Moves Right
VIENTIANE (P)-An army bat-
talion chief announced yesterday
he has cast aside any loyalty to
the neutralist government, rally-
ing instead to the pro-Western
right-wing corner in Laos' hot
political triangle. t
MaJ. Bounpheun Isixiengmay,
chief of the Third Infantry Bat-
talion at Luang Prabang, went on
the radio to say he no longer
recognizes Vientiane authority.
Luang Pratang, the royal capi-
tal of Laos, is to the north. The
rightists are centered in the south
at Savannakhet. Vientiane, where
Premier Prince Souvanna Phou-
ma heads the kingdom's neutralist
government, is located halfway
The Premier went to Luang
Prabang just Thursday for an au-
dience with the monarch.
Phouma was to stay till Sun-
day, but he returned here imme-
diately when he heard a rebellion
was to start in Luang Prabang.
The Premier has been trying to
make peace with the warring
Pathet Lao, a pro-Communist
group headed by his fugitive half-
brother Prince Souvanna Vong.
The rightists are aigned with
the West. A coup replaced their
government in August. They op-
pose any settlement that would
bring the Pathet Lao into a com-
promise government.

Unknown Fish
LONDON (A Soviet scientists
working in the Pacific havel
brought up a hitherto unknown
species of fish from a depth of
more than 4/2' miles, Moscow ra-
dio reported last night.
The fish had a colorless body
and was completely free of
scales. The absence of light at
that depth, 24,786 feet below the
surface, had influenced the struc-
ture of its eyes. They were jelly-
like and no bigger than a pin
head, the broadcast said.
It added that discovery of the
fish refuted the hypothesis that
there can be no life in the ocean
at depths greater than six kilo-
meters (19,620 feet).

Loyalists Win
Bloody Battle
For Capital
Premier s Forces
Exploit Rebel Laxity
SAIGON (M)-Forces loyal to
President Ngo Dinh Diem struck
back in Saigon yesterday and
claimed an initial victory in bloody
fighting with insurgents who top-
pled the pro-Western president 24
hours earlier.
A broadcast by Saigon Radio
assertedthe loyalists had recap-
tured key positions~ in this capi-
tal after shooting that lasted for
about 45 minutes.
"We have captured and killed
many insurgent troops who tried
to oppose us," the radio said. "We
have seized about 300 rifles and
mortars at the radio station and
promise to fight until our last
man to restore the peace and se-
cruity under the leadership of
President Ngo Dinh Diem."
Forces Rally
The broadcast claimed other
forces were rallying to Ngo's ban-
ner and hurrying back to Saigon
after hearing his radio appeals
A rebel junta headed by para-
troop Col. Nguyen Chanh Thi led
a lightning pre-dawn'coup against
Ngo Friday and claimed control
of the government after 20 to 30
persons were slain and many
They proclaimed that Ngo, wio
remained in the presidential pal-
ace, had passed the mantle of
power over to the junta, which
would form a new government "to
continue the fight against the
Communists and stop all unfavor-
able propaganda."
Would Preserve
The junta maintained it would
preserve South Viet Nam's ties
with the West, but wanted to end
a f a m i1y dictatorship an
strengthen the struggle against
Communist infiltration,
The reference was to Ngo's
strongman rule with the help of
members of his family.
But the junta maintained a
loose control over this city, not
even bothering to install the usual
curfew that usually follows a pow-
er move in the overthrow of a
Apparently, the followers of
Ngo took advantage of the easy-
going situation. They struck back
at the security guards of the cap-
ital, the military muscle that had
put the junta into power.
Loyal Forces
The city awakened to the rattle
of gunfire. By 10 a.m. the Saigon
Radio was saying that the Presi-
dent's loyal forces were in con-
trol of the station and other ma-
jor points.
The Revolutionary Committee
has set up a secret headquarters
and there was no direct word from
it other than that broadcast in
radio communiques.
The later broadcasts claiming
that forces loyal to Ngo were ral-
lying to his support urged the
people to remain calm, "be in-
telligent" and not listen to the

students who turned a peaceful

Head of USIA
Resigns Post,
Others Follow
WASHINGTON (A') - United
States information chief George
V. Allen, who figured in a cam-
paign dispute over United States
prestige abroad, yesterday led off
the exodus of Eisenhower admin-
istration officials.
President Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er, vacationing at Augusta, ac-
cepted the resignation of the 57-
year-old career diplomat who
served in key cold war posts un-
der both the Truman and Eisen-
hower administrations. t
Eisenhower, who soon will hand
the, Presidency to Democrat John
F. Kennedy, announced he had
accepted several other resigna-
tions, the first of many to come.

