, Pro-Western Laotian Troops
Seize Strategic Rebel Base
■ VIENTIANE. Laos, Jan. 17
(AP). Pro - Western govern
ment troops pushed their way
into Vang Vleng yesterday and
captured the strategic rebel
base on the road to the royal
capital of Luang Prabahg after
only slight resistance.
A dispatch from Associated
Press Cameraman Fred Waters
said the town fell at 11:25 a m.
yesterday after only a 30-min
ute battle.
Another government column
was inching south from Luang
Prabang, with plans for a
linkup and then a turn east
toward the rebel-held Plains
des Jarres. But the govern
ment’s prospects were seriously
dimmed by reverses on the
southern front, where pro-
Communist forces on Friday
captured Ta Vieng, one of the
government’s staging bases for
the planned offensive against
the Plaine des Jarres.
The situation around Tha
Thom, another government
staging base, was confused.
French sources said Tha Thom
fell Sunday to rebels advancing
from Ta Vieng. Other sources
said it was still in government
hands.
Planes Aid in Battle
Mr. Waters reported rebel
Capt. Kong Le had left 500
defenders in Vang Vieng and
that they fell steadily back
before a determined govern
ment push launched at dawn
yesterday. The government
force was supported by rocket
and machinegun fire from the
Laotian Army’s four United
States-supfrlied trainer-fighter
planes. The battle for the town
Itself lasted only 30 minutes.
The attacking columns came
under rebel mortar and artil
lery fire south of Vang Vieng
Sunday and early Monday. But
as an armored car led the gov
ernment force into the out
skirts of the village, the rebel
rear guard could be seen scat
tering north and west into the
hills.
The armored car raked the
retreating rebels with machine-1
gun fire. The government’s
fighter-trainers roared over
head, strafing and rocketing
the village. Machinegun fire
set eight houses ablaze, and the
occupying force helped the vil
lagers clear their belongings
from the burning homes.
Prisoners Captured
The government force cap
tured 16 prisoners including a
woman, a 105-mm. Howitzer
and a Russian-made 120-mm.
mortar, several jeeps, trucks
and bulldozers in operational
condition and a large number
of gasoline and oil drums with
Russian markings which ap
parently had been airlifted in
by Soviet planes that have been
supplying the rebel forces.
■Col. Kouprasith Abhay. who
commanded the attack, said he
had rdade radio contact with
three isolated companies of
government troops who had
fled earlier from Vang Vieng
and Xieng Khouang to the east.
He said he planned to link up
with them later.
Russia Protests
The Soviet Union protested
to the United States yesterday
that the rocket attacks in Laos
by the United States-supplied
planes “tend to widen the con
flict in Laos and to create a
highly dangerous situation in
that area.”
Soviet Deputy Foreign Min
ister Vasily V. Kuznetsov, in a
warning to United States Am
bassador Llewellyn E. Thomp
son against the American aid
to Premier Prince Boun Oum’s
armed forces, said it was learned
the Americans also intended to
turn over some F-84 Thunderjet
fighters.

ment Press Officer Lincoln

American plans to send jet
fighters to Laos. The Russian

protest stirred speculation that
the Soviets may be planning
to give jet training to the 60
pro-Communist Laotian pilots
they have already announced
they would train.
I, “It would be entirely in keep
ing with the Soviet practice of
accusing the other sidp of do
ing the very thing they are do
ing or planning to do.” one
senior United States official
commented.
United States officials said
that pilots of the pro-Western
Laotian government have not
been checked out for jet opera
tions and none of the govern
ment-held airports are capable
of handling jets.
Mr. Kuznetsov told Mr.
Thompson the Soviet govern
ment hopes the United States
will agree to an international
conference on Laos. Mr.
Thompson in reply commented
that one of the difficulties was
that “wtyrt we call the rebels,
yeu eall the government, and
vice versa.”
The Rraatona have denounced
th* Boun Own forces as
"traitors." Moscow recognises
as the legitimate Laotian gov
ernment the deposed neutralist
regime headed by Prince Sou
vanna Phouma. whose fight, is
now being led by Capt.
Kong Le.
Foreign Ministers Meet
Foreign ministers of four
staunchly anti-Communist
Asian nations—South Korea.
Formosa, South Viet Nam and
the Philippines—were gather
ing today in Manila for a two
day session.
The meeting was arranged
without American approval, or
even prior discussion with the
United States, which has long
called the tune in anti-Com
munist Asia with financial and
’ military aid to these countries.

