More Aid
LONDON (IP-Four Southeast
Asia Treaty Organization allies
last night expected formal invita-
tions from the Bangkok govern-
ment to send token military forces
into Thailand.
Qualified diplomats said the
Thais have been urged by the
United States in the past few days
to make this request. The United
States already is building up a
force of 5,000 Marines and Army
soldiers to strengthen Thailand's
security. The Thais appear to have
been persuaded that other SEATO
forces would be a good sign of
The four awaiting Bangkok's

Zealand and the Philippines.
French President Charles de
Gaulle is expected to rule against

SEATO member, Pakistan, is heav-
ily engaged in an old dispute with
India and has been somewhat dis-
gruntled lately over some aspects
of their military cooperation with
the West.

Plans To Move
Stored Grain
culture Department, in a surprise
move, said yesterday it will re-
move all government grain from
elevators and warehouses owned or
controlled by Billie Sol Estes.
The only explanation offered
was that Secretary of Agriculture
Orville L. Freeman had decided
"that the best interests of the de-
partment would be served by mo-
ing this grain out in an orderly
Estes has declared his financial
empire bankrupt and is under in-
'dictment on fraud charges.
So far, there have been no
charges of irregularities inEstes'
grain storage operations, but there
have been allegations that Estes
received favored treatment in
keeping his facilities filled while
others in the areahad available
George A. Barnes, an assistant
to Freeman, said the 42 million
bushels of grain stored in Estes'
facilities would be moved out
through regular channels over a
period of about 18 months. He said
there would be no "crash" pro-
gram to get it out.
The announcement came at the
first of a new series of two-a-day
briefings on the Estes case.

Dutch Move
Women Out
FAKFAK, West New Guinea (R)
-Ships and planes are withdraw-
ing about 700 Dutch women and
children from peninsular villages
of West New Guinea to remove
them from the hazards of a jungle
war between Dutch forces and in-
filtrating Indonesians.
Meanwhile Dutch Premier Jan,
de Quay appealed urgently to UN
Acting Secretary-General U Thant
to intervene in the fighting and
send observers to help check what
he called Indonesia's aggression,

Lower House Debate
The Netherlands lower house
scheduled a debate at the Hague
tomorrow on the crisis.
The government in Hollandia
announced yesterday it is permit-
ting Dutch families to leave towns
and villages along a vulnerable
500-mile stretch of the west and
southwest coast which has been
the target for a half dozen drops
by Indonesian parachute troops.
About 400 Indonesian soldiers
are estimated to have landed in
the campaign by President Sukar-
no's government to capture this
island territory, which the Dutch
retained when they freed the rest
of the East Indies in 1949.
Military Base
The women and children will
be resettled on Biak, an island at
the entrance of Geelvink Bay on
the north coast. This was a Japan-
ese military base in World War II
and is now a relay station for
Dutch reinforcements from the

Durant Files
Suit on Stahiin
DETROIT (M)-A $1-million suit
filed yesterday accuses Sen. John
H. Stahlin (R-Belding) and his
press aide of libel when they com-
plained Richard Durant was try-
ing to take over the Republican
Party in Wayne County.
Durant, a Grosse Pointe resi-
dent and "proud to be a member
of the John Birch Society," said
he will withdraw the suit he filed
yesterday if Stahlin "retracts and

the number rounded up and forc-
ibly returned.
Crowded Tenement
It is believed that at least 8,000
to 10,000 more got through the
border patrols and found haven
in Hong Kong's crowded tene-
ments. Normally about 60,000 ref-
ugees, legal and illegal, enter Hong
Kong each year.
Border police sources said tem-
pers were growing short on all
sides. The refugees, who at first
submitted docilely to arrest and
deportation, are growing more
truculent. Hong Kong's thousands
of Chinese residents crammed into
squalid quarters are increasingly
abusive of officials. And police
and troops are showing the strain
from almost continuous duty in
the three-week crisis.
Angry Chinese Crowds
"The situation can blowsup at
any time," a police informant said.
A British police officer was as-
sualted Monday by an angry Chi-
nese crowd which tried to stop
truck convoys forcibly returning
captured refugees to the Red Chi-
nese border.

WASHINGTON (P) - President
John F. Kennedy was reported to
have told Congressional leaders
yesterday that 'American Medical
Association doctors fighting his'
Medicare Plan are trying to con-
fuse the people and are not prop-
erly informed.
Senf. Hubert H. Humphrey of
Minnesota, Assistant Senate Dem-
ocratic leader, relayed this word

to reporters after a White House
breakfast conference of the top
Democrats and the President.
He said Kennedy repeated a
previous charge that the doctors,
who contend the provisions for fi-
nancing health insurance for the
elderly through social security
taxes means socialized medicine,
have not studied the administra-
tion measure.
The AMA mounted a nation-
wide, televised counter-attack last
night against pro-Medicare rallies
held, over the weekend -- one of
them adressed bykthe President.
Their leaders called it a "cruel
hoax" which would "heartlessly
ignore millions" needing coverage.

most controversial before Con-
gress, is under consideration by

Three Ways

With the entire feminine
world of fashion buzzing in
excitement over the fabulous
Faberge collection of cosmetics
Extraordinairewomen are apt
to get so fascinated with all
the beautiful lipstick, Nail
Glace, and eye makeup colours
- and the exciting black-and-
white packages -that they
sometimes overlook the more
practical - but surely just as
newsworthy - creations.



r ,


Among the most important
and unusual of these Faberge
innovations is a most remark-
able new nail care discovery,
Ceramic Glaze. Developed by
Faberge after years of pains-
taking research and testing,
Ceramic Glaze embodies a
principle - glazing - used by
artists for centuries to protect
and beautify their precious
ceramic masterpieces. Once
this was laborious and time-
consuming; now, thanks to
Faberge, the same effect is
achieved through a marvelous
scientific formulation that
makes Ceramic Glaze so unique
and so amazingly effective.
Ingenious Ceramic Glaze
works in three separate ways
-- as base, as sealer, as a col-
ourless polish. Under colour,
Ceramic Glaze forms a shock-
absorbent foundation cushion
of super-adherence that actu-
ally fuses into the',colour you
apply over it... makes it cling
tenaciously. Over colour,
Ceramic Glaze continues this
incredible fusing action to
form a tough and flexible
sparkling coat of armor that
guards the manicure from
water, weather, wear- makes
it last longer, look more
"alive." As a colourless polish,
Ceramic Glaze gives dull, life-
less nails the rosy gloss and
glow of health, vigor, strength
...and it protects as it pretties
