Daily Plainsman, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1964, Huron, South Dakota WEDNESDAY, MAY 6, 1964 THE DAILY PLAINSMAN, Huron, South Dakota PAGE NINE IIS. Vows To Stay In Okinawa As Long As Threats Continue By ROBERT EUNSON NAKA, Okinawa will remain here so long as threats and tensions continue to The threats referred to are from Communist China. The tensions have gripped this part of the world 19 years. Here happens to be Okinawa', a 67-mile-long island, believed to be Uncle Sam's most impor- tant nuclear weapons base in the Far East. It is 15 minutes, as the jets fly, from Red China. The statement about remain- ing here was made by Lt. Gen. Paul W. Caraway, high commis- sioner to the Ryukyu Islands since 1961. "We're here for national se- curity and to fulfill our com- mitments to the free Caraway told The Associated Press. "We can only carry out that task if we unimpeded." Asked about a suggestion that' political control of the Ryukyus be returned to Japan with the United States still retaining its vast network of air and mili- tary bases, Caraway replied "anything is "Article Three of the Japa- nese peace treaty says the Unit- ed States is and the Jap- anese agreed to any and all powers of administration, legis- lative -and judicial, in the Ryukyu Islands, The United States can exercise these pow- ers so long as it he said. Asked if Okinawa actually .might .je written off in case of an all-put .war because of its proximity to the Chinese main- land, Caraway snapped: "This is an attitude that is de- veloping in the United States, especially among Washington newsmen. We will remain here so long as threats and tensions continue to exist." One school of thought among this island's American inhabitants, including the 3rd Marine Division, is that Okina- wa would be safer than the mainland since both the Com- munists and the United States would be blasting at each oth- er's homeland in case of atomic war. dkinawa is known as "the billion-dollar but that figure can't include all Uncle Sam has invested here. The whole island is one mighty biise. Military and civilian roads, telephone systems, water and power networks are completely integrated. Bases on Japan have been! emasculated, so far as any true strength is concerned, because of left-wing opposition to nu- clear weapons or the basing there of planes or vessels which transport them. "We are here to meet our security arrangements with our Caraway declared. "We're here to protect the Reasons Why Sears Mower Best Buy! Durable 16-inch Hand Mowers Craftsman Best 18 iii..

Caraway, retires Aug. 1 and will be succeeded by Lt. ;Gea. Albert Watson job is the nearest thing the United States has had to a governor-general in the Pacific since it gave up the Philippines. And that is the position some Americans in Ok- inawa want Caraway and his successor to have. "We need an organic act by Congress which will put the Ryukyus in a commonwealth status, such as we have Puerto Rico, Guam, or used to have the Philippine says Howard of the American Chamber of Com- merce on Okinawa. McClellan and other Ameri- cans here hold that a common- wealth status is necessary until such time as the islands revert to Japan. Accuse Chinese Of Searching For Partners MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Communist party suggested to- day that Red China's leaders are playing up to capitalists in West Germany, Britain, France and Japan. The allegation was made' bji Kommunist, the Soviet party's official theoretical journal, and was distributed in advance of publication by the governmenl news agency Tass. "When Chinese propaganda speaks about the struggle against Kommu nist declared; "it reduces it only to the struggle against the United States, bypassing their European and Jap anese imperialists'. "Is it 'possible that the Chi nese leaders .-are looking for partners among the monopolis circles of West German, Brit France and Japan in the struggle against so-called 'mod era The latter term." is one-the Chinese use in .attacking pre mier Khrushchev's policies, in eluding his espousal of peacefu coexistence with the-West.

Ac- tons to elininate delays will" aregly or entirely offset any de- ays that would othenvise result from the adjustment, and it is expected overall service will be improved.
