Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS JT 81ST YEAR, NO. 284 PutsOut BUENOS AIRES, Argentina Arturo Fronciizi cnlmly turned aside a new armed forces ultimatum for his resigna- tion today and dramatically or- dered his pink palace cleared o( battle-geared troops. in a few minutes the baltalion of troops, armed with submachine guns, disappeared from positions it had occupied in the palace and outside his office. The embattled president then went, oft to lunch. A rash of reports has bombardec? this capital since before dawn that the army, navy and air force chiefs had already set the ma- chinery in motion for an imminent ouster ot the president. But these reports subsided somewhat later. Shortly before ordering the pal- ace cleared ot troops the president refused to accept outright the res- ignations ol Gen. Roscndo Fraga, secretary of the army and Jorge Rojas Silveyra. secretary of the air force. He took the resignations under advisement. It was clear the two armed forces chiefs were seeking to give themselves a free hand in the tense developments. The navy sec- retary, Adm. Gaston Clement, quit several days ago and since then the navy has been in the van in demanding Frondizi's resignation. In the confused developments, the commanders of the three armed services served a written demand on the president early in the afternoon to resign immedi- ately. They set no hour. Frondizi before dawn already had firmly rejected one such demand. Military units soon after dawn began taking up guard posts at telephone exchanges and ninny other key centers in the capital snd throughout the country, Military sources described these measures as phase 1 of a plan for 'The forceful mister of the president. Hector Gomez Machado, presi- dent ot the Frondizi bloc in the Chamber of Deputies, declared, however, that the mililary move- ments were a security measure against possible attacks by Per- onisla elements. llililary units occupied Govern- ment House in Santa Rosa, capi- ta! ot La Pampa Province. Other units in battle dress rushed to guard positions at com- munications and other nerve cen- ters In Buenos Aires and key provincial cities. Troops at Government House, who Tuesday changed from their red, blue and gold uniforms for battle fatigues, stationed them- selves just outside Frondizi's of- fice for the first lime in the 11-day crisis. These guards car- ried submachine guns. Grim and gaunt from the 11 days of crisis, Frondizi drove to his office from his suburban home. He smiled wanly ns reporters asked him for comment hut re- mained silent. The mililary occupation of ra- dio stations, central telephone ol- ficcs and public works plants obviously was a move lo thwart nny disturbance and to he in a position for a mililary takeover of the nation if it is ordered by the army, navy and air chiefs. Military sources said the com- bined armed forces at a predawn session decided to put into action plans for the forceful ouster of (he embattled president afler lie again rejected their demands that he cull.
