The government announced "more than dead, in- jured and homeless. But unofficial" sources 'put the death toll as high as The -U.S. Embassy announced that no Americans were among the dead or injured. The quake lasted only one minute Saturday night with the worst devastation over a square-mile area centering around Takistan, 100 miles north- west of Tehran and about 20 miles southwest of the major rail city of Kazvin. The Iranian Red Cross said the quake killed 3.000 of the in- habitants of Dan-Isfahan near Takistan. The village, set on a foothill of an mountain, was left a mass of mud and debris. Sur- vivors ran screaming for help as a rescue plane landed on the fringe of the village. Of the 322 houses in the village, only one mosque and one brick building still stand. A few half-destroyed walls stand as.ghostly remnants of the trag- edy. Prime Minister Assadullah Alam, touring the disaster area said: "Unfortunately the tragedy is bigger and greater than at first reported." An Iranian newsman telephoned from Saveh, 80 miles west of Teh- ran, that seven villages had been wiped -out in .that area with a death toll of 355. The injured crowded hospitals and schools in Kara] and Kazvin, on the edge of the disaster area. One train brought 108 injured to Tehran Sunday night. A critical water shortage was reported in the area. Many wells and underground water systems were destroyed or damaged by the shock. The quake sent shock waves as far as Tehran, and people fled into the capital's streets. Prime Minister Assadullah prepared to tour the disaster area today. He called on Iranians to open then- homes to the homeless and injured. The League of Red Cross So- cieties in Geneva offered to launch an international relief pro- gram for the quake, victims. The Geneva .organization cabled, the Iranian Red Cross for' a- list of most urgently needed -materials. The quake occurred the same day the Soviet Union detonated pounds-of explosives, in its southern republic of Georgia, but leading American seismologists said there ;was "definitely no con- nection" between, the two. Moscow radio announced the blast had 'been set off in a spe- cially dug. well- -to study, the earth's crust. The -Rev. J. Joseph Lynch; director of Fordham Uni- versity's Seismoiogical Institute in New York, said the Russian blast was a "perfectly .routine experi- ment." Iran has been hit'-.by more than 200 quakes in the-past 50 years. The last major one in December 1957 killed persons in ern Iran. Cease Fire Ends Clash In Algeria ALGIERS, (AP) A cease-fire prevailed between the regular Al gerian army and rebellious guer- rilla forces south of Algiers today. In the capital more than 10 persons were reported killed or in a two-hour battle Sun- day night between guerrilla troops and supporters of Deputy Premier Ahmed Ben Bella. The gun and grenade clash in the Algiers casbah was.the worst fighting so .far between the rebel- lious guerrillas of Wilaya (zone) No. 4 and Ben Bella's supporters. Reports' said a "guerrilla .patrol was ambushed in the narrow twisting streets of the quarter by a force headed by Yacef Saadi, leader of a terrorist group in the capital during the war for inde- pendence. Guerrilla troops poured into the casbah, seeking to root out the resistance fighters, and machine- gun fire rattled through the crowded area. There was no indi- cation of how many of the casual- ties were dead or how many be- longed to which side. The Wilaya 4 command accused French troops stationed near the casbah of participating In the fir- ing. French military authorities denied the charge. The regular army's drive on Al- giers to put Ben Bella in control of the capital seemed to have come to a halt 24 hours after the troops entered Wilaya 4 territory on a broad front south and west of Algiers. The army's closest approach to Algiers was at Boghari, a Sahara fringe outpost 75 miles south of the capital. Six persons were reported in- jured on each side at Boghari aft- er brief exchanges of gunfire Sat- urday and early Sunday. Then thousands of civilians poured into the streets demanding an end to the fratricidal fightings, and the WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. An Oklahoma ed- itor challenged today what he called "the comfortable dogma that most Negroes are not inter- ested in integration." This idea, said Jenkin Lloyd Jones, editor of the Tulsa Tribune 'is abroad in the' South but, unfortunately, most Negroes, do want- integration.

The south is under no local commanders cease-fire. arranged a Clashes. were reported at sev- eral other places inside Wilaya 4 territory, but all fighting ceased Sunday when Ben Bella ordered a cease-fire from his operational headquarters at Tiaret, 200 miles southwest of, Algiers. At Boghari, several hundred regular troops remained deployed along a sandy ridge overlooking the town. Their heavy machine guns and artillery pointed toward the guerrilla defenders who were dug in on another small ridge about 300 yards away. There is widespread popular disgust with the power struggle that is keeping the two-month old nation in turmoil. Crowds demon- stated for peace repeatedly in Al- giers and throughout the sur- rounding area. The country's pre- mier in name only, Ben Youssef Ben Khedda, who lost a .power struggle with Ben Bella last month, called on all rival leaders to meet immediately in the capi- tal to head off the threatened civil war.

The northern cit- ies have presented dramatic ex- amples of what happens, and the flight to the suburbs 'is ample proof of the deviation, "But strict .segregation accord- ing to race without regard to abil- ity, ambition and sincerity is hard to defend.
