United Nations forces should negotiate with the Chinese Communists as long as possible but must not allow them to get away with aggression, the University's Far Eastern experts, John K. Fairbank '29, professor of History, and Edwin O. Reischauer, professor of Far Eastern Languages, said last night.
Both conceded that negotiations are unlikely to reach a solution to the Korean controversy that would be satisfactory to both sides.
In the meantime, the most important project of the United States should be a thorough study of Communist instigated revolutions, Fairbank stated.
On the issue of the future course of the war, Reischauer said he thought U.N. forces should continue fighting, even if on a small scale, in order to preserve the appearance of combatting aggression.
Fairbank, however, said he didn't "see anything to be gained by limited war," such as air attacks, because Chinese resources are too spread out to be effectively reduced.
