OT—Up to the time I left Peiping last week the Chinese Communist had showi no signs of lifting tlie ban agains foreign correspondents. The ban was imposed Feb. 27 On thai day. n persons listed foreign correspondents received . formal order forbidding Ihem t gather or file news. It was signe I by Gen Veh Chlen, head of the I Communist Military Committee. This action, the notification said, I was taken because Peiping was a military area. Why 11 had not been taken four weeks earlier when the Communist first occupied Peiping I was not explained. A letter to Genera! Yen asking him to say when the ban might be lifted went unanswered.
