Chiang received 1,507 votes on the second ballot.'..Wb'e'n the results Were announced, 'tnillions of .firecrackers were set off in Formosa and messages of . congratulations began pouring in. Chiang's only opponent, Hsu Fulin of the Democratic Socialist party, icceived only 48 votes. The opposition gave HSU 72 votes in the first ballottmg Saturday, enough to pi event Chiang from winning at the start.Th e unexpected opposition also caused celebrations schcdulsd for Saturday night to be postpohojied. A weekend of conferences brought many of the .d el e g a t e s from Chiang's party ihe Kuorainatlng sack into line and the generalissimo won easily. . Dr. Hu Shih, Princeton University Chinese scholar who caVne' to Taipeh to attend thfe Tfa^ipnaUs't assembly, saifl Chiang's reelection would lead the way to nationalist reconquesti of the China mainland, In statements to his' arniy recently Chiang said that 1954 would be a lateful year, intimating that his trained ai,my could not yvait beyond December to attack the Chinese Communists. Chiang first was elected to head, the Kyomintang government on ihe mainland in 1927.

West Builds Up Strength in Few Year$ (Editor's Note: One June 27, 1950, Comrminist forces invaded Korea . and the cold war turned hot. Before that summer day, 'the U. S. Army in Europe numbered ' 50,000 men—an easy prey for aggres, sion. Four years and one war later, U. S European land stiength has increased six fold. The man who sup- ervased that buildup was Gen. Thomas T. Handy last of the Wor.l d War II foursar gener als. In an exclusive interview .with United Press, Handy tells how that fighting force would stand up in event of an , Easter' invasion. By MARSHALL LOEB FRANKFUR, Germany, (UP) —Gen. Thomas T. Handy, the man jehind the U. S army's massK-e :>os-Korea building in.Europe said today the West would have a "good chance" of holding strategic areas on the continent against a Com- munis t attack. "But, our defense plctuio is not wholly satisfactory,by 'any means," 3en. Handy cautioned. Handy, who retires 'March 31 a or 37 years' army servicp, wa:. the Army's European commander from September 1948 until August , 1952, when he became Gen. Alfred M. Gruenthcr's deputycom mander of all U. S land, sp a and air foices on the continent. Handy told the United Press in an exclusive intei view thql it wrh' broke out "we would have a good chance of holding strategic Euro pedn, areas until we .fully mobiliv. cd the necessary foices " When Handy took'over the a...... comman d in 1949, itConsiste d of only one division and three con stabulary regiments supported by a ^smattering of mostly propeller driven aircraft at Uvo bases near Munich Today that force totals the equi valen of more than six divisions and some 400 F-88 MIG killer Sab- rejets backed by a dozen 200 mil IJmeter "atomic" cannon, a "Ma tador" guided missiles squadron and some 130 strategic and tac tical air bases in Europe and Noith Afuca, American forces have swollen to almost 400,000 man in this thea J;er—equal to the estimated "strength of Soviet troops in East Gei'many. "This improvement has inspired a very marked psychological c.b.ange^ Jr. Europe," Handy said, ."pijr Allies have more determine tion to defend and maintain' their homelands. They feel capable of doing 'the jpb. And they have vast iy bettered their military training, their equipment nnd their corn mand." Despite the Western- buildup.
