WASHTENAW COUNTY'S LARGEST VOLUME AUTOMOBILE DEALER
EXTENDS TO YOU A VERY CORDIAL INVITATION 4
TO VISIT OUR DEALERSHIP

We feature the following:

The Commnists have accepted
the offer to talk, although they
seemed' to be in, no haste to get
to the bargaining table.
It 'appears that their strategy,
may be to assume an attitude of
reasoknableless, while they 1hone
the blade they hold at the throats
of approximately 60,b00 National-
ist troops manning Quemoy and
its satellites, Little Quemoy, the
Tan Islets and afew other barren
bits of rock.'
.Westenmilitary experts admit
that the garrison at Quemoy can-
not hold out indefinitely without
supplies froniP Formosa. But even
with support of the United States
7th Fleet up to within three miles
of the beleaguered beaches, thbe
,Nationalist Navy seems incapable
of; adequately replenishing the
island's stock of ammunition, food
and medicines.
Hit Supply Ships
recent days, the Communist
minland artillery has zeroed in
on supply craft as soon as they
are run up on Quemoy's beaches.
Up, to now, the United States
Navy h~as served only as escort for-
the Nationalist supply ships to'
'within three miles of Quemoy.
This action is in defiance of XRed
China's sudden declaration ex-
tending what she called her "Ter-
ritorial sea" 12 miles offshore
from 'lines drawn between head=
lands.
The United States has emphati-
tally: "stated it will net permit the
Nationalists to be driven off Que-
moy by force. The response by the
Communists to a United States.
Navy effort to shepherd supplies
onto the beaches of Quemoy
themselves - which conceivably
could become necessary, to avert
collapse of the island's defenses-
remainsa dark and ominous Qu0s
tionmiark.

UNDER THE GUNS: This is an artist's conception of Quemoy and satellite Nationalist-held islands, Little Quemoy and the Tan Islets.
Amoy, at left, is also an island but in Communist hands. Chinese artillery positions ring Quemoy from Amoy on the left to the tiny
point of land jutting from the mainland at right.
