FACE EIGHT BLTTHEVILL1 (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, MAY 21, IfM Red Air Buildup Is Reported Near Formosa Fighters, Bombers Soid Concentrated Opposite Island By ELTON C. FAT WASHINGTON (AP) — Red China's air command is reported to have concentrated a substantial force of jet fighters and light bombers along the mainland coast opposite Formosa, seat of Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist government. That buildup apparently has been made since._the Korean War's end allowed diversion of air power from Manchuria. The Red buildup in Chekiang province consists almost entirely of MIG15 fighters and IL28 twinjet bombers, information reaching Washington indicates. Although the shift is receiving attention here, there was no indication today that officials were uu- duly alarmed over prospects of an Immediate move against Formosa. The redeployment appears to have been gradual, a part of a broader program which has sent even larger numbers of aircraft to fields in southern China, close to the Indochina border. The United States still is holding fast to its policy of promising sea and air aid to head off any invasion attempt by the Beds against Formosa. Dispatches from the Far East report Red air sorties over islands off the China mainland which have been seized and Held by amphibious forces of Generalissimo hiang with Nationalist planes challenging these Red air movements. But there has been nothing suggesting direct invasion attempts against Formosa itself. While Washington officials were reluctant to discuss details of the policy for the Formosan-China mainland area, the Indications are that strikes against the small off- *fiore islands currently held by Chiang's troops would not be considered a reason for involving U.S. ships or aircraft. Most of the island positions held by Nationalist troops now were taken after the United States enunciated its Formosan protection policy in 1950, at the start of the Korean War. Former President Truman at that 'time ordered the 7th Fleet to stand guard against aggressive attack on Formosa by the Reds — and At the same time toirestrain Chiang's forces from operations mgainst the mainland. When President Eisenhower took office, one of his first acts was to strike out the second part of that order. He ordered that the "7th fleet no longer be employed to shield Com- munnist China." The 7th Fleet, at approximately the lull strength of Korean War days, is.- still on station in the Far East, maintaining with part of its force patrol over the Korean Straits. The United States also has numerous planes within easy fly- Ing distance of Formosa.. Temperatures Will Vary The weather maps below give you the XT. S.
