Charles Sydney Miner, Shangha. representative of several American companies, including American Asiatic underwriters,' the Metropol- tan Land Co. and C. V. Starr Enterprises, was free to leave aitei the two or three months he needed to "complete the settlement of his affairs," Wang said. Wang's announcment was tossed unexpectedly into today's 2!:; hour meeting of the two ambassadors. To Continue Saturday The American spokesman declined to give any indication oi Johnson's response, or to disclose whether the United States had made any concession to obtain the release of the civilians. Then he stressed that the talks would continue Saturday on the first item of the two-item agenda. This concerns "the return of civilians of both to their respective countries." The spokesman said Johnson would refuse to discuss the second item,—"other practical matters at issue between the 'wo sides'*—until item one had been liquidated by release of all American civilians. The spokesman said Wang's announcement was made without prior notice but in view of Red Chinese Premier Chou En-lai's expressions of good will the American delegation had "hoped for far more than this, long before." "This is the first time we have had some concrete results to announce, and we are always hoping for more," he said. The spokesman said the talks would continue without change, and would now concentrate on 25 American civilians imprisoned on various charges and three under house arrest. There was uncertainty over the one civilian still denied an exit permit,, and the spokesman said the over-all total fluctuated too frequently to permit a precise listing.

Pravda then accused the United States of an "absolutely unrealistic five-point program which boiled down to approximately the following: "The swallowing up of the German Democratic Republic by the Atlantic bloc; liquidation in the countries of East Europe of the people's democrati system set up by the will of the people; refusa. 1 to settle through international cooperation the question of disarmament and th'e establishment of international control; suppression of 'he progressive movement throughout the world which, to make it more convincing, is being called subversive and is abused in every possible way." Nixon, arriving back in Washington after visiting Eisenhower in Colorado, said he would not comment on the Pravda criticism. Heart-Attack Victim Is Resting Well M. P.

Estes Kefauver of. Tennessee. Kefauver, said Nixon, has been "consistently underestimated" by the professional politicians. He predicted that in his own state of California, Kefai.ver could win next year's Democratic .presidential primary "easily— hands down" over Stevenson and Harriman. 2. The "most difficult" issue for the Republicans in 1956 will be defense of the administration's farm program because farm prices have been falling. But Nixon voiced confidence they.will stabilize soon. 3. The Democratic presidential nominee will have no choice but to run on the record of former President Truman, or split the party.
