Transcript Volume 3, No. 6 Pearl Harbor, T. H. May 30, 1940 GOING ASIATIC! • • • CHINA BOUND!! SHANGHAI ( All that follows is from the clever " Sh: mghai - High Lights, Low Lights, Tael Lights". by Maurice Karns and Pat Patterson). the town. Quite a number of years ago, some­what before the Astor House was buil.;, Marco Polo came to China to establish trade routes. He came to the Orient with a purpose, accomplish­ed that purpose, and went home again. Marco was apparently the last for­eigner coming to China to do all of these three things. Since then" Americans and Euro­peans have been ar'riving in the Whangpoo City at a rate alarming to the Chinese. Most of them have come without definite purpose, many of them have carried out a purpose form­ed since their arrival, and most of them were carried away ( if away they got) on the same fortuitous tide that brought them to China. Around such a colony the nucleus of the for-eign settlement at Shanghai was built. And so there is small wonder that the most unique city in the world has developed here. The French Concession is owned and operated by the French, policed by the Annamites, lived in by the Russians, suspected by the Japanese, and v; sited by Amer: cans : n searc: l of a girl named Tamara, with blond braids who dances at St. George's. Frenchtown has a Municipal Coun­cil, but the Council has only advisory powers and France's head man can take or leave its advice. It is ru­mored about that there is a lot of gool advice gathering dust on the Rue de Consulat. The Chinese City, so called because it is run by the Chinese, is known as Nantao, and will probably be a dis­t'ppointment as a showplace to any­one outside of an enterprising sanita­tion eng: neer. A conscientious guide book says that much has been done to clean up the streets, " although much remains to be done," which is an under- under- statement. With few exceptions there is little to be een here except native life in the raw; the going and the smelling in Nantao gets a little tough. The bulk of the Russians living in Frenchtown are in extremely indigent circumstances, a large part of them leading virtually a hand- to- mouth ex­istence, with the hand sometimes fail­ing to reach the mouth.

There is a bit of good, sound phil­osophy in the following sign observed in a Chinese laundry: You want credit Me no give You get sore You want credit Me give You no pay Me get sore Better you get sore. - The " Brooklyn Bridge".
