oviet Dilemma: Stalinist Revival or Chin

a Split

By The Associated Press
At the risk of frightening its
own people by reviving the spec-
ter of Stalinism, the Soviet Com-
munist party has laid down what
probably are its final terms for
reconciliation with the Red- Chi-
nese. Chances are the Kremlin.has

the Kremlin sought to absolve it-
self of blame for the rupture. It
replied to violent abuse with a
soft answer and an offer of com-
promise. Now the Kremlin can tell
the world Communism that the
rest is up to Red China, that Pe-
king must bear the responsibility.

Leonid I. Brezhnev, the Soviet
party chief, told the congress his
party was "prepared to do every-
thing possible" to mend relations
with Peking. But some Chinese de-

mands, from Moscow's viewpoint
are downright impossible.
For example, Peking wants the
Kremlin to concede that virtually
every policy step Moscow has tak-
en since 1956 has been wrong and
should be reversed. It has demand-
ed what would amount to a pub-
lic apology to Red China and an
abject admission of guilt for all
that happened to the movement
in the past 10 years.
Obviously, the Russians won't
oblige. The U.S.S.R. is the domin-
ant power in the Communist world.
The party would not put itself in

the position of knuckling under
to any other.
To many ears, the Chinese have
been abusive and insulting while
the Kremlin held its tongue, pre-
serving its dignity.
The Chinese have not confined
themselves to blasting Soviet world

They have also made scorching at-

WASHINGTON - President
Johnson called yesterday upon
every agriculturally advanced
country in the world-principally
Canada, Australia and France-to
join with tihe United States in a
massive program to avert famine
in India.
In a special message to Con-
gress, the President said the facts
are simple, their implications are
grave - India faces an unprece-
dented drought.
"Unless the world responds, In-
dia faces famine," he warned.
The President said India esti-
mates a food grain deficit of six
to seven millions tons through
next December beyond what has
now been promised to her.

The exact amount of arms aid
is not available because of a 1962

But informed sources estimate
that the United States spent $1.65
billion on arms for Viet Nam from.

SAIGON-About 200 U.S. caval-
rymen battled at a clearing in the
central highlands y e s t e r d a y
against a powerful Viet Cong as-
sault force that perhaps outnum-
bered them 5 to 1. Several heli-
copters were reported shot down.

The outcry stemmed from a col-
lision of a vehicle,. carrying eight
Marines, and a bus loaded with
members of a Vietnamese drivers'
union who were staging a parade.
A Marine security guard told news-
men the only damage to the bus
was a bent license plate.
There was some commotion in
the street before the Marines drove
off and one Vietnamese charged
that they had beaten him with
rifle butts. This was denied by
various witnesses, including a U.S{
Army captain.
But a spokesman. for the dem-
onstrators said they were pressing
the charge and would telegraph a
demand to President Johnson for
an apology. He said they wanted
a reply within 48 hours.
If Johnson's answer is not agree-
able, he said, "we will do some-
thing." He did not say what.
A Marine spokesman said the
incident is being investigated.
The city itself has been declar-
ed off limits to American service-
