Caught In Violence Perhaps only 10 per cent of the victims were involved with either the Moslem National Liberation Front, the FLN, or the European Secret Army Organization, the two opposing terrorist groups. Most were caught in the vicious circle of Algerian violence, repris- al raids, and massacres that start- ed as a warning but has only pro- voked more killing. Among the victims buried, in Moslem and Christian cemeteries are men and whose only crime was to belong to their ethnic group.

A Moslem quietly crept from the back and plunged a knife in his neck. Henri Baurin, 70, lived in the Oran suburb of Quatre Chemins.

(AP) United States has served notice that nations using force to settle colonial issues in Angola or anywhere else "can expect vigor- ous opposition from the United States whoever they may be." U.S. Chief Delegate Adlai E. Stevenson issued the warning Thursday after telling the General Assembly that if opponents of Portugal take up arms to wrest the African colony of Angola from Lisbon's control, the results could be disastrous for the U.N. Britain's Sir Patrick Dean also was expected to urge moderation in an address to the assembly to- day on the Angola crisis.

The 40-year-old Marine lieuten- ant colonel is expected to enter in a six-day period when the moon is in the desired position. Failure to launch by Saturday will mean a postponement until the next favorable period starting about Feb. 20.
