Missionaries in Africa reaching turning point By GEORGE W CORNELL Associated Press Writer Christian missionaries who for 100 years have heard the call of the Congo now are out or get ting out Whether theyll ever go back again on the same basis seemed doubtful Their cause would continue in Congolese hands but there were signs of the end of an era Its certainly a turn ing point said the Kev Theodore L Tucker a veteran African missionary and now head of the Africa Committee of the Divi sion of Foreign Missions of the National Council of Churches JUST WHAT will happen eventually remains to be seen But obviously there will be con siderable differences after this tremendous mass exodus Most of the 1200 American missionaries in the Congo have quit the tumultridden region including many who until this week thought they could stick it out We dont know how soon or under what conditions mission aries can return said Dr Dana M Albaugh overseas di rector for the American Baptist Foreign Mission Societies We anticipate going back b u t it probably wont be on the same footing With stations outside the Con gos borders overcrowded with refugees he said most of the missionaries will probably come

Nelson Rockefeller and the vice pres idential nomination are the only real question marks here on the eve of the national Republican convention Its assumed that Richard Nixon will more or less have a arte blanche in this matter as Dwight D Eisenhower had eight years ago when Nixon came into the picture and as John Ken nedy did earlier this month when he pulled Lyndon Johnson out of the bag as his running mate But that isnt to say that iowans who are straggling in a day or two in advance of the opening gavel Monday dont have an interest and some ideas on the subject Some of them are remembering Sen Bourke Hickenloopers mention of three vice presidential possibilities at the Iowa sena orial nominating convention Wednesday in Des Moines The nameof Thruston Morton drew a ripple of applause he
