Transcript "iv curve that the' truth began to dawn. but even then, it took me ee long time' to really realize the treachery, the calculated cold-blooded intent of these' criminals who called themselves a government. And it was these crooks to whom America wees sending millions of dollars Worth of "aid" guns, bombs, teliiks. ''"inks, and ;i trickle of powdered milk. Enough for the Kuomintang.

Everything was made by hand. But Americans mighl do a little thinking. loo. The Chinese with their bare hands are building up a new nation, while the Americans with their tremendous in- eliisliial strength arc preparing to destroy mankind. The Chinese are nol afraid; they are jusl sorry. If America were nol preparing for war il she were not threatening (Tina al every point- -China could pul even more effort into construction, into building better homes for her people, into eliminating floods, into Stabilizing crops, into bringing in machinery and transforming their land I nun one of despair and poverty into one nl prosperity, enlightenment, a nation of scientists working for the enrichment of mankind. Bul America seems bent on war. So China will continue her construction despite Ann lira. She will keep on putting all she has inlee the betterment of lhe. living conditions of her people. Bul at thc same lime, she will never stop watching America. She will not tolerate any high-handed action againsl her sovereignly. She is not afraid, and her people' know how to light and know what ihey are fighting for. Anyone who came lo work at that factory could nol help but learn ibis. The' irresistible strength of New (Tina seemed to permeate everything, even the silent walls of the caves al night, waving black shadows and crimson reflections from the furnaces outside. Since then edl of China has been liberated, and she now has more regular factories day by day. Skilled mechanics and engineers are being trained. Though some places slill work bv hand, others are forging ahead still faster with machines while others are using machines in make machines. Il will not take her long. Al present I am winking on an animal-breeding farm in Inner Mongolia. Of what I have learned here I will only say the following: thai I was amazed to hear Acheson a responsible representative of the U.S. government -av that the Sm iii I nion was "annexing whole territories" of Northeast China and Inner Mongolia to herself. I have lived here two years. So far I have only seen one thing Russian, that is. ten Soviet stallions given lo our fill in for breeding purposes, along with apparatus for artificial insemination. Whal arc we doing with these stallions? We arc breeding the farmers' horse's and the Mongolian ponies, improving the horses of Mongolia. The' farmers come for miles around lo gel their horses bred. The- stallions were given to China under the Agreemenl signed last year an Agreement "I friendship and mutual assistance between China and the Soviel I nion. The Chinese' are free to use them where and as they see fit. The Soviel I nion deees nol interfere. To the peasants here, the Soviet Union is symbolized by these stallions sleek-haired, refined, bigger than anything they have ever seen before enul with no stud fees, lhe- silent eves of these ten stallions lell more tei the Mongolian horsemen than anv amount of insinuating speeches that Vcheson ever could. If ihis is whal is meant by being annexed by the Soviet Union, then they would just as soon! The) are nol afraid of wends: they only believe in wheel they see. And what do they see as far as America is concerned? Again, it is nol empty words of friendship which impress them. It is bombing planes, guns, and tanks given to the Kuomintang. In our farm's cornfield are two old craters from American-made bombs. No amount of speeches from American diplomats can erase' these holes, and the people do not easily leu get. CHINA WANTS PEACE The people of China weinl peace. The' people of the world wemi peace, including the people' eef \iniiiia. Though I suppose I bene been away loee long to still be considered a member of the American scientists, yel I personally slill feel as though 1 am one of you. I have written you to let you know eit least the slory of "tie of your members. One person ii'lu-iruj to work on secret projects. rcfusirfjMFvvork on war. of course. does no good, lint all of you al home united together have' ei very special strength in your hands. I only waul to seiv to vim: I si' your strength, use whatever vou can to work actively for peace and againsl war. As long as there is war. science will never be free. Are we scientists going lo spend our lives in slavery for madmen who want to disttov the world? At home one gels frightened. Listen, ing lo so much war talk one begins lo believe lhal if we do not prepare for war lhe other -iele' will, and then we will be destroyed. But now 1 have been living on the other side for some lime ami know for sure that Ibis is a lol of lies, that China wants peace and is working for peace with all sh,. has. She will never attack America, nor will any of her allies. If you people would only believe this, if vou could einly see for yourselves as I am seeing, then, I am sure vou would met hesitate for a minute to work for peace wilh every ounce eel strength you have. So long for now ami remember me lo whomever is there iheil I mighl know. Sincerely, i Signed i Joan Hinton, People s China June I. 1951. I'ajjc fil
