By Walter Brl«» NEA Special Correspondent HONG KONG —(NEA) —An elderly, unobslruslve little man who recently slipped out of this British crown colony for Chinese 'omnnmlst territory may become Ihe next leader—In name, at least —or one-fifth of humanity. He Is Marshal, LI Oil-sen, 64- year-old former warlord, who aspires to the presidency of the Communist proposed "coalition 1 government, for China's 450,000,000 people. Around New Year's Day the marshal qultely vacated his apartment on the side of the peak above Hong Kong harbor nnd boarded a ship—variously reporter! to be Soviet, British and Filipino. His arrival In Communist North China was heralded fn a broadcast by the Communist North Shcnsi radio. Li's name headed list of 45 non-Communist "demo cratlc" figures who, having statement of current situ- rived there. Issued a our opinion on the ntion." The Communists, who soon may exercise most of Hie political power in China, are likely, many observers believe, for president. The marshal! sees to support himself a?

He believes that this group j a "third force" can share the ?overnlng of China with the Communists. But the way LI talks places him very close to the Communists, and many observers .hlnk he has been completely .aken In by the, Reds. The Communists have strong rea-son for building a "coalition" facade rather than filling the na- ;lon on an all-out Communist ^asls. Such a government might attract greatly-needed technicians, engineers, administrators and the like who would shy from partlcl paling In a straight Red regime.

W) — A shipment of eight-two Ion rollei bearings from here to IJmuirfen Holland, brought to light the story of an uncompleted Dutch steel miil that has been wandering over Europe for 10 years. The Royal Netherlands Bias!. Furnace* and steel works, for whom the bearings were made to order here by SKF Industries, Inc., twice has been moved—lock, stock and bearings; once 340 miles from Holland to Germany and now, back to Holland.

Today's Russian Not Sad, Brooding Bur Is Optimistic MOSCOW U'l—'riif traditionally sad, tea-drinking, brooding Russian —ol Dostoievsky, Chekov and others—has disappeared frotn Soviet writing and drama. Today the typical Russian is an entirely different fellow. He Is optimistic, cheerful, hard-working and. confident about his future. He drinks his tea, but he doesn't dre;un over it. He's never a mystic, but R realist. Ami he doesn't wear a beard. 'I'tic Soviet, woman ol 1949 has a j ,<orncwhat longer dross than she did at this lime last year, but her skh'i.s arc certainly nothing like the models of Paris and Fifth Avenue.
