Diehard rebels stiffened against government efforts to crush the last remnants of the leftist' insurgency, and reports reaching here told of fierce fighting' in and around Stanleyville. "There is one mile around the post office in the center of Stanleyville that is safe," Col. Jeremiah Puren, a white mercenary, reported from the former capital of the rebel empire. "The rest is in big trouble." . ^ An attempt by Congolese Army troops and white mercenaries to cross the Congo River at Stanleyville was said to have been repulsed by rebel mortar and machinegun fire. Rebellion Still On The rebellion appeared to be far from over. Some of the rebel-held hostages, including the five Americans, were believed captives in the eastern Congo towns of Bunia and Wamba. The toll of 'slaughtered foreigners and anti-rebel Congolese was staggering. Some informed estimates put it at 4,000 in the past three mojiths alone. A total of 55 whites, including three Americans, were massacred this week in Stanleyville and Paulis before a U.S.-Belgian airborne rescue mission could reach them. 'More than 1,200 hostages were rescued in the two spectacular airlifts. The American-Belgian airlift stirred up' controversy around the world. These were some of the repercusgions: —The Vatican City newspaper Osservatore Romano said reports of the hostage slaughter "have deeply impressed civilized consciences because of a violation of common rules . of humanity." Rescue Almost Complete ' —B e 1 g i a n Foreign Minister Paul-Henri Spaak said in Brussels that the rescue operation is virtually complete and that all paratroopers will be returned to Belgium by next Wednesday at the latest.

Holiday Toll On Highways Passes 200 By United Press International The* accidental death toll moved past 200" today on the third day of the long Thanksgiving weekend. Most of the deaths were the result of car accidents. The worst ;was a two-vehicle accident near Olanta, S. C. that killed, eight persons, including six members of one family. No one lived through the accident. The deaths of 13 and possibly 19 crewmen in the collision off the New Jersey coast of the Israeli luxury liner Shalom and the Norwegian tanker Dagali were not included in the toll.' The National Safety Council was not keeping a count for the 102-hour holiday period between 6 p.m. Wednesday and Sunday :, but it said 662 persons traffic accidents during a similar period last year. The United Press International count at.6:30 a.m. (EST) showed 175 persons" had died in traffic accidents.

(UPI/ —A strike against the Tribune- Star Publishing Co., now in its fifth week, remained deadlocked today with no indication that a settlement was in sight. About 300 members of four unions have been on strike in a contract dispute against the city's two newspapers, the morning Terre Haute Star and the afternoon Terre Haute Tribune, since Oct 22. Several meetings have been held, with federal mediators sitting in, but no progress was reported. •' ' •"• i: •'" ' Earlier this week, a union spokesman said the'strike!'may not be settled until next March. 1 Company officials said no. new meetings were scheduled.''

Important Steel Talks To Open Next Wednesday In Pittsburgh By RAY FLECKENSTEIN United Press International PITTSBURGH (UPI) —Wages . . .cost of living. . .pensions . . grievance procedures These will be much-heard words come next Wednesday when the United Steelworkers' (USW), Wage Policy Committee begins a two-day meeting to set guidelines for expected contract talks with the basic steel industry early next year The struggle for power between incumbent USW 'President David J. McDonald and Secretary-Treasurer I. W. Abel for the union's top post in next February's election will introduce another word to . next week's proceedings ^politics. Somehow it encompasses all the others. The cries of dissatisfaction with the present contract are many; most include a denunciation of McDonald. 'Few are heard i an, defense of the silver-,- U^jred 'USW chief. ' f Donald C. Rarick, a'McKees. poet, 'Pa-i steelworker whoj made a ... surprisingly strong! showing against McDonald in IL 1957 abid for :jth»,-. presidency^ said: " Good Contract' A Mutt: • "You can say bye-bye 'Davy, if thii contract Isn't the keit ever negotiated by a labor leader." Where does the dissatisfaction lie? Chiefly in the following areas: Wages: the rank-and-file workers have had no hourly boost since Dec. 1, 1960, when they received 9.4 cents an hour won in the 1959 settlement of a 116-day strike. The Wage Policy Committee (WPC) is expected to press for. a 15-cent across the 1 board hike. . This would come near the figure ' won by the United Auto Workers in their recent three- year contract with the automobile industry. The UAW settlement, which included some hefty fringe benefits, ran above the non-inflationary guidelines set up by the President's Council of Economic Advisers. Cost of living: one union source said "feeling on this issue is unusually strong despite the lack of publicity it has received." The USW negotiators agreed to freeze an 18V4-cent- an-hour cost of living allowance in the. 1959 pact. ..- Opponents counter that'this move is now costing each steelworker 18V4 cents ah hour. They want the freeze thawed and want the current 18 W-cents, made a permanent pari of the nearly wage. Pensions Big. Issue Pensions: increased pensions and hospitalization programs for pensioners are not solely the concern of the older workers,' as one might suspect. The younger millworkers realize that if pensions were made more attractive and the retirement age lowered, there would be more job security for them. Grievance procedures: "Settlement of union grievances is done with about the same speed that the states are carrying out the Supreme Court's 1954 school desegregation order," one union leader said. This certainly is exaggeraged but it is a fact that two years is not an uncommon wait before grievances are resolved. Charges are heard that McDonald personally ignored these local grievances, and often dispatched Abel to smooth over the differences. One union leader said flatly that it is these visits by Able that will unseat McDonald in next February's election. The WPC meeting next week predictably will Inform the steel companies that the USW wishes reopening'talks after the first of the year on a new labor contract; A May-l'strlk'e is possible if ho agreement i« : reached; Accident Caused By Faulty Brakes Douglas L. Booth, 20, 112V4 S. Main St., ran out of brakes, his car ran out of room and ran into three other automobiles at the corner of North and Columbia Streets yesterday afternoon. Booth was driving north on Columbia when he tried to stop at North Street. Booth's car struck one being driven by Wililam R. Carter, 23, 116 Kentucky Ave., and a parked car owned by Lela Coppock, * 226 Kentucky Ave. The impact' of the collision forced the three vehicles into a -parked truck owned by Bud Ripberger, 134 E. Jefferson St. Estimated damage to Booth's vehicle was $400 while loss to the Carter auto was $200. Damage to the Coppock car was approximately $175, whiles Ripberger's truck sustained only minor damage. SPEEDER NABBED Police arrested David C'Mal- ley, 17, RR 2, for speeding yes terday. He was traveling 42 miles per hour in a 30 miles per hour zone on E. Jefferson St. He is slated to appear in court Dec. 4.

