Move To Thwart
TAIPEI, Formosa (R)-The Na-
tionalists disclosed yesterday they
have sown mines in waters close
to Red China to thwart any inva-
sion moves against offshore is-
lands and to choke off shipping to
the Red port of Foochow.
The minefields were laid around
islands which the Nationalists
hold as close as four miles to the
The move freshly underscored
Nationalist intent to hold on to
the islands. Foreign Minister
George Yeh is reported to have
assured the Legislative Yuan Par-
liament yesterday that the gov-
ernment resolutely opposes any
idea of a cease-fire in Formosa
T Yeh was quoted as repeating as-
surances there would be no Na-
tionalist withdrawal from the off-
shore islands, where there has
been both Red air and artillery
action this week.
Nationalist quarters did not say
flatly the minefields were laid in
territorial waters of Red China but
this would seem inevitable. They
said there was no need to notify
other countries since it has been
made clear for years that ships
trading with Red China must do
so at their own risk.
The Nationalists believe the Reds
have been getting through with
jet fuel and other war supplies to
Foochow despite the vigil of gar-
risons off the Fukien Province
coast in the Matsu Island group.
Near in 54
Francis A. O'Neill Jr., of the Na-
tional Mediation Board said short-
ly before midnight yesterday the
chances appeared good for a set-
tlement of the 54-door Louisville
& Nashville Railroad strike.
"We're talking business," O'Neill
said, "the flare up Thursday night
over the shooting of a striker is
all over with."
O'Neill mentioned that com-
1 pany negotiators had reported a
train wreck yesterday.
Dynamite set off under a freight
train derailed five diesel units and
12 cars near Corbin, Ky. late yes-
terday. In another dynamiting, the
L&N tracks were bent, derailing
three freight cars en route from
Knoxville, Tenn., to Corbin. No
one was hurt in either incident.
Asked if he looked for any set-
tlement Friday night, O'Neill said:
"Oh, yes, we're right at it."
Smouldering tempers in the
strike erupted into pistol fire
Thursday night and yesterday,
leaving one striker dead in Ten-
nessee and another seriously
wounded in Kentucky.

Thursday's mighty atomic explo-

to 35,000 tons of TNT. The bombs
that leveled Hiroshimo and Naga-

Two other homes, about equally
near, bore up better. Their walls

Some persons would have been'

A test home 5,500 feet from the
