'his: Are we willing to make a '' commitment to tin- Formosa land lev tin-ill BOMBARDMENTS FROM OUEMOY lln. isiwi.: I ibink your statement is based on certain assumptions that are really not true. You take lhe series of bombardments from Quemoy which were started l>\ tin- Communists on September 3. We found ourselves forced lo retaliate in order to destroy the bat- teries on tin- mainland. Now, Mr. Combs. I want to say this: No mailer whal you think of my gov- > ntine'iil or my people. 1 can assure von thai we're nol fools, we're not children. We do nol think lhal ihis "pinprick" business on lhe coast would get us back the mainland. Mu. COMBS: I understand. Dit. Tsianc: Neither do we think that we can control I S. policy. Win. for \eeii this is a momentous decision. It will be made after mature deliberation. \ little raid upon my governmenl here and there certainly would not involve you. We, ourselves, do not atiiileule- much military value to these coastal raids; and we, ourselves, do not think thai we single-handedly could by these "pinpricks" make any impression whatever. So. we mustn't despair. We want i" watch the mood of the people on the mainland. If our brothers on the mainland issue ill,' call lo us for help and they back up their call with action on their part, then we w ill go in. MR. BURT: Could the defense of Formosa by the United States in case of Communist attack lead to a third world war? Dr. Tsianc: I ibink not. The fight in Korea did nol lead to a third world war. I'm convinced that the Communists arc convinced lhat they can get the whole world and hold the whole world b\ a means much cheaper than a third world war. They have used cheap means. They'll continue to use- cheap means thai is. limited action, infiltration, sub- version, making tin- rest of the world fight each other stirring up trouble between soci.-d ,-kisses, groups in each individual country. I think they will ,-on- linue lo do that. BOMB NEW YORK OR MOSCOW? Mb. Garrto. : I don't think there will be any real third world war. all-out war. until one or Iwee things happen: either New York and our cities are bombed by the Russians or we leennle Moscow; and I don'l Ibink tin- latter is likely. Prof. Hodces: It's been completely denied lhal we're going in for preventive war, MR. BURT: Professor Hodges, do you think that the attacking of Formosa by the Communists could lead to a third world war? Prof. Hodges: I say decidedly no. Mr. Hurl, and I wanl to emphasize that thai issue ee;i- put up in Korea, and if we'd gone in and "on Korea, we wouldn't be asking these questions today. Tlie third world war will emu-. in my opinion, when the' Kremlin decides il cannot gel anything else and lhe issue is win or lose tin- world. That's a long time off. —Wide World Photo U.S. Air Force ground crews were busy pitching tents at a secret air base on Formosa. They were among the advance contingent of U.S. forces rushed into the Chinese Nationalist stronghold to ward off any Communist attack on the island fortress. Page 21 I
