U. S. Setbacks Feared
From Argentina Crisis
By WILLIAM L. RYAN
Associated Press Staff Writer
BUENOS AIRES, Feb. 3. —Argentina’s crisis over what to
do about Fidel Castro’s Cuba could mean that the spirit of
Punta del Este may yet haunt President Kennedy’s administra
tion.
The Argentine government is wrestling with a sort of Alice
in Wonderland crisis. But it points up the danger of boom-
erang effects elsewhere from
the Foreign Ministers Confer
ence which ended Wednesday
in neighboring Uruguay.
One gets the impression here
that Argentine President Ar
turo Frondizi, an astute poli
tician. expected this situation
to develop and was prepared for
it. Thus the chances seemed to
be that he would be fully cap
able of handling it in stride and
coming out on top.
But that does not end the
affair.
Unpleasant Possibilities
The crisis still can indicate—
and even provoke—side effects
highly unpleasant for the
United States and many of
those forces in Latin America
which backed the Kennedy
team’s insistence on a strong
anti-Castro stand at Punta del
Este.
The demand of the Argen
tine military for an Immediate
break in diplomatic relations
with Cuba’s Communist regime
looks to the rest of Latin
America, on the surface, like
an immediate result of the
Punta del Este meeting. It
has the look of pressure from
highly conservative elements
to reverse the position Argen-
Mansfield Asks Review
Os Latin Aid Missions
Senate Democratic Leader Mansfield yesterday called for
a “drastic redesign” of Agency for International Development
missions in Latin America.
Reporting as an individual member of a Senate Appro
priations subcommittee that recently visited United States
agencies in Latin American countries, the Montana Senator
declared that “a shakedown of —
agencies and re-ordering of
functions is clearly needed.”
Senator Mansfield’s 85-page
personal report to Subcommit
tee Chairman McClellan,.Dem
ocrat of Arkansas, said he
hoped his views would “con
tribute to the consideration of
certain foreign policy questions
by the Senate.”
He emphasized, however, that
the official position of the
United States Government was
stated in the views of the
United States delegation at
Punta del Este.
Noting that Latin America is
in the midst of a “dynamic so
cial transition,” Senator Mans
field said it is In the national
interest of the United States
and in the best interest of

tina took at the conference
against stern measures to deal
with the Havana regime.
This could have the effect
of producing similar move
ments from the right wing In
others of the six nation bloc
that resisted a strong stand.
It could produce also similar
efforts from the left to
threaten and attempt to harass
governments that supported
the move for stern measures.
Might Affect Alliance
In brief, Punta del Este
could bring about a sharpen
ing of conflicts throughout
Latin America rather than
easing them. Such a develop
ment might play havoc with
attempts to get President Ken
nedy’s Alliance for Progress
economic plans off the ground.
Mr. Frondizi flitted about
the hemisphere and the globe
in advance of the Punta del
Este conference explaining Ar
gentina’s policies. Last April
he explained his Ideas to the
then Brazilian president, Janlo
Quadros, who liked what he
heard. For the first time Ar
gentina and Brazil agreed for
mally, on paper, to consult
Latin America that essential
changes in that area should be
by peaceful and evolutionary
means.
“Unless we are prepared to
remain firm in the insistence
that we will aid only where
there is a reasonable oppor
tunity for the ordinary people
of Latin America to obtain tan
gible benefit from the help,"
he said, "we will face sooner or
later even greater difficulties
than criticism and temporary
reprisals. The Alliance for
Progress must be clearly under
stood now, and pursued solely
as a vigorous effort to assist In
the necessary change in Latin
America for the benefit of the
people of that region.”
Senator" Mansfield com-
with each other on their re
spective foreign policies.
The results of that showed
up at Punta del Este, where
Argentina, despite what ap
peared to be a willingness to go
along with the United States,
joined the bloc of six led by
(Brazil and Mexico. As a conse
quence, the crucial resolution
to drum Castro Cuba out of the
Organization of American
States squeaked through by a
bare two-thirds margin, and
United States prestige appeared
to have been hurt.
Military Takes Hand
Mr. Frondizi seemed to have
withstood strong United States
pressures. The sudden demand
of the military in Buenos Aires
for a break with Cuba, however,
began to look as if Mr. Frondizi
was less successful in with
standing pressures in his own
backyard.
But Mr. Frondizi is a veteran
of crises. He has many prob
lems at home, the biggest of
which are economic. He is hav
ing mounting trouble for ex
ample, putting over his de
mands to pare the enormously
top-heavy federal payroll.
For Mr. Frondizi, the military
demands may have proved a
bit of a boon by taking popular
attention off internal problems
for a while.
The army in Argentina made
the revolution in 1955 and
stepped aside then for consti
tutional government. Today It
is believed to be determined to
preserve constitutional govern
ment.
But Argentina’s complicated
Internal politics are not always
understood outside the coun
try. That fact can make the
crisis in Buenos Aires a dis
turbing factor elsewhere in the
hemisphere.
plained that there is “an enor
mous duplication of sources of
help for Latin America” and
that these are not used in an
adequate pattern.
“Moreover ” he added, “it is
likely that more sources of aid
will continue to be piled on
top of existing sources and
there will be such cumbersome
ness, confusion, rivalry, and
red tape that effective follow
through under the Alliance for
Progress will be next to im
possible.”

