Peking Army
To Protect,
Canton Area
Ask Soldiers To End
' Violence Caused By
Red Guard Youths
HONG KONG (P)-Red Chinese
army troops have moved into Can-
ton to curb a violent group of
youthful Red Guards reported to
have mistreated the aged and in-
firm in the drive to forge a new
Signs from Peking, however,
were that the purge of so-called
rightists from the Chinese Com-
munist party continued, with in-
dications that new heads might
roll from the top echelons.
Travelers from Canton reported
that regular army troops had be-
gun patroling Canton's streets
Wednesday night and early Thurs-
day. Cantonese Red Guards had
resisted efforts from Red Guards
sent from Peking to hold down
violence against persons accused
of bourgeois habits and customs,
the travelers said.
They added there had been
clashes between the Canton Red
Guards and those sent from Pe-
' "The Peking Guards we'e much
better disciplined and reasonable,"
one traveler said. "They tried to
talk the Canton Guards .out of
using too much physical force and
violence. But they failed. There
was a lot of shoving around and
quite a few fist fights' between
the opposing groups.
"Then the Peking group moved
out, and the regular army soldiers
began patrolling the streets."
Others said the army patrols
apparently had come from Peking
because Canton military leaders
had kept hands off the Red
. The Red Guards, compared by
some to the Hitler youth in Ger-
many before World War II, were
formed to protect Chairman Mao
Tze-tung and his leadership and
to help carry out the great pro-
letariat cultural revolution - a
purge decreed by the Communist
Party Central Committee in Pe-
king last month.
Leaders of that revolution or-
dered yesterday that the full force
of the purge be brought to bear
on "the handful of bourgeois
rightists who have sneaked into
the Communist party and are still
clinging to power."
The order, which presages the
removal and disgrace of more
party leaders, appeared as an edi-
torial in the theoretical organ Red
Flag edited by Chen Po-ta, chief
of the cultural revolution.
Apparently written by Chen
himself,, the editorial reiterated
that the No. 1 problem of the
purge was to distinguish the
identities of the friends and ene-
mies of the movement. It quoted
Defense Minister Lin Piao, the
new strong man, on this subject
and repeated his call "to concen-
trate the power of the masses and
the great majority to deal a blow
to the handful of bourgeois right-
ists who have sneaked into the
party and are still clinging to
The editorial appeared two days
after Mao and Lin had reviewed

THIS IS A VIEW OF THE EARTH from the 851-mile altitude reached by Gemini 11 Astro-
nauts Charles Conrad and Richard Gordon who recorded the scene at this record space height.
Pictures from Gemini Flight
Show Smooth Curve of Earth

HOUSTON E1') - Vivid color
pictures snapped by the Gemini
11 pilots from man's record alti-
tude dramatically captured the
earth's curve from horizon-to-hor-
izon bearing out their awed de-
scription: "Boy, it's really round!"
However, officials revealed yes-
terday that smudged windows and
exposure problems cut into the
quality of most of the movie film
that Navy Cmdr. Charles Pete
Conrad Jr. and Lt. Cmdr. Richard
F. Gordon Jr. took during their
three historic. days in space.
Gemini 11 used a captured
Agena rocket to soar to a lofty
orbit ranging upwards to 851 miles
Wednesday, farther from earth
than any man has ever ventured.
Yet pictures taken from the high-
flying outpost showed earth's
smooth, sweeping curve clearer
than on any other man-made
There were breathtaking pic-
tures of Australia, the Indian
Ocean, the. Bay of Bengal, the
Arabian Sea, the Red Sea, the
Gulf of Aden, Ethiopia and So-
mali-all with amazing clarity de-
spite Gemini 11's dirty windows.
Movies again emerged as a prob-
lem area for a Gemini mission,
although technicians processed
over 1,000 feet of movies brought
back when Gemini 11 splashed
home Thursday. A spokesman
said: "We got a lot of very badly
underexposed film that required a
special development job. You've
got to remember that it's very
difficult to take pictures up there.
And, remember, Pete had that
stuff on his windows."
One brief color movie sequence
did show, with striking sharpness,
Gordon astride the nose of his
spaceship as he tied Gemini 11
to an Agena rocket during his
shortened 44-minute walk in space.
His companion aptly described
the scene when he barked to Gor-
don during last Tuesday's stroll:
"Ride 'em, Cowboy!"
Officials said a second 80-foot
roll of Gordon's excursion was so

badly exposed it could not be
printed. And, on a third, the
camera, mounted on the spacecraft
hatch, was aimed in the wrong
direction, missing Gordon com-
Similar problems struck the last
two missions. On Gemini 9, Navy
Cmdr. Eugene A. Cernan ended
up with only a few poorly exposed
frames of his long walk. Air Force
Lt. Col. Michael Collins' stroll
outside Gemini 10 failed to show
on a single piece of film mainly
because one roll was lost in orbit.

Meanwhile, the two astronauts
continued telling the story of their
exciting flight to officials at Cape
Kennedy, Fla. A spokesman said
the two would fly to Houston to-
morrow morning for more discus-
sions and a reunion with their
