    Foreign correspondents were allowed to land on the Nationalist-held Matsu group of islands, October 12, for the first time during the Formosa crisis.

    The group, consisting of five small islands - Matsu, Pei Kan T'an, Kao Tan Tao, Tung Chuan and Hsi Chuan - is commanded by General Ho Chun. He told correspondents that supplies for Matsu had been going through at a fast pace during the previous month and there was enough ammunition and supplies for both military and civilian use for the winter.
