Within my theory of the assassination it would be important for any conspirators to be able to cover up any potentially damning information that could lead inquiring minds to those same conspirators.

As I understand it Eugene V. Rostow, Dean of the Yale School of Law, was the first to suggest that the Federal Government take the lead in the investigation of the assination of John F. Kennedy. I also believe that the record shows that John J. McCloy played a very "strong" role in guiding that investigation.

A quick glance at Eugene Rostow's career shows that the first position that he held as a lawyer was for the same firm that John J. McCloy was working for, Cravath, deGersdorff, Swaine and Wood.

While a member of the Kennedy Administration John J. McCloy drafted a bill that led to the establishment of the US Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. As I understand it, in 1981, with a push from McCloy, President Ronald Reagan appointed Eugene Rostow director of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, making Rostow the highest-ranking Democrat in the Reagan administration.

While Eugen Rostow and McCloy did differ over Japanese Internment during WWII, overall the Rostow brothers and McCloy seem to have had a very close (and long term) working relationship.

It seems possible to me that having a distinguished person such as Eugene Rostow pushing for the creation of a "Warren" type commission could have been influenced by like minded persons such as John J. McCloy who did have a current and future relationship with Rostow. Since my theory suggests that the assassination may have been planned as a result of John F. Kennedy's change of direction in nuclear talks with the Soviets it seems interesting that the man who suggested the creation of the "Warren" type commission would be selected to continue McCloy's work in the field of Arms Control.

Law School Dean Eugene Rostow Dies

Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Eugene V. Rostow, a law school dean who served in foreign policy positions for both Democratic and Republican presidents, died Monday of congestive heart failure at age 89.

Beginning in World War II and continuing through the Cold War, Rostow moved between the nation's universities and government service.

Rostow was undersecretary of state in the late 1960s when the nation's involvement in Vietnam was growing. He sought to establish breathing space for the South Vietnamese so they could govern themselves, his son, Victor, told The Washington Post.

At that same time his brother, Walt Rostow, was a special assistant to President Lyndon Johnson advocating military action in Vietnam.

Eugene Rostow was dean of the law school at Yale University from 1955 to 1965 and was credited with revamping the curriculum and elevating the school's reputation.

An adviser to the State Department in the early 1940s and again in the early 1960s, he became undersecretary of state for political affairs in 1966. He was head of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency during the early part of President Reagan's administration.

Rostow was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Aug. 25, 1913, and reared in New Haven, Conn. He graduated from Yale in 1933 as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He then studied economics at King's College, part of England's Cambridge University.

After returning to the United States he studied at Yale's law school, where he was editor of the Yale Law Journal. He practiced briefly with a major Wall Street law firm and then joined the Yale law faculty in 1938. He became a full professor six years later.

He took a leave of absence from Yale during World War II to serve in this country and abroad as an official of the Lend-Lease Administration, dealing with problems of providing supplies to America's allies.

In addition to his sons, Victor and Nicholas, survivors include his wife, the former Edna Greenberg, to whom he was married for 69 years, of Alexandria, Va.; a daughter, Jessica, of New Haven; two brothers, former National Security Adviser Walt Whitman Rostow of Austin and Ralph Emerson Rostow of Sarasota, Fla.; and six grandchildren.

Rostow's full name was Eugene Victor Debs Rostow, recalling the Socialist politician and presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs.

Brother Walt Whitman Rostow:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walt_Whitman_Rostow

Walt Whitman Rostow (also known as Walt Rostow or W.W. Rostow) (October 7, 1916 – February 13, 2003) was an American economist and political theorist who served as Special Assistant for National Security Affairs to U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Prominent for his role in the shaping of American policy in Southeast Asia during the 1960s, he was a staunch anti-communist, and was noted for a belief in the efficacy of capitalism and free enterprise. Rostow served as a major adviser on national security affairs under the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. He supported American military involvement in the Vietnam War. In his later years he taught at Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin with his wife, Elspeth Rostow, who would later become dean of the school. He wrote extensively in defense of free enterprise economics, particularly in developing nations. Rostow was famous especially for writing the book The Stages of Economic Growth: A non-communist manifesto (1960) which became a classic text in several fields of social sciences.

His older brother, Eugene Rostow, also held a number of high government foreign policy posts.

....Walt Rostow was born in New York City to a Russian Jewish immigrant family. His parents were active socialists and their three sons, Eugene Victor Debs Rostow, Ralph Waldo Emerson Rostow and Walt Whitman Rostow, were named after Eugene V. Debs, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Walt Whitman. Rostow attended Yale University, graduating at age 19 and completing Ph.D. dissertation in 1940. He also won a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Balliol College, Oxford. In 1936, during the Edward VIII abdication crisis, he assisted the broadcaster Alistair Cooke, who reported on the events for the NBC radio network. After completing his education he started teaching economics at Columbia University....

