S. demand came Monday in a severely worded protest note handed to the Soviet Foreign Ministry in Moscow. The Reds claim they shot down: the plane after it violated Soviet j territory- U. S. officials say the; craft was over international wa-i lers. | ' State Department press officer! Lincoln White, in making the U.S. note public, said the United Nations charter provides for a joint investigation i n t o the facts in such cases. Moscow Ignored Offer The note pointed rxi f tha* the United States had offered to join with the Soviet Union in an vestigation but t h a t Moscow has ignored the offer. Instead, the Soviet Union is taking the case to the U. N. Security Council. The United Stales welcomes the chance at [tie Security Council meeting, the note sakl, "to make clear to world opinion the illegality and recklessness of Soviet behavior with regard to the downing of the RB17 aircraft with the known loss of life of at least one member of its crew and the arbitrary detention of two U. S. Air Force officers." The note accompanied a Soviel promise to r e t u r n the body of the pilot, Capl. William A. Palm, ai-.d demanded that a U. S. Embassy representative in Moscow IK.' allowed to see w i t h o u t delay the two survivors, Lts. John R. Mc- Konc and F. B. Olmstead. Three other crewmen are still t: accounted for.

Mississippi Savings and Loan Congo bases were guaranteed to them by treaty with the Congo government. Lumumba insists, however, the treaty became a dead letter when Belgian soldiers were flown into the Congo after the outbreak of the Congo army mutiny earlier this month. Leopoldville is one of 20 urban centers taken over by Belgian forces after the Congo won independence June 30. Even the Leopoldville Airport, an escape hatch for many of the 25,000 whites who have fled the Congo, will be taken over by the U. N. from its Belgian guards. Had Long Meeting A communique on these arrangements was issued by Bunche after he had a long meeting with Maj. Gen. Carl von Horn, commander of U. N. forces in the Congo, and the Belgian ambassador and Belgian army chief ol staff. Bunche's announcement, broad cast to the Congolese people promised the U. N. forces wil protect all the people, "European as well as African." The withdrawal of Belgian sol diers from Congolese territory was called for in the U. N.. resolution providing /or military intervention. The Soviet Union, charging that the Congo is the target of imperialist aggression, has threatened counter measures if the Belgian units were not withdrawn.
