Soviet Press Silent On Polio Vaccine Bid MOSCOW, April 18 (A*). —The Soviet press and radio so far have not mentioned the Salk polio vaccine nor President Eis enhower’s offer to supply Infor mation and samples to all coun tries with which the United States has diplomatic relations, including the Soviet Union. The American Embassy in Moscow said it does not know whether this distribution would be made here by Ambassador Charles E. Bohlen or through the Soviet Embassy in Washing ton. Reds Are Tough, Pride Says, But Can Be Handled | TAIPEI. Formosa. April 16 (A7. j —A dangerous situation exists in the Formosa Strait area, but the danger is frequently exag gerated. Vice Admiral Alfred M. Pride, comander of the 7th Fleet, said today in an interview. Admiral Pride considers the recent completion of the airfields at Luchiao, 220 miles north of Formosa, by the Chinese Com munists three months ahead of schedule as a sobering develop ment. Broader Potentialities This field, on which Red jets now are within reach of For- \ mosa, to say nothing of the Nationalist-held offshore islands; gives the Reds much broader > capabilities in the Formosa Strait. But it takes more than an airfield, he said. To challenge the Nationalist Chinese control of the air. Red jets must go out and fight—must not only attack Chiang Kai shek's planes, navy and supply ships, but must cut supplies to advance Nationalist bases on the offshore islands by bombing For- j mosan ports and airfields.

Luchiao and the much closer field at Foochow, 160 miles across the strait from Formosa, will make the Nationalist supply proDlem difficult for the Matsus which blockade Foochow, but Admiral Pride does not agree with those who say it is impos sible. The Foochow field seems to be finished but as ytt has no jets based on it. Would he defend the Matsus? Admiral Pride parried this in evitable question with “no comment.” Could he defend them? “We have great capabilities.” he said. “We can do many jobs. But remember we have to pay a price and under some circum stances the price is higher than under others.” Heart Fund Formed !
