Soldiers and national policemen were posted at key points in the capital to guard against Peronist distur bances as the military chiefs pressed Guide's govern ment to bar the followers of ex-Dictator Juan Peron from politics once again. An estimated more troops were summoned from the provinces to Buenos Aires. Guido was reported standing firm against the military demand, but his new 'government began to wilt under the same military put on President Arturo Frondizi before ousting him Reds Attempt To Halt U.S. Nuclear Tests GENEVA Soviet U ion launched a series of diplomat- ic maneuvers today in an attempl to block the American atmosphcr ic nuclear weapons tests due soon in the Pacific. The United States and Britain stood fast against the pressure. Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian A. Zorin called in the 17-nation disarmament conference for an unpoliced moratoroium on move firmly resisted by the American ambassador. Zorin demanded'-that the United States promise to refrain from conducting shots over the Easter holiday weekend. He declared the Soviet Union would not agree to a recess of the conference unless such a promise was received. Zorin's maneuvers tied up the conference in a procedural wrangle. The delegates many with their bags been scheduled to recess today until Tuesday. There was no indication in Gen- eva that the American tests would start this weekend. Westerners speculated that the first shot in the projected Christmas Island series was at least, .seven days away. In a long session of the confer- ence. U.S. Ambassador Arthur H. Dean and British Minister of State Joseph Godber insisted there was no change in the Western posi- tion. Simply stated it is. this: The United States tests will take place as planned unless the Soviet Union quickly accepts a test ban treaty with-international, control arrangements. In Wash- ington and London President Ken- nedy and Prime Minister Macmil- lan have said the same thing. Zorin repeated that the Krem- lin never would accept interna- tional controls.' Zorin coupled his move with a qualified Soviet offer to negotiate on those portions of a neutralist test ban which conform to Mos- cow's ideas on enforcement. The United States and Britain said they also, would be willing to use the neutralist proposal for ne- gotiating purposes provided the Soviets accepted the concept .of scientifically sound international enforcement. The American and British dele- gations said they, too, were will- ing to negotiate on the neutralist plan if the Soviet Union would ac- cept the principle of an interna- tional control system and of on- site inspections. The plan was submitted" three days ago-by the eight nohalignec countries at the zil, Burma, Ethiopia, ico, Nigeria, Sweden and the United Arab Republic. The eight countries tried to bridge the differences on inspec- tion and control dividing the So- viet Union from the United States and Britain. Dean said the Soviets cepting what is in their favor but rejecting what they are opposed to." "The Soviet Union is ready to stop tests if the Western powers Zorin said.

But they have repeatedly warned of socia disturbances unless the govern ment allows the many Peronis victors in the March 18 elections to take office on schedule May 1 Leaders of the 3-million-member Peronist-dominated General Con federation of Labor arranged to meet Tuesday to map strategy. Informed sources said G.uido turned down the military's de mands in .a 90-minute meeting Wednesday..'night with the three service .secretaries, the army's Gen, Raul' A. Poggi, the navy's Rear Adm. Gaston Clement anc the air force's" Brig. Jorge Rojas Silveyra. The military chiefs demanded that Guido: 1. Order federal .'intervention in the 17 provinces still under local control, replacing their ..elected governors with federal appointees approved 2. Nullify the March 18 elec- tions in which the Peronists drew more than 2.5 million votes, elected governors in nine prov- inces and won 43 seats in the na- tional Chamber of Deputies; 3. Once again ban Peronists and their allies, including the Commu- nists, from political activity; and 4. Scrap labor legislation the military considers too favorable to the Peronist unions. After the meeting with Guido, :he service secretaries met for three hours with their top com manders. They were reported de- lermined that' Guido' agree to ;heir demands. Five of the provinces, including cey Buenos Aires province, are already under federal interventors appointed by Frondizi at the mili- tary's insistence. The military made use .of. this intervention for the first time Wednesday by pres- suring the Buenos Aires' province chief to ban all Peronist activity n his area. The military ousted Dictator Juan D. Peron in 1955 and.is de- ermined to suppress the re- surgence of his followers.

