rum TWO (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 199» U.S. May Gran) Asylum to Czech Vladimir Houdek, Refuge* Diplomat, Asks American Home By JOHN" M. HIOHTOWKR WASHINGTON. June l.,WJ — Responsible officials predicted lo- day that the American government will grant political asylum to Vlncil- mtr Houdck, rtfugee diplomat irom Communist Czechoslovakia. Informants said a decision to that effect had been tentatively worked out by the Stale and Justice Departments. The case has caused considerable difficulties because the government has evidence that Houdek Is a Communist of long standing. He asked for asylum M.iy 16, after resigning as Czechoslovakia's chief delegate to the United Nations and blasting Russia for pressuring his homeland. Law Hars Communists American law bars alien Communists from taking up residence in this country except in cases where the attorney general exercises discretionary power to permit a Communist (o settle here. Authorities said no such case involving a political refugee had arisen In tlie post-war years until Houdek catno forth. . • ' , ' Houdek had been the No. 1 Czech in the U.N. since March 1848. He took over the position from John Papanek who had represented Czechoslovakia until the Communist seized complete control of the country. : Houdck Denounced At the time Houdek resigned he was attacked by Papanek who said that Houdek had been recalled by the Communist regime he server! in order to be purged. Papanek charged Houdek was resigning because he knew he would be arrested if he went home. Houdek was known as a protege of Vladimir dementis, who wns ousted March 14 as the Czech foreign minister and since has dropped from sight. In considering Houdek's case American officials have been torn between the fact that , he was Communist and the fact that the United Stales traditionally admits political refugees to asylum in this country. , Officials Impressed American officials apparently were Impressed by Houdek's publli protest against the condition ii whlcri he said the Soviets have : placed his country. As a matter ot policy, the United States has concentrated Its pres sures In the cold war-not so mud against Communist, as an Ideology as against Communism as an In strument for the expansion of Rus elan power. Thus this country fine the other Western powers .have'co operated.
