The Nationalist government's ar
mies fought hard today to keep
the- rebel tide rolling from both
north and south toward central
After battling for a month to
halt the northern alliance rebels
driving through Honan and Shan
tung provinces toward its capital
t Nanking, the government was
called upon to meet the menace
from the south. Kwangsl prov
ince rebels and bandit hordes of
several provinces .advanced today
80,000 in number to attack the
Nationalists at their new base
south of Yochow, province of Hu
nan. Hurled yesterday from Chang
sha when the rebels overwhelmed
the city. 10.000 Nationalists re
treated northward to form de
fense lines with the large Tung
tink lake at their right and the
broad Tanktse river to their
Tear. The Nationalist govern
ment, realizing the gravity of this
rebel thrust at the tri-cities Han
jow, Wuchang and Hanyang, com
mercial and strategic centers of
China, ordered all available
troops mustered to halt the south
erners. Censorship Prevails
In Honan District
A veil of censorship appeared
to hang over military .operations
In Honan province, where a long
series of battles between . the
northern rebels and the National
ists was reported two days ago
going against the government
forces. Retreating then before
rebel attacks along the Haichow
Tungkwan railway, the National
ists were reported In a precarious
condition on the main battlefront
of China's civil war.
The northerners, having cross
ed the Yellow river into Shantung
province, approached Tainan to
day. The sound of the artillery
firing as they fought the Nation
alists was plainly heard In Tsinan.
The American consul was said to
.have urged Americans to leave
the city.
In Shanghai, Nationalists offi
cials met to strengthen the finan
cial sinews of war. Nearly two
weeks ago Finance Minister Soon
telegraphed President Chiang
Kai-Shek, leading the Nationalist
troop in Honan province, that a
speedy victory was imperative..
In addition to the civil war,
said Soon, the government had
been called upon to deal with na
tion wide communistic and bandit
depredations and economic dis
tress due to depreciated silver,
crop failures and paralysed busi
ness. These, he said, were com
bined In the gravest menace the
government had faced.

one who perfected the steam engine.
