NationalConference of Catholic
Crisis Meetings
Eisenhower delivered his address
after holding two confidential
meetings on the East-West United
Nations crisis-with India's Prime
Minister Nehru and President
Gamal Abdel Nasser of the United
Arab Republic.
"Knowing that peace and free-
dom are weakened if not shared,
we help other nations which, like
ourselves, uphold the dignity of
men and maintain their liberty,"
he said.
"America, if true to herself, will
never be tempted to abandon her
noble goals. A materialistic Amer-
ica -- bereft of spiritual purpose
- could be nothing more than a
rudderless ship of state.
Observes Dangers
Looking at the world's problems,
the President said that at present
the dangers seem "most violent
in surface turmoil, most intense
in inner passion and most titanic
in destructive potential."
Eisenhower avoided any direct
mention of Soviet Premier Nikita
Khrushchev's demand that the
UN be drastically revamped in line

candidates as ignorant and poli-
tically brainless. He also threat-.
ened to try pushing the United
States-by legal means-out of
its Guantanamo Bay Naval Base.
Castro's bitter attack on the
United States came at a moment'
when President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower,' playing a leading role in
a Western counter - offensive
against Soviet demands to shake
up the UN's structure. was ap-
pealing for "calm voices" in the
rising diplomatic crisis.
The bearded revolutionary's ad-!
dress at one point brought a re-
buke from Assembly President
Frederick H. Boland of Ireland
for Castro's comments on the
United States election compaign.
But Soviet Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev at several points led
bursts of applause from the Com-
munist bloc and Cuban delegates
for Castro's remarks.
Supports Communists
Castro's speech, which also of-
fered support to the Russians in
their attacks on UN Secretary
General Dag Hammarskold, cap-
ped a day which brought these
developments insideandhoutside
the UN General Assembly's his-r
toric 15th session:
1. The West mounted a vigor-t
ous counter - offensive againstr
Khrushchev,accusing him ofgiv-
ing lip service to the UN whilec
deliberately trying to destroy it.
2. Secretary General Hammarsk-
jold, main target of Khrushchev'st
attacks, made an unexpected ap-
pearance on the Assembly stages
and characterized the Soviet cam-r
paign against his office as an as-t
sault on the whole institution. TheE
Communist bloc delegates thump- t
ed their desks with their fists,'
laughing uproariously, w h e nc
Hammarskjold finished, in what:
Khrushchev later called a gesture
of "protest." Khrushchev, smart-
ing from a diplomatic defeat in:-
the Congo, wants Hammarskold's
job abolished and a three-man
executive-with veto powers for:
each-in its place.
Khrushchev has said there can
be no disarmament agreement-
and that the cold war will deep-
en-unless his ideas about rip-
ping up the secretariat structure
of the UN are considered.
Long Speech
Castro took the UN stage in
the afternoon, promised to try
to be "brief," and went on for
hours with a long diatribe against
the United States. At one point,
the Cuban leader told the dele-
gates he "would welcome a revo-
lution (in other Latin American
countries) which would force the
American monopolists to give up
their ill-gotten gains."
Castro then launched into an
attack on the United States for
its retention of its naval base at
Guantanamo Bay, at the eastern
tip of Cuba. The United States
maintains the 70-million-dollar
installations there under treaty
and lease arrangements made
with previous Cuban governments.

Lao Fort
flit Anew
By Rebels
VIENTIANE, Laos ) - Pro-
Communist Pathet Lao guerrillas
last night stepped up their drive
againstthe government strong-
hold of Sam Neua in northern
Laos and massed additional forces
in adjoining Phong Saly province.
Lt. Col. Kong Vong Narath
Sam Neua army commander, told
reporters who paid a flying visit
to his post that the situation is
He said one Pathet Lao unit
captured a hilltop overlooking
Sam Neua's airstrip today while
scattered guerrilla forces moved
within two miles of the city.
Kong said, however, he believes
the main Pathet Lao force still
is about 10 miles from the city.
The army chief reported he has
only one week of supplies left.
He turned down offers of rein-
forcements and ammunition from
the neutralist government of Pre-
mier Souvanna Phouma in Vien-
Kong apparently has received
no additional supplies recently
from Gen. Phoumi Nosavan, lead-
er of pro-western rebel forces
seeking to overthrow Souvanna.
The Pathet Lao, taking advan-
tage of civil war between Souvan-
na and Phoumi, are reported to
have deployed 500 troops in Phong
Saly province for a possible new
attack. Western sources said they
may have come from across the
border in Communist North Viet-
Western diplomats fear the
main danger to Laos now is that
the Pathet Lao will capitalize on
the Souvanna-Phoumi split to
launch a bold sweep southward.

Patrice Lumumba's supporters
kidnaped two of Col. Joseph Mo-
butu's government commissioners
yesterday, reputedly in full view
of a UN Ghana troop detachment,
then drove them out of town and
beat them severely.
Infuriated, Mobutu again de-
manded-this time at .a tense,
three-hour meeting of the UN
high command-that the Ghana
brigade be withdrawn immedi-
ately from the Congo.
The 29 year old strongman also
called for withdrawal of Guinea
troops, charging both Guinea and
Ghana favor Communist-backed

Mobutu first voiced these de-
mands last week, charging that
the two African nations were
meddling in the Congo's internal
affairs. Together their troops con-
stitute almost 20 per cent of the
16,400-man UN force. The Brit-
ish-officered Ghana brigade to-
tals 2,291 men; the Guinea bat-
talion 749.
It appeared unlikely the UN
staff, headed by Ambassador Ra-
