(/p> — Gen; Chiang Chlng-kllo, cider son of Chiang Kai-shek, said today Formosa faces a critical 100 days. Ills statement, came as the Nationalist government officially announced Its troo'ps slill held Que- loy Island off the mainland port ot Amoy. Young Chiang, chief of the Defense Ministry's political section, said there were., Indications the Chinese Communists might have skipped the recently abandoned Ctiushan Islands and struck For^ mosa direct. Tills, he explained, was one of the reasons for the Nationalist withdrawal, which Chiang claimed would not only bolster the defense of Formosa but would pave the way for a Nationalist Invasion of the Red mainland. If the Nationalists weather th» next 100 days on Formosa, young Chiang continued, they should still be here next year. "In that period both the Internal and International situation might he changed drastically," he said. There was no doubt what Chiang mcanl—that World War III might break out and the Nationalists could find themselves on the side of and supported by Western powers. Might Declare War tin Hong Kong, the Standard, an independent newspaper, went so far as to predict Chiang might even declare war on Russia and thus precipitate the war.) As Nationalist forces on Qucmoy under Gen. IIu Lien held on to their tiny island, air headquarters announced warplanes dropped 118.- ODO leaflets on the mainland. The leallcts explained the Nationalist withdrawal from Chushan was brought about because the Islands "could not have been held indefinitely against the forces which Red Commander Clien Yi's Russian advisers were preparing to Ihrow against them." Hail schedules throughout Formosa were disrupted as the 150.000 evacuated Chushan defenders were "'•fppcd to training camps over (his big island. July Oct. Dec.
