THE KEY WEST CITIZEN Guatemala To Reverse Its Policy New Government Refuses To Deal With Red Nations By CARLOS ISCUOERO GUATEMALA <J) Guatemala’s new government baa turned its back on the Communist world in a bid to get on better terms with its Western Hemisphere neighbors. Elfego Monzon and Carlos Cas tillo Armas, top colonels in the five-man junta, told a news con ference yesterday their administra tion would reverse toe policy of the ousted government ex-Presi dent Jacobo Arbenz Guzman and would refuse to deal with the So viets or their Iron Curtain allies. The colonels said Guatemala also would rejoin the Organization of Central American States (ODECA) and support toe Organization of American States (OAS) and the United Nations. Bid Par Recognition This was considered an appeal for diplomatic recognition. So far two countries—Costa Rica and £1 Salvador—have served notice they will take up formal relations with the five-day-old military regime. The leftist Arbenz government diopped out of ODEOA last year accusing the other members of ag gressive intentions toward Guate mala. Six weeks before Castillo's anti - Communist revolution top pled Arbenz from power, bis gov ernment received a 10-million-dol lar arms shipment from behind the Iron Curtain. Monzon, who is titular head of the junta until it elects a perma nent chief July 17, said yesterday the police have completely filled the country’s jails with 2,000 Com munists suspects and now are pre paring new places of confinement. Refug* Sought Monzon said 1,000 persons have taken refuge in foreign embassies. The case of each of these will be studied, he said, and no safe con ducts out of the country will be granted for any persons wanted for crimes. He said no request for safe con duct has been made by Arbenz, who is in the Mexican Embassy. The colonels announced they would suspend the national land law, under which Arbenz cut up and redistributed large land hold ings, until anew constitution is rafted. They said, however, public works projects started under the old government will be continued and social gains consolidated. Truman Shows Good Progress KANSAS CITY UFi Harry S.
