BY WALTER IXX3AN Unlled Press Staff Correspondent NANKING, July 24. (UP)—Two American-built destroyer escorts and six mine-sweepers were slii))- ed for action in the Yangtze, Hlvcr today, ready to defend the Nan- king-Shanghai lirea against whnt tlie Nationalist government described as a ferociously" mounting Communist attack from the north. ' Scores of new guu-brlsllUiE pillboxes lined the river bank near the Nanking railway station. Bunkers and other defense positions have been erected to reinforce the naval units which are the latest additions to the Chinese Heel. Government sources claimed the Communists were massed across the river and poised lo swarm over Into Nanking ami disrupt the Nanking-Shanghai railway n t f» tlnle The reported Communist threat was said to be incrcasin momentarily. Sentries kept a ^hour watch between the low-built pillboxes, which are camouflaged against possible air attack. Lend-lease alrcf.-aa — P.icludlnK Mustangs, Lightnings «»d derbolls—flew many undisclosed missions from the airport on the outskirts of Nanking. Fully-ioafied Miteiiel bombers took off occasionally, sometimes returning with their bomb-bays empty. An 'entire division of Nationalist troops inarched through Nanking streets iii the direction of the railway station and ferry terminus, apparently to bolster the river garrison. In North China, where Nationalists reportedly have opened an nIfens!|Ve to regain CommiinU 1 .- hcld rail lines, there were conllict- ing claims of attack and counterattack. The newspaper Hcin Min 1'ao quoted a government spokesman at Chenkiang as saying Hint 140.0(11) Communists had been defeated at Yangchow and Taililng after suf- ' fering 20,000 casualties. He said Communist troops had lifted their siege on Lnho and were advancing toward Tienchang, 50 miles northeast of Nanking.
