MtrryGo-Round WASHINGTON - When Nlklta Khrushchev was ousted as Russia's commander-in-chief in 1964, there was much talk that the new leadership would devote great effort to patching up relations with Red China. At that time, this column predicted those efforts would fall flat - because the differences between Moscow and Peking were far more basic than simple disagreement over communist doctrines. They included the historic antagonism of the Russians toward the hordes from the east who once overran Russia; the Red Chinese challenge of Moscow as the world oracle on communism; their political and economic competition in other Asiatic countries and Africa; as well as their head- on conflict over whether communist nations could coexist with the capitalist world. The Red Chinese, we reported then, had grown in power arid influence to the point they regarded themselves as the only true prophets of communism. They were willing to reach an agreement with Moscow only if the Soviet leaders would bow to Peking's tarms completely. This is precisely the position the Chlneses communists so far have been able to enforce upon the Ho Chi Minn government in North Viet Nam - peace in the Viet Nam war is possibly only by ' complete surrender to communist demands. The grim men in the Kremlin, we predicted, would not and could not come to Red China's terms. It would mean among other things their abdication of world communist leadership to the Red Chinese, as well as abandonment of the co-existence policy and the upgrading of the standard of living in Russia which peaceful relations made possible. In the two and a half years since Khrushchev was kicked out, Soviet-Chinese relations have developed exactly as we predicted, culminating in Peking's rejection of the Soviet invitation to attend the communist party conference In Moscow this week. This is the final public admission that the Peking-Moscow split is beyond repair. The Red Chinese no longer are willing even to talk to the Kremlin.

First is the chance to negotiate an end to the Viet Nam war. Both the North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong sent delegations to Moscow, indicating that Red China's hold on Ho Chi Minn's government is weakening. And despite all the Soviet blasts against the U. S. role in the war, there is no question that the Kremlin would like to see it ended - for the sake of the coexistence policy as well as a rejection of Red Chinese influence. If the war is ended, and friendly relations restored with the United States, we could work together to combat Red China's inevitable atomic threat - perhaps even more dangerous to Russia than to the U. S. • If we resume friendly relations with Russia, De Gaulle's pullout from the North Atlantic Alliance will be less important, and less dangerous. It might well lead to a non-aggression pact between NATO and the Warsaw pact countries. Domestically, it would mean we again could look toward reduced arms expenditures, an easing of the present strain on our economy, a resumption of the all- out program for the Great Society. •. And to U. S. business, it could mean more trade with communist nations, with resultant help to the U. S. balance of payments and gold outflow. These are the opportunities the Red Chinese have, in effect, handed us by their rejection of any compromise with the Kremlin. What President Johnson will do with them is a question. - o - —MATTER OF TASTE ?— Sen, Paul Douglas, D-m., after being notified by the Food and Drug Administration that it would not approve the sale of fish flour because it was "unesthetic," checked into some other foods on the approved list. He found such delicacies as candied ants, candied bees and grasshoppers, canned caterpillars, and diamondback rattlesnake meat with Supreme Sauce, all OK'd for sale to the public. The Illinois Senator has been around Washington a long time but he admits even he is a little bewildered by this bureaucratic thinking. - o - —GOP TICKET FOR '68— , / Gov. Romney of Michigan has been working closely behind the scenes with Sen. Jacob Javits of New York, preparing for 1968, Javits has promised to help Rom- ney get the Republican Presidential nomination. If Javits can line up the huge New York delegation behind Romney, It will put Romney out In front and damage the prospects of Richard Nixon - who now claims New York as his home state. It also means a Romney-Javits ticket Is a very definite possibility. - o - —HIGHER MEDICAL COSTS— A confidential study of the new medicare law by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare warns that It probably will boost the cost of medical services. The law is so full of loopholes to protect doctors and hospitals that they will be able to charge Uncle Sam more than normal for medicare patients. This will have the effect of pushing up all fees. Thus It looks as If doctors and hospitals will get more benefits out of medicare than the elderly. - o - —SAIGON SMUGGLING— State Department investigators and customs agents are trying to stop the alarming smuggling of American supplies to the communist Viet Cong, They have discovered that the communists are not only getting American supplies, but .getting them delivered by American ships, thus saving the trouble of carrying them over the difficult Ho Chi Mlnh jungle trail. Here is how it works: South Vietnamese merchants right in Saigon set up phony companies and obtain import licenses for U. S. products. When they get these supplies, by American ships, they are resold to secret agents of the Viet Cong. For example, the Viet Cong have been able to buy all the American cement they want to fortify their underground bunkers - right in Saigon, Investigators are now trying to trace a shipment of Swiss watch parts, which mysteriously vanished. Their preliminary in- vestigation indicates that the American aid money intended to buy watch parts for South Viet Nam was used instead to buy machine tools for manufacturing communist arms. U. S. customs agents have been sent to Saigon ostensibly to train South Vietnamese officers, but actually to police the port and stop the smuggling. In one surprise raid they caught South Vietnamese smugglers swinging cargo over the side of an American ship onto another ship right In broad daylight.
