Illinois Goes
To Kennedy
Republican dominated state elec-
toral board yesterday unanimous-
ly certified President-elect John
F. Kennedy's 27 Illinois electors
after hearing-and dismissing for
lack of sufficient evidence - GOP
charges of vote fraud in Chicago.
Outgoing Gov. William G.
Stratton, board chairman, sum-
med up the attitude of the five-
member board by declaring that
insufficient evidence was offered
to justify withholding the Dem-
ocratic electoral votes.
Stratton said he would not have
hesitated to refuse to certify the
official vote canvass on a "show-
ing of overwhelming evidence of
At a two-hour hearing, an at-
torney for the Nixon recount com-
mittee urged the board to refuse
certification until returns from
Cook County "have been corrected
for apparent fraud, gross irregu-
larity and admitted error."

CAIRO (A) - A bloodless palace
guard coup - joined by military
forces and headed by the eldest
son of Emperor Haile Selassie -
clamped a new social reform
government on Ethiopia yester-
day. Iron military rule prevailed
in Addis Ababa, the capital.
The almost legendary "king of
kings"--a fateful figure of modern
times-himself was thousands of
miles away on a state visit to
Brazil, and his future role at home
was not defined. Reports from
Brazil indicated Selassie was out-
wardly unperturbed.
The avowed aim of the regime
proclaimed by Crown Prince Asfa
Wassan, in a broadcast from the
East African highland capital is
to reform social customs dating
from pre-Christian times.
It would end what the prince
called "3,000 years of injustice."
The modern-minded prince of
the ancient realm thus apparently
took a firm step in his father's
absence to put Ethiopia on the
track of nationalism and socialism
prevalent in neighboring Egypt
and Sudan and other emerging,
African powers. -
Reports from Sudan said Addis
Ababa remained tranquil through
the transition and there was no
bloodshed; the sole purpose was
to remove the Emperor and replace
him with his son, according to
these reports.
Selassie had been both chief
of state and head of government
with the council of ministers di-
rectly responsible to him.
The new regime is under strict
military control for the present,
reports from Addis Ababa said.

VIENTIANE (W - The seesaw
battle for this Laotian capital
focused yesterday on the center
of the city, where anti-Commu-
nist troops tried to dislodge a mix-
ed pro-Communist force.
Troops loyal to General Phou-
mi Nosavan advanced from the
northern section of the city
against stiff resistance put up by
paratroops and pro-Communist
Pathet Lao guerrillas command-
ed by Capt. Kong Le.
One of the focal points of the
fighting was the area around army
headquarters and the ministry of
defense. Kong Le's troops, identi-
fied by their red armbands, put
up heavy mortar and machine gun
fire against armored cars and
infantry wearing white arm bands.
Early in the afternoon army
headquarters burst into flame.
It was the second day of battle
that followed a night of confusion
and scattered gunfire during which
Kong Le's pro-Communist forces
retook the center of the city. They
had lost it Tuesday afternoon,
when Kong Le's troops fell back
steadily until nightfall.
NATO Views
Plan To Station
Troops in U.S.
PARIS()-Military and politi-
cal leaders of the North Atlantic
alliance yesterday considered the
advisability of stationing West
German ' and other European
troops o United States soil.
Informants said such an ar-
rangement might help halt the
drain on United States gold and
dollar reserves and give Western
Europe's confined armies enough
room to train with modern wea-
This startling suggestion was
one of a number of economic pro-
posals given careful study by
NATO diplomats gathering here
for their annual review opening
tomorrow. All were aimed pri-
marily at the same thing-trim-
ming West Germany's swelling
currency surplus and getting gold
and dollars flowing back again

ALGIERS' (M -- French riot
forces used guns, tear gas and
concussion grenades yesterday to
turn back swarms of Moslems in
the seaport of Bone and around
the ancient Casbah of Algiers.
Two Moslems were killed and
an undetermined number wound-
ed when police in Bone opened
fire on 2,000 Moslems who turned
a funeral procession for comrades
killed in Tuesday's rioting into a

crisis' in Africa
African colonies pressed for in-
dependence from their European
rulers and a great many new
states were peacefully established,
with the continued aid of Europe.
Their mass admission to the Unit-
ed Nations served notice of the
Dark Continent's increasing im-
But in the Belgian Congo it was
far from peaceful. Patrice Lum-
umba, only recently released from
a Belgian prison for inciting riots,
became the republic's first pre-
mier on July 1. Army mutineers
turned their new freedom to li-
cense as they pillaged European
shops and homes and attacked
white settlers. After three days
of disorder, however, the govern-
ment orders were, for the most
part, obeyed.
A struggle for power ensued,
with Lumumba, Congo President
Joseph Kasavubu, Katanga Pre-
mier Moise Tshombe and the pres-
ent strongman, Col. Joseph Mo-
butu battling for control.
Both East and West interfered
in the struggle, but Mobutu and
Kasavubu emerged in 'the drivers
seat. They ejected foreign Com-
munists, imprisoned Lumumba
and took the Congo's UN seat.
However, further civil war is a
definite possibility.
United Nations troops have
been in the Congo since August
in an effort to keep the strife-
ridden nation together, but sev-
eral Asian-African nations have
recently withdrawn troops charg-
ing the UN is pro-Mobutu.
And with the consequences of
Congolese independence clearly
evident, the Algerian crisis re-
ceived a thorough examination by
French President Charles de
Gaulle. The rightists, after rioting
earlier in the year, renewed their
obstructionist efforts as the French
president worked for more Al-
gerian self-rule and eventual self-
determination. De Gaulle himself
visited Algeria this week, and was
met by more riots, which killed
123 persons.
He faces a national referendum
on the issue, but he is almost sure
to win, and the protracted nego-
