forces.
It was through a similar ap-
pointment that Khanh, got Lt.
Gen. Duong Van Minh, a critic and
potential rival, out of the country
last fall. The man who overthrew
President Ngo Dinh Diem .in 1963
was dispatched 'on a good will tour

Southeast Asian nations.

server at the United Nations, re-I

New York said it had received no
official word on the situation.

Reports on
'Soundings'
In Viet Nam
LONDON (A)- Prime MinisterI
Harold Wilson has confirmed that
Britain is making confidential
diplomatic soundings to determine
whether the war in Viet Nam can
be settled peacefully.
It was the labor government's
first public announcement on whatI
already had been reported by dip-
lomatic informants. Wilson cook
the precaution of making it in a
written answer to a question in
the House of Commons.
Wilson indicated that the con-
tacts were proceeding at the top
level-through himself and For-
eign Secretary Michael Stewart.
In Washington several senators
and key House members summon-
ed the nation yesterday to a tough,
militant stand against insurgent
Communism in Viet Nam and
blasted recent calls for a negotiat-
ed settlement.,
Sen. Thomas J. Dodd (D-Conn)
told the Senate in a long speech
that a negotiated settlement would
bring on a giganticbloodletting
dwarfing the agony and suffering
already experienced.
A similar stand was expressed
in the House with Rep. Clement
J. Zablocki (D-Wis), chairman of
a Far Eastern Affairs subcommit-
tee, cautioning the United States
has an obligation that can't be
negotiated away.

Negro Marchers Defy
Polce, No Arrests
SELMA OP)-About 200 young Negroes began a twilight march
to the courthouse late yesterday but turned back about three blocks
from their starting point after Wilson Baker, city public safety di-

"It's only in the interest of your safety. I cannot permit you
to march to the courthouse," Baker said. The marchers moved from

being "to present the evidence of Viet Copg infiltration seized
off the Communist ship on our coast last week."
Khanh said. "But I shall continue tious man from taking over," he

No Bitterness
Khanh displayed no bitterness.
at the officers who ended his.13
months of supremacy, though he
said his ouster was not carried
out democratically.
"They had their reasons for
doing what they did," he said. "If
they feel the war will get along
better without me in charge, then
I must go."
A deputy premier in the Saigon
government and a top figure in
the Armed Forces Council, Thieu

Washington by Sen. Mike Mans-

LONDON UM)-The Labor government pledged British nuclear

India living in "the new shadow" of Red China's atomic power.
But Prime Minister Harold Wilson's four-month-old administra-
tion, in an official outline of its defense program, ruled out virtually
L all danger of "major nuclear war arising from a direct conflict"

between the Soviet Union and

the West. A white paper (policy
derision) on defense set before
Parliament said on this point:
"This (major nuclear war) can
be almost entirely excluded as a
result of mutual deterrence and
deliberate aggression even on- a
limited scale is unlikely in Europe.
Evolution
"An evolution in. both Soviet
and Western thinking, brought
about partly by increased under-
standing of the consequences of
nuclear warfare has therefore
much reduced the likelihood of
war between the Soviet and West-
ern alliances."
The British government, never-
theless, warned that the allies
must keep their guard up, saying
risks remain of war arising from
misunderstanding, miscalculation
or accident. Instability, accom-
panied by unrest and conflict, may
well increase in Africa and else-
where, the paper said.
Then followed the government's
offer to ease the fears of its
friends living within the unsettled
and uncertain area of Red Chinese
influence.
A high government source, elab-
orating the thinking behind the
government's concept,, said in it-
self Red China's new-found nu-
clear capacity does not profoundly
change major tower relations. U.S.
and British officials expressed the
belief recently that the Chinese
are preparing to set off their sec-
I and atomic explosion.

