Bourguiba Proposes Coalition

CAIRO (A') - President Habib.
Bourguiba of Tunisia has propos-
ed that Algerian Rebel Premier
Ferhat Abbas head a provisional
coalition government in Algeria
while French troops withdraw
from' the territory, reliable in-
formants said recently.
French President Charles de

rapidly is gaining stature as a
go between in negotiations to end
the long Algerian rebellion, the
sources said.
The informants, who have close
contacts with rebel headquarters
in Tunis, Tunisia, outlined Bour-
guiba's plan this way:
Abbas would have a cabinet
composed of two Algerians and
two Frenchmen. The latter would
not be residents of Algeria. The
provisional government would rule
for four years, during which time
the French army would withdraw
all its troops.
Then, a plebiscite along lines
de Gaulle suggested in 1959 would
give Algeria's nine million Mos-
lems and one million European
settlers opportunity to vote for in-
dependence or to remain a part of

would be given three alternatives:
1) Algerian citizenship with full
political and economic rights; 2)
Residence in Algeria as French
citizens but with the guaranty of
the same economic" rights and

privileges as Algerians; 3) Depar-
ture from Algeria.
Bourguiba's plan envisions the
vast Sahara petroleum concession
remaining under French owner-
ship. But profits would be split
50-50 with the Algerian govern-
ment, a formula similar to con-
cessions in Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

WASHINGTON (P) - President
John F. Kennedy appears likely to,
win one of his touchiest political
tussles so far with Senate confir-
mation next week of his nomina-
tion of Charles M. Meriwether as
a director of the Export-Import
Meriwether, Alabama state fi-
nance director, is an avowed seg-
regationist. His selection by Ken-
nedy for the bank post has been
received with a noticeable lack of
enthusiasm, if not open opposi-
tion, by a number of Democratic
senators who vigorously back the
President's legislative program.
Meriwether denied in testimony
before the Senate banking com-
mittee that he is anti-Negro, anti-
Semetic or anti-Catholic. He de-
nied any affiliation with the Ku
Klux Klan.
He said he would not let his
segregationist views influence any
decision on loans to African or
Asian countries.
Around the Senate the general
supposition is that the Meriweth-
er appointment was designed to
please Gov. John Patterson of Ala-
bama. Patterson was the first
southern governor to come out for
Kennedy for the 1960 Democratic
presidential nomination.

LONDON (A) - One hundred
South African political exiles booed
and hissed Prime Minister Hend-

terday as he arrived for a meet-

leaders. British police put into ef-
fect one of the biggest security
operations since Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev's 1956 visit.
It was the first time in 34 years
Verwoerd had left his homeland.
He has announced his determina-
tion to maintain his country's ra-
cist policies and still keep it in
the commonwealth.
Asks Unified
Missile Plan
fense Department was told by the
House Appropriations Committee
recently to put its missile base
program under the direction of
one person.
To end what it termed divided
responsibility, the committee said
there should be "a single head
responsible directly to the Chief
of Staff and the Secretary of the
Air Force."
Such action, the committee said,
following an investigation of the
program, would remove a present
threat to "the well being of the
entire system."

Meriwether manager Patterson's
1958 campaign. He has been serv-
ing since under Patterson as state
finance director.
Senators Lister Hill and John
Sparkman, Alabama Democrats,
are understood not to have been
consulted in advance about the
appointment. However, Sparkman
voted for the nominee when the
banking committee gave him 5-4
approval Thursday.
