World Dangerous

And, he added, the campaign

Just a century ago, Nixon said,

"The question now," he said,

MOSCOW, (JP)-Soviet officials
yesterday ordered immediate ex-
pulsion of three Americans, a
Briton and a West German arrest-
ed in an incident involving dis-
tribution to Russians of the Unit-
ed States State Department mag-
azine Amerika.
It was the second incident of
its kind in less than a week. The
first, also on distribution of Amer-
ika, involved six young Americans,
five of whom had been detained
temporarily. The first group, how-
ever, was not expelled.
The three Americans and their
companions were questioned about
four hours. Soviet police ordered
them to sign statements, but the
youths said they refused to sign
anything in a language they
could not understand.
Officials Reluctant
Western and Soviet officials
were reluctant to discuss the in-
cident. Informed sources said the

Dag Hammarskjold arrived in the Congo yesterday for a personal
look at UN efforts to bring order to that new African nation.
Congo Premier Patrice Lumumba meanwhile warned that unless
Belgian troops leave his country "there may be massive massacre."
Lumumba met newsmen in Washington, where he has won a
promise of United States aid. He told a news conference the situation
in his country could lead to another world war. He said he has been
under renewed pressure to seek?

Hyde Park' Discusses Disarmament
A crowd of University faculty members, employees, students, and
other townspeople on their lunch hour gathered at an impromptu
Hyde Park on the Diag. yesterday noon.
The group, which at one point included about 125 people, dis-
cussed disarmament and the arms race.
Rev. Curtis Crawford, a Unitarian minister and a professor of
philosophy at New York University, was the principal speaker. He said
that if man does not stop war, war will stop the evolution of mankind.
Rev. Crawford and two others are touring 11 states this summer
on behalf of the 1960 Campaign for Disarmament under sponsorship
of church, civic and professional organizations, he said.
Asked which political platform came closest to a "sane nuclear
