Chinese Defense Of Vital
Holds UpAgainst Attack
SHANGHAI, Nov. 7.-(Sunday)-
(/P)-Two divisions of China's crack
combat troops were rushed to the
Sungyin sector today to protect the
vital Shanghai-Nanking communica-
tion line' from a Japanese flying col-
umn thrusting inland from the south.
The Chinese were reported making
good progress against the invaders
and the immediate threat to the Chi-
nese right flank at Shanghai was be-
lieved to have been averted.r
The new Japanese column sweep-
ing in from the seacoast south of
Shanghai struck at the Chinese flank
with a quick margin from Hangchow
A Japanese spokesman said last
night the column, newly landed from
transports and fighting "every inch
of the way," pushed the Chinese lines
back 18 miles to the south bank of
the Whangpoo River.
Chinese sources admitted 3,000
Japanese had poured in from the sea
and met stiff Chinese resistance at
Sungyin near Sungkiang, important
Chinese defense point 20 miles south-
west of Shanghai.
Foreign observers estimated that
8,000 forced the landing on the Hang-
chow shore, approximately 30 miles
south of Shanghai. Chinese de-
clared more Japanese transports were
in the bay to put reinforcements
The new drive aimed at encircling
Shanghai by crushing the Chinese
right flank. The swift landing was
effected under the protection of a
combined aerial and naval attack de-
spite adverse weather and tides.
As the strategic maneuver de-
veloped, Chinese troops already were
reported withdrawing from Pootung,
the industrial section across the
Whangpoo from Shanghai. Should
the column's thrust reach the main
Shanghai battleline the Pootung
units would be cut off.

There were 28 cases of pneumonia
during the last two months as com-
pared with seven in 1936 and 19 in
1935, the report showed. One student
died from pneumonia last month, the
first fatality in several years.
Appendicitis cases also increased in
number, but there were fewer hos-
pitalized patients during this period,
the report said.

COMMUNITY FUND INCREASES
Reports of the Ann Arbor Com-
munity Fund drive indicated yester-
day that contributions were nearing
the halfway mark in the attempt to
solicit $53,110 for the support of com-
munity agencies. Over $15,000, more
than one-fourth of the total sought,
had been raised by Friday afternoon.
Spreading death and destruction, Japanese air bombs burst in Chapei as this picture was taken. The force
of the explosion can be noted by the debris hurled high into the air, as the bombs find their marks in the
densely populated native section of the long-harras sed Chinese city. This picture was rushed to the United
States aboard a trans-Pacific clipper plane.

in keeping the price up and increas-
