4 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Sat., Ang. 15, M70 Formosa convicts pair for printing Red news Associated Press H SIN TIE N, Formosa Two Chinese brothers who criticized Chiang Kai-shek's government in their Manila newspaper were convicted yesterday on charges of disseminating propaganda for the Chinese Communists. The brothers, born in the Philippines, were brought to Formosa under auspices of the Manila government while deportation proceedings against them were pending. A military court sentenced Rizal Yuyitung, 47, to three years in a reformatory and Quintin Yuyitung, 53, to two Medal tanner Marine Cpl. William K. McLin, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. McLin of 3014 W. Luke has won the Navy Commendation Medal with Combat "V" for meritorious service in Vietnam, the Defense Department announced yesterday. years. They were editor and publisher, respectively, of the Chinese Commercial News, printed in the Chinese language. Rizal Y u y i t u n g told the chief judge, Col. nie Kai-huo: "I love the freedom of fee press and think it is more important than my life. But I had no knowledge of the law of my mother country." Although the brothers had lived in the Philippines all their lives and had renounced Nationalist Chinese citizenship, both referred to Formosa as "my mother country." - They were tried under a concept that a person of Chinese descent may be tried by a Chinese court no matter where a crime is charged to him. The Yuyitungs' paper has been a critic of the government of Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos as well as the Chiang government. The Philippine government charged the brothers in April with printing pro-Communist statements and with financing rioters. On May 5, it shipped them to Formosa in a Philippine Air Force plane. Their appeal to the Supreme Court against a deportation order was still pending. The prosecution case was that the Chinese Commercial News carried editorials and reports from Peking's New China News Agency. R tzal Yuyitung admitted publishing this material but said it came from Western news agencies, which often quote the Chinese communist agency. No American news agencies are allowed to have correspondents in Peking. First writer since '65 allowed to visit China Washington Post Service HONG KONG - American writer Edgar Snow entered China yesterday. He is the first American journalist to be granted a visit since Mao Tsu-tung's cultural revolution. A longtime friend of Mao's, who first interviewed the Chinese leader in 1936, Snow crossed the border from Hong Kong less than 25 hours after arriving in this colony. He did not inform American officials of his presence and sought to avoid publicity on his visit to China. Snow last traveled to China in late 1964 and interviewed Mao in January, 1965. Three years later, he sought to enter China again in the waning days of the cultural revolution, but was refused permission at the last minute. The timing of Snow's visit suggests China may be interested in continuing to develop small contacts with the United States and that Peking has confidence in the stability of the present Chinese scene. Although the U.S. State Department has routinely approved American journalists' requests for travel to China in recent years, Peking has generally'barred all American citizens as a matter of policy. (The only American known to have visited China on a U.S. passport since the cultural revolution was John Steven Strong, who went to Peking in April/after the death there of his great aunt, Anna Louise Strong, a longtime Communist. Other Americans, including mem- bers of peace groups, have visited China from such countries as North Vietnam and the Soviet Union.) China emerged from the cultural revolution in 1969 to find most of the world's nations had turned their backs, offended and alarmed by the turmoil apparently being sponsored by China's highest officials. In attempting to rebuilt its foreign relations, Peking has sought to demonstrate order has been restored. Presumably, it hopes that whatever Snow writes will contribute to China's new post - cultural revolution image. It is possible Snow will have another interview with Mao. The Chinese leader, now 76, recently has appeared frequently to greet visiting delegations. In his four-hour conversation with Snow in 1965, Mao dwelt on his obsession with the need for a continuing revolution in China and hinted at the need for a campaign to turn China's new generation of youths into revolutionaries. The cultural revolution was launched later that year. Show's "Red Star Over China" contained the first published biographical information about Mao and is still essential to a reconstruction of Mao's life. Among Snow's other books Is "The Other Side of the River," based on his 1960 visit to China just after the collapse of Peking's Great Leap Forward.

Bombs found in London believed ior Ireland New York Times Service LONDON - Twenty home made bombs, b e 1 i e v e d to have been destined for Northern Ireland were found Thursday night in a police raid on an apartment in a quiet middle - class neighborhood here. Last night, police sources said another cache had been found in a house in Croydon. The police would not comment on reports that two alleged leaders of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) had been arrested during the raids. The discovery of the cache and what may have been an Irish - operated clandestine bomb factory followed a spate of reports that Roman Catholic arid Protestant underground groups in Northern Ireland were stocking arms and explosives. The implication of such intelligence, which the authorities appear to take seriously, is that the bombings and shootings that have been going on in Northern Ireland for months may portend much worse violence to come. In the latest episode of violence, a Northern Ireland customs post near Londonderry was damaged by an explosion early yesterday morning. The blast was discovered only when customs officials appeared for duty at 9:30 a.m. No one was injured. Spokesmen for the Protestant government in Northern Ireland repeatedly have S/v r Typhoon lashes Japan; 4 dead TOKYO (UPI)-Typhoon Wilda raked the southwestern Japanese island of Kyushu last night and early today, leaving a trail of destruction. Japanese police said four flj persons were known dead and 97 injured by dawn today.

