CHINA-FIRST TO FIGHT
United China Relief’s 1943 poster, painted by the distinguished
irtist, Martha Sawyers, as her contribution to the cause, carries the
legend “China—First to Fight,” which is also the title of the 1943
United China Relief motion picture. Miss Sawyers was living in
Peiping in 1937 and escaped from the city just as the Japanese came
in. In her poster painting she has sought to express all her admira
tion for China’s heroic resistance to the invader as she saw it with
tier own eyes. United China Relief is now a participating agency tf
