He said the Soviet Union is r'eatK' to act to halt the aggression" there 'if those slates which are carrying on direct aggressions against The Congo do not stop their criminal measures." This was disclosed in n message from The Congo's President Joseph Kasavubu and Premier Patrice Lumumba. The Soviet news agency Tass quoted the. Congo leaders as messaging Khru- schrhev Thursday 'We will be compelled to ask for intervention by the Soviet Union if the Western camp does not desist from aggression." In his message Khrushchev spoke of the U.N. resolution arranging for n U.N. force to go to The Congo. "Useful Thing" "The Security Council did a useful thing in adopting a resolution calling for the withdrawn! of the Belgian troops from The Congo. "If the aggression continues in spite of this decision, the Soviet government declares that the neccesity would arise for both the United Nations and those peace- loving stales which sympathize with The Congo to take more effective measures,' the message said.

The story said he already has booked airplane passage. There was no confirmation of the dispatch, which came from the news r.gency's correspondent in Posadas, an Argentine city across the border from Paraguay. It is a center for Paraguayan rebels and a hotbed of rumors. The Argentine National Maritime Authority confirmed reports from Posadas that a boatload of armed civilians had crossed the Parana River from Argentina to Paraguay, landing at Ordonez. The Tellpress dispatch said Slroessncr is yielding over as the result of a reorganization of his Coloradr party. The army will take over the government to avoid violence and give Stroessner a chance to get out, the report said. The army has long been a principal supporter of Stroessner, South America's last dictator. The military has easily qfiishetl. a number of recent rebel invasions from Argentina, but there has been considerable evidence of dissatisfaction with Stroessner's rule, even from within his own party. President Joseph Kasavubu and Premier Patrice Lumumba .faced a renewed threat from the rich province of Katanga, whose provincial assembly Thursday night approved secession from the central government recognition of and "all demanded free-world countries" as an independent territory.
