U.S.-Germany ties,
sour on GI issue


BONN, Germany ()-An unusual
number of anti-U.S. Army inci-
dents in Germany last week has
added to alliance strain and it
revealed an "ugly American"
image of the GI among a small
but growing number of Germans,
once among the most solidly pro-
American allies.
The incidents ranged from a
rare demonstration at the U.S.
Embassy in Bonn to protest over
shock disclosures of GIs torturing
German soldiers.
Chancellor Willy Brandt's wor-
ried government has tried to play
down the anti-American incidents,
fearing they will hand fresh am-
munition to U.S. congressmen seek-
ing to pull out the 300,000 U.S.
troops in Germany.
Brandt and most other West Ger-
mans want the, troops to stay, as
part of an American commitment
to defend Germany against any
Soviet threat.
Militant leftists claiming to rep-
resent 250,000 youth mebmers of
Brandt's own Social Democratic
party urged Brandt last weekend
to demand a U.S. pullout.
Brandt refused.
With U.S.-German relations al-
ready strained by dollar and trade

woes, these were among last wek's
troublesome incidents:
-Seven hundred Germans from
Nurenberg bearing a petition sign-
ed by 80,000 citizens chanted slo-
gans outside the U.S. Embassy
against plans to make a local
forest into a U.S. tank base. Two
lawmakers from Brandt's own So-
cialist party joined them.
The angry petition expressed fear
that German children would be
"mutilated by exploding abandoned
ammunition" in the picnic area.
-On the same day, protests by
the head of the German police-
man's union over a 1964 incident
caused Interior Minister Hans-Die-
trich Genscher to reveal long-sec-
ret information that U.S. troops
had mistreated and in some cases
even tortured German border po-
lice in overly-realistic joint ma-
Genscher told a parliamentary
committee that Germans posing as
"enemy" forces were subjected to
illegal interrogation methods by
GIs, including Green Berets. Some
were forced to strip, had dogs set
against their backs and endured
extreme heat and noise. One GI
beat a German "prisoner," he

Argentina ready



BUENOS AIRES (Reuter)-Argentina is only slowly beginning to
adjust to the shock of the Peronist-led victory in this month's general
elections, the first to be held in the country in almost a decade.
People are gradually beginning to grasp the fact that Peronism
will be back in power just over 17 years after a military uprising
ended former strongman President Juan Peron's nine-year rule and
sent him into exile.
Gen. Alejandro Lanusse, the present president, has offered his
government's full cooperation to give Peron's hand-picked candidate,
Dr. Hector Campora, a complete picture of. the affairs of state before
he takes office.

Speaker Clinic, March21
How your speakers sound to you is largely a subjective
matter. But speaker performance can be measured
objectively too, and such measurement can give you
valuable insight into your sound system.
That's what our EPI Speaker Clinic is all about..Using
special electronic equipment, an expert technician tests
these characteristics of speaker performance:
LINEAR FREQUENCY-Shows how much of the audio
range a speaker can produce and how accurately,
pinpoints exaggerated or diminished response at any given
frequency range.
DISPERSION-Measure's a speaker's ability to radiate
linear sound equally, shows what you hear (or don't hear)
at different locations.
HARMONIC DISTORTION-Shows how your speakers
reproduce different harmonic mixtures,
isolates causes of "mushy" or
harsh sound reproduction.
IMPEDANCE-Measures electrical
resistance to amplifier input
at different frequencies.T E
When your speakers are tested
you'll receive a graph with curves
showing the results of each test
-and we'll help you interpret them.
Don't miss this unusual opportunity.
Remember, it happens Wednesday,
March 21, at Douglass Sound-
and it's absolutely FREE!

underground newspaper, is ten-
tatively scheduled to resume pub-
lication in early April.
The Sun is normally published
every two weeks and claims a
circulation of 12,000.
The Sun's presses halted Jan. 23
when the Rainbow People's Party
(RPP)-which subsidized the paper.'
-could not longer afford its losses.
The Sun is presently more than
$1,000 in debt.
In the past, RPP has made up
the difference between the Iews-
paper's $300 to $1,200 advertising
revenue per issueand its $850 pro-
duction cost,
Despite the precarious financial
position of the Sun,however, the
editors plan to continue the policy
of "Sell the Sun and keep the
But the Sun, according to its edi-
tors, will be self-supporting in the'
future, depending solely on revenue
from ads and subscriptions.
Moreover, it will print only the
number of pages it can afford.
Along with the change in finan-
cial support, the Sun hopes to alter
its content in an attempt to reach
a broader portion of the "rain-
bow community."
"We hope to widen the emphasis
of the paper and include more re-
porting of community events," says
Managing Editor Linda Ross.
She feels that the Sun may have
alienated some people because of
the narrow scope of the paper,

The staff says it will do more
news reporting and investigative
articles, as it continues to report
RPP policy and to include RPP
members on its editorialboard,
The Sun's editors say also they
hope to get more people actively
involved in the production of the

stated, "A newspaper can only re-

newspaper's inception two years
The staff meanwhile hopes to re-
locate the Sun in a new office. It
has established temporary head-
quarters at 1510 Hill St.

This has brought a relaxation of tension between the Peronists
and the miiltary and relations became even more cordial when
severe police measures against Peronist demonstrations were called
off and jubilant Peronists were allowed to continue noisy but peaceful
victory celebrations undisturbed.
But these exchanges will not necessarily mean an end to friction.
Tensions have relaxed before only to build up again at short notice,
such as when Peron ended his exile and returned to Argentina last
November for a four-week visit.
Peron, now 77, was annoyed at tight security measures which
prevented his supporters from greeting him on his arrival and at the
government's refusal to lift a ban on his candidacy for the presidency.
Another looming point of friction between the miiltary and the
Peronists is Campora's announcement that he will rule in Peron's
name. In fact, the campaign slogan "Campora to government, Peron
to power" irritated the military.
The government initiated court action seeking a ban on the front
on the grounds that if the slogan were implemented it would mean
power being exercised by somebody not elected to office.

The arrival of visitors causes
the inmates to beat their feet in
unison against the doors. On one
occasion they broke the main gate
down and stoned the nurses.
One inmate, who lost her hus-
band in last year's offensive,
dances alone and bare-breasted in
her room. Next door a woman who
has just escaped and been brought
back pregnant shouts defiantly
through her bars that she is not
pregnant, she is still menstruating.
