THE WORLD TODAY:
United States gets itself in a spot
by refusal to recognize Red China
By JAMES MARLOW
Associated Press News Analyst
WASHINGTON (API—Now you
see it, now you don’t.
The United States gets itself into
a spot that looks like a game of
magic with its persistence in re-
fusing to recognize the existence
of Communist regimes which ex-
The latest example is with the
East German Communists. Before
that it was with the Chinese Com-
The Red Chinese drove Chiang
Kai-shek off the China mainland
and to Formosa in 1949. The
United States, allied with Chiang,
has refused for nine years to rec-
ognize the Chinese Communists as
the rulers of China.
There is no reason to think
Chiang will ever get back to the
mainland or that the Red Chinese
regime will collapse, or change,
in the foreseeable future.
But the United States refuses—
officially—to recognize the Com-
munist government in China.
Yet the United States has been
forced to deal with the Red Chi-
nese, first, starting in 1955, for
the release of American prisoners
they held. There w»ere many meet-
ings between American and Red
Chinese representatives on this.
More lately in Warsaw the
United States and Red China,
through their diplomatic represen-
tatives, have been talking, so far
fruitlessly, of some way to bring
peace to the Formosa Strait area.
So, while we don't officially rec-
ognize the Red Chinese, we deal
The same thing happened with
the East German Communists.
There is no doubt they’ve been
puppets for their Soviet Commu-
nist masters. The United States
has refused to recognize the East
German Communist government.
But last summer this country
had to negotiate with them for
the release of nine U.S. Army men
who accidentally landed their hel-
icopter in East Germany. The
men were released.
Now the Russians seem to be
forcing this country into further
dealings with the East German
Reds, and on a far .larger scale.
The Russians announced they
plan to withdraw from East Ber-
lin, leaving it in the hands of the
East German Communists, and
insist that the United States, Brit-
ain and France withdraw from
i West Berlin.
The three Western Allies refuse
| to get out. But. what happens if
! the Russians withdraw? Berlin is
110 miles inside East Germany.
The Allies and West Germans
there can be supplied overland
from West Germany but only on
rails and roads that go through
If the East Germans decide to
blockade all such overland supply
traffic, the Allies can hardly hope
to send trains through, armored
or otherwise, since the East Ger-
mans could block the rails with
An Associated Press story from
Berlin said the idea of pushing
a tank-led supply convoy of trucks
over the East German highway is
even more ‘ nightmarish."
The reason: Soviet Military
forces in East Germany, which
overwhelmingly outnumber Atlan-
tic Pact divisions in Europe,
could cut the highway at any
Instead of trying to supply
West Berlin overland, the Allies
might try an airlift. That worked
in 1948-49 when the Russians used
a land blockade. But it worked
only because the Russians let the
Western planes through.
If now the East Germans,
backed by the Russians, decided
to shoot down any planes flying
supplies to West Berlin through
East German airways, the result
would be unpleasant, to say the
The United States. Britain and
France have been studying an al-
ternative idea for accepting East
German control of transportation
to Berlin on a nonrecognition
There is a limit, however, on
how long the West can continue
to do business with Red regimes
whose existence the West con-
tinues to refuse to recognize.

the topic “United Fund," was

The Picture Has Changed
But The Spirit Abides...
"*■ ----- ■
It is a far cry from the scene of the first Thanksgiving to the
festive tables in modern, streamlined homes at which we
celebrate the holiday today. But, basic to the proper obser-
vance of the Day is the same spirit of devout thankfulness
for the blessings vouchsafed to us by a Divine Providence
. . . the same steadfast dedication to maintaining those
freedoms for which the founders of our country braved the
hazards of the New World.
