Therein lies one touchstone to 4,000 years Of turbulent Chinese history. Another is the fact that China has always had too many people and too little arable land. A third is psychological. It is not yet clear whether the proud Chinese are yet willing to take their place as in equal among equals in the modern world community. Beneath the surface changes wrought by the Communists, the Chinese remain Chinese —unwarlike (despite the hysterical rantfcgs of their leaders), Illogical, unrealistically egocentric. Instead of Confucius, it is the writings of Mao that are diligently studied for the magic formulas which will solve all problems, from increasing factory production to over* coming the "dragon" of U.S. imperialism. Greert Leaps Forwent* Of Backward The present Communist regime is often compared to the ChMn dynasty, which first unified the warring Chinese kingdoms in 221 B. C. Just as the totalitarian Ch'in ruthlessly stamped out all opposition, standardized the language and regulated weights and measures, so the Communists when ftiey came to power in 1949 set about standardizing the political thought and regulating the lives of 450 million human beings—now grown to 700 million. But the Ch'in, for all their cruelty, left China the legacy of unity and centralized government. It may be that the Communists, when they pass—as rney will—will be viewed as a. catalyst that finally rid China of its repressive landowning gentry and brought about industrialization. It is a law of history that a nation's interests survive its revolutions. The Chinese remember when they were the cultural and political overlords of less advanced peoples on their borders—Korea, Mongolia, Burma, Thailand, Viet Nam. Even Sun Yat-sen dreamed of the day when China would reassume this role. Ironically, the only nation that supported One-tourtvi of Mankind— - _ in its 1962 border war with India was Chiang Kai-shek's Taiwan. Ironically again, if the law is true, it Is not America but Russia, holding vast lands once belonging to the Middle Kingdom, who has most to fear a clash with an aggressive China. Traditionally, however, the Chinese have believed it is their superior virtue and culture, not arms, which is their strength. And this may be a hopeful thing as her former tribate- bearers go through their own. struggles to enter the world as independent nations. The coming years will demand great fore- bearance and wisdom, coupled with measured firmness, on the part of the West—a patience to match- the fabled patience of the Chinese. In recent months, China's subversive "diplomacy" has suffered reverses around the globe. The old Communists realize they must soon pass from the stage and are afraid and distrustful of a new generation in the wings. The last chapter in the story of China, this unique and most ancient of civilizations, is far from written. THE END House Porks Panel To Try Anew Effort To Report Out Park Bill WASHINGTON (UH) - The House Subcommittee on National Parks plans to try again Monday to report out a bill au- horizirvg the Ouadalupe National Park in West Texas. Extensive hearings and subcommittee field trips have been held and made on the proposal. So far. however, snags have developed over whether to permit mineral development within the I park area. National policy prohibits such activity. But some of the mineral rights owners in areas to be taken into the park boundar- ;ies contend their holdings are ! valuable. j The Interior Department so far has contended they are practically worthless. In trying j to reach a solution and report (the bill, the subcommittee will i meet behind closed doors.