The freshmen agreed over- whelmingly, Irewever, that by and large, they really like East Cen- tral, that most' of the matters touched on are in good shape at the college. The visiting principals and counselors found the conference sufficiently useful that they voted for repeating it next year. West Officials Regard Move As Significant BERLIN (AP) The re- moval of Marshal Ivan S. Konev from command of Soviet troops in East Ger- many is .regarded as a most significant event by West- !ern officials in Berlin. Konev has been replaced by Col. Ivan I. Yakubovski, the Soviet news agency Tass reported today. This restores the com- mand situation prevailing before the East Germans built'the'wall across Berlin last August. Yakubovski was then commander of the 20 to122 Soviet divisions in East Germany. On Aug. 10 it was announced Konev had come out of 'retire- ment to take over from Yakubov- ski. Throe days after his appoint- ment, the East Germans began putting up the wall to stop the flight of refugees. Word of Konev's departure came as a surprise to Western of- ficials here. Konev has the reputation of be- ing a tough and resolute cpm- jmander.

Runs Panama School For Warfare WASHINGTON than 160 military officers from almost every Latin-American country are graduates of a U. S.-operated school in Panama which teaches the techniques of counter-insurgency. Another class -of 33 officers began studies in class- rooms and jungles of the'Panama area April 9 and still more will come in subsequent classes. Graduates range, in rank from second lieutenant to brigadier general.' Counter-insurgency is of prime importance to Latin America, a priority target for Communist efforts. _ Although the course of for military personnel of nations which request the accent on guerrilla and anti-guerrilla action, it also includes such related items as intelligence and. counter-intellf- ligence, psychological op- erations and civil affairs. The Army says none of -the training is designed .specifically for anyone country and empha- sizes that the program is not aimed at training forces to invade Communist Cuba. Facilities of Ft.

President Kennedy is expected to send to Congress soon a mes- sage incorporating recommenda- tions of a bipartisan commission for tax incentives to broaden the base of political contributions. The commission .proposed in a report made public Wednesday by the White House to give individ- uals a direct tax credit of ?10 to apply against donations they make to authorized political com- jmittees. Larger donors could take a deduction of up to" yearly for political contribution's in fig- uring the taxes they owe.

Thus-.the two top figures.dis- patched by the Kremlin and the White- House to Berlin at the height of the crisis will have left. In political circles here there was speculation the moves were relat- ed, bound up with the present phase of U.S.-Soviet negotiation over Berlin. Western sources suggested Pre- mier Khrushchev felt, he-could pull back his marshal after. the announcement that President Ken- nedy was withdrawing his general. The reasoning was that Konev's arrival presaged trouble for Ber- lin, so his departure could possibly be a promise of. a more settled period.

Latin-American military person- nel have attended both the jungle school and infantry schools in the United States. Classes in .the unconventional warfare school in Panama are small and select. A maximum of 40 are in each.class. -The army's instructor staff, in- .eludes both commissioned and noncommissioned personnel. All teaching is in Spanish. The Army says jungle warfare, favored by guerrillas, places an extreme demand for'physical fit- ness, endurance and resourceful- ness on the individual soldier. The jungle is. humid and in many places a tangle of trees and undergrowth. Mountainsides are steep. Jungle streams can be swift and treacherous to cross. But the jungle, while presenting obstacles, also provides concealed places from which to strike at guerrilla bands. The weapons are, of course, the basic side- arms, light mortars, grenades and knives of the infantryman, plus that all-purpose tool, the machete. The latter is good for chopping wood or people. Because all antiguerrilla action doesn't occur in jungles, the course includes the. use .of civic action. This means that people in an area under guerrilla control can be used to the area and oust they can be convinced -of the friendliness of the counterguerrilla force. Lectures at counterguerrilla schools in the United States and overseas explain that civic action can range, from, basic military courtesy and discipline on up to formal projects. It is .wise to be sure that the fundamentals are being followed soundly. "For ex- ample, troops can be polite with civilians at road blocks and still be ready for action if- necessary.

Tshombe and 22 other passen- gers remained, in the plane de- spite the. steaming .temperature, while U.N. officials tried to iron out the situation: Robert Gardiner, U.N. opera- tions chief, in the Congo, finally. gave the order to U.N.

The United -Nations' had guaran- teed Tshombe's safety and his freedom to return to his capital if he would go.tq Leopoldville to dis- cuss conditions for ending the se- cession of Katanga.

Gardiner said that while waiting to take off, Tshombe still talked of returning to Leopoldville for fur- ther negotiations. To the cheering crowd in Elisa- bethville's main square, Tshombe spoke bitterly of the Adoula government, and praised the United Nations.
