1WBLTB BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER WBWS WEDNESDAY, JANTJARY H, IWi Reds' Capture of Formosa Might Isolate All Eastern Asia By JAMES MAR LOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — If the Red Chinese captured Formosa they would not onl break the American defense line in the far Pacific but might go on eventually to isolat ati eastern Asia and drive American forces back to Hawaii. The Chinese Communists' capture of Formosa would not endanger the United State ip the sense that, once there, they could launch an attack on this country. The danger to th United States would be long range. There are three reasons—military, political and psychological— for the Eisenhower administration to announce American determination to defend Formosa from attack by the Chinese Communists. The American defense line-—intended to keep the Russian and Chinese Communists from grabbing another inch of Pacific territory—now runs down the east coast of Asia this way: From the Aleutians through Japan, then to Okinawa where this country has a big air base, on to Formosa and then to the Philip pines. This country has close tie with Japan, with Chiang Kai-shek' Nationalists on Formosa, and wit the Philippines. Below the Philippines, and lyin off the southeast coast of Asia are the big but scattered islands of Indonesia, where the Commu nists have been seeking power, s far unsuccessfully. 220 Miles When the Japanese made war o: IT'S A POSSIB!LITY-Dr. Walter R. Dornberger, .missile expert, told the Chicago chapter of the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences that in 10 or 15 years rocket-propelled airliners traveling 13,000 rnph are a possibility. This is an artist's conception of what such a rocket airliner might look like. Dornberger is a former general in the German army. this country, they struck south a the Philippines from Formosa which they then held, and move down on down to Indonesia. Formosa is about 220 miles fron the Philippines, about 350 fron Okinawa, and about 700 from Jap an. If the Red Chinese got For mosa, Jet bombers would menac America's defenses and its allie north and south. The Reds might not have tc make a military attack on thi Philippines or on Japan. Theil prestige in Asia would soar. Thi will of the Japanese and the Fil ipinos to resist Red Chinese pres sure from within and without migrr' weaken, if not at once, then later. The Communists in Indonesia would also be strengthened. Unless the United States carried through on its pledge to defend Formosa against the Chinese Communists it could hardly maintain in the eyes of Asians its present position of Western leadership. And if Japan. Formosa, the Philippines and Indonesia should fall to the Communists, tills country's defense line in the Pacific would be forced back to Hawaii All eastern Asia would be under Red control.
