partial victory in the 1964 leg islative action in this field but the Supreme Court took it out of our hands The Farm Bu reau fought for the Shaff Plan of reapportionment which the voters rejected last year and tried during the special legisla tive session this year to keep a strong voice in the legislature for rural areas Urban areas will be much stronger in the legislature elect ed Nov 3 to take office in Jan uary The increased urban repre sentation will make our work in the legislative field more diffi cult but not hopeless Ander son said We will need to work harder than we have in the

Prime Minister Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya appealed Tuesday to the Congolese rebels in Stanleyville to spare the life of American missionary Paul Carlson threatened with execu tion The message was directed to Congolese rebel leader Christo phe Gbenye apparently at the request of Secretary of State Dean Rusk Rusk appealed to Kenyatta to intercede as chair man of the African committee trying to end civil conflict in the Congo The medical missionary from Rolling Hills Calif was sched uled to die at noon Monday on a charge of military spying a Stanleyville broadcast said Since then the Stanleyville Ra dio has been silent Kenyatta once jailed by the British as leader of the anti white Mau Mau terrorists in Keyna noted that he had ap pealed Sunday for humane treatment for all civilians held in Stanleyville In Bangui Central African Republic Mrs Carlson declared her husband 36 never had been a spy He wanted above all to ease the miserable condition of the Congolese Mrs Carlson said She said she last saw her hus band Sept 6 after he brought her and their two young chil dren to the neighboring Central African Republic town of Kern ba He could have stayed at Kemba she said but he pre ferred to return to Ouassolo where his patients needed him The United States has warned the rebels they will be held to account if Carlson is harmed and Rusk said if the missionary were executed it would be an outrageous violation of interna tional law and of accepted standards of humanitarian con duct Rusk said rebel charges Carlson was a US Army major on a spy mission were patently false He said the United States holds insurgent leaders direct ly responsible for the safety of Dr Carlson and of all other Americans in areas under rebel control In Chicago Dr Ardcn Alm quist executive secretary of Covenant World Missions in which Carlson served said the captive missionary definitely is not a spy US Embassy officials in Leo poldville indicated attempts were being made to contact the rebels through the International Red Cross Carlson was captured two months ago close to Yakoma on the Congos northern frontier after he had refused to leave his Congolese patients The mis sionary had taken his wife and two children to safety hi the neighboring Central African Re public Many whites most of them Belgians have been shot or hacked to death by rebel war riors but Carlson is believed to be the first sentenced to death by the rebel command Thou sands of Congolese have been slain in the struggle by Commu nistbacked rebel tribesmen against the central government of Premier Moise Tshombe

forces in a drive on Stanleyville DR PAUL CARLSON Will he bt frted fraud indictments Strikes damage economy Worst jolt since I960 By ADREN COOPER WASHINGTON AP The General Motors strike last month gave the nations econo my its roughest jolt since the 1960 recession and the effect may linger if the current strike at Ford Motor Co puts anpther extended damper on production Government economists fret ted Tuesday about the possibility that labor disputes could cause a general business slowdown after an almost uninterrupted climb of four years If the Ford stoppage is settled quickly there remains the threat of a nationwide rail strike next week There is talk of trouble in the steel industry even though dead line is months away Both government and busi ness economists have expressed concern over the possibility that wage settlements such as the one at General Motors could lead to a heavy round of infla tion after four years of relative stability Now they also face the possibility that the same labor management disputes could lead to a sag in the economy I believe we have to worry more about keeping things roll ing than we do about inflation one administration official said The Federal Reservve Board reported Monday that its index of industrial production had fall en from 1340 in September to 1317 in October The scale is based on a value of 100 for the 195759 average Thus the Octo ber rate was 317 per cent high er than that of the late 1950s The October drop was only about 17 per cent but it was the first time in more than a year that the scales had dipped and the size of the decline was the largest since December 1960 near the end of a reces sion There was a considerably larger decline in industrial production during the nation wide steel strike in 1959 The Federal Reserve said that recovery in November will be dampened by the beginning of strikes at other plants in the auto industry Although deliveries of aew cars fell 30 per cent retail sales continued to climb in oth er lines and the overall effect was a decline of only 3 per cent for the month MRS NHUS BILL PAID BEVERLY HILLS CalifW Kn Nfo Dinh Nnun yearold Jill at Beverly Wilshfare Ho hu been paid
