LANSING (P)--Republican leaders of the Constitutional Conven-
tion met in secret yesterday to hammer out a compromise on a pro-
posed State Civil Rights Commission.
The commission was provided for in a strongly worded proposal
tentatively approved by the committee-of-the-whole last week. The
proposal spells out broad powers for the commission.
Some of the conservative Republicans, however, balked at the
detailed listing of powers that would be included in the constitution

adopt the provision.

BEIRUT (R)--Syria's ruling jun-
ta offered President Nasser an
olive branch yesterday after north-
er army officers announced a
rebellion and demanded reunion
with the United Arab Republic.
Six anti - Nasser officers in
Syria's six-day-old military junta
were reported being snipped into
exile in a move to avert civil war.
Later reports said a compromise
ending the Aleppo uprising against
the junta was near.
The final decision on reunifi-
cation will rest with a popular
referendum, a broadcast by the
The junta, which led Syria out

But the same military leaders
who last September accused Nas-
ser of tyranny and of converting
Syria into a prison, put out this
statement over the radio in the
Syrian capital of Damascus:
"The high command of the arm-
ed forces explained that it believes
in unity with all liberated Arab
countries, and first of all with
Egypt, provided this unity is es-
tablished on a genuine basis and
with conditions guaranteeing the
dignity of this country and its
entity and avoiding the mistakes
of the past-on the condition that
these conditions are decided in a
popular free referendum."
Avert War .
Striving to avert open civil war,
junta leaders were reported try-
ing to find civilian politicians to
head a compromise government.
Among those approached was de-
posed President Nazem El Koudsi.
Conferences were reported un-
der way between the junta and
the rebel officers to find a solu-
tion. Sources in Damascus said

ashore at the oil port of Sorong
on the northwest tip of New Gui-

edged landings in all these areas
except Sarong but said the infil-
trators are being wiped out.

The session was called at Wash-
ington's urging after Indonesia
threatened to use force to back
up its claim to West New Guinea.
Nasution asserted the Dutch used
the talks as a delaying tactic while
building up their military forces
in West New Guinea.
Sources close to President Su-
karno said, however, he will agree
to resume the negotiations be-
cause of international pressure
and because he is impressed by
President John F. Kennedy's per-
sonal interest in the dispute.
But these sources made clear
there would be no weakening of
Sukarno's insistence that adminis-
tration of West New Guinea be
turned over to Indonesia.

tailored for the children of the slums.
