Mac has given an extended inter- view to Mark Gays, until recently a correspondent for the Chicago Sun and PM, who came on the same plane with me from Peiping. Yenan, which with its dry air, clear skies and adobe walled hous- es reminds you of New Mexico, is a two-fold capital. First, it has the Communist Party headquart- ers. That includes the headquart- ers of the Red Army, which is en- tirely a party instrument. Sec- ondly, the border region compris- ing parts of Shensi, Kansu, Ningh- sia provinces, is ruled from here. There are about eight such bar- "tier region governments for/the various areas occupied by com- munist troops. The Reds Insist there is no overall control, but that eacl border government is autonom- ous. The Communist Party holds only one-third of the positions everywhere, they claim. Actual- ly the Reds here expound a uni- form policy as belonging t o all these "governments."

Mac has given an extended inter- view to Mark Gays, until recently a correspondent for the Chicago Sun and PM, who came on the same plane with me from Peiping. Yenan, which with its dry air, clear skies and adobe walled hous- es reminds you of New Mexico, is a two-fold capital. First, it has the Communist Party headquart- ers. That includes the headquart- ers of the Red Army, which is en- tirely a party instrument. Sec- ondly, the border region compris- ing parts of Shensi, Kansu, Ningh- sia provinces, is ruled from here. There are about eight such bar- "tier region governments for/the various areas occupied by com- munist troops. The Reds Insist there is no overall control, but that eacl border government is autonom- ous. The Communist Party holds only one-third of the positions everywhere, they claim. Actual- ly the Reds here expound a uni- form policy as belonging t o all these "governments."

He was discharged last year after service as a war chap- lain. He will base his missionary operations on Madang, well known to troops who saw service in the territory.

Mr. Li himself has told me he is not a party member, but he be- lieves in dialectic materialism, which is Marxism.
