BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEW1 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27,1965 In Unrrt d Nations: Arab-Asian Bloc Supports Independence for Algeria By TOM HOGE UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) — Leaders -of the Arab-Asian bloc mobilized forces for a last-ditch effort today to bring Algerian claims for independence from France before the U. N. General Assembly. Representatives of the 14 nations j jponsoring the demand for debate | on the issue requested the floor for the afternoon session at which the Assembly was to decide whether to .take up the explosive question. At an earlier private strategj meeting Arab leaders reportedly called for a united front to try to upset the 15-nation Steering Committee's recommendation that the ttem be kept off the agenda. Domestic Issue The Steering Committee actoc lifter the United States threw it? support behind the French contention that Algeria's future is a domestic issue. Chief U.S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. said Algerian nationalists were trying to bring about basic changes in the French republic. He pointed out that unlike the French protectorates of Morocco and Tunisia, Algeria ie administratively a part of France. Blamed France Iraq and several other Asian states took sharp issue with the TJ.S.-French stand. They accused France of responsibility for the current strife in Algeria, charging she failed to heed the natives' hopes and aspirations. . Observers believed it doubtful the anti-French group could muster enough votes to upset the Steering Committee's ruling. But most agreed that France faced a tough fight before the 60-nation Assembly. The five-nation Soviet bloc opposes France's stand.

MONORAIL BEING INTRODUCED TO U.S.-Jerrie Dell Davis, 9, uses a bottle of milk to "launch" a model of a monorail car planned for Houston, Tex. Designed for mass transportation, the car will run suspended from a single rail 20 feet above the ground, carrying 51 passengers at an average speed of 60 m.p.h. Track will be supported by a system of slender towers. An 830- foot test line, first such line in the United States, is being built in Houston by Monorail, Inc., to demonstrate the idea, which is supposed to cope successfully with heavy metropolitan traffic. Wuppertal, Germany, has had a monorail system in operation for over 50 years. It has been used there by 850 million persons without a single fatality, according to Monorail. The company estimates cost of the transportation system will be $500,000 a mile, which compares with the £our to six-million-dollar cost for each 'mile of a .freeway highway.

Hagerty, Eisenhower's press secretary, said Vice -President Nixon and Eisenhower aides lad surveyed the situation and concluded that "there is nothing in :he immediate future that requires ;he President's signature, or any- iiing that amounts to delegation of powers." The entire situation undoubtedly will come up lor new study in Washington later in the week at meetings of the President's Cabinet and the National Security Council, the government's top policymaking unit on. security matters. Nixon will preside at both sessions. Word that the meetings have ieen called was kept from the j President in line with an already! 'irm policy of trying to spare himj as much concern as possible regarding the problems his illness has created. i Recommends Light Work On his arrival back in Boston last night, Dr. White said: "The President will be much better off to take up some of his duties than to worry over neglecting them while he recovers." The physician indicated, however, that he was talking about the period after the first two or three critical weeks, "After that." White said, "I would think ? that short conference sessions, perhaps studying a few papers, would not impede his progress. 1 ' He said he had insisted that yesterday morning's medical bulletin report that Eisenhower had ' 'ft good bowel movement." He told newsmen, "The country will be pleased about that" because "it is a bowel-minded country." A reporter asked White whether Eisenhower could be flown back to Washington in Perhaps three weeks if recovery progressed nor-j mally, ! "Not to Washington," White re- plied, but perhaps to his farm home at Gettysburg, Pa. Month's Rest At the same time White indicated he favored at least, a month of hospital rest for the President. That probably means the chiet executive will remain in Denver until at least the third week of October, As for Eisenhower's morale, White termed it "wonderful' 1 and added that "he is a wonderful patient." Until yesterday no one had been permitted in Eisenhower's eighth- floor hospital room except doctors, nurses, Mrs. Eisenhower and his son John, an Army major who flew here from Washington Sunday. Then the restrictions were eased a bit and the President had two other visitors, both of whom saw him only very briefly. One was Hagerty. for whom he had a cheery "Hello. Jim."
