The article focuses on the political conditions in Formosa during the regime of politician Chiang Kai-shek. The Nationalists and the Communists had a war, and the Formosans had never experienced democracy. But Chiang Kai-shek, president of the Nationalist Government and director-general of the Kuomintang, still wields predominant influence over the army and the national and provincial governments. Newspapers are either Kuomintang organs or dependent on the government for rationed newsprint. Most of the improvement occurred in Formosa in the last few years can be attributed to U.S. aid and influence.
