They go off to war firm in the

and bullets.
In a way it does, for supersti-
tious belief in their enemy's im-
munity has struck terror into the
Congolese army and the sight of
a rebel often is enough to put
troops to flight.
In private, rebel leader Gaston
Soumialot admits there is no
yDawa". "It is only the holy anger
of the people," he declares.
But it has helped rebel guerrilla
fighters overrun some 70,000
square miles of the eastern Congo

and threaten the new regime of
Congo Premier Moise Tshombe.
The rebel hordes have been
checked in the south at Baudoin-
ville and in the west at the im-
portant rail junction of Kaballo
on the Lualaba River. But they
have captured Kindu, capital of
Maneima Province, in the north
and are pushing slowly toward
Stanleyville, former capital of
Antoine Gizenga's old breakaway
regime and a center of Lumumbist
High Goals
Soumialot, an ex-grocer who
sometimes dons the camouflage
uniform of a paratrooper, says his
forces will press on until they
have occupied not only Stanley-
ville but Kamina and Elisabeth-
ville also.
Soumialot has set up a provi-
sional government to rule the
"liberated" territories but his own

authority is respected little be-'
yond Albertville.
In town he can do little to con-
trol his troops who roam the
streets flashing their weapons and
demanding protection money
from Asian, European and Afri-
can shopkeepers.
When insurgents took over Al-
bertville June 18 they confiscated
all trucks and autos. Now the
roads are littered with broken-
down vehicles, driven to collapse
by primitive tribesmen with only
vague ideas that cars need oil and
water. One young rebel with more
knowledge than most took pains
to keep his engine filled with oil.
But he poured it in the radiator.

About 120 Europeans, mostly
Belgian, remain in Albertville.
They keep water and power serv-

owned textile plant still is oper-

Soumialot's army is almost
completely undisciplined and un-
trained. It has been living off the
land. But as their advance takes
them further and further away
from the seat of the revolt, rebel
forces are becoming thinner on
the ground.
Soumialot already has suggest-
ed a parley, with Tshombe in Bu-
jumbura, capital of neighboring
Burundi. If Tshombe refuses,
Soumialot probably will stake all
on the capture of Stanleyville.

By The Associated Press
7 spacecraft, benefitting f r o m
nearperfect rocket marksmanship,
raced last night on a collision
course with the moon.
The' lunar photographic expe-
dition had two major goals before
its intended crash-landing on the
moon at 7:45 a.m. Friday morn-
-To transmit to earth more
than 4000 closeup pictures of areas
where American astronauts may
explore five years from now;
-To end six years of frustra-
tion during which the United
States has tried and failed with
12 moon shots.
Good Lift-Off
The camera-laden spacecraft
blazed into the sky from Cape
Kennedy at 10:50 a.m. and suc-
cessfully cleared all early hurdles
on its planned 69-hour, 228,522
mile space voyage.
At 5 p.m., the insect-shaped ve-
hicle was 46,600 miles from earth,
traveling 6,425 miles an hour.

All systems aboard the moon-
bound craft were working well.
But despite the good beginning,
there was an attitude of caution
at Cape Kennedy. Everyone re-
membered the perfect flight flown
by Ranger 6 last January, only to
have the cameras fail in the final
minutes before it crash landed
just 20 minutes from its target
in the Sea of Tranquility.
Prof. William Pickering, direc-
tor of the Jet Propulsion Labora-
tory of Pasadena, Calif., said he is
hopeful of complete success. But
he hedged on making a prediction
and said Ranger 7 had a 50-50
chance of doing everything plan-
ned for it. He had given Ranger 6
a 25 per cent chance of success.
So accurate was the Atlas-
Agena booster rocket that the Na-

tional Aeronautics and Space Ad-
ministration announced s e v e n
hours after launching 'that on its
present path, Ranger 7 would
sweep around the leading, or left,
edge and impact on the dark side
of the moon that always is hidden
from earth's view.
But scientists want to hit the
visible, lighted side for photo-
graphic purposes and because this
is the face on which U.S. space-
men are to trod late in this decade.
So- they planned to jockey
Ranger 7 toward the intended
target on the front side during a
c r u c i a I midcourse maneuver
scheduled about 3:30 a.m. this
morning. At that time a radio
signal was to be sent from the
ground to ignite a small steering
motor aboard the craft.

