The Red Conquest of Hainan Island To Solve Severe Economic Problems By SKYMOUll TOPPING feeding the population, the Chinese SAIGON, Indochina— In Hainan Communists inherit an enormous island the Chinese Communists, J 0 * 3 °^ rehabilitation. After the war (he Chinese Nationalist officials almost wrecked the Industrial fonn- the Chinese have acquired one of the potentially richest regions in east Asia but one which for the present will only add ;o their .severe economic problems. The Japanese made a comprehensive survey of the big south China si and while they were occupying it during the war. They founrt.that Its ml Hern 1 wealth niny rival that of Manchuria -and Sinkiang. China's far western province. Hainan has high-grade deposits of iron, tin, copper, manganese, lead, silver, con!, graphite, antimony, and tungsten. These have hardly been touched. Hainan also can produce rubber, pineapple, sugar cane, quinine, coffee and coconuts. With industrial development. Hainan could become one of the few Asiatic regions capable of support- Ing a larger population. Lenders on Hainnn say the 2.500.000 population could be' tripled without straining the Island's resources. But now Hni- nnn has to buy about two thirds of Its food elsewhere. And the Communist mainland ha-s famine m- stcnd ol surplus. Besides the immediate problem of hold a private session, the spokesman explained. The spokesman pointed out that under the UAW constitution insur- - gents could appeal to thi union's That did not mean'Reuther would executive board. ; •, dation of Hainan built by the Japanese. Their remarkable record of inefficiency, corruption and sheer vandalism ended only a year ago when Gov. Chen Chl-tnng took over. On a visit to Hainan In January, t found only about 12 factories still operating of 170 left Intact by the Japanese. Port installations at Hoi- how, the capital, and the excellent harbnr and naval base of Ytilin were neglected. The Japanese had built a new railway. The Nationalists had sold the rails for scrap. Governor Chen had only begun to repair the damage done by his pre- decessors when the Communist Invasion began. He had restored some of the iron mines. There is little prospect the Communists can begin to exploit Hainan's resources soon. Most of their limited capital probably Is earmarked for north China and Manchuria. The Communists also may hesitate to risk capital on the Island because It would be too exposed should a general war come to the Orient.
