With All Latent and Best Newt of the Day Daily Wire of United Preit UPl md Intematlotul News Service INST CHESTER PA FRIDAY AUGUST 11 1933 REPOR TMA CHADO READY TO RETIRE AS CUBAS CHIEF President Machado With Support of Liberal Party Drafts Counter Proposal to Sugges tions Submitted by Ambassador Welles First Declined US Plan Military Rule Lessens Violence in Capital Participants in Seditions Movements Given 24 Hours to Deliver Or dered to Open Closed Stores HAVANA Cuba Aug A reliable but unofficial source said to day that President Garardo Machado was proposing to retire from the Presidency in favor of Gen Alberto Hcrrera The decision on the part of the President was described as a counter proposal to the peace plan suggested by U S Ambassador Sumner Welles whose formula was said to include the retirement of the President The Machado counterplan would provide lor Hcrrera to become provi sional President and form a national cabinet General Herrera is one of President Machados righthand men He was acting secretary of state during the absence of Secretary Orestes Ferrara in London and the United States The essential difference between the Machado plan and the Welles proposals appeared to be that the President was insisting on the right to maintain a member of his own Liberal party as heart of the new regime Previously the executive committee of Machados own Liberal party which he thoroughly dominates voted a resolution which rejected the Ameri can formula for ending the passive revolution While the executive committee met the military rulers of Havana ordered shopkeepers to open their stores under threat of heavy penalties Frantic negotiations to settle a gen eral strike were proceeding Machado told the United States he would agree if his party asked him as a patriotic gesture to withdraw But he said he was confident Cuba could solve her own problems and lie would not recognize the possibility of foreign intervention The liberal resolution was an in dication of the Machado vieiy that his retirement is unnecessary It had been intended to submit this resolution at once to Machado and Ferrara for approval But the com mittee at a meeting that lasted until nearly midnight refrained from for mally signing the resolution and ad journed without making a final de cision This action seemed due to Machados decision to submit his own proposal to liquidate the crisis which has caused many deaths brought a food shortage that was becoming se rious among the poorer classes and resulted in some violence to Ameri cans The strike still paralyzed the capitals normal activities Machada and the Liberals were fighting it out alone while American Ambassador Sumner and the conservative and popular parties awaited their next move Heads of these parties formally as sured Welles that they approved his efforts to arrange a solution of the crisis j This solution which never has been published was said to involve appointment of a new secretary of state acceptable to all parties to succeed Ferrara and an immediate request thereafter by Machado for vacation to allow the new secre tary to assume the presidency The Liberal executive committees resolution which a committeeman told the United Press was adopted MACHADOSAYS CUBA CAN SOLVE OWNPROBLEMS President Declines to Con sider Intervention by United States Would Resign if His Own Party in Power Re quests It Editors Note In ths follow inginterview with heUnited Press President Gcrardo Ma chado of Cuba asserts he will ask for a vacation if his sup porters ask it but he believes the

with the United Press He declined absolutely to consider the possibility of United States in tervention expressed his belief that the revolutionlita general strike was nearmg an end and promised that the state which he declared as an emergency measure would he ended as soon as conditions justified Maintaining loyality to party dis cipline he said he would relinquish power if his party as a patriotic matter asked it but he desired in any event to remain in Cuba to live and die The president gave his interview in the form of answers to a question naire submitted through his secre Asked if he would comply if the Liberal and other parties asked him to take a vacation he said If the Liberal party which carried me to which I belong and which has shared with me the re sponsibilities ot my government agrees to ask me to resign esteem ing it a matter of patriotic conveni ience I should force myself to resign immediately faithful to the discipline j of my party in the countrys service I
