Advocate (Newspaper) - January 27, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 118th 263 TELEPHONE HI S-Utl AFTER COLLISION Guerrillas KU1 Woman Missionary Congo Force Backed by Reds LEOPOLDVILLE, The Congo (AP) Communist supported guerrillas sweeping through before midnight Saturday i i i niPnf A ft an aiitn Ho inn Kwilu province killed an Ameri- can woman missionary with an arrow and injured another, a missionary reported Sunday. The Rev. Peter Duller who returned to Leopoldville with his family after a narrow escape himself said he had re ceived word that Irene Farrell, a Baptist, had been slain by rampaging guerrillas tinder the leadership of former education minister Pierre Mulele. The Congo government has said it has uncovered documents prov- ing Mulele's band had support from the Red Chinese. The wounded American wom- nn was identified as Ruth Hege, also a Baptist. Members of the Congo inland missionary in Leo- poldville said the latest word was that Miss Hege was still in the area of the guerrilla attack and was alive. Signal For Help Buller said Miss Farrell and Miss Hege were members of the Baptist Mid Mission at Man- gangu, a village about 300 miles southeast of Leopoldville and about 60 miles southeast of the Kwilu capital of Kikwit. Buller came to Leopoldville from a mission at Mukedi, which is about 40 miles south- east of Kikwit, with his wife and two children, Jeanelte, 8, and Charles, 4. He said he saw Miss Farrell signaling desper- ately for help when he flew over the Mangungu mission last Wednesday. Miss Farrell was the first re- ported Protestant missionary to be killed in the Congo since in- dependence in 1060. Her death brings to four the number of vic- tims of guerrilla gangs led by former education minister Pi- erre with Communist Chinese support. Hacked To Death Buller told how he had helped bury three Roman Catholic priests slaughtered by Mulele's guerrillas and local villagers at Kilembe mission last Tuesday night. "It was he said with a shudder. The priests were hacked to death with machetes and their bodies mu- tilated. The Baptist missionary said Mukedi mission, a few miles north of Kilembe, had not been attacked. 1 "Mulele's men gave us per- mission to he said. "The local chief took our side.' He said all villagers either sided actively with Mulele or followed him for fear of being killed by his partisans. Latesls reports indicated Mu- lele's forces were growing rap- idly since he unleashed whole- sale attacks on mission stations last week. Refugees said he was apparently trying to wipe out all traces of law and order in the region. Buller who reached Leo- poldville from Mukedi with wife and two children, Jeanette, 8, and Charles, 4, said he saw Miss Farrell signalling desper- ately for help when he flew over the mission last Wednesday. "She and her friends were out on the he said. The mis- sion can only be reached from the air by helicopter because there is no landing strip.

Cars Again Derailed Eight cars of a southbound Missouri Pacific Lines freight (rain were derailed late Sunday morning at the same scene where a similar derailment occurred a week ago near Bioomington. Crews were working Sun- day night to clear the tracks. Nobody was injured. The freight cars were loaded with wheat. A wreck- er unit was sent down from Houston for duty at the scene. Railroad investigators were also on hand at the site. Scene of the accident is approximately three miles west of Bioomington, a short distance from the end of Black Bayou Road No. 2. Deputy Sheriff Jimmy Kubecka of Bloominglon, and Highway Patrolman Dallon (Dutch) Meyer of- fered assistance to railroad investigators at the scene. British Convinced Of RFK Success LONDON (AP) Ally. Gen.] Robert F. Kennedy convinced' the British Sunday there is a chance of the newly declared Indonesian Malaysian cease- fire leading to a peaceful solu- tion of the crisis at the confer- ence table. British leaders have been skeptical of Indonesian Presi- dent Sukarno's reliability. They have questioned whether the cease-fire would be observed and whether anything agreed upon at the proposed conference would be put into effect. Kennedy lunched with Prime Minister Sir Alec Doug- las-Home and Foreign Secre- tary R. A. B. Butler Sunday, re- liable British and American in- formanls said, the attorney gen- eral convinced them that the Leaflets Instead of Bombs Fall on Indonesia Front agreements he worked out last iveek in Asia should be given ime to work. These included a cease-fire along the 800-mile jungle front n Borneo and a conference of he foreign ministers of Indo- nesia, Malaysia and the Philip, -mes. After the luncheon session at Ihequers, official country home )f British prime ministers, the foreign Office issued a state- ment which said: "The prime minister and min- isters present