But the U.S. government fears Tshombe may be seeking primari- ly to stall off the threat of eco- nomic sanctions against his min- eral-rich province. They indicate that real progress, toward a Congo settlement must be made in a few if stronger pressures are not to be imposed. Russia'Moves? One reason for growing U.S, concern is the: belief 'that the Sp- viet Union will make a new bit to establish a pwer position in the Central African nation unless Congo government of Premier Cyrille Adoula has its politica position by success of the unity drive. Conditionally, Tshombe pro- posed in a letter to the United Nations last Wednesday that for- eign exchange earnings of the Union Miniere du Haut Katanga, tig mining corporation, be .turnec over to the Adoula government rather than Tshombe's Katanga regime. Getting the Union Miniere for- eign exchange payments into the hands of the central government has been a major objective ol U.N. Secretary-General U Thaal under a unity plan which Thanl put forth last August. Tshombe's move appears to be a concession under the Thant plan but Wash- ington officials see. a possibility that Tshombe may stall negotia- tions which are'still necessary'to details.of-the-proposal. Money Among other things', Tshombe and Adoula will have 'to agree on the proportion of the million of foreign exchange which the central government would pass on to Katanga. Also involved is the question of the division of the minimi annual-Union Miniere tax payment which has recently gone to Katanga but under a new ar- rangement would be divided be- tween Katanga and: the centra] government.. Other issues which will have to be settled before Katanga is con- sidered to be a part of a pro- posed new Congo federation, in- clude integration of the armec forces of the province into the forces of the central government. Big Income Union Miniere has a foreign ex- change income of about mil- lion a year. Of that total about 40 per cent or million stays in Belgium where the company pro- cesses Katanga copper and co- balt.-The net: foreign exchange turned over to the Congo there- fore would be about -million A year. Presidential .adviser Chester Bowles said in a speech in New York" on Friday night that there is a threat of civil -war in the Congo unless the unification issue is resolved fairly soon. Administration authorities here declined Saturday to set any pre- cise.deadline for further action by Tshombe..But they did say im- portant steps toward unification must.be taken in a matter of Two Crashes Mar Friday Two accidents were recorded Friday afternoon on Ada streets. Charlie Carter, Wynnewood, was going East on Main 'Street. He was struck by a car driven by .Elvia E. Wilmeth, 40, driving louth on Stockton.
