Adv U THANT Katanga Claims Victory ELISABETHVILLE, Katanga, the Congo (AP) — The Katanga radio today claimed Katangan troops had scored a great victory over invading forces of the central Congo government. It reiterated claims that all invaders have now been repulsed from this secessionist province. Congolese national troops abandoned a rail bridge and left arms, ammunition and wounded to be seized by Katangan troops, the broadcast said. Travelers returning from the frontier town of Kaniama, however, reported that the Congolese army had a walkover up to now and that the Katangans had shown great reluctance to fight. These reports tended to support the claims of Gen. Joseh Mobutu, the central government's army commander, that his forces had advanced more than 35 miles into Katanga from the north and had met little resistance in the drive to end the province's secession. Travelers said the only reason the Congo's army push was slow was because a railway bridge had been damaged on the border. LONDON (AP) - Princess Margaret gave birth to a son today and her husband said she was thrilled and delighted. First to see the baby—after the doctors and nurses—was the father, the Earl of Snowdown, the former society photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones.

His son—fifth in line to the British throne—was born Viscount Linley. The infant's weight was not announced immediately. An official announcement said "mother and son are doing well."

The news of the birth were relayed quickly to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Congratula tions began pouring in. Lord Evans, 58, one of the five medical men who attended the princess, broke the news to the father.. Before the baby's birth at 10:45 a.m. Tony sent Margaret an arm load of red roses. He repeatec the order after the birth. The news was flashed to the far corners of the world. It even went out to jet airliners in flight Four court physicians were in attendance at the birth: Sir John Peel, gynecologist to the queen and the princess; anesthetist Ver non Hall, Sir John Weir and Lord Evans.

Bargain Store Adv PRINCESS MARGARET Agree On Chrysler ** Contract DETROIT (AP) - Chrysler )orp. and the United Auto Workers Union reached agreement on new three-year labor contract Thursday night, averting a strike. The Chrysler pact brought peace between the UAW and all :he automakers, except Studebaker-Packard. Three-year contracts previously had been negotiated by General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co., and American Motors Corp. UAW President Waller P. Reuther said the Chrysler agreement, which came only 50 minutes be fore the company's 60,000 UAW represented employes were to strike at midnight in support of demands, was essentially the same as that reached at GM and Ford. The union estimated that the Ford and GM contracts were worth more than 12 cents hourly in take-home pay over each year They immediately added a minimum of five cents to gross pay raising that to an average of $2.85 hourly for the industry's production workers. This, plus company assumption of the full cost of hospital-medica insurance and other improvements in fringe benefits figured in the UAW estimate the contracts were worth more than 12 cents in take- home pay. CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) —A rhesus monkey with a radio transmitter and biomedical sen- ors beneath its skin is scheduled ride an Atlas missile 600 miles nto space next week. The 6-pound monkey is the first )f several animals slated to be ocketed aloft to determine whether implanted sensors can be useful to human astronauts. If perfected, the system could elim- nate uncomfortable and cumbersome wires required for external sensors such as those worn by Alan B. Shepard Jr. and Virgil I. Grissom on their space flights. The monkey will be in a special capsule packed in a cylinder acked to the side of the Atlas. The cylinder is intended to eject from the Atlas and follow a bal- istic course which will land it in the Atlantic 6,000 miles southeast of Cape Canaveral. During the 35-minute trip, the monkey will be subjected to crushing acceleration and deceleration forces, radiation, 15,000- mile-an-hour speed and fiery reentry heat. An attempt will be made to recover the cylinder anc its passenger. Implanted sensors might in crease an astronaut's walking range on the moon. With externa sensors requiring wires, a man would be able to travel only few feet from his spaceship. The internal instruments might enable him to roam several miles.

