Nazi Envoy Accused
Of Playing Part in <
Bolivian Revolution
By the Associated Press.
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, Jan.
20.—A secret conference at
Buenos Aires in the home of
Count Karl von Luxburg, former
German Minister to Argentina,
was said here today to have
preceded the December 20 re
volution in Bolivia.
The authority for the report said
information on the conference came
| through at least two different diplo
matic channels.
Bolivian revolutionary leaders
; were in contact with Argentine Na
tionalists at the meeting, these in
formants said, and Victor Paz Es
tensboro, finance minister in the
new Bolivian regime of President
Maj. Gualberto Villarroel, was re
ported to have received "some mil
lions of Argentine pesos.”
Data Given to Other Republics.
The informants said this data was
included in information exchanged
between 18 American republics in
connection with the question wheth
er recognition should be accorded
to the Villarroel regime.
So far, Argentina has been the
only nation to grant such recogni
tion.
The new disclosures constituted
the first mention of Von Luxburg's
name in connection with Nazi activi
ties in Latin America. During the
I World War he was German Minister
| in Buenos Aires, but the Argentine
government declared him persona
non grata after the State Depart-1
ment in Washington disclosed he!
was transmitting ship information.!
He arrived again in Buenos Aires
about three years ago.
Minister of War Accused.
The disclosures here concerning
the Buenos Aires secret conference
came in the midst of recurrent ru
mors, in nowise confirmed, that the
Argentine government of President
Gen. Pedro Ramirez, the only Amer
ican regime still maintaining rela
tions with the Axis, had counte
nanced an Argentine nationalistic
plan to create a "Southern military
bloc ' including Bolivia, Chile. Uru
guay and even Southern Brazil.
One report through diplomatic
channels named Col. Juan Peron,
Argentine Minister of War as the
strong-arm man behind this re
ported scheme.
American Recognition
Of Bolivia Regime Doubted
By the Associated Press.
Belief prevailed in Washington to
day that the United States will not
recognize Bolivia’s revolutionary
government. Secretary of State
Hull said- yesterday that a decision
may be made relatively soon and in
timated that questions of pro-Axis
influences in Argentina may be
brought to a head about the same
time.
The United States and all other
American governments except Ar
gentina, where another revolution
ary force moved into office last June,
have withheld recognition of the
month-old La Paz regime pending
a joint investigation to determine
whether Axis activities contributed
to the Bolivian overturn.
becretary Hull emphasized to his
press conference yesterday that the
one paramount question on which
the decision of the United States—
and presumably the decision of the
18 other co-operating American na
I tions—will be based is whether pro
Axis activities designed to subvert
Allied governments were involved.
The parallel questions of Bolivia
and Argentina were brought up at
the Secretary's conference by in
quiries regarding a story published
in the New York World-Telegram
to the effect that Axis elements have
•so far penetrated the Argentine
regime that a refuge for Adolf Hitler
is being prepared in that country.
Broadly indicating interrelation
of the Bolivian and Argentine issues,
Mr. Hull said he would suggest that
if he takes up the report at all, he
would suggest that discussion come
along with the complete summing
up of the Bolivian situation which
the State Department hopes to make
soon.
In other quarters it was learned
that in the exchanges among the 19
| co-operating nations on the Bolivian
revolution some information on
Argentina has been turned up, but
usually well informed sources pro
cessed ignorance of the report re
garding a haven for Hitler.
| <In Buenos Aires, an official,
questioned concerning the Hitler
report, remarked: “Remember
two years ago when a story circu
lated that Mussolini was coming
to Buenos Aires if he lost power?
Did he come?”)
Mr. Hull made it clear that con
clusions with respect to recognizing
the Bolivian regime will be reached
independently by each of the 19
governments and that the views of
one will not necessarily affect the
views of any other.
The best clue to the American
attitude was given in a brief state
ment by Mr. Hull January 7. "The
information now available here,” he
said, "increasingly strengthens the
belief that forces outside of Bolivia
and unfriendly to the defense of the
American republics inspired and
aided the Bolivian revolution.”
While the United States has with
held action on the Bolivian ques
tion in the interest of the joint
international investigation, it has
normal diplomatic relations with the
government of Argentina.
Luis Marden to Speak
To Geographic Society
Luis Marden, who has made pho
tographic studies of many of the
American republics to the south,
will give an illustrated lecture on
Nicaragua tomorrow night before
the National Geographic Society at
Constitution Hall.
From a plane, Mr. Marden took
remarkable views of Nicaragua’s
i volcanoes. In addition to scenic
shots of the largest of the Central
American republics, Mr. Marden

