"the Priest's shack" ---
- Most of the Catholic priests left Weihsien for Peking. Eleven of them stayed on to help the Weihsien internees and were lodged in bloc-56.
Seven of those were from SAM, Society of Auxiliary Missionaries.
Four Catholic nuns also stayed on.
Father Hanquet was very proud of this "Boy Scout" group ...

Father Hanquet was quite a celebrity in Belgium.
After his time in China, he returned to Belgium and amongst his numerous activities he was still in the Boy Scout staff.
His totem was "Pélikan Impérial" (in French).
Boy Scout once, Boy Scout forever ... including Weihsien.
