The rebel broadcast said it had been learned that the fugitive president is aboard a vessel named the Humaita. flee ihe country by air, the newspaper said. There was speculation that he had gone to Paraguay. A junta of generals took command of the government as a cli- maX to the four-day revolt that overthrew Peron. They quickly announced peace talks with the rebel forces. The generals also moved rapidly to tighten their control on Buenos Aires after rebel reports that the six-million-member General Federation of Labor — the backbone of Peron's popular support — Is planning a general strike. With such a strike Argentine labor returned Peron to power in 1945 after a military clique had jailed him. The rebel radio at Bahia Blanca. 325 miles southwest of Buenos Aires, said the CGT "is preparing secretly, under the inspiration of Peron, a general revolutionary strike for dawn to restore the tyrant, betraying all pledges." No Work Today The state radio soon after said there would be "no work" in the capital today, but several hours later a broadcast communique from the junta called on the workers to remain calm and resume work.

France Elects to Oust Sultan of Morocco PARIS (AP) — France today officially .resolved to remove the Sultan of Morocco and replace him vvith a three-man regency for an indefinite period of governmental reform. In a stormy, three-hour meeting f the French Cabinet authorized Premier Edgar Faure and his minister for Moroccan nnd Tunisian affairs, Pierre July, to name the three regents. This decision was taken when the French nominee. Gen. Mohammed Si Kittani Ben Hammon, formally refused a post as regent. Both Faure and July told newsmen they would make their choice 01 regents today and include this in detailed instructions to the French resident General, Pierre Boyer de Latour du Moulin. Ends Debate The cabinet's decision to allow Faure and July to pick the regents ended days of debate within the French government itself, and between French and Moroccan lead- ei s, on the choice of the third regent. Both sides had earlier agreed that two of them would be the former Pasha of Sefrou, Si Bekkal, an independent nationalist, and El Mokri, grand vizier or prime minister of Morocco. Under Fnure's plan the three regents are to Install a new government of national union, including representatives of the principal nationalist movements.

"Serious Readjustments" "But you can write this on the back of your order books now — farm prices and farm incomes are going to be higher in the years ahead than they are today."
