One of it/he wartime heroes of the Marine Corps has criticized strongly the presence of American Marines in China today.

Last night, speaking at a rally of politically-minded veterans in Alamo, Tennessee, Carlson said there's no excuse for American Marines being in China today. He said: 'The Chinese are capable of settling their own affairs." "The Marines are there," Carlson went on, "because Wall Street interests in Ihis country want to see a certain government maintained in China so that, they car. get returns from their commftmcnts." Carlson snid (hat he was slapped down by Washington after he returned from a China assignment in 1930, and warned of trouble in the Orient. He attacked the "bankers, oil men, and steel men who were making money out of shipping war materials to Japan." Carlson told the Marines to abandon ideas of a national third party—and the vets agreed with him. The general advised the formni GI's to- take the lead in working for good government.
