Previous evidence has pointed to the presence of senior naval ana air force authorities in the area. a widespread Communist naval communications changes which could precede increased naval op- erations, is impending. Crewmen of a Chinese Communist patrol-torpedo boat sunk by the Nationalists have said under interrogation that their boat was one of nine PT's sent to Amoy via rail from the Shanghai area dur- ing the last half of July. By transporting smaller naval craft by rail, the Chinese Communists are able to avoid the long coastal voyage and detection and interception by Nationalist forces. The TU-104 which flew from Moscow to Peiping on 29 August apparently was carrying foreign students to Peiping for the Fifth Congress of the International Union of Students.
