Newsman reports on visit to Caamanos headquarters By JACK V. FOX United Press international SANTO DOMINGO (UPI)-It is an unusual sensation to march through the rebel section of this city with a mob brandishing rifles and submachine guns chanting "Yankee get out of Santo Domingo." Armed rebels looked at me suspiciously because I was not chanting. Like dozens of other newsmen and photographers, we had around me shouted at his every sentence. We then went down another street, the mob swelling by the moment. A woman ran out with a little girl of about 5 for a kiss from ill Presidente. Caamano obliged and the little girl giggled. An old woman watched from a doorway. She was not cheering or smiling — just looking. She appeared to be over 70. In this land of violence she had driven into the rebel zone. In 1 seen revolutions and theu: lead- our white Volkswagen werelers come and go. Martin McReynolds, UPI Caribbean correspondent; Hugo Wessels, UPI photographer; Dominican driver Lionel Silfa and myself. As we drove up to the rebel headquarters in an isolated pocket of the city, Col. Francisco Caamano Deno and his right hand man. Hector Aristy, emerged. They were surrounded by Caamano's bodyguards. Nears Pink Sportshirt One was a kid not more than 17 in a pink sportshirt with a burp gun in his hand. Another looked like a German in a jungle camouflage uniform and helmet. The other wore a fatigue type uniform. El Presidente (rebel version) had decided to pay a call on the wounded in a nearby Catholic hospital and to take a trium phal stroll through the bullet pocked street, bucking up the populace. Aristy motioned us to come along. Caamano is a pleasant looking man with an assured man ner. He was dressed in a khaki shirt and trousers. Two ball point pens jutted from his breast pocket. A pistol was bolstered on his hip. He wore no decorations and no bars or insignia indicating his rank. In the hospital Caamano bent over the beds of the wounded rebels, held their hands and spoke softly to them. McReynolds whispered to me a translation of what he was saying: "We'are proud of you. We shall not fail." Caamano spoke to perhaps a dozen men and then went back into the street. Walking doun the center of the street, people began to recognize him. From the balconies of tenement apartments men and women broke into ap plause and shouted "Viva Caamano." At each street comer the procession picked up more marchers, scores of them with guns and all civilians. We marched up to indcpcnd ence park in the heart of the rebel sector. There Caamano made a brief speech to perhaps 300 persons who swarmed around him. He said the rebels would never give up; they would not retreat one inch. The people Chanting Starts The last two blocks of the procession to Caamano's "command post" marked the beginning of the chanting. I have heard similar shouting at leftist gatherings in Harlem, but not with the added presence of wrought Up teen-agers with burp guns. It would have been impossible for me to have gotten away. I was by then far from Caamano with his disciplined bodyguard and Hector Aristy who had invited us to come. Caamano entered his head­ quarters and there I stood with my red Irish face and golf shirt among this chanting mob whose dislike of Yankees flashed through my mind. McReynolds, Wessels and Lionel Silfa, one of the top athletes of 'the Dominican Republic, were not to be seen. There were cold stares at me from the crowd but no one harmed me, pushed me or did anything. Unusual Day / I sauntered up to a man carrying a medical bag whom I presumed was a doctor and asked: "How do I get to the RCA cables building?" He stared at me and in perfect English said, "I do not speak English." Minutes later, Silfa appeared and we walked back to our Volkswagen. It was an unusual day. The U.S. 82nd Airborne Division military band marched through a corridor playing the Marine hymn, "From the Halls of Montezuma." while street urchins screamed "Yankee go home" and threw rocks.

Judge Y^oger tells story of bride vanishing at sea WILMINGTON (UPI) -Superior Judge Thomas Y'ager, 47, told a Coast Guard hearing Thursday the events of the day his 61 - year - old bride of four days vanished at sea and presumably drowned. OUE ANCESTORS byQuincy However, Yager was imable to say whether seasickness or any other illness led to her disappearance from the bridge of their chartered 36 - foot cabin cruiser "Care-free" in the Catalina Channel. In a Coast Guard hearing room crowded with some 20 photographers and reporters. Yager detailed point - by-point events he could recall of May 6, the day Eileen Jeffers Y'ager disappeared. He described—as he had told police earlier — the frantic search for his heiress wife after he discovered she was not aboard the ship, and the failure of the radio to work when he tried to make "many, many" dist:-ess calls. Senior Coast Guard hearing officer Lt. Cmdr. Herbert L.

