Aug. brief, bloody, heroic battle within a battle was fought just north the Internationa! Settlement today. China but Japan lest with honor. A Japanese bombing plane plunged to earth in flames, half a mile north of Soochow Creek, which runs through the Set- tlement. Xobody saw a fight in the air and nobody saw the plane hit. but reliable Japanese sources said there was little doubt a Chinese plane shot it down in a fight so high that it could not be seen. The plane fell into the Chinese lines. The crew of two died in the crash, but 30 Japanese sailors rushed the Chinese lines in a gallant, futile effort to rescue their comrades. They were quickly surrounded by Chinese and almost wiped out. j Hundreds Slain, Homes Set Afire j In Aerial Raids on Nanking NANKING. China. Aug.
