    Background: The scene in Amman, Jordan, April 27, and Jordanians - many of them technicians - were queue-ing up to volunteer for service with he rebel liberation army in Algeria. Six hundred volunteers enlisted within four days, according to a recent statement from an Algerian representative in Amman.

    Foreign volunteers, especially technicians, were called for in an appeal by the Algerian provisional government in Tunis, April il, after a decision to strengthen the liberation cause.

    With this new boast for the liberation campaign there are fears that the Algerian war will get "hotter" and present more serious problems for both communist and Western countries.
