War Mishap
Follows Radio Charge
By Peking; Rusk Says
UN Policy Remains
WASHINGTON (A) - Secretary
of State Dean Rusk said yester-
day the United States is looking
into a Peking charge that U.S.
planes strafed a Chinese village
near the Vietnamese border on
Sept. 9. But he said he had no in-
formation on any such action.
Rusk told a news conference
that the only information he had
been able to find on the incident
alleged by Red China was a Sai-
gon announcement the next day
reporting an encounter between
American planes and Communist-
built MIGs.
He did not identify the national-
ity of the MIG aircraft.
No Comment
Pentagon sources .had no imme-
diate comment on the Radio Pek-
ing report of a strafing attack.
Peking said two houses were dam-
aged and an ox was killed. One
American plane was damaged by
Red Chinese planes the report
'Rusk told his news conference
that "we will be checking further
into the matter."
In discussing a variety of other
questions, Rusk said:
'Major Obstanele' .
Communist China "is a major{
obstacle to settlement" of the Vi-
etnamese war and for this and
other reasons, such as China's
generally aggressive attitude, he
"was confident that 'a bid to seat:
China in the United Nations would
be defeated.
Rusk said he believed the pro-
Red Chinese move in the forth-
coming session of the U.N. Gen-
eral Assembly would be a turn-
back by "a substantial majority"
of U.N. members.
The United States is known to
have decided, following a prolong-'
ed review of its own opposition to'
a Red Chinese seat, to stand firm
on its policy in the General Assem-
bly meeting opening Tuesday in
New York.
Holding Stand
Rusk said the United States is
holding to its long-time stand and
this does not represent any new
4 decision in the sense of a major1
new policy determination.
On other subjects, Rusk said7
there is still no evidence of any
readiness in North Viet Nam tol
move toward talks on ending the
Vietnamese war.
French President Charles de
$ Gaulle in a recent speech in Cam-
bodia on the Vietnamese war fail-
ed to make "any suggestion" aboutI
what North Viet Nam and Red
China might do for peace inI
Southeast Asia.

MOSCOW (/)-The Soviet Un-i
ion sharply rebuked the Commun-
ist Chinese for their culturalt
crackdown on everything foreign.
"The more backward a country1
is technically, economically and
culturally," Pravda, the Commun-
ist party paper, said, "the more
she needs to draw on the best1
achievements of other peoples to,
overcome her backwardness."
Pravda said a true cultural rev-<
olution builds on the best of the
past, rather than rejecting it. The
article did not mention China by7
name but it clearly was aimed atI
Peking's "great proletarian cultur-
al revolution," especially its anti-
Soviet overtones.
Pravda said Soviet Communists
had rejected extreme leftist ele-
ments and implied that Chinese
Communists should do the same
in their own country.
It was the first direct comment
by the Soviet press against the
Chinese cultural upheaval, al-
though the press has reported,
without comment, on events in
Peking and reprinted anti-Chinese1
statements by other Communistt
Continuing this pattern, the So-t
viet government paper Izvestia
quoted a Spanish Communist pa-1
per as calling the Chinese cultural1
revolution "a scandalous attacki
against the Soviet Union and a1
stain on the history of the Chinese
revolutionary movement."E

Red Guards yesterday to halt at-
tacks on Dr. Sun Yatsen's widow,
who has been made a heroine of
the Chinese Communist revolution,
Tanjug news agency said.
Sun founded the first Chinese
republic in 1911. The Communists
have lionized the widow, Soong
Ching-ling, making her vice presi-
dent of the nation and heaping
other honors upon her.
The Tanjug dispatch from Pek-
ing indicated the rampaging young
Red Guards had also been dis-
respectful to the memory of Sun.

the Red Chinese capital.

By these accounts, Chou met
with Red Buards in the Parlia-
ment building Sept. 1. He told
them first there was no need to
remove busts of Sun from various
buildings. Then he admonished
them against pasting up posters
against Mrs. Sun.
By the Tanjug account, Chou al-
so demanded that the Red Guards
stop beating up Chinese and
throwing them out of their apart-
ments, and told them to quit des-
troying objects of art.
