W1NTY.SIOHT ALTON IVBN1NO TELKORAPM THURSDAY, JANUARY II, 19* Moo May Be finding Reds Tough Traders TOPPING HONG KONG, Jan. 12 UP -The unprecedented stay of Chinese Communist leader Mao Tze-Tung In Moscow Indicated today he I finding the Russians tough bar gainers. Exactly four weeks ngo he lef China for his historic conference with Stalin- Leaving his countr at a critical time, Mao arrived In the Russian capital Dec. 16. He I still there. Customary procedure for a high level International conference in Moscow Is for senior members o a mission to remain only n lew days. Then (hey leave subordin ates behind to iron out details. Does his prolonged stny mean he is finding the price asked b; the tight-fisted Russians too high' That is the opinion of experts here Veteran China observers thing Mao went to Moscow primarily to seek bndly needed economic ai( for red China. That, he left his country at this time underlined the urgency of his mission. He likely is requesting relic from the Manchurlan barter agreement. Concluded last sum mer, it rails for Manchuria 10 provide agricultural products to the Soviet. Union in return for manufactured goods. .It has caused resentment In food-short China. Reliable sources say even normally food-rich Man churia cannot now meet the export quota for Russia. North China, although plagued with famine, has been asked to make up the heavy deficit. The result: New anger has been stirred up against the Russians. Some observers say the Chinese Reds must have large scale economic help If Internal conditions are to be Improved fast enough to consolidate them in power, Reports from Inside China picture it as an economic quagmire. There seems to be little prospect the reds can pull themselves out unaided. What Stalin Is asking In return for such aid will affect the whole course * of events in Asia. But Stalin does not hold all the trump cards. New ones have been given Mao by British recognition of his regime, by President Truman'i "hands off" declaration on Formosa, by the possible emergence of an Oriental Tito in Japanese Communist leader Sanzo Nozaka. Stalin needs Mao's help for Soviet aspirations in Asia. The Russians will try for maximum control over the future development of red China. The use of China and large overseas Chinese communities will be sought to spread Communism in southeast Asia. Moscow probably will want a firm commitment to rule out Chinese Communist flirtations with the western powers. (More than a week ago Mao told a Tass correspondent he was in Moscow to work out agreements with the Russians, including a treaty of friendship, alliance and trade. There has been no progress report since.) Mao probably has requests ol Russia covering more than economic issues. Robinson Paper's Founder Dies ROBINSON, Jan. 12.

Inventor Plans To Unveil First Robot Elephant In carrying out the Land Reform Program the Japanese government purchased more than 4,500,000 acres of land from former land owners for resale to the Japanese farmers. Finland's worst fire of this century recently destroyed that country's biggest lumber yard, on the Island of Karihaara in the Gulf of Bothnia, sawn lumber already sold for export being a major loss. THAXTED, England, Jan. 12. )—Inventor Frank Stuart is about to ,unvell the world's first! robot elephant. t Driven by a gasoline engine, it walks at 28 miles an hour, flaps its ears, waves its trunk and can carry eight persons. In order to avoid frightening the village folk the ersatz jungle monarch walks by night. To- comply with the road laws, it has its own license plates, headlights and tail lights. By day, Stuart keeps it in a locked shed. Stuart, who is a maker of stage scenery and carnival masks by trade, hopes the demand from carnivals alone will keep him in orders for years. Then there's grand opera. One scene of "Aida" calls for a number of elephants as part of the background. Live ones have been used in some super-productions but they are untidy and unpredictable. A robot pachyderm would be much better. "Why," Stuart told reporters, "I'll bet I sell 500 of them in America alone."
