The general, known as "Tiger" Wang, was an avid fan of Chinese opera, and he decided to save it from extinction. The Nationalist air forces established a Chinese opera training school in 1952 and the next year put on its first performance. From that start came the renaissance of Chinese opera on Taiwan, a movement financed "and guided largely by the government and its military establishments. "Tiger" Wang now is the chief Nationalist Chinese military delegate to the United Nations. Four years ago the general set out to save opera, a couple of amateur singers, Wang Chenchu and his wife, opened an opera school, but poor management led into unending financial difficulties until the government took over the private school early this year. The Chinese army also set op an opera school, with fine success, and now about 450 students have been graduated from these three schools, with 80 per cent of them still performing opera.

Its classical stories ten of loyalties between citizens and emperors, students and teachers, children and parents. But the Chinese Communists altered Chinese opera by inventing new heroes party officials, revolutionary soldiers, workers, peasants and a few weeks ago Peking's official 'New- China News Agency announced another change which startled music students. '"Chinese opera performers on the Communist-ruled China mainland now sing to the accompaniment " ot a " piano. Esinbua said. "Impossible," a veteran opera singer in Taiwan, Formosa, said. "That is like trying to eat steak with chopsticks." The piano comes from the West China's own classical music belongs to gongs, cym-bals, drums, flutes, pipes and. two-string violins developed in Oriental palaces. In an attempt to maintain the purity of Chinese opera, President Chiang kai-shek's Nationalist Chinese government is subsidizing it in Taiwan. The Nationalists believe the Communists are reshaping all Chinese art forms into pro-' paganda tools and destroying China's ancient heritage. It is to save this heritage that Chiang's government has undertaken a specific program to preserve Chinese opera in its old forms. The Nationalist government is spending about $500,000 a year to maintain Chinese opera theaters in Taiwan. Seven Chinese opera troupes actually are owned and managed by Nationalist military organizations. They perform throughout Taiwan and even on the offshore islands of Quemoy and Matsu, which lie within eyesight of Communist Chinese artillery guns. The origin of Chinese opera is traced back to the Yuan dynasty in the 13th Century. It went through several musical revolutions until" the middle of the Ming Dynasty 1368 to 1644 it reached the style of opera which is preserved in Taiwan today. When the Communists won the China mainland in 1949 and Chiang's forces withdrew to Taiwan, the end of Chinese opera seemed near. Most of the established singers remained behind the Bamboo Curtain. But then a tough air force general, Wang Shu-ming, be- 4The Saint' Divorced LONDON (AP) - Actor Roger Moore, star of the television series "The Saint," was divorced Monday by singer Dorothy Squires.
