ALGERIAN AID:
Reds Seek African Foothold

Industry Hunts Trained
Negroes for Top Jobs

By ANDREW BOROWIEC
Associated Press News Analyst
TUNIS-The Soviet Union, ap-
parently disregarding its disap-
pointments in Africa, may be mov-
ing to establish a major foothold
on the continent's northern coast.
The new pledge of Soviet aid to
Algeria, announced in Moscow
Wednesday,. opens the door to an
important Soviet penetration ef-
fort in North Africa.
At the same time, Premier Ni-
kita S. Khrushchev and an im-
pressive party of Soviet officials
are en route to the United Arab
Republic for a two-week visit.
Their 'ship passed through Tur-
key's Bosporos Strait yesterday
and steamed south toward Alexan-
dria.
Aswan Dam
On May 15, Khrushchev and
President Gamal Abel Nasser will
dedicate the Aswan Dam flood
control and power project being
built with the help of Soviet funds
and technicians.
It is too early to say whether
the Soviet effort wil bring per-
manent results. So far, Soviet aid
and spending in half a dozen
African nations have not brought
results expected by Communist
leaders.
The Algerian-Soviet agreement
followed a warning by the United
States state department that Com-
munist influence is on the in-
crease in Algeria. The statement
brought a violent rebuke by the
government - controlled Algerian
press.
Institute and Schools
Under terms of the agreement,
the Soviet Union will build and
equip a steel plant in Algeria, a
petroleum institute and technical
school as well as a textile school
and two agricultural study cen-
ters. Th ecenters will have Soviet
teachers.
This aid is in addition to ship-
ment of tractors, two airplanes
and a 19,000-ton tanker promised
by the Soviet Union.
On the completion of the educa-
tional part of the program, the
Soviet Union will become second
4fter France in cultural influence
in Algeria.
Influence
Some Western diplomats believe
that from Algeria, the Russians
will attempt to exert more in-
fluence on the neighboring coun-
tries of Tunisia and Morocco.
The new Soviet aid announce-
ment follows a triumphant visit to
Moscow by Algeria's left-leaning
President, Ahmed Ben Bella. It

Associated Press Business News Writer
NEW YORK -Qualified Negro
college graduates are being sought
by industry this year as never
before.
A survey indicates that unpre-
cedented numbers of industrial re-
cruiters have swarmed over cam-
puses to hunt out and talk to
Negro graduates and, in many
cases, hire them at top starting
salaries.
The search for outstanding
Negroes is, of course, a part of
an all-out hunt for able June
graduates.
But many national companies
are showing special interest in
the graduating Negro.
'Jobs for Real'
And, says Business Week mag-
azine, which conducted the sur-
vey, there is a general feeling that
industry really wants the Negro,
that the recruiting rush isn't
merely a desire to provide "win-
dow dressing" to head off civil
rights forces.
. One student was quoted as say-
ing, "We believe the new jobs are
for real, that this is not a fad.
There is some uncertainty about
the future, but the general belief
is that more jobs are opening up."
Fisk University in Nashville has
had to extend its normal recruit-
ing sessions for at least another
month.
Howard University in Washing-

ton, D.C. turned away more re-
cruiters this year than visited the
college five years ago, and has
logged 50 per cent more inter-
views than last year.
In Texas, Prairie View College
and Texas Southern University
report a tenfold increase in visit-
ing industrial recruiters over the
past few years.
The main targets of the re-
cruiters are top Negro graduates
majoring in science, biology, phy-
sics, mathematics, chemistry and
engineering.
Starting salaries in these fields
run up to $670 a month with an
average just under $600. These
compare favorably with starting
salaries for all graduates, regard-
less of color.
Scientists Popular
Placement directors say they
have calls for many more science
and engineering graduates than
they have available.
The survey showed that one
metallurgy student has had five
job offers. A coed with honors in
mathematics received 10 job of-
fers. Thirty of 40 engineers at a
college in North Carolina were
grabbed quickly.
Business administration, espe-
cially accounting, is proving to be
a good field for Negroes. The
placement director at Fisk said he
was "amazed at the tremendous
thrust for students majoring in
business administration."

UNITED ARAB Republic's President Gamal Abel Nasser and Al-
gerian President Ahmed Ben Bella have both recently been on
the receiving end of overtures from Russia. Soviet Premier Nikita
S. Khrushchev has been visiting Nasser and will be with him to
dedicate the Aswan Dam flood control and power project on
May 15. With Algeria, Khrushchev just two days ago announced
a new pledge of Soviet aid and continuance of funds that the
North African state is currently receiving. The efforts are viewed
in the west as attempts to extend Soviet influence into Africa.

follows a period during which Al-
geria has been making increasing
strides toward socialism and re-
duction of its economic depend-
ence on France, its former ruler.
However, France still remains
Algeria's main source of aid and
without it the country could not
function.
The Soviet bloc moved into Al-
geria after the July 1962 inde-
pendence. The Russians at first
adopted a cautious attitude.
A ban on theCommunist party
in Algeria in the fall of 1962 kept
the Soviet effort down. However,,

the growitl.g orientation uoward
socialism, hostility to the U.S. and
efforts to reduce French influen. e
apparently prompted the ° tiet
Union to increase its activiti s in
Algeria.
The Soviet Union has bee a ac-
tive with money and technical as-
sistance in Guinea, Mali and
Ghana in West Africa, i-;.ha
on the Eastern side of the conti-
nent and in the United Arab Re-
public.