Y'ager, the sole witness, was asked whetlier his wife — who inherited $500,000 from her adopted father, Edward Jeffers, former head of the Union Pacific Railroad — had ever suffered from a heart condition or had an •electrocardiogram. "Not that I recall," Uie judge replied. "Do you know of your wife •taking any medication during the whole trip?" Johnson asked the witness. Yager said he did recall she told him about taking some anti- seasickness pills during the honeymoon cruise from Newport Beach to Calalina Island last week. The judge said that about .45 minutes to an hour after they left Avalon Harbor, he asked his wife to take tlie ship's wheel. He said he went below for about 10 minutes (police previously quoted him as saying "less than a half - hour") to go to the bathroom. When he returned to the bridge, liis wife was gone. Earlier this week. Yager told newsmen the couple platmed to set up a charitable foundation. He stressed Uiat he intended to carry out the plan and vowed he wo u Id not use any funds from his wife's estate. (Continued from Page 1) ers. Sens. Robert Kennedy of New York and Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, walked behind them towards the temporary grandstand. There Mrs. Kennedy shook hands with the archbishop of Canterbury and with the three speakers. Prime Minister Harold Wilson, Former Prime Minister Harold Macmillan and Secretary of State Dean Husk. Pauses Before Monument After an Irish Guard band played a number of marches, the Queen paused for a long moment before the monument which is inscribed: "This acre of English ground was given to the United States of America by people of Britain in memory of John F. Kennedy, bom 29 May 1917, President of the United States 196163, died by an assassin's hands 22 November 1963." Beneath this is Kennedy's credo from his inaugural address. The Queen went to her place and read slowly from her speech which told of the grief of the British at the dark deed in Dallas, Tex. Kennedy, she said, had brought new hope not only to Americans but to all .America's friends." "Nowhere was this more true than here in these islands," she said. "With all their hearts my people shared his triumphs, grieved at his reverses and wept at his death." She spoke of the President's ties with Britain. Rusk accepted the memorial for the United States. His speech at one point was almost drowned out by the noise of a big jet airliner disturbing what he called "this quiet and lovely Runnymede." Rusk, in his speech, said he accepted the land "with the joy and the sadness which shall forever mark those of us who served with John Fitzgerald Kennedy ... We shall cherish this memorial to a President who shall be forever young." He said the memorial was a symbol that the British and American people are united in a "common dedication to the cause of human liberty." The memorial rests on a meadowed acre of land on the Thames given in perpetuity to the United Slates. It is set on a seven-ton block of Portland stone on a granite plintli, a paved terrace and, at the end of the terrace, two symbolic stone seats for contemplation. It bears a portion of Kennedy's 1961 inaugural address, words which were to become tragically prophetic: "Let every nation know that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, support any friend or oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty." The mid - afternoon cere^ mony was to be followed by less emotional moments for tiie Kennedy family. The late Presi dent's brothers were to accom. pany Mrs. Kennedy and the children to Windsor Castle for tea with the Queen, Prince Philip and members of the royal family. A $2.8 million Kennedy me^ morial fund was set up along with the monument as a "living" part of the remembrance: Kennedy scholarships. Students from Britain will be sent to Harvard or Radcliffe universities or the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Th first scholarships will be awarded for the academic year of 1966-67. Red China's second "A" success underlines problems facing U.S. By STEWART HENSLEY United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — Red China's second atomic success underlined today both the short-term and long-range problems facing the United States and its allies as a result of Peking's continued progress in this field. U.S. officials acknowledged that the new Chinese explosion was bound to have an immediate effect on efforts to achieve a peacefid settlement in Viet Nam as well as wider ramifications on the East-West conflict and disarmament program. The United States is expected to move quickly to reassure Ihe non-Communist nations of Asia that it is prepared to defend them against any nuclear threat from Bed China. At the same time, the Johnson administration undoubtedly will