Mystery Man Pulls Strings In Argentina By PHIL NEWSOM \JPl Foreign News Analyst In Montevideo, Uruguay, across the broad ftivet? Plate (torn Argentina a mysterious figufe once again is pulling strings in Argentine politics. He is a stocky, bushy^browed self-made man in his late 40s whose name is Rogelio Frigerio. Me describes himself as a friend both of former Argentine dictator Juan D. Peron and ousted President Arturo Frondizi. Right now the Argentine military have a warrant out for his arrest if he should be so foolish as to return to Argentina. Which does not, however, eliminate him as a force. BVigerio is mysterious because he seldom operates in the open. He did not even emerge as a figure in Argentine politics until after Peron's overthrow in 1955. Busy Making Money Before that he was too busy making money, first through a chain of men's shops and, later, in the textile business. tt was while trying his hand as editor of the news magazine Que, closed under Peron in 1946 and re opened in 1956, that Frigerio began plugging Frondi2i for president, a labor which occupied his attention all through 1957. According to a story denied by Frondizi but claimed by Peron to be true, it was in 1957 that Frigerio went to Caracas. Venezuela, and signed a pact with a Peron representative guaranteeing the Peronista votes that led to Frondizi's election. At any rate, Frigerio became Frondizi's all-powerful social and economic czar after Frondizi's landslide victory in 1958. Involved With Cuba He is the figure credited with being in back of Frondizi's reluctance to break with Cuba. He also is credited with being the man responsible for the ouster of Roy Rubottom, U. S. ambassador to Argentina and former assistant secretary oi state for Latin American affairs. But he also is the man credited with Frondizi's appeal to Fidel Castro to break off with Russia, Galej&y^ Thursday, June 27 r 1963. 7 and with the decision to invite foreign investment and aid in the development of Argentina's oil industry. He is, to say the least, controversial. Within recent months he has conferred with Peron in the latter's Spanish exile. As an individual, Frigerio is big business and speaks for big business — but Argentine big business. He likes President Kennedy but dislikes Wall Street. His objective is to bring three million isolated followers of Peron back into the country's political life in a union with the middle class followers of Frondizi. "Hie purpose, he said, is to give the masses greater benefits and to spur the nation's economic benefits. The United States has endorsed the popular front idea and hopes the Argentine military will permit truly free elections next month. Such would seem to assure a victory for combined Fron- ddzi-Peronista forces. At the moment, as Argentina drifts and its economy disiflte* grates, military decrees forbid either a Peronista candidate fe-f president or a candidate opertly supported by Peronistas. And whether Argentina would benefit by the return of the U.S.* hating Peron or his policies is at best extremely "iffy."
