Two logansport, Indiana. Pharos-Tribune Report New Seizure of Dutch Land By ROBERT MONAHAN United Press Staff Correspondent JAKARTA, Indonesia (UP) — President Sukarno called today for "national struggle" in the showdown with The Netherlands over control of . Dutch-held West New Guinea. As he spoke there were reports of new seizures of Dutch property in the Celebes. Sukarno spoke to a "free West Irian" rally in Surabaya, in East Java. It was his first public appearance since the abortive assassination attempt Nov. 30. Reports said heavy security precautions were in force at Surabaya. "We are not making compromises..." Sukarno told his cheering audience. He said Indonesians must be prepared to make heavy sacrifices if they hope to wrest control of West Irian (West New Guinea) from the Dutch. He warned the nation would face shortages of food, clothing and other vital goods. Sukarno also was quoted as say- Ing that "too many people seek to concentrate their hopes on the United Nations" to bring about a settlement of the controversy. "The struggle cannot be resolved In Washington, Moscow or Peiping —but in Indonesia," Sukarno said. The official "Free .West Irian" campaign was launched last week with a 24 - hour strike against •Dutch enterprises followed by seizures of various Dutch-owned properties and economic boycotts of Dutch nationals.
