Only two of he injured required hospitalize;ion, however. In the litter after the battle were the furry remains of baby chicks. Flemings haddtrampled the chicks as an insult to the Walloons, whose symbol is the rooster: At the outset of Belgian independence, French was the official language, even for judges, army officers, officials and universities in Flemish-speaking areas. But about 30 years ago, the Flemings, who make up about 60 per cent of the population, won almost complete equality. They still complain, however, th'at top jobs in the armed force s ami diplomatic service go to the French-speaking Walloons and that French still dominates many areas of Belgian life.

Pentagon spokesman said the defense secretary discussed the Berlin situation in a closed- door session with the House Armed Services Committee, oJ which Van Zandt is a member. While declining to say sipecifi cally what McNamara told the committee, the spokesman said McNamara stressed the serious ness of the situation. The spokesman indicated tha McNamara did not go beyom what he has said in public re 'cently—"that the crisis we fac today in connection with-•Berlin I believe to be the most seriou that we have faced since the en< of the Korean War." The Defense Department had n comment on Van Zandt's remark about Cuba. The congressman ex pressed belief that President Ken nedy is about to impose a block ade on that country.

(AP)—A third candidate has entered the race for the Congressional seat in the newly formed 1st District of western Kansas. Walter E. Harris, 47-year-old unemployed cat) driver, announced Saturday he is entering the race as a write-in candidate because he is dissatisfied with Reps. J. Floyding Breeding, a Democrat, and Robert Dole, Republican, both of whom are seeking the post. Harris said several friends had encouraged him to run. He said he had received no campaign funds but would tour the district between now and Nov. 6. Kennedy, Rusk and other West- rn leaders believe that Khrush- hev is planning some new action which may precipitate a fresti erlin crisis before the end of the ear. American officials see a 0-50 chance thai before taking ny decisive step, however, the oviet leader may come to the J.N. General Assembly meeting n New York and also confer with ennedy in the hope of winning Western concessions on Berlin. If the Russians do launch an in- xmsified campaign against the Western position in Berlin, the point of attack may well be the surface and air lifeline across last Germany linking the city with West Germany. The U.S. pol- cy decision on civilian right of access, therefore, is considered of vital importance, for it implies •hat this country and its allies have decided they will not tolerate Communist blockade measures. Western diplomats say it is expected that the East Germans will shortly institute some regulation requiring regular diplomatic visas for civilians crossing East German territory to the Western sector of Berlin. This could b e construed as a bid for a greater degree of Western recognition of East German authorit, over the supply line. The United States, Britain and France maintain their position in Berlin and their access to the city as a right of occupation resulting from World War II. West Berlin Mayor Willy Brandt reiterated Sunday Western determination to protect his city against Soviet pressures. "If the Soviets want their crisis they can have it," he said in a stern radio address. Meanwhile, in a television interview in the United States (ABC- Issues and Answers), McGeorge Bundy, a presidential assistant who specializes in nation.' security affairs, endorsed .a proposal for a permanent deputy foreign ministers conference on Berlin and German issues. At the same time, Bundy approved a proposal by Brandt for a referendum to put West Berliners on record in favor of keeping Allied troops in the city, calling it "a very constructive step."
