P«g« A-2-- INDEPENDENT ''··»· ··« h - «·»'· · »· "« r-LA.C. SAYSr Algerian Tragedy The tragedy of the present Algerian trouble is that it is Frenchmen opposing the government of France. They arc the French settlers who have long had their homes in Algeria. They have cultivated the ground, raised their children and ruled the North African country for generations. They are now faced with the probability they must be governed by Moslem rules and be placed in the same position as the British in India, most of whom have been driven from their colonized homes. * * * It was only 20 months ago when the French army in Algeria revolted against the weak French government. The army joined with the French settlers in demanding a strong leader to bring about order in the five-year rebellion against French rule. The result was a new government under De Gaulle who quickly brought order out of chaos--for a time. Then De Gaulle decided the only solution to the Algerian problem was a plebiscite whereby the people would decide (1) if Ihey wished to continue as a French colony, or (2) if they wanted a modified form of government wherein Algeria would be a part of France with greater freedom--such as Canada enjoys with Britain--or (3) that Algeria would be independent of France in every way. * * ft It is this self-determination policy of De Gaulle that brought about the insurrection of the French settlers. They see the probability that the plebiscite will mean they will be ruled by the natives and the danger their properties will be seized--as has occurred in India. They hope the French army would join with them in a last effort to hold Algeria as a French colony. It seems probable De Gaulle will win over the settlers. The army is remaining loyal to him. But out of the settlement will cnme a new bitterness among Frenchmen who feel the government has not protected the interest of settlers who have done much to develop the agriculture and enterprises of Algeria. One has but to read "The Leaf and the Flame" by Margaret Parton, a story of present day India, to understand the fears of the French colonists. * ft ft Mrs. Parton spent five years in India as a correspondent for a New York paper. Her husband was correspondent for a British paper. They tell of the tragedy of the British as India was given over to the all-Indian g o v e r n m e n t . They were molested and driven from the home they had enjoyed for generations. Their lives are in constant danger. Only a small number remain. It is this picture the French settlers have before them which has caused the present insurrection by Frenchmen against Frenchmen. There may be more bloodshed before the plebiscite is held. It may be the Moslems and other natives will decide they need the protection of France--and therefore will vote accordingly. But the hatreds that have been aroused by five years of rebellion by the natives may cause a vote for complete independence. If that occurs, the Algerian Moslems may turn to Nasser--or even the communists. It is a tragic example of the changes going on as colonization is being ended in many of the areas where European nations have so long ruled.--L.A.C. (L.A.C.'s column, rw (_. A.

Passage of such a tax cut would knock Bro\vn's 1960-61 budget of $2,477,721,574 a little out of kilter. The budget would leave a surplus of $1,426,917 to the general fund.

The policy conflicts with Gov. Brown's recommendations, which seek a penalty for holders of more than 160 acres, and drew sharp criticism from a six-member minority on the committee. The majority of the 20- membcr committee urges a single rate, varying only with distance from the s o u r c e , saying it "eliminates all sub- Month Y e a r j s i d y to irrigation and any $2.00 524.00 | and enhancement," 2.00 2 . "TY\ C on |y limitation on water deliveries should be full repayment of the costs," the majority report said. The report also called for sale of power at the prevailing market price. That jibes with Brown's policy. A committee minority said the policies are " inconsistent with the greatest public good for the people of the state of California." /· V»1 ·*·** -m f* o ylilplCS I don't see where we have any alternative," said Sen. James A. Cobcy (D-Merced), urging support of the bill. * li! * * CAMERON SAID the games should realize a $300,000 profit for the state. It could o as high as $tiOO,000 or $700,000, he said, but the emergency fund is needed to )ay bills in case attendance 'alls below expectations. Sen. Hugo Fisher (D-San 3iego), one of the nine who voted against the measure, questioned its constitutional iy, saying it appeared to be i gift of oublic funds. Legislative Counsel Ralph vleps offered a contrary opiri- on however. Sen. John J. Holmdahl (D- Oakland) urged a more thorough review of the bill, saying 'somebody surely got fooled along the way." "Can't this wait until Tuesday or the next day or even Thursday to explore the in- urance possibility?" he asked. Gov. Brown called the lawmakers into special session earlier in the day to consider WASHINGTON-- The Pubic Health Service Monday said a low-cost, auto exhaust device it tested would cut down on air pollution but is not a cure-all for smog. Basing its evaluation on a 20-automobile test, the PHS said the device would reduce lir pollution by a significant amount. Even if universally installed, however, it will not delay the day when even nore drastic steps against automobile-caused air pollution will be required, the re- jort said. Development of the device was announced Nov. 30 by he Automobile Manufacturers' Assn. THE DEVICE was tested iy the PHS's division of en- Sneering services. Its 'report did not take issue with auto ndustry estimates the device would remove an average of 33 to 40 per cent of the total lydrocarbons spewed out by an engine. Despite its cautious appro- Slecps al Phone BONN (DPI) -- A waiting ine outside a telephone booth »rew longer and longer until someone finally called police.

Nor can the device destroy the olefins created in combus- .ions. Olefins are one of the ngredients in smog, and comprise about 45 per cent of the lydrocarbons in the exhaust stream. The device can destroy only those olefins present in the raw gasoline that : lows into it, and the total of these is small. Another ingredient the device will not destroy is carbon monoxide, the PHS said. HUNTINGTON HOTEL 10 on c rr*CAW ni vrt I.ZYU t. Out AN DLVIs.
