Indonesian Chief Vows Hostilities
Following 'Settlement' by Kennedy
BANGKOK (,P) - President Sukarno of Indonesia has thrown a
monkey wrench into mediation machinery built up by United States
Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy for a settlement of the Malaysian crisis.
Sukarno vowed continued hostility toward Malaysia in a speech
in Jakarta last night right after Kennedy left on a roundabout flight
back to Washington with an agreement among Indonesia, Malaysia
and the Philippines on steps toward peace.
The Indonesian leader told a rally of 15,000 cheering youths
that his island nation will press its drive to crush Malaysia

WASHINGTON (P)-The Unit-
ed States and Panama reportedly
narrowed their differences at a
meeting last night of the Inter-
American Peace Committee.
United States and Panamanian
delegates, although not members
of the committee, met with the
peace-seeking group for 1:/2 hours
at headquarters of the Organiza-
tion of American States.
An authoritative source report-
-ed the committee turned over to
United States and Panamanian
delegates a draft agreement to
end the 15-day-old dispute.
Venezuelan Ambassador En-
Enrique Tejera Paris, committee
chairman, would only say that the
meeting "has been suspended un-
til 3:30 p.m. today." The delay
was to give the Panamanian and
American delegates time to con-
sult their governments.
The sources said the committee
feels that a statement earlier in
the day by President Lyndon B.
Johnson contributed toward set-
tlement of United States-Pana-
manian differences over the Pan-
ama Canal. The committee had
conferred with Johnson before-
hand at the White House.
It was reported that the com-
mittee laid emphasis on John-
son's statement that "for the fu-
ture we have stated our willing-
ness to engage without limitation
or delay in a full and frank re-
view and reconsideration of all is-
sues between our two countries."

in the day from the Inter-Amer-

peaceful resolution of the dispute.
Panama, which broke off dip-
lomatic negotiations, has refused
to discuss a resumption unless the
United States agrees in advance
to renegotiate the 1903 treaty
under which this country controls
the Panama Canal. .
Agreed to Cease-Fire
Tactically, Indonesia had agreed
to a cease-fire with Malaysia in
the undeclared jungle war on their
800-mile-long border in Borneo.
Both had agreed to join the
Philippines in a conference of for-
eign ministers in Bangkok the first
week in February, a possible pre-
liminary to a summit meeting. All

to check on any violations of the

Offer of Better Sugar Deal

MOSCOW (P) - Fidel Castro apparently has committed himself
at last to Russian Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev's side in the Moscow-
Peking feud after he was promised a better deal for Cuban sugar.
The Cuban prime minister flew back to Havana yesterday after
voicing support for the nuclear test ban treaty.

At the same time, §o far as
France is concerned, Paris will
maintain the present relations
with the Nationalist Chinese re-
gime of Formosa.
Informed sources in Taipei, For-
mosa, said however that National-
ist China already has notified
some friendly nations it will break
off relations with France when
Paris recognizes Peking.
French President Charles de
Gaulle will expound his new Far
Eastern policy to the world in his
news conference Jan. 31, the
French sources said. The president
also is expected to use this appear-
ance as a platform to explain
France's policies toward Latin
America, his position on European
union and other world problems.
French officials generally con-
firmed these reports with one
qualification: a last minute com-
plication might upset the schedule.
Price of Relations
By complication, they obviously
meant a demand by Peking that
France break relations with Na-
tionalist China as the price of re-
lations with the Chinese mainland.
Thus, far, there has been no such
condition, and French officials
have indicated that de Gaulle
would refuse to accept it.
In ..London, Foreign Minister
Maurice Couve de Murville told a
meeting of European foreign min-
isters that France would have rec-
ognized Peking long ago had it not
been for the Korean War and the
nationalist rebellion in Algeria.
French sources contend that the
"two Chinas" label is a misnomer.
They say that recognition of Pe-
king simply would be an acknowl-
edgment of existing facts: Peking
controls the Mainland, and Presi-

A GUIDE FOR THE GUIDERS
One of the most interesting academic theories advanced in
many a long year has recently been advanced by that interest-
ing academic theorist, E. Pluribus Ewbank, Ph. D. who holds
the chair of Interesting Academic Theories at the St. Lopis
College of Footwear and Educational Philosophy. Dr. Ewbank
said in the last issue of the learned journal, the Mount Rushmore
Guide to Scholastic Advancement and Presidents' Heads, that we
might be approaching the whole problem of student guidance
from the wrong direction.
Dr. Ewbank, a highly respected pedagogue and a lifelong
smoker of Marlboro Cigarettes, (I mention Marlboros for two
reasons: first, to indicate the scope of Dr. Ewbank's brainpower.
Out of all the dozens of brands of cigarettes available today,
Dr. Ewbank has had the wit and taste to pick the one with the
most flavorful flavor, the most filtracious filter, the most soft
soft pack, the most flip top Flip Top box: I refer, of course, to
Marlboro. The second reason I mention Marlboro is that I get
paid to mention Marlboro in this column, and the laborer you
will agree, is worthy of his hire.)
But I digress. To return to Dr. Ewbank's interesting theory,
he contends that most college guidance counselors are inclined
to take the easy way out. That is to say, if a student's aptitude
tests show a talent for, let us say, math, the student is encour-
aged to major in math. If his tests show an aptitude for poetry,
he is directed toward poetry. And so forth.

We'll be on the campus on the dates listed below,

graduate students information on space-age careers
in a dynamic industry.
If you are looking for a company offering assign-
ments on programs of unique interest and career
potential, you'll be interested in the advantages
Boeing can offer you.
Boeing, for instance, is a major contractor on such
advanced programs as NASA's S-IC Saturn V first-
stage booster, and the solid-fuel Minuteman ICBM.
Boeing is also the world's foremost designer and
builder of multi-jet aircraft, including the eight-
SP . __ hm,.t K TC135 tanker..
In addition, Boeing's Vertol Division is one of Amer-
ica's leading designers and builders of helicopters.
Research projects at Boeing are under way in such
advanced fields as celestial mechanics, solid state
physics, nuclear and plasma physics, flight sciences,
space flight and propulsion.
Boeing programs offer exceptional opportunities to
holders of B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. At Boeing
you'll work in a small group where individual ability
and initiative get plenty of visibility. You'll enjoy
many other advantages, including an opportunity to
take graduate studies at company expense to help
you get ahead faster. Boeing is an equal opportunity
All wrong, says Dr. Ewbank. The great breakthroughs, the
startling innovations in, let us say, math, are likely to .be made
not by mathematicians-whose thinking, after all, is constrained
by rigid rules and principles-but by mavericks, by noncon-
formists, by intuitors who refuse to fall into the rut of reason.
For instance, set a poet to studying math. He will bring a fresh,
unfettered mind to the subject, just as a mathematician will
bring the same kind of approach to poetry.
By way of evidence, Dr. Ewbank cites -the case of Cipher
Binary, a youth who entered college with brilliant test scores in
physics, chemistry, and the calculus. But Dr. Ewbank forced
young Cipher to major in poetry.
The results were astonishing. Here, for example, is, young
Cipher's latest poem, a love lyric of such originality that Lord
Byron springs to mind. I quote:
He was her logarithm,
She was his cosine.
Taking their dog with 'em.
They hastened to go sign
Marriage vows which they joyfully shared,
And wooed and wed and pi r squared.
Similarly, when a freshman girl named Elizabeth Barrett
Sigafoos came to Dr. Ewbank to seek guidance, he ignored the
fact that she had won the Pulitzer prize .for poetry when she
was eight, and insisted she major in mathematics. Again the
results were startling. Miss Sigafoos has set the entire math
