Argentine President
Destroys Peron Party;
Reinstates 'La Prensa'

Edgar Faure




Move; Orders Election


Wipes Out
BUENOS AIRES (te) - Argen-
tina's provisional government yest-
erday wiped out two legacies of
the Juan D. Peron dictatorship-
the party he created to maintain
absolute power and the expropria-
tion of the newspaper La Prensa.
President Pedro Aramburu, in
office only 18 days, issued two de-
crees, one ordering the Peronista
party dissolved and the other re-
storing La Prensa to its owners,
the Paz family, from whom it was
taken almost five years ago.
The Peronista party was organ-
ized at a mass meeting in July,
1949. Peron then had been. presi-
dent three years, supported by the
Labor party and a leftwing splin-
ter group of the Radical party.
The new party was dedicated to
him as its sole leader.
Estimated Two Per Cent
Its exact membership never was
known, but was estimated at 250,-
000 to 300,000, or about 2 per cent
of Argentina's population. As
Peron's power increased member-
ship became a. privilege for aver-
age citizens and brought any who
joined special advantages.
It became a smoothly operating
political machine'which smothered
all political opposition. When
Peron fell in the military revolt
last September, Peronistas held all
the Senate seats, all but 12 of 155
seats in the Chamber of Deputies,
sat on the benches of nearly all
the nation's courts and held most
of the provincial and local govern-
ment posts.
Its dissolution by decree, follow-
ing the government's seizure of the
General Confederation of Labor,
smashes both main arms of
Peron's regime.
La Prensa's expropriation by the
Peron government in 1951 was an-
other step in his relentless sup-
pression of all opponents. Under
the editor and director, Dr. Alberto
Gainza Paz, La Prensa was the
largest Spanish language news-
paper in the world, widely recog-
nized abroad for its independence.
Newsprint Seized
It was critical of Peron and in
1948 he launched a campaign to
force it to support him by seizing
part of its newsprint. Two years
later, he seized all its newsprint
stocks and denied it the right to
import more.
The campaign failed to silence
the newspaper and, in January,
1951, the Peronista News Vendors'
Union refused to distribute it. This
forced the big daily to suspend
publication. Three months later a
congressional commision seized
control of its property and records,
charging it with "anti-Argentine"
activities, The following month
Congress voted to expopriate La
Prensa and its was turned over to
the CGT.
Strike Affects
Detroit Papers
DETROIT ()-The AFL Ster-
eotypers Union tonight voted to
strike against Detroit's three daily
newspapers tomorrow morning.
Affected would be the morning
Detroit Free Press and the after-
noon Detroit News and Detroit
Times. The three papers have a
combined daily circulation of
about 1,300,000.
A two-year contract between the
union and the Detroit Newspaper
publishers Assn., representing the

three dailies, expired at midnight
yesterday. '
The publishers association said
the union has asked that an extra
,crew be provided to process color
plates, with a minimum of a full
day's pay, and that overtime be
paid for handling any material

Reductions in Traffic
DeathsIs S-D Day Goal
CHICAGO (P)-Today is S-D Day - the day you try harder
than ever to stay alive and save other lives.
The safe driving day- campaign is a mammoth effort to cut
traffic deaths through extra caution. Each motorist and pedestrian
plays a vital role.
The nation has come to the eve of S-D Day with a 1955 highway
safety record that gives safety experts little to cheer about.