heard Mr. Ken- ledy's impressions of his visit ;o various countries in South- east Asia. They welcome the prospect that fighting is to stop and that a conference is to be icld, and they hope that the conference will lead to a last- uig peace in the area." Diplomatic sources said the JAKARTA, Indonesia Indonesian planes dropped thou- sands of leaflets ordering a cease-fire along the jungle bor- der with Malaysia on Sunday amid hopeful signs the South- east Asian crisis may be easing. The leaflets ordered into ef- fect the Borneo border truce Ruby Remaining In Dallas Jail DALLAS (AP) Dallas Coun- ty Sheriff Bill Decker said Sun- day he has received no orders to 'transfer Jack Ruby to any other city. Ruby, a night club operator charged with murder in the death of Lee Harvey Oswald, has been ordered to undergo psychaiatric examination by Dist. Judge .Joe B. Brown. However, three Dallas hospit- als have refused to allow their facilities to be used for the ex- amination and there has been speculation that the tests would be given at Galveston or some oilier city. Two officials of (he University of Texas medical branch at Gal- veston said Saturday they knew of no plans to bring Ruby to that city. that Atty. Gen. Robert F. Ken- nedy worked out last week in talks here with President Su- karno and in Kuala Lumpur with Malaysian Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman. Sukarno, meanwhile, put aside his "crush Malaysia" slogans, temporarily at least, and adopt- ed a moderate tone that could facilitate Kennedy's current task in the British that Sukarno will live up to the cease-fire and talk things over with Malaysia and the Philippines. HOLDING HIS OWN Zoo Keeper Battling Bite of Deadly Addei SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) Jerry De Bary, 37-year- old director of the zoo, was bitten by an African puff adder, one of the world's most deadly snakes, Saturday night. He was described as holding his own but in critical condition Sunday. De Barry was treated with an- tivenin flown by a Navy jet fighter from San Diego. A doctor said this is the only specific an- (idotc for the snake bite poison. He said the snake venom causes paralysis and blood dis- orders. Debary, director of the Hogel Zoological Gardens, was de- scribed as conscious, but in great pain. Doctors said as far as they can determine there is only one other person in the United States known to have survived a bite by an African puff adder. HP, is Marlin Perkins, who was bitten at the SI. Louis Zoo in 1328. Parkins, who has had "Zoo Parade" programs on TV in Chicago and St, Louli, wu ianged in the left index finger when he was curator of reptiles at the St. Louis Zoo. Perkins served later as zoo director in Chicago. He returned to St. Louis as director of the zoo there in 1962. Within 40 minutes after being Bitten by the gaboon viper, which is in the same species as the puff adder, Perkins was so close to death that he told Dr. Forrest Staley, the attending physician, that it was all over. But Perkins survived and left the hospital three months later. Lamar Farnsworth, assistant director of the St. Louis zoo, said DC Barry was working alone Saturday night cleaning the snake cages in preparation for expected Sunday crowds. Just as he opened the front glass door of the adder's cage and felt dizzy and fell forward. He raised his arm to keep from falling into the cage, and the (ive-foot-long snake struck him in the right forearm. De Barry closed the cage door, The Indonesian leader prom- ised to observe the cease-fire as long as there is no firing from Malaysia, the new Common- wealth federation he has often denounced as an extension of British colonialism and vowed to smash. Sukarno also predicted the talks in Bangkok, Thailand, early next month between the foreign ministers of Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines would lead to a summit confer- ence of leaders of the three na- tions. Philippine President Diosdado Macapagal's differences with Malaysia are based on a claim to Sabsh, the Borneo state which with Sarawak, Singa- pore and Malaya combined to ;reate the Malaysian federation last September. Since then Indonesia has stepped up its guerrilla warfare and subversive infiltration along the heavily jungled Borneo bor- ders with Malaysia. Britain has airlifted in more than sol- diers to help her Commonwealth partner patrol the 800-mile fron- tier Such Brilsh aid and influence is Sukarno's main complaint, and he reiterated Sunday that Indonesia still opposes Malaysia (See LEAFLETS, Page 10) Woman Senator To Reveal Plans WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. Margaret Chase Smith, who will announce Monday wheth- er she will enter any ol the Republican presidential pri- maries, said Sunday she thinks a woman could win the nomina- tion.

