    Background: WITH STILL NO EFFECTIVE MEASURES NEARER AT THE UNITED NATIONS TO END KATANGA'S SECESSION, KATANGESE TROOPS ARE CONTINUING TRAINING AS GUERRILLAS AT A BASE IN THE NORTH OF THEIR COUNTRY. LIFE-LIKE EXERCISES ARE UNDERWAY WITH SIMULATED DEATHS AND MACHINEGUN AFFRAYS AMID THE LEAFY CAMOUFLAGE OF THE KATANGESE BRUSHLAND.

    THE CONTINUING FAILURE TO BRING ABOUT THE UNITY OF THE CONGO IS ONE THAT IS CREATING A PERSONAL PROBLEM FOR U THANT AT THE UN. HE'S SAID THAT HIS DECISION TO OFFER HIMSELF FOR ELECTION AS SECRETARY-GENERAL IS IN PART DEPENDANT ON A CONGO SETTLEMENT
    TODAY (MONDAY) HE BEGAN A NEW ROUND OF CONSULTATIONS IN A BID TO FIND ONE - HE IS CONFERRING FIRST WITH M. SPAAK, THE BELGIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, AS WELL AS MR. JUSTIN BOMBOKO, THE CONGOLESE FOREIGN MINISTER.

    BUT HOPES OF A SETTLEMENT SEEM NO NEARER SO FAR WITH PRESIDENT TSHOMBE OF KATANGA REPORTEDLY SAYING: " AN UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN ALL AFRICANS STATES IS NECESSARY AND VERY NEAR - EXCEPT WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF LEOPOLDVILLE." THE PRESIDENT, FOREIGN REPORTERS IN HIS CAPITAL SAY, IS NOTABLY SILENT ON THE SUBJECT OF KATANGA'S MILITARY STRENGTH. BUT IT IS BELIEVED CONSIDERABLY GREATER THAN AT THE TIME OF THE FIGHTING WITH THE UN FORCE LAST DECEMBER
