Carl Loker of York, pulled down over her long straight black hair. Her shoes were the regulation canvas and rubber shoes worn by ordinary soldiers. If she had any glamor the Marines couldn't see it. Koad Show The Chinese put on an Oriental road show for the Marines. They said that now that an armistice was signed and the fighting stopped they hoped the Americans would go home soon. Personally, one Marine said, he thought it was a good idea. The Chinese entertainers spread banners saying, "Long live peace." They put up another sign simply spelling "Peace." "The band came out. They had what passed for a french horn and a trumpet," said Sgt. Ted Moyes, Manning, S. C. They also had two small Chinese cymbals and an apparatus that looked like a tom-tom and was played the same way, A Racket A couple of Chinese started wav- g long red and yellow banners Pa. The Marines have another name for her but use the term Drauon Lady in polite society. "That bug is ugly," said Pfc. Tommy Williams as he peered through a telescope. A line of men waited their turns at the telescope. • The Dragon Lady appeared to be about 21 years old. She was hardly five feet tall and her figure remained a mystery beneath her shapeless uniform. She sang several Korean and Chinese songs in a soft, pleasant voice. The Marines appreciatively knocked off work and listened. It wasn't much of a show but they admitted it was highly unusual and the only show they had at the time. Finally, the Dragon Lady sang the plaintive "Arirang," Korea's most popular song and then broadcast in her lisping Oriental voice, Goodby." "Goodby Americans, Goodby, Goodby."
