Soviets Accuse West of Spying




Leave Cairo

Tshombe Abandons Hid To Crash
Conference of Nonaligned Nations
CAIRO (M--The Congo's Premier Moise Tshombe abandoned last
night his attempt to crash the Conference of Nonaligned Nations after
being told he would not be accepted.
From a suburban palace where he had been kept under virtual
house arrest through the day, Tshombe announced he would leave
immediately for the Congo.
Among the most frequently mentioned reasons for Tshombe's
exclusion were his uses of white mercenaries in combat while he was
trying secede from the Congo as president of the rich province of
Katanga and again since he has become premier at Leopoldville. He'
has been widely accused of serv-
ing as a stooge and promoting

Bitter Statement
In a bitter statement issued
through an aide, Tshombe de-
nounced what he called the "at-
mosphere inspired by certain del-
egates" and rejected the conten-
tion that his presence would in-
terfere with an attempt to end
civil war in the Congo.
Tshombe also sent an angry
letter to President Abdel Gam-
el Nasser complaining, "I am a
prisoner of my host." He said he
had been cut off from all commu-
nication with the outside world
and even had difficulty getting in
touch with the Congo embassy.
A delegation from the confer-
ence brought word of the ban to
Tshombe at the walled Aruba pal-
ace in suburban Heliopolis earlier
yesterday. They said he would
not be admitted but that Congo
President Joseph Kasavubu wouldf
be most welcome.

MOSCOW (MP)-The Soviet Un-
ion charged yesterday that three
United States military attaches
and a British attache searched
by Russian authorities in the Kha-
barovsk incident were spying. It
was officially hinted they may
be barred from the country.
Russia said the men had taken
900 pictures and filled 26 note-
books during a train trip from
Moscow to the Soviet Far East,
and had thus "engaged in espion-
The foreign ministry announc-

U.S. authorities, rejecting the
accusation of espionage, made it
clear thatntheydid not regard
the Russian charge as a reply.

accusation, made in notes relayed

Cites Chan es
In Viet Cong
War Tactie s
SAIGON (M)--A United States
military spokesman said yester-
day the Communist Viet Cong ap-
parently has switched the empha-
his of its campaign from mili-
tary to political means, especial-
ly since the August riots in Saigon.
"Obviously, the military activi-
ties during September were not
decisive one way or the other,"
he said. "Ever since the riots in
Saigon one gets the impression
that the Viet Cong have not
staked their future on the mili-
tary side. They probably are ac-
tve in many other fields.
"There continue to be unfor-
tunate ambushes, but that will
continue to be the case as long
as they control large chunks of
the countryside from which very
little intelligence is forthcoming
and tactical troops are forced back
on their own devices."
Despite new charges by Pre-
mier Nguyen Khanh's government
that regular North Vietnamese
units are moving into South Viet
Nam, the spokesman said U.S au-
thorities have no evidence of sig-
nificant increases in infiltration.
Another high American military
source said he believes the Viet
Cong now knows it cannot win
militarily and is concentrating on
political channels. He said it is
possible the Red guerrillas who
in the past have fought with
rifles may now be armed with
clubs as city rioters.
At the same time the spokesman
said Viet Cong roadblocks and
checkpoints have been established
along key roads closer to Saigon
than ever before--in some cases
within 10 miles.
The monthly military statistics
released by U.S. sources, continued
to look bleak. Government person-
nel losses for September-3,240
killed, wounded or missing - were
more than twice as high as esti-
mates of Viet Cong losses. And
the Viet Cong captured nearly
three times as many weapons from
the government as vice versa.

The Soviet protest said confis-
cated material, including more
than 900 pictures and material in
26 notebooks, showed the attaches
had engaged in espionage, "gross-
ly violating the universally ac-
cepted standards of conduct of
foreign diplomats."
The foreign ministry said it "re-
serves the right to return to the
question of the possibility of the
further stay (of the four) in the
Soviet Union."
The Soviet Union, in preferring
such charges against Westerners
in past cases, has declared them
persona non grata (unwelcome)
and forced them to leave.
Meanwhile, the three U.S. mili-
tary attaches and a British naval
attache whose hotel rooms in Si-
beria were invaded by Soviet offi-
cials last week are still refusing
to talk to newsmen about the inci-

Few New Settlements
Despite tentative agreement
Monday on national contract
terms, only two new local-level
working agreements were report-
ed in the 24 hours following na-
tional settlement.
Another 115 still remained to
be resolved at 130 GM plants
around the nation, and workers
are not expected to return until
the bulk of these have been set-
In 1961, after GM and the
UAW reached agreement on na-

260,000 on Strike
In calling this year's strike, the
UAW ordered out about 260,000
of the company's hourly-rated
employes. Layoffs of another 20,-
000 by the company brought the
idled to 280,000.
Following selective strike strat-
egy, the union did not include in
its strike call those workers em-
ployed at GM plants which sell
parts and accessories to the firm's
chief rivals-Ford and Chrysler.
But layoffs hit those plants any-
way as the backlog of extra parts
began to fill warehouses.
