Warn Algeria Crucial Period Is Approaching ALGIERS — (JP) The governors of all 13 adminis- with savage mob scenes and lynchings of Moslems after trative areas in Algeria havelMosIem dagger and pistol at warned headquarters a crucial and perhaps disastrous period is approaching, government sources said Saturday. The warnings came to Delegate-General Jean Morin as housewives rushed food stores to stock supplies against the possibility of prolonged turmoil or a cutoff from France. Some local governors requested more troops be rushed to cities where Europeans and Moslems were reported ready for a showdown fight, the informants said. About 25,000 troops have already been massed in Algiers and 10,000 in Oran, the two most explosive areas, with large concentrations of organized European settlers. Empty Shelves In both cities, housewives emptied shelves of food stores following orders of the European secret army organization to lay up a two-month supply. Army officers said they are tolerating the buying in case the population has to live through an armed uprising and a countrywide economic paralysis. In Oran, about 2,000 schoolteachers went on strike to back a request for more protection around the schools, especially near Moslem neighborhoods. Shopkeepers followed suit shortly afterward. Tension has been building up in Oran — Algeria's second city — for three weeks, boiling over occasionally tacks on Europeans. Victims of the Moslem attacks have ranged from a pregnant woman to a 76-year-old man. Step Up Campaign In both cities the rightist secret army — which opposes Pres. Charles de Gaulle's Algerian policies — has stepped up its campaign of tracts against a "sellout" to Moslem rebels. In Oran, the secret army appealed to security forces outside army control to refrain from fighting a civil war. In Algiers, tracts called for a boycott of newspapers from France, and advised Paris newsmen to leave. Two French newsmen in Algiers have not left their hotel rooms for two days, fearing bullets of rightwing terrorists. Few strangers dared enter (Turn to Page 2, Col.

Gloria Jean called it the "best birthday present anybody could have given me." She spent about 30 minutes in the sky. Her father, Russell, and mother, Katherine, are both pilots and did the teaching.

Lewis that has organ music in its mess hall. It's supplied by a member of the Burlington outfit —Battery A of the 2d Howitzer Battalion, 126th Artillery.

At Ft. Lewis he found it difficult to obtain access to the few organs on the post at the unpredictable times he had free to practice. Salesman Surprised So. during the Christmas holiday he rented a small spinet-type organ in Tacoma. The request took the salesman by surprise, Deegan said. They told me they never had installed an organ in a barracks or a mess hall. He plans to rent the organ indefinitely, probably during the entire training period. He furnishes music during weekend and said if he finds time he would like to play during the week day supper hour. How do the men like it? "It's great," said one. "After all, how many soldiers can write home that they have dinner music with their chow?'^ Santo Domingo Says Attempted Coup Smashed SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — i/P) — The armed forces Saturday claimed to have smashed a plot by Navy officers to overthrow the ruling State Council and install a pro-Trujillo regime. A brief communique gave no details of the reported plot against the provisional council, which took office New Year's Day. It was created to clear the way for general elections and a new government for this nation after 30 years of Trujillo dictatorship. The Navy chief of staff. Rear Adm. Enrique Valdez Vidaurre, told reporters, authorities had arrested four officers and five enlisted men. He declined to identify them. Denounce Plot Political opposition sources immediately denounced the reported plot as a sham. They charged it was a maneuver by the armed forces chief, Gen. Pedro Rodriguez Echa varria, to keep himself and Pres. JoaqUin Balaguer in power. Balaguer himself saifl the plot was of no real importance. He told reporters it "can be considered as an isolated episode in the campaign against the armed forces.": He said the campaign was led by Communist i n f i 11 r ators hoping to eliminate the military establishment. The armed forces communi­ que said a group of Navy officers planned to overthrow the government and install a regime "favorable to the Trujillos now living abroad."

The two cars in the background slammed against the center divider when one hit the other from behind. While officers aided two injured men, four other cars traveling the opposite direction became involved in rear end collisions that injured two others. (Turn to Page 2, Col. 3 WASHINGTON — (JP) — Preliminary figures indicate that the U.S. balance of payments deficit, the key to the gold-dollar problem, soared to an annual rate of about $5 billion late in 1961. This figure, for the October - December quarter, approached the peak rate of $5.7 billion recorded a year earlier, at the height of the 1960 rush by foreigners to buy American gold. It compared with a rate of $3.1 billion in the July-September quarter. The sharp and unexpected worsening of the payments situation was disclosed Saturday by informed sources who said the precise cause had not been determined. Offer Reasons Other knowledgeable sources offered several possible explanations. In the main, they suggested the deterioration may have been a temporary development rather than an alarming portent of future difficulties. Among the possible explanations cited were a rebuilding of sterling balances by American firms in Britain, Allege Bribes Offered to U.S. Employes WASHINGTON -- (/P) — The Justice Department has disclosed it has information indicating bribes haVe been the transfer of corporate bal-^tween the amount of money offered to government em- ances to New York branchesiwhich Americans spend, lend, pjoyes and that the evidence of Canadian banks, and ef-|invest and give away abroadjwill be presented soon to a forts by some foreign banks and the lesser amount re-jGrand Jury.

Shortly afterward the coun- c i 1 spokesman announced that an agreement was reached and the ministers went back into plenary session, presumably to consider formal passage into the second stage of integration. 2 Boys Burn Church to 'Benefit Community' OZARK. Ark. — (JP)—lwo 14-year-old boys were charged Saturday after officers said they admitted burning down a church because they thought it "would be a benefit to the community." The White Oak Presbyterian Church burned Friday night. Sheriff Bob Pritchard said he and other officers followed tracks in the snow to the home of one of the boys early Saturday. Both at- teni^d the church. ' LEOPOLDVILLE, The Congo — (JP) — Fighting erupted in Stanleyville Saturday between the Congo Army and the forces of leftist Antoine iGizenRa. A U.N. spokesman said 17 soldiers were killed in the outbreak — eight on Gizen- ga's side, six on the side of Gen. Victor Lundula, the gov- lernment commander in the ^Oriental Province capital, _and three more Gizcnga men, 'apparently when they attempted to desert to Lun­ dula. The figliting brought orders from the Congo govern- iment that apparently set the 'stage for a military showdown with defiant Deputy Premier Gizenga. Premier Cyrillo Adoula's cabinet in Leopoldvilie ordered Lundula to "take all necessary steps to restore order" after Gizenga was said to have attempted to leave Stanleyville earlier in the day.

Inspire Concern An increased deficit gives, they can use to buy U.S. gold. Heavy gold sales, as in 1960, inevitably inspire concern that the dollar might be devalued in order to protect the remaining U.S. gold reserve, which still totals $16.8 billion. For nearly 30 years, the United States has maintained the price of gold at $35 an ounce. Were the dollar devalued — and President Kennedy this week restated his rejection of the idea — it would take more dollars to buy an ounce of gold. case.
