China Peiping Drugs Burned

China's Anti-Narcotic Laws, sentencing convicted drug-dealers and addicts to death, came into force first on January 8 when a drug-dealer was executed in Peiping. Five more were shot there on January 13, and the authorities state that further executions are scheduled until the drug traffic is stamped out there. Huge crowds attend the executions, and beforehand vast amounts of drugs are burned. Apart from Peiping, the laws have failed to take effect in most districts. Drugs seized from dealers being burned on the execution ground at Peiping, on Jan. 13, 1937, by troops of the Peiping defence garrison, before the execution of the drug-dealers. (AP Photo)
