    Similar to newsreel story. UNO meeting, Lake Success in the United States of America.

    Warren Austin (US delegate) speaking (natural sound) 'Last week, the Forces of the United Nations opened a general attack designs to finish their Korean task of repressing and restoring international peace and security in the area. This attack has been repulsed in circumstances which make it clear that Chinese Communist armed forces totalling more than 200,000 men are now engaged in North Korea. It also appears clear beyond any doubt that what all the free world hoped for was an intervention for limited purposes is, in fact, aggression, open and notorious. You will recall that yesterday I mentioned that word 'aggression.' and withdraw it and said I will not now use that word. I will use only 'intervention' until the facts come to our knowledge which justify the use of that word. And I employ it here in this council and before all the world by direction of my Government. I speak of that vast number of Chinese people, five hundred millions of them and it is not they towards whom I point when I speak of aggression. MS. Millions of Chinese will not forget that they ate, worked, travelled and were clothed during the harsh years following the war, largely because of American assistance. The rice alone that we sent to China in 1948 and '49 filled the rice bowls of 10 million Chinese. I speak of aggression I speak and refer to the Chinese Communists when I speak of aggression. Let us retain for ever that wonderful friendship which has existed and still exists between the people of the United States and those people of China. LMS. Mr. President, I should like now to put some questions to the Chinese Communist representative. What are his Government's interests relative to Korea.

    The Chinese delegate begins to answer Austin's questions.
