Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1950, Winona, Minnesota Cloudy, Warmer Tonight; Rain Sunday You Will Meet New Corona Type Monday VOLUME SO, NO. 221 FIVE CENTS PER COPY WINONA, MINNESOTA, SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER TWENTY PAGES Million Chinese Massed at Border; Two Divisions Fighting In Korea Full-Scale Intervention in Korea Indicated by China Propaganda By Fred Hampson Hone Kong The Chi- nese Communists have opened the floodgates of propaganda and the ensuing roar sounds as if they intend fullscale in- tervention In Korea. Already the growing evi- dence that the Chinese have entered the Korean war to a limited extent is Causing un- easiness in non-Communist areas of this part of Asia. The feeling in this British crown colony on the edge of Red China is that the world is only a narrow step away from a third great war. And such a war would bring the heavy force of Communist arms to bear against such small, non-Communist holdout areas as this. The prevailing opinion here still is that the Chinese Com- munists have only a limited objective in mind in Korea. Most observers believe the Chinese Reds are worried about the Yalu river power grid. This supplies electricity to much of Manchuria's indus- tries. Another explanation is that the Chinese Communists simply want to establish a buf- fer zone between Manchuria and Korea. Manchuria is the main industrial area in which the Chinese Communists say they intend to build a modern China. They always have been hypersensitive about Manchu- ria. On the other hand, the new outbreak of propaganda with its overtones of intervention sounds ominous. Tlie Pelplng radio says it has received "thousands of let- ters" from writers "anxious to join their Korean neighbors in annihilating the aggressive American hordes" in Korea. Some Communist newspap- ers devoted more than half their front pages to such ex- pressions purportedly coming from the people. They carry such language as this: "The war in Korea has ceased to be a Korean prob- lem, for American Imperial- ism in reality lias stepped in- to the shoes of Japanese Im- perialism. We cannot reason with a man-eating tiger. We have every reason to unite against the aggressors." Observers recognize this as a Communist effort to condi- tion their people for war. And they believe it sounds more like full-scale rather than lim- ited intervention. If the fateful step is taken, what will be the reason? The power or buffer explanations seem inadequate for such a momentous decision. Observers frankly admit they cannot think of any ex- planation unless it is that the Chinese Communists are so completely under Moscow's thumb that they are taking an order from Russia that will mean China's ruin. Explanations lie deeply hid- den behind the iron and bam- boo curtains. But just now It looks to observers as if the Chinese Communists are do- ing the bidding of Moscow far more wholeheartedly than any- one out here ever expected. TODAY- Truman Farm, Health Plans Build Up Ire By Stewart Alsop New York President Truman's Fair Deal is not a real issue any- where In the Middle West. By de'f- Inition, an issue requires disagree- ment. And In the Middle West, there is no disagreement about the Fair Deal. Everybody is against It. In the area of domestic policy, there are just two ideas for which the Truman administration is sole- ly responsible. These are the Bran- nan plan for agriculture, and the Ewing plan for health. Everything else in the Truman program is es- sentially a warmed-over item from Franklin D. Roosevelt's capacious New Deal icebox. Thus the Bran- nan and Ewlnp plans tire the Fair Deal. And in the Middle West, the Fair Deal has no defenders at all.

French Forces Retreat Again In Indo-China Communist Troops Within 45 Miles Of Hanoi Base By Seymour Topping Saigon, Indo-China .roops began a new retreat today, this time from positions in the foot- hills 45 miles southwest of Hanoi. Official reports said the small French post of Vubanh and a whole string of outposts and guard towers were being evacuated. The withdrawal represented a new retrenchment of defense lines around Hanoi, North Indo-China metropolis and key center of the: Red river delta.

However, Intelligence officers said there still was no determina- tion about whether Red China had sent regular divisions Into Korea. As yet, they said, there is no "pattern of proof." In the most crucial area, at Un- san and Kunu inland from the west coast, General MacArthur's head- quarters said the entire withdraw- al strategy is "almost complete." The situation there appeared, on the basis of field dispatches, to be stabilized. In northwest Korea, half of a trapped regiment of the U. S. First cavalry division escaped to the new U. N. defense lint from a trap sprung Thursday by the Ko- rean Reds. The Reds were aided by Chinese Communist troops.
