Hanna which is dedicated to the Federation of Syrian Societies and discusses the fellowship present in their confederation. The issue concludes with excerpts from the Arab press, the Reader's Forum, and an update on political developments in Syria.
