. Former Castro Aide Reported
Shot in Bolivian Guerrilla War
LA PAZ; Bolivia (P')-An army
communique said yesterday that
* Ernesto Che Guevara, once the
right-hand man of Cuba's Fidel
Castro, presumably was killed or
wounded Sunday in a clash in
The communique reported that
a violent clash between soldiers
and guerrillas had broken out in
the mountains and added: "The
rebels put up desperate resistance
and suffered five casualties,
among them being presumably
Ernesto Che Guevara."
At a meeting of the Organiza-
tion of American States in Wash-
ington last month Bolivian diplo-
mats Showed photographs which
they claimed proved that Gue-
vara was heading the guerrillas
in Bolivia. The photographs show-,
ed a man resembling Guevara'
with Bolivian and Cuban guer-
The area of the Sunday clash
was near Vallegrande, about 300
miles ,southeast of La Paz. The
communique put the scene at
four miles northwest of the near-
by town of Higueras.
The army suffered four killed
and four wounded in the fighting,
said the communique, which re-
ported that "operations continue
in the Higueras zone."
Press reports f r o m Valle-
grande said the fighting had be-
gun at about 1 p.m. Sunday and
raged for about five or six hours.
Theseuaccounts said that two of
the guerrillas were wounded and
if Guevara was not killed, he
might be one of the wounded.
The Bolivian army has been
pressing a search for Guevara
near Vallegrande for two weeks.
convinced that if he were killed
or captured the guerrilla move-
ment would collapse. The guer-
rillas began active operations in
Bolivia seven months ago.
Guevara was believed sighted
in the Vallegrande area 10 days
ago. Depositions of two Bolivian
guerrillas captured last week said
Guevara was sick and was mov-
ing about on a mule.
The newspaper Presencia, quot-
ing a high military source, said:
"If Che is among the killed, this
would be the last clash with the
guerrillas. No other action with
them could be expected."
As a guerrilla fighter of great
skill, Guevara led Castro's forces
in the Sierra Maestra Mountains
of eastern Cuba in the long revo-
lution that led to the downfall of
President Fulgencio Batista in
Under Castro as prime minis-
ter, Guevara became the econ-
omic boss of Cuba. When he mys-
teriously vanished in 1965, Castro
said Guevara had gone to carry
on the revolutionary fight else-
Guevara has been reported kill-
ed before. Shortly after he van-
ished from Cuba in April of 1965
he was said to have been killed
in the leftist revolt in the Do-
Later he was reported captured
in Peru. Another report said he
was hiding out in Argentina. Af-
ter the Bolivian army got what it
was convinced was evidence he
was leading a guerrilla movement
in Bolivia, it had to deny a report
Sept. 26 that he had been killed.
Regis Debray, the French writer
and Marxist now on trial in Ca-
miri, Bolivia has said Guevara
had organized the Bolivian guer-
rilla movement. Debray, who was
captured by army troops after
visiting guerrillas in the south-
east jungles, is charged with aid-
ing the guerrillas.

HOMECOMING '67 "
an equal opportunity employer
We've almost lost a good word, and we hate to see it go.
The movie industry may feel the same way about words such as colossal,
gigantic, sensational and history-making. They're good words-good sym-
bols. But they've been overused, and we tend to pay them little heed. Their
effectiveness as symbols is being depleted.
One of our own problems is with the word "opportunity." It's suffering sym-
bol depletion, too. It's passed over with scant notice in an advertisement.
It's been used too much and too loosely.
This bothers us because we still like to talk abput opportunity. A position
at Collins holds great potential. Potential for involvement in designing
and producing some of the most important communication systems in
the world. Potential for progressive advancement in responsibility and
income. Unsurpassed potential for pride-in-product.
And we wish we could use the word more often.
Collins representatives will visit your campus this year. Contact your
College Placement Officefor details.