Islanders Settle In Britain SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP — The homesick islanders o Tristan da Cunha sailed into the 20th century world today to make a new home far away from theii deserted, volcano-ravaged island in the Atlantic. Perplexed and bewildered, th 62 refugees arrived on the line Stirling Castle. Some of the women cried Anxiety and concern showed the faces of the men. The young sters were bubbling with excite ment. They tarried their forlorn pos sessions, tied in cardboard case or sacks or blankets. They savet only a few things when the vo cano on Oct. 10 drove them from their isand home midway betwee South Africa and South Americ where they had lived an 18t century existence. "I am afeared for us all," sai Peter Repetto, 59, the island chief speaking in the curiously archai English of the Tristan people "Now our children must fac evil for the first time. They wi be frightened and bewildered an very homesick," he said.

Ravdin, past president of the American College of Surgeons, says it is now certain cancer will come under control just as diabetes has. An array of anticancer drugs may be the answer, Ravdin told reporters after presiding at the opening session of a conference of cancer specialists Thursday. And he also said in a speech to the conference that it is highly likely that "before another year is passed, we may well find that certain of the common human malignant lesions" may be caused by viruses. "We may have information on the control of such lesions by chemical agents," he said. That was one of the more hopeful notes sounded at the two-day conference. The main theme was "cautious hopefulness" and the public was told that no breakthrough is in sight in the fight against the disease. The conference, bringing together about 1,000 physicians and surgeons for a review of methods of treating cancer with chemicals, is sponsored by the Cancer Chemotherapy National Service Center, an agency of the Department of Welfare. Dr. Ravelin, University of Pennsylvania surgeon who was the only civilian on the teams of doctors that performed the ileitis operation on former President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956, said there had been heartening progress made in the past two years since the last conference. One development, he said, was assurance that women who develop choriocarcinoma — a rare but quick spreading cancer—dur ing pregnancy can in many case be cured. Another is that there has bee some success in stopping cancer' spread by a combination of sur gery and application of a chem cal at the time of operation an for three or four days after. Many of the experts emphasizec at the news conference that ther are many types of cancer an there is no reason to believe any he Ottawa Main as 25.36 feet. Street gauge ROBERT A.

Adv. Kansan Is "President" To Japanese Admirers YOKOSUKA, Japan (AP) - His name is George Robert Kennedy and that makes him as good as a "president," his Japanese friends claim. The American Navy officer and his family will receive a book of goodwill messages from Japanese friends lauding the Kennedys as "extraordinary ambassadors of good will." Lt. Kennedy, who was stationed at the U.S. fleet weather facility in Yokosuka until last July, and his family now reside in Greensburg, Kas. The autograph folder contains 25 feet of goodwill messages including one saying "to me, you are 'President' Kennedy, not because we Japanese are ignorant of who the President is, but because you, like the President, promote the best images of America." The book is composed of six- inch folding pages and contains 70 signatures by mayors, parliament deputies, professors and silk worm raisers, gathered by Mark Takeda, student of Niigata Prefecture on the Japan sea coast of thft main island of Honshu. The autograph folder will be sent to Lt. Kennedy by Harold Cope of Upper Sandusky, Ohio, principal of the Nile E. Kinnick Navy Dependent High School here at Takeda's request. Mysterious Sound Probed By Air Force Technicians one means will of them. ever control all SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) Six Air Force technicians sent by the White House tried today to learn the cause of the whir that the Binkowski family says has made their home nearly a madhouse for nine months. The men, from Griffiss Air Force Base, said they were using equipment worth at least $500,000 in their tests at the house in suburban Rotterdam. Eugene Binkowski, a truck driver, and his family had written to President Kennedy about the weird whirring sound they said had driven them from their home and almost out of their minds. Rotterdam Councilman Frank Kriss, a Democrat, suggested the letter. Afew oilier listeners say they have heard a noise, but local tech- nicians called previously could neither hear the sound or find any possible cause. The Air Force men, who began work Thursday, declined to say yet whether they could hear it. Binkowski, his wife and two sons, 15 and 6, had moved into a trailer near the house. The trailer soon began to hum, too, they said. Now they plan to try living in a prefabricated garage on the property.
