China watchers disagreed, however, over the document's authenticity. It was published Friday by the independent Hong Kong newspaper Ming Pao. Some analysts suspected it was a clever forgery, pieced together here from existing information about the power struggle between Mao, the Communist party chairman, and followers of President Liu Shao-chi. Others were inclined to accept it at face value. "It is still very possible that followers of Liu Shao-chi will gain the ultimate victory and we will suffer the ultimate defeat." the pamphelt quoted Mao as having told a foreign military delegation last August. The delegation was not identified, but military envoys from Mali visited Communist China last summer and conferred with Mao during the last week of August.

Holden—Vince Edwards—Cliff Robertson apart mainland China, Mao was quoted as saying they had been useful, but lacked discipline and experience. "If the revolutionary rebels (Red Guard) organizations assume power they will be mmediately driven out of pow< er by Mao's enemies," the Chinese leader was supposed to have remarked. "Therefore the revolutionary rebels cannot be allowed to assume power, even though their revolutionary spirit is excellent." Mao was harshly critical of his country's intellectuals, according to the document. He was said to have told the foreign delegation he had given up any idea of selecting his successors from the intellectual class because "all intellectuals, includ ing those currently studying in schools, are fundamentally bourgeoists and are not to be trusted." Ming Pao also published what it claimed was a secret Red army document reporting Communist China is seeking an extra 600,000 recruits for its armed forces. The paper said the recruitment drive stemmed :rom Defense Minister Lin Piao's warning that the United States planned to expand the Vietnam war and rekindle the Korean conflict. In another development, arrivals from mainland China reported today more than 60,000 oersons had died in two months of ferocious clashes within the army in China's southern province of Kwang- .ung. These reports cannot be verified but evidence of a Kwangtung struggle has ap- >eared in the form of mutilated, jound and decomposed bodies floating down the Pearl River from China to Hong Kong. Another mutilated body was discovered Saturday, raising to 60 the number found in the river since June.

The National Transportation Safety Board said Friday it had upheld earlier rulings in the case of Jimmie H. Lane, 35, and had closed the book on him. FUND RAISER — Lana Turner, 15, an accomplished piano player, will present a concert on July 23 at Betlialto High School with proceeds going to Janet Mellenthin of Forest Homes who will undergo a kidney transplant at the the University of Virginia Hospital sometime this month. Benefit Concert Planned for Kidney Transplant Patient the St. Louis Chapter would be contacting them. man told the Telegraph that a lliail (.UlVl W»V» J. \f+\tfrt. «*(*!* vm*»*« M — local- civic organization would needs of Janet...because be contacted to help raise funds 4 "- f " iml " Wf wn "" *" w fund raising ability, Lana, 15. of 212 Bonita, Glendale Gardens, has scheduled a concert for July 23 at the Bethalto High School auditorium. All proceeds will go to the family of Janet Mellenthin, 16, of Forest Homes, who will undergo a kidney transplant sometime this month. While no cost for the transplant and the removal of the donor's kidney will be incurred by the welfare-supported family of 12, expense money will be needed for Janet, her mother and a donor. Some money has been raised for travel and lodging expenses for the mother and hospital clothing for the donor and Janet but more will be needed. Doubt was cast today on whether the |800-$900 earlier reported promised by the Illinois Kidney Foundation will be granted. The family said it was under the impression that the amount would be due soon. But a spokesman for the St. Louis Chapter of the Kidney Foundation told the Telegraph that no individual grants would be made. The spokesman said that all money received by the foundation is channeled into research projects and toward fellowships for doctors. A member of the family said she received a letter from the Illinois Foundation which said The St. Louis chapter spokes- love music. I love people. I want to give a concert for the for the Mellenthins. About $200 has been collected and with it some clothing for the trip and hospital has been purchased. Meanwhile, William Mellenthin, the father, prepared 'to leave today for Richmond, Va., where he will be tested as a possible kidney donor. The operation will take place at the University of Virginia Hospital. The role of Lana Turner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Turner, now looms even more important in the fund raising campaign. Although the concert is scheduled N after the transplant takes place, a ticket- selling campaign by a committee of teenagers will be scouring the area. As an example of Miss Turner's fund raising ability, she held two benefit concerts at the age of 12 and filled the SIU auditorium at Alton twice. More than ?2,000 was raised for the Heart Fund, from which Lana received certified praise The concert was her own idea because we wanted to use her talent to raise money to aid in the research of heart ailments, one of which struck down her favorite uncle without warning With compassion and verve, Lana has another mission. She explains her reasons for helping a teenager she's never met. "My heart just broke when ] read about Janet, although : had never known her until ! read the story in the paper.' I'm just a little bit more fortunate han she. I thought it over and decided that I was going to do my part to help her." Miss Turner, who learned to read music before she could read words, said adults were under a misconception when they say "we are a non-caring generation." "It's true there are some teen agers that are non-caring but warden said Sturdivant failed to that is a small percentage of lock a pair of doors leading our generation that make the from a second-floor cell ^tier rest of us look bad."

