Press Officer Michael J. McDcr- mott called the Red charges "the ;|j'ial trijje." nj implied, in talking •^h newsmen, that the vice consul, 'Douglas Mackiernan of Stoughlon, Mass., would have his hands full )ust eetting out. Mackiernan was left behind to dose up the consulate in Tihwa, capital of China's vast northwest horder province of Sinkiang. when Consul J. HUH Paxlon and }ther Americans were ordered out last Afgitsl. The Paxton croup finally reached India tn Oclohcr after an arduous trip on fool and horseback across the Himalaya Mountains. Mackiernan radioed on Sept. 27 that he was leaving, over the same Kencral route taken by the Paxton party. The only American left in Tihwa. ho was just ahead of Communist foi ces. The Chinese Red Radio, heard by the Associated Press in San Francisco, pictured Mackiernan as n hard- riding "spy" who sousht to or- sanize the bandits of the Sinkiang wilderness against the Communist advance. It said he had !>een "exposed as an espionage agent" by three white Russian con federates, who confessed. McDcrniott. denying there is any serious concern so far over the vice consul's safety, the inference , open that some fears are felt. HR said the Journey by primitive caravan normally takes from 10 to 85 days in summer, but longer in winter when passes are blocked by snow. f ^lcDermntt said the department r tf not expect to hear from Mark- iernan until he reaches Kashmir in India.
