Abilene Reporter News (Newspaper) - May 31, 1938, Abilene, Texas WIST TEXAS' NEWSPAPER VOL. LV III/ NO. 4 Ammu** Presa <AP> Chinese Mass Million Menlo Halt Jap Drive Chiang Directs Attacks On Gen. 1 Doihara's Force By United Press China massed a million men along the northern front today in an effort to break the Japanese drive on Hankow. Risking destruction of the finest Chinese troops, Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek personally directed counter-attacks along the Lunghai railroad and the Yellow river designed to wipe out the trapped Japanese column under Gen. Kenji Doihara and to turn back two other columns fighting their way to the rescue. Fighting was intense in the Lan-feng and Kaifeng sectors along the railroad which the invaders were attempting to follow to Hankow Outcome of the battle probably will go far toward determining the fate of the Chinese capital. Far to the south, there were indications that the Japanese were planning an attack on Canton, where four days-of aerial bombardment have cost close to 2.000 Chinese dead and 5.000 wounded. A change in the tactics of the raiding planes prompted some observers to believe they were piloted not by Japanese but European fliers.
