States will soon propose to the
International Monetary Fund a
study of ways to overhaul and

reported yesterday.
The United States will take the
initiative before the finance min-
isters of 93 countries, gathering
here Sept. 30 for the anmnal meet-
ings of the IMF and the World
Bank, a high official said.
There is every reason to. be-

At Conference ,
NICOSIA, Cyprus (P)-The split
in the African-Asian People's Sol-
idarity Conference became more
acute yesterday with a Soviet de-
mand that members of its execu-
tive committee take a definite
stand on the limited nuclear test-
ban treaty.
Conference circles said such a
9 move is violently opposed by the
Communist Chinese delegation,
which threatens a withdrawal from
? the conference if it approves the
The outcome of the Soviet-Chi-
nese quarrel and its effect on the
future of the African-Asian soli-
darity group will be settled in se-
cret committee meetings.

executive committee, which so far
has been taken up by speeches by
the heads of delegations, delivered
in open sessions.

is important to the long-run ex-
pansion of the world economy,"
Heller testified.
"The elimination of the current
United States balance of payments
deficit will not mean the end of
world balance of payments prob-
lems. Other countries will have
deficits when we get into surplus,
and we ourselves can. expect the
periodic recurrence of deficits."
Since it would take years to
plan, adopt, and institute a major
alteration of world payments ma-
chinery, Heller and others have
urged that formal discussions be
started promptly.
Secretary of the Treasury Doug-
las Dillon, who argued a year ago
that there was no urgency in the
matter, is understood to have come
around to the view that prelimin-
ary inquiries might well be begun
-especially since the government's
f o r c e f u l balance-of-payments
measures have shown the world
that the United States would not
simply be trying to use interna-
tional machinery to bail itself out
of its payments difficulties.
The question of exactly which
international body might under-
take the study remains open. Some
officials have suggested the IMF
itself but there is precedent for
having major problems of pay-
ments policy undertaken - with
IMF's support and sponsorship-
by smaller groups representing the
industrial "creditor" countries
most directly involved.

SAIGON ()-United States of-
ficials awaited with little optimism
yesterday for a response from
President Ngo Dinh Diem to what
a high official source called a for-
mal American request for removal
of Ngo Dinh Nhu from South Viet
Nam's government.
Nhu is Diem's younger brother,
counselor and intelligence chief. He
is widely regarded as the master-
mind of the military crackdown on
Buddhist opponents of the govern-
ment Aug. 21 and subsequent oper-
ations against rebellious Saigon
Nhu Ouster?
A high official source said Tues-
day United States Ambassador
Henry Cabot Lodge had asked
Diem to oust Nhu and suggested
that "it would be advisable" for
Nhu to leave the country.
Broad hints from Washington
had been ignored. Lodge's request
may get the same treatment. Unit-
ed States officials expressed belief
Diem, 62, will reject it. He has said
repeatedly he regards Nhu, 52, as
extremely helpful.
Both the brothers have denied
speculation that Nhu, whose at-
tractive wife is the bachelor presi-
dent's official hostess, in fact con-
trolled the government.
President John F. Kennedy sug-
gested in a television interview last
week that a change in personnel
would help Diem's administration
to regain popular support for its
United States-backed war against
Communist guerrillas.
Vatican Pressure
The archbishop brother of Diem
abruptly left Rome yesterday and
flew to New York, disclosing that
the Vatican ordered him to stop
talking about South Viet Nam's
explosive political situation.
Archbishop Pierre Martin Ngo
Dinh Thuc landed at Idlewild Air-
port in late afternoon, telling
newsmen that "I am coming to see
my friends."
His departure from Rome was a
dramatic indication of growing
concern within the Vatican about
unique family aspects of the Sai-
gon crisis.
Stocks Achieve
All-Time Highs
In Heavy Trade
NEW YORK UP) - The stock
market bounced into new high
grounds yesterday in very heavy
trading, although late profit tak-
ing skimmed some of the cream off
the advance.
The Dow Jones average gained
2.91 to 740.34, exceeding the pre-
vious record high of 737.98 estab-
lished last Thursday. The prior
peak of 734.91 had been attained
Dec. 13, 1961.
Volume soared to 6.68 million
shares from 5.32 million Tuesday
and was second to the year's high-
est of 7.2 million Friday.
Trading in the first hour was
the heaviest in 26 years. In that
period 1.84 million shares changed
hands, compared with 1.11 million
Tuesday and 2,212,200 Oct.
19, 1937.
Brokers said buyers' enthusiasm
was spurred by the House Ways
and Means Committee's favorable
vote on the $11 billion tax reduc-
tion bill, higher retail sales and
the market's ability to surge back
from two days of decline.
