firm words from Washington and big winds looming over the For mosa Strait Chiang Kai Shek and some of his verbally Gung Ho subordinates seem to have shelved the moment at least their dream The hopes of invading the Communistheld Chinese main land this summer At the same time despite their military buildup or redeployments lately in South and Central China and along the coastline opposite Nationalist held Formosa the Chinese Communists seem un likely to try to capture Formosa or the Nationalists offshore is land this they want to add possible war with the United States to their current troubles with India and their grinding food and economic prob lems at home So if these assumptions by non Chinese sources here and on For mosa are correct the Formosa Strait area should settle back again for the time being into its perpetually uneasy politics military calm And the 100mile wide Strait separating Formosa from the mainland should be turbulent soon with its summer typhoons There can EM no doubt the Na tionalists were or at least f talking vociferously that way up until a few days Not a few Army offjeers and government Officials wouTd tell anyone who would listen raised eyebrows or not that the time never was more sunny for Chiang Kai Shefcs longpromised assault against Red VM Mainland peasants already bn the edge of revolt against rthe Communists because of foodand economic failures will join us the moment we land these National ists say with eyeshining convic tion or hope Theres unrest in the Red Army and some of its soldiers will defect to us The Communist partys

portunity Needless to say Nationalist ap praisals of conditions among the mainlands population the Red Army and Communist control did not always agree with those held by Americans After Cuba Amer icans inclined to be more cautious in their assessments develop ments in Communist states The Nationalists insisted of course that they wanted to invade the mainland themselves Our policy for invasion is not a single Ameri can one high Nationalist of ficial said with a trace of arch ness All we would ask is American moral support and sympathy and logistic assistance he added a few minutes later Reminded firmly by the United States it does not want them at tacking the mainland Nationalists on Formosa have been talking less and less the past few days about invading Red China Such talk We are getting fed up with governments talk about in vasion and nothing happening said one Chinese civilian who fled to Formosa from Peiping in 1949 If we arent going to invade they should shut up age 3

Caroline CHIANG KAISHEK By JOHN QUIRT New York Herald Tribune News Service DETROIT General Motors Corps principal competitors are mappingnew strategy for fall aimed at cutting into the fat mar ket share of GMs hottest seller Chevrolet Ford Motor Co is putting its fighting money into new convert ibles and station wagons that will compete directly with Chevy and into refinements in the Galaxie that will sharply differentiate it from Chevys Impala Chrysler Corp also is spending for new convertibles but its big investment is aimed at wriggling free of a styling bind that Jiurt sale and left company designers liltle room in which to maneuver Basic to any understanding of exactly what Ford and Chrysler are up to is quick look at the market and 2 a close look at 1963 versions of what once were the bottom twothirds of the LowPriced Three tKe m the first half of 1962 grabbed an unprecedented onethird of all domestic newcar sales Its share of the market for US built makes reached 354 per cent in May 358 per cent in June This works out to an average 43800 car sales a week not a lot less than Ford Motor Co with 258 per cent of the market and Chrysler Corp with 87 per cent sell between them The Impala model alone is ac counting for roughly 10 per cent of the market In May the last month for which reliable model bymodel figures are available it outsold Galaxie nearly 2tol The effect of this growing disparity has been to give the efforts of Chevrolets competitors some new element of urgency For 1963 therell be significant improvements in both Plymouth and Ford Galaxie members of the old Low Priced Three These will be carried over and embellished in companion Dodge and Mercury models Galaxie will get all new sheet metal below window level and a new suspen sion system enabling front wheels to retract at a 45 degree angle rather than straight up and Other refinements A Thunder birdtype swingaway steering wheel synchromesh threespeed transmission jetpod taillamps new anticorrosion protection for the under portion of the frame an alternator replacing the gen and 2 inchthick foam rubber padded seats replacing a combination cottonfoam padding on 62 seats In weight height length and width Galaxie will remain identi cal with the 1962 model which matched the Impala in basic dimensions and price Pricing of Galaxie and other 63 cars is still unsettled but the best guess is that it will stay at the 62 level Plymouth for 1963 will be three inches longer inches wider and slightly heavier than the 62 model with a lower belt line and silhouette Wheelbase will stay at lifc inches vs 119 for GalaxieImpala and for the Ford Two new Plymouth engine op tions will be offered A 361cubic inch powcrplant with twobarrel carburetor and a 383inch with 4 barrel carburetor and dual ex hausts Additional galvanized and stainless steel will be deployed on moldings sills and other weather sensitive areas Front seats will come with thicker 2V4inch foam pads The biggest change in Plymouth however is the more squaredoff shape it has acquired as the re sult of a decision to replace the outer body used on 1962 Plymouth and Dodge models with new sheet metal This was a not inexpensive move yet one the company ap parently had little choice but to make in the face of its styling problem The continental look of the 62 Plymouth and Dodge the 61 and 62 Valiant and Lancer was not accepted by car buyers as enthusiastically as the boxy Thunderbird appearance of Ford and GM makes The continental moreover entailed some fancy sculptured sheet metal in the door panels which left Chry sler stylists little freedom to move as they attempted to square off the car The decision to spend for a new outer shell or body was made about 12 months ago before the 62 models debuted but after the similarly sculptured 61 Valiant and Lancer were proving slow sellers Thus the move was made before Chrysler hired Elwood P Enget away from Ford and appointed him director of styling in Novem ber 1961 Several refinements in ornamentation aimed at further squaring off the cars were made after Engel joined the company A flattened outer shell on Ply mouth and Dodge made it easier to divorce the two cars in size Dodge is being stretched beyond Plymouth dimensions both in the front and rear quarter panels to match Galaxie and Impala in wheelbase and length Dodge still will weigh about 100 pounds less these two principally be cause it uses a unitbody rather than frame construction Langer renamed Dart in a shift of Dodge nameplatcs for 63 and Valiant are getting a completely new shell with an even more pro nounced Thunderbird shape that should give Chrysler stylists room to make relatively lowcost exter tGMC ior changes in future years Val iant will remain Falconsiza adding 22 inches in overall length bwt losing 16 inches in width at the rear bumpers Dart for 63 at 11 inches in wheelbase will become Chevy II or Comet size The decision to separate Valiant and Dart was made two years ago when Comet debuted and sold well using stretchedout Falcon shell Use of a single shell in this way cut Fords costs and permitted company to compete effectively in two slightly different siza categories New features on both Valiant and the heavier fancier Dart Single seveninch diameter head lamps wraparound rear bump ers aluminized tail pipes larger axle bearings that will handlt
