PXGE'14- THE BAYTOWfl SUN, THURSDAY, MAY 29, 1952 Editors 1 Roundtable: My New York Britain Continue To nize China? Despite the abandonment of British business Interests in Red China, a considerable minority of editors considers it likely that Britain will continue to recognize the Peiping regime, in an effort to maintain some contact and trade with the China mainland, especially through its crown colony of Hong Kong. But editors in a substantial majority consider it more likely that, after expected Peiping failure to compensate' for British industries, Britain will withdraw its recognition of Red China, agreeing with American policy that, for the foreseeable future, there is no hope of alienating Red China from Soviet Russia. SAN DIEGO (Calif.) TRIBUNE: "British business has abandoned 840 million dollars worth of investments in Red China. Business has written off those investments for good. Her Majesty's Government, however, will go on pretending. Policy will continue recognition of the Red regime ir. Peiping. ... It has taken several years for British business to learn the futility of the .policy, though its Govern-, ment still has the lessonUo learn. . . . The morality of continued recognition of Red China by the British - is something else." Today's Bible Verse FOR THE scripture saith, Whosoever be- lieveth on him shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:11. SALT LAKE CITY (UTAH) TELEGRAM: "British business representatives have been harassed, imprisoned and other wise persecuted by the Mao regime . . . Now that the British business community has at long last concluded that it is impossible to deal with Communists, diplomatic authorities might also bow to the facts . . . Actually there has been no diplomatic exchange. The Chinese Reds have consistently refused to receive the British charge d'affaires and have never named an ambassador to Britain." PHILADELPHIA (Pa.) INQUIRER: "Britain still has hopes for trade with Red China, but it will be on the same basis as trade with Soviet Russia. The deals will be made with the government, not with private organizations within the country. Mao will buy and selljbo further Communist imperialism, and for no other reason . . . The British have come up against one fact: You can't do business with Communists—except on Communist terms. This harsh reconsider their diplomatic, as well as commercial, reconsider their diplomatic, as wel las- commercial, relations ; with Red China." Washington Merry-Go-Round: Scientists Afraid H-Bomb With Fire NORFOLK (Va.) LEDGER-DISPATCH: "There is not much .realism in the suggestion by some British business men that they will continue to do business with China, though not in it. The ending of the operations inside China almost certainly will have a heavy impact on British operations in Hong Kong. . . . And the announcement in London that the change in the business relationship with China will mean no change in the diplomatic relationship does not carry much conviction. London may find it advantageous now to abandon this pretense at friendly relations with the-Red Chinese regime . . ." MIAMI (Fla.) DAILY NEWS: "London notified Pei- ping the decision was made by the business firms concerned—not by the Foreign Office, whose spokesman said Britain's one-sided recognition of Communist China would continue . . . The issue of -Hong Kong remains unresolved. Britain is badly in need of its off-shore commerce, and the future of Hong Kong will continue to be of concern ... It is not doing so well as formerly, though reportedly it is a Jekyll-Hyde character, the business is contraband supposedly banned from Communist China flourishing apace." ,-NEW YORK TIMES: "It is stated in London that 'the political status will not be'altered and that the position of trade in Hong Kong is not - affected. Both of these statements are putting a good face on a bad situation .. - British business in Red China has been harried to a point of virtual extermination A frank admission that economic ties are no longer possible may lead to the realization that political ties, also, are agreed to by the Communists for thejr own ends only and not for any mutuality of , interest." ST PAUL (Minn.) PIONEER PRESS: "It does not follow that the British will be proved wrong on either the economic or political score over the long run. Commercially the Chinese are cutting off their nose to spite their face . . . Historically, there is basis for the belief that the Chinese-Russian relationship will not be permanently what it is today. But for the immediate-future the prospect is that the Western Nations must deal with Red China as a potential enemy in many sectors as well as an actual enemy in Korea; and must assume that 'Red China is ..." a willing captive in the Communist camp."
