Grim and gaunt from the 11 days of crisis, Frondizi drove, to his office from his suburban home. He smiled wanly as re- porters asked him for comment but remained silent. The military occupalion of ra- dio stations, central telephone of- fices and public works plants obviously was a move to thwart any disturbance and to be in' a position for a military takeover of the nation if it is ordered by the army, navy and .air chiefs. Military sources said the com- bined armed'forces at a predawn session decided to put into action plans for the forceful ouster of the embattled president after he again rejected their demands that he quit. But at midmorning there was a sudden halt in the plans, appar: ently to give Frondizi one more chance to resign. As the situation grew more tense, Interior .Minister Hugo Vaca Narvaja told newsmen, "calm pre- vails throughout the nation, at least externally." .The minister said that if any measures had been adopted in the armed forces "they have not found expression outside the bar- racks."
