UN PLAN FOR NATIONAL RECONCILIATION IN CONGO HAS BOGGED DOWN IN MORASS OF LEGALISTIC ARGUMENT OVER HOW MUCH PROVINCIAL AUTONOMY OUGHT TO BE WRITTEN INTO THE CONSTITUTION. BOTH TSHOMBE AND ADOULA CONTEND THAT TO MAKE CONCESSIONS NOW WOULD AMOUNT TO COMMITTING POLITICAL SUICIDE.

THIS WILL BE LAST DAILY CABLE UNLESS SPOTWARRANT. HAVE GOOD TRIP BACK. WILL BE GOOD SEEING YOU.
