    SINGAPORE—Jon Huntsman, Jr., has been sworn in as the new U.S. ambassador here. Brother Huntsman, thirty-two, a member of the Mt. Olympus Second Ward, Salt Lake Mt. Olympus Stake, is the youngest U.S. ambassador. He served a mission in Taiwan and speaks Mandarin Chinese, as well as several other dialects. He has served as U.S. deputy assistant secretary of commerce in East Asia.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Kresimir Cosic, a former BYU basketball player and former member of the Yugoslavian Olympic basketball team, has been named deputy ambassador to the United States for the newly independent nation of Croatia. Brother Cosic was sent to the U.S. capital because he was familiar with America.

    LAIE, HAWAII—The honorable Qizen Zhu, the People’s Republic of China’s ambassador to the United States, and his wife recently visited the Polynesian Cultural Center. “We have a saying in China,” the ambassador remarked. “If any foreign friend comes to Beijing on a visit and if he hasn’t visited the Great Wall, he’s not considered to have visited Beijing at all. I think the same applies to Hawaii and the Polynesian Cultural Center.”

    PROVO, UTAH—Two graduate programs at Brigham Young University were listed in the top 25 percent of accredited schools in a recent U.S. survey published by U.S. News & World Report magazine. The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott School of Management and the J. Reuben Clark Law School were named among the top fifty business and law graduate programs in the nation.
