FRIDAY, NOVEMBER ?4, wso BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.Y COURIER NEW» New UN Offensive May Boost Chances For Peaceful Settlement with China f AO1 EtETOlf WASHINGTON, Nov. 24i W) — Diplomatic authorities said today the U,N. general offensive in Korea will not, hurt and may boost any possible chances ( for a peaceful border settlement with the Chinese Communists. ... .The timing of the big push — which Gen.. Douglas MacArthur called the drive to end the conflict :—was decided on •military rather € an, diplomatic considerations, ac rdlng to these fully-Informed au. thorltles. . The,fact that It was undertaken on the eve of the arrival of a Chinese Communist delegation at United Nations headquarters In New York was described as entirely co. Incidental. Nevertheless, predominant opinion among administration leaders appears ,to be that this show- o: ' strength and determination to • achieve a complete victory In Korea may hasten any negotiations which the Chinese are willing to undertak on the question of an arrangemen o protect their border IntertsU. Next Few D»yi Critical As regards the long-stand Ing un- ertalnty over whmt Chln«'» real intentions tre, the next lew dayi or hours are critical. If the Chines* Reds under Moscow pressure intend to make an all-out fight against U.N. forces, :hey can b« expected to begin pour- ng reinforcements across the Yalu River promptly. On the other hand, if their Intentions are less hostile, If they have been making merely a token show of assistance to the Korean Communists or have other limited objectives, they are expected to hold their main forces north of the 005- der while their troops In Korea fall back under U.N. pressvire. Washington officials told a reporter that in ordering the drive now under way, General MacArthur was acting under his broad orders to smash Communist aggression and restore peace to Korea. The only limiting order which he h»d, these officials said, was and Is to avoid any attacks across the Korean hor- ded into Manchuria or Siberia, That restriction includes aerial bombardment of strategic Man- churlan centers. In addition, It was said, there Is a general understanding between Washington and Tokyo that no American troops will drive up to the Korean-Siberian border. That phase of the cleanup campaign—on the eastern sector of the front—is to be left to the^ South Korean forces The Idea is to eliminate any chance of Incldente between Russian and American troops.
