Containment
Policy
Reaf firmed
THERE MAY be more to Secretary of
State Dulles' reaffirmaton of the "con-
tainment policy" than meets the eye-and
If there is, he has once more brought into
the spotlight several of the most trouble-
some problems confronting a successful exe-
zution of American foreign policy.
In calling for "united action" to stop
the Communists from mopping up in In-
do-China the Secretary has left unans-
wered for the Communist world, as well
as the Western world, precisely what this
action would entail.
In his speech delivered Monday at the
Overseas Press Club, the Secretary said that
a Communist victory in southeastern Asia
would threaten "the Philippines, Australia
and New Zealand."
"The entire Western Pacific area, in-
cluding the so-called off-shore island chain,
would be strategically endangered," he con-
tinued. Dulles quickly pointed out that the
United States has "treaties of mutual assist-
ance" with nations in ths area.
Now, it may be possible that the Secre-
tary is bluffing and he and the Adminis-
tration intend to do nothing about Com-
munist victories in Indo-China. This seems
improbable.
What does seem to be the case is that
the Secretary has warned the Commun-
ist nations in the East that a continued
or increased war might bring on another
major skirmish similar to the Korean con-
flict.
The Administration through Dulles laid
the foundation for collective action being
taken. The United Nations almost of neces-
sity must be by-passed if such action is
forthcoming. All the United States need do
is to persuade its treaty allies to go into
battle under the terms of mutual assistance
pacts.
Thus the Communist veto in the United
Nations can be avoided.
But if this is the Administration's thought,
we must expect direct intervention on the
part of the United States in Southeastern
Asia. This may well include, aside from
sending bombers, sending troops (an action
contrary to the official statements of the
President who has veered away from this
course of action).
The act of sending troops would bring on
a situation similar to that encountered in
Korea.
If this Is the Administration's policy
then it is nothing more or less than the
"containment policy" carried to its na-
tural conclusion-that of a threat of
limited war to avoid war.
The question then is whether or not the
Western World is still prepared to engage in
a limited, but costly war again in Asia. In
this writer's opinion the answer, no matter
how distasteful and horrendous, must be
"yes." There seem to be no other satisfac-
tory alternatives. We can allow the Com-
nunists to slowly eat up Asia and avoid war
temporarily, but one day we will eventually
have to fight-and the odds will be against
us;
Or, we may attempt to deter further
aggrandizement by demonstrating a will
to fight if we must, hoping that this atti-
tude will make the Communists shy away
from engaging in open conflict indefinite-
ly.
The Administration, then, seems to have
put forth a "get-tough containment policy"
We should be willing to follow it, or offer
a better alternative.

