The Allies have agreed to send back only the 83,000 willing to return. Chou's tirade was a quick Red reply to President Eisenhower's State of the Union speech Monday. Eisenhower said he was ordering the U. S. Seventh Fleet to stop "slneUling" the China mainland from possible invasion by Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist Chinese:•• '' Misliael J. McDermott, press officer of the State Department, said in a statement at Washin"'- lon: "This Is old stuff. This precise proposal was introduced by Soviet Russia as an amendment to the Indian resolution at the recent General Assembly and it was overwhelmingly rejected by the United Nations."

The question was',sharpened today by the air of high secrecy the White House has thrown about the nature of- any directive President Elsenhower has or will issue to put into effect MB decision on the function of the Seventh Fleet. The President said In his State of the Union message Monday he was "issuing instructions that the Seventh Fleet no longer Ije employed to shield Communist China." This rescinded that part of the original 1050 order by former President Truman neutralizing the situation between the Chinese Nationalists and the Communists by preventing ciiMor side from attacks. So far as is known, there has been no occasion up to now which invoked the Fonnosan defense instructions. No u. s. planes or ships have bod to fire upon any Red aircraft or vessels headed for Formosa. But- Ihe threat remains and may in fact be aggravated If the Communists choose to use the Eisenhower order as a pretext for offensive nction across Ihe Formosan Strait. It could have the effect of spreading sit least the air- Sfa phase of the Korean War far down the coast.' The prospect seems remoteAhat Chiang 1 Kni - shek's forces can launch any substantial action, either by nir or sea, against the Red-held mainland before late next spring-. However, Sen. Wiley (R-Wis) told his colleagues yesterday he understands Chiang will use planes he is getting from the U. S. to attack a vital north-south rail line on the mainland. "If Chiang has any strength at all, and he's getting airplanes, he will disrupt that railroad,", said Wiley, foreign relations committee chairman. If Chiang wanted to gamble, he could send part or all of his relatively small air force of piston- cnifined fighters, fighter - bombers and few medium bombers of World War II vintage on strikes against his enemy. But a few hours' flight northward in Mancburin are about 1,400 Red MJG15 jet fighters. Interception of the slow, propeller-driven planes by these Soviet-made jets could cause serious damage. A race is now being made to modernize the Nationalist Air Force. Perhaps 50 or so World Wai n veteran pilots are in the XI. S undergoing a complete jet training course. They will return to Formosa to train other pilots. They should be back and ready t jets for chliuiB, if needed, in the next 00 fo 90 dnys. The Nationalist Air Force wil get jet planes, but it is probable no F86 interceptors of the type usec to battle the MIGs in Korea. The assumption is that F84 jet fighters will be the core of Chiang's modernized Air Force. These planes are widely used by the U. S., but not against the MIG, a plane which outclasses the F84 in speed, rate of climb anrt maneuverability. Thus, even when Chiang yets these jets be still will be menaced by the threat of the Reds sending down MIGs to intercept his raiding missions.
