wants Test
Of Strength
With Gizenga'
Asks UN Guarantee
Of Delegates' Safety
President Joseph Kasavubu yes-
terday challenged Soviet-support-
ed rebel leader Antoine Gizenga to
a showdown of strength in a new
session of parliament.
The Congolese president an-
nounced the move at a conference
in Coquilhatville, where political
leaders are trying to hammer out
a new constitution for the Congo.
He said he would ask the United
Nations to guarantee the secur-
ity of all members of parliament.
The session probably will be held
late in June.
September Session
Parliament has not met since'
last September, when the late Pre-
mier Patrice Lumumba jammed
through legislation giving him al-
most dictatorial powers. That ses-
sion, held without a quorum, was
generally regarded as illegal.
It was, in any event, one of the
most bizarre parliamentary ses-
sions in history. Lumumba's
troops, carrying submachine guns,
lounged about in the two cham-
bers throughout.-
That earlier session led to Lum-
umba's ouster from office by Kasa-
vubu and his subsequent arrest
and murder.
Possible Effects
The new session of parliament
called by Kasavubu could lead to
gradual resumption of orderly
government. Or it could open old
wounds, throw the Congo into a
new round of political and tribal
gouging and complete the pros-
tration of this unhappy old colony
of the Belgians.
There was no assurance at all
that Gizenga would accept the
challenge, although he has re-
peatedly called for a meeting of
parliament to legalize the govern-
If the UN agrees to guarantee
security at the session-and this
is almost a certainty-Gizenga will
be in a very tight spot indeed.
Many of his followers favor a new
session of parliament as the only
way out of the rift which has di-
vided the country.

ExpectS hakeup
To Follow Study
WASHINGTON (-') - Informed
members of Congress are con-
vinced that a drastic shakeup of
the Central Intelligence Agency
is in the making, with Allen
Dulles on his way out as head of
the agency.
President John F. Kennedy is
expected to get recommendations
within a few days from a task
force of investigators headed by
retired Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor,
former Army chief of staff, on
possible changes in the agency's
setup. The report almost certain-
ly will not be made public.
Taylor New Head
The assumption of legislators is
that Taylor, who has been aided
in his survey by Atty. Gen. Rob-
ert F. Kennedy, will be tapped to
head the revamped organization.
Congressional sources discount
reports that Ambassador James
M. Gavin, also a retired general,
might be recalled from Paris to
take over as administrator.
Dulles and Adm. Arleigh A.
Burke, chief of naval operations,
are also aiding in the Taylor in-
Separate Parts
Officials who have been kept
abreast of the progress of Taylor's
inquiry believe he will recom-
mend a separation of the intelli-
gence function from the under-
ground activities of the CIA of
the type that involved it in the
ill-fated Cuban invasion.
There is strong opposition
among congressional leaders to
transferring to the Pentagon di-
rection of the underground action
activities-those which seek to at-
tain military objectives by guer-
rilla, underground or other un-
conventional methods.
Senator Says
Secrets Leak
Howard W, Cannon (D-Nev) said
yesterday loose tongued Americans
do Soviet spies' work for them
when they leak defense secrets.
He did not attempt to fix re-
sponsibility in any one quarter
for what he regards as excessive
dissemination of military informa-
tion. He appeared to be striking
at defense department leaks, at
talkative members of Congress and
at weapons makers who like to
praise their own products.

day, while in Algiers security
forces bristled for trouble which
never came.
The two bomb blasts in Paris
hurt at least six persons, includ-
ing an American tourist, and
heavily damaged immediate areas
in the office buildings where they
were set.
As police swarmed into the
downtown area where the bombs
burst within 90 minutes of each
other, another plastic charge was
discovered in a left bank apart-
ment building. It was neutralized
before it exploded.
The bomb incidents followed two
small explosions during the night
where no one was injured..
The bombings occurred on the

and led to President Charles de
Gaulle's return to power.
Nervous authorities in Algiers
had feared the worst today and
ordered a spectacular alert dubbed
"Operation Valentine," but noth-
ing happened.

Folksinging A gain
NEW YORK - New York City
Mayor Robert Wagner yesterday
announced that folk singing would
be allowed in Washington Square
again "on a controlled basis." This
reversed a previous decision that
banned the singing after police
clashes with the singers.

In Reforms
TEHRAN (R) - Iran's reform
premier, Ali Amini, launched his
promised drive against corruption
with the arrest of five army gen-
erals last night, a top government
source announced.
Two of the generals listed by
the informant were cabinet min-
isters in the government of Sharif
Emami which was toppled last
The government source said the
arrest of the generals was only
the beginning of the crackdown.
He said that in the next few days
"at least 100" civilians, including
former cabinet ministers, would be
arrested on corruption charges for
trial in civil courts.

WASHINGTON - Unusual ac-
tivity by Dominican Republic mili-
tary aircraft is being reported in
and around Ciudad Trujillo, capi-
tal of the republic, diplomatic
sources said yesterday.
They said such activity also co-
incides with a reported order to
r Dominican hospitals to be pre-
pared to receive wounded or in-
jured persons between May 13
and May 18.
The meaning of the activity is
not immediately clear, the sources
said. Military plane activity pre-
viously has been light in the
Dominican Republic, they noted.

HOLLYWOOD - Gary Cooper
died yesterday of cancer after a
deathbed fight that rivalled in
courage the heroic roles he played
in 35 years in motion pictures.
The screen hero was 60 a few
days ago.
He had lingered at death's door
for days and was heavily drugged
to ease the pain that wracked his
once-powerful, 6-foot-3-inch body.
SANTIAGO-An earthquake of"
moderate intensity shook six
towns in southern Chile early yes-
The quake occurred in Concep-
cion, Lebu, Los Angeles, Coronel,
Angol and Chillan.

"America will honor her com-
mitments to the cause of freedom
throughout the community of free
nations," he said. "Our friends can
count on America, and we know
we can count on our friends-none
more than our old and cherished
friends, the Filipino people."
Goes to Formosa
Johnson's visit here was follow-
ed with his departure for For-
mosa, where officials expect closer
cooperation with the United States
to follow his tour.
Philippine President Carlos P.
Garcia, in a toast to President
John F. Kennedy, declared, "des-
tiny united the United States and
the Philippines in heroic defense
of freedom and democracy during
the Second World War.
"Destiny will keep us ever unit-
ed for the same cause," he added.
Johnson responded with the
strongest statement he has made
in the Philippines since arriving:
Honor Obligations
"We will continue to honor our
obligations and will proceed eith-
er alone or with our free world
friends to preserve our position in
This appeared to answer Philip-
pine anxieties that the United
States was easing its commitments
in Asia.

In his speech to congress, the
tall Texan, Kennedy's personal
fact-finding emissary, mentioned
Cuba, where "a demagogue has
turned a people's dream of a bet-
ter life into a nightmare of Com-
munist dictatorship," and South
Viet Nam, where "Communist
guerrillas hide in the jungles to
strike by night against families
who have chosen freedom."
Loosen Rules
For Tourists
Department has eased its visa
procedures again to encourage
foreign tourist travel to the Unit-
ed States, officials disclosed yes-
Under a new regulation, a for-
eigner can get an existing United
States visa renewed instead of
having to apply for a new one
when the old expires. A visa is a
permit to enter a country.
The action is part of President
John F. Kennedy's program to at-
tract more foreign visitors to
America. Last year American tour-
ists abroad spent about $2 bil-
lion compared with a $1 billion
outlay by foreigners here.
