struck Robert Veneman in the face
with a heavy flashlight and that a
second trooper stamped with heavy
shoes on the bare foot of another of
the bandits, who had removed his
shoes to thaw out his frozen toes.

Once stately Chinese sat puffing
at their little brass-bowled pipes
over a quaint game of chess or sol-
emnly drank wine from their little
jade cups. Now all of China's an-
cient glory that was has been shat-
tered, and only memories remain.
Cold, deserted, waiting apparently

things of the past, so the pieces had
to be rearranged and one of the
chairs in each group left out, says

hard and with a deep red grain, was

finished their chairs and tables with
marble seats and tops. On the Can-

set of red and white ivory chessmen,
remembered by many who saw them

Language Building. They stand on a
board of Chinese plan, with the
