Decatur, Illinois, Wednesday, January 10, 1962. DECATUR HERALD War Decision By Sukarno Due in 10 Days Jakarta, Indonesia, Jan. 9 (AP) The question of war or peace with the Netherlands over Dutch New Guinea will be decided by President Sukarno "within a week or 10 days," Indonesia's foreign minister said today. But in the meantime, government sources said, Indonesia would not object if U. N. Acting Secretary - General U Thant moved to get negotiations started and sat in on the talks or designated Thailand and the Philippines to participate. Sukarno's delay in reaching a decision on war or peace was made known as U. S. Ambassador Howard P. Jones called on him in an apparent effort to calm down the belligerent tone sounded by the Indonesian president on a four-day speechmaking tour of the Celebes. Jones accompanied Sukarno on the tour, during which a grenade was tossed at the presidential motorcade Sunday. Sukarno said "Dutch henehmen" were behind this fourth attempt on his life in four years. He escaped injury, but four persons were reported killed and 27 injured. Foreign Minister Subandrio told reporters after a meeting of the national defense council that "within one week or 10 days we will have arrived at a conclusion, and will have the certainty whether steps in the diplomatic field with the Dutch can be of help in solving the West Irian (New Guinea) issue." Since independence in 1949, the Indonesians have been contending that Dutch New Guinea should be turned over to them. The Netherlands contends the territory is not properly part of Indonesia and that the native Papuans are not Indonesians. , Stravinsky to Be Kennedy Guest At White House (c) 1962 New York Times News Service Washington, Jan. 9 President and Mrs. Kennedy will have a small private dinner on Jan. 18 for Igor Stravinsky, the composer. :- Stravinsky will be in town to conduct three performances of his opera, Oedipus Rex.
