Faure Says His Cabinet Backs Plan On Africa

Premier Announces Acceptance After 91\/,-Hour Session To Restore Peace

PARIS (Monday), Aug. 29 (U.P)—Premier Edgar Faure announced early today that the French Cabinet has ac- cepted his plan for solving the bloody North African question after a marathon, early-hours meeting.

The 9%-hour Cabinet session came after a week which has seen the worst uprising in North Africa in 20 years. More than 1800 persons were killed in Mo- rocco and neighboring Algeria

“The Cabinet has accepted

Cabinet session. Authoritative sources said the agreement was still far from complete, however, especially on the question of the return of exiled Moroccan Sul- tan Sidi Mohammed Ben Yous- sef to his homeland.

Officials said a rebel band! of some 200 fighters had! crossed into Tunisia from Al-| geria to battle the French.

Premier Faure has been fighting for the life of his own government, with members of his ghicenter coalition threatening to bolt the Cabinet over the Moroccan issue.

Faure met with his ministers late yesterday at the Elysee Palace residence of President Rene Coty, who came “from his weekend chateau at Ram- bouillet to preside. » |

The girl said the suspect ‘came to her home on the night of the murder of the 58-year-old Maryland University registrar —February 28, 1954—and asked to destroy some bioody clothing he brought with him

The girl also led police to a pair of bloody trousers which she said she had not destroyed after her boy friend told- her that he had “killed someone.”

Rapid progress of the Com- munist drive in Asia to over- come air and logistical weak- nesses has the Pentagon wor- ried.

Communist China alteady is the fourth-ranking air power of the world after the United States, the Soviet Union and Britain, according to Gen. Na- than F. Twining, Chief of Staff of the VU. S. Air Force.

Moreover, Red China's power has helped build the North Korean Air Force, which hardly existed at the time the truce talks began, into upwards of 700 planes, including some 300 MIG-15 interceptors.

In Iindochina, the Communist Vietminh forces are getting their first planes to back up the 350,000 battle - hardened troops.

As the Communists increase their air power, the biggest western advantage in the Orient will go by the boards. It was precisely in air power and logis- tics—the science of military supply—that the West's advan- tage lay, as the Communists have long enjoyed superiority | in manpower.

Exact numbers of planes are not too important, for as Twining and his deputies point out, the Communist capabilities for moving combat aircraft “overnight from the enormous pool of close to 8000 in eastern Siberia cannot be ignored or’ doubted.” |

What counts even more is the] rapidly expanding system of! Communist #t air bases which, during the last few months, | have been rushed to completion’ in North Korea and along the China Coast opposite Formosa. |
