COURIER NEWS MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 27,1964 To Aid Underdeveloped Countries WASHINGTON (AP) — The World Bank was confronted today with a swelling appeal from underdeveloped countries for new sources of money to speed their industrial expansion. Creation of a proposed ''international finance corporation/' as a World Bank subsidiary, was being pushed by more than 30 of the 57 nations represented at the joint annual meeting of the bank and the International Monetary Fund. Languid Lyttelton's Crew Goes For 'Onions,'a la New Orleans Several delegations were expected to speak up on the subject at today's meeting of the bank's Board of Governors which will take up the annual report of President Eugene R. Black. Black's report, filed Saturday, Indicated progress has stalled on .organization of the proposed corporation which, unlike the bank, would lend to and invest in private enterprises in less-developed countries without obtaining from the governments , concerned any guarantees of' repayment. Black reported that the countries on which the corporation would have to depend for its funds—the United States would be foremost — "are not, at the present time prepared to commit themselves to subscribe the capital." Some delegates did not wait until the formal discussion to present their pleas. At Friday's opening meeting,, spokesmen for Uruguay, Pakistan, and other countries declared the flow of foreign investment capital inadequate and called for more vigorous efforts to create the loan-and-investment cor- portion, Chaudhri Mohamed Ali, finance minister of Pakistan, declared that •economic progress of European and other industrial nations in recent years "has not been matched in the underdeveloped countries. The governor of the bank for Uruguay, Nilo R. Berchesi, joined in the appeal,.declaring that plans for the corporation 'must not be abandoned" despite the difficulties of obtaining capital. Meantime the International Monetary Fund took another step toward expulsion of its only member from ^behind the Iron- Curtain, Czechoslovakia. .The fund's .committee on finances and 'organization, it was 'learned, has endorsed "overwhelmingly" a recommendation of the executive directors that Czechoslovakia be forced to withdraw oh • Dec. 31 unless by that date it has furnished data on trade, international payments and economic conditions : which, like all other members, it is pledged to furnish. The fund's board of governors is expected to accept the committee recommendation on Wednesday, the final day of the conference. The World Bank already has suspended Czechoslovakia from membership for failure to pay the capital subscriptions.required. This ouster becomes final Dec. 31 unless 'the Czechs pay up.

By EDDY GILMORE LONDON GW—Humphrey Lyttelton, a tall, young man with, a long trumpet, blew a note that hit the ceiling and bounced. Six hundred young Britons—about equally divided between males and females—shouted in one voice, "Onions" The drummer, the banjo player and the pianist commenced a steady beat in the background. The trumpet, a clarinet and an alto saxophone took up the melody, or what there is of a melody to "Onions." Two hundred young dancers shuffled onto the wooden floor and started jiving. The joint jumped. Lyttelton leaned against the bar of the London Jazz Club, a languid young man who plays trumpet in the traditional Dixieland style. Now he was resting. "We let in all we can,'* he explained, "but I'm afraid we had. to turn several hundred away tonight. You see, this was members night. There just isn't room for everyone who wants to get in." This Dixieland music is played bj- a group of young Britons three ! times a week. Lyttelton's group is the band for two of the weekly sessions. Other groups alternate on the third. No bop is played by Lyttelton, or. any other group at the London Jazz" Club. They are a traditional cult, playing the old songs of the New Orleans Negi-oes, and the New Orleans music that moved up to Chicago, was taken up by white musicians and was labeled. "Chicago Jazz." Lyttelton has a style of his own, but it's built on the solid principles of Louis Armstrong. Two years ago Lyttelton wore a beard. "What happened to that?" "If you'll pardon the expression," said • this former Cambridge student, 'I used to get too hot." Lyttelton is a first cousin of Vis- ;ount Chandos of Aldershot, former colonial secretary.
