U.S. Severs Help,
Breaks Relations

country have been suspended, as Col. Osvaldo Lopez Arellano tools

An army communique under Arellano's signature asserted that the,

Outer Space
Ban Awaited
By The Associated Press,
ed States, British and Soviet for-
eign ministers reached into outer
space Thursday night for an
"agreement" that could be an-
nounced in concluding their week
of talks here on what disarma-
ment steps might follow the limit-
ed nuclear test ban treaty.
Secretary of State Dean Rusk
said Thursday the announced
r agreement in principle-to bar or-
biting of atomic-armed satellites
-will probably be translated into
a United States-Soviet pledge'late
next week, perhaps when Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gro-
myko sees President John F. Ken-
nedy Thursday.
Gromyko said in a separate in-
terview that he will be ready to
make the pledge for Russia when
he goes to the White House. "I
cannot speak for the American
side, but I am ready to formalize
it at any time," he said.
United States sources revealed
that the present idea is to have
the United States and the Soviet
Union, the two powers now able
to whirl objects in orbit around
$ the earth, issue separate but par-
allel statements declaring their
policy against arming satellites
with nuclear warheads.
Other nations could make sim-
ilar pledges when they reach the
development state in outer space
that the two major powers have,
, these sources said.

rest. He will act as provisiona:
president without the junta that
usually goes along with Latin
American military coups.
Soldiers Guard Buildings
The proclamation declared the
nation was calm. Stores reopened,
but soldiers still guarded govern-
ment buildings.
Meanwhile, United States Press
Officer Robert McCloskey said sus-
pension of diplomatic relations
with Honduras was almost auto-
matic because the government that
the United States had recognized
"ceased to exist."
The State Department describ-
ed the seizure of power Thursday
as an "unfortunate turn of events.
A spokesman from the department
said that the United States be-
lieves the military take-over weak-
ens stability in the Caribbean area,
and hurts the interests of the
United States and other Western
Hemisphere nations and the aims
of the Alliance for Progress.
The aid programs involved are
relatively small. Since the begin-
ning of July 1961 the United States
has promised aid to Honduras to-
taling $18 million and of that
amount $11 million has been de-
livered, making the suspension ef-
fective over $7 million worth.
Aid Over 12 Years
Officials said the military as-
sistance program for the little
country has totaled approximately
$4.5 million over the past 12 years
of which $3.5 million has been de-
"livered leaving approximately $1
million now suspended.
Announcement of the revolt's
success was a disappointing epi-
logue to frantic behind-the-scenes
American efforts to head off the
coup, which came only eight days
after a strikingly similar military
upheaval in the Dominican Repub-
It was confirmed that Maj. Gen.
Theodore Bogart- commander of
United States forces in the South
Atlantic, was rushed to Tegucigal-
pa Oct. 1 in a futile effort to per-
suade Lopez from carrying out the
seizure of power. Bogart, however;
was unable to influence Arellano.
Take Time
McCloskey made clear in the
statement that the United States
intends to take its time in deciding
what to do about rule by Arellano.
McCloskey also indicated that
the Kennedy administration is be-
ginning to look with increasing
favpr on proposals from other
Western Hemisphere countries for
a foreign minister's conference to
consider measures to discourage
military coups.
"I think we would be inclined
to be in favor of it," he told a news

For Council

Ecumenical Council yesterday too
Tup a matter left hanging since th
last great Roman Catholic Coun
cil 93 years ago-papal authorit
and the power of bishops.
The 2300 prelates meeting in S
Peter's Basilica rounded out th
first week of the resumed counci
session by going to work on ques
tions that ultimately could decen
tralize Vatican power and mak
the Papal Curia an instrument o

The views and writings of count

Stress Papacy
The 1870 Ecumenical Counci
defined that a Pope is infallibl
in solemn decrees affecting fait
and morals. It also stressed th
primacy or first-place position o
the Pope. Political events in Ital
brought that council to an abrup
halt before it could take up a cor
ollary thesis on how bishops asa
body share in papal authority.
The heart of the schema "D
Ecclesia" (concerning the church)
deals with this matter-what ie
called the collegiality (collectiv
authority) of Catholicism's bish
Theologians here explained tha

ity, nor does it add something new
to the bishops' authority. "It i
not so much conferral of new
powers on the bishops as the ex-
tension of powers they already
have but do not exercise," said
one theologian.
But this is where the battle is
expected to be drawn between two
schools of thought-is the theo-
logical question of whether Christ
intended power to be invested in
St. Peter alone, when Christ
founded-His Church, or whether
He intended ecclesiastical power to
be shared by all 12 apostles.
"What the council is now under-
taking is an attempt to reestablish
a proper balance between the two
stresses, which can be described
as two manifestations of a single
power," Rev. John Long, a New
York Jesuit, commented.
Father Long said that even
among the orthodox there exists a
feeling that orthodoxy has stress-
ed the power of the local bishop
too much, thus preventing the or-
thodox from influencing the world
as they might.
"Maybe this council can present
to the orthodox not merely a
clarification of our own (Roman
Catholic) viewpoint but addition-
ally at least one way to solve the
problem the orthodox themselves
are posing," he added.

But Couve de Murville is the only
