THE SUNDAY STAR Washington, 0. C„ March 19, 1962 Army Tightens Grip On Guatemala Capital GUATEMALA, Mar. 17 (AP),—The army tightened its Eip on this crisis-torn capital tonight and opposition political aders were reported considering an appeal by President Miguel Ydigoras to seek an end to a student-led revolt. Scattered shooting incidents, but no major trouble marked the fifth day of the crisis as heavily armed soldiers put the city under virtual martial law. Earlier clashes and disorders killed about 20 persons and wounded at least 500.' Th newspaper Las Hora said a check of police lists showed more than 800 persons jailed. Leftist leaders of two oppo sition parties were arrested in a raid and then released after being taken to President Ydi goras. One of the leaders said Mr. Ydigoras wanted to make a deal to settle the crisis and the offer was being considered. Election Frauds Charged The students launched vio lent protests against alleged frauds in last December’s elec tions in which Mr. Ydigoras’ Conservative Party scored an easy victory. Mr. Ydigoras con tends the complaints are base less and says Communists and Castro elements embarked on disorder to cover their disap pointment at the election re sults. In the police raid on the po litical meeting the leader of the Guatemalan Christian Democracy Party, two former deputies of that party and two former deputies of the leftist National Liberation Movement were arrested. Mario Mendez Montenegro, former presidential condidate of the leftist Revolutionary Party, was reported to have driven up to the house just as the raid took place but escaped. With the city under a mili tary curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., the army drafted postal, telegraph, power company and bus line workers to keep es sential services moving, as more and more employes went on strike in sympathy with the students. Half-Holiday Announced The government announced a half holiday for its workeds as reports of absenteeism in gov ernment offices mounted. Gov ernment offices normally close at noon Saturday. Despite militarization of pri vately owned city bus lines, fewer buses than usual made the rounds. Many businesses closed and other half lowered their shut ters. Merchants said many of their employes could not get transportation to work or were afraid to come out. Because of the emergency, a scheduled lottery drawing was postponed. Nine of the Nation’s 18 ra dio stations were off the air in protest against censorship. One station manager said police killed five persons in a crowd that gathered when police raid ed his station because it made an uncensored broadcast. Blood Donors Sought Stations that continued on the air broadcast appeals for blood donors and special An nouncements from the govern ment. Telegraph service was mili tarized after the Association of Telegraph Operators denounced violent polioe action. The gov- THE FEDERAL SPOTLIGHT Court Ruling Saves Jobs for 2,200, Upsets Navy's Firing Technique By JOSEPH YOUNG Star Staff Writer In an important decision, the Federal court here has cracked down on an oft-used device in Government to fire employes by transferring their functions to other units. Judge Edward M. Curran of District Court has ordered the retention of 2,200 Navy shop analysts and schedulers in var ious Navy shipyards through out the country. Judge Curran said the Navy had failed to comply with the Veterans Preference Act which requires that when a Federal function is transferred the em ployes performing the function must also be transferred before additional employes are hired or assigned from any source. Judge Curran set aside a Civil Service Commission rul ing that a “function is a mis- i sion” and that because several Navy units were engaged in the' same “mission” a transfer of functions did not occur. The Veterans Preference Act provision protecting Federal i employes against loss of job when their functions are trans ferred elsewhere applies to non-veterans as well as to veterans. The case was financed by the National Association of Naval Shop Analysts and Schedulers and Shop Planners. The attorney representing them was Donald M. Murtha. ** * * FEDERAL PAYROLL HERE —The Federal payroll for the Washington area—the salaries of Government, judicial and legislative employes—is near the $2 billion-a-year mark. The latest figure is $1,807,536,000. This does not include the many millions in salaries drawn by private industry employes’ working for private contractors engaged in putting up new Government buildings here, etc. It’s easy to see what a tre mendous impact the Federal Government has on the econ omy of the Washington area. ** * « SCOPE— Since Federal clas sified and postal employes still 1 ernment announced the associ- I ation was dissolved. The conservative newspaper Impacto published a resolution from the municipal corporation of Guatemala denouncing abuses “by public forces and shock groups” brought into the capital to restore order. The resolution said these forces “made use of procedures un worthy of civilized people and of responsible government.” The newspaper’s editorial declared “Ydigoras must be forced to resign. He will not resign of his own volition. It is a pity because an immediate departure would be better in stead of falling by force.” 