In Spite of Directives,
Empty Shelves

"Mind If I Make A Suggebi on?"


A REPrJ RT concerning actix ties of Uni-
ted States Information Service libraries
abroad has just been issued from Berlin,
with the result that the question of what
books by what authors are to stay on or be
removed from USIS shelves is more confus-
ed than ever.
Despite a State Department order that
books on foreign affairs by Vera Micheles
Dean, editor of the Foreign Policy Associ-
ation's publications, a book by Walter
Duranty, detective stories by Dashiell
Hammett and books by forty-three others
could be restored by the libraries, library
personnel have not yet returned any of
the previously banned books to USIS
shelves. 1
'As one spokesman in the High Commis-
sioner's office in Bonn said, books such as
those by Mrs. Dean and Mr. Duranty con-
cern "the Russian honeymoon" and are "no
longer in line with our foreign policy."
Apparently the Administration cannot
make up its mind whether it is more im-
portant that certain detective stories and
other books which they deem "subversive"
and dangerous to the good name of the
country be removed or whether the inter-
national furor raised over the book burning
question toward Republican policy in gen-
eral should be calmed down.
The Administration's confusion has
been reflected in contradictory statements
issued periodically to the press. On June
11, the government announced that works
of twenty "controversial" authors had
been purged from USIS libraries. Then
on June 14, President Eisenhower made a
speech at Dartmouth College denouncing
book burners. Early in July, Robert L.
Johnson, retiring head of the Interna-
tional Information Administration, issued

a new State Department policy to the ef-
fect that only books which promoted the
"Communist conspiracy" should be remov-
ed, not those that were merely "contro-
versial." After this announcement, -the
State Department said some of the form-
erly-banned books could be returned to
the sheves.
But either the final directive was mislaid
or the library personnel were afraid to re-
store the books, because the directive has
neither been rescindednor obeyed. None of
the un-banned books have been returned
to library shelves. International furor, how-
ever, has quieted down and most of those
angered by the policy seem resigned to the
fact that even their favorite mystery stor-
ies should be watched for dangerous intents
written between the lines.
The State Department should realize
that weak and ignored directives will not
Tescind stronger ones and will not restore
the prestige of America in foreign eyes.
Countries abroad, far closer physically to
the menace of Communism, can hardly
maintain respect for a country that not
only prevents views contrary to its gov-
ernment from being expressed anywhere
but fears works mildly critical of its for-
eign policy and even detective-stories. The
USIS library policy has made Ameri-
ca look sorrowfully weak to the rest of
the world.
Unless a stronger order is issued imme-
diately to restore every previously-banned
- book, or at least those which are not purely
Communist propaganda, the United States
shall no longer be able to command respect
from any other so called "weaker" coun-
try abroad.