They object to de Gaulle's plan
to make this rebellion-torn North
African territory an "Algerian Al-
geria." Although the rioters were
formally disclaimed by the cooler-
headed front for French Algeria,
which represents the diehard Eu-
ropean settlers, they fought en-
About 50 persons-rioters, po-
lice and soldiers--staggered away
from the day's battlefields to get
patched up in aid stations.
Call Troops
The troops were called to help
cordon off an area of five square
city blocks when the rioting broke
out at sundown after an afternoon
lull. The students holed up in
two narrow streets leading off the
Rue Michelet, a main street, and
defied police tear gas bombs.
The riot sent nervous ripples
through the government in Paris,
where de Gaulle and Premier
Michel Debre conferred yesterday
morning. Tight security precau-
tions were clamped on Paris. Po-
lice were out in force. More than
1,200 persons were arrested dur-
ing the day-and released later-
for failing to "move on" at police
Security troops patrolled down-
town Paris. A police helicopter
circled overhead to forestall dem-
onstrations like those in Algiers.
Downtown Plaza
In Oran, west of Algiers, about
50,000 gathered at a downtown
plaza to shout "Algeria is French."

Riot police expertly channeled the
crowds from the main streets
without violence.
The pitched battles in Algiers
involved thousands of students,
although individual skirmishes
were usually limited to a few hun-"
dred at a time. Most appeared to
be teenagers.
Long after sundown the stu-
dent rook-throwing dwindled and
the young men, showing no fear
of arrest, walked up to the sol-
diers and police they had been
stoning and engaged them in de-
S"DeGaulle is letting us down,"
shouted one youth.
After about a half an hour of
this, the students began to strag-
gle home. None was arrested al-
though earlier during the fight-
ing four or five hadbeen hauled
off to police headquarters.

Bowles Wants
'Two Chinas'
LONDON (M-Chester Bowles,
foreign policy adviser to Presi-
dent-elect John F. Kennedy, last
night advocated a "two-China
policy" allowing for an independ-
ent Formosa and an independent
Communist China.
"But I don't think the Pei-
ping government is ready for it
now," Bowles said in an interview
filmed in the United States for
British television. "I think it will
be ready for it soon."
Bowles, often mentioned as a
possibility for Secretary of State,
said he thought the China prob-
lem had been handled "rather1
stupidly" up to now,
He said he regarded China as
possibly more dangerous to West-
ern interests than Russia.
"I think we are beginning to
understand that in the long run
we can only solve this situation
in China. through some kind of
'two-China' policy-that is an in-
dependent Formosa and an inde-
pendent China."

'It was understood these officials
were pressing the United States
line set forth in a State Depart-
ment statement here.
"With regard to the reports'of
the coup d'etat in Saigon," the
State Department said, "we sin-
cerely hope that the situation will
soon be stabilized and public order
and security restored.
"While it appears clear that the
present action is not Communist-
inspired, we are naturally con-,
cerned at any instability in a free
nation bordering on Communist-
held territory."
Declines Comment
Beyond this, press officer Wil-
liam Blair declined any comment,
saying "The situation in Veit Nam
is not clear."
The rebels at Saigon, news dis-
patches said, set up a military re-
gime for the stated purpose of
ending the rule of the Diem fam-
ily and of strengthening the Viet-
namese fight against Communist
Ngo is strongly pro-American.
State Department officials said
privately they had no reason to
believe that the new military'
group would not be pro-American.
One possibility suggested here
was that some kind of accommo-
dation might be made between this
group and Ngo.
Sen. Mike Mansfield D-Mont),
chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations Subcommittee on the
Far East, said he hoped the
troubles in Viet Nam would be
straightened out and "The merits
and capabilities of President Ngo
will continue to be recognized.'
Mansfield's statement obviously
parallels the thinking in United
States diplomatic quarters.f

Environment for Exploration


The John Jay Hopkins Laboratory for Pure and Applied Science at General Dynamics' General Atomic Division
in San Diego, California, is a modern center of research and development, where new ideas and techniques are
vigorously pursued. Here, strong engineering and development activities are matched with broad basic theoret-
ical and experimental research to create an ideal environment for productive efforts In the nuclear field.
Here, advanced work is underway on the High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR), which promises to be a
major short cut to the nation's goal of economic nuclear power. The prototype HTGR plant will be constructed
by 1963 for Philadelphia Electric Company and High Temperature Reactor Development Associates, Inc,
Here, engineers and scientists work in a creative atmosphere on other advanced programs, including the MGCR
gas-cooled reactor and closed-cycle gas turbine system for merchant ship propulsion .. . TRIGA reactors for
training, research, and isotope production, which are now being installed on five continents., small nuclear
power systems ... test reactors... nuclear power for space vehicles . . . thermoelectricity .. . controlled ther.
monuclear reactions.
Rapid expansion of these programs has led to increased engineering activity and created openings for men, pre-
ferably at the graduate level, who seek a high degree of individual responsibility coupled with unusual opportunities
to demonstrate their initiative and ability.
Nuclear Engineers, Metallurgists, Ceramists, Mathematicians - Programmers, and Experimental and Theoretical
Physicists are invited to consider opportunities now existing in varied program areas. Please contact the place-
ment office to arrange an appointment with the General Atomic representative who will be at your campus on
