Transcript Soviet Espionage (Continued from page 37) not have come forward to volunteer ■formation. "We haven't begun to tap that," replied Mr. Morris. "That is why we reacted so vigorously in connection pith what seemed to be reprisals taken against Mr. Black, one of our Fitnesses. You must realize that it is ■'cry difficult for an ex-Communist to POme forward. After all, he has to present a whole lifetime of unfortunate experiences for public inspection, to turn himself inside out, as it were, ancl "pe-nlx acknowledge things that are repulsive to him. That is a big decision pr anyone to make." Asked if the anti-Stalin movement B Moscow had softened the Communist movement here, Mr. Morris expressed thc opinion that it had not POne so in tbe slightest degree. "The nti-Stalinist tendency in Moscow," he said, "simply means that you have a Pollective dictatorship rather than an "idieidual dictatorship. The intelli- "(iiu operations ancl the international Iterations of the various Conununist rallies have not changed one whit, e"cept. possibly, to become more •ophisticated." "Mr. Morris," asked Mr. Hurleigh, "has the Immunity Act passed bv Congress to compel witnesses to testify proved effective in helping to handle subversives or others that come before your committee?" "It has not," Mr. Morris emphatically stated, "because up until six weeks ago, that Act was before the Supreme Court for judicial approval. Even when judicial approval came. the Supreme Court said specifically that it was held constitutional only with respect to witnesses before the Attorney General. Because of the contended doubtful constitutionality with respect to congressional committees, we are still having a difficult time using it." "I.s the FBI in your opinion having more difficulty keeping track of subversive's since they have gone underground?" asked Mr. Hurleigh. Mr. Morris replied that they naturally would have greater difficulty keeping track of them under such circumstances. "At the same time," he said, "I presume that the FBI is becoming more anel more efficient and is tuning its counter-operations in line with the sharpening of the activities on the part of the Communists." end Freedom's Fortress (Continued from page 51) 'hat permeates the ranks of United States officialdom in the Far Fast. It is -f-ie that the United States propaganda program has largely lost its ''■f(-( tie eness in Asia. It i.s true that the "eels have the trumps in their hands. **"t they can be defeated. In 1953, seven thousand overseas Chinese youths went to Communist •'lin.i lor their college educations. On fcs tour through tbe Far East that par, Nice President Richard Nixon Pecame interested in the problem of POviding a democratic education for Pe young people of Southeast Asia. '-' prodded the State Department and ''"i economic aid people into action. American funds were provided to '"''Kase classroom facilities on Formosa. American officials in Southeast pta began cautiously to make i "Own that students would be wel comed in Free China. The government of Free China was also prodded into relaxing its stringent securitx' regulations so that overseas Chinese could get into Formosa. Since 1954 the tide has turned. In that year, for instance, 1,200 Chinese youths in Hong Kong event to Bed China, while 800 applied for entrance to Forniosan institutions. In 1955 the proportion was reversed, only .SOO going to Communist China and 1,200 to Formosa. In 1956 there were 5,400 overseas students in Fonnosan colleges and universities, a growth of nearly ■10(1 per cent in three years! It is clear that given an alternative, the overseas Chinese xvill not go along with the Reels. The problem then is to provide that alternative. The alternative is to keep Free China on Formosa alive, a vital reminder that there arc Chinese' that still live in freedom.

If this can be blocked in 1956. the Free World can accomplish wonders before the Communist bloc xvill have another opportunity. And after this essentially negative aim is realized, there are other moves that must be taken. The people of Asia must begin to hear the Free China store-. Much of the responsibility must be ours. But Nationalist China has a responsibility also — to develop better public relations, to begin a "smile" campaign of its own to match that of the Chinese Reds. Ihe struggle for Asia is nearing a convulsive stage. It is presently being lost. But with imagination, knowledge of the facts, a willingness to depart from old ways, we may yet save the day. And perhaps the greatest problem of the Free World can be understood from an entry in the personal eliarv of President Chiang Kai-shek, which was made a year ago. Wrote Free China's President, "Relations between democratic nations are extremely tenuous; their views are widely divergent; their efforts are never concerted; their plans are disconnected; and their actions lack prompitude. As friends and foes are not clearly marked out, they mistake one for the other." Our basic problem in Asia is perhaps this: we still elo not recognize our friends. end Any book reviewed in the book section lor any other current book! supplied by return moil, postage prepaid.
