Tunisia, March 28 ^ > — The French persuaded the Bey of Tunis today to name a new premier for this restive protectorate. This paves Ihe way, snid the French, for restoring order and giving Tunisia eventual self-rule. Salah-Kddine Den Mohammed Raccoucho, GO, n former premier and friendly to the French, was mimed premier to succeed Mohammed Chcnik. who was arrest- ocF by the French Wednesday. Tho new premier is a bit; landowner and a moderate In politics. This dramatic turn of events came after an hour-long conference between the Bey, tho nominal ruler of Tunisia, the French Resident-General, Joan de Haute- clocque, the real authority. Two representatives of French President Auriol accompanied de Hautoi-loque to the Bey's palace. De lltiutcclocquo said after the meeting negotiations would be reopened between the French and Tuinisans to introduce government reforms. Tho exact nature o£ tho reforms was not disclosed, but were said to embrace a step-by- stop plan to give Tunisia's 3',L> million Arabs their own government. The text of the French plan will be submitted to a Franco- Tunisian commission on April 24. De Hauteclocque accused the Neo-Dostour (Nationalist) party bended by Habib Bourgiba, now under arrest, of having collaborated with the Communists in the wave of terror that swept Tunisia in the past three months, causing nearly 100 deaths. He said the Nationalists wanted eventually to establish a republic and oust the 71-year-old Bey, SicJl Mohammed Al-Amin. Do Hauteclocque had charged them with fostering Nationalist riots ami demonstrations — demanding more self-rule for Tunisia which since mid-January have resulted in almost 100 deaths ami j numerous acts of sabotage. India will have to import about f>.000.000 tons of food grains this year, the Bank of India estimates, for at the end o/ 1951 the rationed population was greater than at the end of 1950. Harry E.
