Defying French security -forces. U. S. Relaxes Pressure For Immediate Action On Cuba European terrorists blew up a special police hideout in Algiers Monday, knocked out power and electricity in the tightly guarded administrative compound of Ro- chcr Noir, 30 miles east of the1 citj, and launched a radio appeal to the French army to revolt. Arms Stolen Late Monday night police sources reported several thefts of arms in the Algiers area. One was a holdup of a truck loaded with submachine-guns, carried out by three men dressed in riot police uniforms. Harassed officials, sheltered be- hind barbed wire and armored cars in Rocher Noir, said they were fighting against heavy odds because the terrorist underground had accomplices on virtually all levels of the administration. Obstruction "The Secret Army could take over Algiers in half a day if it wanted one official said. It appeared, however, that a takeover of the city was not an immediate aim of the terrorist group fighting to maintain French rule in Algeria. Apparently it hoped to obstruct any independ- ence agreement betwen France and the Algerian rebels by dem- onstrating through its campaign rf terror that President Charles de Gaulle's government could not PUNTA DEL ESTE, Uruguay United States and its 13 Latin-American supporters backed away today from a de- mand for an immediate vote by the hemispheric foreign ministers conference to exclude Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro's re- gime from the Organization of American States. The majority group eased its stand in an effort to break a dead- lock over how and when the sus- pension should take effect. The conference, which was sup- posed to end Monday, continued to drag on after hours of fruitless bargaining. As hopes faded for an early adjournment, United States appeared to suffer a enforce such an agreement. Spectacular In one of its most spectacular acts, the terrorist group smashed a palm-shaded villa, overlooking Algiers with a bomb smuggled into the building in a typewriter case. Buried under the debris were some 20 members a special commando set-up to seek out members of the Secret Army. Three men survived, two Viet- namese and a Moslem. Ambulance workers said they carried 20 bod- ies from the wreckage. The explosion shook the Ameri- can consulate general 400 yards away. "Road Of Honor" While frantic telephone calls re- ported the incident to the top gov- ernment representative in Algeria Jean Morin, a plastic bomb knocked out power in Mcrin's bar- blow. The 14-nation group met for two hours and named a three-'nation committee to draft a compromise amendment to be offered to the six nations holding out for a vel- vet glove approach.

They scheduled another bar- gaining session today in an effort to win over six of Latin America's biggest and most influential na- tions demanding a delay in the formal ouster of Cuba. The six were Brazil. Mexico. Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Ecuador. Both sides emerged from a closed-door, eight-hour bargaining session early today asserting some progress had been made on the issue threatening a deep split in inter-American relations. The foreign ministers went without dinner Monday night in an effort to break the impasse. After the session there were hints of compromise in the works. One conference informant said the United States appeared to. be leaning toward what he called the Argentine view that it would be better to have all. 20 nations cen- sure Cuba than a majority out- law it. An Argentine spokesman said Rusk "with infinite patience" seemed to have brought the op- posing sides toward a solution whereby each OAS body would cide on excluding Cuba in line1 with the proposed conference dec- laration that the Castro regime is incompatible with the inter- American system. The Brazilian-led bloc has agreed with the others on such censure of the Castro regime but contends the present OAS charter (Continued on Page Two) Daughter, Son-ln-Law Of Soviet Premier Lunch At White House Kennedy Sends Congress Plan For New Department Report On Progress U.

The general picture for the ci- vilian power program -was mixed: "Operating activities were en- couraging while construction ac- tivities were discouraging. As a result of the successful operation of thr.ee large-scale power reac- tors, plus the support of three ex- perimental planti, some electrici- ty- was produced by nuclear en- ergy every day of the year. On the other hand, several other re- actors which were expected to be operating in 1961 did not because of delays in construction or tech- nical difficulties." "Encouraging" The "encouraging" records were at the Shippingport. Pa., station, the Dresden plant near Morris, 111., and thc Yankee plant at Rowe, Mass., the commission said. The report made it clear that no civilian power plant so far is near the goal of economic nuclear power, as compared with present rates for conventionally produced electrical power. The nation's investment in atomic energy facilities for re- search, power generation, produc- tion, totals billion.

Zorin has accused colonial pow- ers of abetting Tshombe in such action. A U.S. spokesman said the United States feels council debate unnecessary at this time.
