Honduras Jacob Arbenz Guz- man of Guatemala was reported readying a "taxlcab army" Sun- day night for a counterblow and perhaps a showdown battle against the anti-Communist In- vaders of his country. Lenders of the "liberation army" who said their men consisted entirely of Guatemal- ans, declared their three-prong- ed invasion was well advanced toward the Pan-American High- way near the Salvadorean bor- der. But Associated Press Corres- pondent Jack Rutledge in Gua- temala said the government had ordered all private automobiles commandeered, and had put guards over all gasoline stations to prevent sales to private own- ers. He said the cars were biting mobolized to move troops, and that a decisive phase In the battle for Guatemala might be reached in 40 hours. He quoted Guatemalan army officers as saying no field ac- tion had been fought in the three-day old revolution against the Red-backed regime, but that action could not be delayed much longer. President Arbenz was reported to be in personal charge of de- fense strategy, and it was spec- ulated that he might have in mind an emulation of the fa- mous "taxicab army" which France rushed up to the Marne in World War I to turn back the Germans from Paris. The U. S. Embassy in Guate- ama also was reported con- cerned by a rising "anti-Ameri- can" campaign in the capital. It was reported making plans to evacuate the Americans In Guatemala. The embassy de- scribed the situation as "very, very serious." A spokesman at the "Libera- tion Army" headquarters here of Col. Carlos Castillo Armas, leader of the Guatemalan re- sistance movement, said the in- vaders were moving toward Ju- tiapa, a town of some 45 miles south of Guatemala City and 20 miles north of the El Salvador border. The rebels also were pointed toward Asuncion Mita a town of 3.000, 13 miles northeast of Jutiapa.
