Mexico Mexican President Adolfo Lopez Mateos discussed the piece of land a few months ago with President Kennedy The several hundred acres of territory is by virtue of a capricious turn the Rio Grande took nearly 60 years ago Mexico wants the area back It was reported in Washington recently that a settlement in the long standing boundary dispute is a distinct possibility before the end of the year The dispute had its origins back whenthe United States was occu pying itself with wrapping up the Civil War At the time the luck less Maximilian was seeking to keep the shppery crown of Mex ico on his head In 18G4 the Rio Grande escaped its banks and roamed freely in Mexico Then the river re turned to its bed But it didnt return to the exact spot it left It re entered a little North Iowa Mostly

trees There wasnt a house there says Cleofas Caller os noted El Paso historian and an expert on his land segment The area eventually gained a name El the Spanish word for brush El Paso expanded and even tually people built houses here Now a very vocal but unorgan ized group in Mexico clamors for its return to Mexico Members of the group consider El Cha mizal a point of national honor The two presidents discussed the matter when Kennedy visited Mex ico last spring On Sept 1 Lopez Mateos said in his state of the nation speech that nothing would contribute more to relations be tween the United States and Mex ico than a settlement of the El Chamizal problem The presidents turned the touchy problem over to administrative aides Considering that the countries are on good terms and individuals on the border get along well sev eral solutions are offered frequent ly by citizens on both sides of the Rio Grande One would be to turn the area over to Mexico Another would give Mexico land somewhere else of about the same size A third is purchase of the land from Mex ico Uopei Mateos speaking through Foreign Minister Manuel Tello said last summer that purchase or exchange of land would be un satisfactory Mexico was awarded the land by arbitration in 1911 However the US member of the arbitra tion board dissented saying no one could determine the location of the original bed of the river There the matter rested Even now no one can determine the original size of E Chamizal The old river bed is built up with nomes businesses and streets Es timates of the size range from 400

it was going to flood the market with hundreds of thousands of deliberately misprinted Dag Hammarskjold stamps to undercut the inflated value of a few hundred sold by mistake The announcement came after disclosures that at least 400 of the original 120 million stamps in the commemorative issue were run through a color overlay press upside down The effect would be to drastically slash the value

Guam damages in the hundreds of millions of dol lars and 45000 persons homeless Acting Gov Manuel Guerrero described the destruction a much more serious that o 1944 when US troops liberated the island from Japan Hundreds were reported injured but no exact count has come from the western Pacific island stil out of communications except foi a few emergency circuits Hospi medical centers handled a steady stream of casualties sparse reports said The typhoon crashed across the tiny island hub of US military defenses in the western Pacific late Sunday night and Monday morning with winds reaching 174 miles an hour As Guam dug out of the blitz Karen rumbled across the Paci fic toward Okinawa and impor tant American military bases there Had Guam not had a threeday warning that the monstrous tropi cal worst in the is lands coming countless numbers would have died the Navy has said More than half the 40000 na tives and 30000 military person nel and dependents were left homeless All civilian communica tions facilities were knocked out schools were destroyed and 90 per cent of all civilian buildings on he island were damaged beyond repair Guerreros report said Give your fair share THE COMMUNITY CHEST Hiss commented that the pro ests had been organized The protests he said were similar in form I dont regard it as particularly representative The more thoughtful people dont complain about an event like this only those who have been stirred up So I havent taken it very seri ously He said he had not been vindic tive toward Nixon on the show and asserted Certainly it is no fun to take a kick at somebody who is slipping Nixon was a congressman serv ing on the HOUSJ Committee on UnAmerican Activities when Hiss then a highranking State Department official appeared be fore the committee in 1948 and first denied he was part of a Com miinist espionage ring The same denial before a grand jury later led to perjury charges Democratic Sen Thomas J Dodd of Connecticut sent a protest telegram to ABC and the Federal Communications Commission ex presshighis personal disgust at the networks allowing Hiss to sit in Nixon He said he asked the FCC to investigate this entire incident Dodd said he has had many political differences with Nixon a Republican but what is in volved here has nothing to do with politics It seems to me incredible that millions of viewers who tuned in to see a Veterans Day program about our armed forces should have been treated to the spectacle of a distinguished American pub lic servant being vilified by a con victed perjurer and a traitor to this country Dodd said The program entitled The Po litical Obituary of Richard M Nixon was aired in place of a scheduled ABC program about the armed forces Both taped pro grams featured Howard K Smith as commentator The man who had the ultimate responsibility for putting out the network C Hag erty ABC vice president in charge of White House press secretary when Nixon was vice president under Dwighl

to keep Hiss part off the air Hagerty said the program was a fair presentation giving both sides of a controversy Hagerty said Nixon would be given air time to respond to the program if he asked for it but that no invitation to respond was regarded as warranted Later a network spokesman said Nixon had been invited to appear on Sun days program but declined through an aide Red merchandise is
