Soviets Warn Mao of U.S. War


Ben Bella Tells Algeria
Of Opposition Attempt

Tshombe Discusses Congo Coalition

: i%-



Associated Press Staff Writer
MOSCOW-The Kremlin k try-
ing to get a message across to Mao
Be careful about getting into
war with the United States over
Southeast Asia, because we might
not come help you.
The message is an important
third voice in the dialogue be-
tween Washington and Peking,
who have been warning each
other that a major conflict could
develop out of Viet Nam or Laos.
Remain Free
There are indications that the
Soviet Union has not made up its
-mind just what it would do if a
war developed. It wants to avoid
being forced to make up its mind.
But the Kremlin sees the possi-
bility that the Chinese will force
it to spike itself on one of the
horns of a dilemma long implicit
in Soviet policy.
So v i e t Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev has warned against
nuclear war with the U.S. as a
realistic way to expand Commun-
ist control. Khrushchev has been
advocating economic competition
instead. The Chinese have gone
ahead pressing policies that carry
the potential of war.
Disastrous War?
The dilemma would be whether
to let down another Communist
country and thus help the West-
ern antagonist, or to get involved
in a war that Khrushchev says
would be disastrous to everyone.
So the Kremlin has been issuing
warnings to try to restrain China.
It has not said publicly that the
Soviet Union definitely would
leave China on its own to face
American military power. But

political groups drawing theirI

what the warnings have said is
that this could happen.
This is a change from the old
situation of automatic support to
the death-"my ally, right or
Cryptic, Obscure
The warnings have been con-
veyed in the rather obscure way
that Communists talk to each
other: through cryptic articles in
the press.
They are a departure from the
Treaty of Friendship, Alliance
and Mutual Assistance that Stalin
and Mao negotiated in 1950.
That document states that if
one country is engaged in a state
of war with Japan "or states al-
lied with it, the other . . . will
immediately render military and
other assistance with all the
means at its disposal."
'Allied States'
Western observersthave as-
sumed that "allied states" meant
the United States primarily.
The treaty also provides for
consultation on all important
Yet in one article the Kremlin
has laid the basis for possibly say-
ing the treaty is invalid by accus-
ing China of failing to consult.
On June 21 the Soviet Com-
munist Party newspaper Pravda
said Chinese leaders mouth "high-
s o u n d i n g hypocritical phrases
that, in the stern hour of trial,
the Chinese People's Republic and
the Soviet Union will always stand
But, Pravda asked, "How do
you intend to insure this in the
conditions when a filthy anti-
Soviet campaign has been started
in China? Isn't there too much
risk in this dangerous political

game directed toward undermin-
ing the very foundations of the
Chinese-Soviet friendship?"
The warnings reached an offi-
cial level, although still cryptic, in
Izvestia Tuesday.
Deputy Foreign Miniscer Vaer-
ian Zorin denounced Chines., op-
position to Soviet disarmament
proposals and pinpointed two sen-
tences from a Soviet criticism of
China last September 21.
The Soviet Union has come a
long way in accusing China, as it
now does, of rejecting these pur-
p cs.
One guess among Western dip-
lomats here is that the Soviet
Union would be prepared to stand
back and watch a localized war in
Southeast Asia, perhaps even one
involving areas of China adjacent
to Laos and Viet Nam, but would
not remain neutral if a conflict
seemed to threaten the very exist-
ence of the Communist :egime in
The true position remains as
obscure as the warnings. BsiU the
warnings are a hint of change in
the world military picture.

ALGIERS (P)-Algerian Presi-
dent Ahmed Ben Bella yesterday
called on the people of Southern
Algeria to halt any "criminal ad-
venture" of an opposition leader
purged from the party and the
Ben Bella's speech was the third
indication in tihree days that hlis
government and old oppo-ition
opposition ft aces may be nearing
a showdown.
Even as he spoke, unofficial re-
ports reached the capital that
army troops aere heading for Bis-
kra, a possilule trouble spot in
Southeast Algeria.
Ben Bella announced the drum-
ming out of the army of Col.
Mohammed Chabani, who Tues-
day was expelled from the politi-
cal bureau and central committee
of the ruling National Liberation
Front (FLN).
Chabani, the wartime chief of
guerrillas in Southeast Algeria,
around Biskra, has been suspected
of trying to make a personal fief
out of the same region, where he
had been in cnarge of 20,000 to
30,000 troops of the national

AFL Attempts
To Organize
NEA Teachers
Associated Press Labor Writer
WASHINGTON-Amid bitter
charges, a battle is shaping up
over organized labor's efforts to
woo the nation's school teachers
away from their traditional or-
ganization, the National Educa-
tion Association (NEA).
The NEA's executive secretary,
Wihiam G. Carr, used the organi-
zation's national convention in
Seattle this week as a platform
to launch a major attack on an
AFL-CIO organi,,ing drive.
"It would destroy the NEA and
its state and local affiliates," Carr

whicn is spearheading the organ-

Although the NEA, ,' more
than t1s0,000 members, is nearly
10 tim-s the size of the Teachers'
Federation, the union has scored
some n o t a b 1 e successes that
doubled its membership in a rela-
tively short time.
Megel said his union has a rec-
ord of recent collective bargaining
victories affecting 70,000 teachers,
compared with only 7000 for the
"Mr. Carr's fears were expressed
because he kiows we have a po i-
tive program for classrocm teach-
ers and that the NEA is dominat-
