Limitations ;,SHANOH.«--M»>—Chlnii is at a aew depth of confusion In trying to decide what to do about herself, The average American iu China, knowing China's needs and the United States' limitations, Is the oiost confused of al^ - China wallows in difficulties which set a record even for a cojn- try that is expert at getting herself Into difficulties. China !s divided more ways than between Nationalists and communists. China is hungry, yet much of Jier land 'and it never did yield enough to feed her) • is out of cultivation because of the civil war. China is dj?zy with inflation, printing presses cannot grind out enough money even by working day and night, China's leadership is so split that half the crises that beset her are simply ignored. Americans in China read of congressional debates centered on stopping Communism and wnndei ajiew how it can be done in this huge, crowded land without getting caught In collateral problems that might not be solved even with the expenditure of billions of dol- lirs. I'Most Americans in China feet j that Communism, like every other ] revolutionary movement in the; country's histor, 1 , was brought on ] by internal conditions whirl, the? j West always over-simplifies. They j feel thai, until those conditions are rectified, China Is doomed to turmoil and to one revolutionary move, client alter another. Renewed suggestions from Washington that the Red tide can be halted by more American 'money sounds to the average American in China like suggestions (hat the same old mistakes be repeated. i: There is also the problem, who will get the money? Chiang- Kai- sihek and the dispersed remnant of his Kuomintang government? Or LJ Tsung-Jen and his new regime, which has its eyes' on only one objective—some sort of peace with toe Reds? " Harold Stassen's recent suggestion for what he called a "MacArthur plan" for Asia has made the American in China scratch his head harder. Would that mean putting * few hundred thousand American troops in China to run ..he show— •iiid to intervene directly in the civil war? Or -would it mean another "Sttlwell affair?" A new American commander wO'jld be sub- Jwt to the same obstructions and frustrations as the late Gen. Joseph Sttlwell met during the Japanese ^»r. They are inherent In China for,any foreign leader who has a lotof money to ipend. :'WilI Uncle Sam take on a job like that on the one liand while cutting back his own military expenditures elsewhere? If It is decided to underwrite the. Nationalists and try to save the day that way, how about the Additional millions or billions needed to solve the tend problem, to feed the people while more war devastates the country, to stop inflation which | breeds misery and spreads Com- ibunism every day? ;-Will the United States step in *nd take over direction of China's filling commerce? Lack of trade will continue to nurture unrest and Communism uuti". restored. To that end, will the United States reorganize China's ports, which are so jammed and disorganized that they couldn't handle a good volume of commerce even if they got it? : Will the United States undertake all these things six y c a rs a fter abandoning extra-territorfality and becoming & rigid espouses of sovereignty? The American in China, who never had any stomach for Communism, has even less now that he has seen (he Pelping-Tientsin pattern: The autocratic, bureaucratic suppression of personal liberties, of the press, and of everything else that the Reds fear or dislike. No, the American in China realizes that Communism may mean the end of GETS DIPLOMA DESPITE BROKEN BACK—Thomas HlcVey.
