THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1DS9 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FTVE Dulles' Speech Didn't Clear Up Quemoy,AAatsu Question By JAMES M Alt LOW Associated J'ress News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — He didn't say yes and he didn'l say no. Thai sums up Secretary of State Dulles' reply to the important question: Will the Red Chinese be allowed lo have Quemoy and Malsu islands? For months the Eisenhower administration's position on that question has been vague. K was stiil vague after Dulles finished talking about it in a New York speech last night. extend to any other Chiang-held, But he talked dimly of the idea of letting the Reds have Quemoy Since he didn't make it off the cuff but had plenty of time to prepare it. his vagueness can be considered deliberate. Why? Either because the administration hasn't made up ILs mind, doesn't want to tell the Reds or wants elbow room for horsetrading. Dulles' words can be interpreted this way: 1. The United Slates tight- Dulles didn't say it would— to defend those islands if the Red Chinese try to take them by force. 2. If the Reds play nice, stop talking about invading Formosa and agree to a cease-fire, they may be allowed to have Quemoy and Malsu. Pledged Defense Chiang Kai-shek, American ally, has his main forces on Formosa and the nearby Pescadores Islands, 100 miles across water from the Red Chinese mainland. He has other forces scattered among islands close to the mainland. The United States is- pledged to defend Formosa and the Pescadores under n Senate - approved treaty with Chiang. As Dulles said last night, this pledge does not Islands. But Eisenhower could, if he thought them necessary to the defense of Formosa, defend the other islands. This power was given him In a .special resolution approved by Congress. He decided the Tachen Islands, 200 miles northwest 'of Formosa, were not necessary for the latter's defense. So last week Chiang with drew his troops from the Tachens and let the Reds have them. But what of Quemoy and Matsu? They're close to the mainland and on a direct line between big mainland ports and Formosa. In the hands of the Reds they could serve as stepping stones for a Formosa invasion. Dulles said: "The United States has no commitment and no purpose to defend the coastal positions as such." Then, almost wistfully, he wondered whether the Reds "might not renounce their efforts to realize their goals by force." And he added he hoped the Reds' announced decision to take Formosa was "not irrevocable." and Malsu merely for the asking. He said, "It Is doubtful this would serve either the cause of peace or the cause of freedom." Nothing, in so many words, was final in what he said. Store Manager Here Gets Citizenship Award M. M.
