Fantastic Stories of Asiatic Heroes There's the Case of Jap Aviator Who Dived With Bombs Hy JACK STENNETT Al' Feature Service Writer Oriental temperament coupled with a haired brewing more than 60 years is making the Sino-Japanese conflicl a "suicide war." In Ihe two months of major conflict, an amazing number of cases of fanatical heroism ending in self-destruction have been reported on both sides, They range from the traditional hara-kiri of the Japanese lo Ihe suicide of masses of 300 or more Chinese who have walked stolidly into the withering fire of enemy batteries. Tradition and Patriotism On the one hand are the Japanese, aflame again with their long-smoldering feeling of "manliest destiny," and subscribing to a point of view, generations old, which has made of suicide a formal ceremony of expiation, devo- lion, protest or contempt. On the other are the Chinese, presenting their most united front in recent limes and giving vent lo Iheir new nalionalism in fevrish patriotism. Early in the conflict, Shimezo Maho, a Japanese merchant cast, himself into Ihe scac from the suicide island of Oshima that the government might have his $3,000 life insurance lo add lo Ihe war chest. Commander Kaoru Fujita, in Tokyo, divorced his bride of three months that he might have no distralion in his fer- venl upplicalion lo the war. Three months later, in north China, he met heroic death in action.' Quicker Than Ilara-Kiri Tokyo newspapers reported thai all Japanese aviators were equipped with pistols as well as Ihe small, Iradilional Samurai swords. If they were shot down and had no time before capture to perform the riles of hara-kiri, they might shoot themselves with the pistol, the dispatch explained.

Might Regret It Later ANNAPOLIS, Md.—Hoping to encourage the Irish to take up crew, Navy has sent a racing shell to Notre Diiine, as a gift. swam a creek under fire clambered up the muddy banks and with their bare bodies, spiked a Chinese battery. White Bands of Death At the junction of the Whangpoo and Yangtze rivers, 70 picked members of thc Shirodasukitai, the "White Band of Death," went ashore in a small launch. Those few who reached the wall of flame that was the Chinese land battery, died in hand-to-hand combat. Such cases are, by no means, confined to Nippon's hordes. There was thc Chinese aviator who engaged four enemy bombers and returned again and again to the combat until his plane was shot lo pieces. Another of China's "devil dogs of the air" staged a lone raid over Shanghai in a September dusk. Flying low, he dived into the hail from anti-aircraft guns to drop bombs uncomfortably close to the Japanese flagship, Idzuma. For days, waring Chinese operated a fleet of mosquito-like seasleds in the Whangpoo and Yangtze, defying the gunboats to blow them from the water as they dashed madly on solo runs into the fleet to fire torpedoes at close range. March to Annihilation It was the Japanese who reported, in the battle of Lotion, a women's "battalion of death," composed of 20- year-old Chinese communist girls who did not know the meaning of the word retreat. And in the sanvc Uatlle, a company of 300 grimly determined, Chinese crashed through the Japanese lines, inflicting terrific lasses, and continued their advance until their battalion was annihilated. ciers take their special tape timin clocks to headquarters where officia synchronize them with a master cloc to record the day, hour, minute an econd each bird returns to its loft. Three Bands on Leg On thc night before a race, fanciers ke hundreds of pigeons to head- uarters. There the birds are register- el and rubber countermarks are snap- ed around their legs. Each bird bears three identification umbers. His life-long number is on seamless aluminum leg band. His acing number is on the outside of the ounlermarker, within the folds of vhich is a third, recretly recorded, lumber. of the Greater Chicago American Racing Pigeofi Union.

Each pigeod tries for a front row position from which to spring into action at th8 signal 'Go'." <*»-*•••> Get Us a Lion, Haig LONDON-Walter Hagen has shot A lot of birdies in his time, but now he's going after bigger stuff. The famous American golf pro will go to Africa to hunt big game before he returns from his British tour. The banded birds are placed in pan- I niers, or willow shipping baskets, are taken in special railroad cars o thc starting point. Here the panniers are stacked in a row, five and six high. Everything is ready. The concourse racing secretary watches the time and gives the signal, "Go." The doors fly open and the rice is on. Home headquarters are notified by telegraph of thc starling time and weather conditions. This information is telephoned to the participating fancier. He studies wind and weather and calculates the hour and minute the first of his entries should dive for the home loft. He waits in his yard, scanning thc skies. He sees a speck far above the housetop and dashes into the loft with his timing clock. A bird's speed is calculated in yards per minute, a mathematical task for headquarters officials when they open the fancier's clock. They're Eager for Action Pigeon racing is called a gentleman's sport because its followers—there are 30,000 in the United States—race their birds for diplomas rather than high cash awards. They may place side bets and win a few dollars, but thej consider it lucky if they break even with expenses of about 53 a year per bird. The average loft contains 50 pigeons which have been bred or bought at prices ranging from $5 to 510 apiece. The largest known privately owned loft has 700 birds and the highest recorded price paid for one pigeon, a consistent champion, is $1,100. "Racing pigeons are as green as race horses," says W. R.
