that nothing could prevent the dis-
order from sweeping into the Hong-

Fighting and Chapei thus far were
placed at 1,000 in an oficial an-

600 of these were killed and the
rest wounded. Most of the casual-
ties resulted from bombing by Jap-
anese airplanes, the statement said.

By their own statement the Jap-

ed and the fire was still spreading
unchecked.
Since a bomb from a Japanese
plane started the first blaze Thurs-
day night, efforts to check its ad-
vance have been impossible and
the district tonight was an inferno
roaring a serious threat to all of
Shanghai. f
Should the wind sweep the flames
to the south it was possible a wall
of fire half a mile long would ad-
vance upon the international set-
tlement and it seemed unlikely that
the settlement fire department
could combat it.