seek to minimize allies' fears by asserting that it will be a number of years before Peking can have an effective delivery system and stockpile of atomic weapons. These were the major points made by U.S. officials in their reaction to Red China's fkst nuclear explosion on Oct. 16. Could Be Significant Offieals acknowledged, however, that the psychological effects o£ Red China's continued success in atomic testing was bound to be felt in the near future and could be of some significance. Some authorities said it may very well delay the begiiming of sincere negotiations to try to achieve a political solution, of the Viet Nam confUct. Peking has opposed start of peace talks unless the United States agrees to stop bombing North Viet Nam and pull its forces out of South Viet Nam. The Chmese success may— for the time bemg, at least- halt any inclinations which the North Vietnamese may have had to lessen their military activities and seek peace discussions. It also undoubtedly will reinforce the conviction of Cambo dia's Prince Sihanouk and other neutralists in the area that Red China' eventually is gomg to win in Southeast Asia. Principal Problem This has been one of the principal problems the United States has faced in seeking to mobilize more Asian support for its demand that the Communists stop their aggression against South Viet Nam. President Johnson's speech Thursday was widely interpreted as an effort to drive a wedge between North Viet Nam and China by convincing the Vietnamese Reds that Peking sought only to use them as a tool in its broader program of Southeast Asian conquest. Some administration officials have expressed belief that' North Viet Nam, still under repeated U.S. air attacks, eventually will listen to Russian rather than to Chinese advisers and come to terms. However, China's second atomic success will tend to strengthen the hands of the pro-Chmese elements in Hanoi. U.S. officials were alerted two days ago to the imminence of the second Chinese explosion. But there have been so many "alerts" during the past couple of months that they did not make any public announcement. Forecast Test As early as March 1, U.S. officials had reported that intelligence showed Peking was ca pable of exploding a second atomic device at any time. One theory had been that Peking was awaiting a moment when it could garner major and a delivery system capable of making her a real nuclear threat. Some American officials have mentioned five to seven years as the length of time it would take Peking to achieve a sophisticated delivery system and become a first-line nuclear power. British More Accurate But the British, v;ho have been more accrale than the Americans in forecasting Chi- oese atomic progress, believe the military nuclear threat from Pekmg may be less than five years away. The British point out that Red China will be an atomic military peril to Asia long before she is able to develop intercontinental missies lo pose a direct threat to the United States or Europe.

By PHIL NEWSOM A sad fact of the present United States position in the Dominican Republic is that it was open to damnation either way. Whether it pressed the panic button too quickly is a matter lhat now will never be settled. Whether the Marmes prevented a slaughter of American and other foreign residents or whether they prevented a Communist take-over also are ques lions open to debate. Not open to debate is the fact that had either of the two above - mentioned possibilities occurred, the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson never would have lived it down. Few Arguments Only a President De Gaulle ar a Communist nation would argue that tiie United States could take a chance on the establishment of another Cuba within the perimeter of the Caribbean Sea. Y'et there are other elements which are open to debate or :riticism. Of the latter it may be said lhat United States foreign policy loo often has been based upon hope latlier than firm reality. In the American hemisphere, for example, U.S. policy has been based upon cooperation withttlie Organization of American States (OAS). Hemispheric Effort The OAS has been described as the world's oldest and most successful international body. Dating from the old Pan-American Union, it represents 75 years of effort to weld the American Hemisphere into an 2conomic and defensive unit. And it has had successes. Its charter of human rights and its hemispheric defense concepts antedate either the United Nations or NATO. It has headed off conflicts between Costa Rica and Nicaragua and Ecuador and Peru. More recently it helped to set- Lie a dispute between the Unit- 2d States and Panama. The Treaty of Rio provided thai an attack upon one American nation would be an attack upon all. The doctrine of Caracas proclaimed