(OP)'—Chinese Communist, troops, scoring one of Iliclr most spectacular victories in I many months, captured the vital railroad city of Slilachiacbuiuig yesterday, gaining control of the gateway to the cotton and coal-rich Shansi province. Reconnaissance planes reported fighting ceased Wednesday after week-long Communist attacks climaxed by a furious night battle in which more than 1.000 shells blasted the city of 1,000,000 Inhabitants. Part of the Nationalist, garrison reportedly fought its way out of the city after blowing up a coke factory, adopting the same scorched earth tactics med by the Communists. Chinese pilots said Shiachlachuang was n city of ruins with the bodies of soldiers and civilians littering the shell-pocked streets. Civilian casualties were said to be high.

The Communists inflicted casualties which the iyx •'manned government war machine, distributed thinly over North China and Manchuria, can not afford. The Red casualties were placed by officials at 30.000—probably an exaggeration since informed .sources placed the entire attacking force at that number.
