Section 2 Pages 13-22 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Amusement Comics . Family Page Established January 15, 1836. ALTON, ILL., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1963 7c Per Copy Member of The Associated Editor Resists Regime Elm Disease Books Free By ROBERT BERRELLfcZ GUATEMALA (AP)—The desk of Clemente Marroquin Rojas, peppery editor Of the newspaper La Hora, is cluttered with unpublished antigoVernment editorials. He turns out a new one every day. At the fend of each he invariably adds 1 , a line: "Because I know this will not be approved for publication, may it serve to enlighten the censor." La Hora is the only newspaper with a censor in all Guatemala. The other newspapers, warned by the government not to publish anything critical of it, practice a form of self-censorship. When it came down to the fiery Marroquin Rojas, however, it was like asking Niagara to hush up. The editor represents one sector of resistance to a 6-months old military regime which many Guatemalans fear is turning into a long-playing dictatorship. "We have a brand new, bubbly volcano—right in the presidential palace," says a Guatemalan politician, now idle. "We're wondering just when it'll erupt." A taciturn, career military officer, Col. Enrique Peralta Azurdie, calls signals, as chief of government. The army stepped in March 30 to boot out President Miguel Ydigoras who was in the last stages of a six-year term, called by Gua'emalans the most corrupt in their history. The army has shown no sign of relinquishing power. Col. Peralta once mentioned a period of two years before elections, but has not recently reaffirmed that. The government has undertaken administrative and fiscal reforms but there is widespread aapprehen- sion about accompanying measures that liquidated almost all vestige of constitutional guarantees, including the inviolability of home and person and the right of expression. People are living under a state of siege, a modified form of martial law. A new law says that after four years cotton growers must devote land to other crops to protect the soil. They contend the law will destroy their thriving business. Owners of sugar mills were ordered to pay an arbitrary price to cane growers after the Ministry of Agriculture could not solve the prcblem. In these and other measures, many Guatemalans have seen the fine hand of experienced poli- cians working with the military in the transition from a strong military machine to a powerful civilian apparatus of the future. PARIS -A strong rumor in French governmental circles has this country ready to leave NATO. WASHINGTON - Rep. Paul Findley, Illinois' 20th District Republican Congressman, said today that a 12 - page booklet is available to home owners on Dutch elm disease and its control. "With the problem becoming more acute in west-central Illinois many persons may find the pamphlet helpful in diagnosing and controlling Dutch elm disease," Rep. Findley said. The booklet is avilable without charge to anyone who wants a copy. Address Representative Findley at 1032 House Office Building, Washington 25, D. C. The booklet was prepared by Russell R. Whitten, entomologist for the U. S. Forest Service, and Roger U. Swingle, pathologist in the crops research division of the Agricultural Research Service. "WASHINGTON—Census figures show that one in five voters will move between elections. To Represent Illinois at Dental Meet Dr. Ralph A. Dickson, 40 Fairmount Addn., is an alternate delegate and will represent Illinois at the 104th annual session of the American Dental Association Oct. 14-17 in Atlantic City, N. J. More than 500 essays, clinics, lectures, films and exhibits will be presented on the scientific program held in conjunction with the annual business meeting. It is estimated that 18,000 dentists, dental educators, d e n t a t manufacturers and guests will attend the meeting.
