Of Ghanans

LEOPOLDVILLE, The Congo ()
-Determined to maintain his
strongman role in the Congo, Col.
Joseph Mobutu yesterday order-
ed the entire' diplomatic staff of
Ghana to get out of the country
by Monday.
The United Nations command
said it could not interfere.
The chief target of Mobutu's
anger is Nathaniel Welbeck,
Ghanan charge d'affaires who
has openly acted as political ad-
viser to deposed Premier Patrice
Lumumba. Mobutu is prevented
from arresting Lumumba only by
a UN guard posted around the ex-
premier's villa.
Tribal War
The development came as the
United Nations found itself dan-
gerously enmeshed in pitiless trib-
al warfare in secessionist Katan-
ga province. There the fierce Ba-
luba tribesmen loyal to Lumumba
spread to South Katanga and the
UN was forced to throw in heavy
reinforcements.
The feud of Mobutu and his
pro-Western supporters with the
Ghana diplomats is of long stand-
ing and broke into the open early
in October.
Only Tuesday night, Mobutu's'
soldiers arrested Lovelace Men-
sah, third secretary of Ghana's
embassy. He was accused of try-
ing to take money and plans for
an invasion of Katanga to Lum-
umba.
Mobutu's ally, President Joseph
Kasavubu, had declared Welbeck
persona non grata-unacceptable
-last month. But Welbeck ap-
pealed to the UN and stayed on,
guarded in his residence and em-
bassy by Ghana troops.
Not Permitted
The UN command at that time
told Kasavubu and Mobutu it
would not permit the forcible ex-
pulsion of the Ghanaian diplo-
mats.
Now, without explanation, the
command has switched positions.
Western diplomats speculated that
it was due to Kasavubu's effec-
tive appearance at the UN Gen-
eral Assembly in New York.

NEWORLIEA'NS:
Sichools May Shut Do-ors Soon

NEW ORLEANS WP)-The New
Orleans school board said yester-
day it may not be able to keep its
schools open much longer even if
a federal court lifts the integra-
tion order that has resulted in
abandoned classrooms.
At one of the two integrated
elementary schools, three Negro'
girls sat all alone-the 467 white
students boycotted classes.3
The three-judge Federal court
took under advisement the school
board's motion to stop integra-
tion, at least temporarily, and the
State's announcement that it is,
interposing its authority between
the court and the schools.
School Board attorney Sam
Rosenberg, in an impassioned
courtroom speech, said that "from
a practical point of view, the
board is reaching a point thatN
regardless of the orders of this
court, we soon will be unable to,

operate. We are running out of
money and the banks won't give
us any.
No Money
"And rightfully so, probably-
they don't know who's running
the schools. The state government
won't give the board money and it
must meet a payroll of nearly 2
million dollars Nov. 28."

GOP T.o 'Check
Election Count
In Eight States
WASHINGTON (M -)- Republi-
can headquarters yesterday order-
ed emissaries into eight states to
determine whether there is any
possibility that recounts might
take the presidential election away
from Democrat John F. Kennedy.
An official announcement said
Republican representatives will
visit Illinois, Texas, Missouri, New
Mexico, Nevada, South Carolina,
New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Check Complaints
Lou Guylay, public relations
director for the Republican na-
tional committee, said the emis-
saries will appraise complaints of
election irregularities and check
on whether a recount of votes in
those states might swing the presi-
dency to Republican Vice-Presi-
dent Richard M. Nixon.
Guylay described. the action as
a decision to take a "close hard
look at the situation" in the eight
states to decide whether recounts
would be warranted.
Republican National Chairman
Thurston B. Morton asked a week
ago for reports from the Republi-
can organizations in 11 states. He
told party officials to look Into
"purported vote frauds," and
urged investigation and whatever
follow-up action was indicated.
No Challenge
Republican leaders in most of
the 11 states, however, do not plan
to challenge the Nov. 8 election
results.
Guylay said yesterday's decision
to send representatives to eight
of the states was made at a meet-
ing at which Republican campaign
executives checked into telegrams
and letters alleging election ir-
regularities. G u y 1 a y estimated
there were about 25,000 such com-
plaints and said many of them
suggested recounts.

