After Truce Arranged by Abboud
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (R) - A truce is to halt border warfare
between Ethiopia and Somalia at noon today under an agreement
A telegraphic exchange between President Ibrahim Abboud of
Sudan and Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia provided for the cease-
fire in 8-day-old hostilities that have aroused international concern.
Ministers of the Organization of African Unity, meeting in emer-
gency session at Dar Es Salaam, Tanganyika, had called for both
sides to end the shooting. They urged peace also in a similar frontier

Congress Starts Work
On College Student Aid
WASHINGTON -P-Congress begins work next week on two more
of President Lyndon B. Johnson's key 1964 legislative proposals-an
omnibus housing bill and a college student aid measure.
So far this year the legislators have devoted most of their time to
the two top-priority items on the admiinstration's list-civil rights
and a tax cut.
Some action is expected on these two in the week ahead. But both.
House and Senate will broaden out into new fields as the pace at the
capitol continues to be much fast- "

drawn fire from some legislators
as too broad and too expensive.

NEW YORK (M)-The committee
which sponsored the biggest civil,
rights demonstation in United
States history has fallen apart,
divided about whether a second

through a strong bill, it would help
