turned empty-handed. The U.S.

There is every indication now
that the army is running the In-
donesian show, with no one man
holding complete power, although
much authority seems to be in the
hands of Maj. Gen. Suharto. Dis-
patches from Jakarta point to a
combination of generals-a junta
-with men like Suharto and Ab-
dul Haris Nasution, the armed
forces chief, at its head.
Loss of power by Sukarno seems
to have been confirmed in the
latest developments. A government
official pictured him as consid-
ering plans to establish a new
Communist party leaning away
from Red China. But the army
still permitted mobs to sack Com-
munist installations, and army of-
ficials 'have told correspondents
that any "new-style" Communist
party also should be crushed.
Young demonstrators stoned

About 2000 strong, the mob
smashed windows, seized docu-
ments and broke furniture in the
Communist youth hall only 100
yards from Sukarno's palace. The
hall has been a traditional gath-
ering place for anti-Western street.
As in other such raids since
Moslem youths burned the head-
quarters of the Indonesian Com-
munist party-PKI-here last Fri-
day, the demonstrators shouted,
for destruction of the party and
the death .of its fugitive leader,
D. N. Aidit. -
"Hang Aidit!" they cried.
"Crush the PKI!"
They made a bonfire of the doc-
uments and broken furniture.
Troops nearby watched without
interfering. Palace guards moved
in with fixed bayonets and bioke
it up when it seemed the demon-
strators might get out of hand.
Sukarno, who has played the
Communists against the army to
balance political forces in Indo-
nesia, had excused the Conimu-
nists in the Sept. 30 attempted
coup. Yet the army announced
that It had his "tacit" approval
for its anti-Communist campaign.
