peace efforts in North China, had ac-
cepted "the issue of battle."
Formal declaration of war, a for-
eign office spokesman declared, is not
possible since the Kellogg pact (which
outlawed war as an instrument of pol-
icy) but he said the Naking govern
ment expected hostilities to spread to
Central and South China.
"It will not be the case of some
Chinese soldiers in North China fight-
ing the Japanese," he added. "Instead,
it will be all of China against Japan."
"There is no longer any hesitation
in China's foreign policy. Our efforts
toward peace have been exhausted.
With reluctance we accept the issue
to battle and once fighting begins we

Group Of Country Dance

English country dancing is a reviv'a,
of the 14th, 15th and 16th century
dances which have been discovered rn
old manuscripts. The dances are ti
type done by the peasants and wer
brought over to America by the early
settlers. Traces of these dances re-
main in the dancing done by the
people of the Kentucky Hills and in
the folk songs that accompany them.
The dances are constructed on
fundamental steps which have a defi-
nite order and on interludes between
the steps. Interesting figures arc
formed by the change of movement
in progressive lines to form set fig-
With the revival of this type of

Peiping awaits the rumored appearance of such troops as these to aid the Chinese 29th Army in the battle
against a heavy Japanese offensive. Above are shown the flower of the troops of the Nanking central gov-
ernment, Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek's own guards, who are German-trained and well equipped. Chiang
has been credited with a policy of meeting Japanese threats with diplomacy in order to get his crack war
machine in readiness for battle.
Waiting out a grim situation in China's frigid north country are
such soldiers as these, standing guard in rude trenches and protected
only with fur-lined helmets as opposed to the steel helmets which only
Chiang's own guards possess. At present they fight Japan alone, unsup-
ported either by the central government or by the powerful Chinese Red
army, standing by to follow Chiang if he feels ready for war.

of the victims is shown here as he received first aid treatment at a hos-

Taken By Genghis Khan,
Walled City Was Capital
For Tartars, Emperors
The ancient walled city of Peiping,
around which the armed forces of
China and Japan are fighting, was
the seat of the Imperial government
from 1409 to 1912, and of the Republic'
until 1928. It formerly was called
Long before the Tartar conquest of
China by the hordes of Genghis
Khan, who captured the city in 1215,
it was an important center. In 1264
Kublai Khan built the present Tar-
tar city. The third emperor of the
Ming dynasty settled there in 1409.
Through the ensuing centuries it
grew to a population of more than 1,-
500,000 but, after the capital was re-
moved in 1928 it dwindled to consid-
erably less than a million. The lat-
est census gave it 924,334.
Most foreign governments still
maintain embassies in Peiping but al-
so have offices in the new capital,
Peiping is surrounded by high walls
and protected by moats, encompass-
ing an area of about 25 square miles.
It is located in the province of Chi-
hli, now called Hopeh, and is about
70 miles southeast of the .Great Wall
built to protect ancient China from
The city is connected by railway

rail connections with Europe by
means of the great Siberian Railway.
It is the largest railway center in
China, three main trunk lines and
two branch lines starting from there.
It is divided into four parts, each
rectangular in shape. The Forbidden
City is in the center and was formerly
the residence of emperors. This cityI
is surrounded by the imperial city,!
which in its turn is enclosed by the
Tartar city, outside and to the south
of which is the Chinese city, in which
are some of the oldest shops, restaur-
ants and theaters in China.
Famous landmarks of Peiping are
the Coal Hill, North Lake Park,
Temple of Heaven (in the Chinese
City,) Temple of Confucius and the
In the south part of the Tartar city
lies the legation quarter within its
own walls and with its own guards.
