Eight Missionaries Escape and Tell
of Pillage. Looting and Murder
in Sinvangchow.
By tlic A-xK-iated Pp^*?.
HANKOW. China, February "3. |
Eight American missionaries reached!
Hankow yesterday from Kinyang- J
chow, 125 miles north of Hankow. !
where a group of Americans has been ;
under the Are of the contending Chi- j
nese armies. They tell a grim story j
of pillage, looting and murder in con- i
nectioti with the strife of Marshal VTu !
Pei Fu’s Hupeh army and the Kuo- j
minehun, or national army, which j
supports the Peking regime.
Other members of the Sinvangchow j
American community, which totaled j
31. have been moved from the danger |
zone and are now at Chikungshan. C.
C. Skinness remained in Sinyang- j
chow to care for wounded Chinese, j
while H. M. Xesse also is still there. I
too ill to be moved.
Those who reached Hankow say
that large numbers of the civilian
population of the district have been
murdered by the soldiers. The troops j
have confiscated much of the food j
supply, and many civilians arc dying j
of starvation.
One American mother escaped from •
Sinyangehow only after she had lived
in a coal bin for three days with her i
three small children without water, j

Reproduction of Mt. Vernon
Spirit, With Carmela Pon
selle Singing, Draws 1.000.
A distinguished audience of 1,000 j
persons filled the auditorium of the ,
new gymnasium of George Washing- ,
ton University last night, when one
of the most delightful programs cele
brating the anniversary of the birth
day of George Washington was pre
sented for the ltenelit of the univer
sity hospital. The entire building was
draped and wreathed. A charming
reproduction of the Nellie Custis mu
sic room at Mount Vernon was erected
on the small st;ige at one end. All
the furniture was loaned from the
home of Mrs. Charles \V. Richardson,
who took great pains to see that even
the smallest detail suggested the cor
rect atmosphere for a musical eve
ning at Mount Vernon in the time of
the Father of Our Country. Mrs.
Eugene Byrnes, in charge of the pro
gram, presided charmingly. She !
wore an exquisite gown of pink silk, 1
with old lace bertha, and pink roses I
in her white wig. With her was Mrs. j
Frederick Farrington, similarly garbed j
in green, with cunning side curls in :
the quaint fashion of the days of |
daguerreotypes, suggesting Nellie j
Custis. Edward Green, of the White j
House staff, added a. tine note of color i
as the butler. The room, though a |
single concession had to be made for j
the grand piano in one corner, other- j
wise suggested the eighteenth century j
in every detail from the flute, said to i
!>e a favorite instrument of George

Which of These Four Skin
Enemies Destroys Your Beauty?
Here are four common skin troubles which seri
ously mar a woman’s appearance and very often in
jure her popularity. Yet now’ each one of these ob
jectionable skin conditions can, in almost every case,
be banished—easily, quickly and forever!
There’s no excuse for ugly skin
r.ow. For an easy, pleasant way has
been found to acquire a clear, soft,
fine-textured, beautiful skin. Prac- j
tieally every family in Baltimore to-!
day uses this scientific way to skin j
health and beauty. Thousands of!
women in Philadelphia and Wash- j
ington call this a “Miracle Cream,” j
so wonderful have results been from
using it. Doctors and beauty ex
perts by the score praise and recom
mend it. Over 870,000 jars were
used last year alone!

The featured singer of the evening
was Carmela Ponselle, one of the two
well known sisters now' with the Met
ropolitan Opera Company in New
Votk. Rosa was heard here in a
morlnlng musical earlier in the 'year.
Carmela Ponselle has not sung here
for about three years. Since her re
vital at that time she has gained
wonderfully in style and diction. Hei
tonal colorings of her songs and her
phrasing have improved, and her easy
graciousness was a marked asset it
her success last night. She wore «
costume of the period made in a gor
genus red shade, with a deep lace
bertha and a row of tiny black bows
down the middle of the front. Her
wig was a bobbed-haired white one
which gave a unique touch. Mis.-
Ponselle was at her best in the old
songs of the period, Pergolesi’s “St
tu m'ami,” Durante’s “Danza, danzu
and the dramatic “Soml Dei'’ of Han
del. The “Hymn au Holed,” by
Georges, also in this group, though
out of the period, was beautifully
sung even if it was out of the his
tnricul picture. Miss Ponselle sang
the “O Don Fatale," from Verdi’s
“Don Carlos,” and it received heartj
applause, for it was sung with all th<
verve and color possible. Her two
more modern encores in English, “The
Lilac Tree" and “Carry Me Back tc
Old Vlrginny.” were sung with clear
enunciation and careful phrasing and
received enthusiastically.

In her second group Miss Ponselle
sang Relehardt’s “In Time of Roses.”
Mozart’s “Wnrnung” and Hopkin
son’s “O’er the 11111s,’’ nil of the
period. Francis Hopkinson. writer of
the last-mentioned song, was also a
signer of the Declaration of Inde
pendence and writer of the famous
natriotic song, “Hail, Columbia!”
"O’er the Hills'’ was said to he a
favorite song of Gen. Washington’s
and was in a book of songs dedicated
to him by Mr. Hopkinson. It was
one of the most delightful numbers,
both musically and from point of
view of interpretation, on the pro
gram. Higgins’ “My Lovely Celia”

also was In this group. The mixture
of encores included "Cornin’ Through
the Rye,” “O Sole Mlo” (sung In a
wondrously high range and fortissi
mo), “Daddy’s Sweetheart,” “Home,
Sweet Home” and "Good Night,
Ladies” (without accompaniment).
Miss Ponselle received an ovation
both before her first group and at the
end of her last group, as well as a
huge basket of flowers. Willard
Sektberg, who looked quite resplend
ent in his colonial costume, was a
marvelous accompanist for Miss Pon
The real high-light musically of
»he evening was the playing of Boc
cherinis familiar “Alinuet,” the en
core to the numbers by the National
String Quartet, that fine local chamber
music ensemble composed of Henri
Sokolov and Max Pugatsky. violinists;
Samuel Feldman, viola player, and
Richard lajrleberg, cellist, it was a
beautiful musical moment. The quar
tet though somewhat disguished in
iheir wigs and gay costumes played
true to form in this number. They al
so played the same composer s alle
gretto and minuet from the "Quin
tet for Strings and Flute,” with J. Ar
caro, flutist, added to their numbers,
very well. The flute was beautifully
blendld in with the strings. Mar
tini’s “Quartet for Strings. Spirit of
the Eighteenth Century,” was an
other lovely number well performed.
Other Numbers Please*. *
Mr. ArciSo came into his own in
the obbligato, "Under the Weeping
Willow,” another of Mr. Hopkinson’s
songs, which would well bear culti
vation by other singers on regular
concert programs. This number was
feature of the last group of the
Tuesday Evening Class' "Singing
Class” groups of old rounds and glees
and a few songs of the period with
which the program was opened and
closed. The class sang their num
