CHINESE DESERTERS FOND WITH REFFUGEES IN U.S. NANKING CAMP
[Copyright: 1938 : By the New York Times.]
SHANGHAI, Jan. 3.— American professors remaining at foreign members of the refugee welfare committee were seriously embarrassed to discover that they had been harboring a deserting Chinese army colonel and six of his subordinate officers.
The Chinese officers, who had doffed their uniforms during the Chinese retreat from Nanking, were discovered living in one of the college buildings. They confessed their identity after Japanese army searchers found they had hidden six rifles, five revolvers and a dismounted machine gun and ammunition in the building.
The deserters confessed looting in Nanking and also that one night they dragged girls from the refugee camp into the darkness and the next day blamed Japanese soldiers for the attacks. The ex-officers were arrested under martial law and probably will be executed.
