be The following incidental facto say be pertinent:

A. Dr, Lopes nEBRARTE told ERRATIC that Gallic nao TORIEUfl, now Minister of Exterior Belstlons for Guatoneia, spread the runcr in Washington,prior to hlo departure to 'inmw the poat,tint tho CoBsuulste would stop thoir propaganda against the United States when ho, TORTELLo; aasamod office*

B. nBcently, Dr. Lopes IJUiflUGT said itnown fact tho Guatemalan Enfaaaay in .auhiagton conferred privately vlth Pretddent Eioonhowor and that lt Mas agreed In exchange for removing John Cabot the Guatenalans would cease their campaign agadnat tba United Statea and cooperate at Caracas.

He la popular with all olementa and classes. He haa workedong time underground against tba Coaiuniata but tea always refuood publicity and party affiliation ao be could remain acceptable to everyone* Ho cooflnsntially advised ERRATIC during bin IpSto campaign for the presidency*

2. AS an alternate Miniotor of Foreign Relations there la ^Lici Lois' BiXT TtftHKWA Bi>>. ERBHTIC thinks highly of the son;-but not of the father. The fatherery intelligent aen but heoose talker and aaauaae many airs* Be is from the old colonial aristocracy and this fact occaal anally overcomes him. Ho simply la not


cautious. Too eon, however, is nodoat, able, and an excellent public speaker. He has the confidence and backing of the old families of Guatemala.

olonel* Auturq BAHIHfcZ is the best choice for MinLatar ofreSto" Bopobllco. He waa educated In the United States* In Guatemala in tbe past he has hold the post of Minister of Agriculture and later Ministercfonae. He left office when OBI CO took control because he disliked his stem dictatorship. He predicted the CoaaaanisTt trend of theovera-nant and took part in tho first plot against AHSVALO. after which he waa exiled to Coata Rica* He la nowears old and has an intimate knowledge of the sources of revenue and financial aspeote of Guatemala.

ERRATIC never fails to mention in any eorioaa conversation hie appreciation of the problem jmt the canpeainos. He stated, this time, the worst social problem in Guatemala is the drinking of the canpeainos. He does not believe complete prohibitionolation bananas he does not think it could be successfully accomplished. However, he believes It worthy of thought to contemplate shifting the campesino taste from Guaro or Aguardiente to Wine. Guaro is almply poison but the Indian will seise any excuse to drink it. Tbe drinking of Gnaro aapa the essential energy of the country and podaoha the people. EHBATIC nadd if atLno were made available to them through Government measures, then thereemote chance the canm<wrino night bo prevailed upon to change his bahita* ERRATIC foala tha change wouldood one since he has noted tho difference betaeon the people who drink wine and thet The Chileans, Argentines* and others drink wine and profit from tbe vitamin and groat food value. It builds than np rather than tears people down* it could be imported ln bulk end ddatribated Cheaply duty free- KSRATXC states the natives think Aguardiente Is tatmOM or nector from the gods. Hany times he boaamily walking through tha woods* The father loads tbe procession and then comes tba wife, slater, and cMldrwi. Afterong drink from tbe bottle be will then pass it down the line to the other members of the family until everyone hasaste* Evan the smalt children areittle and babies' lips are wetted. He eays it la possible to evaluatehange to wine might Bake in tola example alone. He feels omntuaUyhift could well change the entire characterowerful element In Guatemalan eoelety and economy.

6. ERRATIC gave toix pagesotal of approximately fiffcy-five names of Coitaunista in Ouatemala which are attached bore-to.

7. For the Minif Agriculture BBtMTC would prefer Don^Meauel RAUtf . Heelf-taught agronomist and ERRATIC has observed tbo past Ministers of Agriculture bar* always been divorced froa reality and operated in theoretic eonfnstonl The Ministry has never boon of real help to tha agricaltorlsts because of tha political hacks and theoretical atodents who have iisaiowsil. the Ministry and it has accordingly aeesaplisbed nothing* ERRATIC lo vary Impressed with what Salvador has accompli abed for itsand would Ilka to do the sens for Gustssala. Tbs prosont Agrleultoro School in ChAtawala passes Its tins la football, target practice, etc.ough example tothe ImfTeeidvwnoas of that Ministry waa indicated when ERRATIC was Governor of San Hareoe. Ho was invited by tho local Ramd of tha Agricultural Station to asks an Inspection of spas Crops. fiERaSC arrived en hnTaahentt at'clock In tbs saralag near tha spentnteri sawrUBg place. He atopped at astore and aaksd precisely where ha could find the wan ha was to east* The wosan told hia to go through the fields until ba to the Boat stated dleoaaed aUpe crop be tbs one belonging to the nchool, He did so and foold that epokon thenother exsnpls is illustrated ln thaitbs al school to proTide training In coffee growing is located alUtade. whereas coffee only grows effectively up to anfeat* a the bsbb type as Roberto (JUlUlunEB of Salvador, ERRATIC desires outelde torfrniral sjf end Infonmtion* Prsoootly the Agriculturalas no central Information Roman.

However, by that tlaa, the planters were so discouraged by agent that all cultivation of It hod stopped ana,esult, tho body line returned In force, there being no deterrent^


A good prospect for tbe position ef Minister of Public Education iaKariano I, opes*rother of Snrloae LopcsgABAHTA.
