Some speculated Malik may have a new peace offensive In his briefcase, tying In with the so-called Stockholm petitions of the "partisans of peace" to outlaw atom bombs. They (oresaw some kind of mediation offer on Korea, with the Security Council as a propaganda sounding board. There was a thin-voiced group which expressed the hope that the Russians may be coming back for something concrete in the way of peace, the way they did on the Berlin blockade — after the Allied airlift beat It. The speed with which the Security Council held its emergency meeting June 25. on the heels of the North Korean Invasion, and its June 27, meeting authorizing military action, was believed to have been one of the factors that actually immobilized the Russians. Malik could not get his instructions fast enough from Moscow to enable him to end the boycott then. Russian delegates do not operate without instructions — and Moscow did not foresee the speed of U.N. action. It has had a month to shape Its new campaign. The August rotation term gives a convenient excuse to ut it Into action, whatever It is. 'erxog Given Okay WASHINGTON, July 28.
