Thursday Evening, Jun« 1L !«*• Urging To Iks On West Guinea issue WASHINGTON (UPI) — Diplomatic officials said today the United Stales had proposed that Indonesia and The Netherlands resume negotiations here next Tuesday on the future of West New Guinea. They said the way appeared to have been cleared for talks on the long-standing and bitter dis- pule by United Nations Acting Secretary General U Thant's message to Indonesian President Sukarno that the Dutch accepted without qualification the Banker plan for settlement. This plan, formulated by retired U.S. diplomat" Ellsworth Bunker, provides for transfer of sovereignty over the territory from The Netherlands to Indone- Private Mass MEXICO CITY (UPI) — The Mass President and Mrs. Kennedy plan to attend here July 1 will be closed to the public, Roman Catholic church authorities announced today. A spokesman for the Mexico City archdiocese said the services will be "private in character." He did not say who will be allowed to attend. The Kennedys plan to go to Mass just before leaving for home after their weekend visit here late this month. sia over a two-year period. Dutch officials there would be replaced by U.N. administrators who, in turn, would be succeeded by Indonesians. The Dutch announced last Sunday they accepted Ihe plan "in principle." But Sukarno' asked Thant Wednesday for specific new assurances that The Netherlands agreed to a provision calling for a self-determination plebiscite of the native Papauaris only after In. donesia gained control. Thant replied Wednesday night that the Netherlands accepted the entire plan "without qualification." Bunker, who presided as mediator at meetings here last March between Dutch and Indonesians, again will serve in that capacity. The secret talks again will b« held at a country estate a few miles from Washington. West New Guinea has been in dispute between tile two countries since 1919, when the Indonesians won their independence. The status of primitive West New Guinea was not settled at the time, but wa"s to have been determined by negotiations within a year. The Netherlands and Indonesia failed to reach agreement and the case has been before the United Nations * number of times. } MONTGOMERY WARD 412 E.BROADWAY PHONE 4193 LOGANSPORT FRIDAY SATURDAY SPECIALS save! regularly 3.99 WOMIN'S COOL STRAW SLIDES Natural color leather trim.
