The amateur radio operator re* ported that the balloon and its four passengers had landed near Pedcrnalcs, a Venezuelan port on the Atlantic at the northern edge of the wide delta. The tosvn is just 20 miles west of the tip of Trinidad in the British West Indies. The report gained strength when Minister of Communications Oscar _Machado Zttloaga was tiuotcd In Caracas newspapers as saying the balloon had landed in Venezuela, The Civil Aeronautics Authority said, however, that it had nothing to confirm the report. It was supervising the search by a Communications Ministry DC3. After searching for only an hour or two, the plane was forced by darkness to land at Maturin, 60 miles west of Pedernales. The Small World cast off from —Santa Cruz do Toncrife In the Ca- Wiary Islands, (55 miles oi'£ the coast of Morocco, on Dec. 12.

WHITNEY AP Foreign News Analyst Broadcasts from n Chinese Communist station show a retreal from the radical cqualltarian communism in many of the new people's communes. These communns are pemimili- tary units of tens of thousands of people which own everything and run everything in all rual China —agriculture, industry, politic? and even a local militia or army, As originally organized they were not totally eoualitarian, but apparently as the movement has spread with forced impetus from Ihe Pejping government, they have generally become more radical and more equalitarlnn. Some stroes is put on (he idea that the communes are building for socialism, not communism. Earlier the Chinese Communist party's Central Committee indicated that the compuinis(. would permit China lo move directly; jnto communism in the near future. To non-Communists the distinction between socialism ?nd communism may seem thin. But not to Communists. Socialism is do- fined as a stage of development in which, all persons work accord* ing to their abilities and receive compensation according to their quantity and quality of {heir work. Communism, on the other hand, is n stage in which all work according to their ability and receive according to their needs, Broadcasts proclaiming a retreat from extreme cquajitarian- jsm emanate from Wuhpu Station in Hupeh province in central Chi)•)£, They cite a letter from Wang Jen-chung, the first secretaiy of ![>e ffupeh province Communist party/ saying ''there is now an erroneous tendency toward abso- jytc equalitadonism."
