GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala ( U P I ) -- M i l i t a r y leaders who ousted President Miguel Ydigoras Fuenles to prevent what they termed a threatened Communist takeover maintained light control today of this smaP Central American republic. . . Ydigoras and his wife were flown to exile in Managua, Nicaragua, in a Guatemalan airliner Sunday following a bloodless Saturday night coup d'elnl. The deposed president (old newsmen there that "Ihc change is good for Guatemala and for Central Amor- icn." The military installed Col.' En- rquie Pcralla Aairdia, defense minister in Ilio ousted government, us chief executive with power lo rule by decree, Pcralla, 54, suspended Ihc constitution, dismissed the National Assembly and banned activities o( political parlies. Tanks and troops were posted in strategic spots throughout the capital and air force planes circled the city. A dusk-lo-dawn curfew, already announced by Ydigoras because of political unrest, was put inlo cf feet Sunday night. The capital appeared calm and there were mi reports of trouble elsewhere. The military action was be. lievcd set off by announced plans of former President Juan Jose Arcvalo, a leflist but self-pro, claimed anti-Communist, to rally support us n candidate in the presidential elections next November. Tlie army announced Ihnt A valo had succeeded in slippingjconsidorcd one of the most ardcnl inlo tlie country from Mexico lasl week. Arovalo's administration from 19-M to 11)51 preceded Ihe pro. Communist regime of Col. .lacobo Arbcnz which was overthrown by an invasion of exiles in 1!)54. Arc- valo had been an exile in Mexico until last week. Accused of Cdniplaconcy In an nnnminccmcnt, the military accused Ihc Ydigorns government of complacency In its dealing with Communists and charged Ihc Reds have taken advantage of ihe democratic constitution lo "infiltrate the government and political parlies, splitting Ihc democratic forces and, nt Ihc same time, unifying Ihcir own." Ydigoras generally had been N. Y, Newspapers (Continued from Page 1) slraint, confined its enthusiasm lo a four-column head summing up: '114-day newspaper strike ends as engravers ratify contract; loss is in excess of $190,000,000." Some estimates of Ihe economic losses to the city due to the shutdown ranged up to $450 mil- ion. Another Happy Development Now that the other papers have settled their differences with the unions, Ihe Post is expected to ilart soon on ils own negotiations with unions which have been working under old contracts. The Post resumed publication March 4 after breaking away from tlie publishers association. Another- happy development on Ihe newspaper scene Sunday occurred in Cleveland, where the Press and Plain Dealer have been shut down in a 124-day-olc strike. One of tlie last major pb slacles to ending that walkou was overcome when striking printers came lo Icrms with man agemenl. This left only the ma chinists without an agreement. The New York dailies sloppet publication of their editions in the city when printers struck the Times. News. World-Telegram Sun and Journal-American. The formula proposed by Wagner whicli eventually settled the winters' strike, Ihen the other union disputes, was a $12.63 per week package over a two-year contract period. The increase was reflected in new prices for the Times and Herald Tribune today, jp a nickel to ten cents. Part Of Solulion But the money increase was only a part of llie solulion. A 'ommon expiration dale for con- racls of all 10 newspaper unions was one of the main points won iy the printers, as well as job security in (he face of automated :ypcsetting. The strike by photoengravers legan earlier this month just when Ihe printers' settlement stirred hope tlie end was at hand. Seeking the 35-hour work week al- ·cady won by printers, Ihe photoengravers turned down the first contract proposed by union leaders. Sunday they accepted a mod- ficd version which dropped three days of personal leave, added an extra ?1.63 in wages but left Ihe vork week provisions unchanged.
