It was in 1932 that Evseeff saw the
first of the fighting which has been,:
going on ever since near the border.
Chipese resistance to the Japanese in-
vasion of Manchuria was strongest
at Harbin. The city was held in a
state of siege for a period of about
two weeks. The streets of the city
were used as battlegrounds and the
daner from air-attacks wasK so severe
that the citizens were forced to re-
main indoors, in spite of the short-
age of food.
Describes Siege Of Harbin
During the siege, Chinese com-
mandeered Russian city busses and
used them in attacking the en-
trenched Japanese at the outskirts of
the city. Machine guns were located
at every street corner, and an air-
plane was brought down in front of
a school of Chinese children. Several
hundreds of the children were killed
when shots fired on the aviators set
the plane afire and caused the bombs
to explode.
Such was the situation in 1936
when Evseeff left Harbin on a Stu-
dent's Visit to America. His people
who had been employes of the Trans-
Siberian Railway for generations,
readily consented to his trip and late
in August Evseeff landed in Seattle.
Hitch-Hikes To Michigan
In Seattle Evseeff and three friends
invested in a 1929 Buick-$80, the
major portion of their capital. It car-
ried them safely to Montana (only
difficulties-flat tires every few hours
and general engine trouble), but once
there broke down completely. So
they hitch-hiked.
Traveling by thumb for a young
man who spoke nothing but Russian,
knew nothing of the technique of
hitching rides and little of cars them-
selves was a harrowing ordeal. In
Harbin, the Russian picture of Amer-
ica is one in which the people are
rolling in wealth, every village has its
sky-scrapers, Chicago is filled with
gangsters, and the West still is
troubled with Indians.
Instead of gangsters, Evseeff found
a ride in Chicago with a Russian who
had fought in the revolution of 1917.

course covers a period of three years
and is much more general than the
specialized background required there
where one goes directly from high
school into medical school.
