DuUes spoke in the face of talk by Peiping of “liberating” the island of Formosa, now held by c'hiang Kai-shek and the Chinese Nationalists. I*.

Gen. Caido da Castro, chief of his military staff, was with him. Police said Vargas suddenly whipped a pistol from his pocket and shot, dying almost immediately.

Today 32 general officers of the army joined in the demand for Vargas’ ouster. The army officers’ petition was presented to Vargas this morning at Catete Palace. It was announced the president, who came to power in 1930 and ruled all but five years since then, had agreed to ask congress for a leave of absence. Four hours later he was dead. Cafe To Succeed Joao Cafe Filho, vice president since 1951, was in line to succeed Vargas. The crisis that brought Vargas* ouster and death began Aug. 5 with the slaying of an air force major, Ruben Vaz, during an attempt to assassinate Carlos LaCerda, an anti-V^argas editor. The slaying aroused widespread kidignation in both the military and the press. , This grew’ when it was discovered that members of V^argas’ personal body guard were involved.
