What the military men discussed va not disclosed but it is believed cne of the major topics was get ting supplies flowing steadily to the Quemoys off the Fed main land. Despite the fact the Nationalists have run the Red blockade nine days in a row, the supply needs of the battered offshore islands were still serious. Badly needed are medical supplies. Dictors re port that the mortality rte among the Quemoy wounded is high be cause there is no refrigeration for drugs or a blood bank. Anesthetics are beijig rationed. LIGHT SHELLING : - Red shelling as the crisis be came a month old was relatively light. Up to nightfall Monday, the Quemoys took 3,615 shells, the Na tionalist defense ministry reported.

Gov.Faubus May Reopen Ark.Schools LEXINGTON, Ky. (ffi Gov. Orval Faubus said Monday he ex pects to reopen high schools in Little Rock next Monday, or pos sibly later in the week, after a vote on the question, of admitting Negroes. The Arkansas Governor made the statement at the southern Gov ernors conference. He has proposed a plan for operating the schools as private institutions. NO DIFFICULTY "We don't anticipate any legal difficulty," said Faubus, 4 but there could be litigation brought by the federal government. If they want to tie everything up and keep the schools closed farther, that will be their responsibility." Florida's Gov. Leroy Collins brought the integration controversy squarely before the governors earlier today in a speech suggest ing that it become "the first order of business" of Congress next January. NATIONAL CATASTROPHE' As things are going, Collins said, the dispute could lead to a "Na tional ejatastrophe." He did not elaborate on tiie -nature of such a calamity. Faubus closed four Little Rock schools when the U. S. Supreme Court refused to grant a 30-month delay for integrating them. The referndum, required under state law, will be held Saturday to determine vhether Little Rock citizens prefer to reopen the schools jon a private, segregated basis. Faubus said the question of who will operate the schools will de pend on how the vote comes out. LITTLE HOPE "Tragically I see little hope for pulling out of this crisis short of national catastrophe if w?e continue to follow the present pat tern of events," Collins said at the opening business session.

Although the Na tionalists' have succeeded in sup plying both Big and Little Quemoy the last few days, it seems likely that the , Communists will be in a position to attack within a re latively 6hort time. - RUSSIAN PLEDGE Soviet Russia has already pledg ed that any action on our part against the Chinese Reds will be taken as a threat to Russia itself. The United States, on the other hand, is committeed to retaliation against the Reds if an attack is made. On top of this come leaks from Warsaw that talks with the Chinese have almost broken down.
