Commie Buildup Opposite Quemoy WASHINGTON (UPI) — High American officials said today large-scale Chinese Communisl buildup on the coast opposite Quemoy and Matsu may be in preparation for an attack againsl the two Nationalist-held islands. On the other hand, they said, ihe Red troop movement could be •a defensive move sparked by recurring Chinese Nationalist threats to attempt an invasion oi the mainland, which Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek lost 13 years ago. Officials said intelligence reports during the past two weeks disclosed a large-scale movemen of ground troops into Fukien Province near Quemoy and Matsu. The two islands are just a few miles from the mainland but 101 miles east of Chiang's strongholc of Formosa. Some officials said they fell Chinese Communist chief Mao Tse-tung might be preparing an assault on Quemoy and Matsu to distract U. S. attention from Southeast Asia. Situation Termed "Dangerous" The situation was described in the highest quarters here "dangerous." The White House was said to be keeping an ex- wemely close eye on developments. Intelligence officials gave few specific details. However, they said the buildup appeared to be considerably larger than the last BIBLE SCHOOL PROGRAM SET FOR FRIDAY A special program to be pre sented by enrolled children at the Vacation Bible School of the Wheatland avenue Methodist church will close out the current session of the school at 7 p.m. Friday.

Current 'intelligence reports do not mention any great buildup in the Red air force in the area as in 1958. Nor is there any mention of landing craft necessary for serious assault. These factors led some officials to conclude that the Red operation was purely defensive. The United States has been con cerned lately by the increasingly frequent threats of the Chinese Nationalists to. attempt an inva sion of the mainland. Mainland Troubled Officials said some Nationalists appeared to believe the near-fa mine in China and the industrial troubles there make this an op portune time for an invasion, The United States has an agreement from Chiang not to at tempt such an adventure without Washington's permission. Military officials said Chinese Nationalists would have little chance of getting any. sizable force ashore without U.S. help. Nevertheless,'U.S. officials have been uneasy, about the situ ation. The United States is firmly committted to the defense of Formosa but the situation is not so clear regarding Quemoy anc Matsu. The assumption has been thai the United Slates would help defend these outposts, too, if a Rec attack on them appeared to be a prelude to an assault on For mosa.

A native of Indiana, Mrs. Zerbe INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Legal action to force legislative reappor. tionment was at a virtual standstill today in the wake of a ruling Wednesday by the Indiana Supreme Court. The court issued a writ prohibiting Marion County Superior Court Judge John Linder from taking action on a suit filed by State Sen. Nelson Grills, D-Ind., to force the State Board of Elections to reapportion the' General Assembly before the November elections. The high court held that the board has no power to reapportion and that its sole function is to supervise elections. The' court gave Linder until July 30 to either dismiss Grills' suit or file an answer to the .writ. Linder said he would file a reply in defense of his position that state government has a duty to act when the legislature does not fulfill its constitutional'obligation to reapportion every six years, PUBLIC AUCTION Due to leaving town the following items will be sold at auction on Saturday at the former Mrs. Carl Wagner residence.

There has been no reapportion' ment in Indiana since 1921. Linder, who ruled last year that the Indiana General Assembly was illegally constituted because of. the failure to reapportion, said Wednesday that he had considered appointing a master in chancery to carry out reapportionmeht. He said, however, that he felt the high, .court's rilling would block this, move although the .order did not affect his earlier ruling. Linder also had 'suggested that a three-man panel of non-partisan political scientists be appointed to carry out reapportionment. He suggested that the panel members be picked from the faculties of three universities in the state. He warned.that failure to reapportion could lead to federal court intervention in the matter.