VOICE OF THE FACULTY:
Ward Discusses Far East

Richest Country In The World

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following article is an
account of an interview with Prof. Robert E.
Ward of the political science department and
assistant director of the Center for Japanese
Studies. Prof. Ward has toured the Far East
extensively in recent years and is presently at-
tending an International Political Science Asso-
ciation conference which is discussing compara-
tive politics.)
1. What advantages or disadvantages
might accrue to the United States by re-
cognizing Communist China and drop-
ping recognition of Nationalist China at
the present time?
One of the major things to be considered
in the recognition of any country is the sta-
oility of its government. In this respect it
must be admitted that the Chinese Com-
rnunist government will probably endure for
many years. The Communists have secured
a very firm control over the Chinese peo-
ples and there is little chance of their being
ousted from power within the foreseeable
future by any domestic rebellion.
When they first came into power the
Communists enjoyed, in fact, a greater
popularity with the people than had any
other Chinese government in recent his-
. tory. This was due partially to general
disillusionment with the failures, ineffi-
ciencies and corruption of the Kuomin-
tang government and the hope that the
Communists might do better, and partially
to a very prevalent feeling that almost
any change would have to be for the bet-
ter. The country had been ravaged by
continuous warfare for eight years and
desperately needed peace and extensive
improvements even to regain its pre-war
standard of living.
In this connection it should also be noted
that before the Communists came into pow-
er they had a deceptively good record. Op-
erating in both Southern and Northern
China for many years, millions of people had
found the Communists to be intelligent,
honest and apparently interested in the wel-
fare of the lower classes of Chinese society.
To many, the Communists thus seemed to
hold out the only real hope of a better life
for the masses. Millions of peasants conse-
quently joined the movement to overthrow
the Kuomintang government and to bring
the Chinese Communist Party to power. On
the strength of such support they assumed
formal control of all China in October 1949.
In the ensuing two years they solidified
their hold or authority and made themselves
secure against rebellion. Thereafter, how-
ever, they began to behave more like ortho-
dox Marxists and showed less interest in the
popular welfare. At the present time they
have seriously alienated sizeable elements
of the population. Peasants have found
themselves forced to live on cooperative or
even state-owned farms rather than being
allowed to own and operate their own small
plots as they had originally been promised.
Private enterprise, too, has found itself
subject, to mounting and disastrous official
pressure. Nevertheless the Chinese Com-
munists probably continue to enjoy a strong
hold on the majority of the people and, so
great is their power and so extensive their
control, that there seems to be small like-
lihood of a successful revolt.
Recently there has been considerable hope
abroad,'in the United States in particular,
that the Nationalist government on Formosa
will be able to attack and occupy the main-
land in the near future. Actually there is
little chance of this. In a military sense
there are excellent reasons to doubt the
quality of the Nationalist troops. Over-age
to begin with in many cases, they have been
aging further since 1949. They have no
reliable source of new recruits. For Formo-
sans themselves are of dubious loyalty and
are not normally recruited into the regular
army, but only into labor battalions. The
morale of these Nationalist troops was poor
to begin .with. They were severely defeated
at a time when they had many advantages
over the Chinese Communist troops. They
failed to fight effectively against their Com-
mnunist foe then; one wonders if, under less
favorable circumstances they would do any
better today. Add to this the fact that they
have now been on the island of Formosa for

more than five years, Each year- they have
been told that "This is The Year of Deci-
sion," the year of a victorious return to
the mainland. Yet in none of these years
have any significant assaults been launched.
There are about 600,000 armed men on
the island, but Red China has between
four and five million troops. Although
only a minority of the Red troops are as
well organized, armed and trained as those
in Korea, they are in general loyal and
able soldiers, while it is doubtful if the
Nationalist troops can claim these advan-
tages.
There is not the slightest possibility of
the Nationalists returning to the mainland
without extensive United States naval, air
and ground power helping them. The re-
sult of this is that the Communists are not
presently facing any serious challenge from
either within or without.
Thus it seems wise to re-examine our pre-
sent position on the recognition of the Chi-
nese Communist government. Our main
bargaining points with Red China are re-
cognition, admission to the United Nations
and relaxation of the embargo on the ship-
ment of strategic goods to that country.
While it would be foolish to follow the Bri-
tish example of recognizing Red China with-
out gaining any positive results in return, if
certain well-secured arrangements of value
to us could be made with China recogni-

