New York (Jov. Nelson Rockefeller, Sen. Eugene McCarthy, and other American politicians hint at pledges to the voters that they will permit "no more Vietnams." An official newspaper In Shanghai says for the first time that "civil war" is a definite threat in parts of mainland China. Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey says that the U.S. embargo on trade with Com' munist China is not serving the national interest. He wants a 'persistent effort to open up China, and to get away from he isolation of China" to a pol- cy of peaceful engagement with relationship between her.

Authorities quickly concluded that they were victims of clashes between Maoist and anti • Maoist factions in the Pearl River Delta area of the China mainland. Apparently they were captured, tortured, executed, and dumped into the river, which carried them into waters off Hong Kong. Those bodies seem to attest to the belief held in diplomatic and intelligence circles that conflict between Mao's "revolutionary committees" and opponents labeled as "revisionists, counterrevolutionaries, and traitors" has reached an intensity beyond anything imagined by the outside world. The editorial in Wen Hui Pao, the Shanghai newspaper, seems to confirm this. What it means to the American public is this: no Presi dential candidate can speak meaningfully about peace, or say there will be "no more Vietnams," until he has spoken frankly about what his policies will be toward Communist China. In this most populous country in the world, where a mass nervous breakdown seems under way, the evidence is that the Mao extremists are holding the upper hand. This, of course, is the faction that promotes virulent armed struggle to "liberate" other countries of Asia — and even Africa and Latin America — from the "capitalist reactionaries." If this clique holds power in China, very clearly the next President of the United States will not have a total say as to whether there will be other Vietnams. How, then, do people out here read Humphrey's proposal that the U.S. act unilaterally to ease the atmosphere of hostility between Washington and Peking? Some recognize it as partly a political gesture to reestablish himself as a liberal thinker, and one who resists a fanatical policy on Communism that might draw the country into new wars. But the greater interest here in Asia is in what effect the new policy proposed by Hum phisy might have on Communist China itself. No one expects Mao to respond favorably to any conciliatory gesture by Humphrey or any other American — unless the gesture is to abandon Taiwan. But Mao is old and certain to pass from the China scene soon. Once he is gone, will the .

We Americans tend to think that it is Peking's recklessness alone that is responsible for the present hostile relations \vith the U.S., but the trade embargo cited by Humphrey is one reason why the average Chinese might think the U.S. is playing "footsie" with Russia and implacably hostile toward China. After all, among China's great trading partners today are Japan, West Germany, Canada, Australia — all nations that do not recognize the Peking regime. Whereas the boycott against Cuba is regional, the United States stands virtually alone in an anti-Peking posture that forbids the sale even of food. Humphrey could lose as many votes as he gains by daring to suggest a policy change. But he has opened the China issue up as what it ought to be.
