Governor Ademar de Barros, newly elected Governor of Sao Paulo, announced here today that he will not include Plinio Salgado, former leader of the neo-Nazi Intergralista Party, among the members of his provincial Cabinet.

Mr. de Barros had stated three weeks ago that he would name Salgado to the post of provincial Minister of Education. Sharp protests arose in the Brazilian press after that announcement. Now the Governor has decided to keep Salgado out of the Cabinet.
