There was no official confirma tion, but well informed govern ment sources said privately that it did appear the Communists had stormed there and killed or captur ed its defenders. Taian, 45 miles south of the Shantung provincial capital of Tsinan, was captured by the gov ernment forces on April 1 and rapidly had been built up into a supply center for an extermination campaign against the Communists in that strategically-vital province. Join Assault On Friday the government’s cen tral News agency reported four Communist columns were closely threatening. Taian, and on Satur day it said that Communists driven out of towns further east had joined in an assault on Taian. It appeared that the Communists, after weeks of steady but inex pensive retreat before the govern ment armies, had caught their exponents off balance. Besides being a heavy blow to government prestige, loss of Taian would indicate that the recent government claim of having entirely surounded the army of Communist Gen. Chen Yi in Shan tung was a myth. On April 10 a government mili tary source in Tsinan said that a half-million government troops had been assigned to destroy the Chen army. Bloody Battle Among the press reports on Taian was one in the independent paper Hsin Min Pao which said the Communists stormed into the town Friday night, killed most of a division of garrison troops in an all-night street battle, and finally won possession next day. None of the dispatches made clear how the Communists got there. BEGAN IN ROME Modern taxicabs had their be* ginin-* in Rome, before the time of Caesar.

The manifests did not show its ownership, and authorities said its shipping tag had mysteriously dis appeared. The cache was discovered when a policeman on duty at the Manila airport told his superiors that an unidentified person had offered him $3,000 to get the vase releas ed through customs.
