Kanjlchi the brilliant young Japan- ese who holds the unique position of lecturer on the Far East at Dart- mouth has been granted leave of which he will pass in his native country under the aus- pices of the Library of Congress au'd of Yale University. With appropriations of from each of these institutions Dr. Asakawa will pass several months' in Japan for the sole purpose of making large and systematic collections of books from public and private sources. Dr. Asakawa is given full freedom and authority in the and will employ the most efficient as- sistance available in his native land. On his visit to Washington last week he received final instructions for tho and the Washington au- under notice he has repeatedly and from which he took his de- believe that he is capable of prosecuting the work thoroughly and efficiently. Dr. Asakawa expects to be absent from America over a year. In addi- tion to passing much time in his na- tive country he will visit China and possibly Siam. It has long been his desire to know more of these neighboring and he will pursue in as well as in his native courses of study and ob- servation impossible elsewhere. This will be merely inci- dental. Ilis main purpose in these countries is to make a scientific col- lection of books with the view oE bringing to America the best collect- ion of Japanese books outside the kingdom itself. Dartmouth's talented Japanese lec- turer is a native of Fukishima. and a graduate of Waseda College. In early lite he gave evidence of bril- lian evidence which was fully vindicated in his educational work in Japan and the United States. Dr. a well known journalist and political writer of intro- dure4-4iim to President -and- he entered college in the fall of 1SP5 and graduated in 1S99 with the de- groe of A. B. He was a close stu- took very high rank in all his and stood high in the es- eom of both the faculty and the un- lersraduates. After his graduation from Dart- mouth Mr. Asakawa passed three years at specializing in the de- larimcnts of history and social science. The application of the TiCthcd which he acquired at Yale to iiis independent field of resoaivli his thesis for the doctorate This was regarded as an IMP- anil gained hir.i the first award on jhe Hadley foundation for tho publication of theses. This ihosis was recently published in re- form as Early instituaion- al l.iio of Jnpnn Dr. a's present position at art mouth is of his ov n that of but his work is incorpor- ated into UIP college curriculum on a par with mhcr work.

The advanced courses in particular are designed to a thorough knowlodse of eastern on which men in Amer- ica nro so well posted and they are conducted freedom yet -Aiih a Uioushtfulness which havo uiadc them justly popular. Dr. Asa- kawa's mauiK-r is mo-st and lie exhibits the keen and quick and lofty ambition of his people. President Hadley of Yale character- ized him as man of unusual schol- arship and and scholar of philosophical temper and great accuracy in Dr. Asakawa's critical ability as a student could nowhere be more em- phatically shown than in his book on Russo-Japanese Its Causes and pubished in De- cember a year ago and since run through three editions. After innum- erable complex and colored newspa- per accounts of the causes and issues of the war in the East it was a satis- faction to find the question vigorously and impartially handled in book form. His policy of stating simple facts and of letting the facts stand for themselves is a dominant and meritorious character of his work. And these historical facts the author presents in that logical thor- oughness which was characteristic of the military operations of his coun try men in the recent war. That his book is one of the most illuminating discussions of the eastern situation yet published is proved by the fact that the author attended the Portsmouth peace in an official capacity. In the last four and especially since the out- hreak of the recent war. Dr. Asaka- wa has 'been in constant demand as a lecturer and magazine contributor. Dr. Asakawa left Hanover today and will sail from Seattle Feb. 10. He expects to return to America in the summer of 1907 and resume his lectureship in Dartmouth tho follow- ing September.
