Danger Mounts The danfjprous olements which have been present in Indonesia's politics ever since ii gained .sovereignty from the Dutch are coming more and more to the fore. Thus, Gen. Suyeng, apparently on ihe verge of bPinR forced from his job as chief of .staff, has been hard put to prevent the rise of what could amount to a Communist police force. The Communists long have been campaigning for arms for an organization called Perbepsi. Those are the initials of a group civllcd "The Union of Former Guerrilla Fighters," members took pnrt in the underground war against the Dutch in prcsovenrlgn- ty days. It is now a CommuniKt- dominntcd group and probably Communist controlled. The proposal to tirm this organization — ostensibly to fight the terroristic Dar Ui-Islam (State of Islam) organization, which seeks a totally Moslem state — has been supported for some time now by Defense Minister Iwa Kusuma- sumantri. But Gen, Sugehg has complained the minister was attempting to use the army as « political instrument. Could Brin* Crtain The Communists now support the government. For some lime they have been In a position where they could precipitate a crisis If they chose. They have not done so, apparently following International instructions lo Communists to pursue parliamentary tactics. Moreover, If the present nationalist govern tncnL full, It would likely be .succeeded by the Moslem Ma.sjumi, which has made It plain what It would do about Communists. In today's circumstances, it seems unlikely the Communists will make a definite strike for power In the immediate luture. They can remain wodclcd to the nationalists, whether the natlonnl- like it or not. The 1 danger in tndonewlii .seems to be Unit (lit* Cnnmumlsls ure pnlli-iHly .setting Ihe sUiKe for Ihe time when I ho .signal comes for them to attempt n takeover by "internal" ine»n.s.
