Dear General and Friend:

A couple of years ago, based onad acquired in your country and fromad prepared the attached list classifying politicians, labor leaders and others in ninegroups..

ft fow of these pooplo now have, perhaps, diaaopeared from the scene and many more have come up to positions of influence.

In connection with tba Sonata hearings and otherwise, it would bo helpfulould have thi3 list brought up-to-date, with any changes and corrections, additions and subtractions, which you mlRht doom necessary. For instance, you will noticeid not include Cuillormo Torriello in any of the ssume that he would fit into Similarly, it would beesa that Osegueda should be removed from Groupore dangerous classification? It is, perhaps, pertinent to add that in making the differentiation between Groups A' and nclude undor "A" those who can be shock troops and whom the Communist hierarchy la perfectly willing to saerlflce. In other words, they are tbe ones Ravines describes as the card-carrying mombers who promote strikes. Insurrection;riota, etc. In contrast, those InB are probably more danirerous than those inince many of them work behind the seenoa.

Tt Is my-fearreplacement by, pro-

bably,Texas, will ^Ivo some basis for

foollns at the Caracas Conference that his stand in respect of the Guatemalan Communists has,ertain extent, been repudiated or Bt leastray that this does not happen.

I listened on Sunday to tho broadcast over 3BC-Televialon on which Bonnoll appeared. Unfortunately, to my mind, it was very badly dono.. Amongst other things, thore was emphasized "lack pfesire forhat*Arbenz was not athat the United Fruit Company had offered too little and too late*. This was repeated several times, together with emphasis placed on the fact that the Company was"hatedand that, in faot, the Communist vote was largest in the United Fruit Company areas. nothing waa said of the real agricultural situatlon*and of other important factors. To16too much like the article in LIFE magazine rfVM*MT ew weeks ago, whloh had good things to say but also "WW.
