SHARING By MAE Public opinion can have and already has had a big influence in shaping United States foreign policy, according to Mark Gayn, journalist, educator and lecturer, who only recently edited the Asia and Russian news department of Time Magazine. In an interview at Hotel El Tejon, he pointed to the fact that the United States relationship with Vichy France, notably Glraud, was changed to a support of DeGaulIe mostly through influence of newspapers tMkt pointed to the fallacy of accepting Vichy control. Mr. Gayitv who is author of an article on the Chinese army, appearing in the Collier magazine on October 30, declares that "China is now in the gravest kind of a crisis." The k Chinese army is the most poorly equipped army in the world today, he declared. He pointed out that the recruits must walk 700 or 800 miles to get to the front and often they die of hunger and fatigue before they get there or are unable to fight upon arrival. "Due to the unfortunate efforts of the Chinese propagandists of the Chinese government and the censors, we don't know what goes on in China," he maintained. Mr. Gayn believes that China «nd Russia will be the dominant nations of the Far East in the postwar era and that the Chinese will adopt a modified kind of state •ocialism, as there is not enough private capital or industries for it to be otherwise and that the government will have to give impetus to this development. "Then the industries will have to be controlled and supported by the government," Mr. Gayn analyzed. He thinka that India will not be In a position to be a dominant force in the Far East until a quarter of a century, even if it does receive its independence. He says that England's policy has S.U NDERS been to prevent industries from developing in India as England has wanted this field as a market for English goods. Mr. Gayn says that "as Americans we are almost without any news of what is going on in China since Edgar Snow left in 1942 and Agnes Smedley before Pearl Harbor," and "most of the information that is obtainable has appeared in books." The lecturer believes that England will be forced to give tip Hong Kong and that no one is, going to be in a position to argue with China after the war. He sees Russia and China as natural rivals economically in the postwar era. China is fully justified in feeling that the Allies have not .sent sufficient help to her. "but we must remember that China has been fighting 11 years. It has lust half of its country, all its industries and its people are starving." "But if we did give them equipment, tanks and airplanes and heavy suns, the Chinese Army would not he ready to receive them yet. The Chinese have not yet been trained to be a modern army. The Chinese do not have, as yet, a general conscription law; they have no adequate medical corps, no service of supply for the army. The Chinese must be self-critical and realize that there is room for improvement, if our help is to be effective. "General Stillwell is giving the best training that the Chinese. Army is getting today." Mr. Gayn is the author of a book. ".Tourney From the East," in which he has compressed some of his knowledge of the Far East. He was born in China and spent many years there. He expects, following his present lecture tour, to return to the East on another assignment, pending his final decision on this trip or another that is also being considered.

UP)— Eighty years of living have mellowed wiry little Al Jennings, but not to the point where he will accept with equanimity being portrayed as a man who robbed a train in Guthrie, Okla. "I never once robbed a train in Oklahoma," Jennings declared last night. "I operated exclusively in the Indian Territory, Arkansas and Texas." Jennings, who freely admits that during his younger days he engineered a few bank withdrawals without first making deposits and interfered now and then with the orderly movement of the transcontinental trains, was discussing his $100,000 suit against the Don Lee Broadcasting System for its August 7 "Lone Ranger" program. The Weber Baking Company, program sponsor, also is named defendant. For more than 40 years Jennings has been leading an exemplary life. He has written books, appeared widely on evangelistic and lecture platforms, and of late years has been acting in the movies and serving as technical adviser for western films. In his suit he asserted the radio program attributed to him crimes he didn't commit and damaged the reputation he built in later years.
