He stated that the safeguarding of human rights is being attempted in some form. He pointed out that Australia prides herself on being the most conscious of her social responsibilities and that Czechoslovakia gives special attention to minority groups.

Feb. ; 11—<l.P'—The flight of, the Nationalist peace mission was post-j poned again toaay at the request ■ of the Chinese Communists. The postponement came as a high government source said that President Li Tsung Jen and other ; top government authorities had joined Sun Fo in a belief that the Communists do not desire peace or early negotiations. A telephone call to Dr. W. W. Yen, heading the peace mission from Shanghai, instructed the government delegates to wait until j Sunday. The doctor and his associates were pi^pared to leave Wednesday when a similar telephone | call advised them to wait until to- ! day. NO REASON GIVEN The postponement was announc- ! ed by Kan Chia Hou, the personal representative of Li Tsung Jen. j Kan has been the liaison officer ! Detween the government and pri- I vate missions. He annouced no rea- | son was given for the Communist’s desire for delay. A high source said that the pres- j iaent was expected to go to Canton shortly to cooperate with Sun Fo and the cabinet in beginning j final preparations for a iast ditch battle. Tlie source said Li probably j would continue to remain part-time in Nanking as a symbol of the government's willingness to j talk peace but that meanwhile, in view of "the collapse of peace ne- j gotiations," the government will .' rush preparations for the expected | Communist spring offensive against j the Yangtze line. STOP FORTIFYING Only yesterday, civic leaders ask- j ed Li to stop fortifying the Yangtze river line and declare Nanking j and Shanghai open cities. The source said United States j aid coupled with a broad grant ot ; supervisory authority may again b° j sought both in the military and j economic fields. The Government, | he said, already had mapped a tax j reform program which would be offered £us a talking point to justify j such a request. HOSTESSES FOR today's Welcome Weekend are Alpha Phis.
