Signs of Red activity in Ktangsl ap
peared about a week ago, when 40,000
armed Communists were reported mov

Red forces a few weeks previously had
' looted and burned a large section of
Changsha, Hunan capital.
Defense trenches were hurriedly
thrown up about Nanchang when fears
arose that the 40.000 Reds would attack |
the capital. There were but 2,000 j
troops available for its defense. Ameri- j
can and British residents were said to
be anxious to leave Changsha in the
face of a continued Red menace, but
could not do so because the low level
of the Siang River had prevented boats
from reaching the city. The river of-

Capital City Team Now Even With Waverly Club in
Series of Four Matches. -
Although the word "acolyte” can
legitimately mean "a novice,” it can
not, by any stretch of Websterian in
dulgence, be spelled in novice manner.
Tnls Inescapable little fact settled the
issue of an old-fashioned spelling bee
last night between the Waverly Spelling
Club of Baltimore and the Capital City
Spelling Club of Washington.
With two matches divided, Washing
ton having won the first tilt and Balti
more the second, the outcome of the
decisive third match hinged upon the
correct spelling of the word “acolyte.”
Miss Elizabeth Dulin, the last sur
vivor of the local team, confronted by
three word-minded Baltimoreans, tripped
over the last syllable, spelling the word
with an “i.” A moment later Francis
E. Old, Jr., supported by Edw'ard L.
Koontz and Carroll A. Royer, spelled the
word correctly.
A silver cup, contributed by the local
team, was awarded the Baltimore club.
The contests, held twice a year for the
past two years, are now all square,
Washington having won both of the
1929 events and Baltimore having coun
tered with two victories this year.
Dr. Oeorge B. Woods, dean of Ameri
can University, presented the list of
contested words, while the contest was
fers virtually the only route of trans
portation to Yangtse ports.
Reds above Hankow yesterday at
tacked the United States gunboat
Panay, which was on patrol near
Yochow. The Reds fired with trench
I mortars from behind dikes, but the
: Panay silenced them with 3-inch guns.
| There were no casualties aboard.
Communists between Kiukiang and
Hankow continue their indiscriminate
firing upon passing boats regardless of
nationality. This has resulted in sev
eral engagements with foreign and
Chinese gunboats.
Judged by Mrs. Rita Morris. K. W.
Krause and William H. McCormick.
The contests will be resumed next
April and October.

A man attempting to break into the
home of R. D. Lindsey, 1303 G street,
North Woodside, Md., was shot at three
times by a neighbor last night, one of
the charges, which were fired from a
repeating shotgun, taking effect. Al
though the marauder staggered and
screamed when struck, he escaped
through the woods nearby.

neighbor living directly across the street
from the Lindsey home, called police
