Most of them will mark the holiday in churches of their faith. But many also will band together for tra- ditional public observances.

Friday he described the seizure of much of the government by Communists and an anti- Communist purge that has jailed up to anti- Communists.) By LARRY COLLINS TOKYO Red China claimed today it has smashed an uprising in Tibet and installed the Panchen rival of the rebellious Dalai head of a new regime. An order by Premier Chou En-lai abolished the Tibetan government nominally headed by the Dalai Lama. Peiping said the Dalai Lama "under duress by the rebels" tore up the treaty he signed in 1951 with Red China. A broadcast by Peiping said the 23-year-old Dalai Lama had been abducted by rebels who rose against the Red Chinese overlords last week. Peiping charged the rebels had been armed by sup- plies airdropped by the Chinese Nationalists. The sup- plies included radio equipment. The rebels attacked Lhasa on March 19 and were deftiat- ed in two days of battle, Peiping said. It listed rebel casualties at captured. The Red Chinese troops seized small arms, 81 machincguns, 27 mortars, 6 mountain guns and huge amounts of ammunition, the broadcast said.

Tick Analyzed in P-T Articles East and West are slowly moving toward a summit meeting. There the West will match wits with a 5-foot-5 ex-coal miner named Nikita Khrushchev. What are the things that made him what he is today? How did he rise out of a morass of Red intrigue to be- come a leader of a third of the world's people? What are his strengths and weaknesses? These are some of the questions William L. Ryan deals with in a perceptive series of articles beginning in The Press-Telegram Monday. You'll find it an absorbing story of the way Khrush- chev works, of the stark pressures that underlie the West's grasp for of the things that can change Russia. ynwood Trucker n 3-Death Crash LANCASTER, Pa. hree persons were killed i tanty shortly after midnig their car collided wi truck trailer four mil 'est of here.

This intention. Department said, the State was dis- closed by Red China's action abolishing the Dalai Lama's regime and imposing military rule on Tibet. Such action "is a btatent violation of Peiping's solemn pledge of May 1951 guaran- teeing the Tibetans political and religious the statement added. THE UNITED STATES noted that among the five Chinese appointees named to an ad- ministrative control commit- tee there is a deputy political commissar of the Chinese Communist army. H said this is evidence of Peiping's inten- tion, and added: 'The Communist order states the Panchen Lama will act as chairman of the riew Tibetan regime. The Panchen Lama has never been the pri- mary religious leader of Tibet and it is clear that placement of the Dalai Lama lias been effected by foreign intervention without the con- sent of the Tibetan people. The Panchen Lama was brought up in China and came to Tibet in the wake of the Chinese Red army."
