Radio Peking Reports
Maoists Gain Control
Of Provence Shansi
TOKYO (P)-Radio Peking said
yesterday military leaders the na-
tion over had vowed to help Mao
Tse-tung wrest party, government
and financial power from his foes.
And another broadcast said Mao-
ists had seized control of Shansi
Province, next door to Peking.
The first broadcast seemed to
be an admission that Mao's ene-
mies are solidly entrenched in the
party and government apparatus.
Other reports told of Mao's forces
complaining they were in a minor-
ity.
The roster of military "com-
manders and fighters" wh o
pledged to help Mao fight "those
in authority who are taking the
capitalist road" was impressive,
if Radio Peking could be believed.
There have been somewhat similar
pledges of support before, but so
far the army has taken little ac-
tion in the Chinese tumult.
Manchuria
The radio said the pledges came
from Manchuria in the northeast,
Inner Mongolia in the north, Sin-
kiang Province in the far noth-
west, Tibet in the far west, Yun-
nan Province in the southwest,
Kwangtung in the south, Chekiang
in the southeast and from many
parts of central China, among
others.
In nearly all these areas, fight-
ing between supporters of Mao
and his chief foe, President Liu
Shao-chi, has been reported in
wall posters or by the official New1
China News Agency. In some areas,
such as Sinkiang and Manchuria,
the army has been reported stand-
ing aside, or helping Mao's ene-
mies.
Radio Peking said "hundreds of
millions of revolutionary workers,
peasants, students and cadres"
were ready "to unleash a massive
onslaught" on the anti-Mao fac-t
tion.
Shansi Province
It was just such a mixture of
organizations that took over the
party apparatus and governmentj
of Shansi Province and its capital,1
Taiyuan, Radio Peking said. Tai-
yuan is 250 miles southwest of
Peking.

GOP MEETING:
National Conference Urges
Romney To Enter Primaries

I

NEW ORLEANS (R) - Gover-
nor George Romney's supporters
among GOP National Committee{
members agreed yesterday that he
will have to test his strength in
the primaries if he hopes to win
the 1968 party presidential nomi-
nation.
National Chairman Ray Bliss
wound' up a two-day campaign
planning session of the committee
with a news conference appeal to
the party's presidential hopefuls
to be kind to each other in next
year's primaries.
"I take a dim view of any can-
didate's attacking another candi-s
World Newv
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Chairman
James O. Eastland of the Senate
Judiciary Committee introduced a

date of his party," Bliss said. "Our
candidates should campaign for
president on what they are going
to do to solve the nation's prob-
lems.
"There should be no hitting be-
low the belt. I see no reason that
the tone and approach can't be
kept at a high level."
Barry Goldwater, the 1964 pres-
idential nominee, has contended
that the charges fired at him by
his primary and convention op-'
ponents gave the Democrats am-
munition they needed to defeat
him.
Romney, who is running behind

former Vice President Richard M.
Nixon in support among commit-
tee members and state chairmen,
has delayed any decision on en-
tering the primaries. He cancelled
a proposed trip by Michigan com-
mitteeman John B. Martin to New
Hampshire to confer with leaders
there about 1968's first presiden-
tial primary.
But Martin said in an inter-
view he believes Romney must en-
ter primaries and continue to
maintain a high level in the popu-
larity polls if he expects to win
the nomination.

stop talking about taking~ up a
proposed change in Rule 22.
The Democratic majority leader
thereupon announced that he
would move to go on to other busi-
ness when the Senate meets Tues-
day.
Rule 22
Rule 22 is the one that says at
least two-thirds of the Senators
voting must favor cutting off a
filibuster before a time limit may
be placed on further debate.
A group of Senators led by
George McGovern (D-S.C.), and
Thruston B. Morton, (R-Ky.),
sought to bring up a proposed
change that would enable three-
fifths, instead of two-thirds, of
the Senators voting to invoke de-
bate-limiting cloture.
Had they been successful in:
maneuvering their proposal before'
the Senate, they planned to sub-
stitute an even more drastic pro-
posal under which filibusters could
be halted by a simple majority
of 51 of the 100 senators.
Two-thirds Rule
They were defeated last week
in an effort to bypass the two-
thirds rule on calling up their pro-
posal. The Senate voted 61 to 37
against calling up proposed rules
changes by majority vote, even
at the start of a session.
Tuesday's vote, taken under the
two-thirds rule, was 53 for cutting
off debate on the issue and 46
against, or 13 short of the required
margin.
Sen. Jacob K. Javits, (R-N.Y.),
appealed to Mansfield for another'
try at it on Thursday, but Mans-
field said "the Senate has made
its judgment, and the leadership
abides by it."
Mansfield supported the pro-
posal to halt filibusters by a three-
fifth majority,

