Soviet Interference in Hemisphere Cited by U.S. WASHJJ«5TON (AP) United States declared today that there is "growing evidence of a desire of the Soviet Union to in- Lervene more directly In the affairs of this hemisphere." U.S. Ambassador John C. Dreier made the assertion in urging the Organization of American States to approve a proposal by Peru for a meeting of Western Hemisphere orelgn ministers to consider such threats. Peruvian Ambassador Juan Bautiftta de Lavalle said Ameri- out nftlons are threatened by an '' "tonal communism plan ert the freedottui" of Hemisphere nations." Dreier also told the QAS Council that Soviet Nlkita Klu-ushchev'e mUcile against the United evidettoe of tnten-venjion Security Council Its charges of aggression by the United States violates both the real treaty and the U.

He noted that the council already has called for a meeting of foreign ministers to consider Venezuelan charges of aggression by the Dominican Republic. Support for the proposed foreign ministers meeting also came from Uruguayan Ambassador Carlos Clulow who said his nation "disapproves and condemns" any Intervention in Western Hemisphere affairs and from Ecuador, Brazil and Colombia.

With the rolls still incomplete, the committee roster showed 41 changes in membership. Many of the departing members had been forced out in state committee voting when they declined to come out publicly for Kennedy tn advance of the convention- There was no doubt that Kennedy's camp had catalogued every member. Those among the carryovers who bad been reluctant to see the Massachusetts senator nominated could expect to be bypassed in the campaign. It had been years since the Democrats, use to catch-as catch-can campaigning, had encountered anything like the ruth- ess efficiency which marked the beginning of the Kennedy regime.
