WBW1E8DAY, JANUARY 26, 1998 BtTTHBTILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB 300 Rebels Surrender Threat of Fighting Dies on Costa Rica, Nicaragua Border SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) — The threat of bloodshed between neighboring Costa Rica and Nicaragua subsided today after 300 Costa Rican Rebels surrendered to internment in Nicaragua. An Inter-American Peace Commission postponed a planned Washington trip to finish its conciliation job. The retreat of the Insurgent, remnants across the Nicaraguan frontier apparently marked the definite end of the two-week-old Costa Rican revolution. It came after the San Jose government ordered its troops into the now abolished neutral zone along the border with Nicaragua to hunt rebel holdouts. Nicaraguan President Anastasio Somoza said earlier any insurgents crossing the border would be jailed in Managua. Their internment made unnecessary any advance by Costa Rican troops to the fron- Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton Mar May July Oct Deo 3472 3472 3503 3503 3523 «3523 3517 3517 3522 3523 3466 3497 3518 3506 3512 N«w Orleans Cotton Mar ...

Good Newa Jose Mora of Uruguay, president of the Council of the Organization of American States, said in Washington that the rebels' retreat "Is good news since it means the end of a threat" of fighting between Costa Rican and Nicaraguan forces. But in Managua, Teodor Picado Sr., exiled ex-President of Costa Rica, predicted "there will be many more revolutions" if necessary to oust the government of President Jose Figueres. Picado said his son Teodoro Jr., West Point - trained field commander of the rebel force, "won't give up." The younger Picado's whereabouts were not known in San Jose. The internment of insurgents crossing the border was announced by Nicaraguan foreign minister Oscar Sevilla Sacasa in a telephone call here to Luis Quintanilla of Mexico, chairman of the peace commission sent the OAS.

Flight Unnecessary QuintaniHa said the sudden end- 'ing of Uie rebel threat made unnecessary the commission's planned flight yesterday to Washington. The group had scheduled the trip to present to the OAS Council a request from figures for more observers along the border. Major fighting in the rebellion stopped last Friday but the Costa Rican government said more than 200 rebels were holed up in the buffer zone set up at the request of the OAS commission to keep Costa Rican troops chasing the rebels from getting within shooting distance of the Nicaraguan border. Figueres had accused Somoza of aiding the rebellion, a charge the Nicaraguan chief executive denied. Announcing his agreement Monday to end the neutral zone arrangement, Somoza warned that he was mobilizing about 500 troop.s along the border to protect his country and that the shedding of S "any drop of Nicaraguans' blood will mean war."

RED CHINA Continued from Page 1 acceptance of the plan to evacuate the Tachens, 200 miles north of here and 20 miles off the Red mainland, Two of the islands are within artillery range of Yikiangshan. The latest air strike at Yikiang- shan presumably was intended to suppress Communist guns which might hinder the evacuation of the Tachens. But Nationalist officials didn't want to give the impression they were eager to abandon any of the island outposts. Formal Steps Although the evacuation is all set, including deployment of a powerful 7th Fleet force "at the ready," certain formal steps must be taken before it gets under way. These steps include final congressional approval of Eisenhower's request for authority to use "the armed forces of the United States if necessary to assure the security of Formosa and the Pescadores," a formal offer of U.S air and naval forces to assist Chiang Kai-shek in the redeployment of his forces, and Chiang's reply, which is certain to - be acceptance. About 15,000 regulars and guerrillas will be evacuated. The 15,000 civilian inhabitants will be given j their choice, and most are expected to ask for evacuation. Premier O. K. Yui has gone into all phases of the Tachen situation with his Cabinet.

Blytheville Steam Laundry & Cleaners All-German Elections Necessary-Adenauer By BRACK CUKRY BONN, Germany Ml—Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's government .said today the Soviet declaration ending Russia's state of war with Germany will produce practical progress toward normal relations only If Moscow accepts free elections and a peace treaty for all Germny. The government made this statement following a Cabinet meeting to consider the significance of the Russian announcement yesterday. "The Soviet declaration," the statement said, "means practical progress toward the reestabllsh- rnent of normal relations between the Soviet Union and Germany only if the Soviet Union agrees to an all-German government and the genuine free electloas for the whole concluded in full freedom between SENATE Continued from Page 1 and Armed Services committees was required before it could act officially. Chairman George (D-Gai of the Foreign Relations Committee predicted the resolution would clear that group during the day. He said he expected overwhelming Senate approval this week. Sen. Russell (D-Ga), chairman of the Armed Services Committee, joined in predicting committee approval today . There were signs of uneasiness on the part of some senators, however, over aspects of the closed- door testimony by members of the of Germany and to a peace treaty former war enemies of Germany and if the Soviet Union takes all measures to attain this aim." The statement expressed hope, however, that the Soviet Union now will release all German prisoners of war and civilians. The West German government "naturally welcomes every move that might lead to an easing of the tension between East and West and to a genuine state of peace," it said. "The statement of the Soviet Union on the termination of the state of war with the whole of Germany is in accordance with the actions which have been taken in 1951 by the Western Allies and after then, up to now, by more than 50 nations. "The value of this declaration, however, is restricted insofar as the Soviet Union, in opposition to all other statements that have been made by former war enemies of Germany, has reserved all rights in connection with four - power agreements, especially the agreement of Yalta and Potsdam." The question "What does it mean, a lot or nothing?" held the attention of parliamentary and party leaders in their attempts to eval uate the latest Russian move. Adenauer himself is still on vacation in the Black Forest but is due to return to the capital Allied and German officials tomorrow. agreed that the Russian .statement was another shot in its vigorous campaign to prevent West German ratification of the Paris agreements with the Western Allies to rearm the Bonn republic. Joint Chiefs of Staff. Sen. Sparkman (D-Ala>, for example, said that as he interpreted the testimony, Army Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway approved of the objectives in' the President's request "but he apparently doesn't want Quenioy included" in any Formosa defense ring. "He doesn't want to put manpower on the continent of Asia," Sparkman told a newsman in reference 10 Rtdgway's position. "He regards Q u e m o y as the same thing." Quemoy, about three miles from the mainland, lies off the big port' of Amoy. No Names While the resolution does not name any offshore islands which this country would fight to defend, Eisenhower in his message called Quemoy "one of the natural ap- proaches to Formosa." George said Ridgway contended U. S. ground troops should not become involved the Chinese Officials in Washington and Park took the .same view. But it was not yet clear what practical effects the Soviet declaration would have. Speculation in German and Allied circles ranged from the possibility of a new Berlin blockade to a Russian retreat from Germany. It raised anxious hop* among West Germans that tons of thousands of Germans reported still held prisoner in Russia might now be sent home. Allied officials in Bonn and Berlin were still busy trying to figure out what comes next. They drew attention to the "significant" reservation in the Russia decree that the Soviet would keep the "right and obligation" under four-power agreement regarding Germany ae a whole.
