Aging Father Image Towers Over Each of Two Chinas §y ROY E&OYAN ! TAIPEI, Formosa (AP) — An aging father image towers over j «aeh of the two Chinas. /ranee's efforts to estabiisn * diplomatic relations with Rco j China have focused world atten-! tion on these two leaders of China, arch enemies for decades. , Nationalist China's Generalis-' *imo Chiang Kai - shek. a »Hm' and ascetic 73, still rules his Island stronghold of Formosa 100 miles off the China coast I with firm hand. Communist China's party chief Mao Tze-tung, a round and moon-faced 70, is the unquestioned father of Chinese communism, the historian, Marxist theoretician and military strategist whose word is law for the 700 million people of mainland China. Both Mao and Chiang appear j healthy and show t. sign of ] bowing off the world stage. j Beth men art past their prime, i The struggle to which they have I devoted their lives — the es-1 lablishment of China as a world j power to be reckoned with —! probably will have to be carried on by their successors. Chiang and Mao, however, have towered over possible successors for nearly 40 years. Their mantles — and the total i power they wield — probably could not be passed on to any \ single individual in either coun- ! try. : Diplomats and scholars in Hong Kong and Taipei expect ! Red China to remain rigid and i uncompromising in its relations ' with the outside world for the! foreseeable future, except inso-' far as changes may suit its purpose. Nationalist China is expected to continue leaning on the United States for its defense while depending less and less on American economic assistance as U.S. aid is gradually phased ; out. ; Seme •*p*r»* h«r« feel the men who follow Chiang and Mao may work out some form of 1 compromise settlement. "Chiang is Nationalist China > and Nationalist China is Chiang," one European diplomat here said. "If Chiang goes, Nationalist China can't survive j for long as an independent en-! tity." ! But opinion is divided on this 1 point. Much depends on the personality of the men who follow Chiang and Mao. The choice is limited. Red China's Premier Chou En-lai, a posed, serious and persuasive statesman, is the only vddely traveled and worldly member of the Chinese Communist hierarchy. But at 66, Chou is considered the No. 3 man in Peking, after Mao and President Liu Shao chi, the thin, solemn-faced Communist organizer and arbiter of Communist morals. Mao has designated Liu as his successor.
