    Background: THE BIGGEST SINGLE AMERICAN PRESS GROUP TO VISIT THE CHINESE NATIONALIST STRONGHOLD, QUEMOY ISLAND TOURED ITS DEFENCES JAN 29. FORTY SEVEN NEWSPAPER PUBLISHERS AND EDITORS LOOKED THROUGH FIELD GLASSES AT THE CHINESE MAINLAND TWO-THOUSAND-THREE-HUNDRED METRES AWAY, AND AT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL CENTRE SAW BALLOONS INFLATED AND RELEASED TOWARDS THE MAINLAND WITH PROPAGANDA MATERIAL ATTACHED.

    THE GROUP LATER VISITED TAIPEI, CAPITAL OF TAIWAN, AND MET PRESIDENT AND MADAME CHIANG KAI-SHEK. THE PRESIDENT TOLD THE GROUP HE EXPECTED TO RECONQUER THE MAINLAND "SOON". HE DID NOT INDICATE WHEN THIS OFT-MENTIONED COUNTER OFFENSIVE WOULD BE LAUNCHED BUT SAID THE "INCREASING DISCONTENT OF THE PEOPLE AGAINST THE COMMUNIST REGIME" WAS A POINT IN HIS FAVOUR.
