    Background: PRESIDENT TSHOMBE OF KATANGA IS BACK IN ELISABETHVILLE. THOUSANDS OF WILDLY-CHEERING AFRICAN AND SOME EUROPEANS GAVE HIM A BIG WELCOME WHEN HE RETURNED TO THE CAPITAL ON TUESDAY.

    M. TSHOMBE, WHO LEFT KATANGA A MONTH AGO, TOLD A DENSE CROWD IN ELISABETHVILLE'S MAIN SQUARE: " I AM OVERJOYED TO SEE YOU AGAIN. IF YOU THOUGHT I HAD RUN AWAY YOU WERE WRONG. IF WE ARE TO DIE WE WILL DIE TOGETHER.

    "I ONLY WENT TO FETCH THESES EXTRA EYES". HE WAS REFERRING TO A PAIR OF GOLD-RIMMED SPECTACLES HE WAS WEARING. HE QUIPPED: "I HAVE BEEN GIVEN A PAIR OF NEW EYES (HIS SPECTACLES) TO SEE AND WATCH YOU BETTER."
    (PRESIDENT TSHOMBE HAS REPORTEDLY RETURNED TO AN UNEASY SITUATION WITH GROWING UNEMPLOYMENT AND THE THREAT OF SOCIAL DISORDERS LOOMING OVER THE CITY.)