HELLER United Press International NEW YORK (UPI;—The mystery of how the Israeli liner Shalom and the Norwegian tanker Stolt Dagali, both equipped with radar, could have collided will be explored by a bi-nation admiralty court, it was learned today. The pride of the Israeli merchant fleet knifed through the Stolt Dagali in darkness and fog early Thursday off the New Jersey coast, sending the tanker's aft Section to the bottom. The 300-foot bow section was taken in tow by a tug for eventual salvage. . Israeli and Norwegian officials were .expected to confer shortly to set up an investiga­ tory court to determine responsibility for the tragedy which claimed 19 • lives aboard the Slolt Dagali. Thirteen ' bodies are accounted for and the Coast Guard called off an unsuccessful search of the Atlantic for six missing men at midmorning.

The collision took place in international waters 25 miles southeast of Asbury Park. N.J., so that the United States has no jurisdiction in the case. Israel took the initiative Thursday in inviting the Norwegian government to cooperate in establishing an admiralty court to hear testimony on tho navigating errors—human or mechanical—which put the ships on collision course. The hearing probably will be in New York, also sceno o! the; pre-trial hearings which led to an out-of-court settlement of damages in the Andrea Doria- Stockholm collision. Gave Incorrect Position One of the questions which will undoubtedly arise at the hearing is why the Shalom radio gave an incorrect position for the liner in its SOS. The Coast Guard said the longitude was almost correct but the latitude given would have plcaed the Shalom 15 miles north of its actual position on imnact. A Coast Guard spokesman said the Stolt Dagali gave the correct position in its distress messages. Anothsr crucial question is why radar—the most uo-tn-date in the world in the, case of tho nine-month-old Shalom — did not prevent collision. It is a well-known fact, underscored by testimony at previous maritime disaster hearings, that radar cannot insure against accidents at sea i!nle?<; navigators • plot the position nf images seon on their soroons. Coast Guard experts said many navigators are lazv about making these computations and uso radar only as a visual aid. The accident ended a 10 ! 2 day Thanksgiving cruise to the Caribbean for those aboard the Shalom within four hours after it began. But most of the passengers were th?nkful to walk off the ship safe and soi'nd when it returned here Thursday afternoon. An injured crew woman. Mrs. Marge Postalico' of Haifa. Israel, was reported in good condition at a New Jersey* hosnital whore she was ireatod for injuries caused bv the slamming of a door at the time of impact. The stern half of the 12,723- ten tanker sank only minutes after the impact. The bow end, which had been a precarious haven for Capt. Kristian Bon- diksen and 9 of his crew until they were rescued, was still afloat today. A tug was standing by tho bow. to tow it to port if possible. Somewhere not far off tho 95- foot Coast Guard cutter "Capo Strait" prowled in the area using its hu.« spotlights in an attempt, to find any signs of the missing nion. Bendiksen of tho tanker was on the bridgo at 2:23 a.m. EST when the collision happened. "It all happened so fast," he I said. "The ship was cut like a Knife. The stern end just disappeared." Some of the 21 men caught on the severed stern end of the tanker were washed into the sea, • others dived into the water and one group managed to lower a life boat. Capt. Abner Freudenburg, skipper of the Shalom, said his crew immediately put lifeboats into the water to search for survivors.
