VOL. XI,lit—NO. 2-1-1 Marshall Admits Frustration of U.S. Aimsin China ' Extremists on Both Sides Block Move to Establish Democracy H.v K. II. SKACKFOIU) (Uiiildl 1'rcss Stuff CnrrrcpoiKlruO WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 — Gc'l George C. Marshall In a blistering criticism of both Chinese Naiional- ists and Communist. 1 ; declared loday thai enrolls to settle China's internal strife had been frustrated repeatedly "by extremist clcmen-s of both sides." .Marshall assciieil on the cvo o f Ills iclurji (o (bis country thai (icucrallssimo Chiani; Kai-Shek's parly members were interested only in "preservation of their own feudal control" of China. ' The Communists, on thn other hand, arc thoroughly Marxist atui- nemocrntic. and arc dctermne.l ultimately lo impose a Communist form of government upon China Marshall said. Both sides, Marshall declared, arc hopelessly suspicious of each other Only China's as yet unorganized liberal groups can save the situation, he said. Marshall has been summoned home by President Truman nfter failure of his mission to bring China's warrin R elements together in a representative, democratic Bovorn- mcnt. Tic is expected lo leave Nanking by plane tomorrow. His return will signal a complete review of this country's Far Eastern policies. In a long statement released by Ihc Stale Department here, Marshall .said ostensible agreements b'- twecn Communists and Nationalists at a conference arranged by him .1 year ago could have put Chin-i on the road to internal peace. Bui Nationalist reactionaries and Communist extremists wrecked those agreements, he said The "salvation of Ihe situation,' Marshall said, would be assumption of leadership by liberals in Ihe government (Kuomlntang) and minority parlies. Liberals Lack Power But although the liberals are "splendid group of men." they stir "lack thc piSr™ else a control , shall snjd._ Marshall, "successful acti'on dor Chiaiif;-.s leadership would "lead to unity through good government." He expressed the hope that while China's constitution is being reorganized "thc door will remain open for Communists or other groups to participate if they .see nt to .i.ssiune Ihcir share of responsibility for th-' future of China." Marshall asserted that agreements reached at a political consultative conference a year ago between Chi- im's two warring parties were n liberal and a forward-looking charter "which then ottered Chiii.i a basis for [icace and reconstruction." "However, irreconcilable 'jroups within the Kuomintang Party (th/: parly of Generalissimo Chiang Kai- Shcki. interested in the preservation of their own feudal control of China, evidently had no real in- Icntion of implementing th-m " Marshall said. .The general said that although he spoke as a soldier, he fell he must "drplorc the dominating influence of (he military" within thc kuo- minlang party. "Tehir dominance accentuates thc weakness ol civil government in China,'; he .said. The tenor of Marshall's statement indicated a possibility that he considered his work ended in Chiiu Jiut his Ions; review of Chinas political affairs did not spccilc-jliv .say so. I'inds Suspicions Everywhere Referring to the "intricate and confused situation" of Chinese political affairs. Marshall said Ihe Iirralcst obstacle to peace lias been thc "complete, almost overwhelming- suspicion with which the CIViic.se Communist Party nnd the Kujmhi- tang regard each other." "At thc same time, in pondering Ihc situation in China." Marelm!) added, "one must have clearly in mind not thc workings of small Communist groups or committees to which we are accustomed in America, but rather of millions of people and an army of more than u million men." "I have spoken very frankly because in no other way can f hope to bring thc people of the United States to even a partial understanding of this complex problem," Marshall said. | He added he had expressed all the views made public today lo individuals in Ihe course of negotiations in China. "f express them now public!v." Marshall said, "as it Is my duly to lircsciil my estimate of the situation and its possibilities to ;he American people who have a dee;) interest in the development of '.on- dilions In the Par East promishi^ an enduring peace in lhc Pacin-V° Marshall said that on thc one hand. Chinese Nationalist leaders "are strongly opposed to a Communistic form of government." "On the other." he continued, "the Communists frankly state that they are Marxists and Intend to w-ork toward establishing a Corn- nninistic form of government m China though first advancing through Ihe medium of a demo- era lie form of Rovcntmonl. nf the American or British lype."

Fiscal Matters In Foreground For Legislators Governor Laney Meets With Budget Group; Revisions Necessary UTTLE ROCK, Aik.. Jan. 7. — i UP I _ Tlic lire-legislative Joint budget committee today aM>nrcnl- ly had a man-sized job cut for Itself In the five rlays left before the Ucnei-al assembly convenes here next Monday, Jan. 13. A jjood portion of tiint job was oulline,i yesterday when Gov. Ben Laney went before the committee and stated that a revision of much ot (he work they accomplished in December might be ncccsiary. The governor flatly recommended' 11 revision of the ILscal foundation of the state, and hinted thn I his plan might f;o so far as to encompass the .state's .sinking fund, some $1.- 500.0CO Hint could be placed in the general revenue fund as of July 1. Beyond that, Laney kept his secret program to himself. He did say. however, that the proposal "would be ready for early presentation to tlic legislature." and thai If l!:c j legislators work together to pass hi.s olan. "the state can fill critical neods without additional taxation." Highways Considered Separately As for the matter of better highways, the chief executive .said that his plan did not cover that major problem. He pointed lold the committee that he considered the roads in an altogether separate category, a problem In itself for which new revenues must be found. Gov. Lniiey gave another slight hint as to where .some of the needed money might come from . He referred to the $2,50U.OOO approved annual budget for the Stale Hospital for Nervous Diseases us "very liberal.'' "I believe yon could further reduce the appropriation and still not hurl the operation of the institution," the governor said. Then he added. "If and when we have efficient management at the hospital, we can give the patients there the care they need on much less money." Revisions Sanctioned The chief executive nlso sanctioned revised budgets.- entailing increases, for the Sialc Police, the Resources an_rt -Development Commission and the Revenue Department asked for $40.000 more. The revised budget, of the He- sources and Development Commission stood at $1,700,000. or about $500.000 less than was originally asked for. and some $1,200,000 more than was granted when the. joint committee first considered it. Laney indicated that he thought the higher figure more suitable for operations of the commission. ' Suoplemcntal and substitute request. 1 ; granted approval in a quick- moving session yesterday included S.1.00,000 already allotted to the Education Department for paying teachers' salaries: $29.000 for Arkansas Polytechnic College at. Rus- scllvillc; $11,000 for the State Training School fo r Girls: $37.000! for the Secretary of State; 52.500 lor the State Treasurer; and $1,200 for the Board of Cosmetic Therapy.
