C-a^aAfiiftieJi' i-A <S&$ GIVE THE UNITED WAY Knox County United Fund-Red Cross Appeal Oct. 1-24 To Join ALGIERS (AP)-Units of the Algerian army today began joining the dissident troops of rebellious Col. Mohand Ou El Hadji The colonel called for a decisive fight against President Ahmed Ben Bella's government. A .government officer in Tizi Ouzou, capital of the Berber area of Kabylie which is the nerve center- of the revolt, said most noncommissioned, officers and men in the area have deserted. Informants in Tizi Ouzou said all was quiet in the city and virtually all troops disappeared from the streets. Small convoys were seen heading toward the mountains where Ou El Hadj has been organizing his stronghold. Issues Call Ou El Hadj called on officers and men of his 7th Military Region "to join us in our combat." .The time has come to engage in a decisive struggle against the dictatorial regime," the appeal said. There was < no immediate comment from the government in Algiers. It appeared to know little about the situation in the moun- tanous region, some 60 miles east of the capital. Ben Bella sought to rally the Algerian 'masses against the threat to his one-man rule. A call was issued for a mass demonstration of support to Ben Bella tonight in the Algiers Forum Square. Ben Bella tried to electrify the lethargic masses by announcing that Moroccan troops were concentrating near the Algerian frontier. He said Morocco was backing the Berber revolt which broke out Sunday in the Kabylie Mountain region east of Algiers. Uses Scare Tactics Speaking with emotion, the president said: "Moroccan soldiers of (King) Moulay Hassan are ten meters (yards) from the Algerian Practically All Prelates Back Change VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican Ecumenical Council today approved in principle a keystone document redefining the nature of the Roman Catholic Church. It is expected to help advance the cause of Christian unity. A Vatican official said more than 2,200 prelates voted for the schema (topic) "de ecclesia" concerning the chUfth. The official said about 45 council fathers voted against, and about 25 cast frontier^ We know what It 'means. We fear nothing. We can defend ourselves." Morocco has been demanding a portion of the Algerian-held Sa hara and the', relationship between, the .two, governments has been stiff > and; frequently hostile. Ben' Bella implied the purpose of the alleged concentration of Moroccan troops was to draw Algerian troops away from the Kabylie and to the frontier. The president also announced his government has nationalized two more European-owned hotels and a vegetable oil factory in Algiers owned by a Moslem. He promised to seize all European farm property in several days; an obvious bid for support from the impoverished masses. Calm was reported in the Berber bastion of Greater Kabylie, where small government troop convoys made tentative moves to establish garrisons. Demo Leaders Ponder Wheat Sale to Reds WASHINGTON (UPI) — President Kennedy and Democratic congressional leaders conferred today about prospects for sale of American surplus wheat to the Soviet Union. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield told reporters afterward that "the matter is under serious consideration and Con gress is being kept informed" by the administration. "The matter is still under dis cussion," Mansfield said. He said the matter came up only "incidentally" at Kennedy's regular weekly breakfast meeting with the leaders and received only brief mention because of the press of other business. Asked whether it would be nec essary for Congress to indicate its attitude on the question before an export license was issued for the wheat sale, Mansfield replied "Not at all." But he emphasized that the Senate committees with an interest in the matter were being kept informed of developments. Ten Republican wheat state congressmen earlier urged the chief executive to "clarify" his position on the wheat proposal.

