^THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 1946 Chiang Predicts New Government Chinese Leader Says Communists Will Be Well Represented «>• MILES W. VAUGHN United I'rcss Staff Corresponded CHUNGKING. April 11. (UP) - GeiKi-illssimo Chiang Kai-Shek predicted Wednesday that a new coalition Chinese government, ill- eluding adequate Communist representation, may be formed within a few weeks. The generalissimo said In an interview thnt nil essential preliminary to a coalition government must be an attitude of sincere cooperation by the Communists. He said that Communist tactics in the slow negotiations proceeding in Chungking are Irksome at limes. Negotiations should succeed. Chiang emphasized. He stressed that thc Communists and all other parties must devote themselves solciy to Ihe welfare of China as a whole, and not attempt to "bore from within." The generalissimo received me iu I he living room of his Chungking home. He sat relaxed in an armchair while he talked for more than an hour about China's problems. He looked in excellent health and radiated vitality. Some of the chief points he made were: I ill—The United Nations will sue-' teed if the United States continues its present role of vigorous world leadership. 12) —China stands squarely behind the UN, but the leaders ol the present Chinese government, are not so naive as to believe that they can pit supinely by and depend upon the UN to preserve peace without thc active support of all democratic peoples. '31 - china signed thc Sino- Flusstan treaty last year in good fnith an<i expects to observe its provisions .scrupulously. Thc generalissimo repeatedly assorted that the United States "must continue its aggressive world leadership because it is thc only nation with tlic txnvcr to preserve dcinoc- rury in the lace of any threat. He sai'i that Cl.i-.p had nrt seen tin- text f the Yalta a-nxment untii it v as releases bv the State Department recently. At the time the Soviet-Chinese treaty was negotiated, he said. China knew the general sense of the Yalta agreement in which thc late President Roosevelt agreed to persuade China to grant Russia widespread concessions in Manchuria, Tlie generalissimo said that the present American foreign policy leaves little to be desired. He said the outlook for peace was excellent if the United States maintains its present firm support of the UN. Chiang predicted that conditions In China" should improve within a few months when communications are restored and foreign supplies arrive. He said the speed with which Chinese economy is restored depends largely upon the speed with which supplies arrive from America. Despite widespread inflation, economic disorganization and some degree of social unrest because of the cost of living, he said, he was not pessimistic about the, future. The generalissimo said he would like to visit the United States for at least one month after the new coalition government, is organized. He denied reports that China had asked Russia to delay the withdrawal of Russian troops from Manchurian cities to gain time for Chinese government troops to arrive and enter the cities at the moment the RussiRiis departed, thus preventing Chinese Communists from gaining control of thc cities. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS • SUNDAY SCHOOL USSON How the Friends of Jesus.Responded Scripture: Mark 1:18-20; 5:18-M; 10:46, S'l; A modern hymn-writer has written: 'I've found a Friend, O such a Friend; He loved me ere I knew Him; He drew me with the cords of love, And thus He bound me to Him." That was precisely what Imppcn- ed mnoiiK the first disciples, ns they responded to the friendship of Jesus, nnct heard His call. Fishermen left their nets us He invited them to become fishers of men. Levi, renamed Mnlthcw, a publican UhaL is, u Roman tnxgnther- er). despised for his work by mniiy in the community, left his government job when Jesus snid. "Follow me." His mime is honored In the first book or the New Testament. He prepared a feast for Jesus in liis house, and a great company of publicans and others were there. People reputed to be religious were outraged by such a scene, an'i they complained to the disciples. "Why do ye en I nnd drink with publicans and sinners?" How many of its "Rood" religious people would react differently today, it the unrecognized Christ came into a modern community, and attended a party with many persons of had reputation? It is a common maxim that "a man Is mown by the company he keeps," but that Isn't always a good criterion. What an answer Jesus gave to His "respectable" critics! "They that are whole need not a physician, but they that are sick," He Souvenir Collectors SEMINOLE, Okla. (UP)—In the . first, seven days of operation, parking meters here netted the city S490.15. and t\vz German 10-maik pieces, one Tunisian coin, one Belgian coin and three slugs of no value. • 5:27-28 never Implied thnt the publicans were better (hint the Pharisees. As a matter of fact, among the strict •sect of th c Pharisees were many fine and eanifst people. What Jesus did Imply was llmt the publicans needed Him most. What n different world this might be, If «11 who profess to Ix-llcve in Jesus were filled with the same for helping those most in need—thc sinful, the discouraged, the Poor and needy, the careworn nnd heavily laden! If we had been living when u-vl gave his party, would we have been with Jesus among the guests? Oi would we have been among those who looked in, and found fault? What sort of response tlo we make to the friendship of JesnsV Do we try to be. friendly, as..our Master was, to those who need understanding? There were two sorts among the friends of Jesus. To some He granted the privilege of following Hliv and being in His company; to olh- ers He gave the harder task of going home and telling of Him in their own communities. Those forced to leave Him did have the greater burden. Think for example, of the poor demoniac whrX Jesus healed. That mm wanted above all things to be wltl Jesus, but the Master told him to go back to his unfriendly neiglibors and tell them what had happened to him. Sometimes il Is in plain, unex- citinc tasks that we can best serve Jesus and show ourselves HUi friends.
