Tunisian Delegate Elected
General Assembly Chief

UNITED NATIONS (P) - The
United Nations General Assembly
quickly elected" Tunisian delegate
Mongi Slim as its president yes-,
terday, but no agreement was in
sight on the critical problem of'
choosing a successor to Secretary-
General Dag Hammarskjold.
The moderate North African
received all 96 votes cast after In-
donesian Ambassador Ali Sastroa-
midjojo had withdrawn from the
race.
Takes Chair
He took over the chair from the
outgoing president, Frederick HI.
Boland of Ireland.
Slim, referred immediately to
the death of Hammarskjold, which
has overshadowed the normallyt
routine. organizational procedure
at the opening meetings.
"The . shining example that Mr.
Hammarskjold has given us should
be an inspiration to all of us in
this Assembly;" Slim said.
Slim is expected to play a ma-
jor role in the efforts now going
on to work out a temporary ar-
rangement to keep the office of
secretary-general operating.
Push Poste
Western diplomats have been
pushing a move to have him chos-
en as interim secretary-general,
but he is reported cool to the idea.
Boland also 'has been urged to
take over the post, but he also is
said to be reluctant.
;Whatevertemporary arrange-
ment is made, diplomats believe,-
probably will have to be done ]
without Soviet support.,
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko indicated' Moscow will
settle for nothing less than a
three-man secretariat to control
the United Nations. The West says
such a board would paralyze the
world organization.
Raises Fears
It heightened fears that the en-
tire question of selecting a new a
secretary-general would wind- -up
in an East-Westdeadlock, leaving
the UN admirristration without a
leader. - But the United States F
served notice it will press for
adoption of the plan. t

TROIKA:
ITalks Fail
On Control
Of Arms
UNITED NATIONS (P) - The
United States and Russia report-
ed to the United Nations -yester-
day their complete failure to
agree, during three months of dis-
cussion on some means of re-
starting full-scale East-West dis-
armenent negotiations.
Offsetting this new blow to the
world's hopes for an end to the
nuclear arms race, however, the
two powers also advised the Gen-
eral Assembly they were able to
agree on an eight-point statement
of principles to guide any future
disarmament conference.
The principles call for aboli-
tion of all weapons of mass de-
struction and disbanding of arm-
ed forces-the steps to be carried
out in stages under "strict and
effective international control."
The objective of negotiations,
the statement declared, would be
to bring about "general and com-
plete disarmament."
The conditions placed heavy
stress on a need for inspection and
enforcement machinery under an
International Disarmament Or-
ganization.
It also called for building up a
UN military force.
The breakdown of efforts to
organize a new disarmament con-
ference came over the issue of
what nations should take part.
Russia insisted from the start of
United States-Soviet talksalast
June 19 in Washington that the
make-up of the conference should
be based on its "Troika" proposal
-the same issue which has now
deadlocked selection of a succes-
sor to the late UN Secretary-Gen-
eral Dag Hammarskj old.

ICA Position
WASHINGTON-New York at-
torney Fowler Hamilton, a spe-
cialist in international law, was
picked by President John F. Ken-
nedy to head the new foreign aid
agency, the White House an-
nounced yesterday. n
Press Secretary Pierre Salinger
said Henry Labouisse, now head
of the International Co-operation
Administration (ICA) would con-
tinue in government in another
high post.;
The ICA and other facets of
foreign aid are being reorganized
into a new single agency recom-
mended by Kennedy and recently
authorized by Congress.

De Gaulle To Drop
Emergency Powers

. .Beau~tiful Styling..

PARIS (M)-President' de Gaulle
yesterday told the cabinet he
plans to give up his special pow-
ers, which practically give him the
authority of a dictator, at the end
of September.
De Gaulle assumed special pow-
ers last April during the uprising
of army and air force leaders in
Algeria. The constitution permits
the president to concentrate au-
thority in his own hands when
government institutions, national
independence or territorial integ-
rity of the state are menaced. -
Protests from Left and Right
have been mounting in recent
weeks that the rebellion has long
since 'been put down and that
there is no valid reason for a con-
tinuation of the emergency pow-
ers.

'

Parliament opens itshfall ses-
sion Oct. 3. One of the things
that irked the deputies and sen-
ators was de Gaulle's ruling that
Parliament could meet to discuss
issues, but could take no legisla-
tive action, while the president
holds extraordinary powers.
France To Gain

WASHINGTON {P? - Congress
gave final approval yesterday to
a Kennedy administration agree-
.ment to share with France secret
information for training troops in
using nuclear weapons.

VACATED CHAIR-Dag Hammarskjold's empty chair left a
vacant place on the dais as Mongi Slim, new president, presided
at yesterday's session of the UN General Assembly. At right is
Andrew Cordier, assistant secretary-general.
EPISCOPALIAN:
Bishops Approve Steps
To Unify U.S. Churches
DETROIT (A')-By a swift and stunningly unanimous vote, the
Episcopal House of Bishops yesterday approved steps seeking to unite
a broad range of American churches.
Frank amazement greeted the action.
"I'm quite speechless," remarked the presiding bishop, the Rt.
Rev. Arthur Lichtenberger of New York.
Others reacted similarly after the widely-debated move went
through without a floor clash or a dissenting voice. It called for join-
ing with the United Presbyterian
Church in launching merger talks
with the Methodist Church of
Christ, the Polish National Cath-
olic Church and possibly others.

"Cure for Job boredom:a
I made my favorite
pastime my career!"
Richard Bertram, President
Bertram Yacht Co., Division of Nautec Corp.
"When you stop to think what percent of our total waking
hours is spent bread-winning, you realize how tragic it is
for any man to work at an occupation he doesn't enjoy.
Besides frittering away life, it reduces chancges of success
to just about zero. I know..,.. because it almost happened
to me!
After college, I did what I thought was expected of me
and joined a solid, Manhattan-based insurance firm. I
soon found office routine wasn't for me. I lived only for

lunch hour when I could walk to the Battery and mentally
sail with the ships that stood out in the Narrows ... and
for the summer weekends when I could go sailing. Fortu-
nately, the company I worked for is one of the leading
insurers of yachts and after two years I was transferred
to their Yacht Underwriting Department. Enjoyment and
interest in my work improved immediately 100%.
After World War II, I started my own yacht brokerage
firm and yacht insurance agency in Miami, combining my
marine insurance background with an even closer rela-
tionship with boats.
My only problem ever since has been a feeling of guilt
that my work was too easy. I love boats and boating
people. That affection has paid me rewards way beyond
the financial security it has also provided.
The moral's obvious. You have an odds-on chance for
success and happiness working at what you enjoy most -
what comes naturally! And if it's not just frivolous, your
life's work could well be what you now consider just a
pastime. It's certainly -worth thinking about, anyway!"
