    (C-5806)
    ARMS AND PROVISIONS POURED ASHORE ON QUEMOY ON THIS DAY OF THE DOUBLE TEN....10TH DAY OF THE 10TH MONTH....ANNIVERSARY OF THE CHINESE REPUBLIC. IT WAS A DAY OF CELEBRATION ON FORMOSA.

    IN AN AIR BATTLE OVER THE STRAIT, THE NATIONALISTS CLAIM FIVE RED MIGS; COUNTER CLAIMS ARE MADE BY PEIPING.

    THE AMERICAN AND CHINESE COMMUNIST AMBASSADORS MET IN WARSAW FOR THE 7TH TIME AND SET ANOTHER MEETING FOR WEDNESDAY. WE REPORTEDLY ASKED THE CHINESE TO EXTEND THEIR CEASE-FIRE BEYOND THE ORIGINAL 7-DAY PERIOD.

    IN WASHINGTON, THE STATE DEPARTMENT ACCUSED THE CHINESE REDS OF GIVING OTHER NATIONS DISTORTED INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR POSITION IN THE WARSAW TALKS....PAINTING THEMSELVES AS THE CHAMPIONS OF PEACE AND SWEET REASONABLENESS.

    (C-5808)
    THIS IS HOW ONE VILLAGE ON THE ISLAND OF QUEMOY LOOKED AFTER THE COMMUNISTS ENDED THEIR ARTILLERY BARRAGE. NINETY-EIGHT PERCENT OF THE HOMES IN THIS ONE COMMUNITY WERE DESTROYED OR BADLY DAMAGED BY THE SIX WEEKS OF GUN-FIRE. WHEN THE CHINESE COMMUNISTS ANNOUNCED THEY WOULD PUT THEIR CEASE FIRE INTO EFFECT EARLIER THIS WEEK -- THE VILLAGES BEGAN ROUNDING UP THEIR LIVESTOCK AND TRIED TO RESUME THEIR NORMAL LIVES. OTHERS BEGAN MOVING OUT OF THEIR CAVES AND BUNKERS, WHICH HAD BEEN THEIR HOMES FOR THE LAST SIX WEEKS. THE NATIONALIST GOVERNMENT TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE CEASE-FIRE TO RUSH SHIPMENTS OF FOOD AND SUPPLIES TO THE ISLAND. TODAY THE NATIONALISTS ANNOUNCED THAT ONE TENTH OF QUEMOY'S CIVILIAN WOULD BE TRANSFERRED TO QUEMOY IMMEDIATELY - WHILE NEW TROOP RE-ENFORCEMENT, NEW ARTILLERY AND OTHER MATERIAL (CS) WOULD BE SENT IN.
