2B MCINE SUNDAY •UUETIN iunUy, July If, IMS AP Newsfeatures But They Won't Go Al I Out for the West Sahara Nations Continue Edging from Communists, Nasser Away (By the Associated Press) The left wing of the Arab world is shifting slightly to the right. In this case, the left is geographic. It's made up of Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco, the four Moslem states that sprawl in Saharan splendor across Nortli Africa. They occupy what Arabs call "the Maghreb" (literally, "the West"), a tacit acknowledgement that there is something different about them. The right is political. It means that the states of the Maghreb are coming to rebuff the blandishments of the Communist bloc, particularly the ubiquitous Red Chinese. It means too that they are taking a more and more skeptical view of Egyptian Pres. Gamal Abdel Nasser's self-assumed leadership of the Arab world. It does not mean, however, that they are ready to leap blindly into the Western camp. The latest manifestation of Maghreb independence was the June 19 coup that ousted Algerian Pres. Ahmed Ben Bella. The bombastic Ben Bella, about 45, who ruled Algeria for the first 33 months of its independence, was a close friend of Nasser and Communist Cuba's Premier Fidel Castro, who often referred to Algeria as Cuba's "sister nation." Under Ben Bella, Al­ geria was chosen as the site of the second Afro-Asian Conference, a pet project of the Red Chinese, and the Ninth World Youth Festival, Soviet Union promotion. The former was set for late June, the latter for this month. Both have since been postponed. Less Intimate Future relations between the new Algerian government and the Communist world probably will be a lot less intimate. Col. Houari Boume- dienne, about 40, the mastermind behind the coup, has just about said so. And, judging from their reaction to the news of Ben Bella's ouster, the Communists seem to think so, too. In his first public speech since the coup, the gaunt, publicity - shy Boumedienne warned the world in general —and the Communist world in particular: "For three years our country was infested with adventurers who called themselves advisers, who had made a mess of revolutions elsewhere and who tried to use Algeria as a test site for their experiments. Algeria has no need to receive advice from abroad on how to build socialism. This is a fact on which all revolutionary forces should mediate." Although Red China hastened to recognize the Bourne- Congress Postpones Wheat Referendum Date WASHINGTON — l/P) — Congress, in an unusual action, has decided there will be no referendum among the nation's wheat growers on a crop support program until 30 days after the present session. Senate and house agriculture committees indicated the real reason for the decision is that they expect to approve a new voluntary wheat program before adjourning. In that case, there would be no referendum at all. Wheat farmers for the past two years have operated under a temporary program in which growers qualified for price supports and other payments if they complied with planting and marketing allotments. That program has expired and both houses of Congress are at work on a new one. The measure postponing any referendum was necessary because a prior law directed the secretary of agriculture to conduct a referendum on mandatory quotas by Aug. 1. Some U.S. Cities May Need Martial Law Soon-Graham — (/P) — Evan-|ternatives. He listed the home, the church, the school and the government as agencies of prime responsibility but said they are failing to curb crime. "We may have to come to a federal police force," Dr. Graham said. "If we continue the way we are going, the climbing crime rate is almost going to require martial law in some of our big cities where people are afraid to go out on the streets." SEATTLE gelist Billy Graham says America's crime rate is rising so rapidly it may lead to martial law in some of the nation's large cities. Dr. Graham told a reporter he personally does not favor martial law or creation of a federal police force but considers them last-resort al- Mclayasians Arrest 38 Chinese Suspects KUCHING, Malaysia — iJP) — Police say they have arrested 38 Chinese suspects in an operation to ferret out Red terrorists in Malaysia's Borneo state of Sarawak. A dozen other persons reportedly have been taken into custody elsewhere on suspicion of being connected with the Clandestine Communist Organization, a Communist underground movement linked with Indonesia's crush Malaysia compaign. FLOWERS VALUABLE The value of Florida's cut flowers is about $19 million a year. The gladiolus is the commercial leader. dienne regime in hopes of saving the Afro-Asian Conference, the general Communist reaction was expressed by Castro when he told the Cuban delegation that would have gone to the Youth Festival that the coup was a "military putsch," the product of "treason." "Great Damage" "Independent of what they may do later, even though they be more revolutionary than anybody else, they have inflicted great damage to the revolutionary movement of Africa," he said. "If they decide to break relations with us, it does not matter. They would not be the first military to do so." The other states of the Maghreb — Morocco, Tunisia and Libya—have displayed a disenchantment with Nasser and communism for some time. Last May, when Nasser was feuding with West Ger many over Israel, all three re fused to follow the Egyptia president's lead and switch recognition from Bonn to Communist East Germany. Said Tunisian Pres. Habib Bourgiba: "These gentlemen in the Middle East (Nasser et al) have formed a habit of considering themselevs as tutors of the Arabs. They think they can uproot all regimes which refuse to be subjugated. But this is not the case of Tunisia, where the government is solid. If they want to join the Soviet camp, it is their