A crazy-quilt pattern of civil war developed: north against .south, conservative against socialist, nationalist against warlord against government, warlord against warlord. In addition, natural calamities tormented the land: floods, drought and fam- ine killed hundreds of Uiou- sands and reduced millions lo the edge of starvation. Dr. Sun's government, based in Canton, had only n precarious claim lo authority. He appealed urgently lo tile U.S. for help and was ignored, lie turned lo Russia. The Comintern. I ho Mos- cow-dominated Communist In- ternational, dispatched agents to advise Uic Kuomjntang.

By 1923, the stream of Com- intern agents arriving in Cliina Iwcame a flood. The Comintern sought to push the Chinese Communists inlo an alliance with the Kuomintang. Sun shunned alliance with the Communists ss a party but accepted co-operation from Communists as individu- als. On that basis, some Com- munists joined the Ktiomin- lang's ruling hierarchy, Mao among them. For a lime he an allerr.ale member of Ihc Knomintang's central ex- eculive. Bui the arrangement was doomed to a short life. II was a time of confusion. Though there were rival gov- ernments in Peking and Can- ton, most of South China was in anarchy, without eny gov- ernment at all. Encouraged by his Russian advisers, Sun built his own mililary force around a nu- cleus of officers burned out by the Russian-financed Wahmpoa Military Academy. Sun had installed as its chief a tough-minded young officer named Chiang Kai-shek. CHIANG TAKES POWER Chiang soon took the power ii a coup. He set out on a re- markably successful military campaign against the war- lords, and the Communists were co-operating. Then, early in 3927, he turned sav- agely against the Communists in a purge since called "the white terror." Chou En-lai barely escaped execution. The Russians were sent packing and Chiang broke with Mos- cow after raids on Russian in- stallations turned up damning documents. With Soviet-Chinese diplo- matic relations ruptured, Chiang in 1929 fired Soviet of- ficers of the jointly operated C b i n e s e Eastern Railroad. Moscow responded with an in- vasion to restore the Sovicl share ot control. Then, in 1931, Japan In- vaded Manchuria. Thai threw a new light on the whole Far East picture for the Russians. The Japanese created the puppet state of Manchukuo, putting on its throne 26-year- old Pu Yi who, as an infant, had been the last Manchu em- peror. The first "Chinese Soviet Republic" was proclaimed Nov. 7, 3931 al Juichin in Kiaigsi Province. Mao be- came its first president. Al- ready, the party's Bolsheviks were being pushed into the background. Chinese Commu- nism was edging away from Moscow. 416 13th ST. N.
