Inter American troops seek Dominican crisis em United Press Internationa! SANTO DOMINGO (UPI) - ks. inter American peacekeeping force, its muscle furnished by U. S. troops, today took over the job of ending the Dominican crisis. An informal cease­ fire was in effect. A Brazilian general. Hugo Panasco Alvim, was named to command the Organization of American States (O.AS) force, the first such in hemispheric history. The U.S. ground commander, Lt.-Gen. Bruce Palmer Jr., was named deputy commander. Reijorts persisted that U.S. mediators were still seeking to persuade Dominican junta leader Maj. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barreras to step down to facilitate the solution of the political crisis, but American officials declined comment. All they would say was that McGeorge Bundy and Cyrus W. Vance, sent here by President Johnson, are still in town. Imbert said Sunday he expected to remain in powder when the civil war. entering its second month, comes to an end. He urged rebel leader Col. Francisco Caamano Deno and his followers, pinned in a corner of the old city, to lay down their arms and surrender. Some Latin Troops O.AS troops, now officially in charge of the peacekeeping here, consisted prmcipally ol U.S. Marines and paratroops but included contingents from five Latin .'\merican nations- Brazil, Costa Rica, Nicaragua.

They also indicate they have reason to believe there will be no further hca\y fighting. Seek Political Solution The primary problem now is to find a political solution to the crisis and the United States is looking to OAS diplomats to help restore a constitutionalist government. The United States would like to see a government with .Antonio Guzman Silvestre as one of its leaders. The rebel commanders are known to be in favor of Guzman but Imbert and the junta leaders have refused to accept him as part of a com- Boy, 11, saves his brothers, sister from fire E.AST LOS A.NGELES (UPI) —Alfredo Mesa, 11. today was credited w i t h saving the lives Administration opens its Taft-Hartley repeal fight Labor Secretary W.

Marcel de Larochellere of the radio patrol squad, narrowly escaped injury. Two other threats sent the bomb squad rushing to other sections of the city in the biggest outbreak of terrorism since the rash of bombings in 1962 that killed one person and maimed another.
