Photograph article dated February 13, 1962 partially reads, "Michael Struelens, chief of the Katanga Information Service, told a Canoga Park audience Monday night that some Washington officials are 'afraid' to allow Katanga chief Moishe Tshombe to visit this country. 'Tshombe will make you understand that there have been great injustices by the United Nations,' Struelens told an audience of 70 persons at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall. Tshombe, who seeks permission to visit this country, is 'pro-Western, pro-American and anti-Communist,' Struelens stressed. Sponsored by the Fair Play for Katanga Committee, Struelens will appear at a series of Valley meetings this week. He speaks tonight at 8 at Burbank American Legion Hall, 940 W. Olive, Burbank. Struelens gained nationwide attention in December when State Department officer Carl Rowan accused him of spending large amounts of money to influence United States policy toward Katanga."
