Blytheville Courier News (Newspaper) - September 13, 1954, Blytheville, Arkansas Mommy september 18, 1984blytheville Ark Courter mews Pagh three Bamboo curtain report reds ready to invade Formosa editors note this is the first of three exclusive eyewitness dispatches by an a old China hand who takes you behind the Bamboo curtain for an up to Date look at red China and the preparations for a threatened attack on Formosa. The writer s by line is an obvious alias for the equally obvious reason that members of his family still live in Shanghai where he was born. He left China 19 months ago How he returned for this report a and got out again a must remain secret. By John Smith written for aka service Hong Kong a Nea a i have just returned from a visit to Shanghai my Home for 30 years before the communists took Over and i have seen the buildup for the next red attack in Asia. They Are ready for Formosa. They believe they will win. Thie belief is based on the Western surrenders in Korea and Indochina and the firm conviction that the u. S. Navy and air Force will not act with enough Speed or Force to prevent a red Victory on Chiango a Island. My impressions Are based upon what i saw and heard in red China. At Woosung the ship i was aboard was held up for several hours by the quarantine doctor from our Vantage Point in the Harbor i had a perfect View of the Small shipyards we hich Dot the Shoreline of the Whang poo River up to the main port. A a a on the Way a in various stages of completion were scores of medium sized vessels ranging from 500 to 800 tons at Anchor were swarms of gun boats formerly japanese and rows of lists and lems and smaller Landing Craft the latter were All gifts to nationalist China two years ago these were a collection of Rusty hulks with Skeleton Crews. Today they Are a smart looking Armada of Light ships. They Are freshly painted and their Well trained Crews Drill Day and night big guns have been mounted fore j and aft and the lists have rows of automatic 30-mm. Guns along each aide. This i was told is but one portion of the staging area which extends along the entire coast opposite the nationalist stronghold. This Type of activity around Shanghai is All for offensive preparation. There Are no signs of defense. Gun position and forts i which protected the Harbor i rom Moosung have been eared. But amphibious training continues week in and week out As division after division takes its turn for sea drills under the watchful Eye of soviet tutors. A a a the reds strategy is based on two beliefs 1. They can Knock out Formosa with a Quot human sea attack of Small Craft and paratroops covered by an air Armada of migs which can furnish them with local air superiority for at least a week. The reds have amassed enough Small ships to move a million men in the first wave. Chinese Are loaded on 2�?T.--ton trucks at 65 per truck. We Load 24. They can put 500 migs into the area in a few hours knowing that the nearest u. S. A brevets Only opponent a Mig fears Are hundreds of Miles away on Okinawa they know . Navy Carrier planes Are no match for migs 2. By taking Formosa they will eliminate the one talking Point of the . For steadfastly fighting red China a admission into the United nations Chiang Kai Shek and his nationalist government. The Peoples revolution in Quot Hina will then be termed Quot completed a and a Quot United Quot government will demand representation. The reds will make their political bid for in recognition this fall. The military bid May come at the same time. Shanghai a waterfront from their looked like this As Craft milled about in Whang poo River fleeing the reds in 1949. Today Shoreline is dotted with commie gun boat Landing Craft. Sixth grader 12, kills father because dad was mean to me Zanesville. Ohio Imp police said sixth grader David Larry Ingles 12, admitted shooting hts father to death yesterday after coming Home from sunday school. Chief George Hodgson and Muski Ngum county prosecutor Joseph Mcnerney said David in a signed statement admitted he had planned for two or three weeks to kill his father.

A the threatened me and Mother a t Tousand chief Hodgson said the statement gave this account of the shooting David came into the House while closeness of Formosa to red Mainland and to air and sea base at Shanghai is shown Here. The communist know More than citizens in the us realize the same fact that the us seventh Fleet is spread out Over thousands of Miles of Pacific and China sea Waters they evaluate it strength As not sufficient to halt a tremendous mass invasion under an umbrella of migs they feel certain that the temperament of the l a. Government ii such that chances of the seventh Fleet being built up to meet their planned attack Are slight. They figure that the . Will reinforce after the initial invasion by that time the reds Hope to have the Island overrun. They do not credit Chiang s army with the ability that press accounts have Given. I am no an authority on either Side of the picture. Hie Issue of the . Navy and air forces determination to fight for Formosa has been made Clear in various Public statements. The ability of lilians soldiers in a possible Battle has been lauded by both american military men responsible for their training and by press observers. But on the chinese Mainland these items Are elephant walk Danbury. N h a a circus travelling through new Hampshire. Took a Short Cut Over a Back Road in this town. As the elephant truck went up a ions Hill the tailgate Slid open and one of the pachyderms got out. Motorists on the Road later received quite a Shock to see the huge animal calmly standing by the Roadside apparently enjoying the Woody Countryside. About 40 Miles further on. The circus Crew stopped for a rest and discover the loss a search party was sent Back and the elephant was discovered surrounded by admirers some with cameras others just wondering at Quot new Hampshire not believed. The outcome of an attack May be in doubt. But its certain the sights Are on Formosa and the reds Are ready to trip the trigger. A his father was alone and in bed. He took a fancy .22 Caliper target pistol decorated with imitation gems from a hiding place and shot once but missed his father. A what Are you doing a the father asked. A a in a going to kill David said he told his father. The statement quoted David As saying a when my Finger was on the trigger i Stop shooting.