seum specimens of the landlocked
shark, found only in Lake Nica

Minister for Supply, for a tour of
war plants in this country.
[i Sir Andrew is making the trip at
the invitation of Donald M. Nelson,

Board. After a brief visit in New
York, the council said, he will come

GOP Senators Vote
Approval of White
As Acting Leader
Senate Republicans, in party con
ference, today approved the action
of Minority Leader McNary in se
lecting Senator White of Maine to
fill the post during the Oregon
Senator's illness.
There had been reports that the
conference also would establish a
broader type of party organization
by electing a separate chairman of,
the Republican conference and a
whip, but after asking Senator;
White to continue as temporary
floor leader, the GOP Senators put
off all other organizational prob
lems for a week.
Taft Sponsors Motion.
On motion of Senator Taft of
Ohio the conference expressed ap
proval of the leadership of Senator
McNary, and of Senator WTiite as
acting leader.
Senator Willis of Indiana then
moved that a committee of five be
appointed to “review the needs of
the Republican party in the Senate
in view of the coming election, and
report back one week from today.” ,
It is expected any further organiza- ,
tional changes will be considered by
this committee.
Party Anticipates Gains.
In response to questions, Senator
White said he assumed the Willis
resolution covered all organizational
matters, and added, "We are getting
ready to take over control of the
Senate.” He was referring to the
party's hopes of picking up in No
vember the 11 or 12 seats they need
to organize the Senate. With 49
needed for a majority, there are now
37 republicans, 1 progressive and 58
Democrats.
Senator WTiite said he had ex
pected the conference would dis
cuss some of the major legislation
awaiting action, but there was only
time for casual reference to pending
business.

Lepke fo Fight Shift
To Custody of State
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Jan. 20 —A possible
new obstacle to the execution of
Louis (Lepke) Buchalter, Murder,
Inc., chieftain, developed yesterday
when a defense attorney said he
would try to block the transfer of
Lepke from Federal to State cus
tody.
Attorney J. Bertram Wegman
made the announcement on arriv
ing here from Detroit.
Months of dispute between the
Federal and State governments over
Lepke’s custody ended this week
when State Attorney General Na
thaniel Goldstein accepted Attorney
General Biddle’s offer to surrender
the gangster on condition he be
returned to the Federal Govern
ment If not executed.
In a similar case a number of
years ago the Federal Government
released Gerald Chapman for execu
tion, but legal moves delayed im
position of the death penalty for
more than a year.
Lepke, sentenced to die in the
electric chair at Sing Sing Prison
for the 1936 slaying of a Brooklyn
storekeeper, Is serving a 14-year
Federal sentence on a narcotics
conviction. He has been confined
in the Federal House of Detention
in New York City for three years.

TWA Files Application
For New Airline Route
Transcontinental Sc Western Air,
Inc., has applied to the Civil Aero
nautics Board for permission to op
erate giant four-engine Constella
tion planes over a new coast-to
coast route via Chicago, Kansas City
and Denver, it has been announced
by Charles Gallo, assistant vice
president of the air line.
Testifying before the board, Mr.
Gallo said the service would reduce
elapsed flying time for passengers,
mall and express from Eastern and
Midwestern cities, and reduce fares.
The Constellation was developed by
Lockheed Aircraft for the air line,
which released them to the Air
Forces for the duration.
Mr. Gallo said the four-engine
ships would provide six-hour air
service between Washington and
Denver, a gain of more than four
hours over present schedules, and
10-hour service between Washington
and Los Angeles, a gain of seven
and one-half hours.
