has turned Christian and refuses to
bend to the will of a powerful Chinese
tong, the police of Fresno found It
necessary to make themselves guardlans

She first horrified her parents and
her countrymen by turning Christian.
Then she overthrew traditions of her
) race when she refused to marry the
man of her father's choice and insisted

Then Grace clashed with a big tong
when she caused the arrest of a Chinese
she caught robbing her apartment.
Tong emissaries threatened her
life and that of her sweetheart If she
continued prosecution of the alleged
burglar. ,
. She hurled defiance at the tong
when she took the witness stand and
gave testimony on which the Chinese
was held.
More threats have been made and
' now she is carefully guarded by the
police.
