Viet Nam Announces
Reform Program
U.S. Financed Development Plan
May Aid Fight Against Red Rebels
WASHINGTON (W)-The United States and South Viet Nam an-
nounced yesterday sweeping reforms designed to raise Vietnamese
living standards and thus strengthen the people's will to resist Com-
munist aggression.
The 11-point, joint program is seen as an answer to the frequent-
ly heard claim that Red guerrillas owe much of their success to re-
luctance of the South Vietnamese to fight for a regime they feel has
done little for them.
U.S. officials would not disclose how much money this country
will put into the drive for economic and social reforms. But it is was

Resolves To End Occupation

PATNA, India ()--The presi-
dent of India's ruling Congress
Party declared yesterday India is
determined to end Chinese Com-
munist and Pakistani occupation
of Indian soil.
Red China holds northern bor-
der areas claimed by India, and
Pakistan holds part of the north-
ern Kashmir State in dispute be-
tween India and Pakistan.
President Neelam SanjivaRed-
dy's statement drew loud cheers
at the opening session of the par-

ty's annual meeting. So did his
statement that Goa "has now
come back to the motherland and
nothing can change it."
Confirms Move
In New Delhi, a foreign minis-
try spokesman said Portuguese
Premier Antonio De Oliveira Sal-
azar's policy statement on Goa
confirmed the correctness of In-
dia's military action to run the
Portuguese off the Arabian sea-
coast of India.


Katanga Assembl Sets
Secret Commissions
ELISABETHVILLE (P)-The Katanga Assembly yesterday hand-
ed to secret commissions the task of deciding what to do about ending
the secession from the Congo.
The Assembly, convening a day late with 35 of its 72 seats filled,
heard in silence an opening speech by President Moise Tshombe who
bitterly assailed the Leopoldville government, the Congo's provisional
constitution and the United Nations.
He did not, in so many words, however, recommend that the
Assembly reject the pact he made with Congo Premier Cyrille Adoula

"at Kitona on Dec. 21 to end Ka-
tanga's secession.
No Business
The Assembly had been called
into session Tuesday but failed to
do any business when only 19
members showed up.
On the ground that greater se-
curity could be provided for Ba-
luba as well as Tshombe deputies,
Congo President Joseph Kasavubu
called the Assembly to meet Tues-
day at Kamina, a UN base in
North Katanga. So far there has
been no word of any deputies
meeting there.
Following Tshombe's address,
the Assembly went into secret ses-
sion, and a spokesman announc-
ed later that foreign affairs and
political commissions had been
appointed to consider Tshombe's
treaty with Adoula.
Members Appointed.
The spokesman said all 35 mem-
bers attending were appointed to
one or the other of the commis-
sions, and that these would be sit-
ting in secret for the next day or
He suggested that in the mean-
time the UN help bring to Elisa-
bethville as many deputies as pos-
sible from Leopoldville. He said
some opposition deputies had been
in Leopoldville for more than aa
In his speech, Tshombe accused
the UN of "odious aggression"1

U.S. Sending
Aid Mission
To Country
Restore Diplomatic,
Economic Relations
minican Republic was restored to
good standing in the family of the
Americas yesterday,
The council of the Organization
of American States lifted the eco-
nomic and diplomatic sanctions
imposed more than a year ago
during the dictatorship of Rafael
L. Trujillo.
President John F Kennedy an-
ticipated the action by moving to
include the Dominican Republic
in the Alliance for Progress pro-
The White House announced in
Palm Beach that a United States
mission will leave for Santo Do-
mingo Sunday to confer with

Kennedy announced some time
ago the United States would re-
sume diplomatic relations with the
Dominican Republic as soon as the
sanctions were lifted.
The diplomatic-economic boy-
cott was voted in 1960 after Tru-
jillo was implicated in a plot to
assassinlate President Romulo Bet-
ancourt of Venezuela.
The sanctions included a break
in diplomatic relations and an
embargo on arms shipments to
the Dominican Republic.
One year ago yesterday the ac-
tion was extended to include a
prohibition on shipments of pe-
troleum and petroleum products
and trucks and truck parts.
Developments leading up to yes-
terday's 20-nation vote included
the installation on New Year's Day
of a new Civilian Council of Gov-
ernment in the Dominican Repub-
The OAS council said the coun-
try no longer poses a threat to
hemispheric peace.,
Cuba's delegate abstained from
voting. He charged the removal of
sanctions was engineered by the
United States and contended the'
present Dominican regime does
not represent the island's people.
"Trujilloism without Trujillo,"
he called it.

Clashes Hit
Algeriai Ctes
ALGIERS (P)-Continuing waves
of violence between Algerians and
Europeans left more than a dozen
persons dead and at least 40
wounded yesterday in various parts
of Algeria.
Officials in Oran counted up
the day's clashes and reported a
toll of nine dead, including one
French soldier, and at least 28
Both in Oran and in Algiers,
the capital, authorities seemed
powerless to control the outbreaks
between independence - minded
North Africans and European
settlers determined to keep Al-
geria French. At least 72 persons
have died in the 4-day-old iew
One of the dead in Oran was a
young Moslem news vendor cut
down by a group of young Euro-
peans and stabbed to death. An-
other of the Oran victims was a
Moslem city councillor.
In another incident in Oran, a
band of eight Moslems fired on a
group of French troops in a cafe,
killing one soldier and wounding
another soldier and a police offi-
cer. The troops returned the fire,,
killing one of the Moslems. The;
others were captured.

"Increased U.S. assistance for
both immediate economic and so-
cial measures and longer-range
development reflects the confi-
dence of the U.S. government in
the future of free Viet Nam."
The economic and social meas-
ures included projects in educa-
tion and health, road-building,
communications, and agriculture.
To Investigate
Aid Charges
Secretary-General U Thant, was
invited yesterday to look person-
ally into charges that aid is being
sent across Northern Rhodesia's
border to the Congo's secessionist
Katanga Province.
Thant gave no immediate indi-
cation as to whether he would ac-
cept the invitation to visit the
area where his predecessor, Dag
Hammarskjold, was killed in a
plane crash.
The invitation was extended by
British delegate Sir Patrick Dean
on behalf of the Rhodesia-Nyasa-
land Federation prime minister,
Sir Roy Welensky.

and medical care legislation enacted this session of Congress.
As Assistant Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare for
legislative affairs he is lobbying for enactment of bills on these mat-
ters and also heading a task force to study medical care needs.
Cohen rates prospects for enactment of college aid legislation

Kennedy Administration is giving
"great priority" to it.
He and Secretary of Health, Ed-

bill passed by March 15, enabling
