"The one thing that would bring
the deepest sigh of relief in the
world would be the containment
of U.S. expansionism without
this country also returning to its
isolationisnmof the 1930's."
These are the words of the
noted China scholar Prof. Owen
Leds who spoke Sundayrs after
noon to a crowd of 2500 in Hill

gency Conference on China.
Speaking in addition to Latti-

Greene, in his afternoon ad-
dress, described China as a "con-
fident people." who have made a
remarkable recovery from the war-
fare of the 1940's and the dis-
astrous attempt at economic
growth of the Great Leap Forward.
He said China's primary inter-
est lies in the Viet Nam war, whose
outcome is crucial toatboth China
and te Uied Saes because
of its effects on the world posi-
tion of both countries.
China, he said, would enter the
war as a result of any of these
three developments: American
bombing of any Chinese cities, in-
dications that Hanoi was losing
the war, or U.S. invasion of North
Viet Nam.
Lattimore, who was attacked by
the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy,
who called him a leading Commu-
nist, criticized the "condescending,
arrogant" attitude the U.S. has
regarding the recognition of Chi-
"There seems to be a feeling in
this country that recognition of
China is a one-way street. That

The evening part of the confer-
ence featured speeches by Fried
and Lattimore on China's rela-
tions to the U.S. and American
policy in Asia.
Fried declared, in his address
that "whether our military men
admit it ornt, it s cii a
going on in Viet Nam, an ntil
they are willing to admit it, there
will be no end."
Fried said "the entire concept of
containment is a myth," because
what the U.S. is trying to con-
tain in Viet Nam is a "system of
ideas-the least containable part
of a culture." "Certainly the use
of military force'to prevent the
spread of ideas is ridiculous."
"The first way to end the war
is to recognize it as a revolution
and take it over." He advocated
stopping the bombing of North
Viet Nam and taking the troops
out of the south. Ideally, the Unit-
ed Nations could be called in to
handle the situation.
"Our present policy toward Chi-
na plays into her hands," he said.

that its recognition of China is a gift to be given out at its
pleasure. Felix Greene, speaking in the afternoon, said that signs

China to enter the war. Morton Fried, of Columbia, also assailed

Lattimore thought for a mo-

States had had as much economic
interest in China as Britain did
in 1949, we might well have recog-
