Meredith Attacks
Army, NAACP,
U.S. Cuts Troops
By The Associated Press
OXFORD-Negro James H. Meredith criticized yesterday the way
the Army and, indirectly, the National Association for the Advance-
ment of Colored people for their handling of the desegregation at the
University of Mississippi as the Army reduced the number of troops
stationed there.
He said the instances he cited "have made my struggle most dif-

that he was "picked" for the desegregation move, rather than acting

representative, told the 109-nation General Assembly that the forcible
division of Germany, China, Korea and Viet Nam threaten world
peace. "The Berlin issue in par--

as saying Meredith was selected for
the desegregation move. Henry
could not be reached for comment.
As for the Army, it flatly denied
that~ segregation was the order of
the day at present, but did 'say
some patrols were kept on an all-
white basis at the height of the
tension several days ago.'
It also announced the withdraw-
al of 5,900 regular Army troops in
the area and said it has authoriz-

Soviet Ties
BONN ()--Chancellor Konrad
Adenauer said yesterday West Ger-
many is ready to meet a Soviet bid
for improved relations providing
oppression is stopped in Com-
munist East Germany.
The Soviet Union made the bid
in a memorandum delivered last
year and promoted since through
diplomatic channels. So far there's
been no reported progress.
"The government is making ef-
forts to improve relations with the
Soviet Union," the 86-year-old
chancellor told the Bundestag. 1.3ut
he did not say how.
"I affirm that our government
is ready to discuss many things
with the Soviet Union if our
brothers in the zone (East Ger-
many) can arrange their lives as
they please," Adenauer said.
Delivering the government's an-
nual statement of policy at the
opening, of the fall session, the
chancellor said only these efforts
could produce results if the Soviet
Union for its part seeks "a truly
peaceful resolution" of outstand-
ing problems.
One of the basic policies follow-
ed by Adenauer during his 13
years as chancellor has been a
demand for elections in both Ger-
manys to enable the whole people
to settle the reunification issue
and freely choose their own form
of government. The Soviet Union
has persistently opposed this.

ment pluge humanity into a nu-
clear holocaust."
He expressed hope the leaders
of the big powers will not let any
opportunity go by without making
a supreme effort to ease the dan-
gerous situation prevailing in the
divided nations.
"It would be most desirable," he
said, "if a meeting between
Khrushchev and Kennedy could
be shortly arranged, preferably at
the United Nations while the as-
sembly is in session. Such a meet-
ing could pave the way for future
contacts between representatives of
the divided states, so that they
can negotiate a reunification."
The assembly also heard Al-
gerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ben
Bella pledge his country to a policy
of non-alignment in the East-
West cold war, and also voice firm
determination to work for the
freedom of all areas of the world
still under colonial domination.
His statement came at the end-
of a series of speeches welcoming
admission yesterday of Algeria as
the United Nation's 109th member.

Officials said the phase-out op-

Thai government.

Inch Ahead
WASHINGTON (P)-Congress's
drive for final adjournment stalled
again, then inched ahead late yes-
terday with some progress on ad-
vancing the multibillion dollar wa-
ter projects bill-one of several)
remaining legislative roadblocks.
The House Rules Committee ap-
proved by voice vote a resolution
to send the controversial proposal
to conference to iron out House-
Senate differences.
The resolution, subject to House
adoption, could be presented today.
New Target
Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-
Minn), the Senate's assistant Dem-
ocratic leader, said Thursday night
is the target now for winding up
the longest session since 1951.
He predicted that goal could be
achieved, but when Majority Lead-
er Mike Mpnsfield (D-Mont) was
informed of the forecast he retort-
ed, "what week?"
Flood Control
The water projects conference
will be dealing with a Senate au-
thorization of more than $4 billion
for flood control, navigation and
beach erosion propects and a
House authorization of $2.3 bil-
lion for the same purposes.
There were also these other ma-
jor hurdles to adjournment:
1) Settling a House-Senate dis-
pute over a $25-million research
item in the $5-billion farm appro-
priation bill. House and Senate
appropriation committee members
discussed their differences yester-
day but announced no results; and
2) Legislation granting a tax
break for self-employed persons
who set up their own pension
plans. The bill, awaiting President
John F. Kennedy's action, must be
signed or vetoed by midnight or it
becomes law automatically. Con-
gress is expected to attempt to
override any veto.

Prof. Paul W. McCracken of the
business administration school, &
member of President Dwight D.
Eisenhower's Council of Economic
Advisers, views the potential as-
sociation of parts of Africa and
the European Economic Commun-
ity with a "wait and see" attitude.
"How much the African coun-
tries benefit from associate mem-
bership depends on the magnitude
of the concessions the Common
Market would be willing to make,"
he says. "If these are consequen-
tial, there is some advantage to
be gained."
Prof. McCracken sees two im-
portant factors in measuring fu-
ture benefits. Those African coun-
tries with large export markets,
and particularly with exports use-
ful to the EEC, will naturally be
in the best position.
Tariff Concession
"The extent to which associate
membership will give them a re-
duction in tariffs and other bar-

outside the 'market' is also im-
portant," he notes.
"At least, though, these coun-
tries won't be shut out in the way
that Commonwealth nations such
as Australia and New Zealand fear
they may be when Britain joins
the EEC," he says.
Turning to the question of eco-
nomic growth in the under-
developed African states, Prof. Mc-
Cracken feels that association with
the Common Market will only be
of marginal helpfulness, "not very
large in respect to the total prob-
Quicken Pace
"As these countries try to quick-
en the pace of their economic de-
velopment, the difficulties they
face are only in part solved by
finding export markets," he says.

-...Africa, EEC

The professor asserts an increase
in exports ideally would lead to
additional imports such as in-
dustrial goods and machinery. This
would quicken the pace of capital
formation. On the other hand, he
sees no guarantee that increased
foreign trade will increase the
level ofinvestment. "This is the
major problem.
"These nations also have a ser-
ious need for entrepeneurial and
managerial competence and do-
mestic investment," he continues.
Prof. McCracken doubted that
full partnership between Africa
and the EEC would be established.
"The Common Market is much
more than a customs union. This
involves a full range of political

Join Council
Dean Floyd A. Bond of the
business administration school and
Prof. William Haber of the eco-
nomics department have been ap-
pointed to the Export Expansion
Council by commerce secretary
Luther Hodges.
The council's purpose is to "seek
means of expanding the exports of
American industry in order to
strengthen the dollar in interna-
tional trade" and to explore pol-
icies designed to reduce the out-
flow of gold, Bond, who was named
to the council's steering committee,
explained yesterday.

Fidel Castro postponed his sched-

There was no immediate indica-
tion of when the two would meet.
The informants said Castro put

Responsible sources in Havana

stood in the way of freedom for
the prisoners taken in the abor-
tive Cuban invasion in April 1961.

The High-Stepper is an ideal choice for Campus Type;G
#1 for two reasons. First, she is a fairly common spe-
cies-and second, she is easy to identify.
Just as the bird-watching beginner should concentrate
on the Robin, Sparrow and Cardinal before moving on
to more exotic species, the girl watching beginner should
master the observation and identification of types such
as the High-Stepper before progressing to rarer (and usu-
ally more difficult to identify) types.
As in all fine arts, the mastery of fundamentals is the
key to girl watching success. This mastery of fundamen-
tals is just as important in the art of cigarette making.
