Charlie Chan's Chinese Proverbs, American Radio Features Syndicate (1935)

In 1935, as a promotional item for the upcoming Charlie Chan radio program (evidently "commencing Sept. 30" of that year and airing every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evening), American Radio Features Syndicate issued a 16-pace booklet containing 60 "Chinese Proverbs."  Although, with one or two exceptions, none of these sayings originated from the Charlie Chan movies or the stories by Earl Derr Biggers, they offered readers tidbits of wisdom, most of which were worthy of the great Oriental detective!
