HITS U.S. ROLE Born in China tu missionary parents, Dr. Ronning was a close student of the situation in China and Vietnam before he retired. It's an interest he has maintained. He says Canada and other middle powers are beginning to doubt the "competence" of the United States and similar greal powers "lo be lefl alone lo provide security for all Ihe nations of the world." The U.S. role in Vietnam is a favorite larget tor his incisive longue. "If you're going lo have negotiations, you have to try lo see what is good in Ihe other side and admit what is bad in your side; and 1 think in international ncgotialions we are moving toward this because Ihe power stiuggle among Moscow, Washington and Peking has proven lo us thai il is impossible in this day and to.gct a satisfactory balance of power. old tradition of China has a momentum lhal is almost impossible to slop. The Chinese are prepared to let time solve problems for them." Dr. Ronning was born Dec. 13, 1894, in Francbeng in Hupeh province. His firsl lan-. guage was what is known as the common soulh-ern Mandaiin-in a land of dialects. Frar.cbeng is across the Han River from the ancient city of Siangyang, 600 miles south of Peking.

''It's a peasant i'vilization. i "It is basically an. agricul- ural civilization and the prob-cms of China are Ihe prob-ems of the Chinese peasant and Mao Tse-tung has understood the problems belter lian any other modern leader. And he has had experience wilh these problems during the whole 25 years of his struggle." Throughout the interview, when Dr. Ronning mentioned the Chinese leader, he 2Uv2vs referred to him by his full an indication of respect.

He is sometimes considered to be the successor to Chiang Kai-shek. "U is possible they will reach some soit of will enable some sort ot satisfactory arrangement lo be made between Peking and Taipei." Dr. Penning is busy these days with painting, sculplure, reading and VuMc appearances. And the latter have become lately a bit of a burden. "Too many entirely.
