The measure now goes to the Council of the Republic, the upper chamber. It is i expected to run into tougher opposition there but not enough to give Premier Guy Mollet any real trouble. Areas involved under the new measure in"West~and Central Africa have a total population of 20,396,000. The bill gives the government an almost free hand in ending the division In political and civic affairs between European and'native populations. It provides for ending the present split of local assemblies into European and native sections. .The bill also authorizes the government to take steps to raise living standards.

Sweeping, green pencils of light on radar scopes: the chatter of computing machines; illuminated charts that show the arrival of planes in the area. The system relates this information, in split- seconds, to the location of nike batteries. Friends From Foe Officials said the missile master can detect individual planes of a mass raid, assign a battery to specific planed - and sort out friend and foe among aircraft in the area. The.Army says: "Missile master is the first integrated system for tying together all elements of antiaircraft missile defense from target detection to target destruc tion." The missile master center relies on two sources of information: data passed along from the distant Sage stations; data obtained from two radar outfits which are parts of the center. A "surveillance" radar, with range of about 200 miles, sweeps the skies constantly, on watch for unidentified, aircraft. A seconc "height finding" radar assists with data on the range of an approaching plane,' its course, altitude, speed. Officials said permanent m!ssil< master installations in other met ropolltan centers would be start: ed "in the near future." Congress is considering such a construe tion program, a spokesman said file which had been .__ _ Ism every morning for breakfast.' Max himself candidly acknowledged that he was "very much jolted" by the anti-Stalin policy, but declared- that talk of a Poster ouster was "just preposterous." As' for a party split, he continued, there's no sign of one. Referring to the letters to toe editor i his paper, he said: "Far from a split, there's going to be a lot of discussion and as a result, many people who've left the party will come back." On the matter of the articles written by him and Foster, he said there was no conflict but merely "a discussion of the same subject from different approaches." The Times had interpreted Foster's article as urging "a go-slow policy in re-evaluating Stalin's that his re- be directed The paper added "seemed to ;ee no "need "for that sort of thing now or at anytime. And I- didn't see any need for the manifesto that Was presented to Congress." Gov. Faubus, claiming that 85 per cent of."all" Arkansans favor segregation, announced yesterday that he would put his blessing on the circulation of petitions for initiated acts concerning interposition and a pupil assignment plan against Mr. Max," whose own article had been published two days previously. Max 'comments apparently were an acceptance of the new Moscow program but also seemed to raise questions about party leadership in both countries. Asked for comment on the ouster reports and interpretations of the articles. Foster asserted it all was "a lot of nonsense—speculation without any basis in fact."

Will Lose Popularity However, Sen. Ellehder <D-La) said in Washington "the South will not accept" Kefauver as the Democratic presidential nominee. Ellender said the South "will not go for Kefauver's views on civil rights." The Lousiana senator said "it looked to him as though Stevenson will lose popularity "irom here on out" and that "it will be necessary to nominate someone else other than Kefauver." Ellender said his first choice for the nomination is Sen. Kerr (D- kla) but that Kerr "doesn't seem to want it." Thus, Ellender added, "I'd be 100 per cent for Lyndon Johnson," the Senate democratic leader who has said he is considering a suggestion that he seek endorsement as Texas' favorite son candidate. Speaking in Sarasota, Fla., GOP Chairman Leonard W. Hall said the segregation issue had caused whatMie termed a "complete philosophical split" among the Democrats. He said he didn't believe the Republicans had been hurt in the South as a result of the Supreme Court's .decision against public school segregation. Hew Installment Plan ALBANY, N. Y.
