U.S. On Spot Over Nuclear Testing INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Merriman Smith, White House correspondent for United Press International, said today that .the American people should be prepared for a "tremendous world "outcry'.' when the United States resumes atmospheric nuclear testing. Smith spoke at the Hoosier State Press Association's 28th annual convention. "It is the nature of a great many people in the world today, largely due to fear or ignorance, to accept something from the Soviets without much complaint but to. scream bloody murder to us for doing, essentially the same thing," Smith said. "When we resume testing this is going to produce a tremendous world outcry against the United States. The people should be prepared for this." "If atmospheric testing is necessary. President Kennedy has to undertake it with no thought whatever of a world popularity contest. We are not considering test resumption as a matter of making friends. It is being done because our military people and scientists feel that the Russian atomic progress has been such that we must resort to testing to prevent a situation developing whereby the Soviets have the balance of thermonuclear power we now have." Smith said Kennedy "reluctantly seems to have come to almost the same idea that Dwight D. Eisenhower had, that if there is much of a chance to ease the cold war tension, the United States can do business only with one man, and that's Khrushchev." "In the wake of the Geneva nuclear test ban talks, Kennedy finds himself in an unfortunately classic position. The British prime minister, facing elections in his own country, feels the need for a summit meeting to demonstrate his active role in world affairs. "Khrushchev likes doing business this way because a summit demonstrates to his own people and his own officials that he pretty well brought it about as a peace gesture. President DeGaulle of France does not like the idea. He's seen too many of these and virtually . nothing comes out of them to benefit,France.

BELNAP United Press International BUENOS AIRES (UPI) — Four generals who held high posts under President Arturo Frondizi were under arrest early today, apparently because they opposed the coup that dusted Frondizi in favor of Jose M. Guido. A war ministry announcement identified the prisoners as former War Secretary Rosendo Fraga; his undersecretary. Carlos Peralta; former 1st Division commander Edgar Landa and Maj. Gen. Juan C. Cordini. Unofficial sources said eight other generals also had been arrested, but the report could not be confirmed immediately. No reason was given for the arrests, but observers assumed that the generals had differed in some degrees -with the architects of Thursday's, military coup. Guido, who ironed out his differences with armed forces leaders at an all-night conference which ended early. today; was to be formally installed as provisional president at noon.. He spent the night in Casa Rosada. the Argentine "White House," where the inaugural ceremonies will be held! JSuido, as Senate president pro tern, was first, in line' for the presidency -because Argentina has no vice president. He was sworn, in Thursday by the supreme court, but military leaders protested that the action was premature. There was no official announcement on the decisions made at the conference which reconciled the armed forces to Guido"s inauguration, but it was reported that he: —Signed a pledge, that his government would outlaw- Peron- ism in Argentina. —Promised to continue federal control of the five ^provinces where Peronist election victories were nullified by ' the Frondizi regime. Unconfirmed reports said the Guido government probably will take over the other five provinces that elected Peronist governors March 18. —Guaranteed' revision of the Frondizi-fostered "law of professional associations." which strengthened the Peronist position among Argentina's' unions. The' provisional president also was believed to have discussed the formation of a new government with the armed forces chiefs. Governors or ex-governors of 14 provinces assailed the ouster of Frondizi early today . and announced that they would work to secure his release and return to power. Frondizi. was confined by the military on Martin Garcia Island.