business. But we will not accept their efforts to force us to work against Americans in the name of solidarity with Nasser." Recently, Bourgiba touched a raw nerve when he suggested that the Arabs compromise with Israel on the question of Palestine. "I doubt that the Arab countries will ever mobilize two or three million soldiers to throw Israel into the sea," he said, openly deriding Nasser's frequent boast. The mere suggestion of doing business with Israel brought out the street mobs in Cairo to smash windows in the Tunisian Embassy. Bourgiba was assailed as a "Zionist" and a "son of a dog." '63 Border War Morocco, a monarchy under young (36) King Hassan II, suffered its dismaying experience with Nasser and communism in the fall of 1963 during a brief border war with Ben Bella's Algeria. Hassan wound up breaking diplomatic relations with Castro, charging that Cuban freighters were carrying war materials from the Soviet Union to Algeria and that Cuban soldiers actually were manning the weapons. The king also came near breaking with Egypt and Syria over their press and radio attacks on Morocco. Libya, where the United States maintains its last big air base in Africa, has always been friendly to the West. But, as one of the poorest nations on earth, it has also been a fertile field for Communist — and pro-Nasser — agitation. Less than a decade ago, the sale of wartime scrap metal was a major source of Libyan national revenue. Then, in 1958, oil was discovered in the desert. Libya is now the seventh ranking oil producer in the world, filling li /4 million barrels a day. It expects to take in $250 million in oil royalties this year. And how friendly is Libya to the West? Recently, 75- year-old King Idris I and his queen, an austere Moslem couple not given to entertainment, went on a picnic in the desert. Their guests: U.S. Ambassador D. Allen Lightner Jr. and his wife. Expect State Corn Harvest Will Be 1,592,000 Acres WASHINGTON — iJP) — Wisconsin will have 1,592,000 acres of com for harvest this year, the Agriculture Department has predicted.

Late potatoes — 23,500 acres, 170 hundredweight, 3,200 Shiny Cars- Buf All Keyless ST. LOUIS, Mo. —UP)— St. Louis auto dealer Bill James has about $600,000 worth of new cars on his lot, but no keys to their ignitions of their trunks. The keys to the 200 factory-new Chevrolets were recently discovered missing. James doesn't know how the theft occurred. His lot is protected by two watchdogs and a barbed-wire topped fence. The dealer said the locks on the cars would have to be changed so the cars can be driven, so floor mats stored in the trunks can be installed before delivery and so the thieves cannot steal the cars or spare tires from their trunks. 995,000 hundredweight. In a separate tobacco forecast, the department predicted that southern Wisconsin Type 54 cigar binder production would reach 9,065.000 pounds. Last year's production was 8, 694,000 pounds. Type 55 northern Wisconsin binder production was estimated at 11.390,000 pounds, compared with 11,151,000 pounds in 1964. 4fh's Over Now So off to Jail CINCINNATI, Ohio —i/P) — Asked why he didn't appear July 1 to answer charges of driving without a license and using an expired license plate tag, Alvin Silmond, 27, replied: "Well, I knew I would go to jail, and I didn't want to miss the Fourth of July." The judge then sentenced him to five days in jail and fined him $70.

Cairo Woman Sets Her Child, Self Afire CAIRO —iJP)— A 39-year- old mother set fire to herself and her 4-year-(rfd son Saturday and left a note saying she wanted to end her life because she was suffering from polio. Police who found the bodies reported the note said she was taking the child too because "he would suffer in life without me." Big Italian Liner Begins 1st Voyage GENOA, Italy— (yW— Italy's newest transatlantic passenger liner, the sleek 46,000-ton Raffaello, left this north Italian port Saturday on an inaugural Mediterranean cruise with 1,200 passengers aboard. She will return to Genoa July 17 and leave on her first Atlantic crossing to New York, July 25. Kitty is shown enjoying tlie efforts of 11-year-old Ginger Henderson. -AP wirephoto Food on End of Long Pole Feeds Stubborn Cat in Tree HAMPTON, Ga. — (iW— A woman and her three children stand beneath a spreading oak tree in their front yard each day, probing the branches with a long cane pole. This unusual method has been used for two weeks to feed a small grey-striped and green-eyed cat which climbed the tree three weeks ago. "We kept thinking she would come down when we first heard her. Every morn ing we'd think she would be gone," Mrs. J. L. Henderson said. The Hendersons tried coaxing and even propped a tall ladder against a tree, but as soon as anyone came within reach the cat retreated to the thin upper branches. When the cat appeared to be weakening and still showed no sign of returning to earth, the three Henderson children, Jim, 13, Ginger, 11, and Betty Ann, 6, began taking turns passing food to the cat. The diet for the tree-bound cat has consisted of such items as bread, meatloaf, chicken skins, and paper cups of milk and water—all hoisted into the branches with a fishing pole. The cat grips the food firm­ ly and carries it to a broad limb further up the tree and returns for more when that is finished. "A friend in Atlanta suggested we call the fire department to get her down, but Hampton's Fire Department is volunteer," Mrs. Henderson said. She said there is no humane society in this small town 25 miles south of Atlanta. While the Hendersons seek some means (rf luring the cat from her leafy perch, the sleek, well-fed and apparently contented animal continues to evade her would-be rescuers. N. Mexico Area Has 15th Day of 100-Pius CARLSBAD, N. M.—iJP)— The Carlsbad Caverns National Park advertises that the temperature inside year- round is 58 degrees.
