Blytlievffle (Ark.) Courier New*-Monday, January M, 1967 -»f Snkarno-Iii or Out? THE REAL POWER now is Gen. Suharto, seated at left above when Sukarno listed new cabinet appointments last summer. Stripped of most of his administrative powers, uukarno, woo won independence for Indonesia from the Dutch in 1949, has been allowed to remain a figurehead president. .CAMIOWJE frHAIUND ^MALAYSIA PHILIPPINE IS. PACIFIC OCIM The riddle of leadership in Indonesia has long baffled Western observers. Top army generals have gradually edged President Sukarno out of his previous position of free-wheeling power, since an a bor live Communist coup against the military about 16 months ago, which Sukarno's critics claim he either engineered or condoned. But a complete and immediate ouster of "The Bung," as he is affectionately known to millions of Indonesians, has been delayed because of the emotional sway he holds over his countrymen. IN VERBAL WAR with the United Nations in 1965, Su- karno declared his country's withdrawal from the world organization. The protest was prompted by the election of the new Federation of Malaysia—an anti-Red group of nations— to the Security Council. Sukarno's threats of war against Malaysia, observers said, were to draw attention from his own country's near-bankruptcy. THE SPRAWLING NATION of Indonesia includes such ai complex of Southwestern Asian islands that it is now the fifth largest nation in the world. Thus the U.S. became disturbed as Sukarno became more and more entangled with the Communists. Shown above is Indouesia and Malaysia, which drew threats of invasion from Sukarno after it was formed in 1963. When Sukarno lost most of his administrative powers, Malaysia and Indonesia agreed to restore normal relations Aug. 11,1966. U.S. INTELLIGENCE claimed that until Gen. Suharto's rise to power, Sukarno was a mere political puppet for Communist party leaders. Shown above, he is greeting Red Chinese Counsellor Mao Yen-Chung in a recent reception for foreign diplomatic corps and Indonesian leaders.

By JOHN R. STARR Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP)-County organization is critical to any political party and Republican chairman apparently are ready to assume the Job imposed on them by the OOP's new status as Arkansas' majority party.
