Background Of Peruvian Coup Outlined By Visiting Reporter Editor's Note AP special correspondent William L. Ryan visited Peru less than a month ago when many Peruvians expressed fears of a military takeover of the government. In the following article he gives a step-by-step account of developments leading up to last Wednesday's coup. AP Special Correspondent By William L. Ryan For a month, the Western Hemisphere waited out a tense countdown in Peru. To the last moment the fuse burning more than 30 years might have been removed. It wasn't. The explosion came in a violent clash between yesterday's world and the billowing ferment of today's nuclear age. The thunder from the Andes reverberated through Latin America. It echoed in Washington. It was heard in Moscow and Havana, probably with grim satisfaction. Peru's military, reverting to old Latin habits, voided a popular election and seized the government of Peru. Had democracy lost another important battle in its uphill struggle against entrenched ways of the past? The military said no. It was protecting democracy from a man it hated most, a man it accused of spilling the blood of innocents, of causing the massacre of soldiers and officers. Latin America Watched Latin America watched and wondered. It had seen similar dramas played out many times. It was seeing history repeated in Peru as in Argentina and Brazil a short time before. Could this be a trend, a desperate stand by the military and a wealthy oligarchy to stem a rising tide for reform? In Washington, President Kennedy's administration expressed dismay. Its hopeful Alliance for Progress, born 16 months before in an attempt to lead Latin America into the mid-20th century and fight off the hungry claws of Communism, had suffered a blow. Peru's troubles, like many of her neighbors', date all the way back to the Spanish empire. For Peru, this latest chapter in a 400-year-old story began about 40 years ago. Victor Raul Haya de la Torre, a young Oxford graduate, organized a fiery, extreme campaign in Peru. Of Spanish blood, he proclaimed himself champion of the Impoverished, illiterate Indians making up half Peru's population. His main targets were the Roman Catholic Church and the reigning dictatorship of the day. He was arrested and exiled. Since then, he has spent 30 of his last 37 years in exile, asylum or prison. Went To Mexico Haya went to Mexico, then undergoing its own revolution, Sunday, The Palladium -Item ANU fUN-1 KI.MiRAM RICHMOND, IND. Fire On Main Fire of an undetermined origin did damage estimated at $1,000 to the business building at 716 East Main street Sunday night. The fire was discovered after a passerby noticed smoke. The blaze originated under a sink in the unused third floor of the building which houses the Merit Shoe stdre and Wheeler's restaurant. The flames burned through a door and spread into a wall and under a floor. Some water damage was done from a pipe that broke during the action. Gives Opinion Edwin Steers, jr., member of the state election board, has informed local -officials that the county election board is authorized to conduct a special election at the time of the November election to determine members of boards of the four new school districts; that nominations for members of these boards shall be made by petition signed by the candidate and 10 registered voters; that nominations must be filed by Sept. 1 and all general election laws fully complied with. The four reorganized school districts are the Richmond Community schools, Northeastern Wayne schools. Nettle Creek schools and Centerville-Abington Community schools. No Need Here No aged person in need of medical attention is known to the Wayne County Welfare department, said W. W. Reller, local attorney, in an address opposing Kennedy's medical care program before the Rotary club here last week. The local Welfare department has about 65 persons in nursing homes, he told. The problems of the aged and their medicare are of real concern to all of us and it is unfortunate that those in high places are using it to gain political advantage, said Reller. To Fort Knox Seven Wayne county men sent from two local draft boards have been inducted into the army at Fort Knox, Ky. They include James Koons, Frederick Abbott, jr., Gary Mathews, Franklin D. Lane, Thomas Hodgin, Ralph Turner and Perry Myers. mixed with leftist intellectuals I and founded his American Popular Revolutionary Alliance APRA with the idea of making it a continentwide fountainhead of revolt. In 1926, Haya went to the Soviet Union, was exposed to Communist indoctrination. But a year after his return, he publicly denounced communism, arguing instead for radical reforms in his own country. In 1931, he ran for the presidency under the APRA banner. He lost Peru's first free, democratic elections to a military man, Col. Luis Sanchez Cerro. Claiming they were defrauded, Haya and his brother Augustin began plotting against Sanchez Cerro. As a result, Haya went to jail and was kept there 15 months. But his brother Augustin carried on. Barracks Stormed Under Augustin, the Apristas, armed with stolen weapons, stormed the army barracks at Trujillo, 300 miles north of Lima. They captured dozens of soldiers, army officers and civilians, herding them into a Trujillo prison. Army reinforcements were rushed from Lima, and soon the tide of battle began to turn against the Apristas in bloody roof-to-roof, street-to-street fighting. A frantic lieutenant phoned Augustin at his headquarters and asked what should be done with the prisoners. "Kill them," was the reply history attributes to Augustin Haya. Apristas made their way to the roof of the prison, stuck their rifles and machine guns through the skylight and turned murderous fire on the captives. Not a prisoner escaped the massacre. The army never forgot, never forgave. In 1948, Manuel Odria, then an army colonel, overthrew the government of President Jose Luis Bustamente and became dictator. He outlawed the APRA. Went To Asy lum Haya went into asylum in the Colombian Embassy and remained there five years. All that time Odria kept the embassy surrounded by army troops to guard against Haya's escape. Once again, in April 1954, Haya went abroad into exile.v Gen. Odria had been elected president in 1950 by simple expedient of keeping his opponent in jail. The dictator, under pressure from all sides, agreed in 1956 to step aside for elections. The result was the election of Manuel Prado. In return for the support APRA had given Prado in the election, the president made it legal again. Haya returned in early 1961 to campaign for election to the presidency, to an enormously emotional welcome from his followers. July 22, 1962, The Palladium-Item Wire Stolen Copper wire, valued at an estimated $234 and weighing more than 800 pounds, was missing Thursday from the fenced-in area of the Richmond Power and Light company near the Main street bridge. The loot included four rolls of new wire and about 700 pounds of scrap. Officers Named Three Richmond women were named to the executive board of the National Federation of the Virginia Asher Business Women's Bible Councils during the annual conference held at Earlham college this past week. Mary Helen Miller, Helen Hance and Ruby Spang-ler were elected to offices. Grace Woodhurst was named a member of the 1963 nominating committee. A total of 175 members from 13 councils registered for the conference.

