Peroii won gover- norships. The Peronists, jubilant in vic- tory, are biltcr foes of Fronrtizi's tcrvcniion by Yankee im- perialism.

But it had come so swiftly the adminislra- adminislralion and Alliance of the U.S. for Progress WEATHER program, which is intended to combat communism and Castro Ism and raise the economic lev- els of Latin America. Frondizi talked privately at Government House with all his civilian Cabinet ministers. Tlie conferences set off a rumor that the Cabinet had resigned. Min isters denied this when they emerged from the executive of iice. Bui rumor persisted that there would be a shakcup in the wake of Ihe administration's de- feat at the polls. Chiefs of the armed forces called on Frondizi before dawn to demand intervention and the resignation of Interior Minislei Alfredo Vitolo, who is reported lo have insisted earlier this month that the Peronisls long barred from political allowed to run. Vitolo was reported to have submitted his resignation lo Frondizi, Worry over the consequences of the Peronist victory was reflected in a government order for a one- day bank holiday. This banned all financial and foreign exchange transactions.. Government House sources an nounced this morning lhat Fron dizi has ordered federal controls in all Peronisl-won provinces, which would enable him to ap- point civilian or military loaders lo head the governments. They said if such federal con- trol continued past May election winners were due lo take election results coult! bo nullified. But the announcement sccmcc premature.

PRINCESS GRACE jusl one picture Opened on Talks GENEVA (AP) The Soviet Union announced today it was ready to negotiate with the United Stales and Britain on a nuclear test ban treaty. But it stood firm against allowing international in- spection teams on its soil. The action opened new pros- pects of East-West talks on the deadlocked issue, although it did not resolve any of the differences blocking a treaty. If agreement can he reached on a test ban pact, President Kennedy has an- nounced he will cancel next month's scheduled start on a new Grace Kelly to Moke Film for Hitchcock MONTE CARLO, Monaco (AP) Princess Grace former Grace returning to the mov- ies, the palace of this Riviera principality announced today. The announcement said she will appear in a film directed by Alfred Hitchcock based on a novel by British novelist Winston Graham. Hollywood sources identified the film as a suspense thriller in the Hitchcock tradition. The announcement indicated thai the onetime movie queen's return to films would be for only one picture. During her heyday in Hollywood, the statuesque blonde appeared in three Hitchcock M for "Rear Window" and "To Catch a Thief." The announcement said the princess would make the film toward the end of next summer and she would be back in Monaco by late November. She lias not appeared in a movie since her wed- ding. The palace communique said the princess will make the film while on a vacation in the United States. Presumably, the movie will be shot in Holly- wood. The princess recently returned from a month at a Swiss ski resort with her two children. FOR MILITARY Wagon Rolls When George Joins Up "Head'cm up!

Then came Ihe snow and a lack of available horses to replace corge. Hut Monday's fair weather and friend in the person of Wayne Tyler made it possible for the Gillis family to continue its leis- urely cross-country junket. Tyler, of 417 Butternut, taught Ihe Gillises a replacement for George, The replacement also has been dubbed "George" by Ihe family. Asked why he had purchased (he horse for Ihe people he had never met, Tyler explained lhal "I've always wanlcd lo do some- hing like Ihey're doing, but I lon't think I'm ever going lo bo ible lo find Ihe lime. This way, at cast I'm a part of it." George, a gianl of a horse, is estimated by Gillis and Tyler lo weigh close lo 1.600 pounds. It Vas found in Tirownwood after the illises had searched as far as Fort 'Worth. Gillis said he had had to let out Ihe harness worn by the first Scorge so it would fit Iho new lorsc.

The Russian announcement was lade by Deputy Soviet Foreign linister Valerian Zorin at a news onference. His statement coin- ded wilh informalion from West- tn dclegalions that (he United :ates and Britain have finally "reed on concession-; to offer ussia in an effort to meet Soviet bjeclions to international inspec- on. The offer probably will be made iicsday. 11 is understood thai the Western powers would reduce the umber of inspection trips which cams of international inspectors ould make around the Soviet Union. Much Soviet territory also vould be eliminated from any in- fection at all. British Foreign Secretary f.ord lome returned lo Geneva from veckcnd consullations in London vilh Prime Minister Harold Mac- nillan. Allied diplomats said Ihey elieved Macmillan had been in ouch with Kennedy on nailing .oun the concessions. Macmillan s said to be even more anxious han Kennedy to show thai if the J.S. tesls are held every possible effort was made lo avoid them. Zorin said the Soviel Union vould like to negotiate here with he United Slates, Britain and pti a uuctear test ban. The great powers would form a subcommiltee of the 17-nation disarmament conference. Since France is boycotting tho conference, Zorin said Russia was "also ready to continue negotia- tions" among Ihe three powers. At the news conference, Zorin also: 1. Said (he Soviet draft treaty 'or total disarmament by three stages in four years should be the aasis for negotiations here, espe- cially since, he said, the United States has not laid down a com- plete treaty proposal. 2. Rejected the proposal ad- vanced by U. S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk last week that Russia and the United States each trans- fer kilograms of nuclear ex. plosive material to a stockpile for peaceful uses. Zorin said that should be done only at a time when nuclear weapons came un- der a total ban. 3. Declined lo say whether Rus- sia would walk oul of Ihe disar- mamcnt talks if and when Ken- nedy starts nuclear explosions in the atmosphere, assuming there is no test ban treaty meanwhile. 4. Declared lhal national in- spection syslems for delecting nuclear explosions are sufficient to police a test ban treaty. This is Ihe heart of the treaty dispute. Tlie United States insists interna- tional inspectors must be admit- ted to Ihe Soviet t'nion.
