Delia Dcmocr«f-T!m«!f Friday^.May 28, '65 American Intervention In Dominican Republic May Influence Cold War By STEWART HEMSLEY WASHINGTON (UPI) - Just · month ago today President Johnson sent U.S. troops into the Dominican Republic, causing diplomatic seismographs to tremble wildly throughout (he world. Th« repercussion spread far bcyonrl the sun-baked Caribbean island where n bloody struggle for control between rival factions threatened American lives «nd prompted Johnson's intervention. With «n uneasy truce in the civil war apparently in hand, the seismographs are no\\ steady. But the analysis of what tales (OAS) to cop« with such crises.

All too often' Possibly worst, SEAl, EDITOR'S NOTE: American intervention in the Dominican Republic, for better or worse, marked a turning point in western Hemisphere affairs may even influence basic cold war trends. Material for the following dispatch was gathered by a UPI reporting team made up of Martin McReynolds. Roy McGhee and l.efln Daniel in Santo Domingo and Stewart Hensley and Donald H. May in Washington. Intervention put a sudden essary for the United Stales to assert, must occupy a role front and center in the situation. Looking ahead, this country lopes the Dominican crisis will convince the OAS lhal it must reorganize its machinery to deal swiftly wilh Communist-infiltrated rebellions. They believe continuation of the traditional Lalin policy of non-intervention would mean a drift of the OAS inlo oblivion as an ineffectual debating society. Top administration so after Ihe first touch-and-go days of Ihe Dominican operation have sought lo discount the idea that intervention signaled an) major policy change. They call it a special case resulting from the Dominican Republic's history of instability, its lack of democratic traditions and its proximity to Communist C''b,i. They acknowledge that U. S. reaction was swifler and more decisive because of Ihe haunt- ,ng recollection of Fidel Castro's skeover in Cuba and the belated realization of its commu- U.S. realize this confutes "aggression" the same as an assault across national boun- tions, which previously had seemed to be looking up Moscow's troubles with Communist China mounted. Still unanswered is whether this chill will be reflected in tougher Soviet policy in such trouble spots as Viet Nam and Berlin. --The Dominican affair shat tereil a number of cherished il lusions and some comfortable assumptions about ths ability o ;laries and must set up machinery to cope with it. The future of the OAS may depend on whether its member states, each beset with ils own polili cal difficulties and pressure, i; willing lo go lhat far. Meantime, the public dialogue continues over the degree to which the Communists infiltral cd the Dominican Rebellion. The President said categorically on May 2 that control of Ihe revolt had been seized by a "band of Communist conspirators." But by May 2G, Secretary Rusk was saying only that "there was a possibility that extremist elemenls would attempt --were attempting to capitalize on tile anarchy and disorder to seize control." Indications lhal Ihe administration may have felt its case (needed bolstering were seen this week in the President's decision to dispatch a crack team igners--and some American: ell il had nol yet justified its large-scale military intervention [or political purposes. The problems o! working oul a political compromise, once n l :ruce was achieved, proved lo| he ns knoity as Ihose of peacemaking.

Then nist structure. BUT diplomats see a broader aspect to Johnson's flat declaration that that United States would "not tolerate ano'.hcr Communist government in the Western Hemisphere." The President made that statement May 2 when he publicly labeled Ihe Dominican uprising as Communist controlled. The following day he under Domingo to help document Communist participalion in the uprising. SOME diplomats felt the Unil- ed States made a mistake when early May it made public the names of 53 Communists allegedly involved in the revolt It turned out that some weren't wen there. UPI correspondent Martin McReyndds reported from San to Domingo that one of effect he asked U.S. offi cifils: "How can you ssk me to make Communists said to be in the scored his position, which since deal now with the :roup you denounced as Communist-dominated only a few weeks ago?" The American reply was thai the United Slates feels there is no current imminent danger o! a communist takeover in (fie dominican republic. The list ol 53 alleged Communisls has not been menlioned recently by the 'or industrial uses. Operations will be underway y midsummer with an initial employment of 50.
