Foyle appeared In Orange Coun-

document from the Dixie Pipeline
Co. which asked permission to con-
struct a line across the north end
of the county.
The county still is awaiting per-
mission from the U.S, Corps of En-
gineers to construct bridges across
Adams Bayou. A permit already
has been granted for a bridge
structure over Cow Bayou.
The structures will be on West

Russians would suspend the cold

Cooper of Liberia told a reporter,
"but Gromy.ko's biting attack on

Speaking at the beginning of a
new assembly debate on the Con-
go, Gronjyko once again accused
Hammarskjold of organizing the
murder of Patrice Lumumba, de-
manded the secretary-generai's
replacement by a three-man di-
rectorate, and called for an end
to the-U.N. Congo operation with-

Non-Communist delegates — es-
pecially from Africa and Asia —
were openly impressed with Stev-

Gromyko spoke'"in the worst and

WASHINGTON (AP) - Presi-
dent Kennedy asked Congress to-
day for a drastically revamped
long-term foreign aid program—
the most sweeping overhaul since
the Marshall Plan started in 1948.
It would include $7.3 billion in
five-year' loan authority to meet
"the crucial decade of develop-
which would bypass congressional
appropriations procedures. Key
legislators Rebuffed Eisenhower
on similar counts in the past.

would run several times the $7.3
billion proposed for economic de

For the coming year, the pro

Dwight D. Eisenhower for forfcigti
• In a special message to Con-
gress, Kennedy said, "It will both
efit and benefit us to take this
step boldly. For we are launching
a decade of development On which
will depend, substantially, the
kind of world in which we and
our children shall live."
'■Kennedy said the 1960s offer a
folden chance to put more than
alf of the peoples in underdevel-
oped lands on their own feet
economically and the rest closer
to the day when they no longer
need aid. "
But without this massive out-
side help from the United States
and other free industrial coun-
tries, he said, resulting chaos
abroad would cost even more and
"would J)e disastrous to our na-
tional security, harmful to our
comparative prosperity and offen-

The President hoped to over-

While officials were c 1 o i e-
mouthed about the President's de-

initial steps for increased aid
would embrace training of the

ly an increase in firepower
through providing more modern
types of conventional weapons.

Southeast Asian kingdom suddenly
develop into an emergency threat
to the existence of the Laotian
government, it is understood that
Kennedy would be prepared to
consider quickly an appeal for
emergency aid on a large scale.
At present, however, officials
said privately that there is no
serious thought of direct interven-
tion by U.S. forces. The question
of some form of intervention, per-
haps by countries in the area,
may arise when the foreign min-
isters of the Southeast Asia Treaty
Organization meet next Monday
in Bangkok, Thailand. Secretary
of State Dean Rusk will leave here
Thursday night to attend that ses-
Kennedy conferred for 90 min-
utes Tuesday with Rusk, Secre-
tary of Defense Robert S. McNa-
mara and other tOp military and
diplomatic policy-makers. No fur-
ther meeting was scheduled today
but the President was reported
keeping a close personal watch
on the Laotian crisis and on the
preparation of measures he is re-
ported to have ordered set in mo-
tion to deal with it.
Following the White House con-
ference Rusk returned to the
State Department and met with
British Ambassador Sir Harold
Caccia and French Ambassador
Herve Alphand. Britain and
France are members of SEATO
along with the United States,
Australia, Pakistan, the Philip-
pines, New Zealand and Thailand,
i The SEATO membership has
been split over what kind of ac-
tion to take since the situation in
Laos flared into a new crisis last
December. Britain and France
have been stropgly opposed to any
kind of outside intervention.
The Kennedy administration's
attitude on this pojnt is said to
be that if the introduction of out-
side forces becomes necessary in
order to prevent the ..country from
fteing overrun by Soviet-backer'
pro-Communist rebels the decision
should be made and the action
taken on an allied basis rather
than by the United States alone.
Zellerbach employe, had asked for
the peace bonds in connection with
an alleged assault upon his person
about 6:30 a.m. Saturday.
Benoit and Cooper were identi
fied as members of Local 4-23 of
the Oil, Chemical and Atomic
Workers Union (AFL-CIO), with
which CZ plant officials are nego-
tiating for a work contract.
Judge Caillavet, after hearing
testimony by Rolling, placed $1,500
peace bonds against the two and
made a strong statement in which
he said violence in- labor circles
would not be tolerated..
Benoit and Cooper earlier had
pleaded innocent to charges of
threat of take life and had been
released on $500 bonds each. Their
attorney, John O. Young, entered
pleas of innocent yesterday to the
complaints which were ready by
Dist. Atty. Jfcmes A. Morris.
At the beginning of the hearing,
which was in 128th District Court
because spectators overflowed
county court quarters. Judge Cail-
lavet warned. "I don't want dem-
onstrations of any kind after I
render my verdict."
Rollins described the happenings
Saturday morning which led to the
hearing as. "I saw them on High-
way 62 at the intersection of the
Orangefield highway .' . .they
came up fast in a 1955 Chevrolet
and Cooper pulled a pistdl and
made me get out , . . they said if
I came back to work that night,

Rollins then said that Cooper had
"hit me with the pistol and Benoit
with the blacjcjack."
Young asked only one question of
Rollins and that was whether he'd
ever been in court before. Rollins
said he had not.
Young then told the court, "Since

Kennedy appealed first for the
group to give "direction to the
general movement of wages and
prices." This was in addition to
his appeals for advice on job and

placement of workers, foreign
trade competition and a host of
other administration headaches.

visers, recalling that prior presi-