License Inadequate Cook County Jailbreak Is Foiled CHICAGO (AP) — Warden Winston Moore of Cook County Jail, blaming a nearly successful break out by five prisoners on negligence, has fired one guard and ordered an investiga tion of three others. The prisoners,, three of them wearing guards' uniforms and armed with a shotgun, attempted their escape shortly before midnight Thursday. Two of the convicts were injured trying to scale a wall. Scores of policemen were rushed to the West Side jail when guards spotted the inmates trying to climb the final fence to the outside. None of the, officers was in jured, although 100 or more shots were fired by policemen some at each other in the confusion. Moore identified • the discharged guard as Irvin T. Sturdivant, 32, an employe at the jail for about 18 months. The The Federal Aviation Admin- stration discovered early last March that Lane, then of Ft. auderdale, Fla., had been lying as a pilot for Eastern Air ines since 195? although he eld only a private pilot's 11- ense. That license authorized urn to fly only single-engine lanes, and did hot qualify him o carry passengers. The FAA said Lane altered he certificate to make it resem le the card of an air transport Hot. After attending Eastern's pi ot training school, Lane ad anced progressively druing 1% years to the command of the piston-engine Constellation and then the four-engine Electra iropjet, into the $20,000-a-year alary class. He flew the busy New York Washington shuttle service regularly, and had a perfect safe- y record. He was unmasked, finally by and FFA inspector checking his competence to become a DC9 et captain. Eastern promptly fired him, and last March 4 the FAA or- dred emergency revocation of his only flight document, his private pilot's certificate. on to say with deep conviction known, "responsibility to your fellow The American has so much mean- doors ing to it but used so little to their give a helping hand to a neigh- " bor." In addition to her fund-raising concert, Miss Turner was hopeful that persons would be move to make donations. The Bethalto National Bank has asked that any donations be sent there. Tickets for the concert may be purchased at Gimmy's Drug Store in Rosewood Heights and Honke's Pharmacy in Wood River. The concert will be a mixture of a classical, religious concert and popular music. Miss Turner, at 15, has studied under Miss Ruth Slenczyn- ska, noted pianist, who has made some 3,000 concert appearances and 100 recording? since her debut at the age of 4 Miss Slenczynska has urged Lana to become a teacher of the piano but only after becoming a noted performer.

Along the way they overpow ered three guards and took their uniforms. The uniformed convicts talked another guard out of his tower by acting as his relief, took his shotgun and tied him up. Only the outer walls stood between the convicts and freedom but it was there they were spotted and tripped up. Moore said that when the prisoners were captured the shotgun was fully loaded and had not been fired. The inmates were identified as John Holmes, 29, serving Indian Sit Down INDIAN TOWNSHIP, Maine (AP) — About 40 Passamaquod- dy Indians have conducted a sit-down demonstration at a logging site in this forested township.
