Algeria TSEING up to its neck in trouble nothing hew in that land which for the past four cen turies or so has been known a Algeria During most of the thirty centuries or so since it broke into history it has been a stage for violent action First of the recorded conquests was by the Carthaginians eight hundred years or so before the Birth of Christ Next came the Romans under whom incident ally there was a couple of cen turies of relative peace Next came the Vandals then the By zantine conquest With the Arab invasion came the first exposure to the Moslem faith This was followed by the Turkish conquest and a continua tion of the Islam faith but in a little different form The Turks were succeeded by the French but this was no overnight opera tion Algiers for some 300 years was the headquarters of the much feared Barbary pirates who drew from our infant govern ment this defiant warning Mil lions for defense but not one cent for tribute This era ended when the French began taking over in 1830 Four years later the French had pushed out their holdings in rtNorth Africa to war ernorgeneral By 1848with taking over of the region cen tered about Constantine the French conquest was regarded as completed For the next half century France concerned itself with colonizing its newly won terri tory Settlers in the land across the Mediterranean were largely recruited from the ranks of un employed To speed up the proc ess substantial subsidies and perquisites were offered Because there was no organ ized resistance from the nomad ic tribesmen in the boundless Sahara to the south France was free to push its claims to the desertas far as it wished As a result maps today show Algeria to have an area of 851000 square again as big as Alas ka and some three times as big as Texas

exactly the size of our I happen to remember from my time spent there that there is a pro nounccd similarity in appear ance between parts of Algeria and the western reaches of our Cornhusker state French colonists in Algeria took with them the enterprise and the drive which distin guishes Europeans from peoples who have come from the Middle Under their egis the des ert was made to bloom and cities such as Algiers and Oran were made to spring up in the manner of their beloved Paris For many decades the native Arabs and Berbers stood by at most as if transfixed by a mir acle taking place before their very eyes There was a willing liess to fit into the overall pat tern of progress in themenial tasks It wasnt until the wind of nationalism and independence began to sweep across the world that the natives began to flex their muscles and resent ex ploitation from the outside In the months and perhaps years ahead the patience of the free world is going to be tried by the resistance of these French settlers to abandon what for almost a century has been building up as a vested right in Algeria From their point of view it will be tantamount to being asked to surrender what has been decades in the making The statistics will be impressive ly on their side When France look over and began its assimilation program in 1856 the territory known as to 2 2 Ya n ks killed in ambush SAIGON
