. Department acknowledged with re-
gret vesterday there may have
been two instrusions of Communist
China's airspace since Sept. 1. But
it denied there was any bombing
of Chinese villages by U.S. aircraft
as charged by Peking.
Officials indicated it was the
first time that the United States
has made a public acknowledg-
ment of this kind, although last
year a statement was issued after
an American pilot was shot down
over the Chinese Communist is-
land of Hainan in the Gulf of
Tonkin. The State Department
said then it regretted that a navi-
gational error had occurred.
In 'the latest incidents, officials
made no attempt to question the
existence of a buffer zone extend-
ing some 30 miles below the Chi-
nese Communist border with
North Viet Nam.
No Comment
But official sources would not
discuss any operating orders that
may have been given to American
pilots on the action they may take
if they are jumped by enemy air-
craft. The question of hot pursuit
was termed an operational mat-
ter that could not be discussed.
State Department press officer
Robert J. McCloskey said there
hasebeen an investigation of Chi-
nese Commuist charges relating
to incidents on Sept. 9 and Sept.
S"There is a possibility some in-
advertent intrusion of Communist
China may have taken place dur-
ing the breakoff of air engage-
ments over North Viet Nam," Mc-
Closkey said.
Inadvertent Intrusion
"Any such inadvertent intrusion
is regretted. With regard to charg-
es of strikes on' Communist Chi-
nese territory, there have been no
such strikes by U.S. aircraft and
they would have been contrary to
Last Friday Secretary of State
Dean Rusk was asked at a news
conference about a Chinese Com-
munist protest that American
planes had bombed Chinese vil-
lages in Yunan Province and that
there had been an air battle with
Chinese MIG fighters.
Rusk said there had been an
announcement in Saigon after the
alleged incident, in which it was
reported that U.S. pilots encount-
ered some MIG fighters about 30
miles south of the Chinese fron-
Look Further.
"We will be looking into it fur-
ther, of course, to see if there was
any possibility of any mistake,"
Rusk said.
McCloskey said his public state-
ment would be the only action the
U.S._ government is taking. He did
not identify the nationality of the
MIG aircraft encountered over
North Viet Nam.
He also was unable to say how
many planes were involved, how
deep the instrusion had been, or
whether the MIGs were flown
by Chinese, North, Vietnamese or
other pilots.

The jibe at the pontiff, obvious-
ly written after the Pope's latest
encyclical letter appealing for
peace, was a retort to his remark
of Aug. 31 after Red Guard at-
tacks on Roman Catholic nuns in
China. The Pope had said then,
"this could appear a sign of death,
not life."
The Red Guards have been criti-
cized abroad for such activities as
parading teachers, scientists and

women and attacking religious in-
The editorial, however, seemed
to admonish the Red Guards. It
told them to follow army rules of
obedience to orders, speaking po-
litely, not hitting or swearing at
people, not damaging crops, not
taking liberties with women or ill
treating captives.
Nevertheless, reports continued
of violent activities. The Soviet
news agency Tass reported from
Peking another humiliation of a
provincial party leader, denounced
by the Red Guards as a "black
bandit" and dragged through the
streets by a mob. The victim was

"Of course," he added, "if it

"In my view, two additional

to the view that it would be un-

In his call for immediate ne-

leaders have achieved no steps
toward peace.
Extinguish Conflagration
In his newest dramatic appeal
for political leaders to "prevent
the further spread of the confla-
gration and even to extinguish it
entirely," the Pope said:
"We are threatened by a more
extensive and more disastrous
calamity that endangers the hu-
man family, even as a bloody and
difficult war is raging, particu-
larly in areas of East Asia."
