Dr. Castillo, pro-Axis President of Argentina, last night surrendered to the revolutionary forces. It was officially announced in Buenos Aires that he had arrived at La Plata, a few miles down the river from the capital, and that he and his Cabinet had resigned. Dr. Castillo was released after signing his resignation.
