When Hsu Ping-Chen, Consul General of China at San Francisco, and his family visited, local Chinese merchants took them on a long automobile tour of the city followed by a visit of the A-Y-P grounds. His family had held public office for many generations. His wife was a prominent member of the Chinese Women’s Free-Foot Association, which was campaigning against foot-binding. Their son attends school at Berkeley, California. They dined at Yung Hung Restaurant on Washington Street. Goon Dip and other prominent Chinese made speeches. He left the next day for official duties in Victoria and will visit the Fair grounds again on his return trip to San Francisco.
