China Rejects Agreement on i Nuclear Ban Third Man Poses Storm ^ For Tories LONDON (UPD—Russian confirmation that Britain's notorious •'third man'* defected to the Soviet Union posed another political headache for Prime Minister Harold Macmillan in the House of Commons today. Macmillan was expected to face a new political storm despite an earlier agreement calling for no more questions in public about former British agent Harold A.R. (Kim) Philby. Moscow confirmed Tuesday that Philby had defected to communism, asked for asylum in Russia and requested Soviet citizenship. It described him as a "leading" member of British intelligence. On July 1 Lord Privy Seal Edward Heath identified Philby as the mysterious "third man' 1 who had warned turncoat diplomats Guy Burgess and Donald Maclean they were under British surveillance. Burgess and Maclean fled to the Soviet Union in 1951 after years of security service in the British Diplomatic Corps. Shortly thereafter, Philby was forced to resign because of his Communist connections. In 1955 Macmillan, then foreign secretary, told Parliament there was no hard evidence Philby tipped off Burgess and Maclean. < room. TOKYO (AP)-Red China officially rejected the U.S.-British- Soviet nuclear test ban agreement today in an attack on the Soviet government indicating Peking may be near a formal break with Moscow. A government statement distributed by the official New China news agency said tlie Peking regime would not adhere to the pact initialed in Moscow last week because the agreement's main purpose was to bar Red China from obtaining nuclear weapons. N The statement described the partial test ban pact as a "dirty fraud" and said it was designed "to prevent all the threatened peace-loving countries, including China, from increasing their defense capability." "The indisputable facts prove/' it said, "that .the policy pursued by the Soviet government is one of allying with the forces of war to oppose the forces of peace, allying with imperialism to oppose socialism, allying with the United States to oppose China, and allying with the reactionaries of all countries to oppose the people of the world." There is no record of a similar public criticism by the Peking government of the government of Russia. The language was the kind usually employed by a government which contemplates some serious step in relation to the other. Socialists Will Surrender to Face Charges BLOOMINGTON, Ind.

Ulbricht made the accusation before the East German Parliament. Ulbricht in effect accused the Western forces of buying goods in East Berlin for East marks bought in West Berlin at a rate more favorable than the official exchange. Ulbricht did not say whether his regime would attempt to prevent Western forces from entering the Communist part of divided Berlin or would try to search them on entering. American, British and French soldiers can move freely between East and West Berlin, provided they are in uniform. They are not subject to search at the crossing point in the Berlin wall. This is based on four- power agreements. 1 Federals Smash Counterfeiting Ring in Indiana FRANKFORT, Ind.
