THURSDAY APRIL 8, 1954 BLYTHEVULE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGI INDO-CHINA-The World's Oldest War By Walter Parkes and Ralph Lane CHINA 1-BURUA 2-PHIUPPIHE IS. 5-TKAILAND 4-MALATA S-IKOONESU C-CH1NA The Chinese Communists — and, of course, behind them, the Russians—are after tndo-China. Just what is Indo-China and why is its fate important to the remaining free countries? Indo- China, half again as large as France, ho? been o French colony since early in the 19th Century. It is important to the free nations because it is the key to all southeast Asia. _______ If Indo-China falls to the Reds, Malaya, Burma, Indonesia and perhaps the Philippines will be a soft touch. The Japs did it in '41, using Indo-China as a springboard. Southeast Asia is a prime source of rice (world's No. 1 crop) rubber, tin and other critical materials. I The Communist grip on Indo-China followed a familiar pattern. The Reds simply infiltrated a native nationalistic movement, gradually took it over and warped its aims from simple independence I to becoming another Kremlin stooge country. Until f recently, row terrorism was the chief weapon.

PO//O Vaccine Endorsed By Pulaski Doctors LITTLE ROCK (/P)—A new anti- polio vaccine, which will be administered to children in Arkansas' five most populous counties, received yesterday the "earnest endorsement" of the Pulaski County Medical Society. "The intensive research which has gone into the development of the trial vaccine and the thoroughness with which it is being tested for safety attend to the caution that guides the administration of this program," said the society in a statement. Apparently the statement was in reply to recent reports that the serum, developed by Dr. Jonas Salk of the University of Pitsburgh, is unsafe. Dr. J. T. Herron, state health officer, said today that the state has no intention of dropping its plan to co-operate with the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis in testing the vaccine. Tests are to begin in Pulaski, Jefferson, Craighead, Sebastian and Mississippi counties as soon as the serum arrives, probably within a few weeks. Fourth grade pupils in the counties will be inoculated with the vaccine if their parents consent. Dr. Salk previously tested the vaccine in Pittsburgh. China kept the secret of making silk from the rest of the world for 3000 years. DO CRAMPS give you that monthly look? Why lit till-Uli ralstiy, "niiw" stio* In your §ytt?
