'Escapees return to Camp'

"Photo from 'Chinese Escapade' (1949) by Laurence Tipton, p. 232. The Chinese man third from the left, in between Hummel and Tipton, is Zhang Xingtai, night soil coolie, who did such a sterling job in bringing secret messages into CAC Weihsien. The same picture appears on p.39 of 'Flying Peace', the commemorative book given to those of us who attended the 60th Anniversary of the Liberation of Weihsien Camp, 17 August, 2005. In that reproduction, he is identified. Zhang Xingtai was in fact performing the same role in Ledao Yuan prior to 1943, being listed amongst the staff of the Ledao Yuan Presbyterian Chinese Bible School. "
