What could be the cause of this failure?
According to an account by the medical doctor, an
intelligent and very experienced young man, they talked to nim as well as to other friends of his and asked that they contribute to thise intended to givearge aun.
A and hia friends) set themselves to studying the proposal and af tar weignfflg' the pros and cons decided that if foreign enterprises and governments as rich and as powerful as those which had been named wereto the organisation of that Operation for the Invasion of Guatemala it vaa impoeaibla that it was lacking money or arms; they considered it a
a very strange thing that (the Organisation) should cone toun of such relatively little Booey, which would borop of water,ingle bomber costs aore; furthermore they did notpractical an invasion which mightar in Central America. They decided that apparently such aid from tbe United States of America did not exist and that the foreseeable result would be that they should lose their money in so financially poor and so badly organized an enterprise.
They talked with other prudent friends who had also been invited to contribute to this enterprise and verified the fact that these had the aame pessimistic conclusions about contributing.
Thus was ended thia badly directed attempt to solicit the aid of the Salvador capital, in order to save Ouatemala and to protect El Salvador from Communist clutches.

In re: ERMTIC/JUVIA U. meeting of Monday,iflth meeting)
rsPATIC telephoned oe Friday,h. In order to achieve all possibleorestalled hia. However, Monday morning ERRATIC again telephonedet hia9, since further evasion wp*-ld bo in iteelf suspicious. Toackground for termination and in accordance with previousold ERRATIC lt appeared plans would require no re delay than originally anticipated for reasons not disclosed to ae. ERRATICeasonable amount of delay did not give him Uie slightest concern and he uas fully in accord with any delayby nore coraful planning. He said his principal aim was to prepare everything carefully and insure success. Any necoesary delay to thus insure success of his movement waa hence perfectly eatiafaotory to him. lso toldas afraid the delay might be very great, ERRATIC said he hoped it was merely delay end not cessation of activities,n that event, he could expect toairly large segment of bis followers threaten his life. He said most of the members of his organimation are risking their lives daily and have now, at his Insistence, completedf their three phase olan. . They have now fully revived hiswithin Ouateaala and ere ready forhich calls for complete armed readiness to prepare forhich contemplates the assassination of the key Ccumuniet personnel nreviously enumerated and armed revolution against the AEHBNZ Government. XSRATIC stated that, after having called upon hie followers to risk their livesine when any political opponents of the ARBENZ Oovernmont are being tortured and killed, henow safely terminate thia newly generated movement without making hie lifo appear quite clieap in tho eyes of soma of his more fanatical followers.
In reply to our previous questions, 3RRATIC supplied the attached list of additional ke? military and political personnel which supplements names he has previously supplied us with from time to time. ERRATIC stated practically all of these individuals hold positions of responsibility sad power in Guatemala today and in order to retain their positions it is obvious they must Give constant lip service and pretense of active support to ARBENZ and the Communist program in Guatemala. Despite this necessary smoke screen generated hy these individuals, ERRATIC said ho could count
on the utmost cooperation and assured loyalty of these men. Au oxample of

1*. The question we previously askod about hie proposed overall budget for hie movement be has delayed answering until after consultation with some of hie principal political and military advisors. It was theof his followers thatf hia operation would require. He di aae rood with this estimate and changed the plans ln an effort to avoid the advanced knowledge frequently revealed ln operations of this kind by excessive use of funds to purchase additional followers and revolutionaries within the country. He estimates he' vill use no more thano achieve complete readiness for his revolt from within the military garrisons and political organisations in Guatemala. It ia his contention that merely monetary' contribution aland is Insufficient to obtain tho type of follower who will risk hiu lifeovement of this kind.
5. He reported the Banco Agrario end its branches throughout theepartoante are now issuing an excessively large amount of Quetsales. For example, small ca&sininities and rural areas were flooded with Quetsales lrriodiatoly prior to Semana8U). The Banco issued them principally to new owners of divided properties with the explanation it waa to be used for the year's farming requirements but knowing very well that it would bo spent for wild celebrations during the Semana Santa Floats.
6. EEi^TIC has aakedod friend and political follower,wiio ieof the World Dank,

being printed because both the American Banking Koto Company and British sources of paper money have not received orders for this recent issue.
