MODERN CHINA IS INVINCIBLE
Jap Invasion Can Never Stop Progress

Strafing,

Bombing, Good Combination

By CLAIRE SHERMAN -
"dapan can't conquer China, now
or ever, it's' too big a job," William
Booth, missionary to China for more
than 35 years, said yesterday.
"All that the Japanese are doing
is hindering China's progress," he
added.
"In 1934, after the seiztre of
Manchuria,; I heard of very prom-
inent Japanese statesmen who said
'China, is progressing so rapidly if
we hadn't struck when we did it-
would have been too late'," he re-
lated, "but it was already too late.
The Chinese can never be beaten."
Mr. Booth, who is now working at
International Industries, served as
teacher, president and dean of an
Anglo-Chinese school, Yih Wen Com-
mercial College, in Chefoo, Shantung,
North China. He returned to the
States on, the Gripsholm in the
prisoner exchange last August.
"How did I fare when Japan at-
tacked Pearl Harbor?" he said. "It
happened that on December 6 I
boarded' a Japanese freighter' for
Tsingtao, a day's journeygsouth'from
Chefoo, to attend our Mission mid-
winter Executive Committee Meeting
there.
"I was arrested immediately on
"Since I believe in Christian friend-
liness and ~courtesy, although I was
opposed to the Japanese, I mingled:
with them as a friend while on board'
that steamer.' I slept in 'third class'
Alongside a Japanese gendarme, and
Ate Japanese food with a German
business man," he said.

.'.

"The result of this was, that
after being examined, first in the
military police station and then
at the Japanese Naval Headquar-
ters, I was made only a 'house
prisoner' and had-, three hours
liberty to go o nthe street each'
day.
Those; who were interned had no
liberty and were put in 'solitary con,
finement for small indiscretions., The
Japanese supplied them with heat
and water, but, they had to depend
,on their friends for food, he said.
"However, if I had attempted to
return to Chefoo," 'he added, "I
would not have fared so well."
"One of the moSt lniprtant
things to remember about China,"
he said, "is the great respect the
Chinese have-for Chiang Kai Shek.
When the Generalissimo was held'
by the Communists; in Sian?Fu in
1936, I was in Kobe, Japan.
"While there' I went in a 'Chinese
barbershop, and asked the men what
chance, they thought Chiang Kai
Shek had to. be released. They, said t
simply that Chiang kai Shek was
destined not,..to die, and would be re-
leased. That is the way all China feels
about: her Generalissimo.".
"He is the one man who has'
come closest to uniting Chia and
if, the Japanese had, note attacked
her, she would be wholly united
today," Mr. Booth added.
"All that the Chinese need, to whip
Japan is equipment 'and:training.
Once the' Allies can concentrate on
the war in the east and can bomb
Tokyo, the war will soon be over.

"The common Japanese all believe
that the Emperor is god, but the in-
tellects and high officials do not,
and they are 'the ones who will de-
cide the surrender," he pointed out.
"The Chinese are allowed to have
only long-wave radios," he said,
"but I know of at, least one in'-
stance where flashlight cells sub-
metged if" acid and connected to
an electrical beam are used to get
short-waves.
"This is just one way in which the
underground movement is operating
-in occupied China," he concluded.

Surgical Unit
Needs Coeds
"We would like every woman on
campus to give at least two hoursof
her time each week to making Surgi-
cal dressings," Jean Whittemore, '44,
chairman, said yesterday.
The first week a total of 35 women
attended the unit; this week only 23.
"We need many more workers and
instructors," she stated, "if we are to
meet our quota.""
Making surgical dressings requires
absolute accuracy. No one sees the
finished products from the time they
leave the workroom, where they are
inspected and shipped, until they are
sterilized by the doctor at the base
hospital just prior to their use.
As a result care must be taken that
no small threads, hairs, or lint which
might couse irritation or infection
are present in the dressings. "At the
front, the doctors and nurses will be
too busy to inspect the dressings be-
fore using them.
"There may be one doctor working
frantically against time at the base
hospital or it may be the last dressing
before the new shipment arrives. The
responsibility is on us to help by
lightening their burden," said Mrs.
Bradley Patten, chairman of surgical,
dressings for Washtenaw County, re-
cently.
