Anti-Government Riots

Army Sent
To Capture
Ex-Premier
LEOPO-VILLE-The Con-
golese army yesterday was order-
ed to pursue and capture fugitive
ex-premier Patrice Lumumba be-
fore he can reach his political
stronghold of Stanleyville.
His flight raised the threat of
civil war in this troubled nation.
Lumumba drove past sleepy
Congolese soldiers watching his
villa last night, leaving behind
a statement saying he was going
to Stanleyville for the funeral of
his infant daughter.
Not Reassured
But his political foes, President
Joseph Kasavubu and Col. Jo-
seph Mobutu, the army chief,
seemed far from reassured by
his promise to return within a
few days for Kasavubu's unity
conferences. Kasavubu has prom-
ised to call a conference of all
fections shortly.
Kasavubu and Mobutu were as-
tounded when the news of Lum-
umba's flight reached them at
Brazzaville, capital of the Congo
Republic across the river from
Leopoldville.
Kasavubu and Mobutu had gone
to Brazzaville for that republic's
independence celebrations. But
they took advantage of the oc-
casion to discuss Congo unity
with two dissident leaders, Pres
ident Moise Tshombe of Katanga
Province and President Joseph
Kalonji of the so-called mining
state in Kasai Province.
Kasavubu Remains
Kasavubu remained in Brazza-
ville, but Mobutu hurried back to
Leopoldville after ordering his ar-
my to try to head off Lumumba.
Disquieting to the two pro-
Western Congolese leaders was the
knowledge that Lumumba's top
lieutenants already are in Stan-
leyville, capital of Oriente prov-
ince. They are said to be or-
ganizing an anti-Western regime
designed to restore Lumumba to
power.
Illinois Delays
Certification
Of State Vote
SPRINGFIELD M)-The state
electoral board held a two-minute
meeting yesterday and put off ac-
tion on canvassing the Nov. 8 Illi-
nois election returns.
No date for its next meeting
was set.
The board must certify the elec-
tion results from Illinois' 102
counties before the state's 27 elec-
tors, pledged to President-elect
John F. Kennedy, can cast their
ballots in Washington Dec. 19.
Kennedy defeated Vice-Presi-
dent Richard M. Nixon by a mar-
gin of 8,849 votes out of nearly
4.75 million cast in Illinois.
The board decided on the de-
lay after the secretary of state's
office announced that the official
Cook County (Chicago) returns
had not been received.
Democratic State Chairman
James A. Ronan, who attended
the board meeting as an observ-
er, told newsmen he doubted if
the board could do anything but
certify the vote as received from
the 102 county clerks.

A three-judge federal court has
not yet ruled on motions to tem-
porarily halt integration and to
abandon integration plans.
Officials said that a decision
would perhaps be made public to-
day,
For more than 100 students of
William Frantz school there were
classes. But, they were in schools
segregated in adjoining St. Ber-
nard Parish.
Armand Duvio, head of the Wil-
liam Frantz school cooperative,
said chartered buses took 104 stu-
dents of the fourth, fifth and
sixth grades to the other parish.

Legislature and the New Orleans

Street violence subsided, at
least temporarily, following the
appearance of army units flown
here from the interior.
Troops patrolled thickly popu-
lated working class sections in
western Caracas while riot police
and national guardsmen guarded
the central and eastern sectors.
Youths Armed
Earlier, several hundred youths,
mostly teen-agers, roved in small
bands, battling police, smashing
windows and burning cars and
buses. They were armed with guns,
fire bombs and stones.
With tear gas and smoke
mingling in the city streets, Bet-
ancourt denounced the disorders
as preliminaries in an effort to
oust his government and install
in Venezuela "a regime similar to
that which exists in Cuba."
High Venezuelan leaders ral-
lied quickly behind the president.
Ex-President Romulo Gallegos
made a broadcast appealing for
support of Betancourt.
Jose Gonzalez, leader of the
Central Organization of Venezue-
lan Laborers, declared labor's
support of Betancourt.
FBI To Check
Abusive Letter
UNITED NATIONS {)-Unit-
ed States Ambassador James J.
Wadsworth said last night he has
asked the FBI to investigate a
scurrilous letter received by some
United Nations delegations and
"reputedly originating from the
Ku Klux Klan."
The letter was received by sev-
eral African delegations. It was
sent to their hotel rooms and
addressed to them by name, indi-
cating the author had access to
a private list of addresses.
