Hugo Banzer as president is emerging as an anti-leftist re- gime. But in unstable Bolivia, which has had more than 180 uprisings in its 146 years of independence, the Banzer regime laces a cloudy future because of old an- tagonisms among its members The rebellion, which had been in the planning stages lor months, broke out Aug. 18 in Santa Cruz as right-wing mili- tary elements took over the city. Mario Gutierrez, the govern- ment's new foreign minister and head of the conservative Boliv- ian Socialist Falange, said in an interview that the military re- belled because the leftist regime of President Juan Jose Torres "had a program to Cubanize Bolivia." United in common causo against Torres with the military was the Falange and the Na- tional Revolutionary Movement, a moderately leftist politi c a 1 party. It appears that only the finan- cial crisis brought upon Bolivia by the Torres government and ils predesessor, Gen. Alfredo Ovando, and the fear of a Com- munist takeover united the two groups. They a r e bitter ene- mies. The Movement staged a revo- lution in 1952 when it wrested control of the poverty-stricken, land-locked country from the hands of a relatively small number of rich. When it was ousted in 19G4 tvith a military coup by Gen. Rene Barrientos, President Vic- tor Paz Estenssoro went into exile in Peru. He came back Monday with the blessing of the Banzer gov- ernment to act as an adviser to the new regime. It appears that Banzer identi- fies personally with the sonserv- ative Falange element al- though he has publicly promised to "do away" with the terms left or right in his "nationalistic revolutionary" government. But he has been listening more to Movement members than those of the Falange be- cause they have more experi- ence in government. He met Tuesday with ex-president Pai for 45 minutes. Paz is still considered presi- dential timber and there are those who discount Banzer's public declaration that Paz no longer has any interest in be- coming president again.
