duce to market. Some roads are
now in such bad condition that
a brand new truck is converted
into junk after 6000 miles.
Food shortages in town are com-
mon as a result. The Congo, which
exported food before independence,
must now rely on gifts of Ameri-
can surplus foodstuffs to feed its
hungry people.
Spurring inflation is a govern-
ment deficit which economic ex-
perts think will top 17 billion
Congo francs (about $260 million)
this year, although the govern-
ment's 1963 budget predicts a
much smaller gap between reve-
nue and spending. More than 80
per cent of ,this money goes in
salaries to about 150,000 state em-
ployes, probably the only ones to
have benefited by independence.
Decisive Action
The government has repeatedly
promised decisive action, but lack
of decisiveness has been the main
criticism leveled at Premier Cyr-
ille Adoula. The 41-year-old for-
mer labor leader is hard-working
and conscientious, but critics
charge him with shrinking too
often from a hard line when the
chips are down. Yet only extreme
nationalists and Communists here
believe any one else could have
done a better job over the last two
According to most, the real pow-
er behind Adoula lies in the hands
of the "Binza Group," a kitchen
cabinet consisting of Gen. Mobu-
tu, Justice Minister Justin Bombo-
ko, Security Police Chief Victor
Nendaka and a handful of senior
civil servants. These men, hated
and feared by other politicos, col-
laborate closely with the premier.
They are considered the only men
with the knowhow, unity of pur-
pose and ruthlessness needed to
keep heads up in the quicksands
of Congolese politics.
Encouraging Politics
There are encouraging signs:
Army discipline has been im-
proving. Mobutu has been waging
a ceaseless propaganda campaign
against politics in the ranks.
The Congo has gone a long way
toward solving its racial problem.
Anti-white hatred was a prime
element in the 1960 crisis. Today

Congolese and whites eat together
at the same tables in restaurants
and swim in the same public pools.fr
The two communities have little
in common but live together in
peace. This, perhaps, is the Congo's'
best success story, coming from the "
grass roots and without govern-
ment action.
Economic Life
On the economic front, legal '
exports are expected to hit 20 bil-
lion francs (just over $300 mil-
lion) compared to only seven bil-
lion francs (just over $100 million)
last year. But this is almost en-
tirely due to the inclusion of Ka-
tanga's copper exports since Unit-
ed Nations soldiers finally dashed

Congo is immensely rich and ex-

Business circles are pessimistic,

"If a referendum was held to-

parliamentary speech.

Food Lack
There is food in the countryside,
but disorder, misgovernment and
the lack of goods to buy in village
stores has reduced small farmers
to growing just enough for their
own needs. Cash crops have with-
