Mility Soluion Seen
Probable in Guatemala




Associated Press News Analyst


Despite all the political scurry-
ing, and the sketchy reports of
what is actually going on in Guate-
mala, the situation appears now
to be one which will be decided
When Russia vetoed a proposal
in the U.N. Security Council to
refer the case of the Organization
of American States she confirmed
her interest in the Arbenz govern-
ment at Guatemala City and there-
by did that government great
harm in the eyes of other Latin
American states. Arbenz has been
trying hard to keep his skirts clear
of a link with Russia at this mo-
ment. He has been playing the old
tune that the United States is in-
terfering with a Guatemalan in-
ternal situation, and wants the re-
bellion, led by refugees based on
Honduras, to appear a joint Amer-
ican-Honduran-Nicaraguan project.
The State Department has been
at great pains to avoid the im-
pression that it instigated the re-
bellion or gives it material support.
It is known, however, to be hope-
ful that the invasion from Hon-
duras will touch off a general up-
rising against theCmmnt-
backed government. The depart-
ment has given out reports that
there are internal uprisings de-
signed to tie in with the invasion.
It would be strange, however,
if United States agents, given sev-
eral weeks in which to operate
after the discovery that Guate-
mala was buying arms behind the
Iron Curtain, had not played some
role in encouraging a revolt at
this time.
The Arbenz government obvi-
ously felt the revolt would come,

and has been busily turning the
Communist cadres throughout the
country into a sort of militia. In
this, according to the very sketchy
reports which have been coming
through a strict censorship, they
seem to have gotten the jump.
The government also has been
making wholesale arrests designed
to disrupt anti-Communist organ-
izations and rob them of leader-
Long-worried by Communist ac-
tivity in Guatemala, discovery of
her dealings with the Communist
sphere threw Washington Into one
of the greatest flaps caused by
an Incident of that size in a long
time. One of the great fears was
that the United States might be-
come involved in an old-fashioned
Latin .American fracas, with the
added complicatIon of an interna-
tional Communist I i n k, which
would prove to be a mess similar
to the one France is in in Indo-
Another danger Is that Nicara-
gua and Honduras, already at
great odds with Guatemala City,
will be drawn into the fighting di-
But the die probably will be cast
by the Guatemalan army, largest
and best armed in Central Amer-
ica. Before the rebellion started
army leaders were reported about
ready to act against Arbenz.
Whether they are now refusing his
orders to act against the rebels is
the major question. So far, the
army has taken no major action
to halt the rebels. This could be
due to army dissaffection or to
strategy which would suck the in-
vaders into the country and meet
them nearer the capital.
