Carlos Castillo Armas finally stood at the top of the political heap in Guatemala today. The government announced the rebel chief was elected president of a new three-man junta, the fifth government turnover in less than two weeks. Col. Elfego Monzon, temporary chief of the five-man junta in charge since last Friday, remained on the new pared-down ruling body. But the reins were clearly in Castillo's hands. The third member of the top group, Maj. Enrique Oliva, was defense minister in the provisional government which the rebel leader set up at Chiquimula after his army of Guatemalan exiles invaded their homeland from neighboring Honduras June 18. Two Resign A government decree last night said Castillo's election was effective immediately. The announce- jment said the five members of the previous junta voted unanimously to make him head man at a meeting Wednesday night. The other two members of the previous group—Lt. Col. Mauricio Dubois and Lt. Col. Jose Luiz Cruz—resigned. In a formal Statement they said a smaller group would make governing .easier. It was speculated the two would draw diplomatic assignments, one likely in Washington. Castillo's emergence as chief of G u a t e m a 1 a's newest anti-Red regime had been expected for several days. The move finally gave the colonel's liberation army a> clear-cut victory. Many Dissatisfied Most of his followers were openly dissatisfied with the compromise arrangement he reached with Monzo at a peace conference last week in El Salvador. Ib* conference set up the five-man junta which Monzon headed as temporary chief. It was agreed that a permanent president would be picked by July 17. Castillo's drive into Guatemala from Honduras set off a series of rapid government shakeups. First, ex-Preident Jacobo Arbe'nz Guzman, whose government had had Communist support, quit on June 27. A junta headed by Col. Carlos Enrique Diaz, his army chief of staff, took over for one day. Then Monzon—like Castillo, a strong anti-Communist — stepped in. Through mediation efforts of U.S. Ambassador John E. Peurifoy, Monzon came to terms with Castillo in the El Salvador talks, and they joined forces last Friday.

Tin Company Probe Starts Witness Sees Nothing Wrong In Accepting Job JUNEAU, Alaska '(ff) — Kenneth Kadow, former Interior Department employe, says he sees nothing wrong in taking a job with U. S. Tin Corp., after urging the government to loan the company money. Kadow was named Wednesday before the Senate-House Defense Production Committee as being one of those who had urged granting of loans to the company. Testimony by Charles W. Merrill. assistant chief of the Minerals Division of the Bureau of Mines, told the committee in Washington that Kadow had strongly supported granting the tin company a $375,000 government loan early in 1951. Then f Merrill said. Kadow left the Department of Interior, by which he was employed in Alaska, to become a consultant to and later president of U.S. Tin. In Juneau today, Kadow placed the blame for the investigation on William Strand, director of the Of-' fice of Territories. "I cannot understand." Kadow said, "how a fair, unbiased hearing can be held without a single U.S. Tin Corp. witness given an opportunity to testify. "Ever since William Strand start- States should go slow on deciding | ec i the investigation against me last whether to quit the U. N. as a re- | f a u j nave been pleading for a pub- suit.

A fresh statement of the administration's attitude was given Congress today by Asst Secretary of State Thurson B. Morton. Morton wrote Chairman Chiperfield (R-H1) of the House Foreign Affairs Committee that if Red China joined the U.

Burial will retary said, " we would not think that the policy we have in mind would be promoted by any ' congressional action wihch seemed to take it for granted that the Chinese Communist regime would in fact be seated in the various organs of the United Nations." Rep. Bently (R-Micn.) author of the proposed resolution, said in making Morton's letter public that he thought hiis plan might provide a "compromise" between administration reluctance to being committed in advance and some congressional desires to go on record ahead of the next General As{ sembly meeting Sept. 21. > "We would have served notice that a change could be expected if the Red Chinese come in," Bentley said, "and any nation which then voted for Red Chinese admission would do so in full awareness of the consequences of such action." Sen. Smith said he understands the Knowland amendment to mean that "if that crisis should arise" after Congress adjourns, Eisenhower would call the matter to Congress, attention — perhaps by summoning Senate and House leaders to a White House conference. "It doesn't bind us," he said. Evidence of tacit, if not enthusiastic support from committee Bsm- ocrats was given by Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark.) when asked about the Knowland plan yesterday. Fulbright, a committee member, said the amendment "certainly is a far cry from withdrawing from the U. N." While he's not advocating the proposal, the senator said, "I have no particular objection to it." ing a hearing — and still the slander continues." He said any inference that he supported the U.S. Tin application for a loan just to create a job for himself is ">30 per cent false." There is no question but that he gave support to the application, he told reporters, but said it was prior to any idea on his part or that of company officials that he join the corporation. "I do not know of any official interested in Alaska's development that did not support the U.S. Tin application." he said. "I joined the corporation later, when convinced there was a job I could do for them, which is neither immoral nor illegal.' While it is true that I have recieved a fair salary for the last 18 months from U.S. Tin, the first 18 months I was paid in stock of the corporation, except for $2,400." He agreed that several goals expressed in the tin company's first and subsequent applications for a loan were- not realized on schedule, but said: "If this fact constitutes a sin in Alaska, then nearly every Alaskan who does anything is a sinner because few projects are ever realized on schedule." He expressed a belief the committee would allow him to testify soon. bt in Mi. *QCV Otnwtwy witfc CM-| *Mi*mi, PI*. ton Funeral Home in charge.
