Paris Against Rioting
Associated Press Staff Writer
PARIS. Feb. 3.—Tanks were poised outside Paris tonight
and more than 25,000 anti-riot police stood ready in the
city to repel the uprising which a great many Frenchmen think
will be attempted by the right-wing secret army to break up
prospective independence for Algeria.
In Algiers and Oran, where the terrorist European under-
ground has gunned down op
ponents in the palm-lined
'streets in an effort to keep Al
geria French, troops and po
lice also stood edgily alert.
French and Algerian Na
tionalist negotiators are wide
ly reported, though without of
ficial confirmation, to have
'reached at least a basic agree
,jnent on the eventual inde
pendence of Algeria after sev
en years of bloodshed.
Some felt the ruling rebel
bodies might approve or reject
the settlement by February 6
or 7, before the beginning of
Ramadan, the month when
Moslems fast each day from
sunrise to sunset.
Fears of a Putsch
Fears of a putsch by the
secret army In Algeria, with a
companion uprising in France,
are the subject! of daily con
versations among Frenchmen.
The announcement of an
agreement might trigger such
a final and desperate effort.
Whether President Charles
de Gaulle, supremely confident
of his own judgment and
ability to lead the nation, will;
make some announcement in
his widely heralded radio and
television address Monday
night is still problematical.
For the secret army, time
seemed to be running out if it
hopes to stage a coup. To
achieve a measure of success,
a concerted uprising in Algeria
and France, especially in Paris,
would be necessary. The pre
cautions taken in Paris seemed
to doom any such attempt.
But in Algeria the situation
is different. There the secret
army, led by Raoul Salan, a
fugitive ex-general under sen
tence of death, has broad sym- I
pathy among masses of the
European population.
State of Anarchy
With the evident connivance
of the people it has been able
to create a virtual state of
anarchy in Algiers and Oran,
the two largest cities.
Would French troops fire on
rebel French citizens?
There is a general conviction
that they probably would—but
in an extremity. There are dis
gruntled officers in the ranks,
Arms Cut Study Turns
To Long-Range Systems)
President Kennedy’s new disarmament agency is turning
increased attention to the control of long-range missiles and
aircraft as a key element in arms control measures to be
presented to the Soviet Union.
This is a logical trend toward control of delivery systems I
following the failure of the three-year effort to get Soviet
agreement of a nuclear weap-.
ons test ban.
Hope of eventual agreement
on nuclear warhead control is
not being abandoned, officials
stressed, but they acknowledge
that delivery systems are get-

The purpose, Mr. Foster re- j

the framework of an arms

But to blunt a revolt in the

' For the secret army, with its

might be to modify its plans
and not stage an all-out putsch
after all. It might resort to
■ continued guerrilla warfare in
~ the streets.
Anarchy Could Continue
. | For if the French govern-1
ment and the Algerian rebels!
ido reach final and formal
agreement on independence j
i and the secret army maintains
) a savage anarchy in the cities, [
I the new Algerian government
1 might draw back at the idea'
i of trying to control such seeth
ing centers.
) Such ramifications suggest)
that the government of the
(Nationalists might call on its
jerstwhile enemy, the French)
army, to take on the job—in
i effect returning Algeria to its
present state of rebellion, but
with the Europeans as the reb
els instead of the Algerians.
The distressing problem o»
Frenchmen firing on French
men thus would arise again.
I Premier Michel Debre, in a
speech at Toulouse, appealed to
’Frenchmen today to avert any
I such dilemma. Europeans in
Algeria, he said, must "replace
blind revolt with wisdom and
will to participate actively and
freely in the future of Algeria."
Meanwhile, the reign of ter
roristic attacks continued in
Algiers. Gunmen, evidently
raising a kitty for the secret ■
army, raided a sutyjrban post
office and seized the equivalent i
of $32,000. Nine persons were
killed by European and Moslem
terrorists striking with gun and
trol advocates seeking methods
to warn against surprise attack.,
With soverignity in space still
a wide open subject, it may be
possible to install inspection i
systems that can watch Soviet [
military developments without ■
the Kremlin’s consent.
In the 16 1 2 years since World
War II the Soviet Union has
balked at all disarmament in
spection and control measures.
Besides the study on moni
'toring production of strategic
| delivery vehicles, Mr. Foster
| listed two other priority pro
jects being undertaken by the
Arms Control and Disarma

Kennedy Warns on GM, I
Signs du Pont Tax Bill)
By the Associated Press
| President Kennedy signed the
) du Pont tax bill into law yes
terday, but pointedly sailed
attention to Justice Depart-
I ment efforts to keep control
jof General Motors Corp, away
from the du Pont family.
The new law would cut by
more than half the tax which
stockholders in E. I. du Pont
de Nemours and Co. would
have to pay if the company's
holdings of General Motors
stock are distributed to them,
as the firm contemplates.
The Supreme Court ruled in)
an antitrust proceeding that
du Pont must get rid of its
63 million shares in GM, worth
$3.5 billion. How this is to be
done is still pending before a
Federal District Court in Chi-'
President’s Statement
j Mr. Kennedy said in a state
ment that despite the signing
of the new law:
"The court should not be in
fluenced in its determination as
to what relief is appropriate to
carry out the decision of the
Supreme Court, and the De
partment of Justice should not
be prejudiced in any way in its
effort to enforce the antitrust 1
decision of the Supreme Court.” '
But he noted that the Justice
Department is asking that the
Christiana Securities Corp., a
major du Pont stockholder, be
required to sell any General
(Motors stock distributed to it.l
Christiana is principally owned
by members of the du Pont
family, who would get any of
the stock passed on by it.
i "If the pass-through oc
curred,” Mr. Kennedy said, "a
large percentage of General
Motors stock would be acquired
by members of the du Pont fam
ily. This, it is argued, would
mean that the du Pont family
, would still effectively control
i both du Pont and General Mo
i tors.”
He added at another point
systems “which would produce
valid results even though the
population of an inspected ;
country tried to thwart the
system,” Mr. Foster informed'
the President.
The zonal inspection study
"will be designed to determine
the suitability of zone-by-zone
techniques of Inspection in im
plementing a disarmament
agreement of general territorial
application.” 1
“It should be clearly under
stood that neither the Congress
nor I have approved a divesti
ture which will permit the stock
of General Motors to pass
through Christiana to the
stockholders of Christiana.”
Congress Agrees
Du Pont has owned its Gen
eral Motors stock for more than
40 years.
The company has argued that
the fairest way to meet the
Supreme Court ruling would be
to distribute the GM shares to
its own stockholders. But it
contended it could not do so
under present tax laws because
of the heavy impact. Congress)
went along with this view.
, Without the new law, the
stockholders would have to
pay at full income tax rates on)
the market value of the GM
shares. This would result in
a total tax estimated at more
than $1 billion.
The new law cuts this to
about $470 million. It provides
:that a stockholder would pay
Ino tax on the GM shares un
less they were worth more than
he paid for his du Pont stock.
In that case, he would pay a
capital gains tax on the differ- 1
ence; these rates are half the I
normal income tax rate up to a
25 per cent ceiling.

was transferred under guard to

In the hot afternoon sun to

Mr. Gizenga was flown to the

cials said he was under arrest,
others insisted it was merely
protective custody—all agreed
he would be somewhat less
than a carefree tourist in the
sleepy resort town.
The transfer presumably was
a precautionary measure to re
move him from the scene of
any opposition that might de

Reds Hit West Delays
On Berlin Controversy
! MOSCdw, Feb, 3 (AP).