They also hope that the cease- fire which Kennedy arranges will actually work and the the projected conference will open :he way for peace and stability The British have wonderec whether Kennedy has misreac Sukarno's aims and whether the truce arrangements would hole up. Some British troops low are deployed as part of the orce defending Malaysia's fron- tier with Indonesia in Borneo. The Federation of Malaysia came into being last Septem- ber. It includes 10 million peo- ple and is composed of Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak and Nortr Borneo. The British regard this new country, stretching in a milearc along the bottom edge the South China Sea, as a bulwark against Chinese Com munist expansion. So does thi United States, American official: have said. The Indonesians complain that Malaysia is a thinly dis guised device to keep British colonial influence alive in South east charge the govern- ment denies. Mighty Saturn I olTBlasts Off Today v In 1st Key Test Minister Masayo- .usk said the United States was deeply concerned over the French decision and said it amounted to a reward to Peking for its militancy. Rusk and Ohira met on the eve of the opening of the third J.S.-Japan economic confer- ence. They agreed to remain in close consultation on French- Red Chinese developments. Steps Ruled Out But it was apparent neither >elieyed they could persuade 'resident Charles de Gaulle of rrance to change his course at this late date and that it would erve no purpose to take re tali a- ory steps against the French. Japan is understood 'to have legun explaining its position to ither nations, as well as its anxiety over the future of Na- ionalist China, particularly in he United Nations. This fol- owed similar initiatives under- aken in Washington. Neither Japan nor the United Itatcs, American sources said, lave received any sign from Nationalist China that it intends o follow Washington's advice to sit tight for the moment and re- "rain from an open break with Paris once recognition is an- nounced early this week. Friendly Persuasion It appeared evident that nei- her country had yet arrived at Jie specifics of what, if any- thing, could be done to keep oth- er countries from following France's lead. For the time be- ing, friendly persuasion without undue pressure appeared to be the only avenue open to them. The United States is said to believe that there will not be a general stampede to recognize the Peking regime even among France's former colonies in Africa. De Gaulle, himself, is represented as not likely to wel coma the prospect of the stepped-up Chinese influence in those countries which would re- Trade Fears U.S. position on trade suit. Japan's fears, expressed pri- vately at official levels, are greater, however. Prime Minis ter Hayato Ikeda, who will meet Rusk Tuesday, is under heavy pressure from the opposition leftists and from business inter- ests to re-examine Japanese pol- icy which now is one of recog- nizing Taipei and doing limited private business _with Peking. The with the China mainland is that little can he said to discourage the Japanese as long as other American allies such as Britain and West Germany are cultivat- ing this area. The main U.S concern is that Japanese trade does nothing to build up China's industrial and military poten lial and military potential or through generous credit terms take on the complexion of aic rather than trade. De Gaulle's bold step to re orient France in Asia toward: (Sec U.S., Page 10) Today's Chuckle Before some skiers learn to slnnd, they are unable to sit down.
