Offer of Guatemalan hand to Salvadoran Settler*
le DIAKIO LATINO, flan Salvador,pril, carried under banner headlines sn arUolo of its Guatemalan correspondent which contained an offer by Sr. Kartincs, chlaf of DAB, toalTadorans In Ouatemala In the fraaework of thT^ agrarian reform. According to an apparently aeU placed source, this offer is likaly to make's favorebls. for the Guatemalan roglno) impression upon many SalTBdorans. This natter has been nentloned by other papers, too, la the meantime and we sawews Item according to which at least one Salvadoran settler has already arrived in Guatemala.
2. We suggest that KAauflA might drew fts.vjirs.'* attention to the above. Ba night use whatever outlet he considers suitable to attack Martinez'offer, possibly along the following lines t
Since there are atlU many Guatemalans without lend (wehy give land to foreigners?
Is this the first step towards staking uuatemsla sn "Internationaloviet style, and do the UOanunlsts Intend to bring in settlers from other countries, too, undoubtedly selected accord In? to their political views?
The Communists obviously do no longer trust Guatemalan caapeoihe* and they want to play off the Salvadoran Bottlers against the "natives'.
3- The above suggestion aust not pevent you from carrying out any higher priority sssignnonts in which you are already engaged, although attacks upon tho agrarian reform, apparently considered the most positive achievement of the Arbenn regime, should always bo given adequate spaoe and attention.
