Bell as head of the U.S. Foreign aid program today. Bell will be replaced in the Budget Bureau by Ker- mit Gordon, now a member of the President's Council of Economic Advisers. The White House said Bell will remain in his present post until late December, to help get Ken- nedy's budget in shape to present to Congress in January. Fowler Hamilton sent Kennedy his resignation as foreign aic chief earlier this month. The White House announced Kennedy has accepted it as of Dec. 7. Between that date and the time Bell takes over, the foreign aid agency will be headed by Deputy Administrator Frank Coffin. The head of foreign aid bears the title of administrator of the Agency for International Develop- ment. Bell has been budget director .since Kennedy took office. Prior to that, he had been secretary of the Graduate School of Public Ad- ministration at Harvard, a posi- tion equivalent to chief adminis- trative officer. Bell, 43, spent three years, from 1954 to 1957, in Pakistan as field supervisor of a group of advisers to the Pakistani government's planning board. Harvard recruit- ed the team of advisers, which was financed by the Ford Founda- tion, to help plan Pakistan's eco- nomic development. Between that period and 1959, when he became secretary of the Graduate School of Public Admin- istration; Bell lectured at Harvard on economics and served as -a. re- search associate In the school he later administered. Gordon, 46, is a professor of economics at Williams College. Laotians Say Rival Armies Will Combine VIENTIANE, Laos three-party government Tuesday night announced agreement on a plan to unite its rightist, pro-Com- munist and neutralist armed forces into a single .national army. A similar agreement on creation of a police force also was an- nounced. The task of carrying out the two mergers was given to government commissions composed of mem' bers of the three factions. The agreements followed a day of tension in which neutralist and pro-Communist Pathet Lao forces exchanged shots at the airstrip on the Plaine des Jarres in central Laos where they maintain joint headquarters. The neutralist premier, Prince Souyanna Phouma, said "a few rifle shots" were exchanged after the Pathet Lao shot down an American-chartered cargo plane was taking in supplies to his troops. The pilot and copilot, both Americans, were killed in the crash. The third member the crew, a cargo specialist and also an American, was injured but not seriously. Their names were with held. Souvanna denounced the Pathet Lao for firing on the plane against his orders and summoned the Pa- thet Lao chief, his hald-brother Prince Souphanouvong, for a talk. The agreement on the armed forces merger came out of a later session between Souvanna, Sou- phanouvong and Public Works Minister Ngon Sananaikone. San- anaikone. is representing the .right- wing faction while its leader. Gen. Phoumi Nosavan, is in Moscow on a trade mission. The plan calls for an army of men with equal numbers .of men drawn from neutralist, right- ist and Pathet Lao forces. All other armed forces would be de- mobilized by a government com- mission.

Hundreds of children gathered in the wet street to greet their perennial favorite. At times, Santa was almost completely hidden by the masses of chil- dren surrounding him. Reactions to the jolly fat man ranged from awe to fright. Santa's early visit signalled the of-icil beginning of yule season and was sponsored by local civic organizations and businessmen. Santa arrived at his destination in an Ada fire engine, loaded with gifts and candy for the youngsters.

Swedish Delegate Rolf Edberg, backed by other nonaligned coun- tries, made the proposal-to the 17- nation disarmament conference. The plan calls, for a halt to nu- clear testing by Jan. 1 but set no time limit for the moratorium. Chief U.S. Delegate Arthur H. Dean replied: "I am sure that all delegations are aware of our stand against uncontrolled moratoriums and of. our most unfortunate ex- periences with them." This was a clear reference to the Soviet resumption of nuclear testing in. August 1961, after the three major atomic powers had observed a three-year self-im- posed moratorium.
