Informants said that the shape of developments in Jakarta indi cated Suharto, the Indonesian army chief, was firmly in con trol and that Sukarno, now ap parently only a figurehead, hat little chance of staging a come- back. Suharto spoke and said he hat no intention of moving Indone- sia's political outlook either to the right or extreme left. In Troubled Indonesia Tough Soldier Takes Command KUALA LUMPUR, Malays! (AP) The man now reportec in control in Indonesia, Lt. Gen Suharto he has no first nam is a tough-looking soldier who talks softly. The combination could prov to be Suharto's most valuable asset in the critical period fac ing him. Known for his calmness undei pressure, the 45-year-old army man came into the limeligh when he rallied army, navy ant police forces to crush the Com munist-Ied coup attempt lasl October. Suharto, who had been heat of Kostrad the army strategic commander to rcplace Aehmad Yani, one of six generals tor- tured and slain by cnup support- ers. Gen. Abdul Haris Nasution then defense minister ant armed forces chief, was injurec while escaping a rebel death squad. A longtime friend, Nasu- tion supported Suharto's role as leader of the forces that broke the back of the coup. Suharto began an immediate crackdown on Communists. He neutralized the Halim air force base, used by coup forces as an operating center. Suharto then took over active control of the army. Two day: later President Sukarno official- ly installed him as army chief. When Sukarno reshuffled his Cabinet last Feb. 21, ousting Nasution and several other non- Communist military figures, Suharto remained unaffected. Since then, angry students have demonstrated almost daily against Sukarno and against Communist China but the troops under Suharto's command re- portedly have done little to stop them. This tacit support of the stu- dents, plus his strong actions against the Communists, make Suharto appear to be anti-Com- munist. But in view of Indone- sia's complex political situation observers prefer to rank him Draft Call Drops WASHINGTON (AP) The Defense Department's monthly draft call has dropped to men for April the lowest since last August shortly after the Viet Nam military buildup began. among the army generals who are called non-Communist. This category also includes Nasution. Suharto was ,b o r n Feb. 20, 1921, of poor parents in Jogjak- arta, Central Java. This city was once the seat of Indonesia's revolutionary government dur- ing the fight for independence against the Dutch.

Parts of (he proceedings were taped and broadcast over the Indonesian government ra- dio. Sukarno spoke first and said he was ordering Suharto to take control of the country and to maintain peace and order. Reliable sources in Singapore said earlier that Sukarno appar- ently had handed over political power to Suharto and remained in office only as a figurehead. The sources, who are in con- stant touch with devlopments in Indonesia, also said the pro- Peking foreign minister and first deputy premier, Subandrio, had been dismissed and had left Indonesia. But the Indonesian govern- ment radio said Subandrio at- tended the meeting at Sukarno's palace and the announcer re- ferred to Subandrio as first dep- uty premier. The Singapore sources said they have not yet been able to clarify whether Sukarno was forced to let Suharto take power but they said present indications are that the 64-year-old presi- dent had yielded to pressure from the army. They said Suharto is a firm supporter of former Defense Minister Gen. Abdul Haris Na- sution whom Sukarno dismissed last month. Suharto's appoint- ment indicated that army forces loyal to Nasution had decided to sia move against Subandrio and! heir, the capital "as a show of force." (U. S.
