it proWestern does not carry much weight with the half way around the world for the last 50000 Dutch citizens who are now being forced out of Indonesia is the inevitable end to10 years of bitter history in southeast Asia Because the Dutch have seen Uiis end coming for months and even years there is less emo tional tension here about events in Indonesia than might be ex pected It is simply the last chapter and the book will soon be closed As for the future in southeast Asia no Dutchman will do more than shrug his shoulders Behind this somewhat stolid attitude are two serious and deepseated Dutch concerns Anxiety that nothing be done to worsen conditions for the Dutch who are trying to get away from Indonesia and who are al ready arriving in Holland at the rate of more than 2000 a week and a certain bitterness about the fencesitting which Wash ington has done throughout his whole dismal and unhappy af fair The Washington explanation what has happened The Dutch do not believe that a strong American stand would have stopped Indonesia from seizing Dutch properly but they do be lieve that the United States would do better to stand up more firmly for the rule of Jaw in the world and moral support of a NATO ally But these political problems are muted in Holland by the more pressing and immediate business of organizing the homeward trek of 50000 citi least 30000 of them Eurasians who have never seen their mother country Some 10000 now are home and the flow is on the increase with 900 sets available every week on an air shuttle service from Singapore to Amsterdam and ships arriving constantly at the end of the four week Javato Holland voyage They are the last of a long line of Dutch whose lives were based on Indonesia There were 300000 there when World War II ended but when sovereignty passed to the Indonesians in 1949 250000 of them packed up and came home Now the rest are packing up their personal belongings and making their way to jnany harbor towns of the picked
