AP Newsfeatures Hong Kong — A government order has forbidden one of Hong Kong's most widespread but least popular forms of transportation, pillion riding on bicycles.

More than 1,000,000 persons live in overcrowded H o n g Kong, which has only 10 lo IS buses. To take care of the overflow, there arc bicycles, tricycles, rickshaws, pull-bikes and even sedan chairs. Only the pillion type has been banned, but this apparent clis- criminantion is unofficially explained by these reasons: Some cyclisls have made a practice of robbing their passengers, and vice versa. Most bicycles do not have lights nor even bells. Cyclisls operated at breakneck speed to increase their fares. Anyone can rent a bicycle for about $1.25 U. S. a clay and could make at least So U.

By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Fore'ign Affairs Analyst Come Christmas time, your columnist's mind refuses to stick to its job of analyzing foreign affairs and starts wandering back through many Yulctidcs spent in divers land — so if you don't mind we'll just gather by the fire-side Jor a while and chat. You know I'd hale nol to believe in Santa Claus — he brings so much of cheer and peace and goodwill. He's just as real lo me today as he was when I was iive— and never mind how long ago that was. I'll tell you how much I believe in him — I'm going to hang up my sock tonight by the big fire-place along with my two youngsters, and I'll bel a bright new penny Santa won't forget. I've seen Christmas in some queer spots: In the front line trenches with the troops — in the Far East — in Bethlehem of Judca by the manger of the Christ child. But perhaps it's natural that the strongest memories should be those ol Christmas in the old manse ol Lhe Vermont village where Dad used to preach. We always had a while Christ mas in those days, with snow so deep thai sometimes one had to tunnel a way through it to get oul of the house. Sleigh-bells jingled body in those parts ever had beer merrily on all the roads, for nobody in those parts ever had seer one of those new-fangled inventions called the horseless carriage Christmas was a community affair. Every year we used to have a great tree in the church, and iht. whole village and country-side turned out for what was more thai jusla day of prescnnls it was to celebrate the birthday of the Christ. There always was prayer o thanksgiving those Christina; nights, and the members of thi congregation contributed thei part, for we still were in the hal lelujah days. Some of them could be a bi austere, but they were a pastor — the "elder" they used to call him — his gifts were likely to i sat**! The grand, warm hearted folk. Christmas tree was loaded prciicaU of everybody. As lor the consist, largely of farm produce and .were delivered at the parson age, since many of his parishion ers were tillers of the soil. Most of the Christmas cards depicted scenes in color from the life >f Christ, chiefly those relating to Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Those hildhood pictures linger in one's mind, and one of the grealesl Measures I ever experienced was lircc years ago when I was able 0 spend Christmas in Jerusalem and Bethlehem, and found thai nuch of the atmosphere of those Id pictures still remained. With , bit of imagination one could see 1 full parade of the incidents so Jear to memory. Christmas of days long gone cally did represent peace and goodwill. Bui it would be a mis- .ake to think that this spirit was peculiar to a past generation and hat the world no longer has it. Mankind can get awfully tough at .imes, but we mustn't forget vhat .his is nothing new. It's been that way for thousands of years. And ;ny guess is that there is a greater percentage of good-will in Ihc world today than ever before. I don't know how many countries I've traveled in during the pasl thirty years, but they represent a big part of the globe. And taking it by and large, my experience has been such as to give me vast confidence in my fellow men — despite the wars and revolutions which I've seen at first hand. It's difficult not to acquire that confidence when you've had impoverished peasants offer to share their last crusts with you, when you've had a stranger risk his life for you in a dark hour of revolution, when people whom you've never met before have asked you to join in thcii Christmas celebration because they knew you were lonely. Yes, I think this is a pretty grand old world — barring a :'e\\ rough spots, of course •— and it'.s Celling beller every day.

This will be done under a technical definition of a clause in the Chinese-Soviet pact concerning ' Dairen which says: "in peacetime, Dairen is not included in the sphere of efficacy of naval base regulations determined by the agreement on Port Arthur of Aug. 14, 1945, and shall be subject to military supervision or control in this zone only in case of war against Japan." - The phrase "in peacetime" is the catch. Technically, China and Russia are still at war with Japan until a peace 'treaty, is signed. Despite the fact that two American correspondents who visited Dairen aboard a U.

Statesmen Are Indignant Over Red Ultimatum Washington, Dec. 24 —f.'Pj—Sena- tor Stewart (D-Tenn), declaring "we've been entirely too easy" with Russia, today urged a thorough investigation into the "verbal ultimatum" which forced an unarmed United States Navy ship to leave Dairen. Stewart referred to the edict which sent the vessel, on a routine courier mission, hurrying irqm the Manchurian port after receiving this warning from Russian military officers: "Unless you leave within 20 minutes we will not be responsible' for the consequences." Commenting on a Dairen dispatch in which Scripps-Howard Reporter William H. Newton told of the incident for the combined world press, the Tennessee senator told a reporter: "This is a mailer which ought lo be gone into thoroughly. J will be much interested to see what the Stale Department and the navy have o say." The Sate Department has been silent pending an official report from H. Merrill Benninghoff, the American consul general at Dairen. A spokesman said that if the report is not received shortly, efforts will be made to speed it up. The only navy comment thus Jar has been an acknowledgement that the landing craft described in the Dairen dispatch had left there lor a U. S. base in Chia last Friday, the day the ultimatum was issued. "Russia ought not to have been allowed to enter Manchuria in the She said she wants to be a loan, i first place," Stewart declared.
