FfttJDAY EVENING, JUNE 5, 1936. THE PAMPA bAILY NEWS, Patnpa, Texas PAGE tttftl NATION PREPARES TO fcESIST JAPAN'S ENCROACHMENT SHANGHAI, June 5. f/P)—Chi- nese, reports from Hsinhsiang, Honan. province, today said seven Chinese, spies In the pay of Japan had been caught and summarily executed. The spies were shot. Their execution, It was indicated, was part of a national campaign to prepare for resistance against further Japanese encroachment—the first such made since china, became a republic. Chinese sources charged Japan, if waj: Comes, plans to organize native bandits against the government, pfovi'ding the outlaws with arms, food, clothing and narcotics, ""ttils theory gave point to Chinese' "plans for the protection of cities against bandits roaming the rural districts. The Chinese said Japanese- preparations for entry into Honan pro- vipce, through the establishment of opium and arms traffic and the supplying of bandits with narcotics, wo.re true to precedent. Both civilians and officials were receiving training for military serv- ijbe under the leadership of 'Chiang Kai-Shek, the 'Nanking dictator, ajul the, government took steps to !}«!, prepared in' the matter of- airplanes. These, officials believed, would play, a major role in China's defenses. : New airfields were ordered built to. accommodate ever-increasing numbers of American-built machines. These and other military preparations were going on in the Yellow river region and were well known to the Japanese, whose representatives, were constantly entering and leaving the area. The new air bases reach as far north as Changte, in northern Honan province, where new steel and cement barracks also were constructed recently. As Honan province undoubtedly would become an important battlefield in the event of war, a great sweeping circle of fortifications, dugouts, machine gun emplacements and bombproof shelters has been built, running from Kaifeng west to Loyang, thence north to Tsinyang, Hsinhsiang and Changte. Blockhouses, trenches, machine gun platforms and "pillboxes" have been built at strategic points along the Pelping-Hankow railway and the Lunghai-Tungkwan railway, which form part of China's main line of defense. "A grim aspect of this national preparedness is the fact that countless "pillbox" fortifications have been erected in cemeteries. Their death dealing aspect is lost in the midst of a forest of mounds and graves. Irion foundries in Hsinhsiang are working full time making iron beams and doors for the cement dugouts. A train of 16 carloads of reinforcing irpn bars, valued at 100,000 Shanghai dollars, recently was seen there. Everywhere China's peacetime factories are operating full blast, running out the sinews of war. All important towns are building brick blockhouses, the walls of country towns are being repaired and city moats are being deepened. These measures not only will strengthen China's defenses against Japan, but will enable military authorities to deal with any possible local uprising. Aunt Will Keep - F.

The Kuomintang (nationalist party;, southwest executive committee and southwest political council ordered troops to march northward to resist "Japanese aggression." The declaration was considered an attempt to' force a united Chinese front against Japan by a coalK tion of the Canton and Nanking (North) governments. The war declaration and public bodies earlier, had addressed petitions to the southwest political council demanding troops be sent against the Japanese. The demands, it was believed, were inspired by leaders of the two provinces of the Canton government—Gen, Chan Chai-Tong, leader of Kwangtung forces and Li Chung- Jen, Kwangsl leader. • • • • An armed march against Japan for her alleged promotion of an autonomy movement in Fukien province, northeast of the Canton provinces, was reported by Japanese sources several days ago. Dispatches then related contradicr tory incidents involving aggression against Japan and civil war between Nanking and Canton. Later advices, however, held the South China crisis as a political dispute between Canton government leaders. The principals in the controversy, authoritative sources said were Chancellor Chow Lu of Canton national university and Pel Chung- Hal, Kwangsi warlord. —: : •••—: SENTENCED TO DIE NEW YORK, June, 5.

HOME TALENT ONLY TO ENTERTAIN ON SAWDUST GAINESVILLE, June 5 f/P)—Busi- ness was at a standstill in this north Texas city today as residents prepared for the world's most unusual circus tonight. It wasn't excitement which caused the cessation of commnrcial activity, but work, for Gainesville's annual municipal circus is composed of home talent only. Clerks, business men, housewives, stenographers, and public officials change to bareback riders, snake charmers, and trapeze artists in the flicker of an eye, and spectators sny they are good enough to be in the big time. J. Norman McCardlc will doff boots and chaps of his occupation as a cattleman for a top hat and the tails of a ringmaster. County Judge Ray Winder let commissioners' court meet without him today while he mixed grease paint and tried on his new clown suit. Deputy Sheriff Tom Hickman was a little more true to his profession when he practiced his fancy shooting act. Gainesville began its circus in 1930 when the smell of sawdust permanently ruined the theatrical ambitions of an amateur dramatic organization. The first circus wa.s a burlesque, then performers decided it was just as easy to be good as bad and proceeded to be good. From one ring to three the show grew and now its acts run the gamut of thrills. Performers do their dally work, motor, to tho big top and change into, costumes after u hasty meal. When the show is concluded they return home, and practice acts on backyard rigging. Every year the circus makes a tour of nearby Texas and Oklahoma towns. Performers follow the same procedure, living at home and motoring to cities where the tents have been erected for th& show. ' ' -.if*n« qualifications for membership «« only two — permanent residence afil Gainesville and -no. pnofesskaial efe perience. The only recornpense<i» performers is the applause- they gailu Arrangements had- been made today to broadcast over a.
