On Landing Tea was served. Tea is served everywhere in China at All hours. Now our delegation Quot gets taken Over by officialdom. With our guide and an interpreter we strike out the next morning for the Imperial Palace the forbidden City of Imperial time so and then to the great Hall of the people which is the red chinese parliament. We re under surveillance not because we re cloak and Dagger types at All but because the chinese want to be sure we Don t become Quot incidents. Through All this the chinese show us what they choose to show and it s their Best foot Forward. Yet they cannot conceal Many editor s note Richard p. Lister is a Jas year old British writer who has just come out of red China following a three week British travel Agency tour. Here s his inside report on his first impressions of a country Long barred to . Reporters first of a series. Crowded and the methods dilapidated dwellings primitive agricultural which Call for backbreaking human labor for Lack of a machine. By the time we were swinging Back toward peking it was impossible though to avoid concluding that the people All seemed to be the same purposeful contented reasonable Calm. Nobody begged nobody stole. No one looked hungry and if Here and Here a citizen was wearing Little better than rags the rags were carefully stitched and darned and patched. Certainly there is government and party discipline. Yet the discipline among the people seemed deeper than All that older More dignified and above All coolly sure. None of us in our Quot delegation Quot Felt we possessed this chinese Quality. The three week tour ended Back in peking timed exactly for the May Day celebrations. Presiding Over the festivities rails unions resume Parley on work rules Washington apr the railroads and five operating unions heeding the urgent request of president Kennedy resume bargaining today in their Long fight Over work rules. If no agreement is reached before june 12, Only new legislation providing for either compulsory arbitration or government seizure of the railroads can Block a nationwide rail strike. A three Man emergency Board provided the basis for new negotiations in a report to the president last week. Kennedy in making the report Public said Quot there is no time to be lost for completing their agreement in this critical dispute. The ultimate dependence must be upon their own the key Issue in the Battle Over what the railroads Call Quot Feather bedding Quot is the Fate of 40,000 firemen on freight and Yard trains. A presidential commission last year proposed that the jobs of these firemen be eliminated a with 13,000 Low seniority men being dismissed immediately and the other 27,000 jobs being eliminated As men retire die or move to other were five portraits exhibited everywhere in huge dimension. Mao Tze Tung in solitary splendor and facing him Marx Engels Lenin and Stalin. In All the China we saw there was not one single portrait of Nikita Khz rushed eve. Rockefeller Stock As honeymoon ends continued from Page i this is essentially the same View taken in private conversations by sen. Barry Coldwater r-ariz., regarded As a rival of the governor for the nomination. Coldwater has told friends he thinks if the election were this year the remarriage might damage Rockefeller s chances. But he has said he thinks the Issue will be eclipsed in 1964. Sen. Abraham a. Ribicoff d-conn., who managed Kennedy s successful 1960 convention bid i for the democratic nomination 1 came up with a democratic slant. Ribicoff said he thinks Rockefeller already has concluded from his private polls that he can t beat Kennedy in 1964 and wants to wait to try for the 1968 gop nomination. The governor s marriage has served to spotlight Republican difficulties Over the religious Issue in a Iona somewhat different from rut which plagued the democrats when they nominated Kennedy a roman Catholic three years ago. Many Republican catholics enrolment increase University Park a.

In the protestant areas of the Middle West where Rockefeller has been trying to build up his image As a regular Republican divorce and remarriage Are generally frowned upon. But in the big cities of the Industrial states where he would be expected to have his greatest strength such matrimonial ventures Are not As Likely to cause raised eyebrows. Moreover the resentment of women voters against the governors actions might be balanced by the vivacity and attractiveness of the new mrs. Rockefeller in campaigning with her husband. Most presidential candidates want their wives along when they go vote gathering. Those without wives such As the divorced Adial e. Stevenson in 1952 and 1956, seem to operate at a disadvantage.
