The Alliance is cast in the role of nervous mortician, waiting for the death rattle of a moribund system.. But the patient is struggling desperately to survive. And the struggle is churning up revolutionary ferment.

And whatever'they may be, these governments are all the Al- liance has at the present time to work with.

The White House had nothing to say immediately, as to a succes- sor. Reports were circulating that Gen. Lyman L. Lemnitzer, chair- man of the U.S. joint chiefs of staff, might replace Norstad. But there also was talk of Gen.'Max- well D. Taylor, now presidential military adviser. Norstad has held the Allied po- sition with-headquarters in Paris since 1956. He is known as a strong advocate of increasing uni- ty among the Western European Allies and between them and the United States. Word that the. general has sub- mitted his resignation' came first from the newspaper Le Monde in Paris. Norstad said in a letter to Ken- nedy: "We live in.a.time of continuing crisis, but for the moment, at least, there is no unusual pres- sure on my office.

University students and others carried antijunta demonstrations into the early morning hours with cries of "We don't want dictator- ship. Liberty, liberty." The newspaper La Prensa said 45 persons were arrested in the demonstrations. Speculation arose that under the barrage of foreign criticism the junta might install a figurehead civilian president, as the military bid in Argentina. An American sugar company official said 75 per cent of his firm's plantations were shut down Thursday by a walkout of workers loyal to Victor Raul Haya de la Torre, leftist but avowed -anti- Communist presidential aspirant who was the principal target of the military takeover.

A massive clean-up effort was'underway early Friday morning as the firm's 38. employes cleared away the debris from the charred skeleton of- the building. Early estimates of damage ran around The loss could have been much-heavier had it not been for employes and volunteers who drove' through smoke and flames to save most of the the building.

Gromyko said today that the Soviet Union re- gairds the Laos treaty as a guar- antee of Southeast Asia "and not only in that region." Looking a bit tired, Gromyko landed here two hours ahead of U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk to take.part in the 14-nation .treaty signing and another round of big power talks on Berlin and' dis- armament. He said the Laos accord would definitely establish the jungle kingdom as a "united, independ- ent and neutral nation." A large gathering of diplomats, including U.S. Ambassador W. Averell Harriman, were on hand at the airport for Gromyko's ar- rival. Peering through horn-rimmed glasses at. the prepared state- ment, Gromyko- said the Laps agreement "proves that if the in- terested states really want to un- derstand each other on questions which divide them they can ac- complish it" Gromyko noted a series of set- backs which Wad kept the Laotian pot boiling over .the past 14 months. He said most of the ob- stacles were "artificial by forces which cared little for the national interest of the Lao- tian people." "All that is past now, Gromyko concluded.
