    Background: PRESIDENT AND MADAME CHIANG KAI-SHEK AND MORE THAN 1,000 DIGNITARIES WATCHED FOR SEVERAL HOURS A WAR GAME DUBBED "OPERATION SUNG SHAN" AT A BEACH AREA NEAR KOA HSIUNG RECENTLY.

    WARSHIPS OF THE TAIWAN NAVY STARTED OFF WITH A FLEET FORMATION TO SALUTE THE PRESIDENT AND HIS GUESTS. THEN, IN AN AMPHIBIOUS INVASION THAT FOLLOWED, TEAMS OF FROGMEN WITH DEMOLITION EQUIPMENT APPEARED IN THE WHITE SURF.

    MINUTES LATER, THE ASSAULT TROOPS NEUTRALISED "ENEMY" RESISTANCE IN THE BEACH AREA AND MOVED INLAND TOWARD RUGGED HILLS.

    LATER IN THE DAY, THE AIR FORCE STAGED A 45-MINUTE DEMONSTRATION SOUTH OF TAIWAN, WHICH INCLUDED A FLYPAST, LOW-ALTITUDE AIR-DROPPING AND PRECISION BOMBING AND STRAFING.
