A few years ago, he said, the expression "making money" would have bad a hollow ring in China. Mixed signals from the Reagan administration on U.S. foreign policy have hampered American investments and financial harvests in China, Salisbury said, adding that he is encouraged by some recent developments in the early days of Reagan's second term.

By ANNE CAROTHERS-KAY RteMw SMI Writer A former newspaper carrier who used young boys as "runners" to deliver papers pleaded guilty to two charges of child molestation Wednesday in Polk County District Court. Frank Sykora, 37, of 1538 Twenty-third St. pleaded guilty to charges of lascivious acts with a child and third-degree sexual abuse. Sykora was arrested Oct. 19 and accused of fondling the boys he hired to help deliver newspapers. The incidents apparently occurred when the boys slept overnight at Sykora's house on the days they were to help him with early morning deliveries. Des Moines private investigator Sam Soda videotaped an interview with Sykora and gave the tape to police. Sykora claimed that he allowed Soda to interview him because he believed Soda was a law enforcement officer. Sykora worked as a carrier in downtown Des Moines and surrounding areas for seven years. He was fired from his job at The Des Moines Register shortly after the allegations were made against him. District Judge Arthur E. Gamble allowed Sykora to remain free on a 95,000 bond until his sentencing April 2. The maximum punishment for the two crimes is 15 yean in prison and $6,000 fine.