NEW YORK R)-A Black Mus-
lim headquarters mosque in Har-
lem was wrecked by explosion and
fire early yesterday 'in apparent
reprisal for the assassination of
rival Negro nationalist leader Mal-
colm X.
Elsewhere in the nation, Negro
communities seethed with fear and
unrest as the aftermath of the
Sunday slaying of the well-known
Negro nationalist.
A Muslim meeting place in San
Francisco was the target of a
kerosene-fed blaze.
Vengeance Party
In Chicago, police confirmed a
report that a six-man vengeance
party of Malcolm's followers' had
slipped out of New York. They
were believed bent on revenge
against Black Muslim leader Eli-
jah Muhammed, Malcolm's former
chieftain. Muhammed has denied
any knowledge of the assassina-
tion.
Black Muslims set up a security
guard to augment elaborate police
measures protecting Muhammed
from assassins.
Special police squads also kept
close watch on nearly a half
dozen other south side locations to
prevent any revenge bloodshed or
reprisals against the sect's various
property holdings in Chicago.
In Seclusion
Muhammed, who has not asked
for police protection, remained in
seclusion. With him were guards
from the Fruit of Islam, the ka-
rate-trained elite corps of the Ne-
gro sect.'
A former Black Muslim official
in Boston, Aubrey Barnette, ex-
pressed concern for the safety of
heavyweight champion Cassius
Clay. The fighter was recruited
into the Muslim movement by
Malcolm X, before the latter's
ouster in 1963. Barnette declared:
"I believe somebody important
will have to pay when Malcolm
X's followers or the others anger-
ed by his murder reciprocatl
against the Muslims. They will
try to get back at the Muslims in
some way to make a big impres-
sion, with someone the equal of
Malcolm in national stature. Clay
has that stature."
Maximum Retaliation
Before the Harlem mosque fire,
one of Malcolm's lieutenants, Leon
X4 Ameer, was quoted as saying:
"We are going to repay them
for what they did to Malcolm.
There will be maximum retalia-
tion."
The early morning fire all but
destroyed the four-story Mosque

project toward a waiting force of
policemen two blocks away.
Baker had said he would arrest
the marchers. It was not clear im-
mediately whether he had placed
them under arrest.
Dangerous
When the Negro teen-agers and
some children poured out of the
red brick Brown's AME Chapel,
Baker halted them and said: "A
march of any kind at this time of
evening is a very dangerous thing."
"To do this will be unlawful.
You are in an unlawful assembly
here.
"I am asking you not to do this
thing."
One of the Negroes yelled:
"What about it being unlawful
to vote?"
The crowd of marchers cheered
and yelled.
In Federal Court
Baker replied that the voter
registration issue was in the hands
of the federal court and he had no
control over it.
Baker had said he would arrest
the marchers if they persisted in
their demonstration because, he
said, any such march at this time
of day would only invite racial
violence.
The Negroes, starting the dem-
onstration in the absence of Rev.
Martin Luther King Jr., disre-
garded Baker's urgent, impassion-
ed appeal at first and continued
walking from a church two by
two.
About three blocks away, the
veteran police officer stopped the
procession.
Dispersed
Some 75 of the demonstrators
dispersed to the opposite side of
the street and fled. When officers
tried to stop them, Baker told
police to let them go.
The remaining Negroes drop-
ped to their knees on the side-
walk and sang "We Shall Over-
come," one of their "freedom
songs."
Their eader, John Lewis, in-
toned a prayer. He is chairman
of the Student Nonviolent Co-
ordinating Committee.
Once more Baker asked the
Negroes to return to the church.
This time they turned around and
left.
Threats
Heavy police security continued
for King following reports of
threats against his life.
One of his closest associates,
Bernard Lee, said that he received
information from very reliable
sources. that two white men had
plotted to assassinate King last
week in nearby Marion.
Baker said that he had checked
out at least one report and found
nothing concrete. Federal agents
who constantly follow King de-
clined comment.

-Associated Press
IN THE WAKE OF THREATS against the Black Muslims by
followers of Malcolm X, assassinated rival leader, this fire swept
through a Muslim Mosque in, the Harlem section of New York
early Monday.

