104-10266-10161: SUMMARY OF LICOOKY-1'S ACTIVITIES FROM 1961 THROUGH 1965

"(In the early fall of 1961) the day before I left (Mexico for Guatemala) I met Carlos Manuel Pellecer at the home of Edelberto Torres' son-in-law, Humberto Pineda...when I returned to Mexico (note: after her deportation), Bill (probably "Bill Mannix", true name Tom Hazlett) sent me to Venezuela to talk with Arevalo, using as a pretext the unauthorized changes Lyle Stuart made in my translation of The Shark and The Sardines. This book was just off the presses...(Pellecer incorporated me in some of the Guatemalan Communist activities)...with respect to Carlos Manuel Pellecer who has a much more difficult temperment and the usual Latin maie's self-consciousness about being dominated by any female intimately involved in his life, I could see the possibility of subtle, almost subliminal influence on him. More important, there was the opportunity to provide needed assistance to him in his exit from the Communist Party. (Beginning with the first month in which I knew Pellecer I had constantly emphasized to Bill that Pellecer would break with the Communists...In 1963 and early 1964 my attention, my time and my energy were more or less monopolized by Pellecer...in the latter part of 1964 and throughout 1965 I devoted myself to building the AEM to its present potential importance in Mexican intellectual and literary life."
