' PLANE from Page 1 shooting incident occurred at all. Several Possibilities Several possibilities ar« the sub- Icct of speculation among officials here. One is that the Soviet gov- ernmmt has determiner! to try to close the Baltic, a key Russian defense nrea on Its eastern shores, to' American fltghls nnrl has resorted to an act of terror to accomplish this, Another possibility Is that the Russians sent out fighters to Inves- LlRnte the American ' plane even though It was over International waters and (hat one of the figliter pilots fired In « trigger-happy moment. A third possibility Is that the Russian fighters were tinder orders to force the plane to land In the hope of thereby capturing whatever secret American equipment, If any, might be aboard. New And Tougher The next American moves in the situation therefore nre based on the assumption that the United Sttites is up against a new and tougher development of anti-American policy on the part of the Soviet Union. Insofar as flight of American planes In the Baltic area are concerned, the government conceivably may decide to slop them as a means of avoiding further Incidents or to arm the planes so 'that they may defend themselves If attacked. The situation Ims overtones of meaning which some officials believe may be significant lit other areas also. It could indicate, for example. a much tougher line of Russian action In Germany, particularly with respect to Berlin.
