    PRESIDENT BOUMEDIENNE YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) INSPECTED THE CLUB DES PINS IN ALGIERS WHERE THE AFRO-ASIAN CONFERENCE IS DUE TO START ON NOVEMBER THE FIFTH. ALTHOUGH THE PREMISES ARE ALMOST READY, THE CHINESE REPUBLIC IS PRESSING FOR AN INDEFINITE POSTPONEMENT OF THE CONFERENCE.

    ALTHOUGH THE CLUB DES PINS, WHERE THE CONFERENCE IS DUE TO MEET IS NOW ALMOST READY, THERE SEEMS STRONG DOUBT AS TO WHETHER IT WILL BE USED YET. THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC HAS SAID THAT IT MAY INTRODUCE A RESOLUTION TO POSTPONE THE CONFERENCE ??? INDEFINITELY WHEN THE PREPARATORY COMMITTEE MEETS AGAIN TODAY (WEDNESDAY) CHINA HAS SAID THAT THE TIME FOR THE MEETING "WAS NOT RIPE".

    CHINA, PAKISTAN AND CAMBODIA HAVE URGED POSTPONING THE HEADS OF STATE CONFERENCE WHILE INDIA AND INDONESIA HAVE ARGUED THAT IT SHOULD GO AHEAD. TANZANIA, A MEMBER OF THE COMMITTEE BUT ABSENT FROM THE ALGIERS MEETING, HAS ISSUED A STATEMENT SAYING THAT THE CONFERENCE SHOULD BE POSTPONED INDEFINITELY.

    ALGIERS PRESS SERVICE, THE OFFICIAL ALGERIAN NEWS AGENCY, LAST NIGHT INSISTED THAT THE AFRO-ASIAN CONFERENCE WOULD GO AHEAD AS PLANNED DESPITE "THE VOICES OF SIRENS WHO SOW THE POISON OF DOUBT."
    THE CONFERENCE, ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR JUNE, HAS ALREADY BEEN POSTPONED ONCE FOLLOWING THE REMOVAL OF PRESIDENT BEN BELLA BY COLONEL HOUARI BOUMEDIENNE.
