they are doing sewing, typing and
fcespital work. The law went into ef

Those who have refused to obey
argue that they ar? either under or
above the stipulated ages, or that

is one of th? excuses allowed. Those

wealthiest families and their moth,

The law is typical of the rule of

141 INORF.DS OF THOUSANDS DIE
GIVEN AWAY AND BOYS
SOLD FOI* TWENTY TO THIR
Shanghai, China, June 1.?Six
million people, out of a population!
of twenty-seven million in the
province of Hunan are starving and
hundreds of thousands are certain to
die before midsummer, according to
estimates of mission workers there..
Literally thousands have fallen,
never to rise, in the fields and by
the roadsides. The bodies of the
dead are? stripped by the emaciated
survivors and the pitiful rags that
clothed the corpses sold for the
few brass coins they may bring with
which to buy a handful of rice.
One missionary of th? Augustini
an order, writing from Yuachow,
"This afternoon I called upon a
once prosperous family and found
them eating. Each had a bowl of
boiled grass and in each bowl weie
a few grains of rice. The rice in all
the bowls of the entire family would
not fill a full taJblespoon. It breaks
my heart to see this people dying
with no possible help, as the funds
we have received are sufficient only
to aid a very limited number."
In one part of the famine belt,
the last dreadful resort of the
starving, cannibalism, is being prac
ticed, according to Ma Ling Yi, for
mer minister of education at Peking.
Girl children are being given
away on the mere promise that they
will be fed and boys a re sold at
from twenty to thirty cents apiece.