With over 15,000 new Florida residents every
month, demands for residential and industrial
property have pushed Florida frontiers west.
As land demands increase, land becomes scarce
and its value increases... a simple case of
supply and demand. For example, this same
land two years ago was offered to the public
for £395.00. The value of this land has increased
over 100% in this short time.

Larae blocks of this land have been released
to the public making it possible for any enter

Most people made their fortunes this way...
buying cheap land and selling at handsome

none are planned, as fast as this land is sold
prices should go up. Today is the time to buy

Byrd Recommends U. S.
Sell Stockpile Surplus
By JACK BELL
Associated Press Staff Writer
Senator Harry F. Byrd, Democrat of Virginia, proposed
yesterday that Congress direct President Kennedy to sell $3.4
billion in stockpiled strategic materials and use the receipts
to balahce the budget.
"If we could get money from this excessive accumulation
of materials flowing into the Treasury we might be able to
balance the budget and keep
from increasing the debt limit,”
Senator Byrd said in an inter
view.
The Virginia Senator has
agreed to clear the road for
an investigation by a special
committee headed by Senator
Symington, Democrat of Mis
souri, of what President Ken
nedy called the excessive stock
piling of $7.7 billion in war
emergency items.
The Senate is expected to be
asked to approve a $30,000 out
lay for a staff to inquire into
the situation before the group
begins hearings in about a
month.
Senate Republican leaders
had urged Senator Byrd, a
conservative critic of many ad
ministration policies, to under
take the inquiry through the
Joint Committee on Reduction
of Nonessential Expenditures
which he heads.
Will Publish Reports
For a time it appeared pos
sible that there might be col
lateral hearings by both the
Symington and Byrd groups,
but Senator Byrd made it clear
his committee will not play a
direct role in the inquiry.
President Kennedy called
for an investigation by a Senate
Armed Services Subcommittee
on stockpiling, which Senator
Symington heads. Subsequently
the White House said it was!
up to the Senate to decide
which committee should do the
job.
Senator Byrd said his com
mittee —which does not have
authority to sponsor legislation
—will continue to assemble and
publish reports about the stock
pile holdings. He has asked Mr.
Kennedy to lift the secret clas
sification which covers about s6l
billion of the materials on hand.
“We intend to make all the
1 information we have available
to Senator Symington’s com
jmittee," Senator Byrd said.
“We want to be helpful In every
I way. There will be no conflict I
between us. What I want is
, results.”
Least Impact on Markets
Senator Byrd said it is his
understanding that President
Kennedy has authority to sell
non-agricultural products in
the strategic stockpile. But he
( sa’d he thinks Congress ought
to direct the sale of the $3.4
billion in supplies Mr. Kennedy
said have accumulated above
national defense needs.
"If these materials are not
needed, the President should
move to sell them off in the
best way possible,” Senator
Byrd said. “Os course, this
DEAF MAN PERFECTS
SMALLEST HEARING AID
Silver Spring, Md.—(Special)—A remarkable midget hear
ing aid has been perfected by a man who has been hard of
hearing for nearly ten years.
This small aid has no dangling cords or separate transmitting
units and represents a most unusual idea and design in a prod
uct for the hard of hearing.
It is especially made for those people who can hear but not
understand. This new hearing instrument provides “ear-level”
hearing with the wearer picking up speech, sounds, television
and radio at his ear rather than at a transmitter located in the
wearer’s clothing.
Due to the use of 4 transistors, the user cost is extremely
low and the instrument weighs approximately % ounce. It is
about the size of a sewing thimble.

would have to be a gradual op
eration designed to have the
least possible effect on the ma
terials markets.”
Senator Byrd has been given
confidential reports on the
products which have been pur
chased, some of them under
10-year contracts made under
previous administrations. But
he said he has had to keep this
information "locked up in a
safe.”
“There is no reason that I
can see why the public should
not have this information, just
as the President,” Senator
Byrd added.
$1 Billion in Two Metals
From other sources it was
learned that more than $1 bil
lion has been invested in two
metals, one of which now is
said to have little strategic
value.
Five separate programs now
contribute to the stockpile,
which includes such varied
items are aluminum, agar, tin,
copper, lead, zinc, platinum,
bauxite, silk, castor oil, indus
trial diamonds, graphite, na
tural rubber, sperm oil and
opium.
Senator Byrd said he assumes
the Symington committee will
go not only into the question
of whether some of the prod
ucts now have any real strategic
value “but also whether any
purchases were made for the
| purpose of holding up prices.”
President Kennedy called the
stockpile program a "potential
source of excessive and uncon
scionable profits.’’ Senator John
J. 'Williams, Republican of
Delaware, a member of Senator
Byrd’s committee, told the
Senate Friday there had been
“unwarranted windfall profits
to certain mining companies”
jin connection with the pro
gram.
Senator Byrd said his com
mittee has been supplied with
no information about profits.
Senator Symington told re
porters he has received no re
ports of dishonesty in connec
tion with the program.
