her beautiful Christian character.
Therefore, the Woman's Mis

First, That we wish to express

the death of our beloved sister
and co-worker in Christ.
Second, That we also wish to j

beautiful Christian life which im- 1
pressed itself upon all those with
whom she came in contact.
Third, That we desire to extend
our sympathy to the members of
her family and friends, and com

to save to the uttermost.

resolutions be sent fb the family,

Chinese Commander Says
Series of Attacks
Is Effectual
United Press Staff Correspondent
SHANGHAI, Oct. 11. (UP) —
! General Chang Fa-kwei, China s
famed "Ironsides" commander.
, claimed the greatest victory of
the Chinese-Japanese war today,
asserting that he had virtually
wiped out the Japanese 101st di
vision from Tokyo in a series of
smashing counter attacks on the
Xanchang front southeast of Han
Chane Fa-kwei, whose Canton
ese divisions have been holding up
the Japanese drive on Nanchang
i for more than a month, said that
he hfcd counter-attacked suddenly
all along the front south of Tehan
early yesterday and entrapped the
Japanese who were worn out from
I weeks of continuous fighting.
(Foreign military attaches
watching the Japanese drive on
! Hankow have reported repeatedly
j that the Tokyo 101st division,1
composed of second line reserv
1 ists, was performing badly and
I was likely to collapse if attacked
! by superior numbers.)
Chang placed the number of
j Japanese killed at 20,000 but this
' figure was believed greatly exag
I gerated. < . ■ .
j The battle, important as it was,
1 was more than offset, however, by
a series of Japanese, victories
which brought spearheads of the
Imperial armies closer to the vital
Hankow-Canton munitions railway
and made it almost certain that
the Japanese wiH take the vital
Wu-han (Wuchang. Hankow and
Hanyang) area—traditional mili
tary heart of China—by the end
of this month.
The Japanese had consolidated
their occupation of Sinyang, on
, the Peiping-Hankow railway 100
' miles north of Hankow, and were
fanning out through the moun
tains on a southward driv^ to
