Zorin Requests Issue
Go before Assembly
UNITED NATIONS (W) - The
Soviet Union and three Asian-
African nations failed yesterday
to gain Security Council censure
of Belgium for alleged interven-
tion in the Congo.
Valerian A. Zorin, Soviet depu-
ty foreign minister, immediately
told the council he considered the
issue should be brought before the
99-nation General Assembly. But
he did not say whether he would
request such action before the As-
sembly resumes its regular session
in March."
Only the Soviet Union, Liberia,
Ceylon and the United Arab Re-
public voted for a resolution that
would have found Belgium guilty
of violating its trusteeship over
Ruanda-Urundi.
Based on Raid
The resolution submitted by the
_ three Asian - African nations
sought such action on the grounds
that Belgium permitted Congo
troops of Col. Joseph Mobutu to
use the territory as a base for a
Iraid Jans. 1 on troops in Kivu
province who support deposed
Premier Patrice Lumumba.
All other members of-the 11-
nation council abstained - the
United States, Britain, France,
Nationalist China, Chile, Ecuador
s and Turkey. Seven affirmative
votes were required.
Secretary-General Dag Ham-
a marskJold spoke briefly Just be-
m fore the vote. He had been ac-
- cused by the Soviet Union of ra-
e cial bias in carrying out UN oper-
e ations in the Congo, and with
s helping the Belgians take action
against the Lumumba forces.
Hammarskjold Charges
s Hammarskjold declared that the
al charges were raised by the Soviet
s Union for the purpose of trying
d to sow distrust between Congo of-
- ficials and UN personnel.
The secretary-general, who flew
3 back from Africa to attend the
g council sessions, said that docu-'
Le ments he had placed before the
council proved the falsity of So-
g viet accusations, and he did not
al intend to reply in detail.
n He appealed to the Council to
let the 11-nation Asian-African
conciliation mission in the Congo
go ahead with its attempts to
reconcile political rivalries, and to
establish conditions that would
permit stabilization of the coun-
try.

HAVANA(iF) - Cuba's island-
wide invasion alert went into its
third week yesterday with public
enthusiasm visibly dwindling and
a dash of skepticism in even the
highest circles.
Prime Minister Fidel Castro ex-
tended the alert another two days
--to Jan. 20-in a television ad-
dress Friday night. But even Cas-
tro switched his major attention
from invasion warnings to a care-
ful suggestion of a reconciliation
with Washington after John F.
Kennedy is inaugurated as Presi-
dent on the day the invasion alert
expires.
Castro had been expected to
claim that Cuba's new military
might had frightened off the in-
vaders he predicted were coming
before President Eisenhower leaves
office. But he did not make this
boast, as he has in past invasion
scares.
The bearded prime minister
hinted he might use Guantanamo
naval base, from which he has,
promised to oust the United States
by legal means, as a lever to bar-
gain for better relations with the
United States under a new ad-
ministration.
"We have no points of friction
with the incoming government,"
Castro declared, "since all indus-

BRUSSELS (M - The Belgian
government yesterday said it will

tinue their strike tomorrow against

terity program.
This includes railway workers
as well as postmen, telegraph and
telephone workers, rural bus and
streetcar drivers and state admin-
istration personnel.

CAPE CANAVERAL(W) -A Po-

It was the second time in three
days that a Polaris fired from the

cause after breaking relations

United. States before world opin-
ion is untenable as regards the
base."
"Victory Rally"'
About 30,000 persons turned out
to hear Castro at the "victory
rally." This was a small group,
considering the week spent by the
government trying to whip up en-
thusiasm for the mass meeting
in front of the presidential pal-
ace.

WASHINGTON (A')-This capital
city broke out red, white and blue
bunting yesterday as it began
dressing for the inauguration of
John F. Kennedy as the nation's
35th president.
Whatever the domestic and
world problems awaiting the new
administration, the coming week
will be a time of pageantry and
celebration by the Democrats re-
turning to power after eight years.
There will be solemnity, too--
when the 43-year-old Kennedy re-
cites the oath at noon Friday in
the shadow of a remodeled Capitol

Kennedy, who is soaking up

In the city's business distric

were draped with the nations
colors. In many windows, picture
of the incoming president an

Reds Revise
Marx Ideal
MOSCOW (A')_ The Communist
ideal of supply~ng everyone ac-
cording to his needs is being partly
abandoned here under pressure of
Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev's
thunderboldts in favor of hard-
headed payment for excellence and
production.
The Soviet press disclosed yes-
terday that the old idea was
soundly assailed by Khrushchev
yesterday at a plenary meeting
of the Communist party central
,committee. The committee is mak-
ing an agonizing examination of
the shortcomings of Soviet agri-
culture. Erring regional leaders
have been bowled over time after
time by Khrushchev's interrup-
tions.
Khrushchev's assault on tradi-
tionalism came during a report
by Y. N. Zarobyan, chief of the
Communist party in Soviet Ar-
menia. Zarobyan was telling the
meeting of "wonderfully skilled"
workers on his collective and state
farms. Khrushchev broke in:
"Comrade Zarobyan, do these
people receive additional pay or
not?"
"They certainly do," replied
Zarobyan.
With a tone of some complaint,
Khrushchev continued:
"No one (else) says anything
else about additional payment for
work. Do you want to build Com-
munism only on moral factors?
Moral factors are good, but there
must be a material basis."
