Quoting wall posters, the Peking correspondent of the Tokyo paper Mainichi said 3,000 persons in Urumchi, the capital of Sinkiang, had stormed a school in the army zone and beaten up pro-Mao students of a construction corps. In Tibet, said Mainichi, the forestry agency used "white terrorism" to beat up 12* persons. There were no details. The focus of Peking's attention seemed to be on Shansi Province, where Radio Peking reported "struggles by force." "Operations in many enter- prists were suspended, production was seriously, affected and shocking traffic accidents occurred," the radio said. The report said Liu's forces were refusing to surrender the provincial party committee and had "fOmed a number of loyal ist organizations to create trou ble wildly and Openly against the pro-Mao revolutionary reb els." To meet what it called "the sinister means of economic war fare" employed by Liu's forces the Maoists ordered the ci'i- culating capital of all organize tioiis, mines and enterprises frozen. They-called On all workers, peasants and functionarie; to "carry on work as usual."
