KOVEMBKR a, BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PACW Castillo Says Gautemala Staying Middle of Road By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Guatemala's president, Carlos Castillo Armas, says his course is neither to the left nor right but "up." Castillo, thin, dark, intense, 41, and a former army colonel, led the successful revolt last year against ihe regime of President Jacobo Arbenz Guzman. That regime was considered to willing to work it by various ar- can investments. be under the influence of the Com-] rangemenis, one of which forces More Freedoms munists, Castillo took office as a! anyone to yive up land he owns. He returned to an explanation rigid anti-Communist. Reports[ He was asked: "Do you think from Guatemala indicate he has crushed them by driving them out of the country or underground. CRStillo is backed by the U. S. government, which invited him for an official visit and a tour of the country. He arrived two days ago and while here is a guest of the government in the Blair House, opposite the White House. He talked briefly of his government and his ideas as he sat in a Blair House parlor. He spoke English hesitatingly and with tin accent. "Going Up" He was asked: "There have been guesses that ypnr government in right. Is that correct?" Those guesses are wrong, he said, and continued: "My government will not go to the left or right but up. That means it will be government of justice, of what is good for my people and the main interests of Guatemala. There can be no turn- Ing back." For example, he said, under the previous administration there has been a land reform progra ni: Distributing land to farmers. That land, Castillo said, was expropriated by the government. He said his government is not taking land from anyone but is continuing to provide Innd for those that under your government Guatemala has achieved complete democracy?" "Not Complete Democracy" He said he does not think Guatemala lias achieved complete democracy in one year, at least not in the sense that the United States is a complete democracy. He explained what he meant: In the United States a majority of the people are educated and experienced in democratic practices, the economy is on a high level. "Our government in Guatemala," he said, "is democratic, but our population is 3',^ million. of what h« meant by "up." He said: "I was thinking of freedom of the press, social benefits, economic development in Guatemala, an education program." He said there are many shades, of thinking in Guatemala and he' will steer a middle course among thm, using the services of those who can be helpful. "I have friends," he said, "in the Catholic sector. They would like to influence the government. Tiia tis not possible. I am going to keep church and state separate. There will be absolute freedom of reliprion. "There are many Guatemalan people .whose services could be PATRIOTS—This new Belgian stamp honors the Liege Volunteers, \vho helped make Belgium 1 an independent monarchy.

He added: "A democratic soci eiy is not just a political system It is made up of other things which you have here, such as education and good working condi tions." He said his administration working- hard for better education among the people and better in comes and working conditions. While he didn't say so, Castillo no doubt hopes that by his trip through the United States and his speeches here he will build up confidence in Guatemala and h: administration and attract Ameri- fan %uying 'Diamonds, £ook for this Priceless SlemeHt...

Alvin Kershaw, Episcopal Church rector and jazz expert, has taken his 532,000 winnings and passed up a chance for the grand prize on "The $64,000 Question," CBS radio and television show. He says he will use the money —after income taxes — to support settlement of displaced persons in his parish. He also will make a contribution to the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People. The 36-year-old clergyman announced on the program last night that he would keep the 532,000, rather than risk losing it in a try for more, because it was a "resource and opportunity to support many movements in our world — movements laboring and struggling for brotherhood." The Rev. Mr. Kershaw, rector of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Oxford, Obio, won the 532,000 in three steps answering questions in his chosen category of jazz.
