IOGANSPORT PUBLIC LIMIT Traffic Deaths Mounting Faster Meeting Asked With i» Katangqns LEOPOLDVTLLE, the Congo <AP)—Congo President JToseph Kasavubu Saturday called on the provincial assembly of breakaway Katanga to meet at Kamma, a U N air. base in the northern part of the province. The call wa s seen here by diplb. matic observers ; as a move to puli n legal rug out from under Katanga President Moise Tshpmbe, who already has summoned; the assembly to meet in his capital, oi Elisabethville next' Wednesday! Tshombe-says the assembly must ratify h( s agreement to end Katanga's secession before k is binding. Practically, ..Kasavubu's maneuver could set the scene for test'bf strength between Kasavubu and Tshombe to see at'.whicl place the assembly will meet and on whose terms—and could;result in two rump assemblies. The /Leopoldville government has never admitted that-Tshombe's unity, accord with Congo Premier Cynlle Adoula at the U.N. air . base of' .Kitona just. before Christmas required ratification by the Katanga assembly. ' Nearly half of its elected members, belong .to the north Katanga Baluba tribe which-is bitterly hostile to Tshombe. • There is a question whether they would risk their- lives by setting foot in Tshombe's capital, even though Tshombe says he is willing for them to return and the United Nations has said it would-make arrangements to guarantee their security. . ' • Kasavubu's call for the assem bly to meet in "Kamina did'not specify a time. Although Kasavubu's action in calling a provincial assembly meeting seemed unusual,-Foreign Minister Justin' Bomboko offered a tight : legal .argument for the president's authority to do -so' under the Congo's fundamental 'law, .the provisional constitution that has not yet been ratified. tee Moore, 81,.

Fanners of the normally balmy state were warned by the Weather Bureau of another chill night with temperatures'as low as the-mid- 20s in some northern and- inland sections with substantial frost. Although not as severe as-the early Saturday freeze, the second seizure could be costly. One grower estimated 25 per cent frost damage to the north Florida strawberry crop near Plant City oh the Gulf Coast in Saturday morning's teen temperatures. No estimate of crop damage was available but some damage apparently, occurred in citrus -groves. The Florida cold siege which brought the "mercury down to 17 at Tallahassee and 19 in Gains- ville, flowed out of a. massive arctic ;visitation .-which spread, subzero marks-from' Iowa to New York State and: the Great Smoky Mountains of the Tennessee-North Carolina border.
