THE EVENING STAB, Washington, D. C.
Fau re's Morocco Plan
Hits Snag on Council
PARIS. Sept. 16 (AP). —A last
minute hitch developed today to
plague Premier Edgar Faure’s
program for settling the crisis
in Morocco.
French officials and National*
Ist leaders who have all agreed
to replace the present Sultan.
Mohammed Ben Moulay Arafa.
with a three-man regency coun
cil. were at odds again over the
composition of this “council of
the throne.” Only 24 hours pre
viously, this problem had been
considered settled.
The premier and his minister
for Tunisian and Moroccan af
fairs, Pierre July, scheduled
meetings with Si Bekkai, inde
pendent Nationalist and with
spokesmen for the Democratic
Independence Party (PDI) and
the Istiqlal, the largest Nation
alist group, in an effort to solve
this issue.

low tables and there were even
place cards.
4,600 Greet De Latour
Visiting JoudnalUts were apt to 1
find themselves sandwiched’
between a French Army officer
and some junior tribal official.
Outside the tent, some 4,000
people were drawn up in formal
array awaiting the general’s ar
rival. Grouped in a hollow
square were several hundred un
derchiefs and veterans of the
Trench Colonial Army, all wear
ing their medals. At the en
trance to the area waited a
squadron of Berber horsemen
mounted on wonderful-looking
Arab horses, holding their ancient
muzzle-loading rifles and looking
fierce enough to satisfy the most
demanding photographer.
Dancing girls resplendent in
their traditional costumes and
Jewelry waited with the tradi
tional Arab offering of dates and
milk. Drums beat out a curious
rhythmic tattoo, flutes wailed
and small shaven-headed chil
dren fled from the approach of{
Paratroopers on Hand
It was not, to be sure, entirely j
a Berber show. A company of
Trench North African para- 1
troopers armed with machine
pistols were drawn up at at
tention before the tent. And to
some reporters it seemed as if;
most of the preparatory orders:
'were delivered by local French
Army officers.
On the general’s arrival, wait
ing horsemen yelled loudly and
fired their guns. Women set up
an ear-piercing cheer which
sounds very much like the tra
ditional version of the American
Indian war cry. In fact, on less
ceremonial occasions it is a war
cry. The last time most listeners
had heard the sound was under
circumstances considerably less
congenial to Europeans.
There Is no question, however,i
that many of the members of the
Ait Seghrouchen tribe were
happy to see Gen. de Latour
again. His little walk around'he
hollow square, shaking hands,!
speaking in Arabic and greeting
Os friends, had a genuine warmth.
Older men watched his prog
ress with touching anticipation.
When he stopped in front of
them, they came to a ragged and
unpracticed salute before grasp
ing his hand. Several bent and
kissed his fingers as he moved
Nor was there the slightest.

peptic correspondents started
trying to find a moral. Some re
called what happened less than
a month ago at a town eg lied
Oued Zem, where a different
tr ibe of Berbers went on a ram-'

that El Mers was a long way

veteran army officers have a
curious failing to try to recap
ture the good old days and the
good old Rabat of their youth.
To Gen. de Latour. it hrd been
a heartwarming and happy ex

reflections may have crossed his

realities that face him there.

Ford Plea Here
For United Fund
Continued From First Page
perity, would be* positive proof
{of the need for united giving.”
! Mr. Ford related that Detroit
organized the United Fund after
1948, when the Community Chest
fell short of its goal by $300,000.
What happened, he said, was
that numerous individual drives
beat each other to death.
“Our civle leaders were over
whelmed by demands upon their
time,” he said. “Detroit business
firms were harassed by costly
and time-consuming drives. Em
ployes became increasingly irri
tated at the* endless demands
upon their generosity. Not
knowing when or how often you
might feel the bite, it was only
human to respond cautiously and
conservatively to these many
Duplication of Effort
Mr. Ford said a group of busi
nessmen who were fed up with <
the situation resolved to elimi
nate. once and for all. the
confusion, annoyance and dupli
cation of effort They estab
lished a strong, genuine federa
tion of appeals. >
The plan, of course, met with
opposition and some criticism.
But the success of a “guinea
pig campaign.” confined to a
relatively small group of indi
viduals and organisations, con
vinced the skeptics.
Mr. Ford said in 1946 the
agencies now participating in
the United Foundation raised
$7.2 million in separate cam
paigns. Last fall, the UF raised
sl4 million.
Both local and national agen
cies now receive more money
than they received under sep
arate drives.
“Important as the money side
of it was. united giving brought
us many more benefits," Mr.
Ford told the luncheon group.
“It saved industry many thou
sands of dollars in waste, time
and effort. It eliminated the ir
ritation of multiple drives. It
permitted a much more efficient
use of donations.”
700,0 N More Donors
He pointed out that each agen
cy, in competing with others for
funds, used to spend up to $5
per cent of its total income Just
for campaign expenses. That
waste was eliminated by the
combined drive. Today 95 cents
out of the contributor's dollar
goes directly into the health and
welfare needs of the commu
Mr. Ford said another remark
able development was the great
broadening in the base of partic
ipation. The number of con
tributors in Detroit increased
from 600,000 in 1948 to 1,300,000
in 1954.
One of the more startling and
unexpected consequences of
united giving. Mr. Ford said, was
the “quickening of civic spirit
and enthusiasm which was to
have effects far beyond any
thing we had imagined.”
He said be is convinced that
much credit for the moderation
and restraint of Detroit indus
trial relations in recent years is
due to harmonizing influences
of the United Fund.
Three Government agencies
already have gone over the top
in the 1955 Community Chest
drive in Washington for $4
million. The Government units
have set a goal of $1,638,0N in
their drive which begins
October 1.
