Lumumba Quiets
Congo Troop Riots
African Soldiers Demonstrate
Against White Belgian Officers
LEOPOLDVYLER (R)-Premier Patrice Lumumba flew last night
to the scene of a mutiny by Negro troops in Thysville after calming
demonstrations by other troops against white Belgian officers in this
Acting swiftly to meet the first crisis of this fledgling African
nation, Lumumba sought to free officers held prisoners by Negro
soldiers at Thysville, 75 miles southwest of Leopoldville.
' Tanks were reported on their way to Thysville, where the mutiny
erupted Tuesday night, Few details of the situation there reached
the capital.
The situation in the capital was quiet but tense after a dem-
onstration by 200 Negro troops in front of the Parliament building.

. ... late politician

Bevan Dies
LONDON (A) - Aneurin Bevan,
silver - tongued Welsh politician,
died yesterday at 62 years old,
his lifelong ambition to become
Prime Minister unfulfilled.
The fiery deputy leader of the
British Labor Party and outstand-
ing figure of the European socialist
movement had been ill for six
months. Friends said he had stom-
ach cancer.
Tributes to Bevan poured in
from fellow socialists at home and
abroad and - as is the British
way - from his old political foes
in the Conservative Party.
Prime Minister Macmillan said:
"He was a great and courageous
fighter for what lKe believed to be
right and was respected- by mem-
bers of all parties.".
As a youngster in the depressed
Welsh coal mines, Bevan set his
sights on the British premiership,
for him the pinnacle of political
His aim was a social revolution
to end forever the injustice and
poverty he saw around him in his
He was an influential union
leader in his 20's, member of Par-
liament at 30, an international
name in politics before he was 40.
Through most of his career Bev-
an was the rebel spokesman of
labor's left wing. His biting tongue
and advocacy of leftist policies
broughthhim into frequent con-
fiet with his own party leadership.
Bevan will be remembered as
the architect of Britain's socialized
health service.
He proved himself an able ad-
ministrator in four years at the
Health Ministry.
The health service, a model for
many countries, was brought in
over organized opposition of physi-
cians. Later they accepted it and
it remains virtually unchanged
from Bevan's original plan.
Riot in Rome
ROME (- - Wild fighting set
off mainly by Communists swirled
through the streets of Rome last
night and rival Red and Fascist
factions in Parliament charged
each other in two pitched battles.
The skirmishes in Parliament
went on until well after midnight,
ending only when the Chamber of
Deputies adjourned. Four lawmak-
ers required medical treatment.
Six ushers were injured, two seri-

roughed up their white command-
ed, Gen. Emile Janssens, and an-
other white official in a noisy
demonstration of several hours.
One report said the troops were
promised that Janssens and his
entire white officers' corps even-
tually will be replaced. There are
no Negro commissioned officers
now in the army-known as the
Force Publique-in this country
which became independent of
Belgian rule only July 1.

Minister blamed for the demon-
The 25,000 troops of the Force

Lumumba has for maintaining
peace and order in the Congo.
Trained by white officers, the
Force Publique is one of the
strongest military forces in Cen-
tral Africa. It has been invalu-
able to the Belgians in putting
down intertribal fighting that has
plagued the Congo for years.
The demonstrators marched
without arms from the Leopold II
barracks to the Parliament build-
ing. They tried to get inside but
were stopped.
En Route
En route they met Janssens in
his car. The car was halted and
his pistol snatched away. The
soldiers whacked him once or
twice with their belts.
In a speech at the barracks be-
fore the march, Lumumba prom-
ised the troops he would take steps
to meet their grievances.
The troops were told that all
ranks were promoted as of July
1. That made the top Congolese
ranking a warrant officer. Later
promotions will be on merit.
The mayor of Leopoldville ap-
pealed for calm. Gatherings of
more than five persons at stra-
tegic points such as the airport
were banned.

