Student Assassinates Jap Socialist Party Chairman Friend of Commies Stabbed During Talk throng of ( 10,000 TOKYO (AP)-A fanatic right- wing student today assassinated the Socialist party chairman, Inejiro Asanuma, an avowed friend of Communist China and the militant leader of Japanese opposition to the U. S.-Japan alliance. The assassin, a slender Otaya Yamaguchi, 17, stabbed Asanuma twice with a foot-long sword as Asanuma spoke to a political forum on clean campaign practices. Members of the audience hurled the youth to the floor and carried him off to police headquarters. A leftist marched on police headquarters and then on the official residence of Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda, demanding Ikeda's resignation. They shouted "Down with terrorism." A few of the marchers broke windows in an ineffectual attempt to break into police headquarters but otherwise there was no violence. The demonstrators began to disperse after a Cabinet official received leaders of the leftist labor federation Sohyo and told them the government would proceed with firmness. Police reported that the young killer confessed he had plotted the assassination for the past three days and said he had no accomplice. Police said hr told them Asanuma was a traitor who was trying to sell Japan to the Communists, munists. Asanuma was hurried to a hospital where he died of two chest wounds, one of them close to the heart. The assassin was a former member of the ultranationalist Greater Japan Patriotic Society.

Kennedy "has told the Chinese Reels they can have Quemoy and Malsu the day he is sworn in as president," former Gov. Allan Shivers told a political gathering hero Tuesday night. "I don't want a president who will invite the enemies of freedom to gobble up another slice—even a little slice—of free territory," Shivers said in a speech that was carried on 15 Texas television stations.

Nixon and Henry Cabot Lodge arc the Republican candidates for president and vice president. Shivers, a Democrat, supported President Eisenhower in 11)52 and 1956. "Last Friday night we saw and heard Senator Kennedy face the nation on television and repeat something: he has said before: The Chinese nationalist islands of Quemoy and Matsu could not and should not be defended against Red Chinese attack," Shivers said. "As I listened with a cold chill of apprehension, I seemed to hear another voice from the past saying 'Korea is outside the perimeter of our defenses,"' Shivers said. Shivers said Kennedy has consistently been against the best interests of Texas. He quoted Kennedy's voting record on such issues as the oil depletion allowance and state ownership of the tidelands. Shivers said Kennedy has achieved a "perfect" voting record for the past three years, "Perfect, that is, on the score sheets of the radical Americrfns for Democratic Action."

"I say to you this is un-American, It makes me sick and it makes me want to fight and that is what I am doing," Truman said. Truman, on stage with House Speaker Sam Raybum and Sen. Ralph Yarborough, while Texas vise presidential nominee S en. Lyndon Johnson stumped t h e South, devoted more than half his 30 minute speech to the question of religion. The setting was in a Central Texas area heavily populated by Baptists, like Truman, Rayburn and Yarborough. Many Baptist ministers and other non-Caiholic clergymen have openly questioned Kennedy's qual ificntion to serve as president in view of his Catholic religion. "I think that Jack Kennedy has responded very well to the attacks on his religion," Truman said. "He has answered all treasonable questions with patience, with dignity and candor." He said Kennedy made it perfectly clear at Houston, "if it ever needed to be made clear, that he will exercise his duties as president of the United States free from interference from the Catholic church. If anyone had any honest doubts about this question, it seems to me that those doubts ought to be completely satisfied by this time." of the big left-wing labor federation Soliyo—Asa^uma's comrades- in-arms in demonstrations against the new U.S. -Japan security treaty last spring—led the march on the station. They carried placards proclaiming "Down with the Ikeda Cabinet which killed Asanuma" and "Don't permit terrorism." It was the first major political murder in 24 years in a country where "government by assassination" was prevalent before World War II. But it was the third political stabbing by a rightist fanatic in four months—the other victims recovered — and it raised fears that ultranationalist terrorism once again is becoming a major factor in political life. Asanuma, 81, was in the midst of a speech when Yamaguchi rushed from the left side of the stage and struck twice with his sword. Asanuma staggered two or three steps, held, his chest, mum bled some words and collapsed on the blood-spattered stage. Lumumba Fans Stone European Drivers Today LEOPOLDVILLE, the Congo (AP)—Scores of Patrice Lumum ba's supporters, barred from visit ing the deposed premier at his guarded residence, took out their anger on white motorists in this tense capital today. Europeans driving by; Lumum ba's luxurious villa ran into a hail of stones from a crowd of Congolese massed in the area. No damages or serious injuries were reported in these and other spo radio incidents, but hostility toward white residents apparently was on the rise. While opposing soldiers facec each other around the Lumumba residence, the Congo's ruling gov ernment commission pondered the next move in its efforts to arresi the ousted premier.
