The veteran Asian nationalist al_o cautioned against putting a Communist tag on "every deviation from Western thoughts in Asia." Sukarno, who is scheduled to leave the country soon for a rest, made his statements Sunday in written replies to cabled questions from United Press at a time when his country is embroiled in a diplomatic battle with the Netherlands. He was asked specifically about a recent allegation by a London newspaper that Indonesia is heading for a Communist regime dependent on China and Russia. ' I am rather reluctan'. to comment on such an allegation...since it seems to me to become rather a hobby for some quarters to accuse a country or people as Communists if their views on political or economic affairs do not coincide with the West's," he 'said. He noted that Indonesia was one of the last countries to establish diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union and conducts relatively little trade with Russia or Communist China compared, with other nations in Asia and many in Western Europe. "But apart from that, let me express a firm warning to these quarters that it would not be wise :o ascribe every deviation from Western thoughts in Asia to communism or Communist influence," Sukarno said. He said development of political and economic stability calls for ingenuity of leadership and methods ;hat blend with the times. "I am afraid that if you regard 25.00-31.50, prime to 33.50.

Former Tax Official Indicted by Jury INDIANAPOLIS (OT)-<A grand jury today indicted former state tax official Frank Noll Jr. on a charge of embezzling $35,110 in public money. Noll was administrator of the Intangibles Tax -Division before lortages found in his office re- ulted in his ouster July 12. Examiners for the State Board f Accounts discovered Noll deposited money he received from ale of intangibles tax stamps nto his own bank account. Shortly after the discovery and shortage of more than $300,000 n the office of Perry County 'reasurer Earl Kieser, Governor Handley ordered a review of ac- ounts board auditing methods. The indictment returned by a Marion County grand jury accused l of converting intangibles tax money to his own use. In reply to further questioning Hagen said "you'd have to quibble there. It would be within a few pounds of 1000 pounds." The Russian Sputnik H weighs in excess of 1000 pounds. Hagen indicated an attempt to launch such a sphere would be made later. "We are planning to improve our satellite program following Vanguard," he said. Hagen declared that the Vanguard project's ..21-inch scientific satellite, still scheduled for launching in March, would be superior "in some ways" to Russia's bigger- Sputnik H. He said Vanguard would have "a tremendous amount of instrumentation in it."'

He had moved 15 miles in the last 1-2 hours. Hillary was moving at about 40 miles a day and appeared likely to reach his goal within a week.

Dulles said in his radio-TV report to the -nation last week that the NATO nations had agreed at their recent Paris, meeting on the desirability of closer liaison between NATO and other free world defense groupings. He specifically named the Baghdad Pact, SEATO and the Interamerican Alliance but did not elaborate on the nature of such liaison. Officials here said pending full discussions between NATO officials and representatives of the three other groups it would not be known what form-of cooperation is possible or desirable. One method,- it was suggested, would be assigning official representatives of one pact group to sit with the others. Officials said NATO itself is anxious to e_stablish closer liaison. They said it is unknown yet to what, extent the other regional ;roups want closer ties with NATO. Read the Classified Ad: mour, Ohio, to Thomas R. and Amelia Sites Reinbarger.