Exact figures were expected to be announced later. The vote at the council working session in St. Peter's Basilica gave the green Jight for detailed discussion of the schema, which examines anew the structure of the Roman Catholic Church and the rights and duties of the Pope, Bishops, priests and laymen. In the detailed discussion which began immediately after the vote, the schema undoubtedly will undergo changes. Before it becomes an official document, there will be further votes on individual parts and on the final text. The importance of today's vote was that the council decided to go ahead with the schema, which had been revised from an original text strongly criticized at the council's first session last Decern ber as too academic and rigid in tone. An unfavorable vote today would have possibly shelved the topic. Today's vote ended the general discussion. Text of the schema is a council secret. However, it is known to expand the sharing by bishops in the Pope's authority. The last Ecumenical Council, in 1870, defined papal infallibility and emphasized the supreme power of the pontiff. A comple mentary thesis on how the bishops as a body share in that authority never reached the floor. The schema is considered a fundamental document upon which the council will base virtually all its work of reform and renewal. Dillon Bids For Similar Loan Rates WASHINGTON (UPI) - Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon said today that international monetary stability required that all major trading countries maintain short-term interest rates reasonably well in line with each other." Dillon, in a speech prepared for the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund, (IMF), admitted that domestic financial goals sometimes would limit this emphasis on uniform short term rates. However, he said that it generally should be feasible "to encourage small changes in short term rates in the interest of speeding restoration of interna tional equilibrium,'' The U.S. go^ernrnent recently took action to raise short-term rates to discourage investors from sending their money overseas. The loss of short-term capital has aggravated the U.S. balance of payments problem. Dillon said that interest rate adjustments by a country and their subsequent effect on international monetary stability should be discussed by such financial the IMF. "The critical question is how the adjustments are - to be made," he said. "Balance can be—and too often in the past has been—forced by measures that endanger domestic stability or the prospects for growing trade." Retains Gambling Ties Behind Bars WASHINGTON (UPI) — Underworld informer Joseph Valachi said today that jailed Cosa Nostra leader Vito Genovese still has gambling interests in Las Vegas, Nev., in association with gambler Meyer Lansky. Valachi also told of gangland murders in a struggle for control of New York I Home Warns Red China of Nuclear War UNITED N A TIO N S, N. Y. (UPJ) — British Foreign Secre* tary Lord Home today welcomed Russia's renunciation of war as an instrument of national policy and warned Communist China that a nuclear conflict would annihiliate it. Home, in a policy speech to the General Assembly, told 'he new countries of Asia and Africa to drop their cry of "neo-colonialism" unless they want to lose investment capital from the developed countries. "A few more cases like that of Indonesia and the supply of capital will dry up," Home said in a brief reference to the seizure of British investments in In- donesia following the London- backed formation of the new federation of Malaysia. Home said there were signs that herald "a new chapter of cooperation" between East and West. Ready to Split "Mr. Khrushchev has time and again in recent months declared on behalf of the Soviet government that to interpret Communist doctrine in terms of world war is wrong and is folly," he said- "So strongly has he — to use the wrong metaphor — struck to his guns that he and his Soviet colleagues have been ready to solii the CcLEomunist world in half rather than compromise. .. "On paper, Communist theory may include the use of force but the national interest of the Soviet Union cannot endorse it.' "China at present may thinl; that from a nuclear holocaust she would inherit the earth. But she will learn as she gains nuclear knowledge that all her millions would not save her from annihilation if nuclear war were to break. China, too, in her turn, will be compelled to drop force from her national program if she wishes to survive." The Sees Some Value lean aud balding British leader said he^could see some value in Russia's proposal for an 18' nation disarmament summit conference in Moscow next year if preliminary talks showed a possibility of agreement on: —Refusal of countries having nuclear weapons to give them, or the secret of making them, to countries that do not have them. —Stationing of observers in NATO and Warsaw pact countries as a guard against surprise attack. —Progress on the first stage of general disarmament:, including abolition of some nuclear delivery vehicles. Raging Flora Is Described As Dangerous MIAMI, Fla. (AP)-Flora, labeled the most dangerous hurricane of the season, raged in the Caribbean with top winds Of 110 miles an hour today. Emergency supplies were being sent to her first victim, the Robinson Crusoe island of Tobago. Damage to Tobago and her 40,000 residents, just off the coast of Venezuela, probably ran very high, the weather bureau said. Communications were cut and one of the few reports to get out simply said damage was extensive. "This is by far the most dangerous storm of the season, tightly knit and concentrated," said forecaster Gilbert Clark of the National Hurricane Center at Miami. "It is going to have to hit land somewhere before it can get out of the Caribbean." Congressmen Are Arrested In Venezuela CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Eight Communist and leftist congressmen were jailed and'l5 others were sought by police today after drastic government orders canceling their parliamentary immunity. President Romulo Betancourt's regime accused the congressmen of masterminding bombings, holdups and kidnapings by the terrorist Armed Forces for National Liberation (FALN). It said Venezuela would no longer tolerate the perversion of parliamentary immunity. The government was provoked into action by a train ambush Sunday in which five national guardsmen were killed and eight persons, including women and children, were wounded. Gunmen followed up the ambush with a $16,000 robbery Monday of the Caracas city comptroller's office and a $3,300 holdup of a U.S.