Chinese Nationalists
Beat BackCommunists
In Western Shantung
By Associated Press
NANKING, Aug. 7.—Air-sup
ported government troops in
Western Shantung Province
forced units of Communist Gen.
Liu Po-cheng’s Army back
against the flood-swollen Yel
low River today while govern
ment forces in Eastern Shantung
increased pressure along the
Tsingtao-Tsinan railway.
Military observers said govern
ment commanders had every oppor
tunity to inflict a major defeat on
the Communists in the west because
the Yellow River was now five miles
wide and feV boats were available.
Gen. Liu's army invaded Western
Shantung from neighboring Hopeh
Province several weeks ago in an
effort to reinforce the Reds’ Shan
tung armies.
In Eastern Shantung, government
assault troops moved in to attack
Kiaohsien, 45 miles northwest of
Tsingtao. Dispatches said other
government forces captured Yitu. 90
miles northwest of Kiaohsien and
were pushing northwest to attack
Lintzu, 16 miles away.
Parley Held in Mukden.
_ The dispatches added that Com
munists in the Poshan coal mining
region southwest of Yitu were show
ing signs of retreat.
In Mukden, Gen. Chen Cliene
nationalist chief of staff, held an
emergency conference with leaders
of national armies in Manchuria to
plan counter-moves to an expected
Communist offensive.
Gen. Chen conferred until 2 a.m.
today with Lt. Gen. Albert C. Wede
meyer. President Truman's fact
finding envoy in China, who was
presented with a mass of documents
purporting to prove the Soviets
were giving material assistance to
Chinese Reds. Gen. Wedemeyer left
today for Tsingtao.
Gen. Chen's hurried plane trip to
Mukden from Nanking appeared to
reinforce persistent but uncon
firmed Chinese reports that he
would succeed Gen. Hsiung Shih
hut as Generalissimo Chiang Kai
shek's representative in Manchuria
- I
with overall command of govern
ment-held areas.
UNRRA May Resume Relief.
Meanwhile, UNRRA’s China office
at Shanghai said in a statement
that it was negotiating with the
government for resumption of dis
tribution of relief supplies to both
government and Communist areas
north of the 34th parallel and for
guarantees that UNRRA personnel
engaged in relief work would be
protected.
Shipments to the north were sus
pended July 28 after the govern
ment blockaded Red-held areas. The
statement said the suspension af
fects some of the most important
rehabilitation -work undertaken in
China—notably the Yellow River
dike repair project. UNRRA per
sonnel were withdrawn after the
government gave notice it could no
longer guarantee their safety.
V/edemeyer Is Shown
War Damage in China
MUKDEN, Aug. 7 <£>).—The Wede
meyer mission obtained convincing
I evidence yesterday of the civil war's
damage to Manchurian economy by
visiting the world’s largest open
coal mine at nearby Fushun.
Lt. Gen. Albert C. Wedemeyer and
high Manchurian officials spent two
hours and a half tramping around
the Grand Canyon-like cut in the
earth's surface.
They saw a stockpile of nearly
30.000 tons 4f coal, brought from the
open mine by thousands of miners,
but which can’t be moved because of
lack of transport.
Daily production is only 4,000 tons
because the Communists in March
destroyed the power lines which
kept the mines going. Total pro
duction for the year is expected to
amount to only about 1,500,000 tons,
compared with 4.673,000 under the
Japanese in 1944.
