WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23, 1954 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS fAGE SEVEN OutcomeofGuatemalaRevolt Is Highly Important to U.S. By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — Guatemalan officials and the anti-Communist invaders have been fighting their war with their mouths, both sides making claims, neither acknowledging losses, and censorship blacking-out the facts. It has to be assumed those who engineered the attack did some planning, both as to timing arid the size of the force necessary to win. The next few days will show whether the planning was shrewd or stupid. So far the invaders have been* disappointed if they were depend-1 ing upon wholesale desertions to j their side from the Guatemalan i army. And there is no indication ! the peasants flocked to join them either.

There's a lesson for the United States in the outcome if the troops remain loyal to the present government, the peasants rally behind their Communist union leaders and the invasion is repulsed.

Two of the revolutionary leaders were Juan Arevala and Jacobo Arbenz. Arevala became president. He accep'ted the help of Guatemala's Communists. His regime did put in social reforms, such as social security. Four years ago Arbenz was elected president. He had a land-reform program to break up the big estates and distribute them among the peasants. While the Communists were help-. ing Arevala and Arbenz, they were also strengthening their grip on the country. For instance, they got control of the labor unions. They didn't try to take over altogether. That could wait. " The land reforms appealed to the peasants, but were bucked by the big landowners and the United Fruit Co. which had large holdings in Guatemala. But opposition to Arbenz. who had the Communists sitting at his elbow, developed among the rich conservative Guatemalans and army officers who feared their country would wind up in time completely under the Communists. Many of them went into exile, including Col. Carlos Castillo ^ Armas, who is now leading the 'lib- eration'army" operating from a base in neighboring Honduras. More Than Foothold The United States has a big, obvious stake in not wanting a Communist government in Guatemala. It would do more than just give the Russians a foothold on the American continent. It would serve as a starting point to try to communize the rest of Latin America. And, in case of war with Russia, the Communists would have airfields in Guatemala, 800 miles from the Panama Canal. The problem which the United States has faced in Guatemala in wanting to win the allegiance of its people is the same it faces in most Latin-American countries and among impoverished people everywhere. Where there are poverty and hunger, the Communists have willing ears for their propaganda and their promises to give the poor a better share in society in the form of land, more food, and better health and living conditions.

This seemed to be the extent of American participation. mises are better than nothing, no matter how phony those promises turn out to be. Unless the United States can offer a program, or induces the regimes it supports to offer a program, in which the poor can see benefit for themselves, it faces the prospects of the Communists making progress in all the impoverished areas of the world.