Ave. It was Malcolm's headquar-
ters when he reigned in Harlem
as Muhammed's fiery, vitriolic
chief aide in the Muslim move-
mnent.
Link with Campaign
Preceded by an explosion at 2:15
a.m., the fire came 35 hours after
Malcolm was ,hot and killed amid
500 of his followers at a rally in
the Audubon Ballroom in Wash-
ington Heights. Police sought a
link between the assassination
and Malcolm's anti-,Vuslim cam-

paign.
Funeral services for the slain
nationalist leader were scheduled
for Saturday.
Overheard Threat
Funeral director James E. Hal'
said a man he knows telephoned
him shortly after noon and told of
overhearing a threat to throw a
bomb into the funeral home. He
would not identify the caller to
newsmen. A similar but anony-
mous call came later from a wom-
an.

CAIRO (P) - Communist East
German flags were hoisted over
Cairo yesterday as this center of
the Arab world prepared to give
East German President Walter
Ulbricht a full dress welcome to-
day.
Uibricht's one-week visit could
lead to a break in diplomatic re-
lations between West Germany
and the United Arab Republic, and
possibly the rest of the Arab
world.
President Gamal Abdel Nasser
and most of his top ministers will
personally meet Ulbricht at the
Cairo railroad station, where Ul-
bricht will arrive by special train
from Alexandria at 12:30 p.m. He
is sailing to Alexandria by ship.
Decked Out
The station was decorated with
bunting and East German and
Egyption flags.
Ulbricht will be greeted with
the 21-gun salute reserved for
heads of state. He will review an
honor guard and drive at Nasser's
side through Cairo's teeming
streets to Kubbeh Palace, Nasser's
top official guest house.
Ulbricht's visit includes three
formal conferences with Nasser,
two official banquets, speeches and
trips to the Aswan dam, Luxor,
Liberation Province and the She-
bin El Kom textiles center built
by the East Germans.
Ulbrecht Triumph
The visit is regarded as a per-
sonal triumph' for Ulbricht, who
has never paid a state visit to a
non-Communist country before. It
is considered a diplomatic blow to
Bonn and its doctrine barring
relations with governments that
recognize E st Germany.
Western diplomats here fear they
visit could provide an edge for
East Germany in the rest of the
Arab world. Representatives of
Arab states declared their solidar-
ity behind the U.A.R.-and against
the West-in an official statement
Monday.
In a widely broadcast radio in-
terview, Ulbricht warned the Arab
world it would be directly threat-
ened if Western powers equipped
West Germany with atomic weap-
ons.
'Not Hesitate'
He said West Germany would
not hesitate to provide Israel with
these" weapons.
Al Ahram glowingly described
Ulbricht as "a leader opposing
imperialism and supporting all
liberation movements, whose gov-
ernment gives all possible help to,
nationalist governments in Africa
and Asia enabling them to eradi-
cate imperialism.'
Ulbricht's visit has provoked
the bitterest recriminations be-

Labor Leaders
Denounce AMA
MIAMI BEACH 0P)-AFL-CIO
leaders accused the American
Medical Association (AMA) yes-
terday of trying to kill President
Lyndon B. Johnson's medical care
legislation through a ruthless
c a m p a i g n of "cynical" and
"phony'' promises.
The AFL-CIO executive called
on all its affiliated unions,. em-
bracing some 12 million members,
to fight AMA efforts to substitute
its own proposal for the admin-
istration's legislation.
The council said the AMA's so-
called "elder care" bill would be
so expensive that Congress and
state legislatures would never be
able to finance it.
"The American Medical Associa-
tion would have Congress enact
legislation consisting only of
empty promises," the council said.
In another development, AFL-
CIO President George Meany de-
nied he was interfering with the
United Steelworkers Union by call-
ing for an extension of steel in-
dustry contracts.
