of that rumored division between the Kremlin and Red China It savored too much of wishful thinking It would be just dandy to see Nikita Khrushchev and Mao Tse tung battle unto death with the free world looking on Once we wished that same thing about A Hitler and J Stalin It was the very attractiveness of that prospect that made me wary But in recent weeks in fact within the past month there have been some developments which simply couldnt be brushed aside as wishful think ing The evidence of funda mental differences between the Marxism of Moscow and the Marxism of Peiping is so abund ant and so well documented as to constitute conclusive proof Let nobody however conclude that the United States can drop its guard for even a moment The fundamental premise on which the Kremlin and Red China part company is this The Kremlin is operating on the theory that Communism can gain its ends without war while Red China is contending with all FAIRandWARMER North U w a Generally fair Monday

command war nuclear war is in evitable IF ONE COULD KNOW pre cisely what went on recently at the Communist summit confer ence in Moscow and finding out wont be quick or easy we could judge how deepseated the cleavage between the two great sectors of Marxism and Leninism really is In the closing stages of the extended meeting P r a v d a harped away at the folly in volved in precipitating a suicidal nuclear war In China the offi cial Peoples Daily of Peiping ridiculed peaceful coexistence and contended that World War III is inevitable Nothing even approaching a full story about the conference is contained in the voluminous watereddown report pawned off on the public last week The purpose quite obviously was to conceal and confuse not reveal or clarify With the slogan Everyone a Soldier Mao Tsetung has been pulling together a militia which could involve 300 million persons ultimately The goal has seemed to be the creation of a human sea of armed men which in the words of one Chinese Red leader no modern weapon can destroy There is somber evidence that the immediate aim of the militia program is to regiment even more tightly the tens of millions of Chinese who have been forced into the human anthills of the Commune system All Chinese between 16 and 50 both sexes are to be included it seems NOTHING is quite so cheap in China as human life Nuclear war holds its terror for most of the world including Russia But leaders in Red China foresee ultimate victory in sheer num bers Though millions might and undoubtedly would die in a nuclear war theres a coldly calculating confidence that no foe would occupy the vast reach es of China A tipoff to this rift between Moscow and Peiping is con tained in the studied refusal of Russia to share its nuclear weapons or its nuclear secrets with China Word the other day that China on its own was on the brink of evolving a nuclear weapon is reported to have caused pronounced con sternation in Moscow With his authority over the world Communist movement un der challenge Khrushchev has been busy rallying Communist bloc support against Mao Tse tung ever since the breakdown of the Paris summit conference in May The Red China attitude may have been reflected in Khrushchevs course of action He didnt want anybody as pop ular as Dwight D Eisenhower Continued on Page 2 GlobeGazette weather data up to 8 am Sunday Maximum 31
