   (Chop-Chop), who has been living in his home village in
   China, sends a distress call to the Blackhawks. A huge
   mechanical dragon is being used by the Japanese to
   devastate the village and intimidate the superstitious
   villagers. Ginny Mueller and the Blackhawks meet in the
   deserted village, and find Wu Cheng's diary. It describes
   the building of the dragon, with American aid, and Wu
   Cheng's efforts to stop it. Imprisoned by the Japanese, Wu
   Cheng learns that the Japanese attacked his village
   specifically to lure the Blackhawks there, as part of a
   bargain with Germany. Ginny's presence as a witness was
   also arranged by the Japanese. Wu Cheng gets free in time
   to reveal the set-up and save the day. He re-joins the
   Blackhawks team. -- Call no.: PN6728.1.Q3U5no.273
