    SYNOPSIS: United States Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield and Minority Leader Hugh Scott met with Premier Chou En-lai of the People's Republic of China in Peking last week. This was the first time that the Senators had talked with the Chinese Premier since arriving in the capital with their wives and staffs six days ago. Their fact-finding mission will be in China for three weeks, acting as a follow-up to President Nixon's recent visit. Pennsylvania Republican Scott and Montana Democrat Mike Mansfield claim that the unobtrusive nature of their tour will place them in a much better position to assess true Chinese feeling towards the United States than President Nixon's highly-publicised visit.

    After these talks with the Chinese Premier, the two Senate Leaders left Peking for Nanking, Canton and other major Chinese cities.
