Pierson, Iowa. Ail four were among the guests at a stag dinner given by President Elsenhower at the White House Monday night. Many Democrats have criticized the vice president, the most active GOP campaigner in the weeks before the November elections, on the ground that he sought to indict Democrats generally for i softness toward communism. Nixon has declined to comment on this criticism. Eisenhower praised Nixon's efforts during the campaign, and GOP National Chairman Leonard W. Hall said in a statement Monday night there was in progress "a highly organized campaign to besmirch" the vice president.

COSTA RICA (Continued from Page 1) volved in (he uprising, although the army chief of staff earlier had estimated the attacking force at 75 to 100. A communique said government troops, hastily sent to the scene when the revolt broke yesterday, were dug In near the town after "consolidating their positions and setting up communications." The 21-nation Organization of American States ordered a five- nation commission to fly here today to investigate. Costa Elca blamed neighboring Nicaragua for the uprising, a charge denied by the Nicaraguan government. Col. Bodolfo Quiros, Costa Rican chief of staff, announced last night that two government soldiers were wounded in an initial clash with the rebels, who he said also seized several villages in the Villa Quesada area. Took Over Office A general staff bulletin said refugees from the area reported that the revolt broke out shortly after a two-motored plane with no lights or visible identification flew over Villa Quesada. A group of about 40 men drove Into the town in a truck and a station wagon and took over the mayor's office. The report said the men came from the north, the direction of the Nicaraguan border. Villa Quesada is about 40 miles from the Nicaraguan frontier and has a population of about 3,500. Climaxing a long quarrel between the two Central American neighbors, Costa Rica accused Nicaragua of "direct aggression." In a message to the GAS Council, the San Jose government said it expects to receive military aid from the other American states "to repel the forces of invasion." Costa Rica's only military force is its 1,200-man civil guard, a kind of citizen's militia with a reserve estimated at 40,00 to 5,000 men. Nicaragua promptly described the charges as "foolish" and denied that the attacking force had come from its territory. "The bold accusations "by the Costa Rican government," the statement said, "correspond to the well-known tactics used by unpopular chiefs of state, who try to stir up public opinion in their favor by terming as invasion a rebel up- •-•-'rior | n tho heart of their own country, In which their nationals exclusively participate." Commission Named The OAS named a commission composed of representatives of the United States. Brazil. Mexico, Ecuador and Paraguay to visit Nationalists Claim Good Bomber Results TAIPEH, Formosa (/Pj—Nationalist China's air force headquarters said !te four-engine bombers had "excellent results" in a three- wave attack on Communist-held Toumen and Tienao island*. The Nationalist* said all planes returned to Formosa, 200 miles south of the islands, despite antiaircraft fire and Red air force fighters. This was the third straight day's strike against Tienao, which is almost next door to the Nationalists' Tachens, which were attacked, by 100 Red planes Monday. both Cosfa Rfca and Nicaragua. They were due in San Jose tonight. The chief of staff charged the real leaders of the revolt were former Presidents Teodoro Plcado, ousted in 1948 by a revolt led by Figueres, and Raphael Calderon Ouardia, Picado's predecessor. Quiros said a clandestine radio station had been heard "inciting the people to revolt and sabotage" but the rest of the country remaine quiet. The chief of staff said an observation plane sent over Villa Quesada machine-gunned a group of men trying to repair the town's small airport and returned bearing bullet holes. The pilot of the craft reported scattered rifle and small arms fire near the town, Quiros added. (At United Nations headquarters in New York, Costa Rican Delegate Benjamin Nunez said after a telephone talk with Figuer- es that his government had broken diplomatic relations with Nicaragua. Nunez said "enemy forces' had crossed the border from Nicaragua and a battle was presumed in progress.) Figueres and Nicaragua's strong man President Anastasio Somoza have been feuding ever since the 1948 Costa Rican revolt. Former Presidents Picado and Calderon Guardia had been close to Somoza .and fled to Nicaragua. Figueres accused Somoza of helping Picados forces against him. Since then the two neighbor heads of state have frequently swapped accusations and border incidents have multiplied. One threat of violence last July calmed down when the United States rushed six Jet fighters to Costa Rica on a "good will mission." The latest crisis began last Saturday, when Figueres announced he had alerted the nation's civil guard against a possible new. invasion attempt from Nicaragua.
