PAOB BLITHE V1LLE (AKK.) OOUBIEB MEW* Russia Using China To Arm Indochina? By JOHN M. HIGUTOWKR WASHINGTON (.fl —'Slate and Defense Department 'experts said today Russia-made war supplies are pouring Into Indochina over a transcontinental Red railway system protected from Allied nlr attack because it cuts through China Officials said this gives no» s t r 1 k I n g power to Communisl forces In Indochina, and presents it new, sinister threat to Burma itnd Thailand. Informants said evidence that U» Vtetmlnh (Communists) were receiving Russian supplies was found In a recent raid by French and native defense forces on a Communist supply center. Allied raiders captured K tons of Russian-made mortar shells and four Russian "Mololova" trucks with gasoline engines, among other items. The presence of these 2ii-ton tracks at the Vietmlnh base of operations means that Ued forces in Indochina must now be regarded as far more mobile than ever and thus creates ft new degree of danger for all Southeast Asia, officials said._ These Informants declared that Phu-Iho, where the captured war materials were concentrated, Is around 400 miles from the Burma border and about 350 mUcs from the Thai.border. In the raid many other types 'of weapons and ammunition were also captured, including supplies of J^ench, 'American, British and Ja'- pnnese, manufacture, as well as Chinese materials. But interest here centered on the four .Russian trucks because of their possible strategic significance. The fact that they are in Indochina at all, responsible authorities said, means that the Red railway line and IndofchSnese 1 supply routes are functioning against all obstacles. v The last link of the rail line from the Chinese supply center of Nan- nlng In Kwangsl Province, China, to. Chen-kuah . on the Chlnn-Tndo- china border, a distance of 120 miles, was completed In' October, 1951. It was estimated to be capable of carrying many thousands of ..tons per '. month'. td Indochlnese Red Forces., But Allied leaders figured (hat any haulage of more than 80 miles from. the ' rail term in al to_ v ar ious VIetminh supply centers would be highly vulnerable to air attack. The French have uncontested use of Ihe air. -•When'Allied leaders learned thnt Red supplies Were piling up despite - repeated airraids, a large-scale rfc- connklssance In force, complete with artillery unit paratroopers, wa* ordered a few-weeks ago lo , smash the. latest y Red operation center In the triangle formed by the towns Fhu-tho,, Tuyen Quang, and Ven Bay. ~ It was regarded as a highly successful operation when results were analyied and captured material (dialed up a week ago, [ Officials here professed lo be as pleased by the maneuver as they were distressed by the evidence it provided of the flow of Russian supplies all Ihe way across Central Asia, Siberia and China to Indochina.
