PAGE 24 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N WEDNESDAY, MARCH *, 1966 CRISIS BREWING Guatemalan Party Claims Fraud In National Vote GUATEMALA -W- Guatemala faced a serious crisis to- Hav as rival TV}litic?J p8rtlfiS disputed the results of the'presi- dential election. The government-backed Institutional Democratic P a r t y (PID) charged fraud in strongholds of the moderately leftist Revolutionary Party and demanded annulment of the vote in the capital and in five districts in the interior. v Revolutionary Party candidate Julio Cesar Mendez Montenegro, who leads in the results, claimed "total victory by absolute majority" and declared himself president-elect. - The latest official figures from in unspecified number of the country's 324 municipalities gave Mendez 190,822 votes, Col. Juan de Dios Aguilar of the PID 142,586 and Col. Miguel Angel Ponciano of the right-wing National Liberation Movement 100,404. Although the official figures put the civilian candidate well in the lead, they left him short of the majority required for election. If no one gets a majority, the new congress elected Sunday will choose between the two high men. "I don't believe the information of the electoral commission," said Mendez, a former law professor. "It does what the government wants.' Revolutionary Party returns from 210 of the 324 municipalities last night gave Mendez 169,782, Aguilar 95,005 and Ponciano 80,600. Although these also left Mendez short of a majority, officials of the party said returns en route from missing districts would give him the margin necessary for election. They added, however, t h a t they had received reports that officials of the government party had started invalidating revolutionary party votes in unre- ported municipalities to eliminate the party's majority. Revolutionary^ Party officials claiineu a w 0£ of tiic 55 CGii- gressional states being filled by the election. Mendez said he would accept a runoff if he is convinced the o f f i c i a l returns are honest. Then, he said, his party would probably combine with Ppncia- nos to give him a majority in the 55-seat congress. "I trust the military government will recognize our triumph and not put obstacles in the way," he told a cheering crowd at the headquarters of his party. He told a news conference earlier that he was afraid "there could be civil war in Guatemala if there is electoral fraud," and "Guatemala may become a second Santo Domingo.' If fraud is proved, he said, he could "call in a moment 60,000 men and women into the central plaza in front of the national palace to protest." City Sued For $120,000 In Nightgown Arrest Case The City of Tucson is being sued for $120.000 by a woman who says she was arrested at her home last Nov. 3 on a 14- month-old jaywalking charge and was taken by police to jail in her nightgown.

Maricopa Voters Reject Flood Control Program PHOENIX -- W -- Three months after the disastrous Salt River flood, Maricopa County voters have rejected overwhelmingly a long-planned flood control project calling for $22.7 million in bonds. The margin of defeat w a s three to one. - The vote in 102 of 104 precincts was 36,003 to 12,526. Election officials said votes cast in the Cave Creek and Gila Bend- Tonopah precincts would be counted sometime today. The funds .had been intended to buy rights of way and pay local expenses in a $155 million county wide flood control program. The federal government ·would have paid $93 million for opposed the bonds, and so did voters in all but three of the 99 polling places. Those three were n the Scottsdale area. In other areas, the proposal was beaten by margins as high as eight to one. "The people in favor just didn't take time to vote," commented John C.