During World War II he served in the Office of Strategic Services under William Joseph Donovan. Among other tasks, he participated in selecting targets for U.S. bombardment. (Nicholas Katzenbach would later joke, "I finally understand the difference between Walt and me[...] I was the navigator who was shot down and spent two years in a German prison camp, and Walt was the guy picking my targets.")......

...Rostow became Assistant Chief of the German-Austrian Economic Division in the United States Department of State in Washington, D.C., immediately after the war. From 1946 to 1947, he returned to Oxford to teach as the Harmsworth Professor of American History. Rostow became the Assistant to the Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Europe in 1947, and was involved in the development of the Marshall Plan.

He spent a year in 1949 at Cambridge University as the Pitt Professor of American History and Institutions. Rostow was Professor of Economic History at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1950 to 1961 and a staff member of the Center for International Studies, MIT, from 1951 to 1961. In 1958, he became a speechwriter for President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

In 1960 Rostow joined the Kennedy campaign, helping to coin such memorable campaign phrases as "Let's get this country moving again," "The New Frontier," and "The Development Decade." His ability to couch academic concepts in terms accessible to the layman was always his strong suit.

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy appointed Rostow as Deputy Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, reporting to McGeorge Bundy. Late in 1961, he was then appointed as counselor of the Department of State and Chairman of the Policy Planning Council, Department of State....

Our next speaker includes Andover, Yale, and Yale Law School in his

background. He has been assigned to our embassies abroad for many

years. For example, he was in the "hot spot" as head of the political

section at Caracas, and he has been the legal officer both in Mexico and

in Germany.

In addition, his experience encompasses a number of United States-

United Nations participating projects, in which he has had administrative

responsibilities.

Currently he has the impressive title that you see in the program,

Deputy Director for Inter-American Regional Political Affairs, U. S.

Department of State ; he is also our alternate representative to the Council

THE ROLE OF PRIVATE ENTERPRISE IN THE ALLIANCE

FOR PROGRESS

Mr. John M. Cates, Jr. : Thank you.

I am here today representing Theodore Moscoso, who is the Coordina-

tor for the Alliance for Progress and the director for Latin America

for AID.

I confessed to my colleague from the Inter-American Development

Bank, Señor Iraneta, and also to Mr. Dale, that I am really not and I

cannot pose as an expert on patents and trademarks, nor do I in any

way intend to touch on the field of the previous speaker.

What I would like to do very briefly is to say a little bit about what

the Alliance for Progress is and where we think it's going and why, and

stress the importance of private investment abroad and the relationship of

economic development to stable political and social conditions.....

and social reforms. Reforms have to be made in tax programs, although

I don't intend to get into that or our own tax problems here.

But, nevertheless, as you know, there are many countries in Latin

America and other parts of the world that are looked upon as tax havens.

Some of these tax climates have been so favorable that the few have had

the champagne and the poor have had mostly hunger.

And in Venezuela before the recent reforms began, just to give you an

example, there were some figures, that may be a little high, that 85 per cent

of the wealth was in two per cent of the people's hands, while taxes, in

our sense, were non-existent.

I think it is important to recall, at a meeting like this—that we are a

middle class nation, we are a bourgeois people. I don't know about the

rest of you here, but most of our ancestors worked very hard with their

hands. And the concept now of paying our way and sharing our wealth

through some sort of a tax program is something that is so much a part

of our own society that I think we forget the extent to which this is not

true in certain other countries of the hemisphere.

I mention this problem of taxation to introduce the Alliance for Prog-

ress relationship. Tax reform is one of the. steps expected to be taken

by Latin American countries wishing to meet the standards established by

Punta del Este as a prerequisite for help under this mutual aid program.

So much for how and why it came about. Next, it's quite obvious that

if you're going to build up private industry you have got to have a market.

And if you are going to have a market, you have got to have the people

in the market having some money to spend.

This gets us into a favorite topic of a man named Walt Rostow, a

classmate of mine, whose book called Economic Growth has had an enor-

mous success around the world as the first successful intellectual attack

on Marxist precepts.....

John Martin Cates Jr., a retired lawyer and former Foreign Service officer, died on July 14 while on a visit to Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. He was 82 and lived in Nassau, the Bahamas.

The cause was a stroke, his family said.

A native of Denver, Mr. Cates graduated from Yale University and Yale Law School and was admitted to the bar in California, Washington and New York. Starting in 1947, he worked for the State Department as an expert on the United Nations and its specialized agencies, becoming a familiar figure skilled at lobbying United Nations diplomats from Latin America for their votes.

