RYAN AP Special Correspondent Whatever the announced outcome of the Soviet-Chinese Communist talks in Moscow, the war setween the two parties seems more intense than ever, and the battle is spreading alarm throughout the world Communist movement. Communists face the prospect f other factional divisions hav- ng little to do directly with the Moscow-Peking split but resulting rom its example. Red China's negotiating team in Moscow is pressing hard for a meeting of Communist leader? from the nearly 90 parties arounc the world. This would provide a platform for airing Chinese grievances against the Russians. The Chinese demand for such a meeting on Peking's own harsh terms seems more like psychological warfare against Premier Khrushchev than it does a proposal seriously aimed at settling differences. Khrushchev undoubtedly takes a dim view of Peking's reported suggestion that voting in a world Communist meeting be based on population. China backed by big parties from the populous Asian nations, would snow under Khrushchev's supporters. Acceptance of that Chinese proposal would be a sign _ that Khrushchev had suffered a set back serious enough to imperil his leadership.
