1« Conws Christ! CALLER-TIMES, Sun., Aug. 12, 1951 Fechteler Asks America 'Sweat' To Detour Reds CHARLESTON, W. Va., Aug. 11. (AP)--Adm. William M. Fechteler, new Navy chief, called on Americans tonight i to work until they sweat to save their liberties from the threat, of Communist warfare. "If rivers of perspiration can save one drop of blood, i then it is well worth while," said the recently-chosen Chief of Naval Operations. _--_--. _ "World communism has shown its hand," Fechteler said in an i a'ddress prepared for the West Virginia state convention of the American Legion. CHINA Continued from Page 1. communicatlonSi so that a cut rail- r 1 is a serious '15 to a provincial government, or even to the Peiping national Red regime. "It is all too obvious now that they (the Communists) seek to rule the world, and that only strength can deter them. Therefore we must be strong and re- Guerrillas have indeed blown up j )0 s ^ jg . few locomouves and robbed a few, possibil l ty for lh * munition cars but ail j'^'^'^jn, capitalize on weakness, are that the trams in Red China' r still run close to schedule, with no trRfs Strong;' America lines cut tor more than a f e w hours. It will be time to sit up and take notice when raiders start smashing * ,.i;-uads and keeping t h e m smashed--as the Reds UMid to do when they were guerrillas. The type of uprising conspicuous In South China lately appears to be mostly the work of angry farmers, getting revenge for a bad deal on land distribution or for the heavy "rain tax. Some of it also sounds like rescues of purge victims by relatives. Many cases look simple like the work of hungry people. Some Resistance Expected With all t h e i r revolutionary changes, the Communists wer« bound to stir up resistance despite the terror of the purge, A man whose number is up may as well go down fighting. The Com- nunlsts cannot stop this, but they caj beat down -desperate mobs, What they rto stop is guerrilla consolidations'in areas whore long- term resistance might grow and become a threat to their rule. They appear to have been successful in this everywhere except part of Yun- nan. The Communists know guerrilla tactics very well indeed, and they have wiped out most of the guerrilla forces left behind l.y the Nationalists. They also have wiped out-many mm-polltlcal b a n d i t gangs, something the Nationalists failed to do. From the Red view, the most serious item of recent resistance has been ft flurry of uprisings by Red militia garrisons in Kwangst Province. These have been p u t down one at a time as they happened This is where the Korean War becomes a factor, however. The Communists moved many reliable troops out of South China for Korea. Most garrison duty was turned over to militiamen, not too well confirmed in communism. If the militia system continues to backfire and the Korean War goes on for months, the Reds may iind their grip loosening In several southern and western provinces At present, however, most guerrilla operations add up to a, nui- 4 sane* to Peiping. Car Upset Injures Brownsville Man John Medina, 28, Brownsville, ·was taken to Beeville Hospital last night after n a c c i d e n t on the Orangedale road six miles from Beeville. Identification was made f r o m papers found on the man. He was still unconscious late last night. , The hospital is trying to locate his next'of kin. Medina's car evidently turned over several times. He was thrown 1 from the car and .sustained a frac tured tipper.arm^ concussion and '' possible internal injuries. "Our armed forces must be brought to adequate strength and kept at that strength as long as Communist military might is capable of threatening any part of the free world. "Regardless of the outcome in Korea, we cannot afford to drop our guard for one instant, because Jiat instant could well mark the death-knell of liberty throughout the \vorld. "To do this will require considerable sweat on the part of every American-. Our factories must pro duce the necessary arms and equipment for our armed foroes and for many-of. our free neigh- sors; our farms must produce food for America and for many of our starving friends." Fechtcler borrowed an old Chi' nese proverb to underline his message: "The more you sweat in aeace, the less you bleed in war." A Long Way To Go He said America has come a ong way toward greater military strength since Korea but still lias a long way to go. At the same ime, he said he believes that 'America Is mentally prepared for the formidable task that lies ahead." Then, warning against my relaxation, he said: "We cannot consider the winning of one skirmish such as the Berlin Airlift, or of one pitched battlo such as Korea as signifying inal victory in the overall strug- flo with world communism." Fechteler, who will be sworn In as Chief of Naval Operations on Thursday said he was "completely n accord" with the major policies established by his predecessor, the 'ate Adm. Forrest P. Sherman. He also pledged to "further in crease Navy cooperation with the Army and Air Force chiefs and :heir chairman, Cen. Omar Brad- iey. Tost to McCormlcfc Fechteler, who has been com- mander-in-ch!ef of the Atlantic Fleet, will turn over that post to Adm. Lynde McCormick In a cere- many aboard the carrier FranWin , Roosevelt at Norfolk, Va., Aug. 15. President Truman chose Me. Cormick to succeed Fechteler. Admiral Fechteler,. in his speech iere, warned -that Communist leaders are able by propaganda to key their people up to.a fighting pitch. . ' "It. is my ·understanding," he said, "that the masses of people in Communist-dominated countries having access-only to the Communist version of every event- are Just as convinced of the righteousness of their cause as ara the peoples of the free world. This has been found to. be the case with the Chinese and North Korean Reds. Being so convinced, they can and do fight just as hard and rebound just as far after an initial setback as can the people of the free world, other "things being equal."
