MONDAY, JULY 7, 19-17 Peron Proposes Middle Ground Argentine Offers To Aid Distressed Nations'of World 1WENO3 AIRES, July 1. (UP) — Argentina's resources were pledged »y President Juan E. Peron today to aid the spiritual and economic rehabilitation of all sintering nations, particularly in Euro)*. Peron \ n n nalional broadcast last night, urged economic aid to distiKsscd countries, spiritual rtis- > armament and establishment of an ffrcndurine ,, Ci , ce though "creation of a world conscience which puts nien above systems of ideology." His speech, widely heralded in advance, dealt only in generalities. He did not. as some had expected, make a concrete proposal that Argentina lead in forming a "third group" of nations allied neither to the United States nor Russia. He did urge "eradication of capitalistic and totalitarian cxtremis'ii whether of the right or left."
