Eden, who leaves Jan. 28 for talks with Bfesident Eisenhower, said East - West relations had changed in recent months — but "not for the better."

Johnson was commenting on a 2,500-word statement from Peiplng envoy Wang Ping-nan, who has bee negotiating with the American ambassador here for the past six months. Some officials in Washington believed the Chinese: statement was the first step toward breaking off the talks, but the ambassadors scheduled heir ,33rd negotiation mesttag today. —Wang's statement-declared that an agreement to settle U.S.'-Chinese differences by peaceful means was being blocked.only by U. S. insistence that it has the right to keep Chiang. Kai-shek's Nationalist regime on Formosa.. Sovereign Right Wang repeated Peiping's claim that the "liberation by the Chinese people of their own territory of Taiwan (Formosa) is China's sovereign right and internal affair." The Communist envoy declared 'our side absolutely cannot accept" thatt he United States has "inherent right of individual and collective self-defense" in Formosa. The statement, which broke an official blackout on news from the talks, called for speedy conclusion of a joint pledge to use peaceful means In settling disputes. It also called for agreement to hold further talks to arrange (1) the lifting of the U. S. embargo on American trade with Red China and (2) a conference between. Secretary of State Dulles and Premier-Foreign Minister Chou En-lai. U. S. Cool U. S. officials generally have been cool to such a meeting, holding it would amount to recognition fo the Red Chinese government. Johnson said Wang's statement "to some extent reflects the progress that it has thus far been possible to make in seeking a commitment by the Chinese Communists to renounce the use of force to achieve objectives. "However, by partial quotation and misinterprtation, the statement distorts and, perverts the facts with regard to our discussions concerning 1 the exact wording of such a commitment."

No Final Decision "However, because I must make clear to all that lack of objection cannot be construed as any fina" decision on my part relative to a candidacy for a second term in the office I now hold, I hope that all who vote in the Republican pri maries in 1966 will carefully weigh all the possibilities and personal ities that may be Involved. "Freedom to select, nominatf and elect a candidate to public of flee is basic to our American political system. Because I deeply believe that every citizen should have the widest possible choice in expressing his own preference in such matters, I would hope that the accident of my illness and the necessary period for determining the degree of my recovery would not have the effect of interfering with the privilege of every mem ber of our party to express his preference for the presidential can didate of his choice.
