ELEYEW BLYTHEVTLLB (ARKT. COURTS* Tibetan Ruler Still in Control Of Capital, India Is Advised NEW DELHI, India, Nov. C. (Ap)f •-India ; haj been advl««l that Tibet's l«.yev'-.old ruler, the Dalai Lama, and his government of Buddhist priests still control Lhasa, the Tibetan capital. ThU report yesterday from India's representative » In Lhasa, Dr. 6. Sinha, contradicted persistent rumors stemming from Tibetan traders that the boy ruler and his ?Ucrly regent, Taka Rlmpoche, had before Invading Chinese Com- wmist armies. Dr. slnha's report heartened official sources who had felt that the swift collapse of the Tibetan government was imminent. The' Indian government - had told Dr. Sinha' India would give asylum to any legitimate refugees from Tibet. . . Of the military situation, the report said only that Communist troops were regrouping for further attacks after the capture of Cham. do, major caravan center 350 air miles east and north of Lhasa. Reds Near Capital In a report a week ago Dr. Sinha had reported a Red column within 250 air miles of Lhasa. Yesterday's mcfsnpe did not mention this force nor did it mention a second Chinese column reported moving on Lhps-a from the north. This force earlier was reported to have cap- lured Nngchu Dzong, 150 air miles due north of Lhasa. Still a third Chinese cohimn, from the province of SInkiang', north of Tibet, yesterday was reported moving into the far 1 west of the moun- taiipus country. The report, broadcast by the government radio here, bul not mentioned by Dr. Sinha ; said those Red Iroops were within 150 air- miles of Gartok, an Important irade cenler on' the route between Lhasa and Kashmir, In north JKdia. ^t Other Developments :Dr. Sinha told of these .other developments in Lhasa: 1. The Tibetan government has ordered Its five-man delegation now in India for negotiations with the Chinese Communists to abandon its plans to go to Peiping for further talks. The delegation had been seeking continuation of Tibel's status as an autonomous state under Chinese domination. 2. The Tibetan National Assembly has been In session since the Invasion began. Officials here said that 'Dr. Sinha's latest report rounded out this picture of the invasion: Red forces from the east first bypassed Chamdo to capture Lohmg- chung, 310 air miles east of Lhasa on Oct. 22. The Tibetans withdrew - to Pemba Go. 60 miles west. The Chinese troops then halted their forward push and, after stiff fighting, took Chamdo to prevent action against their supply line. The Indian report contained no casualty estimates but the Peiping World War II Veterans Seek Public Offices Again in '50 Seagrave Given Chance to Testify Burmese Tribunal Accepts Charges Of High Treason RANGOON. Burma. Nov. 6. Wj— A special tribunal today accepted government charges of treason against American Dr. Gordon S. Seagrave and called on the 53- year-old surgeon to disprove the allegations. The 'court ruled that the prosecution had presented a conclusive case to support its charges that the thin, graying doctor had aided Rebel Karen tribesmen. Under Burmese trial procedure Seagrave now is given the opportunity to refute the government's charges. "Seagrave, who for 25 years has healed the sick and trained doctors in Burma. Is charged with high treason, abetting the enemy and failing to report his knowledge of rebellion against the government to the authorities. If convicted, he faces the death sentence on the first count, banishment from the country on the second and a prison sentence on the third. -- The three-man tribunal accepled these three charges against Seagrave: 1. That he provided comfort to government enemies by entertaining the Kachin rebel Chief Naw Seng, a former Burma army captain who deserted, at tea. 2 That he gave the rebels free access to the grounds of his hospital, in the Isolated China-Burma bolder town of Namkharn, allowed the rebels to take up positions from which to fire on advancing government troops, and that he wrote threatening letters to prevent his nurses betraying his rebel sympathies. 3. That he gave the rebels medical supplies during their second occupation of Namkham In Decem ber, 1949. -* WASHINGTON, Nov. 6. in 1948 scores of veterans of the last world war are seeking public office In this year's elections: Two stand out In particular as "headline" names.
