Mr. chase has bee i the United States for serera vears and is now awaiting pajspor to return to Korea. In an interview several week ago. he said that he believed th Christian people of Korea would no tolerate Communism. He Is expected to speak on mis sion work in Korea. The public I invited to attend this service JAKAaTA—The world's youngest republic—the united states of Indonesia—is trying for a second distinction. She would like to be the world's most neutral nalion According to the stands they have taken on the Korean war. all other Asian countries can be sorted roughly as either Russian or Amer lean sympathizers. Indonesia, has carefully avoided lining up on either side. Government officials sighed with relief that the six-month-old republic never became a member of the United Nations, it we had joined the U.N., they reasoned, we might have been forced fr» » 3 i- ft r r^ i\ 10 tan.e sides on Korea. Indonesia was led Into her neutral position by Indian rnme Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. On a state visit here In June, he pleaded in a dozen speeches for a "third neutral lorce as a balancing power in the srowmg struggle between Communists and non-Communists. ^y strict neutrality, India and Indonesia might show the wav oward peace, Nehru said.

The indies' chief Allied bases in World War II were Biak ami Hollandia in Western Nm- Guinea. Future status of western New Guinea was not settled last year at the time independence was grantee! to the rest of Indonesia. The ami was left in Dnlch hands, and Holland and Indonesia were to negotiate a settlement before the end of 1050. As neither has given up claim to Western New Guinea, the next round of negotiations in Holland next August are nlmost certain to i end m a deadlock. Then It is likely that the problem will be thrown t the U. N. for solution.
