OHAN, Algeria: Edmund'Jouhaud, one of the most wanted leaders of the Eu- ropean Secret Army, was cap- lured and sped to a French prison today. The secret army then ral- lied French settlers In Algiers for a defiant march that was drowned in blood. For about an hour, fighting raged in downtown Algiers be- fore the European crowds wore dispersed, A government spokes- man said 15 were killed and 130 wounded. Melting away into side streets, Ihe crowds shouted, "Mur- at French soldiers. A foi-mer chief of siaff of the French air force, Jouhaud and his entire staff were captured Sun- day in a 10-hour bailie between the secret army and French forces in Ihis second largesl city of Algeria. The secret army tried to storm a barracks and rescue Jouhaud, its commander in western Al- geria, but was repulsed. Then as an uneasy calm settled over Oran, the secret army struck in Algiers. It called on Europeans of Algiers lo march on Bab el Oiied, its stronghold in a suburb that has been encircled for three days by French troops. Answering the clandestine call, hundreds of Europeans assembled in Ihe heart of Algiers only lo be met by troops and riot police de ployed behind harriers. Gun fire rang through the cily, grenades exploded, armored cars nimblcd through the streets and helicopters flew patrol. At a street corner, where sev- eral settlers' bodies lay in pools of blood, crowds of European set- tlers gathered and shouted, "Mur- derers, at the soldiers.

While Ihe fighting was in prog ress, Iwo secret army men en- tered the Aletti Hotel in downtown Algiers and told correspondents the fight to block Algerian hide pendcnce and keep Algeria French will go on. As one method, they said, a vast workers group will be organized lo exert economic pressure and prevent application of Ihe cease- fire agreement between France and the Algerian nationalist reb- els. The cease-fire is a prelimin- ary lo a vote of independence. Oran remained an armed camp as the news circulated that Jou- haud, who had eluded capture since he quit the military service and slipped back to Algeria in I960, had been taken at last. Jouhaud and four others, includ- ing a woman, were flown to Paris today and locked up in Same Prison. Jouhaud, along with ex-Gen.

Kennedy outlined his new pro- gram in a letter fo the Public Works Committee as the committee opened hearings on another administration public works standby program for use in future rcces- :ions. The President asked for prompt enactment of both an immediate and a standby program to provide jobs. The new program had been strongly urged by labor union lenders at a While House meeting with Kennedy two weeks aso. The President said that, despite steady economic improvement during the past year, there arc nearly 1.000 cities, smaller cities, and rum! areas that are experiencing "serious problems of prolonged large-scale unemployment and economic distress." Last week Kennedy reportediv endorsed a proposal bv Son Joseph S. Clark Jr., D-Pa., and Rep: John A. Blalnik, D-Mimi. that up lo million be mado available for public works grants this year if the April unemploy ment figures don't show a dra matic drop.

Treatment Plant Said Most Successful Method By CLYDE FOSTER Reporlcr-N'cns Staff Writer Abilene volcrs will decide April 3 on whether lo install secondary treatment facilities for the Abilene sewage disposal plant. The secondary Irenlmenl faci- lities, at a cost of have been recommended by the Fort Worth engineering firm of Frcese, Nichols and Endress and the pro- posal is being submitted to the voters in a bond issue for that amount. The proposed plant, would meet the of city through at least JD69, the engineering firm estimated.

Activated sludge has as its prime advantage the production of "The highest quality of effluent known to modern day trcalnienl which under legal ficially listed as terms is of- a navigable Mrcam. The report stales lhat a savings of could be mnde if authority can be obtained to re- lease thie effluent into Clenrwatcr Creek, located nearer the site of tho proposed plant, Most Successful engineering firm's report lernu the proposed secondary Irealmcnt plant "the most success- ful method o? sewage, disposal from the standpoint of minimum odors, Insects And other nuisances AS A result of DID facilities and In terms of the quality of Ihe ef- fluent produced." Most popular lypcs of secondary Ircatment plants arc the two- stage high-rale trickling filter method and an activated sludge process. The trickling filter system is generally considered superior in instances; where excessively the report goes on. It is an activated sludge treat- ment plant, with a capacily of 10 million gallons of sewage per day, which is proposed to be construct- ed for the city of Abilene under the bond issue. The engineering firm's report slated that the activated sludge Maj. Gen. Pedro Arambuni, champion of democratic govern- ment and the country's military ruler after the ouster of dictator tuan Peron, enlisted the support of much of the army high com- nand in stalling off a showdown after the navy publicly colled on Frondizi to resign. Arambuni, hero of the revolt lhat overthrew Peron in 1955, pleaded for more time lo work out a pence after warning the 21 million Argentines in a radio television broadcast "the republic s in danger" and "many fear al s lost." Aramburu called for without taking Frondizi's and promised to make a midnight report tonight lo the nation on lis peace-making efforts. Frondizi, 51, has vowed he will; never quit but Aramburu empha- sized lhat the armed forces could get rid of (he president at will.
