Formosa's undeter- mined status must lie decided one of these days, taking the wishes of the Formosa population into consideration." And what would be the wishes of those 12 million, people if they never had a chance to express them?

And if it did. would Peking let bygones he bygones? The an- swer to ihe latter is definitely no. The an- swer to the former is no now. There is -some faint hope lhat the independence movement, which has been brutally crush- ed by Chiang's secret police methods, may now be revived abroad, so lhat after his death it could become a viable alternative on Formosa itself.

And just in case Unao's re- marks were enough to fill Americans with doubt, Tai- wan's ambassador James C. II. Khcn is moving annul Ihe l.'nilert Stales trying to arouse waves of cmisvi-valivc uncase about His Nixon mission. Shcn is lolling audiences that President Nixon will wind up being "used" when he goes Io Peking on invilnlion of Prc- Sabre-rattling Sadat NT sJ mier Choue lOn-lai, whom Slien calls "a ruthless murderer." Will] his cwn hands, he mas- sacred a family of 'six' persons because Iho man had betrayed his Communist connections. In a recent speech before tlie Detroit Economic Club. Shcn also implied lhat Chou was culpable in I he massacre of Io M million" Chinese dur- ing the recent convulsions of the Cultural Revolution. The objective seems to be to create revulsion at the thought of an American president breaking bread wilh "a murderer." .Still, Shen is warning Ameri- cans that Chou is a "smoolhie" who at. the end of the Second Wrrld War "succeeded In hood- winking (Jen. (George C.) Mar- shall and making him believe lhat Ihe Chinese Communists were not revolutionists but "peace-loving agrarians reform- ers." Shen's implication is clear: Americans ought In wcr- ry auuuL Nixon boing hoodwink- ed. Chiao's speech, plus Ihe fact Peking has not eased Hi anli-U.S. propaganda since Hie Nixon trip was announced, does raise the serious question as to why Chan invited Mxon. Shen drops the .sarcastic comment that "one very simple answer to lhat would thai your president had actually asked for and then goes on to tell audiences what he thinks Chou is up to, "Chou hopes to strengthen his position vis-a-vis Ihe Soviet: Union isolate the Republic of China on Tai- wan cause suspicion and distrust IjeUveen Japan and Ihe U.S. and also between Japan and free Asian nations and improve bis own position in the power struggle within the Com- munist hierarchy iiselfj" the Taiwan envoy asserts. It is possible to shrug off Shcn's somber analysis as just the myopia of a man embitter- ed by defeat in the United Na- tion. Vol. who can ignore his analysis completely? It is possible to dimiss some of Chiao's rhetoric as just the kind of UN talk essential Io a country Irying to stake out n claim of leadership of "the third world." It was manifestly- clear that Chiao was appealing to the poor, weak, developing nations of Asia, Africa and La- tin America. Cut you try to put Chiao and Shen into some reasonable per- spective and one thing becomes clear. That the Nixon mission to Peking is not the surefire diplomatic coup and election- year bonanza so many people thought it wotiid he a few weeks ago. (Tield Knlerprisrs. Inc.) IVeslcrn Problems in choosing programs to check inflation {JTTAWA The Senate fi- nance committee, in a report characterized by much good sense, argues that a re- formed prices and incomes commission should mount an effective "spotlighting program" to check inflationary forces in the economy. Every approach involves dif- ficulties, In principle then; is a good deal to }yc said for this proposal. On past performance, it may appear thai Senator Kvurctt and his col- leagues are attributing more good .sense io governments 'and a more .single-minded ap- proach to economic probleniM than they have generally dis- played or seem likely to dis- play.

Where responsibili- ties are distasteful, the ten- dency to shunt thorn or to at- tempt to shunt them on to Ottawa's shoulders i.s often strong. On the assumption that the committ e e s recommendation is generally acceptable, how the reformed commis- sion go about its work? It i.s made very clear that it would have no specific measuring stick, no set of government guidelines, to apply Io particu- lar situations. Instead it would identify and research cases in which cast and price increases are "out of line" by any 'Teas- standards." It would be concerned with with instances in which, owing to the weak- ness of normal market forces, incTcasrs occur "in excess of any economic or other justifi- cation."

The senators are probably correct in their observation that some of the more valuable work of Ihe PIC involved pre- cisely this kind of exercise. Two points are to he noted, however. First, the PIC did have a measuring stick. It did. in re- peated instances, return a find- ing that such and such an in- crease was within, or outside, the guidelines. Secondly, the impact on UK: public was not that desired. Once an impres- sion was created that all this activity was largely academic, the country appeared to lose patience with the PIC. What would happen if the new PIC was armed with no measuring sUck beyond a rule of reason: a requirement thai it adverse findings on ihe lark of "any economic or oth- er What is rea- sonable v.l.en situations vary? Any corporation or union will presumably plead some sort of justification. In one case, it will he .T'ce.pted: in anolher it will not. In effect, siK-h a PIC would hnve vast discretion and would almost certainly find it- self assailed for discrimination by parties objecting to its de- Tin- v.ill not he aea- di'iiiic because the. reconsti- tuted Pit', having identified ex- e wage or price in- creases, is also Io propose rem- edies. An eminently sensible observation follows: If Mifh steps as Ihe removal of tariff protection or of re- strjciions on the rnlry of new workers inlo particular trades would improve mailers, these should be considered by gov- ernment. They should be, but, if (he pas! record is n reliable guide, they will no! be unless IlK'iv i-; a remarkable er- .sal of form and in provincial capitals a.s well, For decades there, has been power in Ihe gnvortior-in-rnun- eil. spelled oiil in the Combines -V1! vnv-e "V limit duties. ;-s ;i remedy for market exploitation, Moreover. in several cases, (lie ever-op- Umintic restrictive trade prac- tices commission h as issued public reports specifically urg- ing the government to take such steps. What has happen- ed? Exactly nothing. It is true that, over time, some such recommendations been implemented but never any acknowledge- ment of the commission's good work. Duties have been lower- ed for other reasons and usual' ly as a result of general trad- ing agreements. Tiie department of industry, trade and commerce behaves like a frugal squirrel, storing nuts for some season of need. What it wants in commer- cial negotiations is bargaining power. For this reason every possible concession must be jealously treasured, not cast away merely because consum- ers are being gouged by some predatory industry. Government in such matters is not single-minded. It may have (me eye lor it may occa- sionally glance out of one eye) at prices: but the other eye, and usually Ixitli of them are on job.1, in local factories, or in politics, or on the balance of payments or on other consid- erations of obvious importance. Local governments, within their jurisdictions, act in much the same way, They arc re- sponsible for most of the re- strictions on entry into particu- lar trades and professions. But they do not often go out of their way to pick quarrels with par- ticular groups and they are less likely to do so when they sense a possibility that the ex- tortions of which citizens com- plain can be attributed in one fashion or another to the short- comings of federal policy. As an economic prescrip- tion, the senatorial recom- mendation may well be admir- able. The problem is HI Iho behavior of Ihe patient: Name- ly government. If they can cure that, we should all be much bel- ter off. But given the history of the case, one would have to be the most reckless of optim- ists to hoi on success.