He later served in various positions at the United States embassies in West Germany, Mexico, Venezuela and Switzerland, as well as at the Organization of American States. He advised the United States Mission to the United Nations on Latin American affairs and acted as its liaison to representatives of the region from 1963 to 1970.

On the Block, Grande Dame Décor

.....Gloria Guinness, the Mexican hothouse beauty who was one of Truman Capote's swans, did not know Nelia Barletta de Cates, a woman whose severe good looks were complemented by a pair of Bulgari rings -- one emerald, the other ruby -- worn on her pinky fingers. But their lives intersected at 18 Avenue Matignon in Paris, in an apartment they occupied at different times, through different styles and certainly, with different men, for nearly 50 years.

Avenue Matignon runs along the Tuileries toward the Rue du Faubourg St.-Honoré, past Alexandre the hairdresser, where the Duchess of Windsor, herself a frequent guest at No. 18, had her chignons done, and past Christie's, where on March 18 the contents of the apartment will be auctioned....

....a set of eight Louis XVI chairs by Jean-Baptiste Tilliard, have not been on the open market since Mrs. Guinness and her husband, Loel, a member of the British banking family, bought them in the mid-1950's. They were sold to Mrs. Cates, who bought the apartment from Mr. Guinness in the late 1980's. ...

...Mrs. Cates, born in the Dominican Republic to an Italian immigrant who made his fortune from car dealerships, lived in the apartment until her death last August from pancreatic cancer. A tall woman with an angular profile and a plantation of silver hair, Mrs. Cates favored the Grecian drapes of Madame Grès -- there were more than 60 Grès dresses in her closet at the time of her death, according to the executor of the French portion of her estate, Deeda Blair, and she traveled below the media's radar, despite a litigious history with her two children over a family trust.

''Nelia was very controlled, emotionally and in every other way,'' said Nan Kempner, a friend of many years, who saw her mainly in Nassau, in the Bahamas, and New York, where Mrs. Cates also had homes. ''I don't think much got under her skin.''

All that is known reliably about the origins of Gloria Rubio von Furstenberg Fahkry Guinness is that she was born in Mexico to a left-wing newspaperman. Very possibly she was a German spy during the Second World War, operating out of a hat shop in Madrid....

...Guests at Mrs. Cates's dinners were treated to delicious food, and individual menus were inscribed in silver ink on leaves from the garden. But, as a New York friend, Phyllis Farley, said, ''It never occurred to Nelia that T-shirts existed at the Gap as well as at Hermès.''

And though she found comfort with her second husband, Jack Cates, a lawyer and Yale graduate who belonged to a quartet that often insisted on singing at parties (''You'd sit down next to him and he'd burst into 'Boola Boola,' '' Mrs. Kempner said), she was estranged from her son and daughter.

Miguel Barletta, who lives in Santo Domingo, said he had not spoken to his mother since 1976, when they disagreed over the use of a trust established by his uncle and by his grandfather, Amadeo Barletta, who opened the first General Motors dealership in the Dominican Republic (and later in Cuba, where he was publisher of the newspaper El Mondo)....

...Today the apartment on Avenue Matignon belongs to a Russian businessman, who bought it for about $10 million last year....

DOMINICAN REP.: Lese Majeste

Monday, May. 27, 1935

It was lèse majesté for the Italian consul, Amadeo Barletta, to break the tobacco monopoly of the Dominican Republic's Dictator Rafael Leonidas Trujillo. It was lèse majesté against Benito Mussolini, a greater dictator than Trujillo, when Trujillo clapped Barletta into jail and confiscated his tobacco company on dubious charges of an assassination plot (TIME, May 13). Last week a third and greater act of lèse majesté was in the making, as Mussolini moved to get his consul out of jail.

The third would have been against the U. S. Government, which for 112 years has reserved for itself alone the right to spank Latin American troublemakers. But President Roosevelt has shrugged off the responsibilities of the Monroe Doctrine, told Latin America that the Colossus of the North, reformed into a Good Neighbor, would not forcibly interfere in its affairs. In theory this means that, in such a case as Barletta's, the U. S. would let Mussolini do his own spanking, send his own warboat to Santo Domingo, where Dictator Trujillo quietly runs one of the world's most efficient little Terrors. However, in practice, an Italian warboat in the Caribbean would hurt U. S. prestige as much as it would hurt Trujillo. For that reason the State Department last week called in the Dominican Republic's Minister to the U. S., Rafael Brache, put a quiet little bee in his ear. Minister Brache sent his Government a long cablegram, flew down to Santo Domingo to amplify it. Last week, before he had arrived, Trujillo set $50,000 bail for Barletta. Barletta's friends began trying to scrape up the $50,000 and for the moment Mussolini put his warboat back in his pocket.

