  • Description

    ALGERIA IS MARKING THE 12TH ANNIVERSARY TOMORROW (TUESDAY) OF THE UPRISING AGAINST FRENCH RULE WITH A MILITARY PARADE THROUGH ALGIERS FEATURING MODERN WEAPONS SUPPLIED BY THE SOVIET UNION. ABOUT 25 FOREIGN DELEGATIONS, MOSTLY FROM NON-ALIGNED AND COMMUNIST COUNTRIES, ARE IN ALGIERS FOR THE CELEBRATIONS.

    COLONEL BOUMEDIENNE, THE ALGERIAN LEADER, IS OPENING THE CELEBRATIONS TONIGHT WITH A NATION-WIDE RADIO AND TELEVISION SPEECH AND WILL MAKE ANOTHER TOMORROW JUST BEFORE THE PARADE, AT WHICH HE WILL TAKE THE SALUTE. AMONG THOSE WATCHING THE PARADE WILL BE MARSHALL K. S. MOSKALENKO, THE FORMER SUPREME COMMANDER OF THE SOVIET UNION'S MISSILE FORCE. HE HEADS A MILITARY DELEGATION INCLUDING AN ADMIRAL AND TWO GENERALS.

    TONIGHT, THE DELEGATIONS ARE ATTENDING THE FIRST OFFICIAL EVENING-DRESS RECEPTION IN ALGIERS SINCE INDEPENDENCE WAS GRANTED TO ALGERIA BY FRANCE FOUR YEARS AGO.

    (ALGERIA'S FIRST POST-INDEPENDENCE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS WILL TAKE PLACE NEXT FEBRUARY. IT WAS ANNOUNCED IN ALGIERS ON SATURDAY THAT THERE WILL BE TWICE AS MANY CANDIDATES AS SEATS AVAILABLE, BUT ALL WILL BE APPROVED BY THE RULING NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT PARTY ON A SINGLE LIST.)
