APRIL 1M4 (ARK.) OOimiER JfEWg PAGE THKEB Egypt Bans Leaders of Farouk Era Chiefs of Thro M«jor Forties Out far Deceit By H3W NAGATI CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — Egypt's military government baftifcbed from politics for a decade today aM leaders of the naftk)« ? s three major parties who held o&iee during ex- Faffouk's last 10 years on throne. The Revolutionary Council's order stamping the old politians of 1f»eir rights to hold off-ice or lead their parties struck at most of the pftat premiers and Cabinet mem- bets who governed the country before the present military junta seiaed power in July 1952. It also would keep such former political leadership out of the national advisory council which the militar-y regime has said it would set up to assist in the transition to eventual civilian rule. The order applied to Egypt's three main political parties—the Wafdists, Saadists and Liberal Constitutionalists. It said nonpartisan miaisfcers would not be affected "unless the Revolution Council r-H'les otherwise." Marathon Session The sweeping decision was reached in a marathon council session that started at noon yesterday and ended in a joint meeting with the subordinate civilian Cabinet early today. It was seen as another major victory for Vice Premier Lt. Col. Ga-mal Abdel Nasser in his struggle for power within the council agaiast President - Premier Maj. Gen. Mohamed Naguib. The latter • favored lifting the present ban on political parties and a return to parliamentajy rule following elec- tioBs in July. Naguib was forced to reverse his pledges of such a program on March 29 after pro-Nasser street demonstrations protested the return of the old politicians and demanded the Revolution Council continue to rule the country. Naguib collapsed during that crisis and was reported still confined to his bed—too ill to attend the all- night session which reached today's decision. Nasser presided. Guidance Minister Salah Salem said the order banishing the old politicians aimed to bar a comeback of those "who ruled Egypt under Farouk's corrupt regime and were, through their compliance with Farouk and due to their failure to resist his tyranny, responsible for the corruption of Egypt's political life." -The World's Oldest War By Walter Parkes and Ralph Lane Some say Ho is a mere figurehead, kept for his personal popularity. They say real control is held by the Toog Bo, a secret Communist executive committee headed by five Red extremists. M?; W<<ti:'>^f'^ '^•SP However that may be, by 1949, the original struggle of the Indo-Chinese people to escape from harsh French colonial rule was submerged in the greater fight between world- Communism and anti-Communist forces. Wif/ys Motors Workers Okay Wage Cut TOLEDO, Ohio OP)—So' that their employer can better compete with other auto makers, production em- ployes of Willys Motors, Inc., have voted to take a pay cut of as much as 10 per cent. The vote was taker; yesterday after Richard T. Gosser, vi<^ president of the CIO United Auto Workers, told the employes the cut is necessary to stabilize Willys' economic position. Part of the loss may be recovered if a new bonus pay plan can be worked out. The new pay plan does not affect basic hourly wages, but has the effect- of eliminating incentive pay, awarded workers who produce more than a fixed quota for their jobs. With Willys currently employing about 7,000 production workers at an average wage of $80, a 10 per cent cut coujd save the firm $56,000 weekly in labor costs. Gosser said the union hopes to reduce Willys' production costs 20 per cent within six months, making it competitive with General Motors, Chrysler and Bord.
