It consists of Nationalist-held I islands just off the Red China 1 coast, some within easy shelling distance of mainland guns. Reds Venture IntoW. Berlin City Elections BERLIN W) — The Communists will try to win a political foothold In Allied West Berlin through the City Parliament elections Dec. 5- Campaigning under the, banner of the Socialist Unity party (SED), the Reds have only a slim chance ol making any sort of a showing. They will have to poll 5 per cent of the total vote — expected to run around 1,400,000—to- be eligible for jepresentation in the City Assembly. The Communists have not gambled at the polls out ol their own domain since October 1946. Then, in voting In all of Berlin, they received 15 per cent ot the total. Since the city split into the Allied West and Communist East in 1948, there have been two West Berlin elections and the Reds did not venture into either. . Their entry this year, at the risk of a disastrous public rebuke, puzzles Western politicians. Some suggest they hope to make propaganda capital ol the campaign by loudly calling .for peace and German unity and promising an end to unemployment In six months. Labor Group Studies European Wag> Structures ROME I/B—The International Labor Organization is undertaking a comprehensive study of European wage structures. In most European countries the employer, in addition to , paying basic wages, must contribute to national social security plans, pay special cost of living bonuses and —in Italy—meet the expense of a "bread allowance." The result is a great gap between base wages and the amount the employer actually pays out. ILO officials feel the projects will show both labor and employers how the complex setup of wages and contributions In each nation affects its competitive position in international trade. The most dangerous real cs- total area of less than 200 They range from the Tachens— where Communist torpedo boats sank a Nationalist destroyer escort Sunday—to Quemoy, 350 miles to the south. The Reds easily could attack these islands. If they do and the Nationalists fight as they have vowed to, there will be carnage. An undisclosed element is whether the U.S. 1th Fleet would intervene. American policy is to keep the Reds guessing. The only Nationalist territory the United states openly has committed itself to protect is Formosa and such satellite islands as the Pescadores, which are in the Formosa defense zone. The offshore Islands are outside this zone. Yet for 350 miles they lie along the Communist coastline. Southern anchor is Quemoy, only six miles from the Red-held island where the city of Amoy is located. This situation is only 120 miles across' the Formosa Strait from Formosa. The Quemoy garrison includes some 1,500 former prisoners of war from Korea. Series of Strikes The Communists began a series of bombardments of Quemoy Sept. 3 but this time did not repeat their invasion attempt of 1949 when thej suffered heavy losses. The northernmost outpost con sists of the Tachen Islands, which unlike Quemoy are deep water islands with' rugged shores easits defended except against air attack They are garrisoned by upward.- of 1.000 troops. In between the Tachens and Que moy are the White Dog and Matsu groups dominating the mouth o the Min River on which the Fukien provincial capital Is located. No one in Taipeh doubts th Nationalist determination to hold these islands, and Communist de termination to liquidate them combine to create the most ex plosive potential since the Nation alists took refuge on Formosa in 1949.

W) — ilands taken from a dead baby are apparently still living and working two years later in a young woman's body, two surgeons reported today. They are the thyroid gland and the parathyroids, little glands which ride piggy-back on the thyroid. They are apparently the first case of successful transplanting of these glands for this long fl time. The dramatic case was described to the American College ,of Surgeons by Doctors Julius A. Sterling and Ralph Goldsmith, of Albert Einstein Medical Center, Philadelphia. The woman, now 31, had her own thyroid and parathyroids removed in 1941 because her thyroid was too active. Later, she began suffering from muscular spasms, tremors and pain due to lack of calcium, which is controlled by the parathyroids. An attempt, at another hospital, to transplant parathyroids in 1949 failed. She grew worse, had to go to the hospital as often as four times daily for "calcium injections. She also suffered from lack of thyroid hormone. Just two years ago, she wa given the glands from a baby who died at 21 days of age. The baby s parents gave permission for re- noval of the glands from the infants neck within an hour after death. The glands were placed In the woman's groin. Blood vessels of the glands were connected with her own blood vessels. She has been free of disease complications ever since, Sterling said. Once in a while she takes calcium pills. She no longer needs thyroid pills or other medicines. No part of the state of Colorado Is at sea level. day of heart congestion.