500 Wounded Treated Major hospitals reported 500 wounded persons had been treated since the start of the disturbances and that seven died. The general hospital said 95 per cent of the injured there were suffering from gunshot wounds. The hospitals said they treat ed 153 wounded persons yester day. The newspaper Impacto said five were killed. Doctors said it was possible that all the dead were not taken to morgues and that some wounded may not have been treated at hospitals. Seven policemen were re ported beaten by an angry crowd at a cemetery yesterday during burial services for some victims of street fights. The government said two po licemen were killed in yester day’s disorders, in which a bus, an automobile and a jeep were burned. Troops stalked two guerrila rebel bands still roaming in east and northeast Guatemala. One band was led by Carlos Paz Tejada, defense minister under pro-Communist Presi dent Jacobo Arbenz Guzman, who was overthrown by an in vading force of rebels in 1954. Mr. Arbenz has been reported a guest of the Fidel Castro gov ernment in Cuba for months. The other band was reported to include remnants of former army officers calling them selves the 13th of November Movement, who attempted a leftist revolt at Puerto Bar rios and Zacapa on November 13, 1960. Leftists Assail Ydigoras President Ydigoras has been under mounting attack from leftists since anti-Castro Cu bans were trained in Guate malan camps for the Bay of Pigs invasion last April. Identical Brothers Wed Identical Twins LONDON, Mar. 17 (AP).— Identical twin sisters married identical twin brothers at Dur ham, England, today. Ann Callaghan, 20, was mar ried to Brian Jones, 23, and in the other half of the double wedding Kathleen Callaghan was married to David Jones. deal with Congress on matters of salaries and fringe bene fits, many Government workers are asking just how much im pact President Kennedy’s new labor - management relations order for the Federal service will have. A. E. Casgrain, president of the American Federation of Government Employes Council of Defense Lodges, declares that the labor-management program will have wide scope. Mr. Casgrain said employe unions will deal with manage ment on working conditions such as use of office space, light, air conditioning, cafe teria and restaurant services, rest periods, scheduling of hours, parking, sanitary condi tions, etc. Also, wage board rates (for blue collar workers), job classi fications for classified employes and job assignments, promotion plans, training opportunities and career development. ! In addition, grievance pro cedures, counseling, health services, physical exams in cluding health protection shots. Then, too, Mr. Casgrain lists welfare services and use of non-appropriated funds for recreation, health or welfare services, credit union or other banking facilities, safety pro grams to prevent on-the-job and off-the-job accidents among employes, traffic regu lations and parking privileges. Civilian-military staffing ; problems, employe utilization . and allocation of overtime and , overtime rates are also matters I which Mr. Casgrain feels are subjects for negotiation be . i tween employe unions and .'management. »♦ ♦ * i AID REPORT— FowIer Ham ilton, administrator of the si Agency for International De velopment, has told a House .

Second Floor CENTRAL RE. 7-0975 Above Metropolitan Theatre CHARGE Buddy of Ted Kennedy Runs for House Seat By DAVID S. BRODER Star Staff Writer The epidemic itch for public office that afflicts the Ken nedys and so many of their friends has spread now to Houston, Tex., where Claude E. Hooten, jr., a Harvard chum and frequent traveling compa nion of Edward M. (Ted) Ken nedy, is running for the House of Representatives. Mr. Hooten, a wealthy, 30- year-old home builder and real estate developer, filed against incumbent Democratic Repre sentative Bob Casey last month, then buzzed off for a quick tour of Europe and the Middle East with Teddy, who has Just an nounced his own senatorial candidacy in Massachusetts. Now Mr. Hooten is back home again and he said yesterday things are “going very well” in a race where most neutral ob serve™ concede him only the remotest chance. Mr. Hooten is running in the 22d district—the wealthy, con servative Southern half of Har ris County, which went almost 3-to-2 Republican in the 1960 presidential race. Most Texas politicians figure Mr. Hooten’s close ties with the Kennedys and his indorsement by the lo- America’s first Motor Inn Grandpa May Have Driven Here in His “Duryea” It’s been a tradition at our inn for the guests to register the make of car in which they arrive.

White House spokesmen dis claim any part in the Hooten candidacy, as they do in the case of Ted Kennedy’s run for the Senate.