that international communism is incompatible with the concept of American freedom. But within the OAS there is a conflict of ideals that has been its weakness. The one proclaims the O.AS keystone wliieh is non-mterven- tion in the affairs of American States. The other is the declaration against a take-over by international communism but makes no provision for meeting infiltration and subversion. The over-all effect is an indecision which, in the case of Cuba, was overcome only under the threat of Russian nuclear rockets. In the Dominican revolt, the United States acted with foreknowledge of this particular paralysis. But it aroused the ire 3f the Latm states both because they were not consulted and because the action aroused the old bugaboo of U.S. gunboat diplomacy. Belated U.S. attempts to soothe Latin American sensibilities and to place the intervention in the Dominican Republic under the flag of the OAS have done little to help. For the inter-American force proposed to restore stability to the Dominican Republic have come only two firm offers—one from tiny Costa Rica and another from equally tiny Honduras. atomic peril to Southeast Asia. American assurances that U.S. military might is available to protect these Southeast Asian countries are designed to try to quiet their fears. Psychological warfare experts are lery doubtful, however, that U.S. assurances will entirely achieve this effect. Will Force Decision China's nuclear progress eventually will force a major decision by Russia and the United States, both of whom have been pledged since August, 1963, not to conduct atomic or nuclear tests in the atmosphere. If Russia and the United States get worried about the necessity for further atmospheric testing to meet the Chinese challenge, it could shatter the test ban treaty. Another complicating factor in the long-range picture is French President Charles de Gaulle's determination to continue with his own independent nuclear program. He is moving the French experimental site to Ihe area of Tahiti in the South Pacific and plans to continue development and testing there. There are at least 21 other countries having the know-how to produce nuclear weapons if they wish to spend the vast amount of money and resources neccary. The United States and Russia share the cnminon fear lhat some of the those countries may decide to embark on their own program unless means can be found to disuade China and France from continuing their effort. Nobody has any idea how this can be done.

FOOTLOOSE AND FANCY FREEWAY— A large problem over at the "How to Stuff a Wild Binini" set. .Annette Funicella, four months pregnant, looks very pregnant. And they still had her binkini scenes to shoot. Well, they eliminated them, of course, and wrote in a few scenes where she could be sitting down, fully clothed. Sic Semper Pregnantus. Everybody talks about "t h e new Hollywood," where the old- time cigar-chewing, girl-chasing producer is not wanted. Is there really a "new" Hollywood? Or is it just a figment of the Cham ber of Commerce? "Hollywood can still be corrupt," says young star Alex Cord. "There are still many girls who get parts by being cozy with producers. "I'm not being a gossip, I'm speaking of what I know for a fact. And it bothers me—not because I'm a prude, but because it can adversely affect a picture. Let the producer have as many girls as he wants, but keep them out of the pictures." I've heard this refrain countless times, in different phrases. The star of an adventure film, currently before the cameras, complained bitterly to me that the movie was being ruined be cause the leadmg lady was cast only because she was a "friend" of the producer. A leading character actor, in tired tones, spoke of how a television show was spoiled because of a similar situation. New Hollywood? Bah, humbug. I watched a watusi .scene at the "Marriage on the Rocks" set. They had built a kind of Whiskey a Go Go replica, and Frank Sinatra and his daughter, Nancy (who was playing his daughter) were watching as Davey Davison danced in the cage. It was a wild dance. "No wonder she's in a cage," Sinatra said, in character. Davey had mad make-up—her eyelashes were spangled with sequins. After the shot, I asked her how it felt. "I keep falhng asleep," she said. "Those silly sequins make by eyeUds so heavy they keep closing. It sure beats sleeping pills." At Peyton Place, Mia Far row's dressing room was a pretty drab spot, with dull, paint- peeling walls. She made a routine request that it be repainted, and the studio agreed. But nothing happened. Months went by. Then Mia spotted some pamters working on a new set. She borrowed a bucket of blue paint and a brush and, between scenes, repainted her dressing room herself. Now, if she could only rewrite scripts—.