Report from Formosa:
Chiang Kai-sheh's Forces

TA"IPEI, Formosa -- The mist delicately
veiling the steep mountainside (which
everyone professionally called the "impact
area" suddenly ravelled and shredded into
wisps. The tough, grinning soldiers of the
Chinese gun team, who had come to this
through years of war and from distant pro-
vinces, stirred into a bustle of activity under
their be-fronded icamouflage net.
From the other side of the bean-field,
the wiry young battery executive officer,
began shouting the count harshly and
loudly. The gun team leader responded,
while the spade-holder at the tail of the
gun carriage opened his mouth comically
wide, to protect his ear drums from he
noise of firing. "Fire," bellowed the exec.
Three guns crashed out at once, and soon
dust plumed up from the distant mountain-
side. The divisional commander, smart, sol-
dierly and a graduate of Leavenworth, grin-
ned his pleasure. The division's American.
liaison officer, a cheerful young major fresh
from the line in Korea, turned to the Chi-
nese general happily to say he shooting was
"Damn good for the first round." The gun
team leader, grinning too, patted his .75
pack howitzer, while his number two man
cleared the gun and rammed home the sec-
ond shell.
This little scene was typical of a good
many scenes of a day spent visiting one of
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek's poorer di-
visions, which is just being brought up to
combat-worthiness. One remembered the
Chinese Army of the past-the roped and
beaten files of new recruits that the gun
team had once walked with; the starveling
tatter-demalions that they became as uni-
form; the wretched, maltreated equipment
that was all they had; the careless, ignorant
officers who stole their pay and rice. For
one who so remembered, the scene in the
bean-field was profoundly moving.
But the sharp contrast between past and
present does not justify mere vague en-
thusiasm. The generalissimo, the Prime
Minister, Gen. Chen Cheng, who began
the army re-organization, and the bril-
liantly able army commander, Gen. Sun
Li-jen, have done great things with he
help of the American Military Advisory
Group under General Chase. Yet it is
important to, realize very precisely just
what those things are and what they
From the beaten remnants of forty-five
armies, then, they have formed twenty-eight
Chinese divisions, of which approximately
twenty-one are included in the American aid
program. By the wise insistence of Gen.
Sun Li-jen, these are light divisions, adapt-
ed to move over the gruelling, almost road-
less Chinese terrain. They have a full
strength of 11,000 men, a sensible minimum
of mechanized transport, and one battalion
of .75's as divisional artillery. These divi-
sions are in turn backed 'up, at the army
level, by battalions of 105's as army artil-
lery plus some tanks.
The troops are properly fed, regularly
paid, reasonably housed, and continuously
and toughly trained, which they appear to
enjoy. All the American advisers agree, with

soldiers will fight and fight well, if and
when they are called upon to do so.
In the last year, the generaissimo's air
force of approximately eight groups has
also made immense strides under the de-
termined leadership of Gen. Wang Shu-
ming, "Tiger" Wang of the old days, who
used to make the miraculous Chinese air
warning net somehow work with no visible
assets but string and chewing gum.
To be sure, all but a few of the planes
are obsolete types-mainly F51's, F47's and
B25's-and the air warning system is piti-
fully inadequate. But the spirit and train-
ing of the air outfits are excellent. The
air adviser, Col. Edward Rector, one of the
finest American flyers in China in the last
war, rates the majority of the pilots as
equal to the men of our own air force. Rec-
tor believes further that nothing but more
training is needed to bring the whole force
up to this level of proficiency. And better
planes and warning equipment are on the
S , ,
SUCH ARE THE credit items of the bal-
ance sheet. The debits are of three
kinds. In the first place, because of the
treacheries of his generals in the fighting
on the mainland, the generalissimo has
sought to strengthen his personal control
of his armed forces. The instruments of
control are the combined supply force under
General Wang Chen-chou and the political
department under the generalissimo's son,
Gen. Chiang Ching-kuo. Both agencies are
responsible directly to Chiang Kai-shek him-
The combined supply force might work
well under such a man as the famous
Chinese war time chief of ordnance, Gen.
Yu Ta-wei. Unfortunately Gen. Wang
Chen-chou is a not very competent palace
favorite. Consequently this vital service
has many of the defects of the Chinese
Army in its worst period.
As for the political department, it is sim-
ply a system of political commissars. At
first, every, order given by a unit comman-
der actually had to be countersigned by the
unit commissar. Now American persuasion
has led to reform. Since Gen. Chiang Ching-
kuo is singularly able as well as singularly
tough, the system now works fairly well, ex-
cept in one respect. It promotes political
interference in the army. This is the second
big debit item on the balance sheet, which
forms a subject in itself and must be dis-
cussed in a subsequent report.
As for the third and final item on the
debit side, it can be stated bleakly and
simply. These Chinese forces on Formosa
are not ready and are not being got ready
to accomplish any known and worthwhile
The air force and the smaller and less
satisfactory navy are very far from ade-
quate for the defense of Formosa. The
air force and navy are hopelessly inade-
quate to support a return to the mainland.
Meanwhile the army is needlessly large
for Formosa's defense. But even if a turn
of world events provides the Chinese with
American air, naval and logistical support
for a landing on the mainland, the pre-
sent Chinese Army is not up to this'task.

