MONDAY, JIARCH 20, 1D50 ;BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Hard Times Seen for China's Red Rulers Asian Expansion May Be Slowed For Communists . By John M. Hightower ••'• WASHINGTON, March 20. Iflt— Diplomatic reports have convinced tdB^State Department officials that Cnma's Communist rulers are running into extreme difficulties in trying to consolidate their hold on the country. As a result, these officials believe that any Chinese Communist action to spread Red control into southeast Asia will be slowed down if not Indefinitely delayed. . This, in turn, gives the United States and other western nations a little longer time. They need i to complete their own plans for aiding the southeast Asian countries such as Indochina to put up a stout defense of their freedom from "Communist domination. U. S. Policy Outlined Secretary of State Acheson in a speech at San Francisco last week promised limited military, , to the southeast Asiarf countries. economic and advisory assistance He thus completed the outline of America's basic policy toward that non-Communist area of the world. The precise steps to be taken are now in the final stages of consideration, and decisions hy Aciies- on, Secretary of De'ense Johnson and Presicdnt. Truman may come fairly soon. One of the major Imminent developments is the delivery of a report by Phillip Jessup, ambassador at large, to Secretary of State Acheson, probably next Thursday. Jesaip returned here four days ago frflp a Far Eastern tour and his enervations are expected to have substantial influence on Acheson's decisions. Jessup to Discuss Trip After discussing his trip with Acheson, Jessup will talk It over with members of the Senate and House foreign committees. In the meantime, Assistant Secretary of State Walton liutterworth is understood to have reported to Acheson and other department officials on his recent meeting with Jessup and other American diplo- Flier Survives Plane Crash In Mountains . DENVER. March 20. W>—Dazed and injured, a filer staggered a mile and a half in 24 hours through a mountain blizzard after his piano crashed, killing the passenger. "I guess I'm pretty lucky to be here.", the pilot, Kenneth Milyard, 29, of Aurora, Colo., said from his hospital bed today.

When Milyard regained consciousness, he saw Lauridson was dead. ' Milyard's right arm was broken and blood was pouring from a cut over his eye. He put a wool sock over the cut and lay in a sleeping bag until the bleeding stopped. He walked through snow until nightfall, spent the night in the sleeping bag, and reached a doctor's cabin Saturday. He was taken to Meeker yesterday and flown to Denver for hospitnlizntlon. • some of China's suffering. Instead, State Department offic mats at Bangkok, Siam. The gist of Buttcrworth's report Is said to back up the Acheson policy line that success of Asia's quest for freedom is possible only if the Asian peoples, including the Chinese, reject Communism. A keystone to the Acheson policy is the argument that Communism is only a'new Russian Imperialism in Asia. Red's CWna Triumph In China itself, where Communists have achieved one. of their greatest triumphs since the Russian revolution, there are said to be^ncrcasing reports of restless- neJS ind discontent. Together, these arc'said to add up to a kind of disillusionment with the hopes many chines apparently had entertained, that a change of politics HIlltu lu „,,„„ llllaK m , ft SDrlc[l y and rule would mean an end to cash basis between the United shows: r 1.

Trade has been hurt too by the Communists' general disregard for the normal decencies of treatment, of foreigners, notably Americans. Crops Fail in East 2. There have been extensive crop failures and food shortages and millions of people, as Acheson told a San Francisco audience, may die in the months immediately ahead. .3. .The Communists still have millions of troops under arms and presumably Intend to keep them that way. This is always a drain on any nation's resources and may be an extremely heavy burden when those resources are weakended by other causes. China Forced Back Some officials here believe that Communist China, Instead of moving into a period of Soviet-like industrialization, is being forced backward into a more agricultural economy., For its part, the United States is developing a policy ^of-ifriendly sympathy for the Chinese people as distinguished from their rulers. In line with this, Acheson said last week that this government is prepared to allow trade on a strictly Portageville News By Mrs. Raymond Toombs Phone Eight Southeast Missouri bands, including that of Portageville High School, participated in a spring band festival at Maiden Tuesday.
