JUNE 29. 1964 1M4 Grenade Attack Brings LBJVows Full Quest Turmoil Back to Congo For Peace 'Must Take' Some Risks LKOPOLDVILLE, Congo (AP) With the last U.N. peace force troops packed to leave by rebellion, political turmoil and primi- tive tribal savagery boiled in the Congo on Sunday, A grenade atack shattered a wedding party attended by high Congolese officaLs in Leopoldville on Saturday night. Other attacks were aimed at voters. in a na- tional constitutional referen- dum. In the eastern provinces, Communist backed .rebels waged war and in some regions, army officers re- ported, tribes reverted to cannibalism. In Control A Communist supported rebel chieftain was reported in control of the North Ka- tanga Province capital of Albertville on the Western shore of Lake Tanganyika. Moise Tshombe was back in Leopoldville appealing for unity of all Congolese to end what he called "fratricidal strife." Tshombe, former leader of secessionist Katanga Prov- ince, returned Friday. An- other returnee was Albert Kalonji, the so-called god- emperor of the Baluba tribesmen in diamond-rich South Kasai. With Return Ironically, the departure of the last of the United Na- tions force that put down Tshombe's Katanga regime 18 months ago virtually coin- cides with his return to the Congo. A Congo army mutiny only seven days after indepen- dence in 1960 brought the U.N. force into being. At peak it numbered men from 12 nations. In the year Tshombe has been in exile, the U.N. force has been withdrawing. The final units scheduled to'go out are Nigerian troops and an equal number of Ethiopian troops. The U.N. force cannot stay on after June 30 because the U.N, General Assembly has not voted any funds for its opera- tion beyond that date. No Request There has been no request from (lie Congo that they stay on, aven though a high U.N. officer said recently, "These are lhe darkest days since 1960." The terrorists who at- tacked the wedding party and voting stations were be- lieved to have come from Brazzaville, across the Con- go River from here, where a committee of extremist exiles is reported plotting to overthrow the government of Premier Cyrille Adoula. The terrorists lobbed three grenades but only one ex- (See ATTACK, Page 6) Estes Firm Cheering Poles Established c FI surround RFK m. opening at Rio Loan, a pawn- shop owned by Paul Slone just a Set operations Monday to several lakes in the terrain around Phil- Cover 4M Yards In 12-foot, flat-bottomed skiffs, the search parties began comb- ing about 400 yards of the 60- yard-wide river near Yates crossing.
