Shanghai Raid
Is Countered
WithArtillery
(Continued from Page l
west side at the time, observed the
half-hour raid from an apartment
house near the bombarded section.
When the swftly finished job was
done he saw a squadron of eight bom-
bers disappear eastward over the
French settlement.
They passed back over Pootung, ap-
parently toward bases aboard air-
craft carriers in Chinese waters or
ashore in Formosa or Japan.
The bombardment broke a brief re-
spite after day-long firing from Ja-
panese warships and Japanese aerial
bombings that, had caused terrific
damage, especially along the water-
front, and had rained explosives on
crowded Chinese native quarters in
Yangtzepoo, Chapei and Kiangwang.
Japanese land forces, largely ma-
rines and blue jackets, were reported
yielding ground steadily to a Chinese
army that outnumbered them about
four to one.
Main Line Pushed Up j
Chinese commanders asserted that
their main line had been pushed for-
ward to within a mile of the Whang-
poo river-front and that the Japanese
were losing ground in the Hongkew
and Yangtzepoo areas in northeastern
Shanghai as well as in Chapei to the
north.
The Chinese lines stretched from
the northwestern edge of the Inter-
national Settlement along the rail-
road, through the north station and
then curved around the Japanese
Hongkew positions toward Whang-
Poo.
The Japanese fought with their
backs to the river and the Interna-
tional areas.
Rumors that the Chinese intended
to push the Japanese back through
"French Town" in order to strike
with another force from the rear
were denied by Chinese officers.
Shanghai's Mayor O.K. Yui promised
that the Chinese would not pursue a
retreat through the settlement. He
said he had British assurance such a
retreat would not be permitted.
The Japanese headquarters, Yui
declared, are completely encircled.
He admitted that a small Japanese
force succeeded in landing on the
Pootung side of the Whangpoo but
declared it would be of little value.
Japanese Marines Land
An undetermined number of Ja-
panese marines landed at the Japan-
ese-owned wayside wharves about
two miles below the Japanese con-
sulate. Unconfirmed reports said the
reinforcements numbered s e v e r a 1
thousand men, brought from Japan
on commercial transports under naval
convoy.
Casualties on both sides mounted
rapidly in the incessant fighting.
Chinese losses were believed far heav-
ier because China's forces have been
on the offensive.
Chinese troops ventured almost un-
der the muzzles of Japan's war fleet
to seize six abandoned Japanese
steamers off the French concession
and scuttle them above the elbow
of the Whangpoo River where it and
the Soochow Creek converge.
Vessels Under Fire
Picked companies rushed the ves-
sels and sailed them into position de-
spite broadside salvos protective
Chinese artillery shells screeched1
over their heads.
The barricade was submerged south
of where American refugees were
being evacuated northward to the
Dollar liner Persident McKinley by
tender down the Whangpoo.

Borah In New
Fight Against
Trusts' Power
WASHINGTON, Aug. 18.-4A3)--
Senator Borah (Rep., Idaho) chal-
lenged President Roosevelt today to
organize a campaign against monop-
oly.
The President, Borah said, could
use his "tremendous power" to start
"the greatest crusade since the Amer-
ican Revolution."
Borah told the Senate that social
legislation such as housing reform
and wage and hour revision would be
"largely fruitless" in alleviating eco-
riomic ills unless monopolies are de-
stroyed.
Monopoly, Borah contended, is "an
evil which cannot be controlled; it
can only be destroyed."
Private interests, Borah charged,
have power to fix prices on "every-
thing that goes into the stomach or
on the backs of the people of the
United States."
The trusts, he said, contribute to
the support of both major political
parties.

LATEST TREASURY DEFICIT
WASHINGTON, Aug. 18.-(/P)-The
Treasury rounded out the first month
and a half of this fiscal year with ai
$292,558,037 deficit. A treasury re-i
port today showed this compared'
with a $220,975,273 excess of expen-1
ditures in the corresponding period aI
year ago.

But for the girls themselves, most
of them under 20, it means a week of
high adventure-to be capped maybe
by the title and even by a movie con-
tract.
Just Sign The Check
Most of the entrants come from
poor families. In their home towns,
they were picked in district contests1
arranged by theatrical men. This
trip is the high spot, often, in their
young lives.
Department stores at home dress
them up like Easter bunnies. They
are provided with round-trip tickets.
In Atlantic City they merely have to
sign the check. For one week, the
Cinderella girls live at swanky hotels,
eat multi-course dinners, and ignore
the ticket takers.
But the dream doesn't last, even in
Atlantic City.
For six days and nights, elimina-
tion contests continue, with a rigid
routine of pageant events. When
it's all over, the girls who board trains
once more for the hinterland, are
really tired.
Business Propositiony
The pageants began in 1921 when
a merchant decided it would be good
fun, and good business, to have At-
Inatic City pick the country's pre-
mier bathing beauty.
It was a publicity bonanza for At-
lantic City-so good that it was im-
itated. Officials here are forever say-
ing that all other national beauty
contests merely imitate the pageant
that started here. Six years after
they started, the contests were dis-
continued because of charges that

ways are good for a laugh. In 1921
Margaret Gorman wore a bathing suit
longer and bulkier than dresses girls
wore on the street five years later.
The first bobbed-haired winner did
not appear until 1925-she was Fay
Lamphier of Los Angeles. The shirt-
and-shorts bathing suit made its de-
but on Lois Delander of Joliet, Ill.,
in 1927.
After the intermission, Henrietta
Leaver, of Pittsburgh was crowned
in 1935-in a suit so brief Miss De-
lander would have been shocked.

uated to 831.
(State Department reports to
Washington said about 1,600 or 1,700
American citizens will be evacuated
in all, leaving approximately 2,000
in Shanghai.)
Refugees Lives Imperilled
The refugees' lives were imperilled
several times by the deliberate fire
of Chinese shore snipers. Panic-strick-
en, the Americans flopped to the deck
while bullets whistled in the rigging
above them, despite assurances of a
United States Marine guard that
made the round trip.
An Associated Press correspondent,
arriving aboard the President Mc-
Kinley, counted more than 50 Japan-
ese warships in the 50 miles from
the China sea to Shanghai up the
Yangtze and Whangpoo rivers.
They included an airplane carrier
and four battleships, besides cruisers,
destroyers and innumerable gun-
boats. Most of the ships kept mov-
ing and all the gunboats were -cleared
for action.
Hunger and fear among homeless
natives created an increasing menace
apart from the danger of shells and
bombs.
American Refugees
Aided By Red Cross
WASHINGTON, Aug. 18.-(IP)-The
American Red Cross allotted an ad-
ditional $20,000 tonight for use among
American refugees from war-torn
China.
The funds went to the Philippines
Red Cross for relief of penniless
Americans. Paul McNutt, governor-
general of the Philippines, had de-
clared that local funds would be in-
adequate to care for thousands ar-
riving in Manila from Shanghai.
Two weeks ago, the Red Cross sent
$10,000 to the American ambassador
in China for expenditure among refu-
gees at his discretion.
