THURSDAY, NOVEMBER IT, BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREI Argentine Troops Seize Control Of Peron Regime CGT By BRUCE HENDERSON BUENOS AIRES (AP) — Maj. Gen. Pedro Aramburu's new Argentine government, using tank-supported Marine and army troops, last night seized control of the General Confederation of Labor (CGT), backbone of the old Peron regime. NAMED—Andre Louis Dubois, Paris' "Prefect of Silence," has been named resident commissioner general of Morocco. Dubois, 52, is the police head who brought an end to horn-tooting in the French capital. He replaces Gen. Pierre Boyer de Latour in his new post. EGYPT (Continued from Page 1) in answering American and Brit-j H ^ ish protests here at arms peddling, | j us ^ petitions from the workers The government made its surprise move as a fizzling general strike by CGT kept key meat-packing plants closed and hit other important industries. Essential services were unaffected. Simultaneously with the swoop by the troops on CGT headquarters here, police arrested about 100 leaders of the 'rainmen's unions who were preparing to call a railroad strike. F- ; !ure of the railroad workers to join the three-day-old strike was o..e of the main reasons why the walkout had missed its sponsors' goal of paralyzing the nation. Captain Appointed The government appointed Navy Capt .Alberto Patron as interventor (adminstrator) for CGT, which claims six million members. A government decree said all officials of the central organization and its member unions had been removed from their posts. A commission was named to investigate CGT. As a result of the intervention, the government now controls CGT's funds. During the Peron regime the workers generally got full pay while on strike, and employers could not c"smiss them without paying substantial indemnities. Thus intervention could be used as a club to force diehard strikers to give in. The ne» r labor minister. Raul Mi- gone, said in a nationwide broadcast that the old CGT under Peron was "an instrument of force and violence." He said. "We will begin, therefore, to destroy this organism or domination over the workers by intervening in CGT." Migone promised the workers they would get a fair deal if they kept their unions out of politics, was ready to receive JOINS KELLEY'S—James Wallace of Caraway, Ark., has been named assistant manager at Kelley's Shoe Store. Wallace has had 12 years experience in shoe merchandising, having been manager in the Gallen-Kamps chain of sores in recent years. He also was associated with Walster's Shoe Co. of Palo Alto, Calif. He is married to the former Miss Sylvia Nunally of Blytheville.
