lixteea lopuisport, Itiflana, Pfiaros-Trlbun* Algier Land Poverty and EDITORS NOTE: XJ.P. P»ri« manager Arthur Uigbee ha* flown to Algeria for some clows- up reporting of the rebellion 1» the French,colony. This i» hl« • first dispatch. " By ARTHUR HIGBEB United Tress Staff Correspondent TIZI-OUZOU,: Algeria (UP)— "Pretty country, this," -you 're' mark' as the sedan, sweeps through the 'corktree and willow covered hills of the Grand Kaby- lie. "Prettiest on earth," agrees the young civil servant fr-esh from Paris. This the heartland of the Algerian rebellion against France. These mountains spring up a scant 35 miles east of the modem cily of Algiers and stretch 70 miles along the Mediterranean and 70 miles south'toward the Sahara. They form the wildest. Wiliest, poorest, loveliest and most thickly populated region of Algeria. A million Moslems try to scratch a living from its "soil. Only 14,000 Europeans are among them. The Kabyles are an offshoot of the Berbers (meaning barbarians) who inhabited North Africa long before the Arabs swept through with the sword of Islam. They were never completely pacified and, with the coming of the nationalist uprising, the region boiled into what the French call "full effervescence." Uses Entire Division France has an entire division, the 27th Alpine, plus artillery and aviation, in this 'mountain' country to protect the Europeans and the vast majority of Moslems who have not joined the revolt. You ask an educated Kabyle how' the Algerian' struggle can be solved. "I do not know," he replies. "My people are in misery. Most of them are so poor that, quite literally, the only pleasure they can afford is sexual pleasure. Among the uneducated, birth control is an evil. And, as the population increases, so does the misery. "The French promised us full citizenship,, and we never got it. Now many of my people no longer want it. "Is independence tihe answer? Perhaps too easy an answer. I think we must have French help to survive. "For every rebel there are 10 sympathizers, and for every sympathizer 100 neutrals waiting to of Beauty, Violence see which'way the-wind blows. And what does a villager, do when ihe. rebels come and tell him to choose between joining them and iiaving his throat cut? •"Anyway, can the French army stay here forever? And what kind of life is it, being searched'at one earlier by the military and not knowing whether a rebel knife is going to get you at'the next?" Civilian boss of the Grand Ka- bylie is French Prefect R o b e r t Vignon. He is 47, a career civil servant born in Algeria. Vignon says the rtuation is improving, points to a chart on the wall of his .air-conditioned office. It lists 26 killed :>n . the French side in April compared to 46 six months ago_, 453 KJled on the rebel side in April compared to 161 six months ago. But Vignon "w1>uld rather talk of life than death.'of Moslem village governments and building projects. The Moslems, he says, now run one-four* of the 161 communes in the Grand Kabylie, Town and countryside Aliek are full of government-financed building- projects ' — roads, bridges, schools, hospitals; "We are building to the. limit," Vignon said.. "But,, as I tell the people, it is no good asking for them if they are going to be destroyed .by a few'fellagha (outlaws). They must help us to defend them."
