The destroyer was stationed at Nanking when Japan launched an air and sea attack on Shanghai at the end of January 1932, and she supported American diplomats in the southern Chinese capital during the critical early days of the crisis, as well as sending important reports to Washington. On 11 February, she moved to Shanghai and, on 23 February, to Swatow (Shantou), where she remained until 2 April 1932. On 18 April, ''Simpson'' departed Manila with her squadron to return to the United States. Arriving at Chefoo, China, on 26 August, ''Stewart'' entered the routine of the Asiatic Fleet, conducting training exercises from bases at Chefoo and Tsingtao (Qingdao) in the summer and Manila in the winter and making calls at Chinese ports during the transit in each direction. Her routine was broken briefly between 6 and 21 September 1923 by a voyage to Yokosuka, Japan, to relieve victims of the Great Kantō earthquake which had heavily damaged that city and Tokyo on 30 and 31 August. Increased tension on China's northern borders due to the Japanese invasion of Manchuria made it necessary for ''Pope'' to evacuate Americans from northern Chinese ports such as Lao Yao and Tsingtao (Qingdao) to Shanghai beginning 19 September 1937. From 15 July to 20 September 1938, she cruised in Chinese waters off Chinwangtao and returned 5 June 1939 with the South China Patrol force removing American consulates and nationals. ''Pope'' was stationed off Swatow (Shantou) and Pehtaiho during 14 June – 19 August, observing the Japanese Navy (Imperial Japanese Navy) en route to Swatow and the subsequent bombing and occupation of the city. She remained in this area until her return to Manila 12 October for the Neutrality Patrol off the Philippines. ''Pope'' was transferred to Division 59 of the Asiatic Fleet 6 May 1940, and resumed patrolling off China during 11 May – 24 June. ''Pope'' returned to Manila in late June on neutrality duty and remained on station there until 11 December 1941, when she got underway for Balikpapan, Dutch East Indies.

In some cases, demonstrators attacked and damaged Japanese embassies (embassy), consulate (Consulate general)s, supermarkets, restaurants (mostly franchise (Franchising) businesses owned by Chinese) as well as people, prompting the Japanese government to demand an apology and compensation for damages. There were some peaceful demonstrations in Hong Kong. Early life Born in Qingdao, China, Lu arrived in the United States at the age of three, and grew up in California.
