Peron Bids for Power
In Argentine Elections
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Mar. 17 CAP'.—Exiled Dictator
Juan D. Peron makes an indirect but strong bid for a comeback
in elections tomorrow for a dozen provincial governors and half
the Argentine House of Deputies.
The balloting will amount to a virtual showdown between
Mr. Peron, deposed in 1955, and President Arturo Frondizi,
though neither is a candidate.!
Mr. Peron’s fate rests in. the |
hands of his followers, Com
munists and their fellow travel
ers. who have harassed Mr.
Frondizi since he took office in
For the first time since Mr.j
Peron’s forced departure, his
followers are running for public
office, under a host of newly
created parties. The Peron!
party supporters had cast blank
ballots in past elections.
“Our goal is to bring Peron
back," said Andres Framini, the
chief office seeker. “He wants
to return and will return. We
are fighting for this.”
Strife Might Follow
A landslide vote for the
Peronist “Justicialist Front”
could mean chaos and even
armed strife in Argentina, a
key country in the S2O billion
United States Alliance for
Progress program.
Mr. Frondizi has placed his
prestige and strength behind
candidates for his intransigent
Radical Party. He says a clear
cut victory for them will mean
peace and order as the nation
prepares to elect a new Presi
dent two years from now.
The president has cam
paigned throughout the coun
try and plugged his candidates
in weekly fireside chats for
the last month and a half.
About 9 million voters are
expected to cast ballots in 18
provinces for 84 members of
the House of Deputies and a
dozen governors.
The focal point, however, is
in populous Buenos Aires where
Mr. Framini seeks the office of
governor, a post second in pres
tige only to the presidency, i:
Peron-Picked Candidate
The 47-year-old labor leader,
who quit school in the 6th
graded to work in a soap sac-l
tory, was hand picked by Mr.
Peron during a series of talks
in Madrid, where the ex-dicta
tor lives in exile. His chief rival
is 43-year-old Guillermo Acuna
Anzorena, former labor minis
Virulent speechmaking in the
campaign by Mr. Framini and
his followers led Interior Min
ister Alfredo Vitolo to warn
that if a Peronist victory is
followed by subversive activities
