An Bolivia Any I Help Needed German Minister Ousted for Plot Aimed at Revolt WASHINGTON (UP.) — Acting Secretary of state Summer Welles said today that the United States had assured the Bolvian government of full "United. States assistance if Bolivia's ousting of the German minister from that country should result in any international incident. Welles said that the ousted German minister, Ernst Wendler. would not be permitted to come to the United states. Bolivia has. been assured of that, he added. The Bolivian government declared Wendler persona non grata Saturday because, the government asserted, he was involved in a reported German "Putsch." . Welles asserted that Bolivia apparently acted under a resolution j adopted by the American republics at Havana last summer in which it was agreed that the 21 American governments would prevent any action which might undermine the peace of the western hemisphere. The assurances to Bolivia, he added, said that the United States would live up to every commitment and understanding that has been undertaken with the Amen can republics in the spirit as well as in letter. Welles praised the recent statement of President Santos of Colombia that his nation would cooperate fully in the hemispheric defense policy. He described Santos as one of the great statesmen of the Americas. Above cemetery,
