Y. <UPI) - Nationalist China told the General Assembly today that if Communist China gained a U. N. Seat, it would try to wreck the United Nations as it has split the Communist camp. Ambassador Liu Chieh, chairman of the Nationalist delegation, attacked the Peking re- - • - : ——- gime as the mischief-maker of the Communist world. He leaned heavily on Moscow's own criticism of Red China to support his arguments. His speech was a sharp rejoinder to Albania's demand that the assembly expel the Nationalist government and seat Communist China in the United Nations. Albania and Cambodia have proposed a resolution to that end. Quotes Soviets Liu quoted the Soviet government newspaper Izvestia as saying Sept. 21 that the, Chinese Communists tried to discredit Soviet leadership with the aim of "splitting the Communist movement and undermining the unity of the anti- imperialist forces." The Nationalist delegate asked: "If the Chinese Communists can do all this to the Soviet Union and the. international Communist movement, what would they not do to destroy the United Nations?" He asserted that bringing Mao Tze-tung's representatives into the organization "could lead to the disintegration of the United Nations." "When that time comes," he said, "all the problems with which the United Nations is presently faced would cease to matter. They would have been solved in the way that death puts an end to all bodily ills." Liu said he would shed no tears over disruption of the Communist camp because "as far as we know world domination still stands out on the Communist agenda."

Germany BONN, Germany (AP)—Ludwig Erhard, who directed West Germany's miraculous postwar economic recovery, was elected chancellor today to succeed Konrad Adenauer. West Germany's lower house, the Bundestag, voted 279-180 to elevate the 66-year-old Erhard | 1 Bill Before Kennedy WASHINGTON (UPI) - A stop-gap bill, authorizing appropriation of an additional $50 million for loans to finance housing for the elderly, went to President Kennedy today for his signat\ire. The Senate passed the measure Tuesday. The money authorized in the bill wpuld be added to the existing fiscal 1964 budget request of $125 million for the program. to the top government spot left vacant by Adenauer's reluctant retirement Tuesday. There were 24 abstentions and one invalid vote. Erhard needed 250 votes to win. His Christian Democrats were joined by their partners in the. coalition government, the Free Democrats. The Socialists voted, against him. Has Opposition Erhard has been economics minister throughout Adenauer's tenure as West Germany's only chancellor since the Federal Republic was created in 1949. Adenauer made no secret that he felt Erhard incapable of fill* ing his shoes. He retired at 87 only under extreme pressure from other leaders of his party. Erhard has promised to follow Adenauer's basic foreign policies of support for the Western Alliance, demand for Ger man reunification and reconciliation with France. But he is expected to show less resistance to U.S. efforts to ease cold war tensions and to open up the European Common Market to trade with the rest of the free world. That will be the big difference. Barring the unexpected, Erhard will serve the two years until the 1965 general election But in that campaign he will face a tough battle trying to regain a Bundestag majority for the Christian Democrats Opin ion polls show the Socialists have become the country's most popular party although Erhard personally is strongly -approved by the voters. Erich 'Mende, head of the Free Democrats, will succeed Erhard as vice chancellor and will replace Rainer Barzel, a Christian Democrat, as minister for all-German affairs. Kurt Schmuecker of the Christian Democrats will become minister of economics. This will leave the 21 Cabinet posts divided as before — 16 Christian Democrats to five Free Democrats. The religious balance in the Cabinet is also maintained at 11 Protestants to 10 Catholics. Erhard is a Protestant and Adenauer a Catholic Religion plays a big role in West German politics just below the surface. 10 i Where to Find It 4 SECTIONS 40 PAGES Abingdon — 26 Amusement 6 Bushnell ..: 29 Classified Ads .-,.—38-39 Comics-TV-Radio . 36 Editorial 4 Food Section 20-32 Gajva — - « Hospital Notes 6 Knoxville _— 29 Markets-. — 40 Monmouth — 32 Obituary '. 37 Sports 3^-34-35 Weather 2 Women in the Newt 1344-15
