Macmillan Refuses To_

By The Associated Press
LONDON-A painful illness re-
quiring three months convales-
cence struck Prime Minister Har-
old Macmillan yesterday, hours
after he had advised close asso-
ciates at the Conservative Party
conference that he intends to stay
on as prime minister.
Macmillan was taken to King
Edward Hospital Monday night
for an operation to remove a blad-
der obstruction caused by an in-
firmity of the prostrate gland.
Meanwhile, at Blackpool, where
Macmillan's Tory colleagues gath-
ered for the opening yesterday of
the Conservative Party's annual
conference, word of his illness re-
sulted in confusion among the
Sudden News
The illness struck with sudden-
ness only a few hours after Mac-
milla let it be known he was de-
termined to stay in power and
hoped to attend another East-West
summit conference to seek a fur-
ther lowering of world tension.
This is the first conservative
conference since the Profumo
scandal which almost toppled the
Macmillan government. Lord Den-
ning's report on the case - in
which he absolved Macmillan of,
security lapses, but blamed him
for not spotting John Profumo's
original lies about his association
with Christine Keeler-was ex-
pected to cause party rows.
At the last conference Macmil-
lan tied his political future to en-
try into the Common Market. This
was torpedoed by French Presi-
dent Charles de Gaulle. Britain
also had a winter of mounting un-
employment and what many con-
servatives considered a humiliation
over United States cancellation of
the Skybolt Project.
May Lose Power
The immediate reaction among
most conservatives was that Mac-
millan's term of power must be
drawing to a close. He already has
served nearly seven years, longer

DAMASCUS (A')-Syria and Iraq
jointly proclaimed yesterday a
military union and creation of a
supreme defense council headed
by a supreme commander.
Shortly after the radios of both
Damascus and Baghdad alerted
listeners to an announcement of
great portent, the Syrian┬░ radio
announced the military merger.
Gen. Amin Hafez, president of
Syria's n a tion a l revolutionary
council, told his people that the
union will take in all troops of
both countries.
Supreme Council
He said that a supreme defense
council will be created. It will con-
sist of a supreme commander aid-
ed by three members from each
country to be appointed by both
national revolutionary councils.
Iraq's defense minister, Gen.
Mahdi Saleh Ammash, has been
named supreme commander of the
unified army. Damascus will be

Both Iraq and Syria, ruled by1
the Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party,1
have been working toward a union
since their plans for a three-way
union with President Nasser's
United Arab Republic '(Egypt) ,fell1
apart recently. Committees are al-
ready working on the blueprints
for an economic merger. (Syria]
formerly was a partner of Egypt in
the UAR.)
In Baghdad, President Field
Marshal Abdel Salam Aref read
a statement to the Iraqi people]
over the radio and television sta-
Aref disclosed that Iraq hady
sent an official delegation to Cairo
last week to try talking the UAR1
into joining the new union before
its official- proclamation.,
"But our brothers in the UAR
said that because of special cir-J
cumstances they would not join+
the union at the time being. But4
they gave it their support andi
blessing," Aref said.1

He claimed one reason behind
the military union was to enable
Syria and Iraq to face Israel's
plans to divert the waters of the
River Jordan into Israeli territory
next summer.
Aref noted that the union was
open for the UAR and the other
Arab countries to join.
Advises Unity
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
disagrees with Sen. Barry Gold-
water (R-Ariz) on some civil rights
and tax issues but the two will
work together for a terse 1964
party platform.
Eisenhower called on Republi-
cans in an interview with the As-
sociated Press for "a good lively
fight" at next year's convention
over a short, "cleancut program of
action" and the nomination of a
presidential candidate who sup-
ports its majority views.

Although we are a chemical manufacturing com-
pany, the P&G Engineering Division employs more
ME's than ChE's -as many EE's as ChE'sl
In fact, we employ ALL kinds of engineers in
developing and manufacturing a widely diversified
line that includes soaps and detergents; toilet goods;
food products; paper products; wood pulp; and bleach.
We seek men with both ability and imagination,
interested in solving problems in radically new and
better ways.
You won't be chained to a drawing board;we
give substantial responsibility early. Typical early
assignments might range from design of a $10 mil-
lion paper machine to development of logic circuits
for a new automated facility.
For those who are interested, early opportuni-
ties in technical management are available.
We promote only from within, on a merit basis.
We do not know of any other organization where abil-
ity is more promptly recognized, or where opportunity
to advance is greater.
