Senator Icnowland visited Kin- men Island, off the china coast, where communist forces of 10,000 men had attempted and amphibious landing and been repulsed with losses of 3000 casualties and 6000 prisoners. This action was under Nationalist Gen. Hu Lien. Although Kiumen had ben lightly defended, and the attack was covered by an artillery barrage from another island, Gen. Hn was able to bring up on e division of reinforcements from Formosa, during the night, and used tanks to beat off the Communists. Senator Knowland believes that Formosa could ue similarly defended from Communist attack if given a little more equipment and TJ. S- advisers. The loss of Formosa lo the Communists, he said, would mean that U.S. position on the Philippines and Japan would be flanked rind u. S. defenses on Okinawa threatened. Fined $35 H. o.
