Chinese Government .Accused
Of Withholing.Famine Relief
By The Associated Press
Unpleasant facts about the world's
biggest relief job came to light this
week in China.
These facts boil down to this: Uni-
ted Nations Relief sent to China
isn't reaching many starving Chin-
ese who need it most, while some
of it is sold to wealthy Chinese who
can afford to pay for it.
Besides this, the Communists claim
that the government has been with-
holding relief from Comniunist areas
for political purposes.
All this is very unpleasant, espec-
ially to Chinese, but it is to be hoped
that airing the facts may help in the
long run, as facts often do.
The Central Chinese Government,
through its insistence on setting up
its own relief organization (CNRRA)
to handle UNRRA relief, assumed the
responsibility for doing a job. The
job hasn't been done, partly because
of well nigh insuperable difficulties,
but partly also because of the fami-
lar corruption in high places.
Having all this discussed in public
makes the government lose face, 'es-
pecially outside China. UNRRA cut
off shipments to China this week.
Whether the government loses as
much face in China itself, is some-
thing else again. Corruption-some
corruption-is regarded as a neces-
sary. evil there, for long-standing
If the government can clean up
the relief situation, it might thereby
do much to reassure the Commun-
ists--not only about relief, but about
the whole possibility of peaceful uni-
ty. The alternative as both sides
know, is civil war.
