of a special kind Their Africans were better paid better cared for better housed than any in Africa There were hospitals and schools and churches Africans were taught trades and for example drove locomo tives which in South Africa and Rhodesia is still an exclusive privilege but there was only a handful of black gradu ates of priests and lawyers no doctors no engineers no offi cers and above all no trained administrators and experienced politicians For this last the Belgians have paid a full price THE CONGO was handed its freedom more quickly more un expectedly and with less prepar ation than was any other colony in history And now it is becoming clear that it is not nationalismrun wild that is the chief danger but something that the modern world has never seen rever sion to barbarism a reversion to a state worse than that which the whites found when they first came here a reversion to an Resets meeting in Chicago on farming By RAYMOND LAHR CHICAGO UPI Vice President Richard M Nixon and his running mate pledged an allout effort Friday to lead the Republican party to victory in the November presidential elec tion Well campaign until our throats are raw Nixon told members of the Republican National Committee But you in the precincts will win it Nixon and GOP vice presidential nominee Henry Cabot Lodge appealed for the support party leaders in what Nixon said will be the closest elec tion of this century in America Nixon will visit Hawaii brief ly next week it was stated Fri day from highly reliable sources unthinking tribalism that is no longer even constrained by the primitive but effective conven tions of precolonial Africa The idea of a united Congo even of united provincial units is now really held only by a few new men at the top and by parts of the urban crowds that have been able to hear of new ideas again and again The idea that they are at war with Belgium is f a r more widely accepted though few could say why pre THE HAWAII visit has been under consideration by Nixon quarters for several days but a final firm decision to make the trip was reached only early Fri day Nixon was prepared to for mally announce his travel plans at a news conference It is expected the vice presi dent will leave Chicago this weekend After leaving Wash ington D C he plans to stop briefly at Reno Nev and then go on to his home at Whittier Calif before his Hawaii trip He will be back in Washington before the beginning of the con gressional session Aug 8 THE VICE PRESIDENT orig inally had planned to remain here until Tuesday However he moved up an allday conference with farm leaders from Monday to Saturday On Monday he will confer at length in Washington withhis running mate Henry Cabot Lodge and begin coordinating a schedule for the fall cam paign He will remain in Washington most of the time during the con gressional session but will make brief campaign forays on weekends Plans for these will be announced later he said Nixon said exact times for

the Atlas booster The onetone capsule and the Atlas rocket assembly appar ently sank in the Atlantic 4 to 12 miles off Cape Canaveral The Atlas with the capsule perched in its nose blasted off from this missile test center am in a driving wind and rain storm and was immediately followed by low hanging clouds which obscured the apparent blowup from Cape observers Lad meets Nixon hfr for U cisely PREMIER Patrice Lumumba may insist that despite his bitter criticisms he is a friend of Bel gium The mob can only see Belgian troops on their land Belgian wealth Belgian privil ege Their attacks on the Bel gians their drunken atrocities their simple desire to be rich expressed in looting and rob bing all these are as automatic as a man throwing up his arm to ward off a blow It is the sort of disease that only time and a sense of unity and purpose could cure But the other disease is more dangerous FREEDOM HAS brought li THE FARM meeting will bring the GOP nominee together lowa pfrtlv cloudy with scat with Senate and House mem bers from all farm areas any Republican governors who wish to attend and all convention del cense to reassert historical claims and hatreds Freedom in Leopoldville was proceeded by and hurried on by intertribal of peculiarly vicious fighting sort It is only in part a struggle for political power and it still con tinues and smoulders all over the Congo New industrial towns where Africans live become inevitably a mixture of tribes But with freedom in many places original tribal owners of lands began to reassert their historical rights and to hunt down strangers Far more Africans than Belgians have had to move and suffer THE NEXT administration ar rangements made by white pro vincial commissioners whereby borders and populations were moved were never accepted and were not forgotten Thousands of the Baluba tribe for example are on the move even n o w in Kasai Province seeking security and new homes because their new conationals would rather have them dead than next door And politicians in power and the provincial presidents and of the opposition owe their political support n o t to their ideas and eloquence but to tribal loyalties Real coalition and unity and feeling for a na tion as a whole is almost impos sible in such circumstances egates who are farmers Nixon said the Reno stop will be an airport reception staged as a
