The trouble began when an East German policeman lobbed a tear- gas grenade at tourists in the West sector who ventured close for a look at the wall the Com- munists built across the divided old German capital. Nobody was hurt, though both East German and French ar- mored cars rushed to the scene. About 30 shots were fired, and half a dozen tear-gas grenades exchanged.

Three Points He told, his listeners of three things they could do as a united group: 1. "Take away the hunger of the world." Stahl said 75 per cent of the people of the earth are going hungry daily. Some 35 million persons died of starvation last year alone, he said. 2. "They should build the ed- ucation in Ihese different coun tries."

Raul Pog- gi in the heart of the capital. The crisis, the nearest Argen- tina has come to serious blood- letting since dictator Juan D. Pe- ron was routed seven years ago, burgeoned when cavalry Gen. En- rique Rauch launched unexpected- ly an insurrection against the army high command Friday night from Campo fie Mayo, Argentina's most important military camp, 30 miles outside the capital. The insurrection snowballed and surprised Poggi, key leader in de- posing and imprisoning President Arturo Frohdizi on March 29. GUI- do is Frondizi's military-picked uccessor. All morning it seemed blood would be spilled on the issue of vhether Peronists, who won in the March 18 elections, would be larred from office by Guido's dic- atorial decree, as the high com- mand demanded, or by legal proc- esses sanctioned by Congress, as he insurgents insisted. The upshot was a dramatic sum- mit conference of Argentina's gen- erals and admirals behind the leavily guarded gates of Guido's iuburban residence. Rauch, 48, commander of the 'avalry corps at Camp de Mayo, out smiling and declared limself satisfied with a truce for- mula proposed by Guido himself. Poggi sourly waved to newsmen i and refused to talk. As events unfolded it seemed clear Guido had triumphed. The main development suggest- ing this was, when Guido's office announced the appointment of Gen. Juan Bautista Loza, compar- atively unknown politically, as the new army secretary with a free hand to name his own army com- mander in chief. This meant Poggi was through, as well as Gen. Marino Bartolome Carrera, army secretary, who re- signed Friday night. The showdown came quickly aft- er Rauch, solidly based with more than soldiers and 150 Sher- man tanks at his command at Campo de Mayo, ordered an ar- mored column to advance on Bue- hind s barricade of buses and cars around the dominating War Ministry building facing the Plaza de Mayo and pink-walled Govern- ment House in the heart of the city. nos Aires. Ex-General Is Charged In Paris PARIS Raoul Salan, imprisoned chief of the European Secret Army, was formally ac- cused Saturday of attacking tna authority of the state in his cam- paign to keep Algeria French. Conviction on the charge carries the death penalty. The charge was read to Salan in the stock ex-general's prison cell. Prison officials said Salan, still wearing his black moustache and black-dyed hair, appeared re- axed as examining Magistrate luy Courcol read the complaint. Under French law. a prisoner must be formally charged within 48 hours of arrest. Earlier, Salan had been pictured as resigned, tired, seemingly with- out hope, as he told police inter- rogators his arrest was inevitable "everything was collapsing around us." That was the way former Gen. Raoul tired, and seemingly without hope de- scribed his position to police in- terrogators at Sante Prison Sat- urday. Bemedaled Salan, former su- preme French military command- er in Algeria, was arrested Fri- day in Algiers. For lhe past year he had been in underground re- volt against the Algerian policies of President Charles de Gaulle. Reaction to his capture caused new bloodshed in Algeria. A year ago Sunday Salan and three olher generals touched off a short-lived putsch, seizing pow- er in A'giers. When his insurrec- tion collapsed under the weight of De Gaulle's preslige. Salan and Gen. Edmond Jouhaud went into hiding. They formed the under- ground Secret Army Organization (DAS' which rallied European settlers for a last-dilch terrorist campaign against Algerian inde- pendence.
