MOB TWO BI/JTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS U.S. Recognition Denied Chinese Communis: Forces Would Gam Prestige By a Nod from U.S. WASHINGTON. — The United States is wielding A small Rtick against the Communist Chinese government by failing to recognize It. But A high diplomatic authority says non-recognition can't last forever. In the long run, he says, the withholding oT recognition is not * powerful lever, U.S. recognition gives prestige and strength to a new government, but once other governments have accorded recognition, a nod from the U.S. would not mean so much as ft would now. By withholding recognition at this time, the U, S. hopes to make It clear to the Chinese Reds thiU it doesn't intend to accept on HII equal diplomatic footing any nation which doesn't fulfill its international obligation. The Reds' mistreatment of Angus Ward and other American citizens was enough in itself to disgust American diplomats. . To obtain American recognition, Secretary of State Ache.son lias said, the Chinese Communists must not only live up to their international obligations. They also must control their whole country, and tht Chinese people must at least acquiesce in their rule. For generations the American government has required that new governments meet those tests before they are recognized. Thomas Jefferson first formulated the viewpoint that recognition doesn't mean, approval—only that the U- S. acknowledges existence of the regime. "It 1s recognition of a set of facts, nothing more," says Secretary of State Acheson. "We may have thu gravest reservations as to the matter in which it has come into power. We may deplore its attitude toward civil liberties. Yet our long-range objectives in the promotion of democratic institutions may, in fact, be best served by recognizing it and thus maintaining a. channel of communication .with the country Involved." Recognition of a new government has advantages for both sides. That's the reason some other conn- tries are reported to be nger to recognize the Chinese Reris us soon as possible. It opens the channels of diplomatic intercourse. Before - recognition envoys of foreign powers have no immunity, no diplomatic status. They are treated like private citizens and can be of only limited use to the governments they represent. If an envoy of a country you don't recognize turns up In your country, you cnn deport him ns an alien Illegally in your country. . An unrecognized government can't be prosecuted before international tribunals in case it fails to live up to treaties/ and other- obligations. One government doesn't 1mve access to .the courts of another nation unless it is recognized. It • couldn't sue to enforce contracts and to obtain damages for confiscation of property. Under such circumstances, a government finds it hard to make loans or to write contracts for purchases. The authority to recognize a new government rests with the President. This has been standard procedure for many years, although at times it has been nrgued that the power was held jointly by the President and Congress. At any rate Congress must acquiesce, for no ambassador can be ac~ .credited until the Senate has confirmed him. In China's the administration has promised that the President would not extend recognition until after the State- Department had discussed the matter with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. In 1913. when the question of recognizing the new Chinese Republic came up, the Issue was hotly de- hated. A group in Congress felt that the President was delaying too Ions WEDNESDAY, PECEMBBK fl, Armed Robber Enters Second Little Pock'Home LITTLE ROCK, Uec. 21.