seriously handicap the United Nations any
more than it is at present by Russian ve-
toes.
2, Can a satisfactory solution be found
to the situations in Korea and Indo-Chi-
na?
There is a much better chance of the Ge-
neva Conference or some similar future
meeting being able to settle the problem of
North Korea than the problem of Indo-
China. The conduct of the Korean War has
put a tremendous burden on Red China-
just at the time they had launched their
five-year plan to develop heavy industry,
a project that the Communists consider most
vital to their stability. The Korean War
imposed a tremendous economic and finan-
cial burden on them. Settlement in Korea
will probably mean a semi-permanent boun-
dary line at the point where the armies of
the United Nations and North Korea stop-
ped fighting.
In French Indo-China, Ho Chi Minh
and his native troops have not only not
suffered a serious set-back, but have made
significant advances. The resources of
China have not been directly involved
here, so there is no pressure on them from
that source to stop the war.
If Ho Chi Minh were offered a coalition
government he might be willing to take it
so that he could maneuver the Communist,
Party into power within a few years. Given
the genuinely nationalist nature of a portion
of the revolutionary movement, however, one
wonders here whether Communist China has
sufficient control to turn this movement on
and off at will,
If the French were willing to set up a
completely independent nationalist govern-
ment in Indo-China without any Commun-
ist Party members in it, there might b
some chance that Ho Chi Minh might lose
some of his supporters, gving the new gov-
ernment some chance of success.
S. Many political leaders today blame
the fall of Nationalist China on past Uni-
ted States mistakes In the area. Do you
consider such reports to be valid?
No serious amount of the responsibility
for the Communist rise to power belongs to
the United States. If one examines closely
the life of the average Chinese citizen in
the latter years of the Kuomintang ,Gov-
ernment, one comes to understand the true
desperation of the country's circumstances.
He was poor, ridden by war and these con-
ditions had persisted for over a century.
Inflation further ruined China. The people
were anxious for change and had little faith
in the ability or good intention of their Ku-
omintang rulers.
Furthermore, the Chinese Communists
had a good record before they took com-
mand of the government. They had been
honest, fair and friendly toward the peo-
ple. More and more people come to ac-
cept them even if they didn't know what
Marxism or Communism was. The Na-
tionalists were far more lavishly equip-
ped in the war than the Communists, but
the troops lacked the will to fight the
Communists.
Had the United States been able to bring
about a strong movement for better rule by
the Kuomintang, then there might possibly
have been a chance for the Nationalists to
stay in command, but it seems unlikely that
we could have done this.
4. What possibility is there for Mao to
become a second Tito?
There is very small chance in the near
future. Those who think Titoism is possible
have pointed to Manchuria and other areas
where the Russians have tried to assume
control for years. But the Russians are
withdrawing now from this area in favor of
the Chinese Communists. Others say the
USSR has thousands of Russian advisers in
China and that the nationalistic, jingoistic,
anti-Caucasian Chinese people will start
friction. Still others point to personal fric-
tion between Mao Tse Tung and Malenkov
a causes for Chinese Titoism,
However, the only significant factor
that might cause friction is the struggle

for power over other Asian Communist
Parties. Before China fell to the Com-
munists, new Communist Parties always
looked to Russia for their leadership, but
now the rising Asian Communist Parties
are taking more guidance from Peking.
It is doubtful If this jealousy will cause
any overwhelming amount of friction in
the near future, however.
If it were possible to split the alliance it
would be easier for the United States to
deal with Russia and China separately, but
China is very dependent upon Russia for
economic reasons and Russia also needs Chi-
na at the present time.
5. Is it likely that in the near future
other "Koreas" and "Indo-Chinas" will
break out under Red China's leadership?
The Chinese Communists would be quite
willing to supply and assist other Com-
munist rebellions in other countries in
Southeast Asia, and it is quite likely that
they will do so in the near future. But
the Chinese don't want another Korea,
for such a war is far too expensive for
their present economy. The Chinese are
aggressively minded, but their time sche-
dule of attack is an uncertain factor.
However, just the threat of China's pow-
er is a powerful force in Asia today. The
Southeastern Asian countries greatly fear
China and can be forced quite far just by
Chinese threats, Unless the United States

WASHINGTON-On direct orders of President Eisenhower, the veil
covering the H-bomb will be lifted next week and the public will
get its first glimpse of a hydrogen explosion. However, this column is
able to give a word preview of the horrible holocaust, which must be
seen in technicolor to be fully appreciated.
What the public will see is a tremendous fireball, filling the
horizon with flame and smoke. This was the world's first hydro-
gen blast, the one that plunged a rocky atoll 175 feet down through
the ocean floor on Nov. 1, 1952. Yet it was a mere firecracker
compared to the latest hydrogen explosion exactly one month
ago today.
The public will be shown the feverish preparations for the first
H-blast. They will see a black, two-story structure atop a lonely atoll.
This was known as the H-house, which housed the hydrogen device.
Then the cameras will show a control ship about 10 miles out to
sea from the archipelago, about 35 miles from the fateful atoll. The
public will watch while the control switches are pulled.
The horizon flames up, and a monstrous fireball takes shape.
The announcer explains that the fireball,. alone, is three miles in
diameter, though it is only the red eyeball of the blast. It is then
superimposed over New York City, showing how the center of Man-
hattan from Washington Square to Central Park would be turned into
a fiery furnace, and the rest of the city would be devastated by shock
and heat waves.

