Negotiation, Force if Necessary
LEOPOLDVILLE (M)-Open war flared up in the Congo yesterday
with Congolese troops launching a seaborne operation and fighting
bitter street hattles and mortar duels with United Nations soldiers.
Planeloads of UN reinforcements flew into the Congo's narrow
-Atlantic seabord after Congolese swarmed ashore from boats to cap-
ture the little port of Banana from its UN garrison.
UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold was immediately in-
formed and he promptly cabled orders that the situation be restored-
by negotiation, or force if necessary.

also indicated the Albian party
membership ih ad decided on open
defiance of the Soviet Union.
At the same time, Communist
Yugoslavia took a step that might
lead to severance of diplomatic
relations with Albania. Because of
alleged mistreatment of Yugoslav
diplomats in Tirana, Yugoslavia
has decided to reduce its legation
staff to what it called the strict-
est minimum.
In addition, the Yugoslav gov-
ernment called in the Albanian
acting minister and gave him a
note protesting spy activities by
Albiana. Tanjug, the Yugoslav
news agency, said the Albanian of-
ficial refused to accept the note.
The protest was in connection with
the trial of two Albanians sen-
tenced Friday for spying.
Teacher Sues
To Rergain Job
CHICAGO, (R) -- A professor
discharged from the University
of Illinois for publicly condoning
pre-marital sex relations sued for
re-instatement yesterday.
The suit, filed, in Superior Court
of Cook County (Chicago), asked
that Leo F. Koch he put back in
his former job as an assistant pro-
fessor of biology and granted
$5,900-one year's pay under the
contract which was to have ex-
pired Aug. 31, 1961.
Koch's employment was termi-
nated by the university's Trustees,
effective Aug. 31, 1960, "for con-
duct prejudicial to the best in-
terests of the university." Actually,

sport of Matadi. For hours rifle,
machine gun and mortar fire
hammered through the hillside
town. The UN reported the Ca-
nadian station now has appar-
ently been knocked out of action
and all contact with the UN gar-
rison has been lost. At least two
Sudanese have been wounded, one
of them seriously.
After a brief truce arranged by
the local UN commander, firing
broke out again last yesterday.
Forced Out -
Should the UN be forced out of
Matadi the entire operation in the
Congo would be threatened. Near-
ly all of the country's desperately
needed food, medical and gasoline
supplies are landed there.
Anticipating UN attempts to
boost the strength of Matadi's
garrison, the Congolese closed the
river ferry connecting the town
with its airport.
Congo Suspects
The fighting is a result of Con-
golese suspicions that the UN
force is preparing to disarm the
national army. It seems to have
broken out spontaneously on the
initiative of relatively low-level
officers on the spot. Army com-
manders in Leopoldville are join-

when Congolese opened up at close'

Canadian signallers as a UN com-

Battle Spreads
Within minutes the battle
spread to other parts of the town,
according to UN reports. At one
point the local UN commander
ventured into the street to ar-
range a cease-fire. But it lasted
only briefly.

In Revision
Of Schedule
Prof. Richard Boys of the Eng-
lish department said Friday night
that the committee appointed to
implement a year-round Univer-
sity schedule would find it difficult
to complete its work by May.
He added,'I do not for a minute
believe that the proposed chartges
will be in effect by 1962."
Prof. Boys, who two years ago
headed a faculty committee inves-
tigation of calendar revisions, em-
phasized that the present com-
mittee is "a good one." But, he
continued, "they have terrible
Several Years Needed
"I have great faith in the com-
mittee, and they may be able to
come up with something. But it
would take several years to do a
proper study."
The committee was appointed
Wednesday by President Harlan
Hatcher. Headed by Prof. William
Haber of the economics depart-
ment, it held its first meeting Fri
day, Prof. Haber said Thursday
that he hoped to have a final re-
port ready by May.
Prof. Boys said that his. group

"I think most of us are quite
convinced that some change is go-
ing to occur-we start from this

personally preferred a hybrid plan
adopted last week by the Univer-
sity of California. This featured a
twelve - week summer program,
which may be divided into two
six-week sessions at the option of

Prof. Boys said that it was
"clear" that most of the faculty

only 6% points below the Con-

New Record, Almost
A victory in the last event of
the day, the mile relay, would have
given the Wolverines the new
mark; but hopes of this happen-
ing were quickly dashed when Don
Chalfant, running the second leg,
and Bryan Gibson, running the
third leg, bumped into each other
attempting a hand-off and drop-
ped the baton.
Chalfant had raced from last
place into the lead when the mis-
hap occurred.

After the meet, the joyous Don
Canham, whose teams have won
five indoor titles in the past seven
years, called this 1961 squad "My
greatest ever."
From top to bottom here yester-
day, it was just that. The Wolver-
ines tallied points in 13 of the 15

Double Winners
Individually, McRae and Leps
were the only double winners dur-
ing the two days of competition,
but comeback performances by
Ray Locke and Dick Cephas also
contributed to the Michigan land-
For McRae, the victories in the
70-yd. low and high hurdles were
particularly satisfying. In the
highs, McRae defeated Minne-
sota's previously unbeaten Dave
Odegard, who had upset him last
year in the same event.
In addition, his time of :08.4
tied the Conference and the Illi-
nois Armory records for the event.
Same Story
It was much the same story in
the lows. McRae had a step on
Odegard at the second hurdle and
went on to a neck-stretching one-

half-yard victory in :07.9. Cephas
finished third in the event.
McRae now has a share of both