Hyman G. Rickover says the United States is fast becoming A fortress America with 50 overseas air bases that could shrink to 28 in a decade. Rickover cited a sharp decline of the air bases from 105 in 1957, in congressional testimony released yesterday, while presenting the Navy's case for a mobile fleet of aircraft carriers to keep up an overseas defense capability. "We are becoming a fortress America from a tactical air standpoint," Rickover said. "We are also becoming a fortress America from the standpoint of the dissatisfaction developing in the United States to our involvement in l<tH:i'tftl V, a/v he said, "then we must have the type of Navy which will serve us best under these circumstances." Rickover, director of the Navy's n u c 1 e a r programs, said that burden should fall to nuclear aircraft carriers, which he said could run up to 13 years without refueling and are "the most potent, least vulnerable warships in the history of naval power." With the loss of Wheelus Air Force Base in Libya this year, he said, the United States has no air base in Africa or Greece and only one in Turkey so that "we cannot depend on land air bases for support if a crisis should come up in the Eastern Mediterranean."

The Navy has 15 attack aircraft carriers, including two nuclear-powered carriers. A third nuclear carrier is under construction and the Nixon .administration has asked for a fourth. The carrier's future role is to be determined by the National Security Council this fall as part of a total re-eval- ulation of the U.S. force structure in line with the Nixon doctrine for turning fighting in trouble spots around the world over to the allies involved while the United States supplies arms and technical support. Kiekovtr ttilifiwl May Ji linked the current wave of sabotage and violence with the IRA, an' anti-British organization that is outlawed in both Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic. Irish nationalists, however, assert that at least some of the recent blasts have been engineered by Protestant secret agents to arouse public opinion against Roman Catholics. This contention was heard in the Irish Republic again this week after two policemen died of injuries suf- fered when a bomb, concealed in a stolen car, went off on Monday. The murky atmosphere of violence is compounded by mysterious shootings in Belfast and elsewhere that are believed to have been caused by warfare between rival Irish nationalist gangs. The IRA has for some time been split into a "green," or traditionalist, branch and a "red," or left-wing, faction. Members of the tiny Irish Communist Party, Trotskyites. and anarchists are said to be gaining ground in the "red" underground movement. Estimates of the present active membership of all factions of the IRA throughout the island range from 1,200 to 5,000. However, many more Roman C a t h o 1 i c s in both parts of Ireland are known to be sympathizers of the underground fighters. On the Protestant side, the illegal Ulster Volunteer Force is said to be carrying out armed vigilante activities. MIAMI — Adangerous ropical depression, which Could develop quickly into a hurricane, moved into the lower Bahamas with 60-mph winds last night and posed a weekend threat to Florida. The Weather Bureau said at 11 p.m. last night that the depression was moving west- northwest at 15 to 20 mph and is expected to pass through the northern Bahama Islands early today. It was located about 640 miles east-southeast of Miami. The storm forced the Navy to postpone plans to ferry a cargo of potentially dangerous nerve gas rockets from the North Carolina coast into the Atlantic for scuttling. Dr. Robert Simpson, director of the National Hurricane Center, said the depression "will pose a genuine threat to the Flordia coast" if the present trend continues. A Weather Bureau bulletin said the depression, which passed north of the Leeward Islands Thursday, posed an immediate threat to boating and low lying areas in the central and southwestern Bahamas. The Weather Bureau said the minimum pressure center was located late last night near the central Bahamas, but the main area of heavy weather still was well east of the islands, pu type "The depression is moving into an area which is more favorable for further development and the possibility exists that it could become a hurricane very quickly," Simpson said. A hurricane Center bulletin said the depression is becoming somewhat better organized, but has not yet attained the circulation characteristics of a tropical storm. "But," Simpson said, "if it slows as we expect it to, it would not be a threat until Sunday." Simpson said the present steering currents indicate the depression should begin moving slower and turn slightly to the west. Tito resumes ties with Vatican VATICAN CITY (AP)-The Vatican and Yugoslavia announced yesterday resumption of full diplomatic ties after a break of 18 years. The Vatican said it hoped the agreement would guarantee "living space" for the church in a Comuunist state. The first of its kind between the Holy See and a Comunist regime, it calls for the exchange of diplomats on the ambassadorial level. Pope Paul VI and Yugoslav President Tito first agreed informally to exchange envoys in 1966 following an agreement which allowed stricter links between the Vatican and Yugoslav bishops and priests and greater freedom for church activities. The new accord broke a string of disappointments in the Vatican's cautious relations with Communist countries I.YOH MOVING-STORAGE in fcV«H GUARD YOUR GOODS* fop LOCAL, STATEWIDE; WORLD.
