JOHNSON (United Press Staff Correspondent) •. -NANKING, China. July 28. (UP> —Generalissimo Cliiang Kai-shek walked into n tea party his wife was giving Jor n group of visiting American editors and spoke freely about some aspects of Clilsa's plight which have * circulated pre- viour'y in the twilight zone of speculation and rumor. The first surprise in what appeared to be a leisurely and extemporaneous talk was Chiang's frank recognition of reports that his government is undemocratic and that some o( the men around him are corrupt. The second surprise was his statement .that, all hope of further negotiations with- Chinese Communists lias disappeared anil that in his opinion -his troops will win the civil war against these elements. II was obvious that the Generalissimo hopes for substantial American aid in attaining this goal, but he did not make a direct bid for either money or munitions. Instead, he asked for understanding, .tor a cessation of earning criticism. ' He reminded Madame Chiang's (rnests that iAm?ricn, too. has a stake in his fight against Communists. The phrase that appeared most frequently in the' Generalissimo's discussion was. -"open armed rebellion of the Chinese Communists." This left no doubt that Jie regards \vhat is happening in his country as an all-out civil war and that he wants Americans to look at it that way, :too. Asks Tolerance He hopss thai under these conditions Americans will ^e tolerant o: the shortcomincs of his government—he mentioned criticism what he called its enefficicncies and (moral practices—and that in par •titular they will not ascribe thesi to anv flaw in the character o the' Chinese people. During his 30-minutc talk, Chian became cmohatic only once. H pleaded with editors not to prir stories from correspondents wh used their personal disnppolnlme: in China's progress RS a spring beard for what lie called "irrcspon sirjle and incorrect criticism" ithe Chinese people.

His I smile disappeared from his lips, 1 and he accented his points with a short chopping gesture of his rfsht hand. /The rest of the time, the Generalissimo sat erect and seemingly composed in a leather chair Tvhile Madame Chiang directed her household staff in serving iced tea and hcl towels to her visitors. The steaming towels she described as an old custom. They are for mopping sweat off the brow on a hot afternoon, and Sunday afternoon in .Nanking was one of the hottest the visiting editors have encountered anywhere in the Far East. lAfter shaking hands all around. ond giving everyone a cordial "Had," the Generalissimo saiil thrcush his interpreter . that he wished .to make a statement aboul China's economic condition an; about Chinese .Communists.
