WEDNESDAY, MAT 19, 1954 BLYTHEVIL1J! (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PA01 FITt Arms Charge Routs Guatelmalan Envoy At'Harmony' Meet By BEN F. MEYER WASHINGTON (AP) — Guatemala's chief diplomat here stalked out of an inter-American "harmony" meeting last night as Sen. Wiley (R-Wis) spoke of the "ominous arrival" in Guatemala of "a tremendous shipment of arms" from Communist Poland. Wiley, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was chief speaker at a dinner in honor of Latin-American diplomats and he used the occasion to discuss a 'State Department announcement that a Swedish ship was unloading at a Guatemalan port arms which it reportedly had taken on at Stettin in Poland. The senator did not name Guatemala, but it was clear he was talking about that Central American nation, which he has described before as "a Communist beachhead in the Americas." Everybody, said Wiley, is "keenly aware of the grim implications" of the news about the arms shipment, which he said may be "a part of the master plan of world communism." At that point in the speech, Dr. Alfredo Chocano, acting head of the Guatemalan Embassy, Rose, walked to where W. Cameron Burton, president of the host district of Columbia Bar Assn., was seated near the s p e a k e r's rostrum, thanked Burton for the invitation and said he had to leave. Denies Knowledge Then he strode through a backdrop and out of the banquet room. Outside, the Guatemalan told newsmen: "I don't know anything about that arms shipment." He said he interpreted Wiley's remarks as an "allusion to Guatemala" and that he walked out "because I am not in agreement with what he said." Wiley had been seated beside Dr. Chocano during dinner and told newsmen later he and the Guatemala diplomat discussed the arms shipment, "but only very briefly." "Dr. Chocano told me that it was only about 400 tons of arms and that they were all for the army,' 'Wiley said. "There was nothing personal, of course, in my remarks." In his speech, Wiley called for "hemispheric consultation" on what he termed the "alarming" development in turbulent Central America. Such consultation could be a preliminary to joint action by the 21 American republics under the Rio Mutual Defense Treaty. A majority of those republics would have to approve before military, economic or diplomatic sanctions could be invoked to quell a threat to the peace. Until now, the other republics have indicated no such alarm as this country has displayed toward a rising influence of communism in Guatemala. Pakistan Due U.S. Arms Aid Formal Agreement Signed at Karachi WASHINGTON UP) —The United States formally pledged today to provide "military equipment and training assistance" to Pakistan's armed forces. i The agreement, bitterly opposed by India, was signed at Karachi by Pakistan's foreign minister Sir Mohammed Zafralla Khan, and Sir John Kenneth Emreson, American Embassy charge d'affaires. The action, announced here, paves the way for sizeable shipments of American weapons to modernize Pakistan's army so it can help guard that Asiatic region against possible Communist aggression. In an obvious move to reassure India, the United States and Pakistan simultaneously exchanged notes setting forth "their mutual understanding" that the agreement: 1. Does not involve granting of military bases on Pakistan soil to the United States. 2. Does not establish a military alliance between Pakistan and the United States. American defense strategists regard arms aid to Pakistan as part of a move to build up the defense- ive strength of the entire Middle East.

Korean Vote 8 Million Voters To Elect a New National Assembly SEOUL (#) — President Eyngman Rhee today put South Korea under a three-day emergency police alert as some eight million voters prepared to elect a new National Assembly tomorrow. A total of 1,213 candidates for the 203-seai legislature wound up their campaign with more charges and denials of police strong-arm interference. Rhee has called for election of only his own Liberal party members. His main opposition, which supports his war policy but opposes his domestic program, is the Democratic Nationalist party. Both Democratic Nationalists and independents have made numerous campaign charges of police intimidation and beatings. In Pusan, several campaigners for Horn Jung, an independent candidate and former Cabinet minister under Rhee, said they were beaten. One woman was seriously injured. Another of Hoh's supporters died of a skull fracture after spending the night in jail on charges of curfew violation and drunkenness. His family said he had not been drinking. Other anti-administration candidates complained that police intimidation made it impossible for them to complete or file election petitions.

Wood, 56, present lieutenant governor and "harmony" choice of the GOP leadership, and Democratic State Sen. George M. Leader, 36, nominee of the party's state policy committee.
