INDONESIA'S PRESIDENT AHMED SUKARNO (left) conferred yesterday with Indonesian Com-

peasants and workers to defend the country. Both Indonesia, with Communist aid, and Malaysia,
with the aid of Britain, are building up armed forces in border areas.

A uthorities on Poverty
To Attend Symposium
By ELLIOT BARDEN
"Recently people have become aware of 'the invisible America,'
the slum-ridden areas the suburbanites never see, the poverty pockets
far off the main highways. Since the publication of Michael Harring-
ton's 'The Other America,' this awareness of the American poverty
problem has increased and is now most concretely evident in the
recent creation of the federal Office of Economic Opportunity," Jack
Warren, '65, chairman of the Special Projects Committee of the Union,
In an effort to focus attention on this national problem the
Union and the League are co-sponsoring a symposium on poverty.
The diplomats said those seized
for questioning were a former
premier, a former justice minister,
a former cabinet chief and labor

Ngendandumwe was the second
Burundi premier to meet his end'
by assassination. Nine months be-
fore independence in 1962, Crown
Prince Louis Rwagasore was shot
dead as he sat in a cafe. Five
men were executed in 1963 for
complicity in his assassination. He
was a son of the king and the
nation's first premier.
This was Ngendandumwe's sec-
ond time around as premier. He
had been relieved of his post last
April by Mwami (king) Mwam-

Wolverines Coast by
Wildcat Five, 90-68

Special To The Daily
EVANSTON-Overcoming a two-game Saturday night jinx Coach
Dave Strack's Wolverines slid along for 15 minutes, then broke loose
and coasted to a 90-68 victory against Northwestern here last night.'
The win put the Wolverines in undisputed possession of first
place in the Big Ten with a 2-0 mark and gave them a 10-2 record
for the season.
Cazzie Russell from Chicago's Carver High School, playing in
the Chicago area for the first time in his college career, delighted
the fans with a variety of skills and 36 points to lead all scorers.
Bill Buntin notched 17 for Michigan and captain Larry Tregoning
added 15 while leading everyone in rebounds with 16, including 10
in the second half.
The Wolverines were almost outrebounded by the smaller,
aggressive Wildcats, but wound up with a 55-53 edge in that depart-
The shaky start, marred with turnovers and missed Michigan
layups, was overcome quickly, as a seven-point Wildcat lead was
quickly made invisible when Cazzie and the Michigan fast break
attack went to work.
With 6:02 remaining in the first half the score was 29-22,
Northwestern, but from that point the Wolverines notched 23 to
Just 6 by the host Wildcats. Russell had 10 points on a variety of
shots in the Michigan scoring splurge, gai'nering two layups, a
jumper from the corner, another from 22 feet out in front, and
a sweeping hook from the free-throw line.

LONDON UP) -- Sir Winston
Churchill slumbered in a coma last
night, still clinging feebly to life'
after a stroke laid him low.
Little hope seemed left that the
90 - year - old warrior -,statesman
could survive this toughest battle
of his long career. His condi-
tion showed no change overnight,
when his doctors reported ilm
slipping peacefully and painlessly
into deeper sleep.
Churchill's' personal physician,
'Lord Moran, visited him Saturday,
The man who had steered his old
friend through other serious ill-
nesses stayed half an hour, then
issued this bulletin:
"Sir Winston had a peaceful
night. There is no material change
in his condition."
Churchill was stricken Friday
by a cerebral thrombosis--a clot
on the brain--and developed cir-
culatory trouble. 'The first sign
that he was not well came when it
was announced that he had a cold.
Then came medical bulletins tell-
ing a graver story of a brain clot.,
Commenting on these bulletins,

spokesman said: "In a man of his
age it is a grave illness. In a
younger man, perhaps, the chance
of recovery might be greater.
"In spite of the fact that he
has been very robust and borne his
illnesses in a terrific way, at the
age of 90 this condition must be
regarded as a grave one.
