These figures are based on the report of I he Industrial Development Department of the Abilene Chamber of Commerce, and includes the metropolitan area, two or three heavily populated sections touching the city limits.

WHITE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The real news about China's border trouble with the Outer Mongolians in the great western province of Sinkiang isn't so much that it has happened, but that we have heard about it. It would be hard to find anywhere in the world so vast an area ( as big as Texas) so remote, so redolent of a confusion of races and faiths, so habituated to conquest and misrulce or no rule at all. Th? Chinese Empire had Sink- Inng for hundreds of years and never sot it under full control until the great General Tsung-T'Ang. nearly a century ago. subdued it in a campaign which took years because his troops had to plant crops as they went along. Even today it takes a Chinese official three' days by air to reach the border region where the trouble with the outer Mongolians is reported taking place. In Sinkiang he finds a relative handful of Chinese officials, merchants and settlors ruling as a small minority among one to four millions of Plyoglol. tribesmen, <no one really knows how many) most of whom have racial connections in outer Mongolia or in Soviet Russia itself. This means trouble, internally and rvlong borders. Sinkiang has seen many revolts in recent years, and during one three years ago Chinese troops chased some' Kazakh tribesmen across the line into outer Mongolia—and they used planes, too. But it's all so far off that you just don't hear abdwt Sinkiang unless things get worse than usual or unless somebody has some "other reason" to tell you. As has been widely noted. Russia's "other reason" for letting her Mongol satellite get involved with Sinkinng would be part of her reaction to the Truman foreign policy. It's quite possible, as a Chinese spokesman says, that "this is no ordinary frontier incident." Meanwhile military observers in Nanking are remembering the many incidents in the past, and pointing out that no matter how serious this one is the Chinese are in no position to do anything about it. A Chinese Nationalist. Maj. Gen. J. L. Huang who is now touring this country, put the issue this 1 way In an address at VanderbM University: China's civil war. he says. "Is a war against the Communist design of world conquest . . .1 dread to think what shall happen to other democracies of the world, if one- fourth of the world's population should turn to be communistic; if one-fifth of the world's territory should be dominated by the reds; and if the entire amount of China's vast hidden resources should be employed by the opposite camp (the Communists) for the massacre of the human race and the destruction of human civilization . . ."
