There appears to be a moral inconsistency in what we have done. There could come at any t:me a showdown in which ,the Uni,ed SLates would be con- .fronted with the choice ,of for- saking Taiwan or rejecting ex- pans!on plans of Communist China. As I see it, it would not he a deC.sion on inv,olvement In war, but on whether our preent official treaties w',th Taiwan cntinued genuinely to be backed with old fashion American integrity. It is .most un:.kely that Taiwan would be The living s,tandard on Tai- wan is one of the hi,:hest in As:a. During the last 10 year.s it has increased each year by an average of 10 per cent. The gross national pr.duct has risen from $431 million n 1952 to $6.5 billion in 1972. Agricultural land is owned by .arly 703,009 farm- ers; private industries, wth huge inves, tments from U. S. enter- prisers, have begun to compete in the world markets. There ave ,three major privately-owned TV networks, 78 radio sta,tions, 31 daily newspapers and some 1500 magazines. There is no Govern- ment censorship. At The Human Progress Level Here are some stais.Mcal con- tr.sts between the two Chinas: Tai.wan's diet is Asia's highest in calories and second highest in proteins (2,680 calories, in- cluding 69.2 gzrams of protein, versus Communist Ch,ln.a's i,780 I calories and 30 grams of pro- ,,n ) Per capita consumption of electric power: Taiwan, 216 kilo- watt hours; Communist China 13 kwhs.

Contrasting Ways A national moral judgmen by the American people must be made, it would seem to me, now or m the near future. So let's look at a few facts in the contrasting societies of Main- land and Island China. I know Mainland China from my liv- ing there fro" years among her people and teac,hing at Sun Yat Sen University at Can,ton. I know te Communists. who san my missionary family out of China. I know Chiang Kai-shek, and I know the modern li&tle nation of Taiwan. Mainland China is under the rule of atheist Covnmunists. There is no individual freedom. The econ,omic sys,tem is State Socalizm -- property, produc- tion and distribxtio,n faclllties are owned :by the Government. Prices are fixed and people re assigned their Jobs by the Gov- ernment. The Government is a dictatorship; ruled by Mao Tse-tun,g and Chou En-lai. Churches are not permLtted; worSh.,p of Ood is a crime against .Communism, punishable as a defection. Encouraging Achievements Island China (Taiwan is a democrat:c Republic with three freely elected Houses in Parlia- men,t: The National Assembly, t:e Le,gislative Yuan, and the EXecutive Yuan. Mayors and mgis'trates, members of ,the Provincial Assembly, and City Councils are also elected. Every citizen 20 years old or older may vote. Membership in the three ,ational g.verning bodies was expanded in the election,s of December 23. Basic economic principles are private ownership of property, the free market, ahd self-reliance. Prices are controlled by consumer prefer- once, wages by competition and individual capability. Freedom of religion is guaranteed by the wan, 139 bicycles, 49 mo,torcycles and 9 autos per 1,O00 people; Communist China, 20 bicycles, 0.3 motorcycles, and 0.8 autos. H._spitals or clinics: Taiwan, one fer every 13,0,0 people; Commu- nist China, one for every 110,008. Educa,tion: Taiwan, 98.5 per cent children 6 to 12 in school; Com- munist China, 78 per cent. Which nation if a choice mut be made -- has demon- ._,trated spir',tual, economic and political principls and achieve- ments worthy of the respect and friendship ,of the U.S.A.?

Wildmon PRIDE The two states of Texas and ?lorifla have often comleted ga!n,t each other because of .he natural endowments both ave. Many tales ,have been old about people from the two :'tares trying to ,cu.tdo each the, r. The tales are often very humorous. P,rhaps I have one you haven't heard. The Texan was visiting his friend in Florida. For the first .ew day,s the Florldian made great effort to show his frlen.d ..igh.ts of the Sunshine State. But .the Texan seemed unim,- pressed with any of the sights I he saw. He would always say I that in Texas they had some- thing bigger and. better. Getting a little disgusted at the pride of the Texan the host decided that he would get one on the Texan hat he couldn't tcp. So one night, just ,before bed, time. the host sl, ipped into he Texan's room and put a fifty-pound ,turtle in his bed. The Texan. came in,to his room as usual. He put on his pajamas and crawled into bed. He reached over and turned out ] | II I I iiii I II ADEQUATE PROTECTION? We are all naturally concerned about proper and adequate insurance.
