ponders full embargo BUENOS AIRES Argentina Friday recalled Ambassador Julio Amoedo from Cuba the Foreign Ministry an nounced The step had been expected as President Arturo Frondizi sought to appease military critics of his soft line toward the Fidel Castro regime in Cuba atthe recent in terAmerican foreign ministers conference Recalling the ambassador does not constitute a diplomatic break but morning newspapers here hat suggested that the crisis between the president and the nations leading military men was nearing an end They predicted a gradua break in relations with Cuba However many officers were reported still demanding the im mediate complete break which the nations military leadership de manded in an ultimatum to the president Thursday night The latest crisis for Frondizis government now in its fourth year stemmed from Argentinas refusal at the interAmerican con ference earlier this week to vote with the USsupported majority to oust the Castro regime from the Organization of American States Published reports said the serv ice chiefs had threatened to resign unless Frondizi swings his foreign policy to the right breaks with Cuba and fires Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Carcona and other officials responsible for putting Argentina in the goslow bloc at the interAmerican conference at Punta del Este Uruguay However Carcano emerged from the late night meeting with Frondiziand the military chiefs and gave the impression that the government had won a breathing spell Argentina joined Brazil Chile Mexico Ecuador and Bolivia in Opposing the conferences key immediate ouster ofCuba from OAS the grounds that the OAS charter contains no legal provision for ex pulsion of a member The US government itself is reported ready to make more ex tensive use of its naval forces in an effort to cut off Cuban arms shipments to subversive groups in other LatinAmerican countries President and Secre tary of State Dean Rusk also are looking into the possibility of slap ping a total embargo on US trade with Cuba one effect of which would be to deny Cuba a source of income amounting to about million a year at the present rate of trade In connection with the possible abolition of all trade with Cuba Rusk charged Thursday at a news conference that Cuba was using American dollars to promote sub version in other countries He didnt explain the remark iowa

country lowans agree Rockefeller is charming and effective By J1MCOLLISON GlobeGazette Staff Writer DES MOINES Republicans in Iowa Friday wererubbing their eyes to get them back in focus What did they see Thursday in Nelson Rockefeller and what political office was he seeking hi his barnstorming through Iowa RepublicansinTowa arecer tain of one thing after meeting with the New York governor Demo spending under attacks WASHINGTON Republi cans across the nation poured out cash forthe party till Thursday night along with cries that Demo crats are grabbing for more pow er with profligate spending and political fakery And the GOP faithful heard what some of them thought sound ad like a political war whoop not so much for 1962 as from Gov Nelson A Rockefeller of New York The Republicans spent the eve ning at 17 party gettogethers in 17 cities tied together for dn hour by closed circuit television This s the warmup and kickoff for the congressional election cam paign of 1962 The oratory at the parties fol owed the usual political pattern of swinging away at the opposi tion upholding the GOP cause with professions of confidence and holding up the party as the great hope of the nation for get ting sound sensible responsible government This was the otherside of the record the Democrats played on Jan first anniversary of the New Frontier when they staged a fundraising banquet that drew people to Washington from over the country Gen Dwight D Eisenhower paced the parade of Republican speakers It was the former presi dent who accused the Democrats of profligate spending and living on a flood of LOUs He and other GOP oratorial talent said the opposition is reaching for a more powerful central government and controls Eisenhower urged the Republi cans to discard such tags as liberal and conservative to and listening to him lambast the Democratic administration in Washington Rockefeller is a charming and effective cam paigner Nearly 3000 IowaGOP party workers ate cold chicken whooped and yelled under Atty gettogether to start working hardand in unity With a nation and a world at stake he said lets roll up our sleeves and get going It was Rockefeller trying for another term as governor this year and perhaps for the White House in 1964 who set off the heaviest blastsat President Ken nedy and his administration Rockefeller accused Kennedyof political fakery in the way the President handled a proposal to establish a federal department of urban affairs and to install hous ing administrator Robert C Weav er as the first Negro in the Cab inet Sen Barry Goldwater of Arizo na a favorite ofthe conservatives for a shot at the presidency gol in his licks He contended that leftwingers dominate the New Frontier and that the GOP musl lead the way to fiscal sanity and responsibility v While he was at it the senator gigged Kennedy for touching off an upcoming investigation of what the President called excessive stockpiling of emergency mate rials fori defense The Republicans Goldwater said merely carried out con tracts let under the Roosevelt and Truman administrations and more chicken A HUNGRY LOT Other Republican leaders at Thursdays rally in Des Moines who

such words mean anything in the 1960s Is he a candidate forNew York gov ernor or for Is he a rich man or a poor man Rockefeller in a press con ference Thursday prior to his speech at KRNT Theater said that what some persons term the swing toward conserva tism is not exactly the case He explained i think the con servatives in this country have become more vocal When Rockefeller talked to the fundraising rally Thursday night he nearly denied the exis tence of a liberalconservative difference The governor listed four bas ic Republican principles These are the fundamental things to which we are dedi cated let us not be di verted by such debates as those over such slogans as liberal or conservative f The governor outlined sever al of his legislative victories in New York victories which some Republicans brand as lib eral and asked Are they liberal or are they conserva tive I dont know All I can tell you is that they have been in the best interests of the peo ple of New York state Rockefeller said he was inter ested only in reelection as gov ernor of New York Asked why he was in Iowa Rockefeller said because I was invited Asked if he thought hed win any votes while campaigning in the state Rockefeller said Im here to win votes for Republicans like my good friend here Norm Erbe And to keep the towa Rcpublf cans in a state of dizzynessGov Erbe in his talk sounded almost like a New Frontier Democrat These were Erbes words I believe that Iowa today is on the very threshold of an econ omy and life that can become the envy of this country This is a tate ripening to season If we will bring ourselves to recognize towa as the marvelous gift of and and peace and space and sromise that it is then we will ind growing in ourselves the con fidence which will let us grasp our future here in our beloved Our time is upon us and all we need now is the pride the vision and the confidence to grasp the future We Republicans have a tremendous opportunity to pio neer in this future George Nagle state GOP chair man introduced Erbe as the man who kept his promise Erbe promised he wouldnt raise axes and he kept that promise Erbe responded by saying It wasnt Erbe who kept his
