China Head Comes
For Water Festival
RANGOON, Burma (A") - Pre-
mier Chou En-Lai of Communist
China emerged from behind the
Bamboo Curtain yesterday to open
a campaign of smiles in southeast
Asia. He was inundated with
Thousands of Burmese were cel-
ebrating their annual water festi-
val as he arrived from Peiping and
Chou was drenched to the skin.
Chou joined in the celebration,
which involves throwing water
and being soaked in return as a
sign of good will, and friendship
before the Burmese New Year to-
The suave Communist leader,
usually sober and determined,
seemed to enjoy himself. He shook
hands eagerly and dressed him-
self in Burmese costume-bright
yellow head binding, orange -
yellow jacket (Premier U Nu's
party colors), green checked sa-
rong and rubber slippers with
orchid toe straps. He rode through
town in an open truck.
It was a fitting and, for Chou,
a happy beginning to a three-
nation tour aimed at restoring

Africa its quietest day in almost
a month but the threat of new
work boycotts next week over-
This was a work holiday and a
holiday for the courts which have

It also was apparently a rest

police, who have been staging
daily raids on so-called inciters
and intimidators. At nightfall no
raids had been reported for the

quiet in the sprawling settlements
outside Durban, which have been
the scene of violent clashes.
From Pretoria came word that

Indian charges of Chinese invas-

To Visit Nepal
From New Delhi Chou goes on
to the Himalayan kingdom of
Nepal for more talks. The Chinese
attempted to put on a peaceful
race for the New Delhi talks by
signing a border agreement last
month with Nepalese Prime Min-
ister B. P. Koirala.
But when Koirala got home
from Peiping he complained the
Chinese wanted to take over his
country's greatest natural won-
der, Mt. Everest. He said the
world's tallest mountain would
remain Nepalese territory.
Arriving at Rangoon airport,
Chou was welcomed by U Nu as
"an old friend whose great con-
tribution toward Chinese-Burmese
friendship is already a matter of
Chou and U Nu are expected to
work out details of the agreement,
which was Red China's opening
gun in the diplomatic friendship
This is Chou's first trip out of
Communist China in three years
and his hosts took all precautions
to see that water would be the
worst thing thrown at him.
Thirteen anti-Communist Chi-
nese were arrested at the request
of the Red Chinese embassy. A
number of Indians holding Bur-
mese citizenship were detained.
The only trouble came at City
Hall, where an eager crowd got
out of hand and pressed into a
barrier about 30 yards from Chou.
Police shoved them back with
clubs, but a few people were blood-
ied and dozens of Burmese slippers
were thrown in anger.
Bodyguards Protect Chou
A half-dozen Chinese 'body,-
guards jumped in to protect Chou
but the trouble cleared up in min-
utes and they returned to the
day's work-drying off the boss
from bowls of water thrown by
Burmese maidens, movie stars and
even the Burmese security chief,
who got carried away by the holi-
day spirit. At times Chou was
gasping for breath.
The real political star of the
day was U Nu, back in office after
a period of army rule. Leading the
soggy cavalcade through his polit-
ical stronghold in the capital, the
mild-mannered Buddhist politic-
ian got into a 15-minute water
fight with laughing Burmese.
By that time Chou, Foreign
Minister Chen Yi and other mem-
bers of the 30-man Chinese party
were beginning to grow bored.
They sneaked back to the truck
and waited while U Nu made
WASHINGTON UP) - F r e n c h
diplomats reported last night that
Communist Czechoslovakia has
agreed to sell Cuba some Soviet-j
built MIG jet fighters.
The state department said it
had no information on any such
Cuban-Czech deal. The United
States has banned weapons ship-
ments to the Caribbean area for
The French informants reported
that the fighters would be part of
a barter trade deal between Cuba
and Czechoslovakia. Cuba would
provide sugar and other agricul-
tural commodities, they said.
Rumors about such a sale have
bobbed up frequently in the past
two months. American authorities,
who have been closely following
Cuba's efforts to bolster its air
force, have apparently never been
able to confirm them.
Deputy Soviet Premier Anastas
I. Mikoyan, while visiting Cuba in
February, is known tohhave offer-

fighters wherever he could find

LAS MERCEDES, Cuba WA) -
Manuel Beaton and his band of
mountain guerrillas were believed
falling back deeper into the moun-
tains of eastern Cuba yesterday.
Fidel Castro's troops were re-
ported trying to encircle them on
Cuba's highest peak.
Little chance of survival is given
for Castro's former captain and
fellow-revolutionary. B e a t o n 's
band is estimated at around 50
men, and the bearded Prime Min-;
ister is leading a force of crack
mountaineers and veterans of
campaigns that toppled the Batis-
Hikers Turned Back
The first clear-cut indication of
where the search'is concentrated
came from a group of Havana
Military Academy hikers.
They were turned back late last
night at La Plata, Castro's old
command post in the heart of the
Sierra Maestra. They had planned
to scale 6,560-foot Pico Turquino,
Cuba's highest mountain but
authorities barred the way.
The cadets said they learned

were converging on La Plata from

talks today, but little of major
import is expected. Gen. Ne Win,

WHO WENT TO THE PROM-AND WHY
"Hello," said the voice on the telephone. "This is Werther
Sigafoos. I sit next to you in psych. I'm kind of dumpy and
I always wear a sweat shirt."
"I'm afraid I don't remember you," said Anna Livia Plura-
"I'm the one whose lecture notes you've been borrowing for
two years," said Werther.
"Oh, yes!" said Anna Livia. "What do you wish, Walter?"
"Werther," said Werther. "What I wish is to take you to the
Junior Prom next April."
"But this is November 27, Westnor," said Anna Livia.
"Werther," said Werther. "Yes, I know, but you are so round
and beautiful that I was afraid you might have a date already"
"As a matter of fact I do, Wingate," said Anna Livia.
"Werther," said Werther. "Oh, drat!"
Anna Livia did not really have a date, but she was expecting
to be asked by Stewart Stalwart, athletic and BMOC, handsome
as Apollo, smooth as ivory, wearer of faultless tweeds, smoker
of Marlboro cigarettes which even without his other achieve-
ments would stamp him as a man with know-how, with a
pleasure-oriented palate. If you think flavor went out when
filters came in, try a Marlboro. This one brims with zest and
zip and the good, mild taste so dear to those who smoke for the
pure joy of it. Get yourself a pack of Marlhoros and listen to
your friends say, "There, by George, goes a smoker who knows
a hawk from a handsaw."
But I digress. Anna Livia waited and waited for Stewart
Stalwart to ask her, but two days before the Prom, to every-
body's amazement, he asked Rose-of-Sharon Kinsolving, a non-
descript girl with pavement-colored hair and a briefcase.