Lewis Demands CIO
Repayment of Old Loan
NEW YORK ()-United Mine Workers chieftain John L. Lewis
yesterday demanded that the CIO repay an old loan from his union.
He was told "the CIO owes you no money."
Lewis' action was viewed as an attempt to throw a last-minute
monkey wrench into the smoothly moving merger plans of the AFL
and CIO.
He dunned'the CIO for $1,665,000 he claimed the UMW loaned the
CIO in its struggling infancy in the late 1930s.
Lewis Wants Money
And Lewis said he wanted the money before the CIO was
"liquidated" in the forthcoming merger. The labor bodies vote on
the merger in separate conven- ,-
tions starting today. The combi- * ,

Patrols Cut...
NEW CASTLE, Ind. - National
Guard patrols were cut from 90
to 30 here today, and Adj. Gen.
H. A. Doherty said some troops
will be kept on until strikers have
begun returning to jobs with Per-
fect Circle Corp.
Guarding against any recur-
rence of the riot at the little piston
ring foundry Oct. 5, Gen. Doherty
said the newly arrived unit of 25
Guardsmen from Greensburg prob-
ably will stay here until next Tues-
day or Wednesday. He said he
expects the first callback of strik-
ers to come Monday.
Doherty said he set up that time-
table after consulting with Mayor
Paul F. McCormack, whose appeal
first brought troops to the foundry
the night after the riot. Guards-
men have been here all the time
since then, except for six days
before Thanksgiving. -
The adjutant general said Gov.
Craig also approved continuing
the patrols.

More Violence .. .
WASHINGTON - Government
officials who keep tabs on, labor
affairs say there has been a notable
increase in labor violence this
year. They add that it is still
a comparative rarity.
More instances of beatings,
shootings, property damage and
picket line disturbances seem to
have flared up in 1955 than in
several years gone by.

seas needy.
The action came after R. Nor-

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The

At least six children in two
families and three women were
among the known dead.
Eight others were injured as

"If anyone thinks S-D Day is
just a lot of shouting about noth-
ing, stop and think about these
figures," said Ned H. Dearborn,
safety council president.
Lack of Responsibility
"S-D Day is a one-day effort to
wake people up. The auto is here
to stay, but I have my doubts
about a lot of drivers if they keep
up this flagrant lack of responsi-
bility on the highways."
The President's Committee for
Traffic Safety designated today as
S-D Day for two purposes: To
achieve a sharp reduction in traf-
fic accidents on that day and every
day, and to demonstrate that safe
driving is a necessity on ordinary
weekdays as well as on weekends
and during holiday periods.
Special Effort
Police departments and civic or-
ganizations across the country will
make a special' effort today to
cut down traffic deaths. Banners
urging motorists to drive safely
have been draped along many
streets. President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower appealed to all Americans
to help reduce accidents.
The Associated Press will con-
duct a continuous nationwide sur-
vey of traffic deaths throughout
the day. An AP spot survey on
Nov. 17-a comparable day--show-
ed 69 traffic fatalities.

The British Red Cross received

Tenneson was one of 21 turn-

this on Jan. 27, 1954.

"You have achieved the momen-
tary ripple of publicity which you
sought to relieve the boredom of
your isolation from the demo-
cratic labor movement," Carey
told Lewis.
Carey made it clear the CIO has
no intention of meeting Lewis' de-
mand. Other CIO spokesmen said
the funds advanced by the UMW
had always been considered gifts
to the CIO.
Lewis Broke Away
Lewis at the time was head of
both the UMW and the CIO. It
was he who broke away from the
parent AFL and led the formation
of the CIO as a rival organization.
Later he took his mine workers
into the independent status they
retain to this day.
Lewis is known to be against
the AFL-CIO merger. He has
called it a "rope of sand." His

Faure appeared to have turned a
seeming defeat into victory. He
has been campaigning all along
for early elections, but the devious
approach to them was a surprise
even in French politics.
The Assembly gave Faure a vote
of no-confidence Tuesday, usually
the signal for the government's
immediate resignation. But the
size of the Assembly vote against
him brought into play ,an obscure
constitutional provision permitting
the Cabinet to order dissolutions.
Unprecedented Decision
The unprecedented decision was
announced yesterday following a
3 i/-hour Cabinet session at the
Elysee Palace, the French White
House. No date was given for the
elections, but they must come be-
tween 20 and 30 days after the
dissolution order is handed down
