Couri«r N*w» - Friday, May M, MM- Pa|e ThrM One-Fourth of Mankind <»> V^T.™.^-D.^ Chiang Kai-shtK ToKeS over- Can you not tee that a country of 459 million ptoplt.. . cannot be tubjugated? —Chiang Kai-thtk Sun Y»t-sen, assured by Russia that it had no subversive intentions, agreed to a formal alliance in 1923. Chinese Communists, who had founded their party in 1921, were ordered by the Kremlin to join the Kuomintane. Sun sent his young chief-6f-staff, Chiang Kai-shek, to Moscow to study the Red Army. Sun died in 1925, his dream of a renewed, reunited China unrealized. In 1926, Chiang launched his successful Northern Expedition against the warlords. Then, ilarmed at the growing influence of the Communists, he took the decisive step of his career. In April 1927, his troops seized the Red stronghold of Shanghai, instituting a reign of terror. CWing, now virtual dictator, purged Nanking, 1937— Japanese Troop* Fem/i a "Greater East Asia* the Reds from the party and the major cities. Among the hard-pressed Communists, th» voice of one man began to carry weight. Contrary to Stalin's work through the industrial proletariat, which did not exist in China, Mao Tse-tung began organizing the peasants in south China, redistributing the land and building bases for a guerrilla army. In 1931. the Chinese Soviet Republic was proclaimed in Kiangsi province, with Mao as head. Also in 1931, Japan began forging its "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere by invading Manchuria. China could do little more than appeal to the ineffectual League of Nations. But to Chiang, the Japanese were "a disease of the skin" who could wait; the real enemy was the Communists—a "disease of the heart"—whom he continued to smite. In 1933. he launched a major campaign against Kiangsi. About 80,000 Red troops broke out to begin the 6,000-mil* "Long March" to Yenan in the northwest. Only 20,. 000 of. them finished it. . . A real sense of nationalism was beginning to infect the Chinese. Increasing impatience at Chiang's appeasement of the Japanese "dwarfs" and of his civil war against the Communists culminated in the "Sian Incident" in 1936. Chiang was abducted by his own generals and released on his verbal promise to form a united front with the Communists. The Nationalist-Communist alliance was short-lived, however. When war with Japan came the next year, both side* fought each, other as much as the invader. . Into this situation came the Americans with a war to win and billions to do it, and full of illusions about China, communism and peace.

They identified him as Edward Neeley, who said he was beaten by a gang of Negroes and shot at as he fled. Police said they could not confirm any shot had been fired and added Neeley apparently left the area after getting first- aid treatment. The incident occurred shortly after police broke up a gathering of 150 juveniles, reported throwing rocks at cars in the heart of Watts, where rioting last August took 34 lives. Police said the crowd gathered along 103rd Street shortly after a brief demonstration in a nearby park, where about 80 persons gathered to protest the death of Leonard Deadwyler, 25. He was shot May 7 as he was driving his pregnant wife to a hospital. A similar demonstration Tuesday on the eve of the inquest preceded several hours of violence in which two newsmen were beaten by Negroes wielding pieces of lumber. The Deadwyler inquest, which opened Thursday was adjourned to today after a crowd which overflowed the hearing room became unruly. Police remained on the alert as the hooting, jeering spectators, who had traveled several Daily Record miles north to the Los Angeles Civic Center, dispersed and returned to South Los Angeles. Soon small crowds began to gather in Watts and, as night came on, grew uneasy. Twenty policemen were dispatched to 103rd Street at reports of rock throwing. They marched up the middle of the j street, giving the order krdis-j perse.
