The Central Americans never liked -'it. The Russians, didn't like it after '..ffieTr "Bolshevik* revolution of 1017. The , Argentines and the Spaniards don't it. And now it appears that the Chinese ji'J:'-tare ; for it, either. Or, if pcr- they do, they certainly have a peculiar way of displaying their ^Oriental affection. For reports from ,-Manchuria indicate that neither the ^Nationalist armies nor the Communist ^forces are paying any attention to the '*American envoys who now are touring ?,Manchuria in an effort to stop the civil "war. Both sides, dispatches say, fonv * "that the delegations will "interfere * with their military operations"! \ The current dispute has been going ', on for a great many years, yon know. ', And the, manner jn which it has been ' conducted has reflected little credit to ' either• Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek * or his Communist adversaries. > During the Jate \yav, for example, i Chiang's .oft-reiterated determination \ to'"eradicate the Japanese scourge" ' Tvas")1ot so complete that he let it deter ' him from storing countless iitiantities \ of war goods secured, from America, i and a million of his best-trained sol- diers, iii-the north—for "post-hostility" ' use-against the Red uprising lie bc- i lieved sure to follow Japan's surrender.

The Nation- j alists and the Reds battle one another .\ openjy ju .Mancrruria—and while they '; do; thc'-'Qussians-calmly go about their • unilateral business of stripping Man. churian plants of the machinery China desperately needs. • Oh, yes, a formal agreement to cease hostilities was signed recently >" Chungking, and official armistice teams, composed of Nationalist, Communist, and American "peace-makers," are now circulating hopefully in the buttle area. At least, the Americans arc; key Nationalist representatives, it seems, ure missing, and the Heil envoys have been mysteriously delayed. But they are encountering u studied deafness wherever they go. The Chinese belligerents know, even if their American "benefactors" don't, that this cease-firing concord is nothing new, One has been signed every so often for 10 years or more, and they all have miv.ini the same thing—nothing. The fight ing continues unabated, until finally a lied general is "kid- naped" or a Nationalist leader is "outraged," and the .struggle again acquires official status. A curious and deplorable Hitimtion, uii(|uoslionably. But the Chinese apparently like it thai. way. And, after all, it's their country.
