Heavily armed troop columns led by tanKs moved toward French outposts whose little gar-riions had held out against rebel attack. War planes blasted rebel strongholds in the middle Atlas mountains. First reports said that rebel cas ualties were heavy. Determined to stamp out the latest rebel threat, De La Tour cabled Paris for reinforcements. He was promised five battalions Immediately, two of them to be sent from neighboring Algeria. Began Saturday Violence started Saturday night with simultaneous guerrilla attacks against French posts along the frontier opposite Spanish Morocco.

Snarled, Struck Nancy was picnicking with her family in the Catskills when a Fox wandered into the area from a nearby game farm. When she tried to pet the animal, It snarled and truck with claw and fang. The wound did not appear nerious so Nancy's parents departed with no more than passing mention of the incident to a park attendant. However, Rola n d Undemann. iroprietor of the game farm, led posse in tracking down and 'tilling the errant fox. An exami nation of the carcass by the state health department laboratory disclosed the fox was dangerously rabid.

Indonesia claims the island as part of its territory. The Netherlands maintains It 1 a Dutch pos session. The Netherlands has been fighting bitterly against putting the issue on the agenda.
