Heroes of the daring mission were Capt Edward McCallister, Alle ghany, Va and Sgt John Fox, Ta-coma. Wash. They were chosen from Army grave registration search teams because they speak Chinese.

Putting on the garb of Chinese priests, they made their way on foot into Lololand last March, entering by the Sinkiang-Szechwan Province border region. They took the role" of priests because the Lololanders, while nominally under Chinese rule, rarely the mountain people were slow to trust them.
