Twelve persons were injured, but no deaths were reported from the thundering blasts. Police headquarters said 13 men were arrested either fleeing the scenes of the blasts or pre- paring to set off new charges. They formed three of what po- lice estimated were a score of teams that carried out the at- tacks. Most of the blasts were aimed against Moslem stories or parked automobiles belonging to Mos- lems. Police said no. public build- ings were damaged. Thousands of Europeans in night clothes crowded to their windows and onto balconies, lis- tening to the blasts and counting them. Cheers went up in the Bab- El-Oued section with every ex- plosion. "It was a real one European woman said beaming, European settlers close to the right-wing underground said the operation was part of a Secret Army plan to keep the Moslems in check. The explosions ended at day break with the same suddenness they began in an expertly timed, massive show of strength by the European terrorists. By noon life in Algiers ap- peared normal again except for tense troops patrolling the city. The wave of plastic explosions came on the heels of a govern- ment communique which said the authorities were scoring impor- tant progress in their fight against the Secret Army. The first blasts went off at a.m. in the heart of the capital and then spread with rapid-fire precision to all sections of the city. Rows of shop windows were shattered, covering several streets with- glass and debris. Many stores were set on fire. The raiders steered clear of heavily guarded government buildings. Troops and police patrolled downtown Algiers in a night- marish atmosphere. Bursts of machine-gun fire were heard. The bombing was the first ma- jor outbreak by the underground army to hit Algiers in two monthn. The secret army showed in- creasing boldness and desperation with the final peace accord be- tween the Algerian Moslem na- tionalists and French President Charles de Gaulle coming closer to pave the way for Algeria's in- dependence.

The Georgia senator declined to give any personal evaluation of McCone's report, which was an account of the lengthy quizzing of Powers since his return to the United States. Russell did say McCone would repeat the briefing before the full Senate Armed Services Commit- tee Tuesday morning. The two groups which heard to- day's report were subcommittees of the Armed Services and Ap- propriations committees. The closed briefing this morn- ing lasted an hour and a half.

Echo Satellite Comes Back Into U. S. View WASHINGTON Echo balloon satellite comes into day- break view in the Northern Hemisphere again this week, but it may be a -bit harder' to find than on earlier circuits of this part of the world. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said it is possible that the sphere, originally 100 feet in diameter, may have shrunk to half or even to one- fourth its original size. Its shape, once symmetrical, also may have become so dis- :orted as to -give the impression that after more than a year and a half in orbit it is only 25 to 50 :eet in diameter. Even a NASA spokesman said, the aluminum-coated plastic spaceball may remain in orbit for another 12 to 18 months. When it was launched in folded ;orm Aug. :2, 1960, ejected from ts container and inflated high above the earth, there were some guesses Echo might last only a, week or two. Few believed the tissue-thin craft could retain its! shape sufficiently to remain in orbit longer than a year. Its long life indicates there, are considerably fewer micrometeor- ites at Echo's orbiting altitudes than had been believed. The satellite also shed light on the ability, of fragile structures to retain shape and form in space in spite of great temperature vari- ations. also has provided new infor- mation on the amount of atmos- Oklahoma City Man Dies In Tishomingo Crash (Special) Oklahoma City man was killed east. of here Saturday night in a car-truck collision.
