HE Hon. Flora
Warren Seymour, the first woman to be a member of the United States Board of
Indian Commissioners, has long been interested in Indian affairs. She first went into
the Indian Service over ten years ago, and was stationed at Muskogee, Oklahoma, Phænix, Arizona, and on the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation at Dulce, New Mexico, after which she was engaged in legal work at the Indian Office in Washington. She was admitted to the bar of the District of Columbia in 1915, and later of Illinois and the United States Supreme Court. Mrs. Seymour is the founder and executive head of the Order of Bookfellows and the editor of its monthly magazine, "The Step Ladder." ARLE F. WALBRIDGE contributes a
review of books of travel to this week's Book Table. Mr. Walbridge, frequently the writer of unsigned reviews in the same department, is a graduate of the University of Vermont, in the class of 1917. He is librarian of the Harvard Club of New York, an assistant editor of the "Library Journal," and the author of reviews in the “Book Review” and elsewhere.

Is the Easterner right? Are you missing the realities of life?
One pigmy seems full grown to another. One American finds little new or different in another American. Main Street, Babbittville, gets very little kick out of Main Street, Smithtown.
But ASIA Magazine mirrors to you another side of life-different from yours as night from day. ASIA gives a cross-section of this new idea of life in intimate pictures of the inside of Asia's homes, great and small. You meet the splendid gentleman of the East with all his distinction. You see the unusual woman of its inner life and know how subtly she uses her power over men. You see the spirit of its
people — its great religions Christianity in the making. You see unfolded the working of the large world drama in the struggle of races, as the West strives to develop the East for its material gain — and the awakened Eastern giant rises to assert independence.
“Asia is not simply a place on the map. It is a way of looking at life."
ASIA Magazine is more than a look into the East. It is a fascinating combination of the best of East and West-of the two great ideas of life in the world today.

The East has a vastly different idea. The Oriental says he gets more joy out of his leisure than we do out of our wealth. He sees more happiness in the beauty of life than in high buildings, motor cars, and big business.
