The magnificent Shanghai civic
center, a special tarket of the Ja-
panese bombers, was perforated by
air bombs. A new group of classic
Chinese-style buildings, it had cost
$5,000,000 in gold to build.
I estimated that at least 30 Japan-
ese bombers formed the roving squad-
rons .that bombed an area approxi-
niately 15 miles square, all within
greater Shanghai itself but all out-
side the international areas.
Several Japanese shells fell near
the RCA-Victor factory while I was
watching. Every window was shat-
tered. I learned later that all Ameri-
ean employes of the plant were safe
but that it was feared many Chinese
workers had been killed.

as parlimentary law, courts, the bal-

He went on to state that man has
made great but unconscious progress
toward the ideal state, but at present
progress is stalled from lack of
techniques adequate for the situations
his progress has created.