Avco Still Hiring Employment at the ordnance operation of the Richmond Avco corporation has risen 156 per cent, from 1,278 to 3,275, in the year ending June 30, 1962 bringing the highest employment level in eight years. There are still many openings for skilled workers. The plant designs, develops and produces classified ammunition and' arming and fuzing devices for missiles, includes the Polaris missile for the U.S. navy. Honor Board Head T. Russell Crabb, Wayne county chairman of the Selective Service board, was awarded a certificate of appreciation and a pin Monday for 20 years of service by Col. Robert Custer, state director. Col. Custer said there have been only about 15 of the 20-year certificates given in Indiana. Others on the local board are James B. Davison, one year; Andrew Cecere, nine years; Louis Wahl, 11 years, and Victor Frisch, nine years. His main rivals would be Gen. Odria and Fernando Belaunde-Terry. Lost Election Now come the paradoxes. Be- Iaunde, 48, an architect considered a moderate leftist, had lost the election in 1956 to Prado. He took support this time from any place he could get it. The miltary seemed to favor him. But he had several Communists and Castroists on his congressional slate and did not reject their help. Odria, 66, had been responsible during his reign for Communist infiltration of the labor movement. He had permitted it, to keep them off his own back. He too, had Communist candidates on his congressional ticket and did "not reject their support. Only Haya campaigned openly against Communists as a danger to the whole hemisphere, urged a welcome for U.S. capital, pleaded for widespread land and other reforms. But hte military opposed Haya on the ground that he threatened to bring communism to Peru. The military remembered the Trujillo ma'ssacre. Haya Leader None of the leading candidates in a field of seven rolled up the necessary third of all the votes required by the constitution for eleciton. Haya was the leader, and hajd won a good-sized bloc of the seats in the new Congress, which, under the law. now would have to decide the presidency. Haya made a deal to throw the presidency to Gen. Odria in the Congress, with the Apristas taking Federal Loan Is Approved To Expand Company INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A $577,- 118 federal loan has been approved to expand the fire-swept Borden Cabinet Company at Borden, the Small Business Administration said Saturday. The factory, which is the only industry in the small Clark County town, is currently being rebuilt after two fires leveled it this spring. The second blaze came last month after construction had already begun again. The Small Business Administration said the loan from the Area Redevelopment Administration was one of the first for expansion of existing industry processed by the two federal agencies. The funds will allow the firm to build a bigger plant and create more jobs in the community. The factory is expected to be reopened this autumn, other offices.

