Britain Hits Williams' African Action

LONDON (') - G. Mennen Wil-
liams was accused in Parliament
yesterday of meddling in Britain's
African affairs.
A member of the governing Con-
servative party urged the matter
be called to President John F.
Kennedy's attention.
The storm blew up over a re-
mark Monday in British Kenya by
the assistant United States sec-
retary of state for African affairs
endorsing "Africa for the Afri-
cans," a slogan of militant African
nationalists. His statement pre-
viously had provoked angry words
in South Africa's parliament.
In Uganda, Williams paused on
his fact-finding tour to reiterate
what he said in Kenya Thursday
--that he meant whites as well as
Negroes when he referred to Af-
rica for the Africans.
In Africa, the word "African"
generally refers to the original in-
habitants of the continent, in
other words the Negroes.
But British critics were not mol-
lified by Williams' explanation.
Anthony Fell, a Conservative, in-
troduced the Williams' question in
the House of Commons. Fell said
he wanted to know if Prime Min-
ister Harold Macmillan intends to
make representations to Kennedy
about William's "interference in
her Majesty's government's colon-
ial and commonwealth affairs in

HAVANA (A') - Fidel Castro
yesterday moved economic czar
Ernesto Guevara into his cabinet
as chief of a new super-ministry of
Y ndustry and reshuffled otherposts
to tighten state' control over all
phases of Cuban economic life.
Guevara, an Argentine - born
leftist who fought in the hills
wth; Castro, was given broad
powers to reorganize and develop
this island nation's industria life
along lines some sources here re-
ported were drafted by Cuban and
Communist experts last year in
Includes Sports
State control was even extended
tq all sports activities through the
creation of a national institute of
sports, physical education and re-
creation. Mayor Jose Llanusa of
Havana, who recently returned
from a long tour behind the Iron
Curtain, was named director.
The Cuban cabinet, in a long
session extending into the, early
morning hours, also named Raul
Ceprero Bonilla, former minister
of commerce, as chief of the
national bank.
When Guevara headed the bank,
he used it to cut Cuba's economic
ties with the United States and
connect them with the Communist
bloc.. Under Ceprero 'Bonilla, one
of the few remaining ministers of
Castro's original cabinet, the
bank's capitalization was decreed
at 100 million pesos ($100 million
at the ofcial exchange rate). This
represents a rise from 25 million,
presumably covered by assets of
nationalized United States and
Canadian banks.
New Ministries
The cabinet shakeup involved
creation of two new .ministries in
addition to Guevara's. They are
foreign trade and interior com-
merce. The ministries of com-
merce and agriculture were abol-
ished. Direction of agriculture had
long since been taken over by the
government's agrarian reform in-
The government also revitalized
;he central planning board to over-
see development of Cuba's four-
year economic plan starting in
1962. Castro, as prime minister,
'heads the board and his brother
Raul, who Is also defense minister,
becomes deputy chairman.
Foreign experts said Castro ap-
peared to be reshaping his regime's
administrative machinery into a
form similar to that used in Com-
munist countries.
Hodges Urges
Swift Action
On Areas Aid
WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary

Supporting Kennedy's proposals,
Hodges sought to quiet concern
lest industries be pulled away from
'some economically healthy areas in
the course of pumping life into
ailing regions.
Hodges was leadoff witness as
the banking group began hearings
on the depressed areas proposal-
one of those near the top of Ken-
nedy's priority list of anti-
recession easures.

He backed the proposed loans
and grants ' to encourage indus-
trial growth as the, best approach
for spurring the recovery of chron-
ically depressed regions.
Without listing them, Hodges
said that as of January a total

World News Roundup
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Senate Republican leader Everett M. Dirksen
of Illinois assailed as "unfair" yesterday President John F. Kennedy's
statement that the former administration resources policies took a.
toll in human life.
Dirksen told the Senate that Kennedy's statement, in a message
to congress Thursday, "cast a reflection on former President Dwight
D. Eisenhower and a very serious one."
The Kennedy message said the new administration reJects the
"no new starts" policy put into effect by Eisenhower, and added:
"Such a policy denied the resource requirements and potential
on which our economic growth hinges; and took a heavy toll in

Rusk canceled a news confer-
ence which had been scheduled
for shortly before his White'House
appointment. Presidential Press
Secretary Pierre Salinger said,
however, there was no connection
between the Kennedy-Rusk meet-
ing and the news conference can-
'No Crisis'
Rusk spent more than an hour
at the White House. Afterwards
he told newsmen "there was no
special crisis" and that he called
off his news conference because
"I just got jammed up with a lot
of appointments."
The Soviet-Vietnamese airlift of
arms 'and other aid to Laotian
rebels has been a major concern
here since it got underway in mid-
December. State Department Press
Officer Lincoln White reported
early this week that the flights
had stopped over the weekend.
White noted at the time that
heavy rains were drenching the
mountainous southeast A s i a n
kingdom, but declined to specu-
late why the Red airlift stopped.
Hopes Dampened
The airlift renewal further
dampened hopes for a quick solu-
tion to the Laotian crisis-hopes
which had temporarily risen fol-

against it.

Cites 'Mess'
In Construction
WASHINGTON ()-The chair-
man of a House appropriations
subcommittee said yesterday
"things are in a mess" in the
program to construct bases for
Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.
Rep. Harry R. Sheppard (R-
Calif) suggested more centraliza-
tion of authority is needed to im-
prove the Air Force program.
Discussing a closed-door hear-
ing on the program, Sheppard said
in an interview "there are too
many people in too many in-
decisive positions, either unable or
unwilling to make decisions."
"We have got to have one man
on top to run the show," he said.
"It is getting too far behind."
A military subcommittee headed
by Sheppard is expected to re-
commend next week that the mis-
sile base program be revised and
put under the direction of a single
person instead of being directed
by different people in different
branches of the armed services.
