"Hundreds of thousands of workers had poured into Peking, creating tension last week," the dispatch continued, "but disappeared from the streets after Mao's support to an urgent appeal from Shanghai revolutionary pro-Mao rebels was reported in the People's Dally Thursday." Earlier Mao's faction had Stated at divisions in its ranks with a call on all pro-Mao organizations to rally around the Red Chinese army. The call for unity-with its implication that Mao's offensive against President Liu Shao-chi and his followers has split-appeared in the Kwang Ming Daily, the organ of the Maoist intellectuals, and was broadcast by the official New China News Agency. . Quoting Mao as saying the Chinese Red army is an armed body for carrying out the political tasks of the revolution," the paper asserted: "This is the fundamental principle of the great alliance of proletarian revolutionary groups." There were these other devel- oments In the continuing struggle on the mainland: The Albanian Comunist party organ Zeri I Popullit said Mao's "revolutionary line has crushed the reactionary maneuvers of a handful of revisionists and plotters." It was the first time the Albanian party, the Chinese Communist party s chief European ally, h»d taken a clear-cut stand against Liu's faction and was considered an indication that the Albanians, whose defense minister is now in Peking, believe Mao has won or is winning. NCNA reported Red Guard students had taken over many of the jobs of striking pro-Liu workers in Shanghai and Peking and that "serious losses to the state economy" had ' resulted from paralysis of rail and passenger traffic 10 days ago between Shanghai and Hangchow and Shanghai and Nanking. The agency also said pro-Liu laborers had interrupted harbor operations in Shanghai, China's biggest port, but gave this report on Shanghai today: "Traffic is moving smoothly along the Shanghai-Nanking «nd Shanghai - Hangchow railway lines. With the support of revolutionary college *tudenti, dock- ers at the Shanghai port have resumed regular loading and unloading work to ensure proper cargo handling. The local branch of the People's Bank has been taken over by six revolutionary rebel (pro-Mao) organizations. With the revolutionary rebels (Mao's) in over-all control, the whole production command at the Chiuhsin shipyard is Operating well." The Kwangmlng Dally ttid if the pro-Mao revolutionaries do not unite, "it ii impoeiible to make an all-out attack" on the Liu group, to "criticize and repudiate" its line "in a really penetrating way," and to "smash its various new plots, It* new counterattack and do away completely with its influence." Vietnam. But his report also will raise critical questions about policy elsewhere, the source said. Dirksen will criticize adminis- traton handling of the Alliance for Progress progroms in Latin America and also complain of disarray in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. In addition, the source said, Dirksen will have critical words about U.S. policy in Africa and the Middle East. There will be criticism, to», of American trade policies, alleging that they have caused harm to some U.S. industries, the source said. Ford, who will be in charge of domestic questions, already has promised a Republican effort to cut domestic spending and scrap the proposed 6 per cent surtax. Ford advocates an 8 per cent increase in Social Security payments, far less than the 20 per cent Johnson proposed. He said Republicans want future Social Security increases triggered whenever the cost of living climbs 3 per cent, contending this would provide increased benefits with no boost in Social Security taxes. Ford will advocate steps to prepare he United States for possible deployment of an antiballistic missile system to counter one said to be under construction i nthe Soviet Union.

Hale said he decided to release some of the contents of the report because he was fearful that Rockefeller would make it public in a way that would be unfavorable to the Faubus administration. One inmate told investigators he and a fellow convict were torturned for several hours. He said needles were stuck under their fingernails at least an inch deep and that wircpliers were applied to their fingers, toes, ears, noses and other parts of their bodies. Another said, that since he had been in the prison he had been beaten with a baseball bat, a chain, a knotted rope, a hoe handle, a shovel, rubber hose weighted with lead and a tractor belt. Investigators were told trus- tys, prisoners who have the Confidence of prison officials and are given responsibilities, sev- erly beat fellow prisoners. Inmates said convicts left the farm in prison vehicles to buy whisky. They also said inmates brought narcotics to the prison. Investigators reported convicts eavesdropped on authorities by concealing tape recorders in their offices. The report included an alleged incident in which a prisoner visited with his girl friend for an hour in a death house cell. Investigators also quoted inmates as saying convicts were allowed to visit wives or girl friends in private for "morale purposes." One convict said desirable prison jobs could be bought at prices ranging from $30 to $1,000. He was quoted as say- ng "almost anything could be lad at Tucker Farm if you could get the money." An investigator said he observed a line of field workers jeing brought to the prison kitchen to be fed and that each convict appeared to be 40 to 60 lounds underweight. He said he vas told by kitchen personnel hat inmates received a small iortion of meat only on visiting each month, one egg a year on Christmas morning and never any milk. He said the prisoners wore ,11-fitting and ragged clothing, slept in filthy barracks and drank from cups made of tin cans w|th the tops cut out. He said . inmates were given no shoes and were required to wear rubber boots or go barefoot. "All I want is prompt and un- precipitous action" said Rockefeller, who visited Tucker and the nearby Cumins State Prison Farm Friday. He urged a cautious and "orderly" approach to the study. State Rep. Loid Sadler, for 14 j'ears chairman of the state Penitentiary Board until his resignation in 1964, said "95 per cent of the complaints by convicts are lies." Sadler said an investigation into charges of prison abuse in 1945 revealed "that most of the charges were a pack of lies. The convicts will say anything they think will help them. I don't believe none of that stuff." The governor said his unannounced visit was not in an in- vestigatory capacity. He said he talked with prisoners, but didn't "ask a lot of questions." Rockefeller began talking with legislators about a solution to the ills of the prison system Friday, he said. He added that he looked with favor on a Senate resolution adopted Monday that calls for a legislative group to investigate the prison system and report back in 21 days. The governor said he didn't know what Kale's role was in releasing the story or why Faubus withheld the report. He said he was turning over a copy to the attorney general for appropriate action.

"In settling the current controversy a few personal passages of concern to Mrs. Kennedy have been deleted or modi- 'ied by mutual agreement of all parties," said Cass Canfield, chairman of the executive committee of Harper & Row. "The changes that have been made involving a cumulative total of some 8 pages in a book of 654 pages of text have affected neither its historical interest nor its narrative power," Canfield said in a statement. "In our opnion, the book as \ve will publish it in April based upon access to unique sources will proudly stand as a dramatic account of the fateful days rom November 20 to 22, 1963," Canfield said. Manchester said "out-of-court settlements are often called compromises.' "In this case," he continued "a more accurate description would be 'a resolution of misunderstandings.'