Perhaps it refused to stand still for any power in Aprista hands. The military cried voting fraud, didn't prove it. President Prado, 73, an aristocratic banker-businessman, refused to sanction annulment of the result. Last Wednesday, the military moved. It's tanks surounded the palace. Soldiers arrested Presi dent Pardo and carted him into custody off Callao. Troops occu pied the handsome marble palace in the Spanish-colonial Plaza de Armas. Other soldiers occupied Aprista headquarters. Torre Vanished Haya de la Torre, 67, vanished, perhaps to a Latin-American em bassy, once again in hiding from vengeful officers. Latin America had a new dic tatorship. Its leaders begged for recognition from the United States. The military junta presi dent, Ricardo Perez Godoy, said the generals moved only to "pre serve democracy and have stability and tranquility." But all sides in Latin America invariably claim to champion the cause of democracy, retaining their own defini tions of the word. Angry, the Kennedy administra- iton suspended diplomatic rela tions and the Alliance for Prog ress economic aid. Half a dozen nations cut relations. In Lima, under the guns of the vigilant soldiers, people prudently kept their grumbling to them selves. Only a relatively few of the more daring took to the streets sporadically.

Only a kitchen and front porch have been added. CAMDEN, Ohio. The birth place of Camden's most famous native, Sherwood Anderson, at 142 South Lafayette street, has been purchased by the Camden Progressive Club, Inc., it has been announced by John Gray, president of the club. Anderson was a writer of numerous novels. The house will, in the near fu ture, be restored to its original state and marked as a shrine to one of the nation's great authors of fiction. Anderson was born in the one- story frame .dwelling Sept. 13, 1876, the son of Irwin M. and Emma Smith Anderson. He was the third of six children. His fa ther, a Civil War veteran, settled in nearby Morning Sun, where he was married and attended the Hopewell church. He was a har ness maker. In 1875, he moved to Camden and conducted a harness business in the building at 25 North Main street, now occupied by Herbert Wagers, attorney. The Andersons moved to Independence, Ohio, in September, 1877, when Sherwood Anderson was only one year old. Later, the family moved to Caledonia and then to Clyde where they resided through 1900. Five Other Children The five other Anderson children were Karl, Stella, Earl, Ray and Irwin, jr. Their mother died May 10, 1895, at the age of 42.

On May 23, 1919, the elder Anderson died at the Soldiers' home in Dayton. Sherwood Anderson broke into the literary world in 1916, when he wrote the novel "Windy Mc-Pherson's Son," which is said to be a fictitious story about his father. This novel was followed by "Marching Men" in 1917 and "Mid-American Chant" in 1918. In 1919 he wrote "Winesburg, Ohio," which became his best seller. During his life, he wrote a total of 26 novels, 292 articles in periodicals, six dramas and a number of essays. "Tar," written in 1926, is the only book written about Camden, and this was fiction as were all of his novels. The greater part of Anderson's life as a writer was spent , in Chicago. He devoted much time to young authors, especially when he lived in New Orleans for a few years during the 1920's. It is reported he published a magazine there in order that young writers could have their stories published. In that capacity, he created many followers who also became authors, such as Hemingway, Menchen, Dryer, Woltz, Sand burg and Van Doren. Anderson made only one visit to Camden, and that was in 1934.

However, he later said he was impressed with Camden and was glad he made the visit.' While on a trip to South America in 1941 with Mrs. Anderson, he became ill aboard ship after swallowing a piece of toothpick. The illness led to his death in Colon, Canal Zone, Mar. 6 of that year. He was on a literary mission for the government. Camden often is visited by peo ple wishing to see the author's birthplace.
