FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SUVEN Trujillo Ghost Still Rules in Santo Domingo By ROBERT BBRRELLEZ SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP)-The ghost of Generalissimo Rafael Lconldas Trujillo still rules the Dominican Republic. The memory of the dictator, dead two years, was a major fac tor in the 1962 presidential election. His shadow today threatens the stability of this Infant democracy. Juan Bosch, a white-thatched author-professor was swept into office only eight months ago by a crushing national vote of approval. Now his growing unpopularity is one of many disturbing signs here. "The trouble here," says a foreign businessman, "is that everyone wants to govern, but after 31 years of tyranny nobody really knows how." Incompetence A lack of distinguishable national and international policies springs from widespread administrative incompetence. This has aroused the business and professional classes and some segments of labor, and tended to alienate the Roman Catholic Church. As a result, a once-bright economic picture is dimming and the probabilities of violence are increasing. There is a growing feel- Ing that President Bosch's gov ernment may not survive long. Prominent Dominicans regard the tenor and scope of the opposition as confirming a theory that Bosch didn't win the 1962 presidential elections, the National Civic Union lost them. This view holds that the once- powerful civic union lost out when it insisted on a pre-election policy of punishing all former collaborators and associates of > Trujillo. It is said a great segment of the population—Including the military establishment — felt itself threatened by such a policy and therefore came to regard Bosch as the lesser of two evils. The Irony of the situation now is that Bosch, whose revolution ary party adopted a soft approach to the Trujillo issue, has asked for stiff confiscation measures against all who might have ben- efited—«ven indirectly—under the fallen tyrant. Announcement of a new confiscation law drove antigovernment feeling to its most dangerous peak. The uproar was but one of the many storms kicked up by the Bosch regime. By word and deed the president seems to have contributed to unrest that has driven investment capital away and frightened American companies whose holdings are valued at $100 million. There have been recent signs the president is softening his sometimes stubborn and arbitrary attitudes. But there are fears the situation cannot continue as it is without an explosion. Any move by Bosch to stem the tide and restore confidence in the business sector by easing up on some of his reforms could be the signal for the Castroites and far left to make their move.
