Holt Is an instructor at the Canton
Christian college, where he teaches
French and Kngllsh to the Chinese
students. He Is also instructor of mili

active In boy scout work of the school.
While the lighting was In progress
last June, the gunboats of Doctor Sun
Yat Sen were shelling the city ami
were answered by the forts of the town.
The lire grew so Intense that Doctor
Sun's wife, ids son, then the mayor of
the city, bis wife, lied to the college
grounds Tor surety. One shell, fortti
nately u "dud," lit squarely on top of
u college dormitory, but did no harm.
Since Doctor Holt's election as com
mander of this faraway post, he lias
taken an active part in its work. Ho
organized an American Legion baseball
team, of which he himself is a member,
as well as of the college baseball team,
which met the University of California

two teams met, the armies of the re
