Longer Life
Now Forseen
If you're 65 years old in 1970
you can expect to live to the
age of 79 and have an even
chance of making it, a New
York life insurance expert said
here yesterday.
Speaking at the conference
on gerontology, study of old
age, at the 'U', Dr. Louis Dub-
lin of the Institute of Life In-
surance said that by 1970 a to-
tal of 21 million Americans will
be 65 or over.
"White males can expect to
live 14.1 years after they reach
the age of 65. White females
who reach 65 can expect to live
17.8years more," said Dublin

Independence was cited by Edwin F. Stanton, former United
States ambassador to Thailand, as a big step toward the curing
of instability in Southeast Asian countries in his speech, "Security
in Southeast Asia."
Restlessness and confusion reigns among the Southeastern peo-
ples due to the gorilla warfare and underground work of Chinese
Communists, Stanton said.f
He said that the Communists took advantage of the South-
east Asian desire for independence after World War II and infil-
trated the countries where manyF

To Consult
On Red Talks
Hamrnarsk j old
Notes Open Door
Ambassador Henry Cabot lodge
Jr. said yesterday he was confident
that U.N. Secretary General Dag
Hammarskj old had made progress
in his Peiping talks and "that our
fliers will be free."
Lodge made his statement after
receiving a report from the sec-
retary general who returned yes-
terday from a globe-circling flight
on which he appealed to Premier
Chou En-lai to release 11 Ameri-
can fliers and other U.N. personnel
held by Red China.
Lodge Statement
Lodge's statement follows:
"I intend to consult as soon as
possible with Secretary of State
Dulles and we will study with close
attention what Mr. Hammarskjold
said. There is naturally' disap-
pointment that the immediate re-
lease of our fliers was not effectu-
ated, but I am confident that prog-
tess has been made and that our
fliers will be free.
"Assuredly we will not-and
must not-cease our efforts until
they are.
"The situation is delicate and
we must have both patience and
'First Stage'
On his arrival in New York,
Hammarskjold described his Pei-
ping irisit as the "first stage" of
his efforts to release the fliers.
He indicated the door is open
to further contact and called for
restraint on all sides.
Hammarskjold Statement
He issued the following state-
ment as he stepped off the plane:
"My visit to Peiping was a first
stage in my efforts to release the
11 American fliers and the other
United Nations Command person-
nel still detained. I feel that my
talks with Mr. Chou En-lai, pre-
mier-foreign minister of Red Chi-
na, were definitely; useful for this
purpose. We hope to be able to
continue our contacts. The door
that has been opened can be kept
open given restraint on all sides."
Hammarskjold was met at the
airport by high UN officials. He
sped to his office ar : then to his
home. Less than two hours after
his arrival he was closeted in his
anartment with chief American

will and friendship with the peo-
ple of the United States, though
this reservoir has declined," stated
He added, "the future of 200
million or more Southeast Asian
people who want the rights which
we fought for is something need-
ing a lot of support."
The experienced Southeast As-
ian diplomat cited four proposals
directed towards establishing in-
dependence for the Southeast As-
ian countries, which entailed the
manifestation of support by the
United States for Southeast Asian
independence through United Na-
