S. 7th Fleet Blocks Chinese Red Armies' Largest Offensive By Albert Ravenholt Foreign Correspondent of The Star and the Chicago Daily News HONG KONG, July 5.—The United States 7th Fleet now in Formosa Strait is blocking the path of the largest offensive yet mounted by the Chinese Red armies. Chinese Communist leaders in Peiping have not yet indicated clearly whether they plan to con tinue preparations for assault on Formosa. However, if the Chinese Communists should attempt in vasion of Formosa now despite American intervention the result ing fracas would make a sideshow of the Korean civil war. Indications are the Chinese Communist central people’s gov ernment in Peiping may make a momentous decision within the next few weeks. It is believed they will only do so after careful consultation with the Russians with whom the Chinese Reds have a mutual defense and alliance treaty. Committed to “Liberation.” The Chinese Communists are deeply committed politically and militarily to “liberation of For mosa.” Communist Premier-For eign Minister Chou En-lai charged two days ago that the United States 7th Fleet was guilty of “armed aggression against the territory of China and violation of the United Nations Charter.” This is but the latest indication of the importance the Commu nists attach to Formosa. Ever since the NationaSists were driven off the mainland last fall the Communists have aimed at the invasion of Formosa as the final and necessary triumph of their revolution. Invasion of For mosa is considered essential by the Communists because Chiang Kai-shek and his regime are refuging there, claiming to be the government of China. To conquer Formosa the Chi nese Communists in the last eight months have made their most ex tensive military preparations for a single offensive to date. They have also enlisted the advice of numerous Soviet technicians as jvell as a supply of Russian jet and other airplanes, plus other mili tary material. suippmg joeing moouizea The Communists are mobilizing most available shipping along the East China coast and the lower Yangtze river to carry their troops to Formosa. This includes an es timated more than 5,000 junks capable of carrying 250,000 men. The Nationalist Navy found Com munist wooden junks far harder to sink than steel ships. Last month the East China National Seamen’s Union mobilized along with China coast fishermen to as sist in the invasion. An unknown number of steel ships were as sembled at Hangchow, Shanghai, Tsingtao and elsewhere. Furthermore, peasants through out East China have enlisted in an extensive road and rail repair campaign. In Shanghai the Com munists have trained special cadres of political workers for the Formosa takeover. This con cludes with special study group discussion of problems involved in taking Formosa. Armies Being Assembled. During the last two months the Communists have begun assem bling their armies in Fukien and Chekiang Provinces for the final assault. Two of Red Gen. Chen Yi’s armies that captured Shang hai have completed special am phibious assault training and moved to the coast opposite For mosa. Meanwhile two army groups of Gen. Lin Liao’s forces that first captured Manchuria, then lately conquered Hainan Island in the far south, are moving toward Fukien. Additional Communist armies are also reported approach ing costal jump-off bases from Central China, possibly North China. If the Communists now are to attempt the invasion of Formosa in face of the American Navy they will need additional Russion as sistance. 110,000 Visitors Expected For Indiana Honor Day I Nearly 10,000 residents of Indi ana are expected to visit here next week when Indian Honor Day will be observed in connection with the capital’s sesquicentennial celebration. They will arrive in special trains and busses. Two special events—a concert by the National Symphony Orches tra and a concert by a 3,000-voice Indiana women’s chorus—have been scheduled. The symphony concert will be 1 given next Tuesday night at the Watergate when the orchestra will give a special Latin-American program. The concert will include two conductors and two soloists. In addition to Howard Mitchell, • .."" the regular conductor, Burle Marx, a Brazilian, will direct the orches tra. The soloists will be Eugene Conley, Metropolitan opera tenor, and Jorge Bolet, Cuban pianist. The sesquicentennlal commission announced today that no more reserved seats for the concert will be sold here, but that the 3,000 remaining reserved seats at the Watergate will be held for the Indiana guests. Unreserved seats still may be obtained at Kitt’s music store. The women’s chorus will sing at the Senate fountain plaza on the night of July 12. Gov. Henry P. Schricker of Indiana will speak.