- owned machinery firm. David Keeps Busy GREAT BENTLEY, England (UPI) — David Lee, 37, charged with chopping down 18 apple trees, was ordered to receive medical inspection Monday after he told police, "I have to do something to keep my mind occupied." mobs as he resumed his testimony before the Senate investigations subcommittee. The subcommittee unveiled a master chart naming the leaders of New York's notorious "five families" which allegedly dominate the rackets in the nation's largest city. It said Genovese, Carlo Gambino, Guiseppe (Joe) Magliocco, Joseph Bonanno and Gaetano Lucchese now control the underworld with the aid of seven un- derbosses. Sen. Jacob Javits, R - N. Y, recalled that Valachi testified Friday that Genovese, now serving a 15 - year term for narcot ics violations at the federal prison in Leavenworth, had interests in Las Vegas. He asked what outfit was under Genovese's control Do Everything Together "Anywhere that Meyer Lansky is, there's Genovese," Valachi replied. "They do everything together." He said the ties persisted to the present as far as he knew. Lansky has long been listed as a top-level racketeer by law enforcement authorities. In 1951 the special Senate Crime Committee, headed by the late Sen. Estes Kefauver, D - Tenn., grouped Lansky with Frank Costello and Joe Adonis as "the eastern axis of a combination of racketeers working throughout the nation." In that period Lansky's position as outlined by the Kefauver committee, was clearly above Genovese's in the hierarchy of what the 1951 committee called the "Mafia." Valachi also said that a "rumor" circulated in his gang that Abe Reles, a witness against Genovese who was being held in protective custody more than 10 years ago, was thrown out of a hotel window by police who were guarding him. "The boys talked about it," Va­ lachi said. "I believed it." Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy said meantime that the government plans to use Valachi later as a witness in federal criminal trials against certain leaders of organized crime. The attorney general, who opened the hearings last week by warning that Cosa Nostra is a powerful "invisible government" with a multi-million dollar income, declined to^ specify the. cases in which Valachi would be used. Expects Testimony But he made clear in an interview with UPI that he hoped the testimony of the confessed killer and convicted narcotics peddler would help send some of his former cohorts to prison. The red, blue and green chart unveiled by the subcommittee showed a series of gangland assassinations dating back to 1930. It said Genovese's group now is dominated by Thomas Eboli, alias "Tommy Ryan," Gerardo Catena, known as "Jerry" and Michel Miranda, a high-level adviser known as "Mike." The Gambino gang, closely linked to the Genovese "family" on the chart, was led by Don Carlo Gambino. Joseph Biondo, alias Joe Bandi and Cunniglie- du, was shown as second-in-command. Magliocco's deputy was listed as Salvatore (The Sheik) Mussachio. Carmine (Little Cigar) Galante was described as No. 2 man to Bananno. Lucchese's deputy was said to be Stefano La- saole. The five families emerged from a war between a gang led by Guiseppe Masseria and a rival faction under Salvatore Maranzano, the committee said. The Maranzano group briefly emerged on top and their leader was "boss of Dosses'? for a time after the murder of Peter (The Clutching Hand) Morello in 1930, according to the chart. A mysterious "Buster from Chicago" was listed as the slayer of Morello and as one of the killers in - other gangland? sinations. • • • • Soviets Strengthen Border With Chinese LONDON (UPI) — The Soviet Union was reported today to be strengthening its guards along the frontier with Red China and its naval forces in the Far East. Diplomatic sources said both moves appeared to be precautions prompted by the worsening Sino-Soviet conflict. The strengthening of border guards, was believed designed to discourage any further incidents along the disputed frontiers in the East, The show of naval strength in the Far East appeared largely aimed at Asian public opinion, as a reminder that the Soviet Union has important political stakes in the area and the strength to defend them. No Clash Expected No immediate clash was anticipated between the two Communist giants. Moscow, believed anxious to avert any deterioration in the conflict with Peking, was apparently taking precau­ tionary measures to discourage any possible Peking military moves. Russia last month claimed that more than 5,000 border violations had been eommittted by China and indicated the trouble was continuing. Moscow also gave a direct warning to Peking to stop its "provocations" or face a "decisive rebuff." The Russians did not spell out the nature of the rebuff they had in mind. Two Pedistrlani; Meet Death ifai Decatur Streets? DECATUR, 111. (UPI) — Two pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents here in less than, 24 hours. r Benjamin Jackson, 63, Decatur, was pronounced dead on .arrival at Macon County Hospital here today after he was struck by an auto on the North Side. The driver of the car, Cynthia McGowan of Decatur, was admitted to the hospital for treatment of shock. Authorities said Jackson apparently stepped in front of the vehicle. . ;jj Joseph Riggs, 5, son of Mr, and Mrs. Joseph Riggs, was killed when struck by a car on his way to a grocery store Monday. The driver of the car, Teetie Moore, 44, said he made a turn at an intersection and heard the impact when the car struck the boy. No charges were filed.
