Conservation
Law Asked
WASHINGTON (M ) - President
John F. Kennedy called on Con-
gress yesterday to give immediate
attention to solving the many
problems of conserving and devel-
oping this country's natural re-
sources.
He also called for the fullest
cooperation of state and local gov-
ernments and private industry,
declaring "it is not a task which
should or can be done by the fed-
eral government alone:"
In a special mesage to Congress,
Kennedy rejected a "no new
starts" policy, which aides attri-
buted to the Eisenhower adminis-
tration. Kennedy said this policy
of holding up new projects took
a heavy toll of lives and money
"by postponing essential flood
control projects."
To Speed Up
"This administration," he said,
"is committed to strengthening
and speeding up our flood control
program as rapidly as our fiscal
and technical capabilities permit."
The President said he was call-
ing for reports on flood hazards in
all 50 states.
Kennedy's mesage ranged over
a wide area of immediate and long
range problems in what he called
Othe widely scattered resource
policies of the federal govern-
ment." He said he wanted to co-
ordinate overlapping, conflicting
and wasteful policies dealing with
water, land, forests and minerals.
No Cost Listed
There was no over-all cost es-
timate. Many of Kennedy's rec-
ommendations were based on fu-
ture needs and administration of-
ficials indicated they expect little
immediate effect on the budget.
Among other things, the Presi-
dent's program looks to develop-
ment of economically competitive
nuclear power within 10 years to
supplement or replace convention-
al power in areas where generat-
ing costs are high.
It also envisages exploration of
the oceans for oil, gas and min-
erals and additional seafood; great
expansion of recreational areas;
control of air and water pollution,
and forest conservation.
Council Backs
Birth Control
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (A')-A com-
bination of Protestant demonina-
tions joined yesterday in endorsing
scientifically aided birth-control
as a boon to sound family life
and a potential help to the wel-
fare of the world.
Acting in a zone of keen reli-
gious conflict, the National Coun-
cil of Churches declared that con-
traception was an entirely Chris-
tian means for "conscientious
family limitation."
"The general Protestant con-
viction is that motives, rather
than methods, form the primary
moral issue."

UN Fears
Outbreaks
Of Violence
Lumumba Secretary
Flees Stanleyville
LEOPOLDVILLE ()-Reports of
a new falling-out among rebel
leaders in Stanleyville reached
diplomats here yesterday.
One former aide of Patrice
Lumumba is said to have fled and
another to have been arrested in
the struggle for power in rebel
ranks.
Fears of a blood bath grew as
Stanleyville authorities remained
silent on a United Nations demand
for information on the fate of 15
political prisoners believed execut-
ed by the rebels. The truce be-
tween the United Nations and Ka-
tanga, meanwhile, began showing
strains.
Report Quarrel
Diplomats here said Bernard
Salumu,former'secretary to Lum-
umba, quarreled with Antoine
Gizenga, the Communist-backed
rebel leader, and fled Stanley-
ville.
Salumu, one of the Congo's
most violent anti-white extrem-
ists, was the rebels' main contact
with the United Arab Republic.-
The UAR is believed by some
to be a main source of arms for
the rebel regime controlling the
northeastern Congo.
Rebels Maneuver
Since the slaying of Lumumba
was announced by Katanga prov-
ince authorities last week, the
rebels in Stanleyville have been
maneuvering among themselves
for the mantle of leadership worn
by the deposed premier even dur-
ing his two months in Jail.
Anicet Kashamura, who show-
ed Communist influences when he
controlled the Congolese radio in
Leopoldville during a term as in-
formation minister under Lumum-
ba last summer, was rumored un-
der arrest by Stanleyville troops.
Kashamura had been designat-
ed leader of Kivu province-south
of Stanleyville and Oriental prov-
ince-when the rebels seized the
area early this year. Two weeks
ago he was reported arrested and
then freed by troops loyal to him.

WASHINGTON () - President
John F. Kennedy reviewed current

JAKARTA, Indonesia - President John F. Kennedy has invited

accepted, the government said last night.
Foreign office spokesman Ganis Harsono said Sukarno received
a communication from Kennedy dated Wednesday proposing a meet-
ing to discuss matters of "mutual interest to both countries and
study possibilities to solve pressing problems which have a direct
bearing on the peace and well being of the community of the world."
Sukarno will be the first chief of state to visit Washington since
Kennedy took office last Jan. 20. He will stop there on a tour that
