1 minute read

Eight college-educated young Chinawomen, serious, zealous, patriotic, paraded solemnly down the bund or riverside at Hankow, Nationalist capital, last week.

Emancipate yourselves!

We Have Won Freedom From

Win Freedom for China From

The Christian Powers!

Occidentals thought that Chiang Kaishek, who impeached the entire so-called “Red” Government of Hankow, last week (see below), will do his best to discourage further extremism among Chinese students.
