On Urisings

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-Diplomats here
are considering calling a Pan-
American foreign ministers con-
ference to deal with military coups'
in the Western hemisphere, but its
fate is uncertain.
The proposal was sparked by the
overthrow Tuesday of the Domini-
can Republic's elected government
headed by President Juan Bosch.
State Department press officer
Richard I. Phillips said the United
States had been informed Vene-
zuela and Costa Rica may call for
a foreign ministers meeting.
The United States officially
withheld any decision on whether
it would support such a call. But
sources close to the Organization
of American States said United
States support would be forthcom-
ing if a majority of OAS members
favored a meeting of American
foreign policy chiefs.
The view of United States dip-
lomats is that sometimes seizure
of power in one country serves to
encourage dissidents in some other
country to take the final step of
instituting a takeover themselves.

nism and bringing the country to
chaos.
In Control
The three taking over control
of the Dominican government are
Ramon Tapia Espinal, Emilio de
Los Santos and Manuel Tavares
Espaillat.
"They are the provisional gov-
ernment," said Gen. Antonio Im-
bert Barrera, leader of the coup.
Imbert Barrera was one of the
men who tumbled Generalissimo
Rafael Trujillo/from power in 1961
after 31 years as dictator.
'Everyone Happy'
He said of the coup, "Everyone
is happy with the step we took.
You can see it all over the coun-
try."
The military leaders, including
Bosch's Minister of the Armed
Forces Victor Elby Vinas Roman,
said they acted against the presi-
dent primarily because of the
Communist issue. Bosch had re-
jected a demand the military made
in July that he crack down on
leftists. ,
There was also widespread dis-
satisfaction with a recent law con-
fiscating all property of .Domini-
cans who had prospered under
Trujillo,' and a fear that Bosch
was leading the country to war
with President Francois Duvalier
of neighboring Haiti.

u.s., Spai
Extend Pact
For Defense
UNITED NATIONS () -The
United States and Spain agreed
yesterday to extend United States
base rights in Spain for another
five years, with the United States
giving Spain continued aid and a
bigger role in defense consulta-
tions.
The agreement was announced
by Secretary of State Dean Rusk
and Spanish Foreign Minister Fer-
nando Maria Castiella only six
hours before the scheduled mid-
night expiration of the 10-year-old
pact for the bases.
The United States has operated
three large air bases and a naval
base in Spain under the agree-
ment. United States strategists
figure the strategic bases are an
important part of Western de-
fense.
In negotiations leading up to
the five-year renewal, Spain want-
ed continued aid and a greater rec-
ognition of its defense role.
Rusk and Castiella exchanged
notes at a public signing ceremony
in which:
1) Rusk promised the United
States will provide assistance to
Spanish defense efforts "at an ap-
propriate level" and the United
States export-import bank, which
loaned more than $200 million for
Spain's economic development
over the past 10 years, is prepared
to lend $100 million more over the
next several years.
2) The two sides agreed to set
up a joint United States-Spanish
"Consultative Committee on De-
fense Matters" to be headquarter-
ed at Madrid and hold monthly
meetings.

vey team, was pleased with what
he saw and heard on a swing from
Nha Trang, 200 miles northeast of
Saigon, to the ancient capital of
Hue, 300 miles farther north.
Assistant Secretary of Defense
Arthur Sylvester told newsmen
that United States and Vietna-
mese officers in the field advised
McNamara the Buddhist crisis has
had no effect on the' scale of mili-
tary operations or the morale of
Vietnamese troops.
Hit Soldiers
In a pre-election debate, United
States Ambassador Henry Cabot
Lodge and Mrs. Nhu dueled at long
range about her description of
United States junior officers here
as irresponsible "little soldiers of
fortune."
Lodge charged the remark was
cruel and insulting.
In his first public political state-
ment directed against a member
of Diem's official family since he
arrived here, Lodge said, "It is in-
comprehensible to me how anyone
can speak so cruelly. It is a shock-
ing statement. These juniors offi-
cers are risking their lives every
day. Some of them have been kill-
ed side by side with their Vietna-
mese comrades. These men should
be thanked and not insulted."

TO DECIDE MONDAY:,
Democrats Delay Action
On Rights Commission
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-The Senate Democratic leadership decided yes-
terday to postpone senatorial action on extending the Civil Rights
Commission until Monday-the last official day of its existence.
The commission must file its final report then and technically
go out of business, although it will have an additional 60 days in
which to wind up its affairs. In the meantime Congress can act on the
extension. Acting majority leader Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn)

Senate Approves
Military Pay Hike
WASHINGTON ()-Unanimous
Senate passage yesterday sent to
the House, for expected quick ap-
proval there, a pay increase'start-
Ing next month for practically all
members of the armed forces with
over two years service. It would
provide the fighting forces with
their first general pay boost since
1958, at an annual cost of $1.2
billion a year.

told newsmen he understood that<
even if the Senate had acted yes-
terday the House would not be able
to take up the bill before next
Thursday.
No Resistance
Humphrey said -he did not ex-
pect any major resistance by
Southern senators despite their
opposition to the creation of the
commission in the 1957 Civil
Rights Act and to the two-year
last-minute extensions in 1959 and
1961.,
But Sen. Richard B. Russell (D-
Ga). leader of Southern forces, let
it be known they would not give
unanimous consent to laying aside
the Agriculture Department ap-
propriation bill now before the
Senate to take up extension of the
commission.
Air Force Bias
Meanwhile, Rep. Joe D. Waggon-
er Jr. (D-La) demanded access to
an Air Force directive which he
described as "clearly calling for
discrimination against Negro and
Jewish members" of the service.
Waggoner said the regulation
covers a policy of not assigning
Negro and Jewish Air Force per-
sonnel to certain countries which
the congressman did not name.
In Richmond, the Rev. Martin
Luther King Jr. called for a na-
tionwide boycott of Christmas gift
buying in commemoration of the
six Negro children killed during
racial disorders in Birmingham.
But the proposal received a cold
reception just a short time later
from Roy Wilkins, executive secre-
tary of the National Association
for the Advancement of Colored
People.
