    A PARTY OF VENEZUELAN POLICE AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS SETTLED DOWN IN A MIAMI HOTEL ON 14 AUGUST -- THEIR PLANS FOR TAKING FORMER DICTATOR MARCOS PEREZ JIMENEZ BACK TO CARACAS FOR TRIAL TEMPORARILY THWARTED.

    THE VENEZUELAN PARTY ARRIVED ON A CHARTERED DC-6 TRANSPORT PLANE AND HAD EXPECTED TO RETURN TO VENEZUELA WITH JIMENEZ IN A MATTER OF HOURS. HE WILL BE PUT ON TRIAL ON CHARGES OF LOOTING THE NATIONAL TREASURY OF $13,500,000 BEFORE FLEEING THE COUNTRY, IN 1958.
