THITRJSDAT, AUGUST 17, 198* BLYTHEVTLLE, (ARK.) COURIER KtlW» PAGE FTVE Some Officials Believe Russia May Grab Korea Above 38th Parallel BX JOHN M. HiGirrowER * WASHINGTON, Ml?. 17. (AP) — Many of the beM. informed American officials now believe Russia will openly grab off North Korea—above th* 38th Parallel—rather than let 'ijisUmcHis U.K. restore peace and '•W? to the country. It LI assumed here that the pre- cis* steps lo be taken h»vc been under negotiation between the Soviet Union and Communist China. It Is also assumed they will act jointly when the Lime comes. Re-porls rHwounled AdministrAtion officials, however, five little credence to reports wliic'.i have come mainly from Chinese Nationalist sources that Rus-lan Viet Premier V. M. Mololov has been in Pelping, Red Chinese cr.p- ital, negotiating with Premier Mso Tse Tims and other officials on this and related problems. Whether Molotov has or has not been there, the belief of responsible authorities here is that the Soviet: and Chinese must br deeply involved in fateful talks a! this time, concerning tint onl> Kurji but Fovmosi and other Far Eastern political questions.

Or should they drive on in the belief that only by cru-h- io; the Communist, military power can real peace be established in Korea? There is wide-spread belief here that the latter course Is the only ttefensivle one. This belief, however, is ba,<ed on an assumption that neither Russia'nor Communist China will become directly engaged In the Korean conflict. British-Chinese Exchange Fire HONG KONG. Aug. 11.
