It would be easy to make fun of the way he parts his hair, for example. He parts it exact- ly on a level witii his right eyebrow. In order to accomplish this remark- able feat, he has to wear his hair at a most unmilitary length. It would be easy to make fun of the way he talks. He is perfectly capable of making a full-fledged, full-throated oration, eyes flashing, left arm sawing the air, voice quav- ering with emotion, to a single listener.

Inside the city, the chaotic mon- ey market crashed at midday, after garrison headquarters outlaw- ed free trading in prewar silver dollars on threat of death-obvious- ly a measure of great desperation. The semiofficial Chinese Central News agency said rail service had been suspended between Hang- chow and Nanchang. Hangchow is a seaport, resort city and com- munications center .100 air miles southwest of Shanghai. Nanchang, 'capital of Kiangsi province, is about 250 miles farther southwest midway between Shang- hai and Canton, provisional Nat- ionalist capital on the south coast. (This was the first indication that the communist offensive might have penetrated so deeply into South China. Previous dispatches have indicated the main red thrust was aimed at Kangrchow. (Central news, however, did not say what caused suspension of rail traffic between Hangchow and Nanchang or where red operating along the line.) A Shanghai garrison communique said nationalist forces still were holding Kunshan, 32 miles west of Shanghai, despite heavy red artil- lery bombardment. The communique claimed Nat- ionalist successes in fighting in the Kunshan. area. It said units from the 29th com- munist army attacked Chigyang- kang, about a mile from Kunshan, but were driven westward after "a heavy engagement during which the communists saffered heavy casualties." A small red force which reached the vicinity of Taichang, a mile or so northwest of Kunshan, was iliminated by Nationalist troops, the garrison announced. These reds might have been flank defenders of the communist orce which attacked Kunshan. The garrison said their strength was inly 200 and was "totally wiped 3Ut." The garrison's description of this and the Kunshan attack suggested the fighting hi that region was not n a major scale.
