    would coat his stomach with olive oil if he went to a social function that necessitated toasts.

    I don't understand this.

    I expect the notion was that drinking an oil such as olive oil would coat his stomach is that he would be less affected by the alcohol embided at such a social function - presumably so he'd be ready for whatever contingency.

    I expect if he rubbed the alcohol on his stomach that it would affect him less, too. Not sure how popular that would make him at cocktail parties.

    Shanghai of that era really was a wild and near lawless place, divided up into areas policed by various countries' police or paramilitaries, or not at all. There were a number of Japanese teaching judo; the Kodokan under Kano shihan listed all yudansha (dan grade holders) by rank and location, and Shanghai had a number every year.
