COLOMBO, Ceylon OP) - Many
of Ceylon's' youthful rebels are
being trained for jungle warfare
by a lean, graying guerilla fight-
er who predicts this strategic is-
land eventually will fall to a local
style communism.
To the ultra-leftist insurgents
this man is known as "Tilak," a
veteran who fought against
French rule in Indochina and Al-
geria. He came home to Ceylon
three years ago to help build an-
other revolution.
In more than a month of civil
war savagery, Tilak says, about
5,000 rebels and members of
Ceylon's security forces have
been killed or wounded.
He admits most of the casual-
ties have been suffered by the
insurgents, but says their morale
is high. However, his expression
of confidence in ultimate victory
is challenged by reporters and
increasingly optimistic govern-
ment communiques.

Ceylon's coalition government
of Prime Minister Sirimavo
Bandaranaike insists the rebels
have been crushed and those left
in the jungles have no option but
to surrender or die.
In addition, reporters who tra-
vel upcountry feel the police and
army have gained the upper hand
in nine areas where the insur-
gents have concentrated their
forces.
Tilak claims a force of 48,000
insurgents.
Lt. Gen. Don Sepala Attygalle,
Ceylon's army commander, re-
cently estimated rebel strength
at a minimum of 10,000, although
he conceded he had no real no-
tion of the size of this "phantom
enemy," consisting primarily of
young men and women who work
in the villages by day and fig t
in the jungle by night.
Tilak, an admitted marxist,
said: "We will take Colombo, and
that means Ceylon, in three
years."
Tilak named the top leader of
the youth rebellion as HRohana
Wijiyoweera and said he is be-
ing held at Kyets Prison north
on the island. His second in com-
mand was identified by the guer-
illa as Mahinda Wijesekera, also
in jail.
Ceylon's coalition r e g i m e,
which formed after elections a
year ago, is composed of Ban-
daranaike's Sri Lanka Freedom
party, the pro-Moscow wing of
the Communist party, and the
Trotskyite party. This is hardly
a reactionary setup-but ilak
said it isn't moving fast enough
toward socialism to suit the coun-
try's youth.
"The boys see no future in the
present way of life with more
than one in eight people out of
work," he said.
He insisted that the insurgents
want to establish their own brand
of socialism without help from
sympathizers overseas.
"We don't want big power in-
tervention of any kind," Tilak
asserted. "America and Russia
are both helping the government
with planes and military equip-
ment, but we think they should
stay out of it.

Schlitz Malt Liquor.
Our sign isTaurus,the Bull.
Can you handle us?
Tremendous strength, power, reliability, dependable good taste.
That's what Taurus is known for. Schlitz Malt Liquor, too.
Venus, the ruling planet, makes Taurus sociable, fond of fun, and
able to inspire friendship in others. Maybe you and the Bull should
get together. Maybe you'd hit it off.
But maybe not.
It depends on your sign. Because Taurus has a powerful mean streak,
There's a helluva fire in the Bull.
So check your stars. They'll tell you straight if you're the kind of
person who can meet Schlitz Malt Liquor head-on.
Nobody makes malt liquor like Schlitz. Nobody.
