Adenauer Rebuffs Bidault Apj
BONN ()-Put on the spot by a quirk of French politics, Chan- }
cellor Konrad Adenauer yesterday rebuffed an appeal from his old
friend Georges Bidault for asylum as the fugitive foe of a new friend,
French President Charles de Gaulle.
But Adenauer's government said it would have no objection if 4
Bavarian state authorities gave refuge to Bidault "under certain
conditions." It did not spell out these conditions. A highly informed

Takes Step
To Heal Rift
LONDON (M)-British Prime
Minister Harold Macmillan em-
barked yesterday on an attempt
to repair the rift between Britain
and France and bolster the mili-
tary, economic and political
strength of Western Europe.
A is new move, in its formative
stage as yet, was undertaken with
the tacit blessing of the United
Its major aim is to prevent the
initiative for shaping the future
of Western Europe from falling by
default to President Charles de
Gaulle of France.
Diplomatic sources said Mac-
millan specifically wants to keep
open the prospect that Britain can
join the Common Market at some
later date, after dissipating French
objections on this subject.
Macmillan also wants European
members of the North Atlantic
alliance to push ahead with the
multiateral nuclear force idea
which he and President John F.
Kennedy developed at their Nassau
conference last December, inform-
ants said.
A broad outline of Macmillan's
objectives was discussed at a For-
eign Office meeting yesterday pre-
sided over by Deputy Foreign Mini
ister Edward Heath. More than 20
British ambassadors and senior of-
ficials from key posts in Europe
were called in for this conference.
This is related to a second move

source said the most important
one was that Bidault desist from
all political activity.
Switzerland eliminated itself as
as possible haven. A Swiss govern-
ment spokesman said both the po-
litical leader of the French right-
wing, anti-Gaullist Secret Army
Organization and his chief aide,
Jacques Soustelle, wouldn't even
be allowed to cross the frontier.
Friendly Country
"They are leading a conspiracy
against the legal government of
France, a friendly neighboring
country, and Switzerland cannot
grant asylum to persons active in
such a movement," he said.
Austria remained a possibility
in case Bidault is expelled.
The dapper, 63-year-old French
resistance leader, who formed
close ties with Adenauer as for-
eign minister and Premier in the
years after World War II, was lo-
cated by police at a Bavarian hide-
out Sunday. He had dispatched a
hand-written letter to the Chan-
cellor asking him personally for
political refuge.

Krueger said Adenauer, apparent-

intention, sent back the letter
But the Deputy 'Press Chief
pointed out that under, German
law the decision on whether
Bidault should be given asylum or
expelled was up to local authorities

Break Of f
LONDON (P)-The Somali gov-
ernment moved yesterday to break
off diplomatic relations with Brit-
ain because London refused to
hand over a strip of northern
Kenya claimed by Somalia.
The British government express-
ed regret and hope that the au-
thorities in Mogadishu, Somalia's
capital, will reconsider.
A dispatch from Mcgadishu said
Premier Abdirascid Ali Scher-I
marche asked the National Assem-
bly in emergency session to ap-
prove the break. A debate was
opened immediately. The tenor of
speeches indicated the assembly
will approve.
The British attitude is that the
area's future may be discussed'
later when Kenya becomes in-
dependent, but that other in-
terested parties such as Ethiopia
should also be allowed to express
their views.
Meanwhile, precautionary ineas-
ures were being taken in Nairobi,
Kenya's capital, to protect the
northern frontier region. Gov.
Malcolm MacDonald held urgent
discussions with his defense and
police chiefs. Then it was an-
nounced that men of the general
service unit-a semi-military force
-were being dispatched to the
Northern District.
Kennedy Asks
For Speed-U
On Tax Plans
WASHINGTON OP) - President
John F. Kennedy prodded Con-
gress yesterday, to get moving on
his tax cut and other economic
proposals to curb rising unemploy-
ment, a condition he views as a na-
tional disgrace.
The President plugged for his
pending programs in transmitting
the first annual manpower report
to Congress. It describes an econ-
omy growing steadily more effi-
cient and less able to provide jobs
for a raidly increasing population.
Underscoring the President's
message and a separate Labor De-
partment manpower report is the
rise of unemployment from 5.8
per cent to 6.1 per cent of the
work force in February.

Nasser's first achievement in
Arab political unity, the 1958 mer-
ger of Syria and Egypt, was shat-
tered by an anti-Nasser coup in
Syria in September, 1961. Since
then, however, pro-Nasser military
men have gained the upper hand
again in Syari and taken over in
Iraq and Yemen.
Thus far there has been no dra-
matic move in Cairo such as in
Damascus, where an Iraqi delega-
tion is publicly predicting that
Syria, Iraq and the UAR will defi-
nitely unite.
Shabib flew to Cairo from Da-
mascus, where he presented the
Iraqi proposals to the Syrian lead-
ers who took over that country in
a bloodless coup Friday.
Shabib's Visit
Shabib's visit started specula-
tion that he is opening a way for
a summit session soon of Nasser,
Syrian Premier Salah Bitar and
Iraqi President Abdel Salam Aref.
Informed sources in Cairo said it
is possible that such a meeting
would be discussed by Nasser and
The sources said it is certain
that further meetings and consul-
tations will be necessary to con-
sider problems raised by the Iraqi
proposal to set up a joint military
command and political planning
coordination organization.
Iraqi Deputy Premier Ali Saleh
El Saadi acknowledged at a news
conference in Damascus that Nas-
ser had not made his views known
on the Iraqi proposals for a union
or federation.
But he emphasized that the.
