  • Description

    THE AMERICAN FIGHTER "DEL SOL" DOCKED AT MATADI JULY 30 AND UNLOADED A CARGO OF GIFTS FROM THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. MR. DIOMI, PRESIDENT OF THE LEOPOLDVILLE STATE, AND MEMBERS OF THE CENTRAL CONGOLESE GOVERNMENT ATTENDED THE QUAYSIDE CEREMONY WHEN THE AMERICAN CHARGE D'AFFAIRES OFFICIALLY HANDED OVER THE CARGO.

    RICE, FLOUR, DRUGS AND EVEN MOTOR VEHICLE TYRES WERE SWUNG FROM THE "DEL SOL", ONE OF THE LATEST CRAFT IN THE U.S. MERCANTILE FLEET. THIS MATERIAL AID FOLLOWS HARD ON THE AMERICAN SUGGESTION THAT ECONOMIC SANCTIONS BE IMPOSED ON PRESIDENT TSHOMBE OF KATANGA TO FORCE HIM INTO SUBMITTING TONA CENTRAL GOVERNMENT UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF MR. ADOULA.

    A HOPE THAT A THREATENED CONGO CRISIS MIGHT BE AVERTED AROSE THAT SAME DAY AFTER A REPORT THAT MR. ADOULA AND HIS CENTRAL GOVERNMENT ARE IN FAVOUR OF A COMMISSION TO EXAMINE THE POSSIBILITIES OF A FEDERAL CONSTITUTION, AND IDEA ALWAYS SUPPORTED BY PRESIDENT TSHOMBE, AND THE REMAIN REASON FOR THE DEADLOCK IN THE RECENT SERIES OF TALKS BETWEEN THE TWO MEN.