But when the weather be
came worse, evacuation of the
14 airmen and 14 civilians be
came impossible. The civilians
were on the tower repairing
damage suffered last fall in
Hurricane Donna.
The failure to evacuate per
sonnel from the tower before
the collapse apparently was due
to a decision of the tower
commander, Capt. Gordon T.
Phelan. 34. of Los Angeles.
Unofficial reports xAre that
Capt. Phelan had wanted the

from the aircraft carrier WaSp.
He thus advised the supply ship

Castro Regime
Shields Moves
Against Rebels
HAVANA, Jan. 17 (AP).—
Prime Minister Fidel Castro’s
regime maintained a curtain
of silence today around mili
tary operations against rebels
in Central Cuba’s mountains.
But it announced execution of
three more “terrorists” in Ha
vana and openly purged oppo
sition in labor unions.
The executions, which raised
the unofficial total to 580 since
Mr. Castro took power, were
the first since he announced
those responsible for recent
bombings and sabotage would
be dealt with most severely.
Shot early today in Havana’s
La Cabana Fortress were Juan
Mesa Lopez and Julio Llevra
Suarez, accused of “counter
revolutionary and terrorist ac
tivities” and Balbino Emilio
Diaz, charged with attempting
to kill pro-Castro Commentator
Jose Pardo Llada last fall.
Llevra Suarez also was ac
cused of spying for the United
States Government, but no de
tails were announced.
Others Await Trial* .
They had been convicted less
than 12 hours earlier. La Ca
bana was jammed with an un
disclosed number of prisoners
awaiting ’ trial for anti-Castro
activities.
On the heels of a warning to
the bus drivers’ union to close
ranks behind the Castro revo
lution. the Labor Ministry dis
missed 360 employes of the re
cently nationalized Cuban Elec
tric Co. No official reason was
given but the workers said they
were fired for being "unpatri
otic” and potentially dangerous
to loyal workers.
The dismissed workers dem
onstrated briefly yesterday in
front of company headquarters.
They are members of the elec
trical workers' union, hundreds
of whose members marched on
the Presidential Palace last De
cember in protest against Com
munist attempts to take over
the union. Union leaders were
purged immediately, and a
wave of sabotage against elec
tric lines followed.
Officials would give no re
ports on the progress of the
offensive in the Escambray
Mountains of Las Villas Prov
ince. Howerer, Mr. Castro’s
office denied he was directing
the military operation and
termed absurd a report that as
many as 30,000 government
troops were trying to round up
4,000 rebels.
Guerrillas Far Outnumbered
It is unofficially estimated
that 10,000 to 15,000 militia
men are massed against 300
to 1,000 auU-Castro guerrillas
operating tn the mountains.
There was no government
reaction to the United State*
ban on travel by most Ameri
cans to Cuba. Mr. Castro pos
sibly will retaliate by further
tightening the already stiff
control on Cuban* traveling to
the United States.
The United States ban will
limit Mr. Castro's attempts to
organize support for his cause
in the United States. It will
prevent him from bringing in
handpicked groups of students,
educators and Negro leaders
for free tours which in the
past have turned out to be
indoctrination courses.
All but special categories of
Americans, such as newsmen
and businessmen with previ
ously established connections
in Cuba, will be prevented from
traveling to Cuba. The United
States State Department said
this restriction is necessary be
cause wth the United States
Embassy in Havana closed the
Government cannot guarantee
normal protection to its citi
zens in Cuba.
Blaek Market Active
The United States ban pos
sibly was directed also at
American black marketeers
who, according to American
businessmen in Havana, have
been arranging for vitally need*-
ed supplies to be shipped to
Cuba via Canada.
Cuba, continued to show
.signs of invasion jitters, though
the semiofficial newspaper Rev
olucion reported the demobil
ization of some militiamen
called up to repel the invaders
Mr. Castro had promised were
coming. It was reported a
Cubana airliner was fired on
by militiamen as it arrived in
Havana on a night flight from
Santiago. Guards still were
posted around the former Tex
aco oil refinery in Santiago.

