Anon. A. Ben gamer of the Jamestown alcohol education Center 454-2794 suggests you get in touch with them first to talk it Over. If commitment is found to be the Only answer they can help you with that too. By William l. Ryan a special correspondent smiles and amiability flowed out of China last week like a flood on the yellow River. The tide threatened to drown policies built up Over a whole generation of hostility. It seems that the United states has upset policies constructed through four previous . Administrations. A new Era May indeed he at hand but the landscape is littered with uncertainties. As president Nixon Heads Home americans and others have a Chance to recover from the Glamour of it All and Ponder some provocative postulates. Americans have been handed a new Way to look at China after 22 years of hearing it described As one of their most fearsome enemies. There is now talk of a real if somewhat Distant possibility for full diplomatic relations and of imminent ties on other Levels. With All that what happens to the Keystone of . Asian policy americans for a Long time were told that a red China threat was the main reason for . Military involvement in Vietnam. Is a policy of military involvement developed Over 20 years now declared invalid0 few doubt that Premier Chou in Lai has resisted any Nixon attempt to discuss a chinese role in pacifying Vietnam and he hardly could have retreated in his condemnation of . Support for the nationalist regime of Chiang Kai Shek on Taiwan. But now the impression is that neither of these formidable looking issues needs to impede a process of .-chinese dialogue. The hint is that Lon term. Such issues Are in fact soluble. It seems inconceivable that the peking Summit won t have an important Impact both in Vietnam and Taiwan however. The fact that the ally of North Vietnam could have become so cozy for a week with the ally of South Vietnam is enough in itself to exert indirect pressure on both Hanoi and Saigon. Thus it May even have an effect on chances for ending the War. In the Case of Taiwan the picture of the president and chinese leaders pledging Mutual efforts for Normal relations can profoundly influence chinese nationalists to think in terms of their own approach someday to peking for a possible chinese solution. The . Move on the China front was in a Way revolutionary. And it met with what would appear to have been a revolutionary response in peking. But at the same time neither Nixon nor Chou could surrender on Basic principles. Americans will remember that Chou never suggested chinese approval of the . Government or system. All his toasts and pronouncements mentioned the a a american people a and communists see a big distinction. Similarly Nixon spoke of the a chinese people a never once implying any approval for the chinese system of government. Chou did not publicly show any inclination to Back away from China a championship of world revolution. Even while Nixon was on his Way to China peking s propaganda broadcasts were As vehement As Ever against the . even with the talk of fewer Walls Many Basic differences remain Between Washington and peking. Still both sides conceded much considering the background Chou found the Nixon move toward China he spoke publicly of a possibly of a a normalization of relations. He announced that Gates were opened. He let the chinese people in on the Story by permitting the chinese Media to publicize it amply. This was going a Long Way. On his part Nixon suggested that it was unnecessary for China and the United states to be enemies thus implying without specifically saying so that policy had been mistaken this was a bold approach All the More startling because an earlier Nixon was firm about a chinese threat.

Nation agonies Over busing Washington a just wait said the Southern senator. Wait until the courts Start ordering school children bused in other parts of the country. Then something will be done about it. The prediction of sen. John Stennis d-miss., repeated often during those years when the courts concentrated on the South has come resoundingly True in 1972. President Nixon has promised a solution for this a National the various democrats trying to replace him in the White House Are scrambling for positions on busing. Congress is considering Laws against it and May even try to Amend the Constitution to prevent it. Busing has become the no. I Issue in the Florida primary now just two weeks away and there is every indication it will be a dominant Domestic Issue in this year s presidential election. The Rise of busing As a National political Issue can be traced to three court decisions the supreme courts ruling in a Charlotte n.c., Case last april upholding busing As a Means of de segregating the schools a Federal District court ruling last september that schools in Detroit were unconstitutionally segregated and a Federal District court ruling last month ordering a consolidation of the 70 per cent Black school system in Richmond va., with the 90 per cent White systems of its two suburban counties. Each decision sent its Shock Waves a Little further until now the tremors have been Felt by political leaders in every Section of the country. Most of All they have been Felt in the White House. President Nixon strongly indebted to Southern political leaders for both his nomination and election in 1968, has been performing a delicate balancing act on the busing Issue Ever since. He has spoken out repeatedly against busing threatened to fire any government who seeks More than the minimum busing required by Lawand at the same time proclaimed the Success of desegregation under his administration by pointing out that nearly All Southern school districts Are now legally desegregated. Nixon a repudiation of his administration s own desegregation plan for Austin Tex last August spotlighted both the precariousness of his Perch and the political Impact of busing with Texas 25 electoral votes considered crucial for Nixon s re election and overwhelming sentiment in the state against busing Nixon faced a dilemma. A Federal judge had approved a school desegregation plan for Austin that was clearly not in compliance with the supreme courts Charlotte decision. Texas republicans strongly urged Nixon not to Appeal the decision. Atty. Gen. John m. Mitchell said the government had no alternative but to Appeal in View of the Charlotte decision. Nixon s solution was to proceed with the Appeal while at the same time issuing a Strong anti using statement and disavowing a plan drawn up for Austin by the department of health education and welfare to comply with the Charlotte ruling. The result made no one Happy. By permitting the Appeal Nixon antagonized texans. By opposing busing and the hew plan he outraged civil rights advocates. And he gave George Wallace an opening. Whether by coincidence or not the Alabama governor chose that week to announce he would run for president again. Nixon he said a keeps saying he s against busing and our children just keep on getting Congress began feeling the heat of the busing Issue with the Start of the school year last september when a number of Northern and Western cities were faced with extensive bus see nation Page 3a