Lydia Men delssohn..
THE HEIRESS-with Gwen Arner, Nafe
Kattner and Paul Rebillot.
"THE HEIRESS," an adaptation of the
Henry James novel "Washington
Square," presents a problem of sophisticat-
ed interpretation which the most experience-
ed company would find challenging. The
challenge rests in the finely drawn charac-
terization and the fascinating and incisive
interplay of personality which marks James'
work-qualities successfully transposed to
the dramatic form. In most interpretations
the Speech Department cast reflected a sen-
sitive insight which achieved the mood and
intensity of the work.
Set in New York of 1850 the action in-
volves a wealthy widower, Dr. Austin Slo-
per, and his daughter, Catherine, whose
beauty most nicely can be described as of
the soul and not of the body. No one real-
izes this more than Dr. Sloper whose beau-
tiful and accomplished wife died giving
birth to Catherine-providing a conven-
tional resentment for the sarcastic doctor
to hold against his daughter. Believing
Catherine's only real asset to be her
wealth, the doctor is quite alert to fortune
hunters and senses danger when the per-
sonable but penniless Morris Townsend
appears via a distant line of the family
Townsend proceeds to a rapid courtship
with expected success but is rebuffed when
Dr. Sloper takes his unwilling daughter
abroad for six months.
Eventually the pair return from Europe
and an elopment is arranged. However,
Townsend learns Catherine will be disin-
herited and fails to arrive at elopment hour
to take her away as' his wife. In her dis-
illusionment Catherine gains strength
against her father and Townsend, renounces
her father at his death and stages the final
climax by refusing to marry Townsend in a
powerful final scene.
With all these components of a stock
melodrama, considerable restraint is
needed to convey the delicacy of feeling
an dsubtle changes of character which
give the play its distinction.
As Catherine, Gwen Arner displayed this
restraint, turning in an extremely fine per-
formance marred only by a tendency to
wring her hands in any especially emotion-
al situation. Nafe Katter gives a uniformly
mature and intelligent characterization of
Dr. Stolper, and the best moments of the paly
come in his scenes with Miss Arner.
Unfortunately, restraint was lacking in
Paul Rebillot's presentation of Morris Town-
send and quite frequently in Shirley Pengil-
ly's conception of Lavinia Penniman, the
widowed aunt. Though Townsend is a thor-
ough going fortune seeker with the corres-
ponding affectations of his type, he is not
the offensive fop that we saw last night. By
insuring that there could be no mistake about
Townsend's attentions, Rebillots lack of fi-
nesse made it dicicult to believe that the
daughter could be convinced of his love for
a minute.
Miss Pengilly sucered from too obvious
make-up, a range of expression that often
seemed to begin and end with an open
mouthed look of amazement and a too
obvious interpretation of her role as a
"country cousin."
The supporting players were more than
adequate with Cartaine Balduf and Sue
Spurrier turning in especially fine character-
izations in their respective roles.
Costuming was excellent, and though the
set requirements were open to little imag-
inative creation, the designers came through
with a more than convincing impression of
mid-19th century New York elegance.

WASHINGTON - Tennessee's famed ex-
Sen. Kenneth McKellar returned to
Washington the other day to "protect" TVA
from the power lobbies.
Despite his age, generally believed to be
about 85, McKellar's memory is remarkable,
and at lunch the other day, he launched on
one of his oral trips through history.
"Back toward the end of the Hoover ad-
ministration, I was on the Senate Appro-
priations Subcommittee that handled Ar-
my funds. One day the Chief of Staff,
General MacArthur, came up to testify.
He brought two generals, a colonel and a
major with him.
"MacArthur was always a good witness,"
McKellar recalled. "He had most of the
answers on his fingertips. But finally Sena-
tor McNary of Oregon stumped him with a
question about army research on new gun
mounts. General MacArthur and his aides
all turned to the major for the answer. But
the major didn't know the answer.
"Well, that major gave us a big, friendly
smile and said he'd have his staff dig up
the answer and get it to the committee.
"A couple of weeks passed and we still
-didn't have the answer," McKellar contin-
ued. "It was time to make out our report so
we phoned General MacArthur. He explain-
ed that the major was handling the whole
