He said Davis asked permissioii to .remove his coat .and put it back in his house before joining the officers and heading for the Warricfc County Jail at Boonville.

UN-Unit To Stop Mobutu Strongman's Grip Slipping LEOPOLDVILLE, The Congo (UPI) Informed sources dis- i closed that United Nations forces have taken up positions along the Thysville-Leopoldville highway to- day in an effort to prevent Congo- lese strongman Col. Joseph Mobu- tu from bringing troop reinforce- ments into the capital. The sources said the U.N. forces are armed with heavy equipment including anti-tank guns. If Mobu- tu presses ahead with plans to bring the 30-vehicle armored bri- gade from Thysville, a military clash could result, Gen.. I. Rikhye, special military adviser to the U.N. forces, was reported to have issued a strong warning to Mobutu not to try to bring in the elite armored bri- gade. Mobutu, whose grip over the Congo political situation has been slipping recently and whose Con- golese army troops already ir. Leopoldville have been rampaging in drunken -violence in parts of the city, apparently planned to bolster, his..pp.sition with the-arr mored force. Mobutu repeatedly, and bitterly has complained that the U.N. .has refused to recognize his regime and prevented him from arresting now-deposed Premier Patrice Lu- mumba. The U.N. officially is pledged to support the Lumumba govern- ment.' Mobutu's, council of high com- 'missioners announced earlier in the day that it has "legally" de- posed Lumumba. And it warned that it might indict the U.N. be- fore the Internatipnal Court of Jus- tice at the Hague if the U.N. re- fused to recognize it as the Con- go's only lawful authority. Meanwhile, informed sources re- ported that Mobutu had decided to stay in the Congo to stop Lu- mumba from comeback.

Nixon Steps Up Blasts on Foe ABOARD NIXON TRAIN (UPI) Vice President Richard M. Nixon whistle-stopped in West Vir- ginia and Ohio today with a charge that Sen. John M. Kennedy w.as. playing into the hands of Communist propaganda by at- tempting to "downgrade America in his campaign criticism of the Eisenhower administration. Starting out in Williamstown, W.Va., with the avowed intention of "putting the heat on" Kennedy and other leading Democrats, Nix- on drove across the Ohio Hiver to Marietta, Ohio, where he re- newed his attacks on his Demo- cratic-opponent. "I am tired of hearing our op- ponent downgrade the -United States and letting our enemies abroad have the benefit of Nixon said. He.pointed out that Pravda, thei newspaper in Moscow, Monday devoted two columns to statements by Kennedy and Adlai E.

But he in New York. Mobutu was having troubles with his who have terror- ized Leopoldville for days by ram- .paging wildly through the African quarters. Pedestrians were beaten women were stripped to the waists in the streets and there were unconfirmed reports that drunken troops broke into homes to rape and molest women. The observers said there were -mounting indications that Mobu- tu's five-week old "strongman" regime was crumbling, His con-j trol over the army is apparently slipping and he has been under increasing heavy criticisms from U.S. Politics Cheer Kennedy In Chicago Area WITH KENNEDY IN ILLINOIS (UPI) Sen. John F. Kennedy brought out thousands of Demo- crats in a tour through normally Republican country of suburban Chicago today, and told them that Vice President'Richard M. Nixon had deliberately created a "polit- ical bogeyman" to defeat federal aid to education. Kennedy and his party were al- most trampled in the enthusiastic surge of a crowd of 5.000 persons at Ldbertyville, home of former Democratic presidential nominee Adlai E. Stevenson. Kennedy urged voters in the crowd to decide whether they want to be "comfortable or con- cerned." There were evidences of the usually Republican views of the electorate in this area along the routes of Kennedy's fast moving caravan, and there were Demo- crats in large numbers along the motorcade route at Des Plaines, Wheeling, Libertyville, Lake Zu- rich and Barrington. A large piece of black bunting hung over the face of the Liberty- He also said Stevenson was be- i ville firehouse as the Kennedv ing quoted by .the Russians as saying" "the Communist world looks 'more dynamic.'J- This; -the GOP candidate said, was not the way to get along with the Rus- sians, particularly when the Unit- ed States "is'not second place to anyone." Nixon's steamy efforts to dis- credit the campaign statements of the Democratic candidate will be displayed nationally tonight over television. The vice president will .make lu's first nationwide paid po- litical television speech of the cur- rent campaign from Cincinnati. "The truth of the matter is that Senator Kennedy has been trying to win this election by recklessly downgrading the United the vice president said in remarks at Marietta, Ohio. "He has done this with "misleading statements, with misrepresentations, with half truths."

The tempo of charges and coun- ter charges between the two presi- dential candidates mounted as Kennedy began a 20-speech second day'of campaigning in Illinois. The Democratic presidential nominee said Nixon's expressed fear that "federal control" would result from federal aid for teach- ers' salaries raised a "false is- sue." HlinojSxDemocratic leaders were enthusiastic about Kennedy's showing in Monday's whirlwind tour of other mixed farm and in- dustrial centers in their state. Sen. aul Douglas, running and favored for re-election, predicted Kennedy "will carry Illinois." Kennedy's first day of cam- paigning in that state was marked by a fresh series of campaign ex- changes between Nixon and the senator. Kennedy chose to laugh off the Nixon accusation that the Demo- crat's various spending proposals had played a major part in the recent jump in gold prices on the London market and had created unrest abroad over stability of the dollar.