Anglican Church Head
To Quit Post May 31
LONDON, Jan. 17 (AP).—
Dr. Geoffrey Fisher, Archbishop
of Canterbury and spiritual
head of the Church of Eng
land, announced today that he
is retiring on May 31.
Dr. Fisher, who will be 74 on
May 5. told a convocation of
churchmen he feels it is time to
hand over his duties to a yodhg
er man.
“I am convinced that day by
day my wisdom increases.” he
said wryly. "But I am also satis
fied that my stock of patience
diminishes, and that is why I
really think that the time has
come to resign.”
A statement from Prime
Minister Macmillan’s office said
the Archbishop had tendered
!)is resignation to Queen Eliza
beth II and the Queen “received
this intimation with great re
gret.” , 9
The Queen appointed a com
mission consisting of the Arch
bishop of York, the church's
second-ranking prelate, and
the Bishops of London, Durham
and Winchester “to receive and
accept the resignation on her
behalf.”
A statement from Lambeth
Palace, residence of the Arch
bishops of Canterbury, said Dr.
Fisher’s successor has not yet
been named. He will be named
by the Queen on the recom
mendation of Prime Minister
Macmillan.
Among those mentioned in
church circles as possible suc
cessors are Dr. Michael Ram
sey, 56, the Archbishop of
York, and Dr. Robert Wright
Stopford, 59, the Bishop of
Peterborough.
Dr. Fisher had been Arch
bishop of Canterbury since
1945.

U. N. Swedish Troops
Repel Baluba Tribe
ELISABETHVILLE, the
Congo, Jan. 17 (AP).—About
500 rebel Baluba tribesmen
launched four attacks today on
Swedish United Nations troops
guarding a train in Central Ka
tanga Province but were re
pulsed with heavy losses, a
U. N. spokesman said.
The fourth attack came after
the Swedes, warding off three
morning attacks, took the train
into the town of Luena and
dug in around the station.
The Baluba war party
charged the Swedish position,
ran into a storm of automatic
weapons fire, and withdrew.
The spokesman said no casual
ties were reported among the
Swedes.
The Swedish troops were
escorting a train traveling
south from Luena, about 300
miles northwest of Elisabeth
ville. Zalubas had attacked the
same train over the week end,
wounding three Swedes.
The spokesman said the train
was first attacked today a few
miles outside Luena by about
100 Balubas armed with old
guns and bows and arrows.
Rail Track Torn Up
"The Swedes repulsed the
rebels,” he continued, "but the
train then reached part of the
rail track which the tribesmen
had torn up. As the train
hacked up to return to Luena,
about 400 more Balubas ap
peared and made another at
tack.
"The Swedes opened fire and
the Balubas retreated. There
were about 60 Swedish troops
on board the train.
“The train was about 500
yards from Luena station when
the Balubas launched a third
attack which the Swedes drove
off, inflicting many casualties.
The troops are presently dug
in around Luena station and a
helicopter is due to leave from
Kamina base about 100 miles
from Luena with fresh ammu
nition and other supplies.”
The Katanga provincial gov
ernment, meanwhile, an
nounced that it had arrested
more than 400 persons, most
of them supporters of deposed
Congo Premier Patrice Lumum
ba, following discovery of a
plot to assassinate Provincial
President Moise Tshombe and
his cabinet ministers. Those
arrested were said to include
about 15 Europeans.

after one of the most historic
moments of .his career, his
meeting on December 2 with
Pope John XXIII. He was the
first Archbishop of Canterbury
to meet the head of the Roman
Catholic Church since the Ref
ormation.
Dr. Fisher had made a main
task of this ministry to try to
bring the Christian churches
closer together. His call on
Pope John earned widespread
admiration, and Pope John
said it left hope for eventual
solution of the great problems
dividing their churches.

was released on Mr. Tshombe’s
personal order.

that therefore he was not sub

Finally bowing to the opposi
tion of the church, the Princess
renounced Capt. Townsend and
later married Antony. Arm
strong-Jones.
Dr. Fisher was one of the
youngest archbishops of Can
terbury in modem times when
he was enthroned at the age
of 57. And 30 years earlier he
had been the youngest head
master of ancient Repton
School.
Known for his tolerance and
unconventionality. Dr. Fisher
has been called a non-political
bishop.
Only a week ago he said
applying the words “Protes
tant” and “Catholic” to re
ligious groups is out of date.
The words confuse everyone
and different persons define
them differently, he said.
A quiet, contemplative man
with a twinkle in his eye, the
Archbishop enjoys family life
most.
A believer in large families,
he once said “A family only
truly begins with three chil
dren. One child is no family,
but something of a misfortune.
Two children are no family,
but a failure half way.” He
has six sons.
Dr. Fisher works long and
hard over his sermons, using a
prepared text when making for
mal address but speaking
without text from the pulpit.
Walking and reading detec
tive stories are his hobbles, al
though he was one of the 16
best oarsmen at Oxford and a
regular sports fan while head
master at Repton.
Upon his retirement. Dr.
Fisher will continue in the
House of Lords as a life peer.
Such peerages are not heredi
tary, and his will not be handed
down at his death to his eldest
son. Dr. Fisher will also get
a retirement’pension of £2,000
($5,600) a year.
