Declares C o u n I r y Is United SAM FRANCISCO, July 19 (UP) —An optimistic picture of (he ''winning" war which Chiang Kai- shek is waging against the Japanese from tiic new "West China" ha's been painted here by Dr. p. C. Chang, member of the Chinese People's Political Council. > Just tack frain'..four months spent In Chiang Knl-ihek's west China stronghold, Dr. Chang declared thai it was only after China's 'withdrawn! to the west, •'militarily speaking," that China began to gain. While , outlining in delatl the heavy war of altiltfon Hint is being svaged from there, Di Chiang spoke freely of the new armies, plans, changed methods of warfare and technique with which Chiang Knt-shek's cxperU launch a flnnl counler-ofleiislve in from one to-three years. "It was only niter t»ic Chinese nimles were together in l\ie new West china, that, Ihe Chinese were able to choose the time and place for their military engagements," Dr. Chang declared. Confidence Declared Itislng "The world should now understand why the Chinese, militarily speaking, have every right to be more confident thnn they were six months ago. "In the past five years, Chlnn has become united ."The Chinese nrmy today number some 2,400,050 troops—about one-third larger than. when the war started. "One-third of this force hns been sent back to opomlc behind the Japanese lines, one-third is meeting" Japanese offensive, am! one-third is nhcady in training for the counter-offensive that is iji Ihe oning " Only as regards the time of (hi.? counter-otfcnslvo, did Dr. Chang •iefiise to forecast. '', \ "When the counter-offensive Is Smning," he- said, "I do not know. \ "There is no such thing ns occupied areas hi China, but only occupied points and lines — and most of these lines become untenable when the s\in goes dmsn. - "China today chooses to fight at the places nnd times which she feels aic Ihe most advantageous lor her. \ ' The Chinese are no longer fighting lo ictake villages and cities. They are fighting » war of atjrillon—a war lo deciense the manpower, equipment nnd resources of the enemy. It Is Ihe same kind of warfare lhal Ihe Allies employed on Ihe Western Fiont during the thst three years of the World War. •"Tills is the second phase of Ihc wnr, v,ith no large battles except at points where the Japanese advance. . "The Chinese- arc fighting their way under one general command which shifts them about as the occasion dictates. The mobile forces are not independent guerillas, they are organized tioops "The signs are that the war will not lasl for moic than one to three years During all this period there has been and will continue to be a great migration of the Chinese people \\est\vnrd. *In this process China will complete its unification. Before the war, many of us had not even seen our western provinces Today we are roaming over this vast area and are building a .new nation in the west. We are doing two things at the same time —resisting and rebuilding. "Sight granaries have been set : «p, 200,000 refugees settled In the western provinces, IDO.QOO acres pf virgin land -. placed. under cultivation and the mining of salt reestablished. We are also manufacturing alcohol as a substitute for gasoline. Hostess lo liimco Club.