At Lydia Mendelssohn ..
PRODUCED as part of the Spanish Club's
annual fiesta at Lydia Mendelssohn
theater last night, "Sueno de Una Noche de
Agosto" was an admirable example of what
can be done by an amateur group.
The plot of G. Martinez Sierra's comedy
concerns a young woman, Rosario, who
wants desperately to be "emancipated"
but can't resist indulging in romantic
n vels. One evening while she is soulfully
absorbed in a 19th century counterpart of
True Confessions, a hat sails in through
tle window, immediately followed by a
1vsterious Stranger.
Although there are a few unnecessary and
insipid speeches, most of the dialogue vir-
tually flies along with its quick retorts and
humorous comments on the place of wo-
men in Spanish society.
Despite the handicap of performing in an
unfamiliar language, the actors succeeded in
conveying an appearance of ease in their
roles. Carolee Dickie, who expressively plays
the bewildered heroine, gives a considerable
amount of spirit and vitality to the role.
Daniel Testa is thoroughly charming and
convincing as El Aparecido.
Eugene Holcombe, however, might have
shown greater flexibility in his portrayal
of brother Mario, and Ernest Klein played
Pon Juan fairly straight where the part
c !led for a stock character.
On the whole, the performance was co-
ord'nated with an excellent sense of rhythm
Eni pacing, providing a satisfying and en-
t- t'aizing evening.

suggested that it ought to be called a toadstool cloud, because it is
deadly poisonous.
Most fearful result of a hydrogen explosion, scientists say, is
what they call a heavy "falling off." This means the shower of
radioactive ash that rains down over the area. In an atomic ex-
plosion, the radioactive residue is scattered in a fine spray that
has a tendency to stay up in the atmosphere until it dissipates. A
hydrogen blast, however, not only throws the radioactive poison
over a wider area, but the particles are heavier and fall as literal
fire-drops from the sky, searing whatever they touch.
As the final scene of the 28-minute hydrogen film, the camera
returns to the site of the grim, black H-house. The atoll on which it
once stood has disappeared, and the audience is told all that remains
is a 175-foot hole in the ocean bottom. The announcer's voice des-
cribes the hole as large enough to swallow up 18 Pentagon buildings.
This sobering film was cleared by the Atomic Energy Com-
mission six months ago. President Eisenhower, himself, approved
of its release to the public. But the Army and Navy raised such
a clamor that the President changed his mind and kept it classi-
fied. The generals and admirals didn't want it' released before
their appropriation hearings, for fear some congressmen might
get the idea that the H-bomb had out-mioded massive land armies
and navy task forces. At the prodding of civil defense boss Val
Peterson, however, the President finally overruled the Army and
Navy,
What makes the film shocking, however, is the fact that it shows
only a baby H-bomb. The March 1 blast was four to five times more
powerful with a fireball larger than the entire area of destruction at
Hiroshima and Nagasaki.,
McCARTHY-GO-ROUND
ESPITE HIS bland denials, Senator McCarthy has passed out poli-
tical favors to Pvt. David Schine's millionaire papa, J. Myer
Schine. For example, McCarthy interceded to expedite action on a
construction permit for a Schine TV station in Albany, N.Y. In re-
turn, McCarthy has flown around in Schine's private plane and stay-
ed at his fashionable hotels-without paying a dime . . . . It used to
be considered unethical for a government employee to accept a 12-
pound ham .... The State Department is sitting on a report more
explosive than the 34-page Army document on Roy Cohn and David
Schine. The State Department report gives the real lowdown on the
