Soon May Leave Domingo S A N T O DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (ff)--Rising resentment over the.presence of foreign troops here is reported to have prompted the Organization of . American States (OAS) to consider, disbanding its peace force. The 8,000-man Inter-American Peace , Force--Including 6,800 U.S. troops--lias be come a prime target,of politi cal'parties contending in the Dominican election campaign Much of. the criticism is be Heved aimed at attracting tin vofe of nationalist element: inutile June 1. balloting, bu OAS officials fear the mount ing bitterness may provok extremists into more piiysi cal attacks on the hemispher troops. 4. * * * * SINCE the peace force ar rived here last May in th wake of the Dominican revo lulion, 24 of its men hav he~0n killed and 174 wounde Except for 13 Latin Amcr cans wounded, all the casua ties have been suffered b U.S. troops. The basic purpose of th peace force's presence is t insure compliance with tl OAS peace formula that s up a provisional government and to keep rival factions from plunging the nation into a new civil war. Under terms of the OAS formula, the force was to be withdrawn from Santo Domingo to suburban camps as soon as the physical barriers arid political conditions dividing the city were eliminated. * * * * CONTINUING strife, however, forced it into dangerous aud unpopular tasks like rioi control and street patrolling SIDE GLANCES By Gill Fox "I think Roger was about to propose, but he suddenly remembered he was overparked!" that Domincan troops and police normally would handle. This developed, it is said, from Provisional President Hector Garcia-Godoy's reluc tance to use the army and national police for political and practical reasons: --H'e didn't want to use an army uver which his control was highly doubtful to supervise a segment of the civilian population \vith which it onlj recently had been at war. --The decimated, disorgan ized police force was noi geared for anything but mino; policing chores. Although the basic condi tions that touched off 'the April revolution have not dis appeared altogether, the sit uation is believed by most of ficials to have' improved sub So much more... ·: Costs no [moreMs · " M O D E R N COMPLETE M O R T U A R Y Conveniently located--in a bes'ulilul Memorial Park tantially.

He got off to a running start by conferring on himself the nation's highest award; "Hero of the Soviet Union." To justify such a decoration, he concocted a hair-raising account of wartime bravery. Local officials swallowed the story, and Georgy began to cash in on his hero role. The newspaper Bakinsky Rabochy (Baku Worker) gave an account of Georgy's progress: He rode free on buses, streetcars and other public conveyances. He got tickets to movie theaters without standing in line. Ho graciously accepicii presents from admiring kindergarten children. He was wined, dined and otherwise honored by the citizens pf Baku. Then the law moved in, but not because of Georgy's war-hero ruse. Rummaging through his apartment, for some unexplained reason, police found a clock, keys, money, machine parts, blank certificates of merit for outstanding work and some linoleum from a local factory. All the stuff was stolen. "It is incredible that this thief could have deceived so many people," said Bak- insky Rabochy. The paper didn't say what happened to Georgy. 'oreign financial needs of the of foreign assistance for last 19 alliance nations for 1966 will amount to between 52.88 billion and $3.02 billion. Last year's total was '$2.7 billion and was met by foreign and local investment.

Most important for Califprnians is the company's proposal to bring large new amounts of natural gas to the Los Angeles area. If approved by the FPC, the low prices California pays for gas will go even lower. That's because we will be able to make fuller use of our existing pipeline facilities, bringing gas even more economically from prolific nearby gas fields in the southwest. In fact, economies under our proposed project are so great that we will be able to cut the rates for all of the gas we now furnish California, as well as for the new supplies. It will mean lower rates for natural gas distributors we serve in both northern and southern California, and even for. our customers in Arizona, New Mexico, west Texas and southern Nevada. And every foot of gas we supply will be fully regulated by State and Federal authorities to assure that now, and in the future, the service rendered will be in the public interest. If, for example, regulatory authorities say more gas should be supplied to southern California for smog-control, our project can furnish all the gas that is needed. Backing up El Paso Natural's project (and, by the way, none of the other existing or proposed pipeline companies has ever been able to offer gas to California at prices as low as ours) are vast reserves of gas. These reserves are close to Calif ornia--largely in New Mexico and west Texas. That's important to you, because transportation costs make up a large part of the price of gas to the state, and these ·supplies have to come only a short distance. Details on this low-cost project, and on the millions of dollars it will save California, are contained in our Annual Report for 1965. It also reviews other aspects of El Paso's progress .during the year. We'd like to send you a copy.
