That would be by Feb. 1, 1962,
the fourth anniversary of the
merger of Syria and Egypt in the
United Arab Republic.
Syria's role was that of junior
partner from the start. The ar-

claimed its uprising was aimed at
"eliminating tyranny and dicta-
torship and wiping out corruption
and exploitation."
Reiterated Brotherhood Theme
Nevertheless, the old profession
of desire for Arab brotherhood
was reiterated in Damascus and
in some other capitals of the Arab
sphere. Kassem, no friend of Nas-

He urged that all Arab nations
work together "for the achieve-

Implying that Syria wants re-

his government is ready to coop-

and Syria represented by a joint

Kennedy Signs Foreign Aid Measure;
Nkrumah Continues Cabinet Shakeup

Katanga government yesterday
announced a series of agreements
with the United Nations consti-
tuting a. step in bringing the life
of Katanga's war-torn capital
nearer to normal.
A government communique said
UN delegates on the cease-fire
commission had agreed on grad-
ual evacuation from strategic
points they hold in the city, be-
ginning with the Lido swimming
pool and a downtown hospital. It
added that UN technicians are
repairing the central post office,
which is now a United Nations
fortress. It will be opened to the
public once repairs are completed.
The agreement was reached at
a meeting of the cease-fire com-
mission Friday, the government
said. It includes a provision for
normal airline activity to resume
at Elisabethville airport, another
United Nations strong point,
within a short time.
Foreign Minister Evariste Kim-
ba "has obtained an assurance
that the United Nations will not
resume hostilities," the communi-
que added. "Consequently the gov-
ernment asks the population to
keep calm."
No progress was reported to-
ward exchange of prisoners. This
question will be taken up when
the cease-fire commission returns
available for

from an inspection of military po-
sitions in North Katanga.
The chief UN representative in
Katanga, Conor Cruise O'Brien,
said later no formal agreement
had been reached on evacuating
the airfield and the post office
but he expressed hope they could
resume public service under UN

Ministers Fail To Reach
Accord on Negotiations


NEW YORK AP)--Secretary of
State Dean Rusk and Soviet For-
eign Minister Andrei Gromyko
concluded their New York talks
on the Berlin crisis yesterday with-
out agreement to start formal ne-
gotiations but with an understand-
ing they will meet again in Wash-
ington next week.
Both men reported after a 42-
hour meeting that the discussions
here have been "useful."
Gromyko, a United States
spokesman said, will probably see
President John F. Kennedy as well
as Rusk when he visits Washing-

ton. The day for his Washington
trip is yet to be fixed.
The plan for continuing the
talks in Washington offsets the
fact that in approximately 13
hours of meetings here Rusk and
Gromyko failed to arrive at a for-
mula for detailed negotiations on
a Berlin compromise settlement.
It is still possible, and Western
officials clearly hope, that an ac-
ceptable basis for an East-West
foreign ministers' conference may
yet be developed next week.
In the course of the meetings,
which began 10 days ago,* Rusk
sought to impress on Gromyko
that the Western powers are de-
termined to defend their Berlin
position, to keep their forces in
Berlin, and to preserve their rights
of access to the city even if that
means using force.
May Precipitate War
Some top Western authorities
here now believe that Premier
Nikita Khrushchev is beginning to
understand that if he pushes his
Berlin demands too far he may
precepitate a major war.
At the same time Rusk is under-
stood to have emphasized to Gro-
myko that the United States and
its allies are interested in a com-
promise settlement if a suitable
formula for negotiations can be
The United States secretary and
British Foreign Secretary Lord
Home are thinking in terms of an
East-West foreign ministers' meet-
ing in November or December.'
To Sign Treaty
Khrushchev has declared he will
sign a peace treaty with East Ger-
many this year to give that coun-
try sovereign -control of Berlin's
supply lines from West Germany.
Khrushchev also claims that
once the treaty is in effect the
Western powers must accept the
fact that West Berlin itself is
on Communist East German ter-
Rusk is understood to have em-
phasized to Gromyko that the
Western powers have no intention
of negotiating with East Germany
on their rights to maintain troops
in West Berlin.