Stratofortresses rained bombs on
a sector of the old demilitarized
zone between North and. South
Vietnam where Hanoi troops were
believed tohave concentrated. The
bombers also staged two raids on
suspected Red hideouts in Tay
Ninh Province, which adjoins the
Cambodian frontier northwest of
Saigon.
Stormy Weather
Stormy weather Monday held
U.S. squadrons to 42 missions
north of the border, about one-
third of the normal run when
skies are clear. Among those which
got through, some Navy all-
weather Intruders hit the railroad
yards of Thanh Hoa, 80 miles
south of Hanoi.
Cmdr. Ron Mays, Olla, La., said
500-pound bombs from his In-
truder set off a secondary blast
that illuminated the whole cock-
pit.
"It lit up the sky like a bolt of
lightning," he said.

DETROIT ()P)-Sales of U.S.-:
built automoblies slipped again in
the middle 10 days of this month,
compared with the same year-
ago period, but there were a few
specks of brightness in the market.
None of the four'top automakers
showed a gain, as compared with
the Jan. 11-20 span of 1966-the
industry's next-to-best sales year
in history.
But the dip was not as deep as
in 1967's first 10 days, when sales
were 21.1 per cent off the pace
with which last year started. This
time the percentage decline was
8.29.
While the industry holds that
comparisons of unlike periods
generally are deceiving, all of the
companies showed sharp sales
gains over the month's first 10
days.
Sales Set Record
Cadillac division of General
Motors Corp. reported its mid-
January, 10-day sales set a record
with dealers delivering 6,508 and
topping the previous all-time high
of 6,343 for the same 10 days of
1966.
Ford division of Ford Motor Co.
said its truck sales of 15,349 were
a record for Jan. 11-20. The old
mark of 14,822 was set last year.
Chrysler reported retail sales
for the mid-month period were
33,631, down 17 per cent from the
40,345 passenger cars delivered in
like 1966.
General Motors, with Chevrolet

showing a decline of more than
10,000 against Jan. 11-20 of last
year, reported passenger car sales
of 101,444 compared with 125,206.
It said commercial vehicle sales
were 18,737, against 20,460.
American Motors
American Motors Corp., which
went back into production Mon-
day after a two-week shutdown
to balance output with inventories,
reported 10-day sales of 5,062,
compared with 6,590 in the Jan.
11-20 span of 1966. AMC's mid-
month deliveries were up sharply
from the 3,887 in the month's first
10 days.
Ford division said its dealers
sold 50,638, compared with 58,528
in the like year-ago 10 days. It
said 12,028 of the vehicles sold
were Mustangs and described this
as "about average" for such a
period.
Lincoln-Mercury division's 10,528
for this year and 12,119 for last,
gave Ford a total of 61,166 and
70,547, respectively, for mfid-Janu-
ary this year and last.
American vehicle owners scrap-
ped 7.2 million vehicles in 1966,
a record, but at the same time the
vehicle population of the United
States increased by 3.5 million, the
largest single year growth on riec-
ord.
Polk said 6.14 million cars were
not re-registered for license tags
last year and presumed to have
been scrapped. It said the same
applied to 1.07 million trucks.

the broadcast charged.
Counterrevolutionaries w e r e
blamed for trying "to make Shansi

tion. The takeover in'Shansi was
reported to have taken place Jan.
12.
But the New China News Agency
reported resistance to Mao in wide
areas, including Kiangsi Province
in southeast China where earlier
reports told of an anti-Mao army
forming from workers and peas-
ants.
The Yugoslav news agecy Tan-
jug in a dispatch from Peking
said wall posters spoke of "the
reactionary majority" exercising
heavy and threatening pressure in
the power struggle.
Tanjug reported an appeal from
Kiangsi Province by Mao's revolu-
tionaries saying unless they re-
ceived help they "would be unable
to overcome the reactionary ma-
jority."

A legal brief requesting the seat-
