Coast Attacks Are Indicated Bv STAXWAY CHENG TAIPEH. Nov. 16 (tNS>— Nationalist China's armed forces were given a “shoo* to kill" order today to retaliate against the Chinese Communists for the sinking of an American-built destroyer escort. Nationalist President Chiang Kai-shek ordered his army, navy and air force to go all-out and shoot to kill in stopping any Communist moves alone the sea and air lanes of the China mainland coast. Chiang ordered all of his island bases protecting his Formosa headquarters to maintain an alert against possible future “sneak*' attacks. There was no action reported today in the wake of the sinking Sunday of the destroyer escort Taiping, formerly the USS Decker. The Nationalist warship went to the bottom with guns blaring off Tachen Island, some 200 miles north of Formosa. Four Red Boats Four Chinese Communist torpedo boats, reportedly Russian built, sent the Taiping to its death with the loss of 23 men. (A report from Washington said that the Nationalist Navy has been supplied with an undisclosed number of American P-T boats which were so valuable in World War Two against the Japanese. Informed Navy sources said the patrol torpedo boats may be the best weapon against the new Chinese torpedo hoa*s. The Chinese Nationalist crews were trained by American crews to use the boats.) Out of a crew' of 130, 152 men j were rescued from the stricken Tasping by other Nationalist ships.

Production Starts At Egypt's First Small Arms Plant CAIRO —(UP)— Egypt is on the road to military self-sufficiency with the recent launching of the first small arms factory designed to supply the Egyption army’s requirements. Premier Gamal Abdel Nasser inaugurated the war plant, which is situated in a Cairo suburb and is already turning out rifles and machine guns. Future production of the factory will be enlarged to include a wider range of armaments, according to Maj. Gen. Hassan Ragab. Egyptian undersecretary of war. Will Help Arabs The director of the new arms plant said its maximum production capacity was designed to provide small arms requirements not only of the Egyptian army but, i eventually, of neighboring Arab nations. The operation of the new factory is capable of a quick switch to civilian production in the event of easing of the present international tension, the director revealed. A large part of the machinery for the factory had to be purchased abroad, and local manpower was trained to handle the highly intricate production. The director of the plant said he had a number of “foreign assistants” to help him and his staff in laying out the plant’s blueprints and initiating Egyptian labor to the skills of armament making. The prime minister remarked at the opening of the new plant i that it was contributing to fulfill T. A. Pool Elected Head Of Auto Club T. A.

Process For Rore Metals Discovered COLUMBUS, 0.-(UP)-Scientists at Battelle Memorial Institute here have announced a new process for the recovery of thorium and the rare earth metals from monazite sand. The institute says the process, developed under a project sponsored by the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission, is simpler than present processes and may aid in developing new markets. Best known deposits of monazite are beach sands of Brazil and India, although there are some in Florida and Idaho and other scattered parts of the United States.
