It was the first federal advance in the Nigeria-Biafra civil war announced since the fall of Ok-igwe seven weeks ago. The reported capture of Adazi and Agulu in the northwest sector of the breakaway Eastern Region was welcome news to Nigerian officials. They have been embarrassed by their slow progress in the past two months after increased supplies of arms from Gabon and the Ivory Coast reached rebel hands. Reports in Lagos said 1st Division soldiers were marching on Nnewi, psychologically important as the home town of the Biafran leader, Lt. Col. C. Odumegwu Ojukwu. Third Division troops were said to be in artillery range of the rebel airstrip at Ulu. The strip is the major port of entry for arms and Red Cross relief flights breaking the Nigerian blockade. 10 & 8 Candidates Aid Cancer Crusade A total of $45.05 was collected by the candidates for initiation into the voitures of the 40 & 8 when they were at the Palm Coast Plaza Saturday.

Europeans Question Confidence In Franc Sensational Reductions! Our Reg. 3.77 BIG 8 LITTLE GIRLS QUILT ROBES LONDON (AP) - Europe's money men were skeptical Sunday night that President Charles de Gaulle's economic austerity measures would provide a long-term basis for renewed confidence in the franc. Some said eventual devaluation of the French currency was still in the cards. European financial capitals reacted cautiously to the package of tax adjustments, exchange controls and budget cuts that de Gaulle handed F ranee iastead of the immediate devaluation that had been widely expected. Experts were waiting to see how the franc fared when fureign exchange markets reopened Monday and to learn more de-ails of de Gaulle's plans. But financial specialists in Britain, where the pound was devalued under pressure just a year ago, said de Gaulle was only buying time for the French economy. One commented. "We did just the same thing. It didn't work." "De Gaulle has not learned the hard lesson that we did," said the Daily Mail. "You do not devalue, vou are devalued." The Financial Times said it was "hard to believe that Gen. de Gaulle can hope or SAVE TO 20! WARM, KITTEN-SOFT . . . rayonacetate robes will delight any little lady! Nylon tricot quilting.

In Zurich, one banker said he doubted that French exchange controls would in the long run help to ease the tensions in the international currency markets. The consensus was that only revaluation of the Deutsche mark already ruled out by the Germans would bring stability. West German government spokesmen declined comment on the measures announced by de Gaulle until details were available. In Frankfurt, Federal Bank Governor Karl Blessing said de Gaulle was asking Frenchmen to work harder but added, "the president didn't really say anything concrete." Reaction in Italy was mixed. A treasury spokesman said de Gaulle's program is "technically unobjectionable." An Italian stock exchange source said, "I wonder if devaluation is only postponed. Once public opinion has lost its confidence in something it is very hard to reverse the trend." In contrast, the Dutch Finance Ministry called de Gaulle's plan "powerful and courageous." A ministry spokesman said it appears a good solution from an international point of view in some ways even better than devaluation. Common Market diplomats in Brussels called de Gaulle's radio address to the French people restrained. But some expressed concern over possible effects on trade within the European six. There was talk in Britain of a need for an international conference to revise the world's monetary system. Some British officials speculated that de Gaulle rejected devaluation because he expects such a conference after Richard M. Nixon takes office as the U.S. president. De Gaulle, the officials said, would want to be able to negotiate from strength. Terrific Bargain!
