Seeking to stem any spread of Communist influence or dic tatorships Kennedy set forth a 10point aid plan which won warnspraise from Latin American diplomats in his audience in the White House East Room WASHINGTON Mf Presi dent Kennedy asked Congress Tuesday for funds to start a 10year cooperative aid pro gram dimen sion this banner tyranny no The President sent a special message to Congress after having dramatically unveiled Monday night a farreaching plan for an alliance of prog ress with south of the border nations For example Nicaraguan Ambassador Guillermo Sevil la Sacasa dean of the diplo matic corps said the Presi dents speech was so com prehensive and extraordinary in its profound summary of LatinAmerican problems and means of attacking them that it will become known as the Kennedy doctrice Mexicos Ambassador An tonio Carrillo Flores called it an excellent address which follows Mexicos longtime tradition that economic prog ress is meaningless without freedom In sounding the freedom theme Kennedy expressed special friendship for the peo ple of Cuba and the Domini can Republic the only two Latin American nations not represented at the White House reception where he spoke And he voiced the hope that the people of those coun which the United States has severed diplomatic relations will soon rejoin the society of free men unit ing with us in our common effort Among the first goals the President set forth is getting Congress to appropriate to help finance a big scale in terAmerican effort to relieve widespread hardship and make the benefits of increas ing abundance available to all Congress also authorized million in aid last year for re construction and rehabilitation of areas of Southern Chile dev astated by earthquakes and fires Kennedy urged speedy appropriation of this money so the task of rebuilding the economy of Southern Chile can proceed without delay Kennedys message to Con gress is intended to get the ad ministration program rolling in a modest way He placed no overall price tag on the gen eral plan but he left no doubt that he is thinking in terms of big spending over the if the LatinAmerican coun tries pitch in and help to the greatest extent possible In Havana meanwhile Fidel Castro threatened that Cuba will form many revolutionary govemmentsinexile begin ning with Puerto the United States sanctions a Cuban governmentinexile The prime minister made a sharp counterattack to Ken nedys broad economic and social development program Castro quickly interpreted it as a call for a revolt against his regime If they promote revolution against us we will promote revolution against the gov ernments which promote revo lution against us he said Emphasis placed on guerrillas An area once neglected By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON Guerrilla Warfare Webster informs is an irregular war by inde pendent bands It is a tech nique that has been largely neglected by the United States military since the days of the old frontier Appropriately enough it is becoming a more than casual concern of Presi dent John F Kennedy As evidence the Pentagon annotmced that the head of the Special Warfare Branch at Ft Bragg NC Col William P Yarbrough was being raised a rank to brigadier general And the administration recently authorized a 500man increase in the strength of our 1800man guerrilla and counterguerrilla forces The new emphasis on guerrilla war may reflect increased con cern for the worsening situation in Laos where the Communist Pathet Lao forces have oper ated up until recently chiefly as irregulars THE REBELS are now sup posed to be receiving massive supplies of relatively heavy weapons and the artillery of 105 mm type is not consistent with the usual concept of guerrilla warfare On the other side the monsoon season is now at hand in Laos and the rains would favor Communist guerrilla tactics The Kennedy Administration has shown a new interest in ground warfare in general While denying a leaked story purporting a switchover in em phasis from nuclear to conven tional weapons Secretary of State Dean Rusk affirmatively mentioned strengthening of nonnuclear aspects of defense AS FOR guerrilla fighting the semiofficial magazine Army has begun publishing a three part abridgment of a manual on the subject by Ernesto Che Guevara Fidel Castros field commander during the sucess ful Cuban revolution And thu is no dull technical publication hul as described by Mark S Watson military correspondent of the Baltimore Sun a bril liantly reasoned and highly readable work on how and where and when to organize secret guerrilla forces and then to employ them with maximum effectiveness for destroying order Army Special Forces have from time to time been given instruction and training in ir regular fighting as have Marines but most of it has been sporadic and not combat proved World War II tank destroyers for example were given courses in dirty fight ing and pioneer tactics which proved largely useless once they were blooded BUT FOR THE most part Americans have considered guerrillas only an abjunct of legitimate troops Now in Bavaria as well as at Ft Bragg the toughest kind of special forces arc being drilled in ir regular tactics For good reason Moscow has translated Che Guevaras manual into several languages Red China is furtively pushing Mao Tsctungs equally brilliant book on the same subject in translation in Latin America And Fidel Castro makes no secret of his determination to export Cubas brand of rcvolu lion to
