Associated Prei. ' TIENTSIN, Aug. 3. Japanese Ifcarplanes bombed the vanguard fcf the advancing Chinese armies today at Tenchow on the border ipf Hopeh and Shantung provinces BO miles south of here. A column of Japanese infantry, Supported by artillery and tanks, was pressing southward by forced ' inarches to dispute the advance of the central government troops Into Hopeh province. Japan claims she holds a special ephere of influence in the North China province and in a week of Undeclared war has captured its two main cities Tientsin and Peiping. V The Japanese troops were re-fyrted to have reached a point 15 "miles south of Tientsin, fighting scattered engagements as they advanced. Japanese headquarters feported, however, they had met Co real resistance. The advance brought the Japanese within a few miles of the eastern column of the 29th Chinese army, now being reorganized after their defeats at Ueintsin and along the line of the railroad to Peiping. The Japanese advance to the outh was along the Tientsin to Jukon railroad, the same route the large bodies of troops ordered to the north by the central government were said to be following, ffhe Tientsin-Pukow line bisects Bhantung province and is the Ranking government's direct link ith the north. The Japanese movement to the south from the general headquar-ers at Tientsin was the material ization of their long exDected hrust to gain a deep enough front o assure strategical and military lontroi of Hopeh province. I Scouting ; operations were re ported far afield in Shantung province with Japanese bombers attacking as far south as Ping-yuan, 30 miles below the Hopeh border. Observation planes were said to have flown over Tsinanfu, capital of Shantung province and 200 miles in a direct line south from Tientsin. Authoritative advices said the spearhead of the Chinese advance had reached Techow and that independent units had already crossed the border into Hopeh Hopeh province to bolster the reorganization of the 29th army. The approach of the two armies south of Tientsin turned virtually all sections of Hopeh province into a field of operations. Far to the north Japanese reported Chinese troops from Shansi province were massing at Kalgan beyond the Great Wall. Chinese asserted Japanese planes had bombed the Nankou Pass in the Great Wall 30 miles north of Peiping. To the southwest of Peiping a large body of Japanese troops were marching against Paotingfu, capital of Hopeh province and concentration point for the west ern column of the National Chi nese armies. Chinese reported the Japanese were advancing be hind a screen of aerial bombard ment. Within the conquered areas of Peiping and Tientsien Japanese administrative officers were sys tematically attempting to obliter ate the last vestiges of the Nank ing government's influence. Under Japanese direction at Peiping police were conducting a house to house search, destroying pictures of Chinese Nationalist leaders and burning Nationalist literature. Chinese were warned future possession of such things would be considered "incriminat ing."
