MONDAY, FEB. 2, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Ike's Formosa Order Will Give Blessing to Commando-Like Raids By JAMES MARI.OW WASHINGTON IJf, _ president Elsenhower reportedly will tell the U. S. Seventh Fleet to let the Chinese Nationalists on Fomiosa attack the Chinese Communist mainland. This would not prevent the fleet from blocking any attempt Invasion. t Such n White House older to the fleet would be official blessing to something which has been going on anyway for more than a year on a small scale: While Chiang Kai-shek's main body of troops Is on Formosa his forces have been malting commando - like raids on the- mainland from 30 islands off China's coast. Even with the fleet pulled aside It's doubtful,Chiang could increase the size of such raids for some lime. His delcgale lo the United Nations, Dr. T. P. Tsiang, says large-scale-operations against tiie mainland could not be made for n year or two, and Ihey could be done then only with American help. At the same time an Associated Press reporter on Formosa wrote over Ihe week end that (he Communists ot present do not appear capable of invading Formosa, which is separated from the mainland by 90 miles of water. He said they could make air raids on the island and that Chiang, who has some planes, could no the .same to them. And (lie Nationalists who have some small boats, could help the U. S. blockade the Chinti ^(Coast If a . blockade should be undertaken. On Formosa Chiang has at the most 600,000 troops, not all of them ready or equipped for a full invasion of the mainland, He probably couldn't attempt it, when ready, without U. s. help. The unanswered question, even with the Issuance of a While House order lo the fleet, Is the unpredictable 'one: How deeply can Chiang get Involved In fighting the Chinese Communists without getting the U. S. more deeply Involved? The most Immediate effect of this reported first, get-tough effort of the Eisenhower administration may be more psychological than nnyfhtng else. It will give the Chinese Communists, who have been concentrating their forces and attention on Korea, something else to worry about. Since they Han't know whether this is Just the first of a series of American moves to end the Korean War, they can't tell where the next will hit them, The purpose of this, or any series, of-simitar decisions, would be to put pressure on the Communists to quit fighting. When the North Korean Communists invaded South Korea in June Jt,1950—no doubt with the'help and ^"blessing of the Chinese and Russian Communists — no one knew where they would strike nexl. So when he decided the U. S. should Intervene on the side of the South Koreans, former President Truman announced: "I have ordered the Seventh Fleet to prevent any attack on Formosa. As a corollary to this action I am calling upon the Chinese government on Formosa to cease all air «nd sea operations against the mainland. Tiie Sei'cnlh Fleet will see that this is done," But that was at a lime when Communist China had not yet itself intervened in the Korean War. Since then Chiang's men may not have made raids on the mainland from Formosa but have from islands near the China coast. Whether or. not the figures arc reliable, the Nationalists claimed that in the 12 months eliding last October their hit and run raids against Communist China had inflicted 41,727 casualties and enabled ttiem to capture 3,025 prisoners. The Formosa palrol of the Seventh Fleet, whether or not Eisenhower issues his expected order, has not been a complete blockade. The warships do not patrol the Formosa Straits daily. For months they have been making infrequent runs In the waters between Formosa nnd the Chinese mainland. Navy Trains Pilots for Big Transport BURBANK, C'nJif.
