By Associated l»r«»s W.^SHINGTON — Some Anieri- can diplomats view the top-level Chinese - Russian conference in Moscow as mainly a "begging expedition" by the Chinese Reds. These officials speculate that the Chinese are dissatisfied with Russia's promises and would plead for: 1. More financial aid to supplement the 300-millton-dollar loan Moscow promised in February, 1950. 2. Bigger and faster shipments of Russian-made military supplies ^or hard-pressed Chinese Communist troops in Korea. 3. Rtnoval of Russian troops from Port Arthur and return to Red China of the Changchun Railway as promised by the end of this year. Experts on Russian and Chinese affairs here feel the purpose of the huddle is aimed at finding ways to continue the Korean War rather than at any policy change which might mean peace in the Far East. ALLIES PLAN BIG WAR DRILL; REDS PROTEST By Associated Press COPENHAGEN — The free world will parade its military power along the North European rim of the Soviet empire ne.xt month in the biggest combined exercises ever staged by the Atlantic Pact nations. From the Prussian-dominated Baltic Sea in the south to the Norwegian-Soviet frontier in the far North, hundreds of warships and planes and thousands of troops wiU be thrown into "battle" against imaginary aggressor forces striking out from behind the Iron Curtain. As preparations for "Operation Mainbrace" gathered speed, Communist propaganda screeched into high gear. Describing the defense e.xercise as an "unheard-of provocation" against the Soviet Union, the Red press ominously hinted that "this new proof of Western aggressive intentions" might easily "lead to THE WEATHER •y Aisociatvd Press Showers sprinkled much of the nation today, but missed Texas, which is baking in the third week of a crop-withering heat wave. Scattered thundershowers were reported in the Southeast northward to the Ohio Valley and Middle Atlantic states. Another area of thunder-showers dampened the Plains states and Rocky Mountains. The mercury headed for the 100-plus degree mark in North and Central Te.vas for the 17th day this month. With no hope of relief in late forecasts, some 200 larniers and ranchers, meeting in Abilene, Te.x. asked Gov, Allan Shivci-s to request drough disaster area status for the entire state. They represented 18 West Texas counties. Farmers and stockmen faced with dry tanks, seared pastures and rangelands and rising feed costs, sent their stock to market only to find depressed prices due to the unseasonal movement. Pleasant temperatures prevailed from the Northeast states westward across the Great Lakes and Northern Plains. Cooler weather prevailed in the Pacific Northwest.

William Harrison, senior U. N. Command armistice delegate, said today he thought "an armistice is possible but I haven't the faintest idea when." He made the observation at a news conference shortly after U. N. and Communist negotiators traded acid words for an hour at Panmunjom and made "no visible progress" toward settlement of the truce-blocking issue of prisoner exchange. The delegations called a fourth straight week-long recess. Gen. Nam II, senior Red delegate, protested, then agreed to setting the ne.xt meeting for Aug. 27. ^ On chances of the talks to succeed.
