Instead of blaming Hol- .and for the present action, I think :he world in the future will thank Holland." The ambassador said the basic fight in Indonesia is over the question of returning economic stability. "Throughout the world whenever first steps are taken toward stability.

Instead, Mouw went on, "President Soekarno and other Indonesian republican leaders had be- ome tools ','qf the Communists' and wore tryi.'ngg to perpetuate economic unrest.

Communist radio broadcast of a list of "war criminals" to be punished by a "peoples court" sent them glimmering. Heading the list were Chiang Kai-shek, Madame Chiang, Premier Sun Fo and most of the nation's top military and political leaders.

The charges were contained in a lengthy report to the U. N. security council over the signature of Ralph J. Bunche, acting U. N. mediator in Palestine. The report, slated for discussion >y the council today, supported Egyptians complaints that Israeli forces reopened hostilities in .violation of the council's truce order. Bunche declared "I have no knowledge of any incidents which could be claimed as a provocation, for the fighting in the Ncgev.' ' The council will hold a private meeting at 3 p. m.

"See no insurmountable obstacles to completion of the mission," Kane radioed naval chiefs. But this confidence did not mean the officers felt they had an easy- job.

ARBOGAST Washington, Dec. 27 —(/Pi—-A report criticizing waste and dupli cation in government medical services brought a warning today from Capitol Hill against eco- nomices at the expense of veterans. Circumstances indicated that Welles left his estate at nearby Oxon Hill, Md., in the early hours of Sunday. A son. Arnold Welles, said the family believes he suffered a heart attack while put waiting. He was stricken with a heart ailment 18 years ago and has been under treatment for it since then. Friends also reported that Welles has been deeply upset by the death in New York December 20 of Laurence Duggan, a close personal friend. Duggan, a protege of Welles in the state department, was killed when he fell or jumped from his 10th office window. After Duggan's death it was disclosed that his name had ben linked, with the current investigation of Communist spy activity in the state department' ten years ago. Welles thereupon issued a statement in which he called Dug gan an absolutely loyal public servant. Former Secretary of State Cordell Hull Attorney General Clark, among others, also vouched for' Duggan's loyally.
