Endind M«»eh St, 1*S4 -> 1,414 Overthrow of the Communist government o£ Guatemala sets a pattern of behavior for the United States which the Russians will find hard to convert to Red propaganda. If any responsible nation ever was tempted to intervene it was the United States, confronted by a organization close to the .Panama Canal and supplied with . [ major armament by Russia's j puppet government of Poland. And in the old days, intervene is I precisely what we would have done. The Navy would have rolled down the Caribbean, the Marines would i have landed; we'd have wrapped up the "war" in a week or two — but at the same time wo would have given Russia a Sunday pro" ganda punch to throw at us. And atin America, smaller than us, poorer, with infinitely less fighting strength, might well have let resentment against North America lead her into an unwise flirtation with the Kremlin. But if the United States had any hand whatsoever in the Guatemalan brawl it doesn't show in the record All Indochina to Red Troops to Re dTroops By LARRY ALLEN SINGAPORE (IP)— French withdrawal from the southern sectors of the Red River Delta looks 1 ike the beginning of the end for that strategic area and possibly for all of Inodchlna. The delta, long regarded b y the French and most Western powers as the main bastion against the stf'eep of communism into the rest of Indochina and Southeast Asia, is crumbling in huge blocks. The war against the Communist-led Vietminh. now in its eighth year, may end with P cease-firo giving the rebels northern Indochina as their peace prize or they may take the area by smashing the French. In either event it would be difficult to find anyone who believes that would content Vietminh chief Ho Chi Mirth. WASHINGTON Wl Sen. Doug las (Dill) today moved to' send the administration's omnibusl tax revision bill back to the Finance Committee. His motion carried instructions to the committee to c Ut down ben efits f or corporations and wealthy individuals, and raise them for persons in low and middle income brackets. Republican leaders expressed confidence they could d efeat the maneuver. Bulletin; Senate Set for Vote on Tax Issue By JOE HALL WASHINGTON -Weary sena tors, a marathon session behind them and promise of a three-day holiday ahead, gathered for a quick push to final passage today of the administration's disputed tax over haul bill. Leaders on both sides predicted | Most observers French; Viet the remaining half-dozen or so Rival Leaders in Guatemala Sign Peace By ARLOS R. ESCUDERO 1 SAN SALVADbR El Salvador Wl —Rebel chief Carlos Castillo Armas and government boss Col. -Elfego Monzon signed a peace pact here today ending Guatemala's two week-old civil war. They pledged a continuing fight to wipe out communism 'in that Central American nation. v The treaty provides for a new five-man military junta-Guatemala's fourth government this week with Monzon as top man. The other members include Castillo and one of his aides and two ministers in Monzon's outgoing regime.. Authoritative sources said this arrangement would continue for 15 days, after which the junta will elect a "permanent 1 chief. The agreement was signed at namese and foreign — are convinced he will have all of Indochina in a very' short time, regardless of any line drawn by the Geneva conference, once the' final — and at least up to now we seem \ chapter is written in the delta. to have convinced our Latin'neigh- JWrs we were innocent bystanders. 1r know it sounds incredible. But as far as the record is concerned any aid to the counter-revolution must have been by devious private channels. Obviously it appears forthright America is changing. Nowadays, we have to resort to European cloak-and-dagger methods instead of openly calling out the Marines. It's a point that should go over 11 with our Latin neighbors. They :e finesse. And they may charitably overlook the fact that the U. S. A, couldn't possibly have tolerated a Russian-backed government so close to the Panama Canal — because, if the truth be known, down in their own hearts the Latin Americas recognize that couldn't tolerate it either. they The French high command says the pull-out from the rich southern' areas of the delta region was nee essary to strengthen the defenses against an expected "human sea 1 ' assault along the Hanoi Haiphong railroad and highway. An enclave 64 miles long be tween Hanoi and the port of Hai phong and less than 30 miles deep on each sicle of the road and rail line is being bolstered with thou sands of French Union troops. But there seemed little hope the less than 100 French battalions can hold out long even in the enclave against a big Vietminh attack. When the Vietminh hit, they can use six to eight Red Chinese trained and equipped divisions.^ in eluding the four which smashed the French Union fortress of Dien Bien Phu. Aiding them will:' be amendments would be disposed of in short order. Several senators said they planned to vote against the giant tax revision measure on final pas sage. But its approval, pretty- much in the form sought by President Eisenhower, seemed assured. . Members were saddened by the death of 70-year-old Sen. Hugh Butler of Nebraska, announced in the chamber just before the ', Senate wound up 13 hours of debate at midnight last night. Butler was the second-ranking Republican on the Finance Com mittee, which wrote the Senate ver sion of the tax bill. At 11 p. m. half an hour before Butler dieri of a stroke suffered Wednesday night, Sen. Bennett (R Utah) said the long debate on the tax bill during the woek probably had contributed to Butler's!: col lapse. . Sen.
