A high French source at U.K. headquarters in New York told newsmen Sultan Mohammed Ben Moulay Arafa by Monday will name Si Bekkai, staunch supporter of former Sultan Mohammed Ben Youssef, to head a regency couiv cil for Morocco. Si Bekkai is the former pasha of Sefrou. Moulay Arafa, the source at the U.N. continued, will retire to the international zone of Tangier, leaving the council U> rule until France I and the Moroccans settle their two-year quarrel over the occupancy of the throne. The French exiled Ben Youssef to Madagascar in 1953 because of his nationalist sympathies, replacing him with Moulay Arafa. The action made the former Sultan's cause the chief rallying point for the nationalists. Under Faure's plan, Ben Youssef would be allowed to live in France until his future status is settled. Meanwhile, the regency council would form a government representing all Moroccan factions to negotiate for more home rule in the protectorate. Faure himself set Sept. 12 as the target for a settlement when he began negotiations with the nationalists last month .Subsequently a nationalist group in Casablanca, Morocco's biggest city, colled general strike for that date if Moulay Arafa was still on throne. Many in Morocco fear the strike, if it materializes, will touch off another blood bath similar to the uprising Aug. 20-21 In which 132 French and pro-French Moslems and more than 1,000 Moroccans were killed. Negotiators on all sides intensified their activities as the target date for the settlement approached. Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111.

"These cuts stem back to the basic fallacy of the doctrine of so-called 'massive retaliation. "The last thing in the world we want to see is massive retaliation by us or against us—in fact, if it ever comes to pass, it will probably be the last thing in the world we ever do see." Truman, who attempted once during his administration to cut the size of the Marine Corps, recalled the resultant furor while criticizing the present administration's attempt to do the same thing. He said: "The condition of our strength in the air is not the only cause for alarm. The Congress recently showed its concern when it voted— over administration opposition—to appropriate funds needed to avoid cuts in the Marine Corps. I hope very much that this money will be used for the purpose for which it was appropriated. "And if somebody wants to bring up the time I impounded some funds under somewhat similar circumstances, just remember what I told you in the beginning about learning some lessons the hard way."
