THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER T, 198fl U.S.-Russia Confine Plane 'Fights'to Verbal Bouts ican with By JOHN M. HIGHTOYVKR WASHINGTON, Sept. 7. I/ft Russia's handling of the [Korean plane • Incident w»« regarded by diplomats here today as evidence that the Soviet still 'wants to confine its conflict with tne United to diplomatic clashes. at Is the aim, too, of tile Amer- government'' In lt-s relations the Soviet-Communist bloc. In addition the United Slates has displayed in' the present incident •a determination not to deal directly with Moscow on a matter which it contends involves the United Nations. The point with respect to Russian policy is important because American authorities are convinced that Incidents nf this kind will occur In the future as, In (act. they have occurred in the past. Two American aircraft were shot dou-n by Yugoslavia in 1046 jvhrii that country was still firmly tied -to the Soviet, A United states naval plane was destroyer! over the Baltic Sea last April, allegedly by Soviet fighters. Only last month Red China charged that American aircraft had slraferl an air strip In Manchuria, and the United States conceded in the U.N. that was "a possibility. '' Rules of Cunlrnl Informed officials Fay incident* of this kind are frequently the. result of the fact that- airplanes, do not follow the same rules of control as other means of travel or attack In war. Boundary lines are mnre often than not obscure from the air/ One vessel may look- very tm'ch 'HXe another. Commander.* ' may feel lhat an aircraft can fl> ^£ intelligence mission over alien Writory and -get-back without he- Ing detected or caught. •f. Even Innocent Causes Even when the causes of the affair are Initially innocent, an Incident Is quickly caught up in the atmosphere. of hatred and suspicion which now dominates relations between the Communist countries and the rest of. the world. 'The' 'usual reaction of governments in such cases |s to rely upon diplomacy Ui handle complaints anc protests until they are ready for a showdown. Then an -incident may become a "shot heard round the world." For that reason any outburst or violence between nations is always potentially dangerous un- tii the reaction of' the responsible governments becomes known. There Is a striking similarity" between the Soviet reaction to the destruction of a Russian airplane by U.N. forces In Korean waters on Sept. 4 and the destruction of be American airplane over the. Bal- April, neliberate Snfxjtmp hile. Moscow, repeatedly charpcc ^- i'h*,'. American craft 'flew over tss'iari territory and ''" Ignorec Srnings to land, the United States asserted that the aircraft was unarmed and was shot down over 'the open waters of Ihe Baltic. Tlie plane 'was reported here to have been on a routine flight. American authorities still suspect the Soviets deliberately shot it down because they have come to consider, the Baltic a closed sea unrter Russian domination. In (heir first official reaction to the Korean plane incident, the Russians alleged yesterday that their aircraft shot down off Korea was unarmed and was many miles from the spot where the United States reported to the U.N. It was found • authorities here suspect .hat the Russians simply twj*l«l the American account of Ihe Baltic iffair to suit their own purpo*« in .hU instance. ..''..'• • « Navy Admits Plane Shooting WASHINGTON, Sept. «. ' W) — The Navy acknowledged today that two of its fighter planes »hot down the Russian bomber off Korea on Monday, - ; This was the first official word lhat American planes knocked off the twin-engined Soviet craft when, the u. S. charges, It attempted to ttack.United Nations naval forces. At the time the Incident 'was first reported ISje State Department said ihe bomber "'opened fire upon »-u.
