The it. Pleasant news vol. 83, no. 90 two sections it. Pleasant Iowa monday evening apr. 17, huh 00 a Len it warmer these Days i defends . Position on by George Sokolsky two chivas for some years the United nations avoided a Sharp split on the China question by maintaining a moratorium on its discussion. At the beginning of each session it decided not to discuss the admission of red China. At first the vote sufficiently Large to make it a fixed policy. In recent years As the membership of the general Assembly of the United nations increased the vote Between those who favored debating the question and those who opposed it has been narrowing. The result is that the notion of a two chivas is taking on new strength despite the in Laos. The fear is that the moratorium cannot be carried any longer too the two chivas idea is a British notion designed to assuage the feelings of red China. It simply Means that both the Republic of China Formosa and red China will be members of tile United nations. The first mention of this idea appeared in an article by t. A Bisson in an Institute of Pacific relations publication As tar Back As 1943. Tile question arises As to which of these two chivas is to hold China s permanent seat on the Security Council regarding this no one has proposed a sound formula. Tile likelihood is that nobody has a solution. Check off Des Moines up a debate Over legislation to set up a Check j off system to finance world-wide1 i sales promotion for Iowa farm i products developed outside the Chambers of the Iowa general Assembly today. Tile presidents of five major livestock producers associations launched an attack on the Iowa farm Bureau federation for opposing a House approved Bill which the producers said Quot of great value to Iowa Farmers. E Howard Hill state farm Bureau president defended the Bureau s position and accused the livestock association presidents of issuing a statement that Quot contains Quot our position is that we will not oppose Check off legislation if proper safeguards Are included Hill said. He added that the farm Bureau opposed the Bill because Quot millions of dollars of Farmers Money Are i a a Check off legislation must be1 carefully drawn Quot Hill said.

Chiang Kai Shek wrote of this Quot tile two chivas talk in International circles today is the repetition of an old tune first played by american too the British Are worried about Kong Kong which the red chinese can take in a few hours unless the United states fights for it. Only the american Fleet in Asiatic Waters can save Hong Kong for the British if the communists decide to take the port which is the la t vestige of British try nth in Southeast Asia. Apart from Singapore. British Trade in Hong Kong and in red China is not As satisfactory As it used to by the British would like to act As honest brokers Between the United states and red China and earn the gratitude of each Side. Ample gratitude from red China might safeguard Hong Kong. If the United states permits the two chivas idea to gain strength at a time when we Are beating the Drums if nothing else concerning Laos we shall be regarded As hypocrites and tricksters and we shall Lase Quot face Quot All Over Asia. The contradictions in our passion cannot be understood accepted by any Asiatic. We would become the laughing Stock of Asia As we did a when we were Defeated by Chen i in Korea. Boasting is not Victory. To an Oriental unless there is a total Victory there is a defeat. We cannot risk another defeat. Too however Many of those who have an important voice in the formulation of the foreign policy of the Kennedy administration believe a two chivas concept As an easy and Tricky out of an unpleasant dilemma. They believe that red China will not accept such an indignity and that therefore the offer having been made and rejected by red China they Are not at fault. There Are two possibilities of error 1. Red China might fool them accept the offer and throw the United nations into turmoil 2. Other Asiatic nations would regard the offer As evidence of american weakness and this would justify the adoption of an anti american attitude by nations which already feel that this country does not live up to its promises.
