Speakers Discuss Communist China

Russia doesn't look on China as an important ally, Edwin O. Reischauer, associate professor of Far Eastern Languages, declared last night. He spoke before a meeting sponsored by the Harvard World Federalists in the Winthrop House Junior Common Room, on the topic, "Communist China."

The U.S. should recognize the Red regime, if and when it gets control of all of China, Reischauer stated. The second speaker, Thomas Mahoney, Legal Advisor to the Chinese Consulate in Boston, said that the United States should not hurry to recognize Communist China, since the act would cut off all chance of aiding the Chinese Nationalists.