VIENNA IP) - Soviet Premier
Nikita Khrushchev declared yes-
terday use of rocket bases in Italy
against Communist countries
"would presuppose a violation of
Austrian neutrality."
He thus implied in a speech at
Klagenfurt that Russia would feel
free to send troops into this neu-
tral country in event of war.
He advised the Austrians to tell
the Italians "not to play with fire."
Since his arrival on a state visit
last Thursday, Khrushchev has
annoyed the Austrians by repeated
attacks on President Dwight D.
Eisenhower and West German
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer.
In Salzburg on Monday he
charged that elements in West
Germany stillawant to incorporate
Austria in a greater German
Reich. He added that Russia "will
not remain idle if Austrian neu-
trality is violated."
Khrushchev cut short the re-
mainder of his tour of the scenic
Austrian provinces and headed
back for Vienna.
This satisfied his Austrian hosts.

sense only, as are Switzerland and

To Face
Cost Rise
The problems higher education
in the United States faces with
the increasing size and diversity of
the college population were con-
sidered by a panel of experts last
night in a public discussion of
"The Future of American Higher
The panel, a part of the summer
lecture and discussion series on
the "Social Implications of Eco-
nomic Change," included William
W. Whitehouse, president of Al-
bion College, Prof. David French,
dean of the University Flint Col-
lege, and Prof. E. Lowell Kelly,
chairman of the University psy-
chology department.
Prof. French attributed the in-
creasing percentage of college
students in the college-age popu-
lation to the higher standard of
living, the population rise, and to
the demands for higher technical
training, among others.
Shorter Week?
Whitehouse added that, in con-
nection with growing automation,
a large segment of industry will
probably soon have a four-day
work week. The University, unlike
certain industries, cannot transfer
the increase in overhead involved
in a shorter work week to the price
of the product, he said.
Prof. Kelly said studints and
their families should be made
aware of the significant differ-
ences between the actual cost of
education and what they pay;
adding that such an awareness
might result in a feeling of socie-
tal responsibility among graduates.
Suggests Added Change
"Perhaps the institution should
charge the actual cost of a stu-
dent's education - about $1500-
$2000-and give "open," rather
than "hidden" scholarships in
larger amounts to those unable
to afford the expense," he sug-
Recommends Variety
Whitehouse recommended that
the variety of student interests be
met by strengthening specified
training schools such as technical
institutes, citing the British ap-
prenticeship system as a successful
way of providing the proper op-
portunity for the non-intellectual
student to become proficient in
some other area.
He also stressed a need to en-
courage residential colleges in
order to keep student expenses
down, unless the government is
willing to underwrite living as well
as scholarship. expenses.
Prof, Kelly expressed a fear of
"watering down" in the educa-
tional value of degrees, brought
about by the popularity of under-
graduate and even graduate
schooling. He foresaw a conceiv-
able need for "super PhD's."

DISCUSSES GIRAUDOUX-Jean Borne, visiting instructor in the
University French department, comments critically on the style
and works of Jean Giraudoux, his countryman and playwright of

lorie Cites Metaphor
In Giraudoux 's works
S. N. Behrman's English adaptation of Jean Giraudoux's com-
edy "Amphitryon 38" deletes from the production several lengthy
passages which, it was felt, would bore American audiences who like
the action of a play to proceed unimpeeded by philosophical disser-
tations by individual characters.
Jean Borie, visiting member of the University French department,
explained, however, that these particular passages are in fact ex-
amples of the brilliant rhetoric

Delib erate Hostility
Ike Action Alters Restraint Policy,
May Cost Growers $35-$85 Million
WASHINGTON (a)-President Dwight D. Eisenhower yesteiday
ordered an end to virtually all further United States buying of sugar
from Cuba this year.
He accused the Castro regime of deliberate hostility toward the
United States.
Eisenhower's action, a switch away from the unsuccessful United
States policy of restraint toward Fidel Castro followed since the
bearded anti-American revolutionary came to power one and a hal
years ago, could cost Cuban sugar growers an estimated 35 to 88

The passages in his plays are
not long because they contain
ideas which require philosophical
development, but because Girau-

Borie added that Giraudoux's
works have a certain fixity due to
his repeated use of metaphor.
Nevertheless, Borie said, fre-
quent use of metaphor is really
nothing more than an intellectual
game. For this reason, the Sur-

Education Has Economic Importance

College is a business enterprise as well as an educational insti-
tution, President W. W. Whitehouse of Albion College said yesterday.
Speaking on "Economic Change and Higher Education as the
third lecture in a series on the Social Implications of Economic
Change, Whitehouse emphasized that the University president must
be concerned with public relations and economic factors.
"We all have had dreams and projects which have lain dormant
merely because of the lack of funds." To realize these prospects, the
University president must master finance and administration, he
Whitehouse predicted an increase in two-year terminal and
community colleges. He cited Ferris Institute as an example of a
"new kind of education" that will probably spread.
He noted the mounting costs in education for equipment because
of rapid technological growth, for scholarships, and for the needed,
increase in salary for faculty. "We are spending three billion for
education now; in 1970 we should be spending nine billion."
Whitehouse discussed several favorable trends such as donations
