MISSION TO WASHINGTON:
Mme. Chiang Seeks Aid
Truman announced he will re-
ceive Mine. Chiang Kai-Shek, but
he gave no hint of his attitude on
new aid to China.
He told his news conference that
a date has been set for a meeting
with the Chinese Generalissimo's
wife, but declined to say when it
is. Mme. Chiang flew to Washing-
ton to plead for new American
backing for the Nationalist Gov-

TRUMAN ruled out any idea of
dispatching General Douglas Mac-
Arthur from Japan to advise the
Chinese in their struggle with the
Chiang is reported to have
asked for an outstanding Ameri-
can commander. Asked whether
MacArthur would go, Truman
responded: No, period.
Word went around tonight that
Mme. Chiang would be received by
Mr. and Mrs. Truman at Blair
House, their present official resi-
dence, when Mrs. Truman returns
from a trip.

However Congress does notl

have to be approved by it.

Despite Madame Chiang Kai-
Shek's desperate mission to Wash-
ington it is very doubtful if any
change will appear in America's
Chinese policy, Prof. Russell H.
Fifield of the -political science de-
partment said yesterday.
"Only an overwhelming surge of
American public opinion in favor
of additional aid could alter the
present government policy," he
PROF. FIFIELD spent almost
two years in China after VJ day
as a U.S. Foreign Service Offi-
"The United States has suf-
fered a major diplomatic defeat
in China because of the over-
whelming Communist successes
against the U.S.-supported Na-
tionalist government," he em-
However, it is not as serious as
would be the triumph of Commu-
nist forces in France or Italy after
our gigantic Marshall Plan out-
lays, Prof. Fifield added.
THE COMMUNISTS will soon
gain control of all China north of
the Yangtze River, he predicted.
This area he said, along with Com-
munist-dominated Manchuria in-
cludes some of the most potential-
ly, important industrial sections
"The cost of saving even
what remains of Nationalist
China south of the Yangtze, is
prohibitive in view of our vast
commitments in Europe," Prof.
Fifield -said. Chiang's govern-
ment has already received more
than three and one-half billion
dollars in U. S. aid since 1941,
he pointed out.
"If Russian power remains west
of the Ural Mountains for some
time to come, we may expect to see
a primary change in American
over-all policy because of the de-
terioration of the situation in
China, according to Prof. Fifield.
"Japan, Okinawa, Formosa, and
the Philippines, the islands that
rim eastern Asia, will replace
China and southern Korea as the
centers of American strategic di-
plomacy in the Far East, he pre-

THERE ARE FEWER job open-
ings in Ann Arbor now than there
were three months ago, though
the trend may be reversed in
January, according to Lawrence
Hamberg of the State Employment
Service's local branch.
This downswing in job possi-
bilities is interpreted as seasonal
but more job seekers are veterans.

NEARLY 2,000 MORE people

The gain represents the number
of new telephones in use. But the
directory is thinner, because of
the new format.