lion appeared before the court to
represent dozens of officials who
had been ordered to show cause
why they shouldn't be permanent-
ly restrained from meddling with
the schools.
Gremillion moved to dismiss the
three cases in question-all orders
restraining virtually the entire
state government - because the
state no longer recognizes the
court in integration matters.
United States Attorney H. Hep-
burn Many said it was a "grave
misconception" that a state can
"put itself out of reach of federal
law."
Ultimate Challenge
"The ultimate challenge was the
war between the states." He said
"it would appear that the Civil
War had answered the question
in favor of the federal govern-
ment.
Court sources said they expected
rulings from the judges-possibly
today.
Churchill Gets
Physiotherapy
LONDON (R) - A British medi-
cal source said last night Sir
Winston Churchill's physicians
now face the difficult task of
preventing the 85-year-old states-
man from developing pneumonia.
Congestion of the lungs poses
the greatest threat to the life of
the former Prime Minister, now
bedridden with a broken bone in
his back.
This condition can only be held
at bay, the informant said, by
physiotherapy and by moving the
patient as much as his injury will
allow.
Churchill obviously was receiv-
ing such treatment. Miss Martyn
Jones, a physiotherapist from
Westminister Hospital, spent 40
minutes with him yesterday.,

Lao Agrees
To Coalition
Government
U.s. officials view
Action With Concern
VIENTIANE, Laos (a) - Faced
with the mounting strength of
rightist rebels, neutralist Premier
Souvanna Phouma agreed yester-
day to take the Communist-led
Pathet Lao into a coalition re-
gime.
Then Souvanna took off for
Sam Neua in northeast Laos, ap-
parently to confer with Prince
Souvanna Vong, his half brother
who leads the Pathet Lao.
Once before, when he was en-
trusted with the premiership in
1956, Souvanna patched up a truce
with his half brother that halt-
ed the civil war for a time.
Strife Intense
But now his approach to the
Pathet Lao may only intensify
civil strife. Gen. Phoumi Nosa-
van, head of the rightist rebel re-
gime,hhas sworn to drive the
Pathet Lao guerrillas from this
Asian kingdom..
The hard pressed premier ap-
peared to be turning toward the
Communists because of the pres-
sure from Phoumi, who, he charg-
es, is backed by the United States.
A communique announcing
agreement to the formation of a
coalition government did not say
when it would be formed or give
the extent of Pathet Lao partici-
pation.
U.S. Concerned
In Washington, the United
States said it views with concern
moves by the neutralist govern-
ment of Laos to give a new foot-
hold to Communist influence in
the Southeast Asian country.
There was stiff reaction to re-
ports from Vientiane that Phou-
ma is considering establishment
of a coalition government includ-
ing members of the Communist-
directed Pathet Lao and the ac-
ceptance of Communist aid.
State Department Press Officer
Lincoln White said, "We view
with concern these developments
in Vientiane because we fear, if
such recommendations are actual-
ly put into effect, Communist in-
fluence in the internal affairs of
Laos would be increased."
White said the future of the
big United States foreign aid pro-
gram in Laos "obviously is un-
der consideration."
Seek Aid
The Laos government said it
will appeal to Communist China
and Communist North Viet Nam
for economic aid. Souvanna's gov-
ernment accepted in principle an
offer of economic aid from the
Soviet Union last month.
In the past few days Souvanna
has become increasingly bitter to-
wad the United States, which has
been the main financial prop of
Laos.
He charged that United States
moral and military support is go-
ing to Phoumi, making reunifica-
tion impossible. The United States
says the financial aid it gives
Phoumi is pay for soldiers under
his command and was agreed to
by Souvanna himself.
Parachute troops of Capt. Kong
Le, leftist leader of the Aug. 9
coup that put Souvanna in power,
saw the premier off at the airport.
Destination of the flight was not
officially announced but an au-
thoritative source said Souvanna
flew directly to Sam Neua.
