Leftist group occupies
Mexican embassies

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Leftists
peacefully occupied the Belgian and
Danish embassies yesterday to demand
freedom for political prisoners and bet-
ter living conditions for Mexico's poor.
A spokesman for the activists, Juan
Lopez, said, they belonged to the
National Democratic Popular Front, a
small leftist group active for the past
year among beasants and workers in
poor rural areas. Lopez said they were
unarmed:
HE CLAIMED there were "20 oc-
cupiers, including an eight-year-old
boy," at the Danish Embassy and

"maybe about a dozen" at the Belgian
mission.
Diplomatic officials described the ac-
tions as "invasions," the activists
called them "occupations" and a police
officer at one embassy said, "You could
probably call it a sit-in."
In a statement distributed to repor-
ters at the Danish Embassy, the
militants said the occupations were in-
tended "to unmask the Mexican gover-
nment, which puts on a democratic,
face. In our country, we die of hunger,
they take away our lands, they fire us
unjustly, they oppress and violate
peasants."
Lopez said the actions will continue
"until the 100 or so political prisoners
are freed and 600 persons who disap-
peared are located."
THE FRONT called for Mexicans to
demonstrate in the streets for an hour
this morning.
An unidentified spokesperson for the
leftists said in a telephone interview
that about 10 unarmed militants en-
tered the Belgian Embassy shortly af-
ter 11 a.m. (noon-EST) and demanded
to speak with Ambassador Ronald Wat-
teeuw. She claimed no one in the em-
bassy was being held captive.
The Front occupied the Swiss Em-
bassy for nine days last August to at-
tract public attention for similar
demands. Police forced them out after
a few minor scuffles.
President Jose Lopez Portillo's ad-
ministration enacted two amnesty laws
in 1977 and released 30 political
prisoners, most of them leftists accused
of bank holdups and other common
crimes committed in connection with
their political activities.

Puerto Rico victory
encourages Bush
NASHUA, N.H. - Republican presidential hopeful George Bush,
encouraged by his victory in Sunday's Puerto Rican primary, said yesterday
the Feb. 26 New Hampshire primary will prove that-his campaign has
nationwide support. Bush leads in convention delegates with 16 to Ronald
Reagan's seven, but he declined the label of front-runner in the GOP race.
The candidate put in a full day of campaigning yesterday, but is taking
today off to prepare for Wednesday night's debate between Republican
can dates.
Wonan dies in Chicago fire
CHICAGO - A five-day walkout strike by nearly 4,300 members of Fire
Fighters Local 2 continued yesterday, as recruits hired by the city to break
the strike underwent preliminary examinations prior to undergoing a two-
week crash course in fire fighting.
Denna Williams, 37, became the first person to die in a fire during the
strike, when fire struck her South Side apartment yesterday.
The decision to begin training replacements was the second major
attempt to break the strike, which city officials have said is illegal. Cook
County Circuit Judge John Hechinger has issued contempt of court citations
against the union and its leaders, imposing an aggregate $40,000 in fines for
each day the strike continues.

opens in Egypt
CAIRO, Egypt - Israel opened its first embassy in the Arab world
yesterday with a flag ceremony punctuated by heavy security, an emotional
Israeli speech, and cries of joy. "I am sure that other Arab leaders will join
our peace process, said Israeli Charge d'Affaires Yosef Hadass in a
statement he read in Hebrew, Arabic and English.
The brief ceremony was attended by about 30 Egyptian Jews. Security
was heavy outside the embassy, with uniformed police and plainclothes de
tectives standing guard.
Fraser returns from Japan
DETROIT - United Auto Workers President Douglas Fraser said
yesterday his trade mission to Japan received a positive response from
government leaders, but mixed reaction from Japanese automakers.
Fraser, who returned from Japan this past weekend, tried to convince
foreign car companies to build plants in the United States and resist flooding
the American auto market with Japanese-built cars.
The union chief said Honda officials told him they plan to break ground
on an American auto plant this year and hope to be building Japanese cars
using U.S. workers within two years.
Reagan apologizes for joke
HILLSBORO; N.H. - Ronald Reagan apologized yesterday to anyone
who might object to an ethnic joke he told about Poles and Italians recently,
but said he intended it as an example of humor he finds in poor taste. The
joke was told Saturday to Sen. Gordon Humphrey (R-N.H.) and other aides
and supporters as their campaign bus left Keene for Milford.
"No slur was intended and I apologize to anyone who was offended by
it," the presidential hopeful said. Asked if it would hurt his New Hampshire
campaign, Reagan said, "It will if people tryto make something of it," and if
he were unable to explain to "a number of people . . .who don't know what
my feelings are.
U.N. economic forecast grim
PARIS - Recent oil price hikes mean zero economic growth, double-
digit inflation, and increased unemployment for the U.S. and other non-
Communist industrialized nations in 1980, a United Nations agency said
yesterday.
The report, issued by the Organization of Economic Cooperation and De
velopment (OECD), said average growth among its 24 member countries
will drop from the one per cent, forecast last fall to around zero. The
increases insure double-digit inflation this year in the U.S., where originally
a 9.5 per cent increase was expected, OECD said.
Unemployment would go up to about 6.25 per cent of the work force in the
OECD countries on an average basis, the agency said. 4
