Blytheville (Ark.) Courier Newi - Friday, Auguit It, MM- Pif» tin Has No Sworef PROBE Sukarno Rattles Scabbard By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent At a time when Indonesia Is reported seeking help on an urgent basis from the Americans, President Sukarno has flung another defiant "go to hell" at the United States. It can be a matter of critical importance to Americans to understand how and why Sukarno gets away with it. In tht long run, the future of vast and enormously rich Indonesia likely will be more important than Viet Nam to the United States and the West. Americans who urge rapid aid to Indonesia say it can be far less costly to defend that island nation against the designs of Chinese and world communism. Witnesses At Convention Members of the local congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses will be leaving Monday and Tuesday to attend the "God's Sons of Liberty" district convention in Mobile, Ala. At least 15,000 minister • del- gates from the south are expected to attend the Aug. 2428 convention, according to Her- jert L. Wight, presiding minister. Wight said principal speakers «4 the seminar will be N. H. Knorr, president of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, and Grant Suiter, secretary- troasurer of the Society. Westerners in close touch with the Indonesian situation gay it would be a mistake to take seriously the tirade delivered by Sukarno in his independence day speech Wednesday. They say it would be a mistake to permit Sukarno's fiery words to deflect or frighten away the sort of help which can place the country beyond the grasp of Red China. Aging and ailing, Sukarno seems to be making a last desperate stab at reasserting his leadership. His slogan with regard to Western "monopolies," he said, remains "go to hell." But the new regime, instead, probably will go to Washington, and soon, with an official bid for help. There is no more telling testimony to Sukarno's loss of power than the news from Moscow that the Soviet Communist party failed to mention his name in saluting Indonesia's independence day. * * * Whatever happens in Indonesia, the Soviet Union, as its major creditor, is likely to want in. Moscow is not unhappy with the downgrading of Sukarno, whose policies pushed the country steadily toward the violently pro-Chinese Indonesian Communist .party. The Soviet Union is not going to offend the new regime of a country which some day may again be up for grabs. The Soviets seem to read the Indonesian situation carefully and to conclude that, despite his posturing as "great leader," Sukarno is definitely out of pow- Daily : Weather U. 8.

Art Yesterday a few stations over Arkansas reported rain in excess of one inch with some small hail and 40-mile-per-hour winds being reported hi the central part af the state. However, generally, precipitation amounts were less than one-hai'f inch. This morning scattered sections of the state were bllanketed in early morning fog. A weak cold front continues to move slowly southeastward becoming more diffuse as: it moves. While the frontal action is still expected to cause 1 a few showers heavy activity is not indicated for today. With another weak cool front already appearing on the scene, no major change in the weather pattern is envisioned during the next five days. Prime agents in governing how hot we got yesterday, were cloudiness and showers. For example Texarkana, with: no rain recorded 95 degrees the hottest in the state. While Arkadelphia, slightly over 60 miles from there, recorded the lowest maximum of 83 degrees with .17 of an inch of rain. This morning minimum readings ranged from 64 at Calico Rock to 74. at Reiser.

Henry er, reduced to figurehead sta- us. Sukarno is permitted to retain the title of president and 'make speeches, even though he tends o embarrass and dismay those ndonesian leaders working be- lind scenes to mend the nation's relations with America and the West. Sources intimately familiar with what is going on say the new regime under its strong man, Lt. Gen. Suharto, is reclu- ant to belittle Sukarno openly lecause he still has a wide fol- owing among the nation's 1 105 million after years of veneration as a fattier-figure of the Indonesian revolution. * * * But, say these sources, Sukar- no has been told he has a choice: to go down in Indonesian history as a hero, or to be reviled. The new regime is re- jorted to have enough evidence linking him to leaders of last 'all's abortive Communist coup io disgrace him before the nation and put him permanently OBITUARY • John Shandor Funeral services were held this week at St. Mels Catholic Church in Cleveland, 0., for John C.

In the long ; run, Sukarno is unlikely- to tempt the new leaders too far. He must be fully aware he has lost the support of the impatient younger generation, which took the lead in the bloody nationwide crackdown on the Communists. Indonesia, in incredibly chaotic economic condition, lies athwart some of Kie world's most important waterways. Much of its natural riches still are untapped and could be the source of an economic revival. American businessmen who support prompt aid- to Indonesia estimate that help from the West in credits and other forms, to the extent of about half a billion dollars annually, could put Indonesia in a position where eventually it could generate its own recovery. They cite by contrast the $15-billion annual cost of the Viet Nam war, apart from the toll of American lives. Indonesia has been a bad risk under Sukarno. Today, however, Sukarno is given little chance to reverse the process which snatched his nation away from the grasp of the pro-Chinese Communists. Evidently the United States remains cautious about taking Indonesia off the bad-risk lisl and statements such as Sukar- no's this week do not tend to speed the process.

Willis referred to persons en gaging in such activities as 'yellow-bellied cowards." Things got more lively later, especially during a brief period in which the committee summoned Anton.
