The denial came In a communique announcing Uiat searchers for the missing Lumumba had found a car he and two poUticet associates used to escape from a farmhouse prison at Mutahatsa, 220 miles west of EUaabethvine. late Thursday night. Some Western observers in the Congo said they suspect Lumumba is dead or that is escape was engmeered so he could be shot while trying to escape. The Katanga government, taking note of these rumors, aaid la a communique: "Tlie Katanga government denies it organiaed the escape. It appears his (Lumumba's) escape was mads possible by some fault or intervention by his guards, and ttds «10 be subject to in<iulry." The conununlque aald tbe ear, a black Ford sedan found about 20 mUes north of Kas»Jl wtaeta Lumumba was Imprisoned, was identified as ttie MrtomobUe be aa his companions seised after OTerpowerinf their fuards. • • • WE8TEKN observers fear that, dead or alive, Lumumba preeeats the Congo wlUi its greatest threat of aU-out civil war. His supporters control about one-third of the Congo, and in the past l3s fiery oratory has been capable of whipping them to a frenzy. U Lumumba Is dead, observers said, his supporters in Oriental and Klvu provinces almost certainly would embark on a path of vengeance, possibly against the white populaUon. If he is alive, they said, he will be able to assume acUve leadership of his followers and touch off an all-out major clvU war. The Katanga government communique said the escape car which searchers found "was started by unscrewing the IgniUon lock and Joining Uie IgnlUon wires together. "There was no sign that the occupants of car (found damaged on the road) had been hurt in the crash, and all traces of th«lr movements after leaving the daift-aged car bad been obliterated by rain and people passing Uie spot afterwards." The feeling here that Lumumba was already dead was strengthened among observers.
