were dinner gudsts at Belk's Sunday
I was sorry to learn of the death
ol my friend, George Short. I talked
to him on the streets the fourth,
then death called him away the
next day. Oh, well. In the midst at
life we are dying.

China, what a country it must

China la tods^r suffering acutely
from what Mr. Churchill called the
disease of war. To begin with, there
la physical deterioration. I have lived
to eee floods, famines, and refugees
in times past, but nothing Uke
Chins. They havent had enough So
eat, no never. They are anemic, that
is what the doctors call H, Full of

and the Ysngtas River valley which

than the Mississippi River
valley is to ua. Although this made
It lmpoelble to get food and sulphur

They fight and starve right on.
