The informant said in an interview the munitions included..British-manufactured grenades which were shown by serial number to have, come from Egyptian army depots. Other arms, he said, were among some 300,000 weapons abandoned by German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel's army when it surrendered in Tunisia during World War n. The source said Tunisian nationalists spiritede these arms.south to the Libyan frontier. Others were hidden in dumps and desert regions of Tripolitania during the war. He said the rebels were trying to give themselves the appearance of regular troops by. wearing American surplus Army uniforms picked up in Tunisia. Garrison Captured The informant said that Algerian rebels -were being traintd by Mohammed el Kettabi, brother of the famed lord of the riff, Abd El Krim. He said they were receiving; commando training at three camps in Egypt. Rebel forces-captured a 13-man French.. garrison and killed six only 20 1 miles outside Algiers be- Com Iore dawn yesterday.

TRAFFIC (Continued from Page 1) number of lives." Dearborn said. The traffic toll since the end of World War II has been smaller during the New Year's period than at Christmas. In a survey over a nonholiday period of 78 hours, The Associated Press counted 364 traffic deaths. The survey was made for comparative purposes and covered a 78-hour period the weekend of Dec. 9-12. The Christmas traffic deaths averaged nearly 8 per hour. In the New Year period the average was around 4 J ^ per hour. ing seven men were still reported missing. The daring attack came several hours after a French armored patrol killed 16 rebels in an assault near Meskian, about 50 miles from the Tunisian border. REDS (Continued from Page 1) ship, three possibilities of a coalition seemed likely: 1. Paure or one of his -friends— perhaps Foreign- Minister Antoine Pinay—might lure enough Mendes- France supporters to make up a Cabinet team. 2 . Mendes-France - might work the same maneuver on the Faure- Pinay forces^. "4. Mendes-FrancL might yield to Communist pressure and take them into a "popular front" Cabinet. He has said he would not seek Red support, but some of his friends thought this might become inevitable. Another way oat would be for the Assembly to pass a new election law more likely to produce a clear majority and hold new elections in the enear future. Much appeared to depend on events in North Africa, one of thee main issues in-the short but-hard- fought campaign. If the revolt in Algeria gets worse, the deputies might call on Mendes-France, as they did to end the Indochinese war. Underlining the situation facing the new Assembly, nationalist rebels captured a 13-man garrison within 30 miles of Algiers itself yesterday and killed six of thi troops. A few hours earlier i French armored patrol killed 16 rebels about 50 miles from the Tunisian border. During the campaign Mendes- France promised to hold free Algerian elections in six months to get things going better there. But he got no clear mandate from the voters to try. 99« Memben The new Assembly will total 596 members temporarily, including 50 chosen yesterday in overseas are&s and two being picked later this month in the South Pacific islands. Elections for Algeria's 30 members were postponed indefinitely because of the terrorism there, and the seat for the former French holdings in India has not been reassigned. The new Assembly will ha'/e most of the old faces, though some will be missing;. Faure, Pinay. M-ndes-France, former Premiers Paul Reynaud. Edouard Daladier, Georges Bidault, Robert Schuman t and the top Communist leaders all were elected easily. Former Socialist Paul Ramadier returns to the Assembly after near ly five years' absence. Amon? the casualties were Pierre Billotte, defense minister in the Faure government, and Diomede Catroux, a member of BOTTLED UP—These jug-tooting high school lads from Provo, Utah, have formed a new kind of band. Bottles are their instruments. Their music is called! "watersport," because various notes are sounded by filling bottles to different levels with water.

Others in the "Blowhearts" band are, from left: Bob Shaw, Swen Swensen, Dave Weight, John Hart and Brent. Brockbank, all from Brigham Young University High School. Oh, yes, they don't really play in a jug. This is just a trick photo. CONGRESS (Continued from,Page 1) encourage development ' of water resources, give a uoost to housing construction and increase postal rates, as well as legislation in the field of labor, civil rights and statehood for Alaska and Hawaii. In broad outline, the administration's legislative goals generally parallel those advanced by Democratic leaders, but so far they are largeley in skeleton form. There wiK be plenty of debate, on details. The lawmakers should be able to -.wing into action quickly, sincg the present session picks up where the last one left off Aug. 2. Bills that already have moved part way through the legislative mill do not, have to retrace their steps. And, unlike the start of a new, freshly elected Congress, the committees and their chairmen are set up and ready to function. In prospect for the Senate Is an early battle over a bill passed by the House last year to exempt independent natural gas produceres from federal control. Opponents contend it would add millions to the bills of the nation's gas consumers. Supporters deny this and say the measure is necessary to assure adequate production. On taxes, a major source of political conflict, the administration has indfcated it is going to put a balanced budget ahead of tax reductions. It plans to wait until it Mendes-France's Cabinet. The Poujadist faction of small busifiesesemen, making its first ra on a "throw the rascals out" slogan, elected such new faces as two cafe proprietors, an uphol- .Isterer, a butcher and a traveling salesman. Poujade. a 35-year-old bookstore owner, was not a candidate himself, He stumped the country on behalf of candidates who espoused his call for tax relief for small merchants.

An airplane first was shown on a U.S. postage stamp in 1918. has a clearer picture of government spending and income before deciding whether to recommend a tax cut. Many members have said they favor a reduction .this year. Among factors Working against an early tax cut are administration plans to increase defense spending by a billion dollars to about 35>/i billions, step up foreign aid outlays by about 200 millions, and the prospect that Congress will vote more money -for farmers, schools, highways and various health programs. N .More words are likely, to be spilled over farm legislation than any othere issue in the present session, but what the ou ( come Will be is anybody's guess. , Democrats have beeri stressing the price squeeze on farmers, blaming the administration's flexible price support system, and they evidently -are banking on this as a potent campaign Issue. Top Democratic leaders have advocated a return, to rigid, high- level price supports, as provided in a. bill the House passed last year. However, not all Democrats agree on this course. Republicans also have their differences over farm policy. The administration Is standing b> its flexible support program but intends to ask Congress to supplement it with e "soil bank" subsidy plan and other measures to ease the plight of farmers. It blames the crop surpluses built up under Democratic .support programs for depressing farm prices. The outlook appears bright for[ enactment of a bill to increase fed-; eral aid for a mul lib ill ion-dollar' highway pro°n>m. More doubtful is the fate of legislation to provide federal funds for school construction, | In foreign policy, bipartisanship! is expected once f.gain to be the general rule. There may be considerable controversy over the administration's j announced plan to ask for nearly J five billion dollars in hew foreign aid funds, so as to build up a back-, log for spending in future years.!
