The Tripoli truce was shaky, however. It was accepted by the army only on strict condition that the rebels would not fire a single shot. It marked the first sign of a real break in the 54-day-old rebellion and increasing evidence that op- position forces in the north around Tripoli are weakening. The rebels began the revolt in Tripoli Kay 10. The government manned strong defenses there and was determined to keep the rebels out of the city lest they use it as a capital for a separate govern- ment.

The House didn't heed them as it beat back two attempts to hike the funds in the face of Eisen- hower's word that the cuts amounted to "reckless risks with our safety."
