Peron without riot, military revolt or revolution. The former president, a divi- sive figure during nine years of dictatorial rule and 17 years of exile, has been back for about five days. None of the extreme predictions of Iiis followers or enemies, who foresaw coups, bloodbatfis or p o p u I a r upris- ings, have come true. For those three days, first the Argentine military govern- ment, then Peron, a 77-year-old former infantry officer, have paraded their forces preoaring for the political battle that is yet to come. Lt. Gen. Alejandro A. Lanusse, the cavalry officer serving simultaneously as president and commander in chief of the army, turned out troops, tanks, armored cars and riot police all over Argentina last week and, with the help of a driving rain, kept the day of Pcron's arrival from becoming a huge popular celebration. La- nusse showed that he had the arms. Peron showed that he had the popular following although perhaps not as fervently nu- merous as during his years in power. More than people according to police and news- paper estimates, made their to Iiis new home in a su- burn of Buenos Aires. Perciusls had said his return from exile would draw out one million. "If we are not the they chanted, "who can the people A few t h o u s a nd Peronist youlh who spend the night out- doors in I heir aging leader's neighborhood, heard him say Sunday "The 1 u t u r c, comrades, is yours. It belongs (o youth." But Pcron avoided any sug- gestion of the revolutionary vio- lence that his youngest, and newest, followers say they want. "I want to ask you to stay calm and be Pcron sold from n window overlooking tho crowd of young men nnd women In tho street. And that Is nil Peron hns snld In public about the purpose of bis return. The precise nlms of tho populist leader have re- innliicd unclear. lie has kept nlmost nil options open through Ills wldo nnd disparate political JUAN PERON back home movement, which Includes ur- ban guerrillas, old polit i c a 1 pros, marxists and right wing nationalists. Peron is still formally the presidential candidate for this movement, but he has hinted recently that he might not want to run in the elections sched- uled for next March 11. "If what you understand by opportunist is someone who sizes every favorable opportun- ity, then I am an a recent visitor to Madrid, his home in exile, heard Peron say. As president, Pcron had a taste for total victory that solidified the opposition he tried to elim- inate and brought on Iiis down- fall. The commanders of the armed forces, now in power, mistrust him and many officers dislike him. However, neither side now shows the strength to Impose its own solution on the other. After six years of unsuccessful attempts lo give Argentina, gen- erally the most well off, best fed, and most materially com- fortable country in South Amer- ica, a new start towards fast economic growth. Tho military government Is tired and repressive. Lanusso has presided over the rehabili- tation of Pcron, whose name could not be printed in Argon- linn until two years ago, In or- der to bring nil of tho country's political forces In on the planned elections. On tho Poronist side, three days have begun to show thnt Fcron is an old man, easily tired. lie has not yet shown that lw Is fully In control of his divided movement.
