in the atmosphere.!
United StatesnAmbassador Ad-

warning to the United Nations As-

PARIS (P)-Planeloads of Algerians, many of them nursing band-

Security forces, reinforced by about 3,000 riot police and gen-
darmes, took stern measures to prevent any new turnouts by Algerian
nationalists. One rebel chieftain in Nanterre, scene of a bloody clash
