TOMORROW ALL SALES CASH AND FINAL NO PHONE ORDERS < NO LAY AW AYS ANDERSON HOUTZDALE Washington Calling The World Today " O d.. wiiiiiMV ARROflAST By MARQUIS CHILDS Progress Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON - Generals and admirals thinking in conventional terms of America's past wars have failed to grasp the meaning of the limited warfare that would stop short of committing large masses of land troops in Asia. That is the conclusion drawn from the fact that the principal analyst-philosopher of the limited or littoral (coastal region) strat egy has never' had a serious hearing from the ,Joint Chiefs of Staff. He is Rear Admiral (Ret.) John D. Hayes, who in 1954 wrote an analysis of peripheral strategy, littoral tactics and limited war. This is an exposition of the kind of proposal made by Lt. Gen. James Gavin for limiting the war in Viet Nam to a series of coastal enclaves. Gavin testified before the Fulbright committee on how his theory could be applied. Hayes would use ground troops to hold specific areas backed up by the full might of America's sea and air power. Updating his concept of littoral tactics, which he believes will eventually be adopted in Viet Nam, Hayes a year ago quoted from his original thesis in the conviction that its validity cannot be challenged: "To effect a sound integrated strategy there must be a system of tactics which will fully employ all military specialties. Such a system of tactics for peripheral strategy is one that uses the littoral of the world as the new borders of the Uriited States. The littoral becomes the line from which operations are projected in offense, the line on which defense is conducted. The striking power of air forces, the mobility of sea forces and the holding power of land forces can all be used on this line. It is the line that contains a continental enemy. "Since the enemy can be kept behind this line without too much difficulty, it does not have to be held at all points as does a line in land tactics. Our strength heed only be concentrated at selected points chosen for their political and military significance. Ground forces will face a continental land mass with its continued support insured by naval forces. The striking power of air forces will he the main weapon of offense, and airborne operations from the littoral will be used when feasible and suitable." Failure to understand the potential of the littoral strategy has proved very costly since World War II, Hayes believes. �He cites China and Korea as tragic examples of what this failure has meant. In 1949 instead of retaining bastions on China's exposed cpasts, he wrote, we retreSted behind a water barrier to an imaginary oceanic line drawn through Japan, Okinawa and the Philippines. This- was announced as the line on which Washington would conduct our defense and the policy of containment. Many observers have believed that withdrawal to this line, attributed to the unwillingness of the American people to risk another total war, triggered the Communists into the attack on South Korea. In discussing his littoral strategy Admiral Hayes points to what he believes was a fundamental misconception about China. While on a small-scale map it does appear to be a continental state like Russia, its history for more than a century proves that its great rivers and long coastline are the focus of its power. The coasts of China and Southeast Asia, Hayes observes, are directly exposed to the forces of sea power as continental Russia is not. By WILLIAM F.

But, he emphasized, they release Corn-suggests that if this had been munjst ships to carry war ma-the strategy Tsingtao might to- teriel Influenced, Hayes believes, by our fixation on Europe we withdrew Marines from North China and two Army divisions from Korea. The last place the Chinese Nationalists abandoned was Hainan, the large island on the South China coast that forms the Gulf of Tonkin: "Almost immediately it was discovered that such a strategy deprived us of all freedom of action, both military and political," Hayes wrote. "Within a year we were back in Asia but with only a foothold on the peninsula of Korea, and at what a bloody cost." Hayes holds that if we had remained inx North China, and especially if we had held Tsingtao, a deep-water port, and Chefoo, once the summer base of the Asiatic fleet, there might have been no Korean war. Even less likely would have been Chinese intervention. He day be a Northern Hong Kong or even a Far East West Berlin. As the Fulbright hearings continue and the escalation of the Vietnamese war raises in acute form the threat of Chinese participation, the question of strategy and a limited war will be more and more to the front. The next step, according to private word from official sources, is to be the mining of Haiphong harbor in order to shut off the flow of supplies to North Viet Nam. That could bring a showdown not only with China but with the Soviet Union as well. It is the strategy of those who be- More than half the non-Communist ships that visited North Viet Nam ports in 1965, Chamberlain said, were registered under the flag of the United Kingdom. Sponsors of the bills to close U.S. ports to ships trading with North Viet Nam aren't to optimistic about winning their fight in that field. But they have another plan which they believe will work. They are going to offer amendments to the annual foreign aid and Defense Department appropriation bills to cut off U.S. financial assistance to any nation that allows its ships lieve "victory" in South Viet Nam can come in the pattern to continue the trade. of the past. - (Copyright, 1966, by United James Marlow, who usually Feature Syndicate, Inc.) writes this column, is ill.
