'Recognition of China Reds JWould Give Veto Powers ; The United Stales has rebuffed the • Chinese Communists regime in its bid : for diplomatic recognition. Its decision . makes sense. '. There are three practical reasons for ,; delaying recognition. None has anything 1 to do with the general policy issue of : whether the nation should take a step • that would be interpreted as "approval" j. of (lie Communist government • For one thing, Red authorities in ! China have demonstrated their inabil- : ity or unwillingness to protect American '•• diplomats in Communist-held areas. -More than that, they have on occasion even seized them and inflicted physical • injury upon them. Up to now no evidence j exists of a change in this situation. • Secondly, the Communists have not ; assured the American government or • any other that they intend to'respect ; China's present international obligations. Until it shows signs of honoring the country's agreements, it cannot ex-. peel speedy attention for its recognition bid. Lastly, the new Reii regime cannot j yet speak with authority for the whole ot China. The Communists currently hold just a little more of the country than 'did the Japanese at the peak of their offensive. Secretary of Stale Uean Acheson has made plain tlial unless the Communist ; government really controls Chinese territory and will observe international • commitments, there is no point in ex.', tending recognition. "We do not establish an embassry or legation in a foreign country to show approvaT of its government," he said recently. "\v« do so to have A channel through which to conduct essenliar governmental relations and protect legitimate U. S. interests." This cpuntry has agreed, however, to consult with oilier nations on the recognition question. And among those Groat Britain unquestionably wil see lc -to hasten the establishing of diplomatic relations with Red China. Britain's trade interests are the greatest of any foreigner there, and pressure is already heavy to create a more normal arrangement to safeguard that business. But because it is wigei 1 to preserve a solid ..front with the United Slates, Britain may accept a considerable delay. One prospect is that the United Nations might be i,sked to send a commission to China to determine whether the Red government or the Nationalist regime is the true authority. And there is a bare j chance tliut recognition might be accorded simultaneously by all North Atlantic Treaty countries. Barring a n unforeseen reversal of fortune for t| le Chinese Communists recognition apparently will come to them in lime. After that the western powers face an even tougher dilemma: What to do when the Communist government demands China's permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council. This seat carries with it the veto power. Added Lo KussiH's, it would almost inevitably mean more trouble than ever in getting decisive council action. Yet it. is difficult to see how the post can be denied to a government that will have been recognized as the legitimate authority in China.

Since disagreements are bound to arise ovei military policy, some spirit of compromise Is required of the armed services. The navm command itself had to enforce a compromise wlvn its aviation branch and .submarine branch fought over funds.
