It N. Troops Be Sent To Will Congo By MILTON BESSER UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) --Th« U.N. Security Council early today approved Secretary General Dag Hammarakjold's plan to speed a stopgap U.N. military force drawn mostly from African nations to the new republic of The Congo in an effort to keep it from ollapsing into anarchy. Immediately after the council acted, the secretary general assured that first steps to put the force together would be taken 'in a couplp of hours." Initial elements of the force were expected to be in the central African Country before the end of the week. Approval of U.N. intervention came at an emergency G'^-bour session of the council that did not adjourn until 2:24 a.m. Urgent Requests Hammarskjold colled the meeting after receiving urgent requests from The Congo government for U.N. aid. For a time it appeared t h a t his plea for quick action would be stymied by a dispute over the future of Belgian troops that intervened in TW Congo after the na- tive army had mutinied ag«!nst its Belgian officers and gone on a rampage of violence and pillage. But the council rejected Soviet demands that it condemn Belgium as an armed aggressor in The Congo, seek immediate withdrawal of the troops, and stipulate that the U.N. military force be restricted to troops from African countries. Then, by a vole of 8-0 with 3 abstentions, (he council approved a Tunisian resolution calling for withdrawal of the Belgian troops without setting any definite date and authorizing Hammarskjold to take the necessary steps lor dispatch of the U.N. force. Three Abstain Britain. France and Nationalist China abstained, opposing the direct call for withdrawal of the Belgian troops as an implied censure they said was not warranted. Voting for the resolution were Waller Loridan declared his country would withdraw its troops when the' U.N. force is on the ipot and able to restore security to The Congo. LEOPOLDVILLE, The Congo (AP)--Dr. Ralph Bunche said today the f i r s t ' of the United Nations troops being sent to help restore order in this troubled republic are expected here within 48 hours. Bunche said he expects that by early next week at least four battalions of U.N. troops' will have reached The Congo. That could mean 2,400 or more soldiers. * .* * Congo Breaks Diplomatic Ties Wiih Belgium BRUSSELS (AP) - The Congolese government has broken off: diplomatic relations with Bel-' MISSISSIPPI -- Partly clMKf* wltfx ical' r»d lJHHvJtt|Vo*«ri iti t clirrvoj-i and !on:o.V OfxJ rrain'y In isulh oorllofi Friday, rvjl to hot nci *icllor.» in i*it a'l- tinwyii. loweii roi'ght 68-73, hV«' MrJof 94-94.
