'the* beforemidnight OVERTHROW WORRIES U.S. Latin Pact Periled WASHLVGTON (UPl) -US. officials viewed with some concern Sunday the overthrow of the government of President Ydigorat Fuentes of Guatemala. Fear was expressed that the overthrow would jeopardize implementation of the "Declaration of Central America" signed by President Kennedy and presidents of five Central American countries and Panama just II days ago. While the new self-proclaimed president. Defense Minister Enrique Peralta Azurdia. vowed to maintain order and prevent Communist subversion, the Kennedy administration was reported to have reservations 'over the fact that a constitutionally elected government had fallen victim to a military coup_. Some diplomats h e r e , however, believed that Peralta would take orderly steps to eventual elections. The only publicly stated official reaction came from a State Department spokesman who said the Army coup "did not come as a surprise" because it was known that the military leaders feared a possible take-over by leftist former president Juan Jose Arevalo. . Arevalo, a declared left winger, has been accused of having been a Communist. What m o s t distressed Washington officials was that the overturn of the Ydigoras r e g i m e would jeopardize Central American talks scheduled to begin in Managua. Nicaragua. this wetlc 1« 'TjJcsient the ·Declaration of Central America" signed March 20 at Saa Jcse, Costa Rica. The document envisioned moves to step up Central American economic integration and to strengthen security measures against C o m m u n i s t subversion from Cuba. At least two governments. Costa Rica and Honduras, are expected to withhold recognition of the new Guatemalan government. Whereas Ydigoras was known as a staunch foe of communism and of Cuban Premier Fidel Castro, many hemisphere governments regarded him as an erratic and authoritatarian ruler who more than once used a communist threat to cover up the ineffectiveness of his own government after he joined President Ken- Arbenz' successor, was assas- me my skin,** he vowed. and the chief executives sinated in 1957.
