Irving P e r e s s received "preferential treatment" in the Army despite "an open Communist record." The Tribune said: "Now openly at war with the Eisenhower administration. Me.

(/P) — The nation watched the South Dakota primary election today for possible clues as to how the farm belt feels about flexible price supports, as advocated by the Republican administration. Both Democratic candidates for governor, that party's only statewide contest, have injected national issues into their campaigns by accusing the GOP of backing "unsatisfactory farm legislation." Democratic leaders, laying stress on the rigid 90 per cent parity payments now being made as opposed to the flexible program, also have than been striving for a larger usual vote as "signal of yesterday's average; instances 1525 higher; bulk choice 180-240 Ib ^ _ 26.50-25.00; two loads mostly choice j Chimp Takes Photo No 1 and 2 27.15-25; 240-270 Ib mostly 25.50-26.50; heavier weights in small supply; load around 325 Ib 22.50 :150-170 Ib 26.50-27.00; sows 400 Ib down 19.75-20.75: few 21.00: heavier sows 17.75-19.50; boars 14.00-19.00.

Guatemala's Leftist Regime Seeks Fugitives Police Search For Underground Opposition Leaders By JACK RUTLEDGE GUATEMALA Vfi —Guatemala's leftist government kept a close watch on Latin-American embassies today for fugitives from a roundup of underground opposition leaders. Local newspapers said widespread police searches so far had government's charges Sunday that plans were under way for an uprising and arms had been assembled secretly. One diplomatic source viewed this as evidence that anti-government forces had "well-organized intelligence" forces, enabling them to learn "an hour or two before the raids that they are coming so they can escape or seek refuge." Five Pound Asylum Five leading opponents of President Jacob Arbenz's regime already have found asylum in the embassies of El Salvador and Ecuador in accordance with the Latin-American political tradition that sanctuary must be given to political fugitives. Reliable reports said the government was maintaining a guard on these and other embassies to prevent other fugitives escaping to them. Guatemalans have been jittery since the United States began blasting their government for receiving a- large shipment of arms from Communist Poland two weeks ago. The newspaper El Espectador said "recruiters" for Col. Carlos Castillo Armas, a leading opponent of Arbenz now living in neighboring Honduras, had been discovered near the Honduran border. Without giving any source for its report, the paper said the government had found evidence of a "vast conspiracy" to build up a rebel army. In Tegucigalpa, capital of neighboring Honduras, a 45-year-old man identifying himself as a Guatemalan named Rafael Mendez Rodriguez summoned corrrspond- ents to a news conference yesterday and said Guatemala's present secret police chief had sent him to kill Col. Castillo. Mendez said he' told Catillo of the plot the day after he arrived in El Salvador, in March. *» Gathings Believes House Farm Bill WillKeep90PerCentParity * / •$&*'**',*> ^^, L •' WASHINGTON Wl—An Arkansas Representative who is helping write a new farm bill, says he believes the House version of the bill "will provide for 90 per cent parity." Rep. E. C. Gathings (D-Ark.l, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, said there is no indication when the job will be completed. He said various members of the committee were given assignments j on sections of the bill containing commodities in which they are most intrested. Now the various sections have completed their reports and the full committee is working the segments into a presentable bill. • President Eisenhower's recommendations would be worked in with a continuation of high support prices, putting .all phases of the farm program into one bill, Gathings indicated. He said such a plan would be less apt to draw a veto from the President, who doesn't want high support prices. Eisenhower has recommended a system of flexible or sliding sup- ADDS TO ARMY ATTACK—The new M-59 personnel carrier is -used for the first time during "Operation Spearhead" at Ft. Hood.

He cautioned against allowing "ourselves - to be persuaded that every individual—or party—that takes issue with our convictions is necessarily wicked or treasonous." Defense Honest Dissent When that happens, he said, "then indeed we are approaching the end of freedom's road." He also warned against confusing "honest dissent with disloyal subversion." noting that "\ve are descended in blood and spirit from revolutionaries and rebels—men and women who dared to dissent from accepted doctrine." Turning to global matters, the President said America is committed to two far-reaching policies: "First and foremost, were dedicated to the building of a cooper- active peace, based upon truth, justice and fairness. "Second: to pursue this of fie- tively, we seek the strengthening of America—and her friends—in love of liberty, in knowledge and comprehension, in a dependable prosperity widely-shared, and in a military posture adequate for security." In such policies, he said, "there te no iota of aggression, no intent to exploit others or deny them their rightful place and space in tee world." H* said his administration known that "every negotiation with the Communists would be fraught with traps and pitfalls." But he •aid, "Positive, determined day-today toil would pay real dividends among free nations."

Denies New York Request Cohn, 27-year-old chief counsel to the McCarthy subcommittee, denied too that he ever asked that Schine be assigned to the New York area—disputing testimony of both Adams and Stevens. A little later Jenkins recalled testimony from Adams as to Conn's reaction when informed Schine might be sent overseas. Adams said Cohn threatened to wreck the Army and declared Stevens would be "through as secretary of the Army." I'm sure I did not make that statement." Cohn testified under oath, as had Adams. Both statements attributed to him, Cohft said, are "ridiculous and untrue." Further, Cohn added, "Mr. Adams or anybody else with any sense — and Mr. Adams has a lot of sense—" would not believe he threatened to wreck the Army. Cohn said he had checked the matter with Francis P. Carr, who also was present during the conversation between Adams and Schine, and Carr likewise does not recall Cohn making any such statements. "Injustice" Charged Carr is chief of staff of the McCarthy subcommittee. Charges against Carr have been dismissed, but he will be heard as a witness. Adams' testimony had been that Cohn flew into a -violent rage and made the threats when told that Schine, wealthy young New Yorker and former McCarthy subcommittee consultant, might have to go overseas like nine out of ten other soldiers. Cohn. who has acknowledged trying to get a direct commission as an officer for Seine, testified he felt it was "injustice" to Schine j for the Army not to give him a commission. When the matter of a commission for Schine first came up. Cohn said, Maj. Gen. Miles Reber said there was "no doubt" of Schine's qualifications. Later, Cohn said. Adams told him the reason Schine never got a commission was because of his connection with the McCarthy sub- 19 Believed Dead In Brazil Crash RIO DE JANEIRO.

At the time the question of a commission arose last year, Reber was Army liaison officer with Congress. Reber, Stevens and Adams all have testified they examined every possibility of a commission for Schine in the Army. Navy and Air Force, and that the finding was that he was not qualified. port prices and should he veto the proposed legislation, a system, of flexible supports automatically will go into effect next^year when the present farm act expires. The House strategy, however, is to give the President most of the things he wants in the hope that he will forfeit flexible supports in the light of other gains.
