African units began moving into the Congolese capital of Leopold- vllle Friday aboard U.S. planes, only a day after the Security Council gave Hammarskjold a go* ahead to set up the task force. Diplomats reported Hammar- skjold plans to send in about 4,000 troops' by the end of next week and another 2,000 by the end of, the month. Most are to be Africans.

Hagerty, White House children sponsored by the Jun- press secretary, announced at a news conference that Eisenhower also will deal next week, on Monday, with arrangements for providing confidential national security briefings to the Democratic and Republican presidential and vice presidential candidates. This policy of keeping the candidates informed regarding security developments on a secret basis goes back to World War n days. The briefings during the campaign this year will be conducted, as Hagerty put it, by a responsible official of the Central Intelligence Agency. The Democrats briefed will be. Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts, who heads the party's ticket, and his vice presidential running mate, Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas. On the Republican side. Vice President Richard M. Nixon is the shoo-in candidate for president. His running mate will also be named by the GOP National Convention opening in Chicago July 26. As a member of the National Security Council, Nixon already has access to all of the security information that will be made available to the candidates by the CIA. Eisenhower scarcely had unpacked this time on arrival from Washington when things started popping. During the next few days: "Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev pledged full support to Cuba's Castro regime in its bitter quarrel with the United States, and be threatened to hit America with Soviet rockets if the United States dared intervene in Cuba. In reply, Eisenhower warned that ior Service League of Alton will begia Monday and run for two weeks, at Monticello College. The recreation program this year will include new activities such as water safety instruction, ceramics, and art classes utilizing such media as chalk, charcoal, water-color, and oil. The Camp is staffed largely by volunteers. Organizations that have pledged assistance either at Camp or with transportation, in addition to the Junior Service League of Alton include the Jaycee Auxiliary of Alton, brothers of the Oblate Novitiate, the Fort Russell Pioneers, and the Junior Service League of Granite City. Many individuals have offered their services. At least one registered nurse will be in attendance each day. Ministers of various denominations from Alton, Wood River, Granite City, and Godfrey will start each day with a prayer, Camp will be in session from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Occupational therapy and speech therapy will be given daily during the 10-day period. Applications are still being accepted 'according to the camp director, Mrs. John Roach.

Stevenson Supporters Still Going LOS ANGELES (AP) — Some lO.OOO people went out to see the Democrats wind up their national convention Friday night in, a king ize baseball field noted for its Chinese" homers. They saw quite a show. They saw Adlai E. Stevenson almost derailed by what looked ike an Indian uprising. They saw the Democrats rake he Republicans on land and in he air and for a while it seemed the Republicans were counter- ttacking from the sky. They saw enough movie stars and marching bands and motorcycle cops riding in formation to the "Dragnet" theme music) o remake "Ben Hur" in modern dress. And, of course, they saw the nominee, Jack Kennedy, make his big acceptance speech and they saw the losers praising him as hough he had been their choice all the time. Sen. Stuart Symington even went so far as to explain why Kennedy beat Symington and Stevenson and Lyndon B. Johnson for the top spot. "How did he do it?" Symington aid. "He did it because he has ust a little more courage, stam- na, wisdom and character than the rest of us." Kennedy also got high praise from Johnson, his running mate, who apparently is convinced that Kennedy matured enough in the ast two days to be president.

But they expressed confidence jthat the United States, through i caution and cooperation with others, could help the West and discredit the Kremlin's tactics before the bar of world opinion. shrink from resolute measures to, curb the aggression." U. S. authorities believed Khrushchev was deliberately presenting a false picture of the Congo situation in a drive to reap propaganda gain no matter what happens. One Khrushchev aim, they figured, is to tag Uncle Sam with an "aggressor" label just as he has tried to do in Cuba and elsewhere. The first bloodmobile visit for the Alton-Wood River Chapter's new fiscal year started off on the wrong foot Thursday when only 40 units of blood were collected, It was announced today." The quota for the one-day visit had been set at 125 units. Only 44 persons appeared to donate. Four were rejected for various medical reasons.
