Acheson Cites Note Flaying Ship Blockade Release of EGA, Consul Officials Sought, He Adds Washington The United States is protesting to the Chinese Nationalist government against a Chinese warship's firing 011 an American merchant vessel. Secretary of State Acheson told a news conference today that an im- mediate protest is being mada against this endangering of Ameri- can'lives. Acheson also declared that Chin- iese communist treatment of Amer- ican Consul General Angus WarJ at Mukden presently removes any possibility of considering recogni- tion of the Chinese communist gov- ernment. He said some progress is bdnf> made in efforts to obtain the re- lease of two E.C.A. officials held by the communist regime in northern Korea. Russia in response to an Amerl- n request Is taking up the mat- ,er with the Korean communist au- thorities, Acheson said. Acheson discussed the Far Eastern situation after first summarizing his meeting in Paris last week with the British and French foreign ministers and his subsequent trip to Germany. Acne On Germany While declining to go into any detail on the Paris big three con- ference, Acheron emphasized that complete agreement was reached on German problems. He said he was greatly Impressed by the progress which western Germany is making In its political reconstruction. The Par Eastern Issues dominated the questions and answers which followed his prepared statements. There was first the case of Ins the Isbrandtsen steamship company's vessel fired on, and reportedly hit several times, by a Chinese Nationalist warship.
