"Our country is only as strong

Sylwester is Chaplain at Pope Air
Force Base at Fayetteville.
The Cadets, as future leaders
of men were challenged to bring
out what "no firing squad can
kill," to "bring out what is within."
Battle for Minds
The true conflict is not between
Communism and the West, the
Chaplain emphasized, but is a
"battle for the mind." Commun

break down the "moral fabric of

Two things made driving easier in Chapel Hill
after the last snowfall. The first was the new Cha
pel Hill snow ordinance and the second was the
work of Mr. Shelton Womble, Superintendent of Pub
lic Works for the town of Chapel Hill.
Since Chapel Hill does not get many large snow
falls, there is no need for having a storage of equip
ment designed specially for the purpose. Chapel
Hill uses two truck-plows and two road graders to
plow their snow. All this equipment is used during
the year for regular road work.
The road crew of four men is kept on standby
in case of snow or when snow is expected. They
have a supply of sand and calcium chloride for icy
roads. The men are regular employees of the Pub
lic Works Department.
The new ordinance states that there, will be no
parking in the Chapel Hill Fire District after a
two-inch or greater snowfall accumulates. The Fire
District includes Rosemary and Franklin streets
from Spring Lane west to Carrboro city limits and
all crossing streets.
This facilitates work for . Air. Womble and his
crew when they must plow the entire street up to
the curb. The men are authorized to move auto
mobiles if they are parked and blocking the plows.
The owner of the car must pay tow tosts.
Laos Receives Aid
After Short Delay
VIENTIANE, Laos (UPI) The
Laotian government of Premier
Prince Boun Oum Friday received
its monthly aid allotment of $4
million from the United States af
ter a 12-day delay.
At the same time, it was an
nounced that Boun Oum . would
leave Sunday for Geneva for talks
with the neutralist and pro-Communist
Laotian princes on forma
tion of a coalition government.
Although neither Laotian nor A
merican officials would comment,
the decision to release the funds
was believed prompted by Boun
Oum's acceptance of the invitation
from the 14-nation conference on
Laos to meet in the Swiss city
with neutralist Prince Souvanna
Phouma and Prince Souphanouvong
of the pro-Communist Pathet Lao.
The United States was known to
have been disturbed by the col
lapse of scheduled princely talks
here last month. The breakdown
generally was blamed on the in
sistence of Boun Oum's right-wing
faction that it retain the key de
fense and interior ministries in a
future coalition regime.
The delay in releasing the funds
stirred speculation that the Unit
ed States was applying economic
presurcs to break the impasse
and speed a solution to the Lao
While Boun Oum will go to Ge
neva, it was made clear the right-
wing faction intended to maintain
its tough attitude.
Deputy Premier Gen. Phoumi
Nosavan, the recognized strong
man in the Boun Oum regime,
declared in a belligerent speech
this week that the government
will not give up its fight to keep
the defense and interior police
posts. Phoumi will go to Geneva
with Boun Oum.
Souvanna and Souphanouvong
also have accepted the invitations
from Britain and Russia, co-
chairmen of the conference in Ge
neva. Souvanna is in Europe. The

Cooperation of People

not park in the town Fire District when it is snow
ing or when there is a chance of snow. WThen the
plows go to work, the signs for no parking will be
put up and their cars may be towed away."

cars out of the way almost as soon as the "signs

private equipment when the show gets deeper than

New Snow Plow
The department, according to Mr. Womble, is
better equipped than ever but he hopes to purchase
a new truck plow, at the cost of $750, during this
year. He feels that this past snow removal was the
best job that has ever been done.
In cost, the snow removal varies from time to
time according to the size of the snowfall. This
particular job cost about $200 and, Mr. Womble
added, "about $150 of that cost was for labor and
said Souphanouvong will leave
rebel headquarters in the Plain
of Jars for Geneva "very shortly."

claims by the Pathet Lao that
the rebel forces had "routed"
three government battalions in

western Laos. The rebels also said
there had been fighting in other
areas during the "past fortnight."

he agreed it should be carried out.

Draws Sharp Protest
Some details of the plan have
been leaking out for weeks. The
authoritative Army - Navy - Air

the reorganization already had
"drawn sharp protests from a
number of senior officers."
The office of the chief of engi
neers, which is responsible for ci
vilian and military construction
projects, and the office of the
surgeon general, will hold their
own. But other technical services
will disappear or be absorbed in

services overlapped and compli
cated the problem of administra
