,1* MONDAV, MM* 1, 1963 ALTON TfitEGftAPtt Russia-China Split Certain tly JAMfcS Prow Annlyat (AP) ** A ghat' terlhg Ruaslan-tted Chinese spilt, something the most cunning Western statesmen could not have engineered, seems certain now, perhaps this week. > If tills doesn't drive Russia closer to the West, at least it will force her to divert more of her thinking and resources to coping with Red China In Asia and elsewhere. This will be the best break for the alllpg since the cold war began. But It doesn't mean world peace Is any 'closer or that the Atlantic partners will have sense enough to make the most of the crack in the enemy camp. On the contrary, they may start cutting capors of their own until they, too, make a mess of themselves. They slood together solidly enough when they felt intense pressure and danger from Russia. When Premier Khrushchev seemed to relax, they began to relax and to assert their ancient nationalism, which Was exactly the basic cause of the Russian-Chinese split. French Grandeur French President de Gaulle buffeted both the United States and Britain in what seems to be his dream of a French grandeur which belonged in another ccn tury. It is his way of trying to establish new French leadership in Europe. He barred Britain from the European Common Market, challenged America's loyalty to its allies if they were attacked, and, using this for an excuse, is making his own nuclear weapons over American protests. This is probably only the beginning of the allies' problems with one another. But if all these problems melted tomorrow, the Russian-Red Chinese split still wouldn't bring world peace closer. Last week Secretary General U Thant of the United Nations guessed the Chinese Communists would explode their first atomic bomb tins yqar or next. They have been working on it for years with little or no help from Russia. Just as De Gaulle is unwilling to let the United States have a monopoly on nuclear weapons in the West, the Red Chinese are un- willir|g to let Russia have a monopoly in the East. Differences between the two Communist giants, growing worse by the year, recently became so bad that the meeting they arranged for next Friday in Moscow to discuss them may wind up in an explosion. Tost Takes Meanwhile, the United States and Britain had arranged to meet in the same place with the Russians July 15 to discuss a nuclear lest ban. There's not much optimism about the outcome of that, either. A triple dubiety — with the United States, Russia and Red China all distrusting, one another —is hardly a happy foundation for a test ban agreement between the United States and Russia, even if one could be reached. There would still be the Red Chinese to Uiink about. Would they agree not to test, just because the United States and Russia had agreed not to? Hardly. Would the . United States and Russia, if they could reach agree ment, keep it if they saw the Red Chinese testing. It isn't likely. The Red Chinese complaint thul the Russians aren't aggressive enough is probably a thin excuse for deeper discontents: their rival nationalisms, their eventual con fllct over living space In Asia, and Russia's skimpy help to the Red Chinese before and after they took power. All in all, the Russian-Red Chinese split could be a turning point In history for the West, something to cheer about, but the Westeri partners will probably find ways to offset Oils by causing them selves trouble if the Communists don't.

Russia Believed To Have Fired Neiv test Shot WASHINGTON (AP) - The Atomic Energy Commission says it has inconclusive evidence of possible recent Soviet nuclear tests of very low 'yield, "The evidence remains Jnconslu- sive and it is expected that more definite conclusions must await further evidence and analysis," an AEG spokesman said in a brief announcement prompted by published speculation of such tests. An informed source said a Soviet test in the range of one kiloton apparently did take place June 12, two days after President Kennedy. announced the halt of any further U.S. atmospheric tests provided other nuclear nations also refrainfcJ. However, the prevailing guess among Washington officials was that if the Soviets did conduct a test, it was an Underground rather than -an atmospheric explosion.
