  • Description

    The President -elect of the Argentine, Arturo Frondizi, has denied that he is seeking diplomatic relations with Red China, but admits he is studying the idea. Frondizi will seek also closer ties with Washington. Ten million Argentines voted in the election in which leftwinger Frondizi swamped Ricardo Balbin. They were once close friends... neither offered a concrete platform of election promises. But Frondizi got the nod from exiled dictator, Juan Peron, and that endorsement was worth two million votes. Balbin, here casting his ballot, was runner-up in the voting and by law gets one third of the seats in the Argentine congress. Frondizi's sweep gives him two thirds of the seats. He's expected to take office on May 1, by which time he may solve the problem of election debts he owes to his varied supporters - including Peronists, communists, neo-fascists and anti-communist leftists. They're all there....
