Only Two Changes
Although the press has been
calling for "new and efficient
men," there were only two new
faces in the cabinet: Ipik Gada-
mana, West Java governor, who
becomes minister of home affairs
and regional autonomy; and Lt.
Gen. Nasution, Army chief of
staff who virtually ran the coun-
try during Sukarno's recent 67-
day absence on a long world tour.
The 40-year-old general con-
tinugs as head of the Army and
steps into politics for the first
time by becoming defense min-
lsetr as well.
An iron-willed disciplinarian,
he denies leaning toward East or
West in the Cold War but says he
is only "pro- my country."
But he has been credited with
a major role' in the recent fall of

well as a corresponding rise in

and the West.

Warns of Soviet Threat

The Soviet economic aid program seems to have assumed the
"modest role" of "furthering the forces of neutralism" in uncom-

On Berlin
WASHINGTON ( - Secretary
of State Christian A. Herter yes-
terday saw some possibility -
though he is not optimistic - of
reaching an agreement with the
Russians on Berlin.
The prospects, he indicated, will
depend on what answers the So-
viets give to a pair of questions
from the Allies when the East-
West foreign ministers conference
resumes in Geneva Monday.
Two Points
Sec. Herter said the Western
Allies will want to know:
1) Whether the Russians are
saying that Allied rights in Berlin
will expire atthe end of an 18-
month deadline, or whether they
will continue even though no
East-West agreement has been
reached by then, and
2) Whether the amount of time
allowed for negotiation on the
German question is itself a nego-
tiable point as far as the Russians
are concerned.
Charges Unclaity
Since the Geneva talks recessed
fruitlessly on June 20, he said, the
Reds havg left unclear whether
they are insisting on a deadline
to push the Allies out of Commu-
nist-encircled West Berlin.
The Western powers have made
clear they will not negotiate un-
der a deadline which they regard
as an "ultimatum."
The United States foreign af-
fairs chief declined to say wheth-
er a favorable answer from the
Communists on these questions
would constitute the progress that
President Dwight D. Eisehower
says is needed from the Geneva
conference before he would go to

ence. He said that the remark had
been just an off-hand comment

point, which he hoped would not
Reverses Statement
On another question he re-

was when he said he thought the

ing to find a solution to the Ger-
man question rather than just

dress to the nation 17 days ago

Williams Hails Passage
Of Record State Budgets
By The Associated Press
LANSING-Governor G. Mennen Williams signed five more 1959-
60 budget bills yesterday, including one for higher education, and
claimed a victory in the "battle of the budget."
The Governor praised the Republican-run Legislature for "recog-
nizing the needs of the state" in adopting nine budget bills totaling
$361 million which come within two per cent of meeting the Governor's
spending recommendations. "Now
if the Legislature will enact a tax
program which is fair and' work- l

money to pay these appropria-
tions, we will be back on the road #

BIENHOA, South Viet Nam (P)
- Terrorists with tommy guns in-

an old American movie.
The government blamed Com-
The attack went on for ten
minutes. One of the attackers was
blown to pieces by his own home-
made bomb. Two Vietnamese army
guards and a Vietnamese boy were
killed in an ensuing gun battle.
Watching Movie
Six American service men -
members of a military aid group
-were in the mess hall watching
the movie.
Beside the two dead, a captain
was wounded.
The three American survivors
could see the attackers peering in
through screen windows as bullets'
smashed into the floor and walls.
In a lull in the firing, the Ameri-
cans made a break for the main
door of the mess hall, sped outside
and summoned two companies of
South Vietnamese soldiers.
Flee to River
The Vietnamese drove off th'
attackers, believed to total about
ten, who fled to the nearby Dong-
nai River. They apparently had
come up by the river.
Maj. Dale R. Buis of Imperial
Beach, Calif., and M.Sgt. Chester

were killed.
Capt. Howard B. Boston of
Blairsburg, Iowa, was wounded

Team Members
The six Americans were mem-
bers of an eight-man United States
Military Assistance Advisory Group
(MAAG) team training the sol-
diers of anti - communist South
Viet Nam in the use of American-
supplied weapons.
Indicating that this may be the
signal for a new wave of terrror-
ism, authorities said the attackers
in this city of 200,000 seemed to
be well informed of United States
army habits.
There had been no attacks on
Americans here by partisans of
Communist North Viet Nam since
a series of bombings in the
autumn of 1957 at Saigon, 20 miles
south of Bienhoa.
The terrorists chose a time when
they knew the Americans would be
assembled for a nightly movie.
