In Ihe country. , What Is not known Is which of China's DOO million people he will meet; whether he will gel facc-to-face {exposure to the famous thoughts of Chairman Mao Tsc : tung; the usually invisible head of the Chinese Communist party; and whether, like President Nixon, he will wind up endorsing ihe Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence. On' 1 ' Peking's firmest principle, that there Is no "one China, one Taiwan" but only one China with Taiwan included, Waldheim's position is already well established, It is, quite simply, Peking's position. ESTABLISHED Waldhelm established it soon after he became secretary-gen; eral at the beginning of this year. He confirmed the decision of his predecessor, U Thant, to deny U.N. press credentials to two correspondents of the Chinese Nationalist government's Central News Agency. In fact, in disaccrediting, Ihe correspondents and ordering them out of the building in the engage Ihe Unllcd Nations from Taiwan because he Is; the chief administrative; officer of the U.N. secretariat. ·'In the, Unllcd: Nations, generally, · tlic Chinese .have not lyrned oul to be the bogeymen lhat they, were palnlcfl In years gone by I h e I r then worst enemies, the Americans. ' OLD RAYS In the old days, from afar, ' By JAMES R. PEIPERT :· MOSCOW (AP) -- The Soviet Union and China are feuding publicly again over their border in Asia. . Publication In Peking of -a hew Chineso world atlas opened the latest round in the dispute that lias its origins centuries ago, when Czars and emperors ruled the two countries. -·"The authors .of this geographical study," the S o v i e t government newspaper Izvestia said Monday night, "are trying to justify the territorial claims of the Chinese leadership!to B4 million square kilometers of age-old Soviet territory." This equals 579,000 square miles. The lengthy article: was - c a l l e d "Geography, Maoist Style." In 19G3 -- as Chinese- Soviet relations, rapidly 'disintegrated -- China aired vague claim to the same amount of land in. Siberia anc the Soviet Far East. ·· The Chinese argued that the lands had been taken ''by treaties imposed unfairly on the weak imperial Chinese govern ment in the 19th Century. RUSSIAN CLAIM The Soviet claim is based on physical possession of the area as well as Russian exploration and settlement of the eastern reaches of Siberia in the early 17lh Century and their forma annexation in 1649. . Russia ceded tie territov; back to China in 1090 and 1728 But Moscow contends these treaties were "unequal and un fair," the same charge China raises against the 19th Century Aygun and Peking Treaties un der which Russia recovered th territory. "The People's Republic fchina is. . .the only big stat whose I e a dersh i p picksterrito rial quarrels with its neighbor in the North and South, in th East and West," Izvestia said "Those who put forward absur demands to the USSR .. should recall the way the Sovie people regard such claims." This could be reference I the battle on March 2, 1969, hi veen Soviet and Chinese roops at Damasky 'Island, in ie Ussuri River, which frms ie Far Eastern frontier. It as the first of five armed lashes, officially announced nd protested, and hundreds of esser incidents during the fol- otlng six rnonths. The' Soviet side'reported 31 lead and' 14 . injured in the March 2 clash, the Chinese ave : no casualty report. NEGOTIATIONS Premier Alexei N. Kosygin lew to Peking in September 969 and arranged for border icgoliations which are still gong on, but' there .has been' no ndication of any progress lo vard an agreement. Both governments' continue to eef up their frontier military "orces. An American expert on Ihina, Prof. Lucian Pye of the Massachusetts Insitute ' of Technology, said last month the Russians have more than one million soldiers on their side of ;he border. hurried closing days of his 10 years as secretary-general Thant had given in to growing pressure from the new Peking delegation.

In 1969 he was told the experiment had been reviewed and that nothing could be done'for the participants in the Tuskegee Study. '·' 'The Tuskegee Study is a 40- year .experiment conducted in Macon County, Ala., by the Public Health Service to determine the effects-of'untreated syphilis. Some 400 black men suffering from, the disease In 1932 were enrolled In the experiment and ngver received any treatment for the disease. At' least seven died as a dlrecl result of untreated syphilis. his home in AtlaiHa, Brown, Who i now Is retired, confirmed the 1 main points of Buxlun's story. But he declined to comment on any moral questforis concerning the study as a whole or Ihe decision not to administer penicillin to participants in Ihe 1940s. "I wasn't even around then, ' he said. "Bul 1 do know why we made the decision we did in 1968 and 1869. When a person has had syphilis as long as the men we were dealing with at that time and the disease has aused no' serious side effects, ie chances are excellent that never will." Even DENIED after World · War II held to make it a potential "state party?: to. Ihe treaty. With Waldheim's visit to Peking, he will have, been to the capitals of all five permanent members of the Security Council. He was in Washington in January, Paris and London in April and Moscow in July.

Police said Evans' southbound car crossed the median and overturned in the northbound lane. Space Plight Center says he has discovered a way for astronauts lo remain in continuous communication with earth while landing on the far side of the. moon. The key to ^he technique would be a communications satellite orbiting an invisible point 40.000-miles beyond the moqn, says Robert W. Farquhar,' the engineer-mathematician who developed the idea. By orbiting that point, rather than the moon itself, the satellite could keep watch on any desired- location on the back side of the moon while maintaining constant communication with earth, Farquhar says. From earth, the satellite would appear to describe a sort ,of halo around the moon, ompting Farquhar to label it e halo satellite. The halo satellite would orbit 2, one of five libration points lere the gravitational pull of e earth and moon are equal.. Farquhar says he presented the halo-satellite Idea to space agency officials in time'for it lo be used on the Apollo 17 spa- ceflight.scheduled for this December: IDEA VETOED He- said that budget-conscious officials at the National Aeronautics and Space , Administration vetoed the idea because of $50 million added cost; Lunar scientists are eager to discover whether the far side of the moon has the same general composition .as the front .side, They are ' particularly curious about the absence cf mares, or dry seas, which are so numerous on the front side. However, space officials have been reluctant to attempt a far- side landing without some Shriver Nomination Expected By Democratic Parly ' WASHINGTON (AP) Democrats arc expected to nominate Sargent Shriver as their new vice-presidential candidate tonight, amid growing predictions that he can help unify the p a r t y for the uphill struggle against President Nix- Domo'cralic National Com- millee members spoke warmly of Shriver, chosen by president i a l c a n d i d a t e George McGovern as his new running- mate, as they prepared to make the selection official dur InK a 7:30 p.m. meeting. - CREDENTIALS But before taking up its main business, the DNC this aflcr- noon must sctllc credenllals challenges' to members from five slales.

But nobody would say what was, discussed or what progress, if any, was made. Both sides are operating under delicate conditions. Whitelaw faces the possibility o f . backlash from the Protestant ( rnajqrity for talking to the Catholics while violence persists.
