Congo Blasts Try
To Halt U.S. Aid
African Nations Try To Stop Help;
U.S. Ambassador To Meet Tshombe
By The Associated Press
The Congo angrily denounced yesterday an attempt by other Afri-
can nations to persuade the United States to hal- its aid to the rebel-
lion-torn country. It announced it can no longer conform to the
decisions of the group of nations which made the attempt-the Orga-
nization of African Unity (OAU).
U.S. Ambassador G. McMurtie Godley immediately flew to Ka-
tanga for talks with Premier Moise Tshombe.
Godley flew to Elizabethville by military plane and continued by
road for Jadotville, where Tshombe was on tour. It was expected the

WASHINGTON-Vicious parti-

yesterday over whether Sen. Barry

policies that might lead to war.

President Joseph Kasavubu told
Guinean diplomat Diallo Telli, the
organization's secretary-general,
that by deciding to send a five-
nation mission to Washington tc
try to halt U.S. aid, the OAU
"is allowing itself to raise; doubts
over whether the Congo is an in-
dependent nation."
"In the face of this flagrant
and deliberate violation of the
charter of' the organization of
African unity, it is no longer pos-
sible for the Congo, as a sover-
eign nation, to conform with that
organization's decisions," Kasavu-
bu said in a telegram to Telli.
Meanwhile, the U.S. told the
FOAU that -it could not receive its
delegation, reportedly leaving for
Washington today.
"We could not agree to discuss
our aid to the Congo without the
participation of the Congolese gov-
ernment at whose request our aid
is given," State Department Press
Officer Robert McCloskey an-
McCloskey said the State De-
partment has asked Attwood "to
indicate to the commission that
if the government of the Congo
is willing to participate in such
discussions, U.S. representatives
will be prepared to meet with rep-
resentatives of the government of
the Congo and of the OAU com-
mission at a mutually agreed time
and place and on the basis of a
previously agreed agenda."
In telling the OAU that the
Congo could no longer abide by
its decisions, Kasavubu pointed
out that American trucks, planes
and radio equipment were reach-
ing the Congo in accordance with
a bilateral agreement which the
Congo had signed "as a sovereign
state, in. conformity with interna-
tional laws."

By The Associated Press1
United Auto Workers Presidenti
Walter Reuther commented yes-
terday that discussions with Gen-
eral Motors on non-economic mat-
ters-the main stumbling block to
a settlement-are making no prog-
ress as the negotiation period
nears its end.1
Non-economic issues include dis-
agreement over such items as
grievance procedures.
Reuther remarked that the un-

GM rather than to a new labor
contract with the world's top auto-
The UAW has fixed 10 a.m.
(Ann Arbor time) Friday as a
deadline for a mass walkout at
GM's 129 plants in 71 cities. In
addition, a second deadline hasi
been set the following Friday for
settlement of more than 18,000
outstanding local at-the-plant de-
"There has been no progress in
our negotiations on non-economic
issues," Reuther said, "and unless
we make meaningful progress;
there will be a strike."
'Less Promising'
The UAW chief said the climate'
at the GM bargaining table was
"less promising and less hopeful"
for avoiding a walkout than it
was at a comparable stage in talks
with Chrysler.
The Chrysler settlement, which
set the economic pattern for the
entire industry, was announced
less than an hour before a strike
deadline was to expire.
Reuther said he was prepared to
bargain around the clock begin-
ning this morning in order to
reach an agreement before the
The major non-econoimic road-
blocks to a GM agreement include
production quotas, working con-
ditions, disciplinary layoffs and
time allotted union representatives
for discussion of grievances.
General Motors, said Reuther,
does not come up to the standards
prevailing at both Ford and Chrys-
ler on these issues.
Same Package
In its economic proposal, GM
has offered the UAW virtually
the same package which the union
accepted from Ford and Chrysler.
This encompasses higher pen-
sions, longer vacations, additional
holidays, increased wages, and im-
proved hospital and medical cov-
Reuther said that details of
some fringe benefits must still be
worked out at GM, but he indicat-

Michigan voters who bother to

On the subject of agriculture,
the Republicans say:
"A major Republican concern
has been the protection of both
the consumer and the producer of
agricultural products. . . . New

soft drinks, egg processing,. chem-
