WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, 1950 BLYTHEVtLLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS US. May Offer Arms to Chiang For Defense of Formosa Island PAGE THRM By JOHN M. HIOIITOWKR * WASHINGTON, Aug. 2. (/!'(—The Truman administration is consider- Ini? reversing its policy of no- arms aid to the Chinese Nationalists o n Formosa I n order to strengthen the defenses of that anti-Communist stronghold. A final decision by the State and Defense Departments nmi the White House Is understood to await Jjtommendations from C5en. Doug^ MacArthur, who conferred Monday with Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek at Taipei, Formosan capital. The government has already lak-' en one step designed to ease the (low of American arms to the Chinese Nationalists .An order Issued last week permits them to buy weapons through the Defense Department instead of having to go to the manufacturers directly ns they had done for many months. Responsible' officials said today Hint Chiang has an adequate basic s "pply of weapons for Ihe defense of (he Island but that he undoubtedly needs spare parts for repairs and also additional ammunition Chinese Needs Examined MacArthur and his staff are believed to have examined the Chinese needs. His recommendations are expected to cover the types of equimpent which should be sent, it U.S. aid Is resumed. Following his meetings with the Chinese lender. MacArthur said plans had been made to coordinate American and Chinese forces "the better to meet any attack which a hostile force might be foolish cn- oiitih to attempt." Pie Ihus presented the United States and Nationalist China as being, in effect, allies against n common foe. Chiang himself subsequently announced that MacArlhur and he itjfr! agreed on Ihe foundalion of •.WIe defense of Ihe island. Chiang •'bad offered 33.000 troops lo fight with tlie United Nations forces in Korea, but MacArthur turned that down as possibly jeopardizing the defense of Formosa. Appropriation AsKeri Presidenl Truman asked Congress yesterday for a special appropriation of $4,000,000.000 for arms aid to Europe and other Allied or friendly nations in addition to the billion dollar assistance program underway. Of the new sum, $303,- OCO.OflO would be spent in speeding up arms shipments to the Philippines and "other nations in southern and easlern Asia." Last January Mr. Truman declared a hands off policy toward Formosa, announcing that no military aid of any kind would be furnished. The announcement followed a decision by the administration, that from a strategic point of view Formosa was not- worth American military involvement to save it from conquest by the Chinese Communists. Immediately after the surprise J?ed attack, on Southern Korea However, the President drastically modified this policy. He ordererl the U. S. Seventh Fleet to guard Formosa against a Communist attack, on the ground that the outright aggression in Korea made it necessary to safeguard other non Communist areas of Ihe far east. Mainland Air Attacks He further asked Chiang to cease I air attacks on the mainland in order t o avoid incidents which might cause the Chinese Communists to launch an assault on Formosa current with the Korean fighling. Chiang complied, but Ihe Communists have continued to assert their intention to take over this island and also have been reported continuing to mriss craft necessary for the 100 mile sea cross- Ing. • Administration officials In recent weeks have assuerd Chiang that the president's -policies, which were primarily designed to prevent the spread of heavy fight-ing in the Far East, did not in any xvay modify his rights of defensive action. «w MacArtrmr's meeting with the leralissimo apparently has developed the p.olicy of American interest in the proleclion of Formosa n slep farther to the point where the government is actively considering measures to increase Ihe island's defensive power.