...If C.B. Smith knew Barletta it would not only be a link to de Mohrenschildt but to another director of his company, Jose M. Bosch Lamarque. Bosch Lamarque supported Castro then turned against him in 1959. He was Castro's chief contact with Jules Dubois, a journalist and Army intelligence vet who helped engineer the Guatemala coup in 1954. Dubois' old underground contract, David Salvador, founded the anti-communist 30th of November Movement. A Cuban, identified by the Secret Service as belonging to 30th of November, said during an arms deal on November 21, 1963 that the financial backers of his group would soon "take care of Kennedy."492

A national 30th of November leader, Jesus Fernandez Hernandez, was the resident, in 1962 and 1963, of Hernando's Hideaway. He was leasing the house from the Keys Realty Company. Rolando Cubella's co-plotter in the AM/LASH plot was Eugenio Rolando Martinez, the owner of the CIA front, Keys Realty, which owned Hernando's Hideaway where Kensington witnessed the Rambler similar to George Gordon Wing's. Martinez was also the skipper of the Collins Radio ship Rex during its ill-fated raid on Cuba in late October 1963 -- a fact attributed to Frank Sturgis by Peter Dale Scott in Crime and Cover-Up. Scott adds that Sturgis was probably involved with this raid as well. Sturgis was a long-time associate of Eugenio Martinez.493

Bosch Lamarque was an original supporter of Carlos Bringuier's Directorial Revolucionario Estudiantil (DRE) and Alpha 66 which was linked to three attempts on Castro including the attempt involving the Odios.494 DRE and Alpha 66 grew out of the group originally funded by Bosch Lamarque, and DRE had overlapping goals and personnel with 30th of November.495 It is therefore probable that de Mohrenschildt's fellow oil company employee Bosch Lamarque was one of the financial backers who would soon "take care of Kennedy."

Yet another director of CVOVT, Jose I. de la Camara, was an employee of Augustin Batista Falla's Trust Company of Cuba. The Batista Falla family was behind the Lake Pontchartrain training camp where Loran Hall and Gerry Patrick Hemming were training Cuban exiles.496 Bringuier accused Oswald of attempting to infiltrate this very camp after Oswald allegedly went there with David Ferrie.497 And of course Hall and Hemming bring us full circle back to Hernando's Hideaway. The FBI report, which Michael Kensington wrote about (CD 1179) links Hall and Hemming to Dick Whatley, a former Brigade 2506 trainer in Guatemala, whose address on that report was near Hernando's Hideaway. Also, according to Marita Lorenz, Hemming was among those who left from a Miami safehouse and drove to Dallas in a station wagon to kill Kennedy.498....

The White Baron had continuing connections to the same groups which supplied,

funded, and supported the alliance of anti-Castro groups which stood to gain from the

fall of Cuba and the further exploitation of the Caribbean and the Bahamas.

That de Mohrenschildt looked away from Cuba and toward Haiti was no problem;

that foresight made him a part of the larger context of the assassination, and gave meaning, I think, to his relationship with Oswald.

With members of the Batista (Fallal family, he helped to establish the Cuba-

Venezuela Oil Trust Co.;

it was less important that a Pantipac Oil Company agent who was involved in that operation came from an

exploitation company owned by the Buckley family, and that through the Buckleys,

de Mohrenschildt could be indirectly connected to Manuel Artime and E.

Howard Hunt; rather with the Baron's philosophy and motivation, it would be inevitable he

would work with individuals and groups having such connections.

In fact, his earlier connections with the Batista Falla family would give

him theoretical access to the Lake Pontchartrain project itself. The other

Cuba-Venezuela Oil Trust Co. partner, Trujillo-associate Amadeo Barletta,

The goal of that de Mohrenschildt project was the exploitation of Cuba: "We owned about one-half

of the country under lease. When Castro took over, it was forfeited." Like the casino

operations represented by Lansky and Trafficante, de Mohrenschildt and his investment allies had enough motive to want Cuba to be

regained for exploitation, and, in the process, be rid of a model for other countries which might begin to resist such exploitation, legal or illegal.

George de Mohrenschildt was probably double- hatting through most of his career.

If we reverse the usual explanations of his Mexican- Central American-Guatemalan tour, the story makes at least as much sense: the Baron would then be

on a government intelligence assignment in Mexico, and on an exploitation tour in Guatemala, with the government report-

writing a rather thin cover (why would the United States want an intelligence report on the Bay of Pigs staging?)....
