President Peron charged yesterday that former U.S. Ambassador
Spruille Braden was the "originator" of Friday's luckless revolt in
which hundreds of soldiers and politicians were arrested.
Sources close to the army said 200 officers and men had been
seized in a relentless police dragnet over the weekend in a move to
clush out vestiges of opposition to the Peron regime before the Nov.
MANY LEADERS in the opposition Radical, Nationalist, Com-
munist, Socialist, and conservative parties were listed by political
circles as in custody.
Among those arrested by secret police, informants said, was

been advocated at a roundtable
meeting in 1949 sponsored by the
state department. The step was
one of 10 proposed by Owen Lat-

professor and Asian expert, who
was present at the roundtable.
Stassen said Lattimore also ad-

that there was "much evidence"
