    Background: NATIONALIST CHINESE ARMED FORCES TOOK PART IN A BIG PARADE IN NORTHERN TAIPEI, TAIWAN, ON NOVEMBER 22 BEFORE PRESIDENT AND MADAM CHIANG KAI-SHEK AND THEN TOOK PART IN MOCK BATTLES DEMONSTRATING THEIR FITNESS FOR COMBAT AFTER ONE YEAR'S TRAINING.

    OVER 3,000 PEOPLE, INCLUDING FOREIGN OBSERVERS, JOINED THE PRESIDENT AND HIS MILITARY ADVISERS, TO WATCH THE MOCK BATTLE. FIRST JET PLANES SWOOPED LOW DROPPING BOMBS AND ENGINEER TROOPS FOLLOWED BY BLOWING UP FORTIFIED BUNKERS.

    THE "BATTLE" CONTINUED WITH AN INFANTRY ATTACK. AS THE MEN ADVANCED, SO SUPPLY PLANES DROPPED ADDITIONAL ARMS AND EQUIPMENT.

    THE EXERCISE BEFORE THE PRESIDENT AND OBSERVERS IS TO BE FOLLOWED LATER THIS MONTH BY FULL-SCALE "MOCK BATTLES" COVERING MOST OF THE ISLAND.
