U.S. advisers in Salvador to stay


WASHINGTON (AP)- Despite earlier suggestions
that U.S. advisers would be out of El Salvador by Sep-
tember, Reagan administration officials are now
predicting a long-term American military presence
in the war-torn Central American nation.
Lt. Col. Jerry Grohowski, a Pentagon spokesman,
said U.S. military advisers will remain in El
Salvador for the "foreseeable future" as that coun-
try's military-civilian junta contipues its war against
leftist insurgents.
LAST WEEK, Thomas Enders, assistant secretary
of state for inter-American affairs, told a House
committee that. "we expect to continue to send
trainers to El Salvador to meet particular needs that
may arise."

"Numbers will increase again, but we do not an-
ticipate that the numbers will grow beyond the high
mark of our effort this year," he said.
Grohowski said there are now 31 non-combat U.S.
advisers in El Salvador, down from 56, the number of
advisers dispatched last, March when the Reagan
administration vowed to "draw the line" against
"communist aggression" in the small, impoverished
THE CONTINUED U.S. military presence comes
despite a Defense Department statement last March
that U.S. advisers would be brought home by Sep-
tember. In that statement, however, the Pentagon
left open the possibility that "some others might be

sent in."
Grohowski said the administration has lived up to
its public statement because the advisers dispatched
to El Salvador earlier this year have returned and
have been replaced by other Americans.
LAST WEEK, AS part of a $5.8 billion foreign aid.
bill, the Senate voted to cut off U.S. aid to El Salvador
unless President Reagan certified everyi'six months
that the junta has made a concerted effort to halt
human rights abuses by its forces.
The Senate approved that requirement with the
stated goal of bringing "an end to the indiscriminate
torture and murder of. Salvadoran citizens." The
House is expected to approve similar language.

SPOKANE, Wash. (UPI) -
Medical psychologist Lonnie Barba
says for many people sex isn't as
much fun as it used to be and has, in
fact, become work.
Barbach, 34, said when she was
younger peer groups influenced
teenagers to avoid sex, but that has
changed in recent years. "Now the
ante is up because children as young
as -13 are being coerced into
sexuality by their peers.
"THAT'S WHERE people are
facing a lot of problems, because
they're becoming sexual before they
are ready," the University of
California professor of Medical
Psychology told a workshop in
She said sex "has become less fun
and more work, because American
society has created unreasonable
sexual roles for both men and
SHE SAID women are taught
early in childhood to avoid sex.
"Women are not supposed to be
sexual. There's a real strong feeling"

that you won't be decent," said Bar-
bach, adding that women become
defensive about their sexuality and
use it as a tool to catch men.
"When a woman becomes angry
with her partner, she withholds sex
from him. They're not focusing on
what they need and may not' get
much pleasure out of it."
MEN, SHE SAYS, are "expected
to know everything and be more
than willing to teach. She called that
situation the "ready-teddy syn-
"We give machines more con-
siderations than we allow men in
sex," she said.
"It makes sex goal-oriented. It
creates a split between simple
physical interaction and sex."
She concluded that partners
"mustadiscuss their sexual relation-
ships as seriously as if they were
talking about buying a house,
sparing few details.
"Love or an emotional relation-
ship is one of the most important
things in sexual activity," she said.

Bomb blast near guerrilla checkpoint

ZRARIYEH, Lebanon (AP) - An ex-

"I had to pull the body of one little girl

a citrus grove across the street from
the restaurant.
"This is the start of a new war," said
the physician, who,serves with a unit of

fighting, just bombs. You don't know
when they will go off or where."

It wasn't known what group or person
might have been responsible for the
bomb. "There is a lot of speculation,"
the physician said.
There are indications of growing'
uneasiness between the pro-Amal
Shiites and the Palestinians. The
groups have been apparent targets in,
the wave of previous bombings that
have killed 36 people in the past 11 days.
A little-known group called "The
Front for the Liberation of Lebanon
from Foreigners" took responsibility
for the previous fatal explosions.
The PLO claims the group is a front
for Israeli agents.

NEW YORK (UPI) - College-bound
high school students scored just as
highly in this year's Scholastic Aptitude
Tests as they did in 1980, the College
Board said yesterday - only the second
time in 18 years SAT scores did not
"It is still too early to predict whether
this signals the end of the score decline
or simply an interruption in the 18-year
trend," said Robert Cameron,
executive director of research and
development for the College Board.
THE LONG slide in SAT scores,
dating from 1963, has alarmed
educators, parents, taxpayers and fed
fears the nation's schools are failing.
The fears have been reinforced by
evidence of poor performance in

reading, writing and arithmetic among
many high school graduates.
The test is a barometer of school per-
formance that is considered in the
college admissions process. This year,
it was taken by 1.5 million students.
