Afro-Asian Leader
Calls for Sanctions
-* The leader .of the Asian-African
group called yesterday for effec-
tive measures, including ,, sanc-
tions, to force Israel to withdraw
finally and totally from Egypt.
Ambassador Abdul Monem
Rifa'i, of Jordan, president of the
27-nation group for February, told
newsmen he had expressed to Sec-
Sretary General Dag Hammar-
sk iold at a 40-minute conference
k the "deep. concern" of the group
over Israel's defiant stand.
Report Asked
Rifa'i said he asked Hammar-
skjold for a report and for a meet-
ing of the General Assembly by
Tuesday to consider what next
to do.
The Assembly last Saturday
asked Israel for the sixth time
. to get out of Egypt and requested
Hammarskjold to report at the
appropriate time.
Some members of the group, es-
pecially the Arab countries, are
pushing for such sanctions as
complete economic, financial and
military restrictions on Israel.
Nations Consulted
Others are studying more mod-
erate steps.
While the. Unitd States and
; other leading delegations here

To Convene,
Debate Policy
NEW YORK (P)--American
Communists will go into a four-
day convention at New York today
in a showdown struggle on future
The question is whether the
party will adopt what some party
members call "an American road
to socialism" or stand fast to the
traditional Marxist-Leninist line
handed down by the Kremlin.
The 3QU delegates representing
some 25,000 members will convene
in the Chateau Gardens, a Lower
East Side hall that rents space for
meetings and dances.
The Daily Worker, Communist
newspaper, said the hall was
chosen only after 60 other places
had rebuffed party attempts to
find convention space.
The convention, the party's
16th, will be its first since 1950.
The seven-year lapse came while

a number of the party leaders were
n prison on Smith Act charges of
teaching and adi ocating violent
overthrow of the government.
In an unprecedented move, the
party's National Committee pro-
posed this week that a group of
non - Communists interested in
civil liberties, peace and church
movements be invited to attend
the convention.
They will be admitted, however,
only if the delegates vote approv-
al of the idea.

society folk were "talking openly of a rift" between the royal couple.
Rift Denied Between Queen, Duke
Colville replied, "It is quite untrue tht there is any rift between
the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh."
The Sun's correspondent, Joan Graham, said in her dispatch:
"The whisper started last summer. It was then hinted by the
know-it-alls that the Duke of Edinburgh had more than a passing

Some day, 20 or 30 years from now, Luigi Dallapiccola will be as
well-known as composer Bela Bartok, Prof. Ross Finney of the music
department prophesized.
The Italian composer came to Ann Arbor yesterday on Prof.
Finney's invitation to give a public lecture on how he came to write
his composition, "Song of Captivity." ,
Dallapiccola, a relatively short man with an exceeding amount
of vitality and energy that "percolates" from him, says he has heard
few works by contemporary American composers so far. "I've been
having teeth trouble here," he explained, "and every time there has
been a concert, I have been at the dentists'. But with what little I
have heard," he continued, "I have been favorably impressed."
Dallapiccola's Best-Known Works
He has composed for stage works, the best-known of which are
the operas "Night Flight." "The Prisoner" and a religious play en-
titled "Job." Although Dallapiccola's works are little known in Ameri-
co, Prof. Finney said the Italian is a 'highly regarded composer in
"Muy operas are regularly performed in West Germany," Dallap-
iccola said. "It is the only country that really loves operas any more."
Currently Dallapiccola is teaching classes of composition, or-
chestra and chamber music at Queen's College in New York. "You
know," he said in heavily accented English, "It is very difficult to
teach in another language. After one week my students decided toI
compose a dictionary of my mistakes.
Students' Little-Known Work
"But then after another week they renounced the idea." The man
grinned a little and continued, "I don't know whether they gave up
because I learned too much English or because is was too much of a
task. Anyway, it won't be printed."
