ALGERIA:
Williams Confers with Rebels
In First U.S. Direct Contact

TUNIS (A?--The United States
yesterday brushed aside French
sensitivities and established the
first open, high level contact with
the leaders of the Algerian Na-
tionalist rebellion.
0. Mennen Williams; assistant
secretary of state for African af-
fairs, met for more than three
hours with Algerian Rebel Foreign
Minister Saad Dahlab and Infor-

>I

mation Minister Mohammed Ya-

I zid.

The meeting was seen by some
observers as a determined move
by the United States to preserve
some western influence among the
rebel leadership, which has been
swinging toward ,the Soviet bloc.
Rebel Interpret
The rebel government in exile,
based in Tunis, interpreted the

move as the first step toward
eventual recognition. Algerian reb-
el sources said Williams and his
advisors acted as if they consid-
ered the rebels as Algeria's future
rulers.
The move is bound to have an
impact on the Algerian problem.
The meeting took place at a time
of growing tension in Algeria and
preparations for new, rebel-called
demonstrations.

Crysler
Foresees
No Strike
DETROI T(M-UAW President
Walter P. Reuther brushed aside
talk of a strike yesterday as he
showed up at Chrysler Corp. for
intensified negotiations on a new
labor contract.
.Asked about setting a strike
deadline, he said "we, are not go-
ing to make this decision now."
Reuther said the union will re-
evaluate the situation at the end
of the week.
Reuther indicated Chrysler,
which has made no net profits so
far this year, will be asked to ac-
cept the pattern established in
contracts with General Motors'
Corp. and the Ford Motor Co.
No Subsidization
"We don't intend to have Chrys-
ler workers subsidize the corpora-
tion by accepting substandard
conditions," Reuther said. "When
Chrysler buys, a ton of steel, it
doesn't get a discount because the
company has problems."
Reuther said he was trying for
a quick settlement with Chrysler.
His union struck GM for ' two
weeks and Ford for 13 days be-
fore wrapping up new three-year
contracts.
Reuther made his first appear-
ance at Chrysler since the start
of the auto industry's contract ne-
gotiations three and a half months
ago. He said yesterday's session
was to set up a schedule of pro-
cedure to expedite the negotia-
tions.
Move Quickly
Reuther said the union would
try to speed up settlement on
working conditions at Chrysler
plants. So far there has been
none. Problems at the plant level
brought on the GM and Ford
strikes.j
Soviets Announce
Test to Citizens
LONDON (A) - Moscow Radio
and other Soviet information
agencies got around last night to
reporting Nikita S. Khrushchev's
announcement that a 50-megaton
nuclear bomb will be exploded by
Russia at the end of the month.
Thirteen hours after Moscow
Radio announced the Congress
had convened and that Khrush-
chev was speaking, it carried the
first mention of the Khrushchev
statement on the bomb. The of-
ficial Tass new agency came ,in
a full hour later with its own sum-
mary.

Congo Warns
UN Comnand
UNITED NATIONS R)) - The
Congo yesterday blasted the Unit-
ed Nations command anew for ne-
gotiating a cease-fire with break-
away Katanga province and hint-
ed it might seek Soviet help if the
United Nations fails to end the
secession.
Congo Foreign Minister Justin
Bomboko issued the warning a few
hours after the Soviet Union ac-
cused the United Nations Congo
command of by-passing the Secur-
ity Council in negotiating a cease-
fire.
Bomboko told a news confer-
ence, "we avoided making bilater-
al agreements with certain powers
because we wanted to preverit the
cold war penetrating the Congo,
but if UN action fails, we are pre-
pared to take any means, to ac-
cept any assistance to safeguard
the territorial integrity of the
Congo."

End of Month
Set for Blast
Khrushchev Reveals
Plans at Congress
MOSCOW {P)--Premier Nikita
S. Khrushchev announced yes-
terday the Soviet Union is going
to explode a 50 megaton nuclear
bomb at the end of this month.
A 50 megaton blast is equivalent
to 50 million tons of TNT and
about 2,500 times more powerful
than the first atomic bomb ex-
ploded at Hiroshima.
He told the opening session of
the 22nd Soviet Communist Par-
ty Congress the weapon will be
triggered on Oct. 30 or 31 and
would be the last of the current
test series, which began Sept. 1.
The series has included a score of
explosions, the largest previous
one about 10 megatons.
No Larger
Khrushchev's announcement
closed out the possibility that a
100 megaton bomb would be test-
ed at this time. He declared:
"We have a 100 million ton
bomb, but we do not intend to ex-
plode it."
"If we happen to explode it in
the wrong place, we might break
our own windows," he explained to
the nearly 5,000 delegates at the
Party Congress in the Kremlin's
giant new auditorium.
He added, in a reference to the
Diety in whom he says he has no
belief: "May God grant that we
never have to explode such a
bomb."
Reneges Hint
Khrushchev thus backed off
from the test of the superbomb
at which he hinted on Aug. 31
when he announced the Soviet
Union was breaking the atomic
powers' moratorium on nuclear
testing. He said at that time So-
viet scientists had "worked out"
'projects for the construction of a
100 meg'aton bomb.
Khrushchev's announcement of
the forthcoming 50 megaton blast
was made in a departure from the.
text of his six-hour, 20-minute
speech. It was heard by western
correspondents who were cleared
from the hall for early parts of
the proceedings but admitted
again when Khrushchev began to
speak.
Hours later, neither the official
Soviet news agency/ nor Moscow
radio had reported to the Russian
people the statement about the 50
mnillion ton bomb.
This was the first time the Rus-
sians have given advance notice
of a nuclear test, and the official 1
agencies perhaps waited for guid-
ance.
