In an editorial on its front page, the paper also said that Peking's campaign to mobilize its people for war wilh the Soviet Union was a political move and hardly a serious threat to the Soviet people. "U goej without saying that the distance is very great between the loud statements and the real possibilities of the Peking Krasnaya Zvezda said. The Soviet armed forces were praised by Ihe paper, which gave the impression that China would hardly dare to srovoSe a real war wilh the Soviet Union. Halt War Scare The editorial underscored the Soviet government's efforts to prevent a war scare developing among the Soviet population In tfie wake of last week's border clash wilh China in centra] Asia. The clash apparently was Ihe sharpest since the fighting last March along the Ussuri River. Soviet leaden are thought to want to prevent hoarding and any other panic signs that could develop if the people anticipated a war. There are no signs in Moscow, at least, of any such war fears. The line being stressed In media is that the latest lattle was provoked by the Chinese for fntemal political reasons and that the attack was not a prelude to a larger-scale action. The youth newspaper, Komso-molskaya Pravda, for Instance said that a Swiss-made Bolex movie camera was found with he name of Van I-Bin on case. The paper said thai Van I-BiD was a "well-known" documen-ary film-maker in China and tad already made one anti-Soviet film. The report that his presence on Ihe field of battle indicated that the attack was well-planned.