ig Discusses Federal
ln for Harlem Unrest

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Mayor Robert F. Wagner and the Rev. Martin
Luther King Jr. discussed yesterday possible increased federal help
in city programs as a means of solving racial strife and rioting.
The meeting between the Mayor and King, leader of the South-
ern Christian Leadership Conference and advocate of non-violence,
was their second in less than 24 hours.
A number of city officials and- civil rights leaders attended the
session in Grance Mansion, the mayor's official residence.
Aides of the mayor held telephone conversations with aides
of President Lyndon B. Johnson and various federal agency officials
"in a "joint effort by all partici-
pants to increase federal partici-
pation" in various programs.
Mobilization for youth, and job
training programs for youth were
among the programs discussed.

Of Invasion
Premier Emphasizes
His Nation To Decide;
Washington Agrees
SAIGON (1P) - Nguyen Khanh,
strong-man premier of South Viet
Nam, indicated yesterday that his
government would feel free to
strike without United States help
if it were to decide to stage what
he called "a counterattack, a de-
fensive action," and the U.S. were
to hold back.
When asked whether South Viet
Nam had the military capability
to move against her northern
neighbor, Khanh would not com-
mit himself. He insisted however,
that whatever moves his country
would make, it would make inde-
pendent of U.S. urgings.
Asked about any differences in
tactics, Khanh said there are al-
ways differences. He explained:
"If you presented the same prob-
lem to 30 tacticians, you would get
30 answers."
No Indication
In Washington, a State De-
partment spokesman agreed the
South Viet Nam government
makes its own decisions, but said
there is no indication Khanh in-
tends to attack North Viet Nam.
The spokesman replied to ques-
tions at a news conference. He
recalled President Lyndon B.
Johnson's statement last week
that the U.S. does not seek a
wider war and he noted Khanh's
declaration that there are no dif-
ferences on the objective.
No extension of the Americans'
limited combat role was envi-

Monday for a big increase in
American military manpower and

Wulff Defines Objectives
Of Humanist Psychology
Psychologists can be divided into three groups.
First, there are the psychoanalysts who like people, but don't
trust them; second, the behaviorists, who don't like people, or only
like bits and pieces of them; and third, the humanists, who like,
trust, and value people but don't like the other two kinds of psycholo-

Goldwater To
Ask Johnson
For Debates
Goldwater (R-Ariz) said yester-
day he wants to meet President
Lyndon B. Johnson in televised
debates during their campaign for
the White House.
Rep. Jack Westland (R-Wash)
said the Republican presidential
nominee issued his challenge to
the President during a closed-
door meeting with more than 70
GOP members of the House.
Westland quoted Goldwater as
saying he is "ready, willing and
able" to meet Johnson in televi-
sion debates.
Johnson has declined to be pin-
ned down on the question, saying
at a news conference only last
Friday "we will cross that bridge
when we get to it.'
The debate question came up
in connection with pending legis-
lation that would suspend equal
broadcast time requirements to
pave the way for a face-to-face
television meeting between the
two presidential contenders - as
was done in 1960.



'U' Players To Open in Unique Show

Once upon a time there was a man who liked to write.
This man's name was James Thurber, and he wrote all sorts of
stories and poems and sketches and other humorous things.
But it seems that Thurber one day decided that this scope of the
printed page unduly limited his art, so he turned from such
successes as "Thurber Ark" and "The Wonderful O" to un-
explored territory (for him).
Thurber became a playwright.
But unlike other playwrights on the scene, Thurber was unable
to see the necessity of uroducing any new material simply to

pomattox," "If Washington had Drowned in the Delaware," and
other history corrupters.
Prof. Katter, who directed the highly successful version of "My
Fair Lady" in June, has made every effort to duplicate the charm of
the original Broadway performance, and as a result, stage manager
William Lebzelter, Grad, will spend much time directing the activities
of three turntables, nearly unheard of in touring and amateur pro-
ductions, which will revolve the various sets (and there are a lot of
them) on and off before the audience's very eyes.
"A Thurber Carnival," as one might have guessed, is not a play
or even a musical. It is instead a series of delightful vignettes, per-
