in a Soviet decision to push ahead with Communist expansion policies

President Juan Bosch called on
the Organization of American
States yesterday to investigate his
charges that Haitian President
Francois Duvalier's regime violates
human rights and international
In urging the OAS to expand
its investigation of conditions in
Haiti beyond what is now planned,
Bosch told a news conference, "I
consider that the OAS must go

Meanwhile in Washington, the
peace-making task force of the
OAS plans tentatively to return
to Haiti Monday to seek an end
to the cris's between that country
and the Dominican Republic.
Ambassador Alberto Zuleta An-
gel of Colombia, chairman of the.
task force, reported this to news-
men yesterday after Haitian For-
eign Minister Rene Chalmers sug-
gested that the group "await the
assent" of Haitian Duvalier be-
fore malting the trip.
Chalmers' suggestion came in a
message to the OAS council pres-
ident, Costa Rican Amoassador
Zuleta said the task force does
not have to seek Haitian govern-
ment approval of the mission be-
cause there are provisions for such
activities in the Rio de Janeiro
treaty for hemisphere security.

Instead, he said, he expects the
Kremlin to conclude that it has
not been moving forward very
rapidly in the achievement of
Communist revolutionary aims
worldwide. On balance, he predict-
ed the Soviet Union will be more
difficult to deal with during the
remainder of this year.
The official saw no serious evi-
dence that Soviet Premier Nikita
S. Khrushchev is being undercut
in his position as Soviet leader.
But he said Khrushchev is faced
with both internal economic prob-
lems and difficulties abroad, in-
cluding results disappointing to
the Russians from Soviet aid in
places like Guinea, Mali, Iraq and
The Soviet differences with Red
China are another problem facing
Khrushchev. The official suggest-
ed that the Kremlin is thinking
seriously about the possibility of
closing the Moscow-Peking gap
and. revising its tactics in South-
But he expects that a searching
appraisal of policy now under way
will result in Russia concentrating
on its revolutionary goals among
the "have-not" nations, rather
than concentrating on furthering
the revolution at home.
That has been one of the sore
points between Moscow and Pe-
king. Red China, denouncing Mos-
cow as cowardly, has demanded
that Russia press communism.
Swing Toward China
He said the Indonesian Com-
munist party appears to be swing-
ing sharply toward the Red Chi-
nese, who espouse a hard line to-
ward the West.
In patching up its troubles with
Red China, Russia may also revise
its tactics in Southeast Asia, the
official suggested, which could
mean more Soviet support for
Communists in Laos and South
The official said there is room
for United States initiative toward
the East European Communist
countries, which he said are eyeing
the possibility of closer dealings
with the West and are looking for
He suggested that barriers
against increased trade with these
countries be relaxed.
He noted congressional opposi-
tion to trade with these countries,
which has included a ban on most-
favored-nation trade treatment
toward Poland and Yugoslavia.
Last night, President Marble de-
clined to comment on the move to
seek the charter.
The board wants the charter as

the future, a fourth year, Or-

The second, a plan to establish
a branch of the University at

were raised by legislators and

If the new proposal goes
through, it, would mean that the
community college would have to
be abolished, Orlebeke pointed out.
"The legal position on the com-
munity college is that of an in-
stitution authorized by the people
in the Midland, Bay and Saginaw
counties. No private group could
make it a private institution, he
In order to obtain the charter,
the board would have to file an
application with the Corporation
and Securities Commission and
the Department of Public Instruc-
tion, Orlebeke said. "As I under-
stand it the board has not yet
taken a step to file, but is con-
templating such a move.
"President Marble has proceeded
to the point at which he knows
exactly what steps he will take,"
Since the proposal requires no
state funds nor backing from any
state-supported institution, the
action would be entirely indepen-
dent, he said.

LONDON - Britain a n d t h e
Soviet Union clashed yesterday,
over the Vientiane police and the
International Control Committee.'
while in Vietiane the United States
ambassador declared' that the
United States will never let Laos
stand alone in facing its enemies.
The two nations, which served
as co-chairmen of the 1962 Lao-
tian Peace Conference at Geneva,
each accused the other of acting
in violation of the Geneva accords.
The dispute burst into the open
when the Russians published the
terms of a letter Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei A. Gromyko pro-'
posed sending to Laotian Premier
"Immediate measures by the
coalition government to insure
security, in Vietiane would be an
important step on the way tore-
sumption of normal activities of
the coalition government and con-
solidation of mutual trust between
the three political forces.
"Of great importance would be.
the formation of a joint police
force on the basis of agreement
reached earlier by the three po-
litical forces, and neutralization
of the country." it said.
The rightists now control the
police in Yietiane and the leftists
do not like it.
OThe most pressing need in
Laos is not to publicize unsub-
stantiated accusations, but to
bring machinery of the Interna-
Control Commission into the full-
est play to prevent further fight-
ing in the Plaine des Jarres.. .
"It is most regrettable that the
Polish member of the commission
and the pro-Communist party in
the royal government of Laos have
been devotfng their efforts to pre-
vent this machinery working."
In Vientiane, United States Am-
bassador Leonard Unger told the
pro-Communist Pathet Lao the
United States never will leave
Laos standing alone "to face its
enemies from within and abroad.
"The United States has no in-
tention of stepping aside and al-
lowing the enemies of this govern-
ment to thwart and corrupt the
Geneva accords." Unger declared.
Meanwhile, Souvanna called on
the 14 nations that signed the
Geneva accords to enforce. their
guarantees of neutrality for Laos.
