To westerners, the question is as terrifying as the answer seems obvious. This is the last of five articles on life in Red China by a noted Indian social scientist who spent six weeks in the country.) By DR. SRIPATI CHANDRASEKHAR Copyright, mt, br AiMCliTid Prtli Hard work is the order of the day in the Chili Yin peo- ple's commune which-I visited during my travels in Red China. The evening brings a dash of large doses of Communist training. After the day's toil in the fields and factories of this pioneer commune in Honan Province, all attend regular classes. There they listen to the radio, which pours out the latest editorial from the People's Daily, the latest pro- duction figures from agriculture and industry, the latest government measures to liquidate American "imperialism" and the "Chiang Kai-shek the Peiping Opera, and figures on how China has surpassed Britain in the pro- duction of various industrial goods. Then there is a movie or a play or an acrobatic show. And last is the party meeting, which every worker at-' tends. Here the matchless art of self-criticism is prac- ticed. i People rise up and confess their drawbacks and fail- ings, criticize their colleagues and swear to increase pro- duction if only to "regain" Formosa, the island bastion of the Nationalist Chinese. Thereafter, everyone retires for the compulsory eight hours sleep. Nursing1 mothers and those of ailing children can visit the public nurseries or kindergartens, though this is not necessary as children are under the care of trained nurses and teachers. Parents can give up their bourgeois, emo- tional attachments and stop worrying about 'their youngsters. This commune which 1 have described is popularly called "The Commune of 16 Guarantees."

With U. S. Secretary of State Dulles ailing, the sauve, 64-year-old British premier appeared emerging as the co- ordinator of allied policy in dealing with the Russians.

Eisenhower's two-day goodwill visit to this tropical resort on the Pacific Coast ends tonight. He planned to fly overnight to Augusta, Ga., for a weekend of golf, or direct to Washington if the Augusta weather is bad. Eisenhower and Lopez Mateos ex- changed pledges of international friend- ship when the U. S. President arrived Thursday. Then they talked informally aboard the Mexican chief executive's yacht, the Soltavento, during a four-hour cruise in Acapulco Harbor and the ocean. When they came ashore late in the day, spokesmen announced they had discussed the proposed Diablo Dam, a 100-million- dollar structure which would be built and financed by the two governments on the Rio Grande border about 12 miles from Del Rio, Tex.; Mexico's coffee industry, its production of lead and zinc and Mexican concern about competition between its cotton crop and that of the United States. Neither White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty nor the Mexican spokes- man would provide any detail on the dis- cussions. But they indicated there might be more information in a formal state- ment after the conclusion of further talks at Eisenhower's hotel late today. As for the Diablo Dam, Eisenhower is understood to have told Lopez Mateos that his years of consid- ering whether to go has de- cided to ask Congress for the funds need- ed to join Mexico in the project. squeezed through the window on the copilot's side of the cabin, opposite from the sheared left wing.

Atlas No. 21 rose precariously with a brilliant flash at a.m. and appeared to be performing smoothly as it looped over and darted toward the southeast. The flashing exhaust trail illuminated a thick blanket of clouds that hung over the Cape as the missile sped toward space. Debris rained in all directions as the rocket exploded shortly after the pound thrust twin booster rockets burned out and dropped away. The main susfainer engine still was burning brightly, however, when the trouble came. The cause of the failure was not known immediately. No announcement was ex- pected because of the security aspects of the military shoot. Since the last explosion Sept. 18, the "Big A" scored a series of triumphs high- lighted by the first in- tercontinental-range shot Nov. 28 and the satellite success of Dec. 18. ;
