Six -Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Indonesia Seeks Support For Claims on New Guinea By CHARLES M. MCCANN rnltcJ Press ,StafI Correspondent Indonesia is trying to put pressure on the 1 United States and other allied countries to support its claim to Netherlands New Guinea. •Threats are being made that the "national interests" of allied .countries may be endangered if they side with The Netherlands. Hints also.are being made that Indonesia's' "neutralist" policy may swing further toward cooperation with Communist-ruled nations. The Indonesian government has made its dispute with The Netherlands over West New Guinea an issue in which any country which supports The Netherlands will be regarded as "colonialist." On the other hand, Indonesia . claims the solid support of all the Asian and African countries which oppose "colonialism." May Turn To Reds Newspapers in Jakarta, the cap- .Ital, are hinting that Indonesia may turn to Soviet Russia for aid. In its attempt to force The Netherlands to give up possession of West New Guinea, the Indr>- nesian government has taken con trol of all Dutch interests,' estimated to total more than one billion dollars in value. It is being intimated also that unless- The Netherlands gives in this property may be seized outright. An Indonesian Foreign Office spokesman warned members ol the North Atlantic Treaty Organization recently to "be on guard" against supporting The Netherlands. Support for The Netherlands, he said, would be taken as support of colonialism. Without specifying just what he meant, the spokesman then said he hoped NATO countries would not risk their own national interests "for the sake of Duth colonialism" in New Guinea. During the recent United Nations debate on New Guinea, the United States took a neutral attitude, despite the fact that The Netherlands is a fellow member of NATO. Indonesia Not Satisfied This, however, did not satisfy the Indonesian government. Foreign Minister Subandrio — he has no first name — complained in a speech in parliament last Saturday that the United States has shifted froro "the possibility of an active and constructive" policy. Such a policy, naturally, would have supported the Indonesian claim. The Indonesian government is pursuing its claim by every means despite indications that it may be heading toward chaos. Ever since the country won its independence from The Netherlands in 1949, there have been chronic revolts in several parts of the islands. Army officers have sized control of parts of Sumatra, j For months, there has been serious dissension in the parliament. For reasons not yet made quite clear, President Sukarno has requested "leave" to take a rest abroad. It is expected that he will leave the country Jan. 5. Nobody . knows whether he will return. Sartono, speaker of parliament, has been sworn in as acting president. In the campaign against Dutchmen in Indonesia, the government has caused severe economic dis- . location. The Netherlander are the economic brains of the country. As part of the dislocation, jt is now admitted that Indonesia faces a critical shortage of rice, its staple food. Scientists Meeting at Indianapolis , INDIANAPOLIS (UP) — The accent was on atomic energy, space travel, human behavior and dozens of other related topics today as the 124th convention of the American Association for the Advancement of Science opened a five-day session. Many of the nation's best scientific brains will present more than 1,000 papers to the dozens of plenary meetings. Speakers include Nobel Prize winner Dr. Herman J. Muller of Indiana University, whose topic is atomic radiation and fall-out caused by atomic explosions; guided missile expert Dr. A. George Carlton of Johns Hopkins; Dr. George E. Long of the Douglas Aircraft Co., an expert in' space • flight; Dr. Ronald A. Fisher of Cambridge University, like Muller a geneticist, and president Crawford H. Greenewalt of E.I.
