Advocate (Newspaper) - June 5, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 29 TELEPHONE HI 6-14S1 VICTORIA, TEXAS, FRIDAY, JUNE 5, 1964 Russians Near Break With Mao Call Issued To 'Surrender' MOSCOW Kremlin pushed its conflict with Peking rearer the brink Thursday by declaring it will not make con- cessions and calling on the Chi- nese lo surrender to Moscow's line. The Soviet Communist part" newspaper Pravda indicated Premier Khrushchev and his ad- visers have little if any hope left of avoiding a formal Break in Communist party relations with Red China. The article appeared a few hours after the Soviet govern- ment newspaper Izvostia had accused Peking of ignoring the Chinese-Soviet treaty ot al- liance. Resigned To Split The combination ot articles in the two official voices of the So- viet Union drew this picture: 1. The world Communist movement is resigning itself to the split. 2. The two biggest Communist powers are going their separate nationalistic ways. Pravda accused the Chinese of seeking "to split the world Com- munist movement to further their nationalistic, chauvinistic and far-reaching hegemonislic aims." This returned repeated Chi- nese charges that Moscow is corrupting the movement to ben- efit Soviet national policy. Pek- ing accuses the Kremlin ot going soft on revolution because the Soviet Union is getting too pros- perous to be concerned about spreading communism. Scorn for Treaties Izvestia said China "is openly expressing its scorn for agree- ments and treaties with Commu- nist countries." It accused Peking of failing to keep Moscow properly informed of its actions as arranged in the military and economic allianace signed shortly after communism won the China mainland. Izves- tia' also said China is reducing economic' ties with the Soviet bloc while expanding .item other countries, This has aroused speculation among Western observers here that the Soviet Union might break diplomatic relations with China. But a freeze is considered more likely at present. Approaching Rapidly A break in party relations, however, is coming fast. Pravda said "the majority of Communist parlies hi all regions of world" supports early convocation of a meeting of par- ties on the Chinese-Soviet dis- pute. Previous Soviet statements have mentioned this fall. Com- munists do not want a split Pravda declared in the article. '.'But unity cannot be attained through concessions on matters of principle nor does it come by itself." That drew the battle line. To avoid a split, Pravda de dared, "it is necessary for the Chinese leaders to revert to the common platform of the Com- munist movement, lo stop the political struggle they are wag mg." The platform drawn up at the last meeting of world parties, in Moscow in I960, was accepted with reservations by the Chinese then and denounced since.

UNSOUND Europeans Concerned At Goldwater Victory LONDON Euro- pean newspapers, from London to Moscow, expressed dismay and disapproval Thursday at Sen. Barry Goldwater's victory in the California primary. Some voiced the hope he could still be stopped from winning the Republican nomination for pres- ident. A Canadian paper said, "He must be stopped." The European press seldom has reacted so sharply to an American domestic political event. As is the custom, Euro- pean political leaders weren't speaking for publication. Untilnow most European edi- tors had generally considered the Arizona senator a phenom enon from the Far West, some of whose more extreme expres- sions on foreign policy were not to be taken loo seriously. But. after the California pri- mary, editors went to unusual lengths in decorating Goldwater with such derogatory nicknames as "Rip Van Winkle" and "Dr. to mention a .Moscow newspaper's dtnuncl- ation of him as a "Neanderthal man." An editorial In Lord Beaver- brook's London Dally Express said Britain should not rely on the United States for a nuclear shield if the Americans were go- some er were not sistance ing -to elect a president lik' Goldwater. The Express editorial added "Goldwater's striking success in the California and other pr: maries shows that many Amer cans share his isolationist ten i.
