Averell Harrlman's rush ulp to Tokyo. The matter Is' considered highly important because ii Involves American relations witli Britain. India and other-nations whic recognize Communist china. Also involved is Hie prestige of (he United stales among (he Independence - minded People of Asia generally. Marriman, President Truman's for- «ian affairs coordinator, returned ywtcrday from .Japan where lie discussed Formosa and oilier Far Eastern political issues with General Douglas MacArthur. He (old a ii"«s conference there was "no sign of any] change whatsoever" in American' policy toward the island stronghold I of the Chinese Nationalists.

MacArthur and Chiang both Is- tucd statements about the prospects 'or ultimate victory In the Far East. Both iairi nlso they had agreed an basic plans for the defense of For- jgjsa against any attempt at con(P"est by the Chinese Communists. ' The tone of these statements caused some speculation that American fwlicy was moving beyond the determination to defend against the Communists and into A new stage of close collaboration with Cliiang In the Far East. Chiang's Statement The enthusiasm ol Chiang's statement particularly raised apprehension In the State Department that MacAlthur might have Implied American political support lor him —something which present (J. s. policy as laid down by Mr. Trutnnn evidently do not call for. A major purpose of Harrlman's trip, it was understood, was lo talk directly with MacArthur about what had occurred and to reaffirm to him the strict limits which the president desires to maintain on American policy where Chiang is concerned. In general, this policy Is aimed at preventing the Chinese Communists from taking Formosa by conquest and at isolating the long- term Chinese conflict from the Korean war.
