It was captured by George Ilollette, Company D, Seventh Iowa Infantry, from a Mississippi company at the Battle of Corinth (Miss.) on Oct. 4,1862. Ftollette gave the flag to the state of Iowa and Musgrove says it would break faith with Rollette if the flag is returned to Mississippi. The Mississippi group called a news conference Wednesday to ask the secretary ot defense to retrieve the flag from the Iowa museum.

By CHARLES P. WALLACE MOSCOW (DPI) - The Soviet Union has made a stinging new attack against China that one analyst calls the strongest in almost 10 years. The blunt rhetorical broadside was contained in a formal letter of protest given to the Chinese embassy here May 19 by the Soviet Foreign Ministry. The text of. the note was published Thursday by the government newspaper Izves- tia. ·The' note implicated high Chinese officials in a campaign, 'of "lies and slander" against Moscow. It accused Peking of preaching that a world war is "inevitable and even desirable." "There are some in China who hypocritically represent the deliberately mounted anti- Soviet campaign as some principled argument. But what can there be in common between an ideological argument and actions that cannot be qualified;·'as anything but malicious slander, abuse and provocation^'the note said. " (The Chinese' Communist newspaper People's Daily warned today of "unbridled and ominous Soviet moves" in a drive for domination of the seas and said they would lead to war. ('·'Prompted by its ambitions for'.world hegemony, Moscow has thrown itself into an intense contest with the United States for the domination of the seas ..." the newspaper said. Ex. cerpts were broadcast and monitored in Hong Kong.) One Western analyst said the Soviet protest appeared to be :'just short of threatening action" against the Chinese. He said It was the strongest such attack since the Soviet-Chinese border clashes of the late 1960s. No specific action was threatened, but the note concluded with the warning that "the Chinese leaders are assuming a great responsibility to their people for the consequences of continuing this campaign." The only hint, of 'possible action was the note's statement that.Peking had violated the "elementary norms", of'rein-, tions between, 'states with diplomatic relations, which · raised the possibility .of a complete.break with. Peking.. The note puzzled. some Western diplomats, because no specific problem was singled -out. . The diplomats also described the timing as odd, coming as it did just days before the central committee meeting Tuesday that brought Soviet leadership changes and the approval of a new draft constitution. Following the death last September of Chinese Communist Parly chairman Mao Tse- Tung, the Soviet propaganda apparatus was retooled after years of ideological bickering and refrained from criticizing Peking. Western diplomats believed the Soviets were hoping for a reconciliation with the new Chinese leadership even though the Chinese never abated their attacks against Moscow.
