Vicente Saenz, Union Democratica Centro-Americana leader, addressed the Salvadoran governing Junta on 2 January, during his visit from Mexico with Juan Jose Meza. He warned that the Junta's knowledge of Communist activity was obsolete, since new leaders had taken the place of the old established personalities. He advised the immediate development of a labor program to neutralize the appeal of Communism to the labor classes. Saenz added that labor leaders could easily be found to support a just program, and that capitalists would not block it either. 2. Following Saenz' speech, Juan Jose 1eza took the floor, and after censuring the Figueres regime in Costa Rica for obstructing the Nicaraguan revolutionary movement, he made some predictions about the future of the movement. He said that the invasion against Sonioza would have to be postponed indefinitely since Figueres had let the opportune moment slip by',, and that when the time came, Costa hioa would not be the base of operations? He also ruled out Uuatemala, and added that Cuba would probably try to get back the armaments which had been lent to support the movement, and which are now held by the Nicaraguans Neza conjectured that President Prio, thinking the Nicaraguan invasion a lost cause, might lend the arms to Venezuela or Colombia. 3, 43za said that the revolutionists' major problem was keeping control of the arms, and he begged the Junta to store them in El Salvador. His request was denied, although there was some indication that the decision was not finale, since Major Oscar Osorio,, head of the Junta, told Meza to return to Mexico and await a call within the next four to eight weeks, This df&,,Ll is hereby re p? ;?;.: CONFli t `i 3, ;, ? 1:rF.3 the the letter of C 17 from the Archivist or Next Rev;(:-?v nw Document No. NO CHANGE in DECLASS] X ss.
