For people of Asia do neit need an cus, much less an adding machine, ^s Forum News. October, 1956 to realize that the Communist bloc, plus the neutrals, plus the Arab bloc and some of the uncommitte-el nations. can ease- Re-el China into the United Nations. Some observers believe the first step may be a complicated maneuver to substitute India for Nationalist China on the Security Council, thus giving the Reds (me- more vital vote and influencing the uncommitte-el nations. It matters little what method is use-el. What is important is for the Free World tei understand the consequences and move swiftly to block Red China's admission in 1956. The unanimous resolutions of the House and Senate against admitting Red China to the FJN helped dispel some of the fear eif Asians, anel may even cause some nations now inclined to vote for Reel China to hold off for another year. But the- danger remains; the fear is still there. The effect of this fear can be seen in Bangkok,- where the Chinese language press, anti-Communist nine months ago. has made an almost complete shift to neutralism or outright support of Peiping. Or it is seen in the near defeat eil the' pro-West government of Japan in recent elections. It can be John C. Caldwell, well-known newspaper columnist, has been writing articles and books about < li i r■ ;■ since thc age of eighteen. An American citizen, born in China anel partly eelucuted there, he has served the Unite-d States Government for years as an expert on Far Eastern affairs. noted in the sudden emergence of fully-organized Reel cadres among the Chinese population of Sarawak, in British North Borneo. And it can be seen in the deterioration of morale on Formosa, in the increased anxiety of the Free Chinese. For if Communist China is admitted tei the United Nations, the "Two China" idea vvill become reality; trade restrictions will be lifted, recognition of Peiping b) other nations will inevitably follow, anel Free China's remaining influence- in Asia will be lost. Every move made by Red China in recent months has been aimed at creating a neutralism that will favor its goal of attaining the prestige anel respectability that United Nations membership will give. The latest in these moves was the invitation tei a number of American newsmen to visit Communist China. The- Communists have placed the United States in a difficult position. If we refuse permission for American writers to visit Re-el China, we will be damned by the- Communists and even by some of our allie-s. And if we waive present passport restrictions, we also run a risk. For many of the men who would visit Communist China are the same ine-n whose dismal repenting have created the mess we- are- ill today. How can we be sure that men who called the Communists mere reformers less than a decade ago, who did not understand the nature ol Nationalist China's problems on the mainland, will not again be deceived? Thus once again, as has so often been the case during the past decade-. Page 3
