Transcript spent millions of dollars in persuading young overseas Chinese to go to Red China for their college education. At the same time they have alse> done everything possible to corrupt anel Weaken the overseas Chinese. Singapore, Malaya, and North Borneo have been flooded with opium, and these areas have now the highest rate of opium addiction in the world. In the important city of Singapeire the Communists now control two of the three Chinese language- newspapers; their infiltration of the private Chinese schools (there are 370 in Singapore) has been almost complete, and the Reds boast an "army" of 100,000 Chinese teen-agers, which can be called out at a moment's notice to strike, riot, anel demonstrate. Control of labor is almost complete, Reel-dominated unions causing a total of 575 major strikes in 1955, representing a loss of 969,000 man-days of work. Cancer Threatens Southeast Asia The Communist cancer in Singapore has spread out, infecting Chinese 'or hundreds of mile's in every eliri-e- Bon. Operating from bases in Singapore-, Reel agents have now almost completed the infiltration eif schools in '-ritish North Borneo. And in these operations the key weapon has been control of the press, of book publishing, and of all information media "'rough which the people might learn "if truth about communism anel the -nitli about Free China. But while the bunediate target is the overseas Chinese, the- ultimate aim of the- Heels is to control the- whole of Southeast \->ia. «y creating neutralism among the Chinese, the- Re-els plan to infect the- Malays, the Dyak tribes people, the- Thais, Loatians, anel Cambodians. For Neutralism spills over from one- group |o another, especially if the group first "ifected also is in control of economic "fe of a nation. Let us see just how successful the Communists have been during the S('vi-n years they have directed their Energies against the- overseas Chinese-. a"d, through them, the peoples of all Southeast Asia: Indonesia, the British-controlled areas, anel Burma either recognize Reel China or prohibit any pro- Free China activity. These- areas have a population of 108 million, including over six million Chinese. Thailand, Cambodia, and Laeis recognize Free China, but are' moving steadily toward neutralism. The t. 'acts Forum News, October. 1956 population is 25 million including approximately four million Chinese. Viet-Nam and the Philippines recognize Free China, and are anti- Communist. The population is 31 million including 1,200,000 Chinese. It is obvious that the Communists are winning Southeast Asia. Given the enhanced prestige that United Nations membership will provide, she can complete the neutralization of Thailand and Laos, which are especially vulnerable because of proximity to Red China. Both Singapore and the Federated Malay States are moving toward independence. Remember that 80 per cent of the population of Singapore is Chinese, anel 80 per cent of the Chinese are uneler twenty-one — many of them students in the Communist- dominated schools. There is still a chance that Singapore might be saved, but can anyone be*lieve the Chinese will not go Communist, legally and in an election, if Reel China becomes a "respected" member of world society? I have emphasized the threatened loss of Southeast Asia but it is obvious that Japan anel Formosa will be equally threatened if the Communists are allowed to pursue- their activities. In this summer's Diet elections, the- neutralists in Japan maele- impressive gains. Rearmament will be increasingly difficult, anel it will be- equally difficult to prohibit the Japanese from trading with Communist China. Japan has been crawling with cultural ele-le-- gations from China, and has sent its own quota of delegations to visit Mao's Utopia. There can be no doubt but that morale on Formosa has deteriorated as the threat of Red China's acceptance anel further recognition becomes more anel more apparent. The Nationalist government, never too gooel at public relations, is increasingly putting its foot in its mouth, is becoming suspicious and plain cantankerous. While desperately wooing the overseas Chinese, Nationalist China is continually alienating the pe'ople of Southeast Asia by its fearful application of security regulations. Chinese from Singapore, Hong Kong, e>r Bangkok who weuilel like- to visit Formosa, perhaps to invest in the island's healthy economy, must cool their heels for weeks before getting a visa. Every foreigner, including Americans, who carries a camera is increasingly suspect. A few months ago there occurred a typical example of poor public relations caused by Free Chinas fears, anel her increasing isolation from the rest of Asia. A British-owned airliner, unable to land at Hong Kong's freemently fog- bounel Kaitak airport, flew on to Tainan, an International Emergency Airfield in South Formosa. When the plane landed, fuel exhausted, it was surrounded by Chinese soldiers with drawn guns. For several hours the passengers were forced to remain in the plane, which became hot as an Typicol prosperous farming village in Formosa Page 5
