CHINESE MOVIE STAR LIVES IN TERROR : FEARS
HORRIBLE DEATH AT HANDS OF TONGS
Lin Neong, only Chinese movie star
shown in two scenes from one of her
San Francisco. Cal. While Lin
Neong (Mrs. Sadie H. Hing), first and
only Chinese motion picture actress
in the world, is playing the leading
part in a moving picture melodrama,
she is also playing a real dramatic
role in her own life.
Lin, who is separated from her hus
band, a cook in the notorious China
town here, tells heartbreaking tales
of brutal treatment at the hands of
her ex-husband, who would fre
quently beat her into insensibility.
The young girl's body bears many
scars as the result of his- cruelty.
Each day as Miss Neong appears
before the movie man, she trembles
for fear her former husband will ap
pear on the scene with a company of
highbinders. She lives in mortal
dread for fear she will be the victim
of the tong men.
