MAIN FLOOR Heavy Toll of Chinese Taken by Communists Robertson Reports on Bloody Purge WASHINGTON Wi--As'st. Secretary of State Walter S. Robertson has told Congress the Chinese Reds, in "just about the bloodiest pattern that the Communists have followed in any country in the world," have killed about 15 million of their own people since 1949. Robertson, whose province is Far Eastern affairs, attributed this huge death loll to liquidations and government-ignored starvation. In teslimony on the State Department's budget request, made public by the House Appropriations Subcommittee Tuesday, Robertson made these points: 1--A basic American strategy is to keep powerful Chinese Nationalist forces on Formosa as a constant threat of American-supported military action against Red China. 2--On the mainland "there is a deep undercurrent of unrest and resentments t h a t would be glad to follow some other leadership if it iad the chance." 3--New outlets must be found for Japanese trade, including more: icccss to American markets, "or ,ve will inevitably .throw Japan nto the Communist orbit." 4--For an indefinite period "we must make a contribution toward MILLIONS OF PEOPLE in other parts of the world slill need »ome sort of help to keep thcmselve* either fed or clothed. Americans are continuing to demonstrate their friendship and win friends for freedom'by sending CARE packages overseas. Send a n o t h e r CARE food or clothing package today, end help those people ivho are struggling hard Id remain proud and free! . :Yonr CARE package today will help the pause of freedom everywhere in the world.. S*nJ your orJer through your local CARE offic* or through your Railway Expr*» offlc*. · Published as a public, service in cooperation with The Advertising Council keeping our allies strong," In ''Formosa and Korea we have an Army of just about one million men . . . a big reserve against trouble in Asia" but a. financial drain too heavy for these countries to handle alone. Robertson, who once served as President Eisenhower's personal envoy to South Korea, gave this sketch of Communist China from available information: The mainland had one of its worst famines in history in 1950. "Throughout that period the Communist government was exporting food, with thousands of people dying of starvation, to Soviet Russia in exchange for industrial equipment and military supplies." The best estimaie is " . . . t h a t including the deaths from starvation the .Communists have liquidated about 15 million people since 1949.". ,, · ' Iowa Students Demonstrate After Victory IOWA C I T Y Wl--University of Iowa students -did a little im prbmphr. celebrating in front 'of Currier Hall, women's dormitory early Tuesday before welcoming the victorious Hawkeye basketbal team. · · · .
