China Policy...
To the Editor:
THE FAR EAST should be con-
sidered with the same import-
ance as other areas. After all,
Communism is a global problem.
In the nations of Asia, there ex-
ists great strategic importance,
much potential manpower and
many vital raw materials, all of
which would be crucial in the
event of an all-out-war. Granted
that the cost of a strong far east-
ern program would be consider-
able, it should be remembered that
we are spending a great deal in
the European program. In com-
parison to Europe, only a trickle of
fmilitary and economic aid has been
given to Formosa. Yet those who
favor limitations or reductions in
the European program are labeled
isolationists, while those who favor
increased aid to the Nationalists
are regarded as desiring an ex-
parded -war.
The United States policy toward
China has been a long succession
of blunders. It began with the
Yalta agreement which enabled
Russia to get control of Manchuria
for the benefit of the Chinese
Communists. Another blunder was
our failure to supply a miltary
mission in China to coordinate and
improve the efficiency of the Na.
tionalistuarmy, as we did in Greecs
and Turkey. Trhe Marshall mis-
sion was a ridiculous and totally
unrealistic approach to the prob-
lem. In seeking to unify the Na-
tionalists and the Communists we
were playing directly into the
Communists' hands, since Com
munist infiltration into the eas

European governments led to their
downfall. Chiang should be com-
mended for turning the program
down. After Chiang refused to go
along with Marshall's program,
the U.S. added insult to injury by
cutting off all aid to the National- C
ists for nine months. When the n
military aid was resumed, it camex
too slow, 'too little and too late r
to save Chiang.
If we fail to help free China, r
within the next several years seri-e
ous consequences may occur. First,
Chinese soldiers may be sent to
invade such important countries t
as Indochina, Malaya, India andr
Japan. Secondly, a complete con- 1
solidation of Communist powert
may eventually occur in China.I
Thirdly, in the event of World War
III, Russia would have additional
manpower from the Chinese, part
of which could be used in Europe.

Dining Classroom . .
To the Editor:
T HE DAILY series of articles on
Ann Arbor restaurants hasr
been very interesting. In the con-1
luding article, Francis C. Shie,1
manager of University Service En-
terprises, is quoted as saying "The
dining room is as much a part of
the educational process as the
This can be used to argue, as hea
does, in favor of forcing students
to pay for Residence Hall meals
regardless of whether theymeat
there or not, so that economies of
mass buying and cooking can be
passed on to students. It must be
equally educational for students
to eat out with their many friends.
1They should be able to do so with-
out being subjected to the penalty
of paying for two meals while in-
creasing the food waste because
their appetites take them out of
the dorm. Many educational dis-
cussions take place over a restaur-
ant meal. A broad social relation-
ship should take students away
from routine habitation of dorm
living. Meal time is a grand time
- to enjoy a different meal and to be
y with non-dorm friends.
It would be much more educa-
- tional to allow Resident Hall stu-
e dents the freedom of eating where
e they please with whom they
- please. Instead, these students
t must conform to narrowly regi-
mented eating schedules and food
that receives similar preparation
day after day. The students should
be allowed to eat in different
places in order to avoid the tire-
some routine of scheduled eating
of scheduledly prepared foods. This
could be done easily by signing up
for meals a'weeknin advance.
From the University's argu-
ments, however, it appears that
their dining rooms fear allowing
students their natural freedom of
choice. If the Resident Halls just
serve half-way decent meals they
would not have to worry about
most of the Ann Arbor competi-
tion. University mass buying pow-
er would still be far greater than
the local restaurant's and econo-
mies still maintained. The object
is not to make money on the din-
ing rooms, although there has
never been proof that a profit isn't
The point to be made is that
students should be allowed their
choice in eating their meals. What
objection could there be to insti-
tuting a policy where the student
is not penalized for eating out?
