George Tsitovich. He is a Man who does no to talk about himself very much in fact i had talked with him Many times in the year i have known him. Of Only a few Days ago did i it Ain of one of the most Intel eating incidents of Hgt life in tile of Lent. La was Back in 1926 that George had an experience that i double any other Man on Sheppard Field has had he was arrested and thrown in jail by the japanese intelligence be v ice he was picked up in Koba Japan and put in the a a Clink about 8 of clock at night. His loom was the last Wold in simplicity four Walls a floor and a ceiling. There he was held incommunicado until three or four of clock the next morning when he was taken out for questioning. After much questioning he was told in ii very ceremonial manner that it is Only human to err and that they had done so in arresting him. They then offered to get him a hotel room or if he preferred they tested he could spend the jest of the night there in the jail. To their Surprise he said he would do just that. It must have amused and pleased them for they laughed heartily and gave him a bunk for the rest of the night Georges biggest complaint is that they made him pay two dollars tor the ride in a Rickshaw to the jail and at that time he protested violently but to no Avail. George was born of russian parents in Northern China or Manchuria now Japan a puppet state of Manchukuo. And lived in Russia Southern Siberia and Mongolia until he decided to come to the a land of he a at first hand the bolshevism revolution during the first world War.
