As Syria Forms Stat~e

Arab Revolution Produces
Power Strugg e in Mi- East
YU g
LONDON (M)-Syria's bid to break away from the United Arab
Republic yesterday plunged the quarreling Arab world into even
greater turmoil.
It also signaled a bitter new power struggle between President
Gamal Abdel Nasser and other Mideastern leaders who may defy
any moves to fulfill his battered dream of a United Arab empire fed
by Cairo.
These were the conclusions of Western authorities here after two,
major developments came in the wake of the clash between Damascus
and Cairo:
No Bargain

"rebels, but would not enforce un-

In Bizerte
BIZERTE (OP) - France signed
an agreement with Tunisia last
night providing for a return to
conditions that prevailed in the,
Bizerte area before bloody fight-
ing broke out between forces of,
the two nations last July.
The agreement stipulates that
French soldiers will be pulled back
from 'sectors they have been oc-
cupying in Bizerte city and the
surrounding countryside. French
officials emphasized that France
will retain full access to roads
linking the big French military
base with the city.
, The preliminary agreement
opens the way for renewal of dip-
lomatic relations between the two
countries. This would permit ne-
gotiations 'on a ' timetable ,for
evacuation of the Bizerte naval
base by the French.
French President Charles de
Gaulle has said France cannot give
up the base immediately in view
of the tensel international situa-
tion. Tunisian President Habib
Bourguiba has in turn said he will
not .insist on immediate evacua-
tion as long as the world situa-
tion is dangerous.
Violence flared when Tunisia
sought to set up roadblocks along
the road from Bizerte to the base.
Tunisian officials claim about 1,-
300 Tunisians were killed when
French forces, backed with air,
and sea support, fought their way
into the city.

ion, with military power.
2. King Hussein of Jordan rec-
ognized the anti-Nasser regime
set up by Syrian army men.
Britain, meantime, made it pub-
licly plain the major Western
powers are likely to wait for the
dust to settle before determining
their attitude toward the Syrian
breakaway regime.
"It is premature for us to con-
sider recognition of the Syrian
rebel .authorities. The facts on
which we should have to base our
recognition are not available to
us," the Foreign Office said.
This means the British are not
yet sure if the rebels are in ef-
fectivercontrol of the country, if
they are in a position to fulfill
Syria's international commitments
-and indeed if they want to be
recognized now.
The Foreign Office statement
was made in the knowledge that
King Hussein had rushed forward
to give his small country's politi-
cal backing-in the form. of rec-
ognition-to the rebels.
This suggested that Hussein--
often accused by Nasser as a
British puppet-had acted on his
own and on the assumption that
the Syrian rebels will win out in
the end. For Hussein would not
lightly risk the wrath of Nasser,
who has campaigned in the past
for the downfall of the young
king and the absorption of Jor-
dan into the UAR. .
Now the big question is wheth-
er other of Nasser's antagonists
in the Middle East-and there are
several-will dare to copy Hus-

To Leave
golese government yesterday gave
newly arrived East German diplo-
mats notice to get out.
A foreign ministry communique
said they had not been invited
and added that the government
"does not consider it useful now
to establish diplomatic relations
with East Germany."
The East Germansrformerly
were accredited to the rebel left-
ist regime in Stanleyville and came
to Leopoldville with other Com-
munist bloc diplomats after An-
toine Gizenga joined Premier
Cyrille Adoula's central govern-
ment here.
According to government sourc-
es, official acceptance of Soviet
diplomats who came to Leopold-
ville from Stanleyville also is be-
ing delayed. They have been ad-
vised it would be preferable if
they first returned to Moscow and
applied for accreditation through
normal diplomatic channels.
So far, only the Yugoslav mis-
sion has been officially accredit-
ed, of the diplomats formerly rep-
resented in Stanleyville.

BEIRUT (A)-Syria won inde-
pendence by force of arms from
President Gamal Abdel Nasser's
United Arab Republic Thursday
as a new conservative Syrian re-
gime promised elections and con-
stitutional rule.

decision not to fight. It was a

The new Syrian premier, Dr.
Mamoun Kuzbari, a scholarly,
conservative lawyer and law pro-
fessor, proclaimed Syria inde-
dependent and declared the gov-
ernment emerging from a two-
day Syrian officers' revolt has the
Syrian people's full support.
In a 15-minute broadcast over
Damascus radio Kuzbari said the
revolutionary command in Da-
mascus has "finished its mission
at this point and has returned
to the normal functions of de-
fending the country."
Kuzbari promised that his all-
civilian government will "prove
itself true to the aims and support
of the people"-apparently mean-
ing elections. He also promised "a
true and democratic life" for

Before making his speech, Kuz-

forces that had been dispatched to
crush the revolt. He admitted

A board spokesman said the de-

precedent in the 18 other states
with such laws, although it ob-
viously would carry weight. The
decision in similar cases arising
in the other states, he said, would
depend on the circumstances and
the phrasing of the state law.
About 6 per cent of all wage
contracts in the country now con-

substitute for compulsory mem-

honors heretofore given in Sweden
only to royalty.
Regal simplicity marked the last
journey of the aloof and dedicat-

Wrapped in the blue and gold
flag of his native Sweden, his cof-

An order went out from the gov-

of silence at sunset. Everything
