CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1942. o CHINESE CIRCLE BURMA RD. TOWN TAKEN BY JAPS 10,000 Invaders Slain; Fail to Win Kinhwa. War Developments in East China CHUNGKING, China, May 28 I Thursday (.IPi. Chinese troops have encircled Japanese occupied Lungllng, the Burma road town west ot the Sal-ween river in Yunnan province, the central Chinese news agency reported today. This encouraging news came after the Chinese had reported that n Japa nese army of 100,000 men driving southward in the seaboard province of Chekiang had suffered 15,300 cas ualties without being able to take Kinhwa, the provincial capital. At least 10,000 of the Japanosc were reported killed. Front line dispatches this morning raid the Chinese had beaten off a third violent Japanese attack on Kinhwa yesterday morning. "The defenders themselves also suffered some casualties," these reports said. Hurl Tons of Shells. The Japanese were hurling tons of artillery shells and aerial bombs on the Kinhwa defenses without being able to advance, it was said. The American "Flying. Tigers" were reported still hammering Japanese troops in the Salween river area, presumably in the movement on Lung-ling after the Chinese had repulsed Japanese attempts to cross the river. The surrounding of the Japanese in Lungling, 25 miles west of the river, indicated the Chinese were making good in a counterdrive. The Chekiang fighting, however, still was the major front. Situation Still Precarious. About 1,500 Japanese were killed when they advanced thru a Chinese mine field, exploding 70 or 80 ot the buried mines, the communique added, nnd only about 200 of tho Japanese who later succeeded in entering the suburb or Kwangkitow managed to rsrape from a Chlncso bayonet charge. The situation of Kinhwa was still precarious, however, with lighting continuing to rage on three sides ol the city. Attack in Chekiang Triangle. In the Chekiang province theater, on the east coast. Chinese attacks designed to hamstring the Japanese were reported. The attacks were made, said the Central News agency, in the triangle between Hangchow, Kashing, and Wuhing in northernmost Chekiang, 100 miles southwest of Shanghai, and behind the bases along Hangchow bay, from which the Japanese drive on Kinhwa was launched. Wuchen, 40 miles northeast of Hangchow, was said to have fallen to the Chinese. Flyers of the American volunteer group caused considerable damage in machine-gunning and bombing attacks yesterday on Japanese supply bases on the Burma-Yunnan border, it was announced.

Japs Scout Indian Defenses, CALCUTTA, India, May 27 UP,- Japanese scouting parties were reported today testing British Indian defenses as Lieut. Gon. Sir Noel Beresford-Pelrse, commander of the Ganges delta forces, strengthened the border with fresh troops nnd reformed the veterans who retreated from Burma.

C H IN A WILL NOT CAPITULATE, SAYS WELLINGTON KOO X Chlrnco Tribune Vrrsti Service. 1 LONDON, May 27. Dr. Wellington Koo, Chinese ambassador, speaking to the China society at Oxford university today, stressed that despite Japan's renewed onslaught against China, the Chinese will not capitulate when three quarters of the world is now ranged with them in common defense of freedom and democracy." He interpreted the new Japanese pushes as an attempt to converge on Chungking in order to force the Chinese government to come to terms. Japan, he asserted, knows well that Chinese resistance constitutes the chief obstacle to its dream of domination and is consequently anxious to force a surrender. "It will be in the interests of the common cause for the other united nations to rush air reinforcements to the Chinese front, and the more the better," he declared. "Meanwhile China, with her reserve stocks of arms, munitions, and equipment, will do her best to hold out until the tide turns."

HTS ILL 7 FLYERS fLOST' 45 DAYS IN JUNGLE GET BACK SAFELY Another Missing 26 Days Also Returns. AN ALLIED OPERATIONAL BASE, Australia, May 27 OP). Tattered and shaggy but grinning, an American bomber crew has returned lo (his base after being forced down In the swampy wilds of New Gulnen and lost from headquarters for a record span of 45 days. It was n dny of glad homecoming all around, for with them camo an Amerlean fighter pilot who had been out 26 days. Several bomber crews have made their way back to baso after being lost many days among the native tribes, but this outfit, headed by Pilot Louis W. Ford, 22 years old, of Los Angeles, set the record of nearly seven weeks In tho builh. Suffered from Malaria. Tho cnliro crow suffered from malaria and tropical ulcers, but they found friends along the way and generally were in good shape when they pulled In.' Tho oilier members ot the crew are Lieut.

Loranger, Saginaw, Mich. ' The hero of the second homecoming is Fighter Pilot Arthur E. Andres, 23, of Newton, Mass. Out on his first combat mission over Lae and Sala-maua, New Guinea ports, he was nipped by Japanese Zero navy fighters but ho kept scrapping so long that he ran out ot gasoline some distance from- Lae and a greater distance from his home base. Crash-Landed on Beach. He crash-landed on a beach 30 feet wide, pitted his stamina and Inge nuity against hardships galore for nearly a month and arrived here to find this compensation: Fifteen letters and two pictures from his wife, Barbara, and promotion to the rank of first lieutenant. The experiences ot Pilot Ford's bomber crew were like something out of a movie. Here is his story: "We got what we" went after ot. Rabaul but anti-aircraft fire crippled us and we cleared out on only one engine. We lost gasoline and our hydraulic system was knocked out, but by coaxing the piano and urging her along sometimes loss than 100 feet above water we got her over land which we figured wasn't occupied by the Japanese. Como Down in Marsh. " We came down a few miles in-lund on n marsh. We hit going more than 100 miles an hour, skidded about a hundred yards, and wrapped a wing around the tree. Nobody was hurt." They got out and slnrlcd sloshing around in the swamp water, hut they gave up trying to make tho coast until the next day. Ford, Disbro, and Long struck out the next morning, leaving orders for tho other four to come on alone If "They also SERVE who only sinnd nnd wai." lie was big and manly, she was little and lovable; Iter eyes, his eyes, were soft and sweet, big and wondering; the train stood restlessly; each had stained cheeks, held hands tightly unashamed; under her arm a box of Mrs. Snyder's, one under his arm, too ; last gifts, and each was richer.

They waded waist deep thru swamp water and pushed thru 12-foot cane grass to a river, soon found a native outrigger canoe and reached a coastal village by dark that night. "At first the natives scared us and we scared them," Disbro said. " On the eighth day a Church of England missionary and an Australian government man came by and picked us up. On the way to the next vil lago a Japanese bomber spotted us and dropped 15 bombs but failed to hit us." The crew spent three weeks in that village waiting for help to take them another step along the road back, existing on a diet mostly of fruits and rice. They had to spend two weeks in a second village beforo coming here. A FAVORITE IN GENTLEMEN'S SUMMER SUITS f, ' ' I M 'X AM FINE CLOTHES for MEN TEN-OUNCE Cabardine tailored especially for A.
